Maya is talking to Hayama about the upcoming challenge. They discuss what tactics Tatsuya is going to use as well as why he is bringing Miyuki. Maya asks what Hayama thinks of this situation as a member of The Senate. The Senate is an informal secret organization that sponsors the Yotsuba Family, and in exchange they dispose of magicians that commit violent crimes or magicians that plan to do anything similar. The Yotsuba Family does not care for the 10MCs, Magic Association, or the Japanese Government. They only care about The Senate. Hayama is an agent of The Senate, and only the head of the Yotsuba Family will be privy to this information. After spending so many years with Maya, he places more importance on his position as Maya’s butler than as his position in The Senate. They plan to send the Tsukuba Family to encircle the area that Tatsuya will be fighting Minoru as a backup plan but they will not disrupt his fight.

Chapter 8

Spoiler
August 25th. The area that Minoru called Tatsuya to was the area normally used for Monolith Code’s grassland stage. Tatsuya and company were easily able to enter the area which surprised them. They suspect that Minoru used wide area mental interference magic to manipulate all the guards. They meet up with Minoru and Raymond. They get right to the conversation of trying to get Minoru to get rid of the parasite in Minami. Minoru talks about his sad lonely past. They discuss their options but can’t come to an agreement so they start to fight.

Quick play by play of the fight:

-Minoru uses Spark.

-Tatsuya uses Gram Demo and then envelops his body in a contact type Gram Demo armor.

(Tatsuya came up with this after his fight with Yakumo, realizing he needs better magic defense.)

-Minoru uses Human Ignition

-Tatsuya charges.

-Minoru retreats while casting magic.

-Tatsuya doesn’t use magic and just chases Minoru.

-Minoru uses Parade and Ghost Walker.

(Tatsuya’s aim to destroy Minoru’s heart but he has to directly touch him.)

-Minoru uses an event interference magic to distract Tatsuya, while taking out a card that contains a chemical beast that Zhou often used.

-Minoru uses a thunderbolt based attack, possibly using the same principal as the chemical beast, and it knocks Tatsuya back.

-After analyzing this attack Tatsuya is able to dodge similar attacks aimed at him.

-Another attempt at attacking Tatsuya ends with the magic being destroyed.

-Minoru uses Parade and begins to shift his position around as he moves behind Tatsuya to attack again.

-Tatsuya uses Flash Cast to speed towards Minoru.

-Tatsuya reaches out and touches Minoru’s chest and he feels his heart stop.

-Minoru collapses and Tatsuya stands over him while staring at Minoru’s heart.

-Tatsuya stabs into Minoru’s chest using decomp.

-After destroying Minoru’s heart, Tatsuya used Regrowth to bring it back.

-Tatsuya starts to analyze the parasite leaving Minoru’s body to use Astral Dispersion.

-The parasite gets sucked back into Minoru’s body.

Minoru analyzed the attack Tatsuya just used and figures that Tatsuya wanted to force the parasite to leave his body and then destroy it, effectively turning him back to human. He also figures that this power is the reason why Tatsuya can recover so fast.

Minoru states that he can’t go back to being human because this is the only way to treat Minami. He needs to stay as a parasite or else the parasite in Minami can’t leave. He says that he is the reason that Minami’s condition worsened because she had to save him back in the USNA.

As Tatsuya is aiming to kill Minoru, Minami stops Tatsuya. She doesn’t want him to die for her. Minami finally makes a decision to become a parasite.

Minoru and Minami decide to go into a permanent sleep. Parasites can lock themselves in the same dream until they die. They request that Tatsuya watch over them so that this can be done peacefully and Miyuki also requests it. Tatsuya decides to put them into a dungeon prison that was meant for criminal magicians.

Tatsuya asks Raymond what he wants to do and he’s surprised that he has a choice. Tatsuya gives him two choices, to be destroyed or to be handed over to the USNA. Raymond decides to go to the USNA.

Chapter 9

Spoiler
Minoru and Tatsuya work to make Minami a parasite that still contains their own ego. After confirming that they have fallen into a sleep, Tatsuya leaves.

Chapter 2

Spoiler

There are 170 graduates, which means that 30 students have left since the entrance exam, with 128 graduates going to Magic University. Tatsuya is one of the last students called up and is personally thanked by the principal for his contributions.

◇ ◇ ◇

After the ceremony, numerous parties are held by the “weeds” and “blooms”. Tatsuya and his friends are heading to a party as well. Some of his friends are curious about how Tatsuya was able to graduate without attending classes and the examination since he didn’t participate in Dione. They comment that the school must have been worked diligently in order to let him pass. Izumi walks up with Masaki, which surprises Miyuki. She introduces Lina to him, and he questions her relationship to the Kudou. He wonders why she is staying with Yotsuba instead of her distant family. Miyuki explains that it is just her and Tatsuya were asked to take care of Lina not the Yotsuba Family.

Masaki is feeling a sense of defeat due to Tatsuya’s accomplishments, such as his engineering work and because he provided Masaki with his strategic class magic. He asks to speak with Tatsuya privately.

◇ ◇ ◇

Tatsuya asks what Masaki wants and he starts to question how his current relationship is with Miyuki. He says he likes Miyuki and Tatsuya says that he knows. Masaki then asks how Tatsuya feels about Miyuki, and he replies that since it’s her, he is bound to like her. Tatsuya says that he loves her, and Masaki begins to question every single meaning to each word Tatsuya says……………

Tatsuya says that Masaki only likes Miyuki for her looks, and he replies that he will come to love her in every way in the future. Tatsuya says that won’t happen because he is Miyuki’s fiancée and Masaki says that it was only due to Tatsuya’s luck that he has known Miyuki longer and that he doesn’t accept those determining factors. Masaki starts to raise his voice and say that he’s more suited for Miyuki. He then punches Tatsuya. They start punching each other with no magic involved while arguing over Miyuki.

Tatsuya says they he will never give Miyuki to anyone, and applause is heard all around them. Before they knew it they were surrounded by classmates and his friends.

Epilogue

Spoiler
Tatsuya and Miyuki move on to University not as brother and sister but as fiancées. Tatsuya isn’t attending classes all the time due to having to work on Miyaki Island. Miyuki is dissatisfied with this current situation because she pictured her and Tatsuya going to University together all the time. Lina is always with Miyuki and they are secretly labeled as the dual “Lily’s’” of the University. Honoka and Shizuku attend university as well, and Shizuku sometimes attends meeting about the Stellar Furnace Reactor due to her family’s investment in the project. Erika travels around Japan on long vacations to expand her martial arts. Leo becomes estranged from his friends which Erika is not happy with.

The relationship between Mizuki and Mikihiko has progressed the most. Their families are close and they visit each other very often. After being defeated by Tatsuya, Masaki is treated by the First High school doctor. When he entered University, he continues to approach Miyuki but is usually chased away by Lina. Masaki is constantly approached by beautiful girls in University, his sister and Liu are among the most frequent to come visit him. Liu now lives with the Ichijou family after defecting to Japan from the GAU.

The Defense Forces are hoping for her to get closer to Masaki so that they can incorporate her into their military forces. The Strategic Class Magician Management plan set forth by Saeki was abandoned. Germany, France and the GAU have moved forward using this plan as a base, but the USNA, NSU and UK failed to reach an agreement on it. Saeki’s influence in the Defense Forces has disappeared. The IMEB has expanded under the control of Kazama. Sanada, Yanagi and Yamanaka have remained with him but Fujibayashi has retired. She continues to work for the Yotsuba Family.

◇ ◇ ◇

Two years later, year 2100. Miyuki and Lina come to visit Tatsuya on Miyaki Island. Tatsuya usually shuts himself in here after passing his exams. He proved a theory involving pushions waves and event interference, which made the university overlook his lack of participation.

They go visit Minami and Minoru. Tatsuya wakes them up and tells them that he plans to launch them into space using the NSU submarine that Tatsuya sank during the previous attack two years ago. This is a measure taken to insure that parasites can’t cause havoc on the world again. The USNA has taken this approach with Raymond, so Tatsuya has decided to follow suit. This space ship will be powered by a stellar furnace reactor and will be able to last for hundreds of years. There will also be a procedure to help them procure supplies when needed. Minoru and Minami agree to go into space. After success of the launch is confirmed Tatsuya and Miyuki sit down together on the sofa. A new age for magicians has begun, which will spread across the world and the universe.
