Following her victory over the snake, the protagonist eats it entirely but discovers that she still isn’t full. She continues to hunt and eat. She later realizes that she now can access two new abilities: thread control and detection. When she activates the latter, it causes a massive headache, forcing her to switch it off. She gets over-confident about her abilities, but after a confrontation with a group of men, she learns that she is not that powerful. Chased by both men and reptilian monsters, she falls to the lower levels of the dungeon.

The protagonist isn’t the only one who has reincarnated into this new world.

While Shun and other students of the academy train with wands, a colossal earth dragon attacks them. Although Shun and his friends prove themselves to be quite skillful, they are no match for the dragon. Fei steps in and bites into the dragon’s skin, killing it. It is later revealed that Fei now bears the tag “Kin Eater,” indicating that the dead dragon is one of Fei’s parents. In episode 4, the protagonist might encounter the Earth Dragon Araba.
