Story

"Several years after the end of the Second War, multiple branches of the Librarium, reputed to command a force as powerful as an entire nation's army, were suddenly and utterly destroyed.

His name was “Ragna the Bloodedge.”

He appeared to have achieved his goal upon the destruction of the NOL cauldron located in the deepest reaches of the 13th Hierarchical City of Kagutsuchi. Unfortunately, his ultimate aim has yet to be fulfilled. Ragna has sensed the resurrection of one of the Six Heroes, a man by the name of Terumi, and quietly waits for the return of his true enemy…"[9]
