In episode 2, Shin and his friends deal with their internal conflict after completing one month as the Federacy citizens. In the last few weeks, they have spent most of their time adjusting to their new home. The freedom to choose what they want to do and the equal treatment in the eyes of the law is an alien concept to them after being subjected to countless atrocities by the Alba community of the Republic of San Magnolia. While they enjoy all that their new country has to offer and also make friends there, they never truly feel at home.
Instead of adjusting to the feeling, they instead decide to be honest with themselves and inform Ernst that they will return to the battlefield where they have lost so many comrades. Although Ernst is not happy with their decision, he only requests them to join Special Officer’s Training School and become officers before they do what they have planned. Frederica finally talks openly about her royal ancestry and confesses to Shin that she is the Last Empress of Giad and her real name is Augusta Fredrica Adel-Adler.
She also reveals that she has the power to see the past and future of the people that she encounters and asks for his help to free her knight, Kiriya. In episode 3, Shin and his friend will begin their training at the Special Officer’s Training School in order to fulfill Ernst’s wish and become officers. Meanwhile, Lena will plan to do everything within her power to find more about her lost comrades.
