How many times... How many times must we make the same mistake...
Ranta has now become a member of Forgan. And with the complete withdrawal from both sides, every single one of them is forced to scatter once again in all directions. Without knowing the safety of everyone in their party, each member must re-assess just what kind of existence the group is to them. And knowing too well what it's like to lose, is Haruhiro's group truly broken apart, or is it――?
Now intermingling with the enemy known as 'isolation' in the misty Thousand Valley, born from within the ashes, the adventure now begins to spin a new act.
