Kouhei continues with his training, driven by the memory of Gramp's sacrifice. But when the masked defender of the mountain steps in with a test of his own, Kouhei's fall from grace is… well, less than graceful.
Count Kinkel may lie dead, but a beast of an entirely different breed has reared its head. Hazuki, haunted by the blood on her hands and a voice from the past, has the entire Mido household concerned by her odd behavior.
Hazuki's testing out her vampire powers, and she finds Kouhei's friend Hiromi to be easy prey… Celebration is short-lived though, as Elfriede crashes the party, quite informative this evening as she seeks some answers of her own.
Kouhei and his family welcome the young vampire and her newfound feline friend, Haiji, into the household, the only stipulation being that Hazuki must wear the neko mimi at all times… a.k.a. cute little cat ears.
