Episode guide
The Lazy Man's Choice


The scene opens with a storm by the sea as a large shadowed creature is talking to a girl. The creature speaks of the Taboo Emperor Arthur Gaz and that his daughter is his successor to his empire and at the same time is someone who will decide fate. The girl questions what it meant by "fate". The creature states that Chaika's existence is only the beginning and a fate surpassing the imagination of man lies ahead. He tells the girl that she is a mere tool whose sole purpose is to set that fate in motion.

The camera moves over to a forest where a young man is foraging with a machete. He depressingly wonders if he could find money lying around somewhere. He then hears rustling in a nearby bush. He readies himself, wondering if it was a rabbit, if it was then he would make it into stew. To his surprise it was a girl carrying a coffin. He calls out to her and asked her why she is in the mountains. The girl ducked into the bush and tried to run away from him but got turned around and ended up back to him.

The girl then stutters saying "attacking". The young man questions what she means. She then says "bandit", accusing him being a bandit. He tells her he isn't and just currently jobless. He tells her he's there to hunt for edible plants. She questions if he was poor which he confirmed. She then restates that he is jobless and poor which pissed him off. He then asked her what she was doing here and asked if the thing on her back is a coffin. The girl answers the first question with "Mountain. No people. Great idea". The young man was taken aback from what she said. She then asked him to pretend that he did not see. He then asked her is there is someone in the coffin and asked if she is a murderer. She tells him that she wasn't a criminal but a weak traveler trying to go to Delsorant Town but its too far. The young man asked her how long had she been walking. She tells him three days. He tells her that it doesn't take that long if she traveled normally. He asked if she got lost. She was shocked at this revelation. The young man asked if she had any money. The girl quickly accused him of being a "Theft. Poor. Bandit." He corrects her that he was offering to take her to town discreetly if she buys him breakfast.

As the girl thinks it over, the young man hears some chanting and sees a unicorn. He grabs the girl and ran with her when the unicorn attacks. They jumped off a cliff and plunged into the river before climbing onto a riverbank.

The girl then noticed that the young man suffered arm injuries and tries to find medical supplies in her coffin to help him but she fails. The young man then mulls over on giving up but the girl convinces him to instead find a new purpose in life. They then agreed to fight the unicorn in order to survive. As the girl withdrew her weapon, Gundo, from the coffin and chanted her spell, the young man engaged the unicorn. The girl eventually delivered the fatal blow with her spell, "The Ripper", bifurcating the unicorn down the middle. After the fight, they introduced themselves to each other. The young man was Toru Acura while the girl was Chaika Trabant.
