Yuka revealed herself and called out to Mikan just as they were vanishing... Mikan realizes she must've heard the whole thing about her refusing the idea of being taken by her mother..
Noda goes back a bit too far, to where Yuka was just enrolled at the academy at age 5, 24 years ago... at first she only had the teleportation alice. It was later on that she learned she also had the stealing alice. There's a really emotional scene where Yuka was abandoned by her parents... Then Noda takes them 5 years further into the future, where Yuka is 10 and she meets the 22 year old Yukihara-sensei, teacher of the special ability class, and Mikan's father... He discovered his nullification alice just a few years before this, when his brother (the high school principal) tried using his alice on him.
Yukihara reminds me a lot of Mikan.. he's a very cheerful person, and the principal thought that he'd be able to help change this academy. Noda says that when he first saw Mikan, she reminded him of a younger Yuka with Yukihara's energy. Noda then showed when Yuka first met Yukihara.. Yukihara was just starting out as a teacher then. he wanted to teach high school girls but ended up with kids.. he called Yuka "Chibi-chan" and yelled at her a lot for trying to skip class and cause trouble... later, Yuka was electrified by the border fence, trying to escape because she was worried about the fact that she hadn't recieved any letters from her parents... Yukihara agreed to help her.. Up until now, Yuka has been unable to open up to adults, because of the trauma of being abandoned by her parents.
another jump, 2 years ahead.. Yukihara and Yuka are now friends, and Yukihara is a very popular teacher, recieving valentine's gifts from the girls in elementary and middle school.. Koizumi Luna transfers into Yukihara's class... nobody wants to be her friend because she has the dangerous soul-sucking alice. they think that anyone who allows Luna to get close to them will have their soul sucked out... The elementary principal tells Yukihara he wants him to use his nullification alice as a way of disciplining the students... Jinno is also a new teacher, and he agrees with using force/violence to discipline, but Yukihara doesn't agree with that...
Luna manages to talk to Yuka and make friends with her... Yuka feels sorry for her because she has the same sort of abandonment issues as her. The elementary principal is the only person who has ever told Luna that she should be proud of her dangerous abilities...
I'm starting to see now why Luna has such devotion to that principal and hates Yuka/Mikan. although the part about Yuka betraying the academy and causing the elementary principal to lose his youthful look, hasn't been fully explained yet.
then it jumps ahead to when Yuka/Luna are in middle school... Yuka discovers her stealing alice when she gets into a fight with Luna and steals her alice away in front of everyone... Luna never forgave Yuka for that, and she started using her alice on the other students to make Yuka feel just as outcasted as she used to be... Yuka then gets forced by the elementary school principal to do some dirty work using her stealing alice, taking alice stones from people who are about to die.. Yuka is ashamed of doing this, and thinks of herself as a "god of death"... when Yukihara sneaks into the middle school to find Yuka, Yuka doesn't want him to have anything to do with her... she doesn't want her tainted hands to ruin the radiance of Yukihara's light.. but Yukihara ignores that and takes Yuka away from the principal, saying that he has jurisdiction over her as the special ability division teacher.
Yukihara tried to reason with Luna, saying that Yuka and her were always best friends and she should forgive Yuka... and now he's telling Yuka that she shouldn't blame herself for what she did to Luna... she was trying to prevent Luna from falling into darkness... This is the scene where Yuka falls completely in love with Yukihara...
