Leone and Tatsumi storm the illustrious Red Light District to assassinate a gang of drug smugglers. Infiltrating a temple where the targets reside, they find a large room full of women being held captive by the gang, who incapacitates them with their drug. Enraged at this, they assassinate the gang and their clients. Meanwhile, after assassinating their own target, Sheele and Mine are ambushed by Seryu, who had been seeking out the former. During the battle, the two seem to overwhelm Seryu and Coro, forcing Seryu to use Coro's special attack, its Berserker form. Coro transforms and attempts to crush Mine, but Sheele intervenes and rescues her. However, when she is distracted by Mine, she is shot by Seryu, then bitten in half by Coro as Mine watches in horror. When additional Imperial Guards arrive, Sheele manages to activate her Imperial Arm's special attack and orders Mine to escape. She is then devoured by Coro as she reminisces of her experiences with Night Raid and expresses her happiness in finally being useful. After informing the others of Sheele's fate, Mine swears to avenge her friend with her own hands, while Esdeath, a general for the Empire, returns to the Capital by the prime minister's request.
