Rio has reached a town called Amande in a neighboring kingdom. Surprisingly, the town has dishes from modern-day Japan that immediately become nostalgic for Rio because of Haruto. The ruler of the town, Lady Liselotte, is responsible for these dishes—which makes Rio wonder if she’s reincarnated from Earth as well.
He visits the merchant guild to buy more ingredients for his trip. The employee who assists him introduces herself as Lotte, who seems to have taken an interest in Rio. After Rio leaves, it is revealed that Lotte is actually Lady Liselotte.
While continuing with his journey, Rio is attacked by a young half-beast girl named Latifa. She’s an assassin sent by the House of Huguenot who has been treated like a slave. Rio successfully subdues her and takes off her collar of submission. She begs Rio to join him on his travels since she doesn’t know where to go or what to do now.
The two continue to head East towards the Wilderness. Rio concludes that Latifa is also reincarnated from Earth, due to her knowledge of modern food and Japan. It’s also shown that she’s the little girl from the bus that Haruto was in before it crashed.
Latifa starts to see Rio as an older brother figure. They set up camp in a mysterious forest. The episode ends at a cliffhanger, with a magical wolf showing up at their camp while Latifa is asleep.
