Servant- Please go back. Clavis-sama will not meet with anyone.
Clavis- What are you doing?
Randy- Hello, Clavis-sama.
My foot slipped a little...
Randy- May I come in?
*This is really hard.*
Clavis- You might fall that way.
Randy- Oh, thank you!
Randy- Um... you didn't come out to work today either
*Wow, the room is so dark.*
Clavis- Keep walking straight to the door.
You should go back quickly.
Clavis- I don't intend to speak with anyone.
The crystal ball...
Randy- Oh!! You're trying to solve the mystery using the crystal ball!!
Clavis- ... Don't shout, it resounds in my head...
Randy- Maybe Clavis-sama hasn't slept this whole time...
Randy- Then, have you found some clue?
Randy- Maybe there's no result...?
Randy- Um... Clavis-sama.
Randy- If there's anything I can do, please tell me!!
Randy- I want to help too.
Clavis- ... Go back for today.
Randy- Right! Well then, I'll gather helpful information and come tomorrow!
Randy- *Well then,*
Randy- Oh, Clavis-sama.
Randy- Once in a while, you should open the curtain and let sunlight in.
I think it will clear your head and change your mood.
Randy- I'll see you again tomorrow!!
Even Clavis-sama who always indifferent to his surroundings is trying his best like that.
I'm sure there must be something I can do.
Julious- This wine just arrived from the Sanctuary a little while ago.
You came at a good time, Oscar.
Oscar- Come to think of it, it seems there was a pony born to Arcadia who you left in the
Julious- Yes, a beautiful, pure white stallion.
The caretaker says even now it seems it is so high-spirited as if it would gain wings
and soar through the sky.
Julious- I want to see it with my own eyes as soon as possible, but...
What has since become of the matter of Rosalia and Felicia?
Oscar- ... About that...
Julious- Rosalia is possessed by a "Nightmare", is she not?
Julious- If you consider it that way, you can understand that way she changed.
Lumiale who is a Guardian easily fell into the demon's hands even.
Probably by means of the aurora stone or something.
Oscar- Your insight amazes me.
Even I was careless.
I was unable to notice the wavering of Rosalia's heart.
Julious- Everyone has darkness in their hearts.
Slipping in through that opening and taking advantage is evil's trick.
Julious- We cannot leave things like this! Rosalia must be freed from the Nightmare...
The Nightmare's objective is probably to plant the seed of evil in this new cosmos.
Julious- If, this way, the Nightmare cannot be separated from Rosalia,
Julious- The Nightmare together with Rosalia must be sealed.
Oscar- To hear that you think that...
Julious- For the future of Her Majesty and the cosmos, we cannot invite disaster into
the new cosmos.
Julious- At that time, with this hand I will apply the seal.
Taking all the responsibility...
How much contemplation led to that conclusion...?
Oscar- I'll keep you from doing such a thing.
Oscar- Please leave it to me.
By this sword, I will rescue Rosalia.
Olivie- Hi, Angelique, good morning!
Olivie- Oh? You seem kind of depressed.
Olivie- The dress designs I made for you and Rosalia flashed across my mind.
I wanted to show you right away so I brought them.
Is Rosalia here too?
Ange- Rosalia... went out, it seems...
Olivie- ... Which could mean she's on a date with Oscar.
Olivie- Hmm, as expected, he's quick to act.
That fool seriously intends to do it.
Olivie- Though he won't make the same mistake as Lumiale...
Ange- What are you... talking about?
Olivie- Huh? Oh, it's nothing.
Ange- ... Something's strange.
Olivie- Huh? What's the matter? Ange-chan?
Ange- Luva-sama and everyone are hiding something.
... And about the pendants...
Ange- Recently, even I've noticed that something is strange.
But no one will tell me the truth.
Ange- Please tell me, Olivie-sama.
Ange- Now, is something happening in the Flying City?
Ange- That I should only cultivate without knowing anything...
I won't do it.
Ange- I want to help everyone even a little...
Is that presumptuous?
I'm sorry... that you've thought that.
Olivie- ... Certainly, now, a troublesome incident has arisen, and...
There's a bit of a dangerous atmosphere.
So, all that you can do is to please stay in a safe place...
Olivie- Everyone is concerned about you.
Please, don't think that way.
Olivie- ... Maybe you won't accept that...
Olivie- Alright! Come on!!
But, I never move arbitrarily.
Olivie- Your reply?
Ange- Y, yes!
Olivie- Uh-huh, I'll protect you.
Ange- Uh... um...
Where are we going?
Olivie- To comb the spots Oscar uses for dates.
*Don't underestimate my information network.*
Olivie- In short, voyeurs.
Nightmare- YOU FAILED WITH THE GUARDIAN OF GREEN...
Rosa- ... I didn't think that there was such strong power concealed in that boy.
Nightmare- THAT IS PROBABLY THE EMBODIMENT OF UNAWAKENED SACREA OF GREEN.
AFTER ALL, THE GUARDIANS' POWER IS TRICKY.
Rosa- Be quiet!
Rosa- Next time, I'll succeed.
The Guardian of Fire is a frivolous person where women are concerned.
Rosa- There will be plenty of opportunities.
Oscar- I've caught you, missy.
Oscar- You're really full of chances.
If you're not careful,
a gentle wolf like me will target you......
Rosa- L... let go!
Rosa- When did you...
Oscar- That's cruel, missy.
Aren't I right on time?
Oscar- But I feel like being alone with you missy.
Rosa- Don't come any closer!
Oscar- ... Those are cold words.
Oscar- That such words fly from those lovely lips. It's a shock.
Rosa- I'm sorry.
I was startled.
Oscar- I want to warm those lips with my fire.
Oscar- And your frozen heart with my chest.
Rosa- ... It's strange.
Rosa- That your cold ice-blue eyes feel so warm...
Oscar- It's the same as you. Contrary to your lips that spin such cold words,
Oscar- You desire warm love.
do you love me?
Oscar- From my heart...
I'm proud to be the lover of the women of the entire cosmos.
Rosa- ... I am only one.
Would you become mine alone?
What I want are the words of an "oath".
Oscar- If you want words, I'll offer as many as you like.
But if you want to hear my truth,
you show me your true form too.
Rosa- ... Yes.
I understand... all of it.
Rosa- You want Rosalia back?
Oscar- How about it? Won't you free Rosalia in exchange for me?
Rosa- ... Heh, she's an important Queen Candidate.
Rosa- Then please give me an "oath".
DON'T GAZE AT ME WITH SUCH EYES.
I WON'T BE TRICKED.
Rosa- Make a vow to me!
I WON'T BE TRICKED ANYMORE...
Rosa- If you do, I'll give Rosalia back.
Oscar- ... Fine.
Oscar- By my sword.
Oscar- A sword given Sacrea of Light by Julious-sama.
Oscar- Through Rosalia, your true form is reflected in the shadow, missy.
Oscar- It's a little roughly, but I'll take Rosalia back.
Rosa- IT'S HOT.
Rosa- IT... HURTS.
Olivie- Stop! Angelique.
Ange- But, Olivie-sama...
Ange- What's that?
A shadow is separating from Rosalia...
Olivie- That's the Nightmare's true form...
Oscar- I'm sorry, missy.
My vow has already been exchanged under holy wings.
Nightmare (male)- PULL AWAY YOUR SWORD!
DON'T TOUCH HER!
Oscar- ... She was with a man?
Olivie- *Even at this stage, you're!*
Nightmare (male)- INDEED, THE POWER OF THE GUARDIANS IS FORMIDABLE.
AND I THOUGHT IT WOULD GO SMOOTHLY.
Nightmare (male)- BUT ROSALIA'S HEART IS STILL WANDERING IN A DREAM.
COME FIND HER.
Nightmare (male)- TODAY THE ODDS ARE A LITTLE AGAINST ME.
Olivie- Oh no, the space is closing.
