The Chapter introduces us to an elevator going straight to Hell, Chidaruma is asking serious questions to Asu, who's chained to his chair, the Devil lord demands to know why he would hide the existence of such a powerful magic user like Nikaido, one capable to manipulate time from them, the pork face Devil adamantly replies that natural born Devils like Chidaruma would never understand, infuriated, the Devil lord break Asu's face with a single punch, making clear that indeed he doesn't know, and that's why he was asking, leaving him to bleed while the elevator reach Hell.
At the same time, in the wrecked city where they were teleported, Kaiman, anger at Asu for sent them in such a far away curses him in the middle of the city as Nikaido tries to explain he did it on purpose so nobody would see them and tell En their location, find them and make her contract regrow, making them enemies again. She finds the city's subway and to their surprise, they are in Mastema, the city destroyed by En in his showdown with The Cross-Eyes Boss, as they go inside the subway and find a whole shopping center, a young girl approach them from behind and Kaiman grabs her by the throat demanding to know ho she was, the poor girl desperately ensure them she was indeed, a friend.
She introduces herself as a Cross-Eyes like Kaiman (the lizard head and Nikaido play along with her) she explains that after the destruction of the upper part of the city, those who can't use magic uses the underground as home, and she works for a man called Maki, the Cross-Eyes in charge of the Black Powder deals in the city.
