Plot[edit | edit source]
The Group of Ten had put Hoshimiya Eiji through a trial to evaluate his strength. Having been impressed by his capability, they disclose to Eiji that they, the Order Leaders, have a purpose to accomplish, which is to create a "New World".
They plan to establish Kyushu as an independent country, separate from Japan, and decide to institute a "declaration of war", pronouncing Eiji as Kyushu's ruler. Furthermore, they plan to invade Tokyo and conquer Yamaguchi.
In the Dazaifu Central Bureau, the Group of Ten holds their Yamaguchi invasion battle plan meeting. Kunou Mari, the war strategist, goes over their goal: to conquer the world and establish a new world that is beneficial to Order Users. Their priority at the moment is to invade Yamaguchi, but the problem is the "Mineralization" Order User, nicknamed Heavy Rock Star, who currently occupies that region. She decides that Eiji will lead the invasion, but refuses to tell him about the details until they are at the field.
Later, the Group of Ten and Eiji has a meeting with the Japanese prime minister through telecommunication where Mari asserts to him that they are all under Eiji's control. As a result, the prime minister reveals that he has held the relatives of the Group of Ten in Tokyo as hostages and initiates an execution of them, one by one. The Group of Ten are appalled that even though they had sent word to their relatives to hide, they are found so quickly.
They and Eiji officially declare war.
