Though he refuses to accept Crow may have spying for Busujima, Raiga agrees that finding Busujima and sealing Eyrith is essential while asking for Mayuri's freedom once it is over. At the same, sensing Eyrith entering its final Horror host, Mayuri leaves Saezima Manor to find it. Eventually, after a confrontation with his mentor, Crow finds Raiga and tells him that Busujima needs Eyrith to bring back someone from the dead. While it would be impossible, Crow remembered the first time he met Mayuri while under Busujima and that his mentor mentioned it is possible she can also seal human souls.

However, after knocking out the Ady Slate Horror Jienda, Busujima captures Mayuri and proceeds to extract Eyrith's seed from Jienda.

When they return to the mansion, they find Gonza drunk, until they are formally introduced to Shido. Shido, upon examination of Mayuri, discovers that she has consciously activated her inherent powers. After she is sent to bed, Shido tells Raiga and Crow that Mayuri is actually a human, rather than simply a tool, who possesses the powers she does now because her mother was possessed by a Horror when pregnant with her. However, as her ability to seal Horrors made her useful, Shido explains that he treated her like an object to keep her from falling victim to human emotions. Zaruba and Orva reveal that they sense the faint presence of a Horror, and Shido explains that the Horror essence within Mayuri is slowly consuming her, as she wanders around town on her own. Raiga and Crow find her, having been manipulated by Idora to fall into temptation, and she has fallen into an even deeper sleep. Shido believes that they are too late to save her, but Raiga decides to enter her subconscious to destroy Idora's presence within her mind, freeing Mayuri from the mental cage at the cost of his own lifespan.

With Mayuri unable to absorb Eyrith until the bulb is destroyed, Raiga is forced to climb to the top of the tree on foot and confronts Eyrith upon reaching the top. Though she attempts to tempt Raiga into allowing her to bloom, she ends up restraining him after playing with him and is revealed to be the cause of his parents' disappearance. She offers to return them safely if Raiga allows her to bloom, but he angrily refuses and proceeds to fight Eyrith before she once more restrains him and drains the remaining seconds of the time limit from his armor.

He uses his Lost Soul Garo form to reach Eyrith before his armor assumes Lumnious Beast form to fatally wound the Horror. He explains to Eyrith that her plan is flawed because the Horrors she have summoned have already been killed by his predecessors and other Makai Knights across time. Eyrith's body is destroyed with Mayuri reforms the Ady Slate around the Horror's surviving core. Though Zaruba mentions Eyrith may have reunited him with his parents, Raiga believes that he will find them on his own someday. A new problem soon raises from Mayuri not entering her deep sleep as Shido reveals that she will die from lingering Horror thoughts still within her mind. Though the only way to save her is to enter her mind and purge the Horror thoughts, it would only ensure that Mayuri will forget everything as she enters her rest.
