Night Raid plans to infiltrate the palace during Path of Peace's anniversary festival. Mine and Tatsumi are assigned as a diversion, and the two are eventually driven to the city's edge, where Seryu spots and recognizes them. She attacks the pair alongside the last member of the Four Rakshasa Demons, Suzuka. Mine manages to slice Seryu and Coro in half, but Seryu retaliates by setting off a suicide bomb implanted in her head. Exhausted, Mine struggles to escape the bomb, but is saved by Tatsumi, who had previously defeated Suzuka by crushing her with nearby ruins. Meanwhile, the rest of Night Raid storm the palace. Despite being told by Esdeath to stay put, Borick attempts to flee, but is quickly killed by Lubbock and Akame.
