|Episode 3 1/3|
This episode starts off with some random fairies watching a scene where Zagato and Emeraude are staring at each other... These two characters have barely even done anything yet in this OVA, like they may as well not exist as with how uninvolved they are in the plot so far.
Then it cuts to Cephiro when it's on the brink of collapse... I'm not sure who's talking here.
Spirits that protect the land of Cephiro. Was it our people's sins that lead to the destruction of the land? If that is so... then I comply with the ancient covenant on behalf of the people.
You fool. Why should you make amends?! Why should you carry all the responsibility? Do you think that is the duty of a High Priest?
Lantis doesn't make it in time to stop Zagato from stabbing himself with the ceremonial sword that Eagle gives him... not sure what all this is about. I'd be even more confused if I hadn't watched the series first, because it's not even giving you the Cephiro characters' names most of the time.
The fight between Ascot and Umi/Fuu is still going on... Ascot is suddenly way more powerful now. Ferio is still alive, but no longer in his spirit beast, and is confused as to why Ascot has gotten so powerful suddenly.
Are you beginning to see things the way they really are?
Lantis! Did you come to meet your maker? You defied Princess Emeraude's wishes, you bastard!
Are you saying that this form of Ascot is the result of her wishes?
Ferio sees this dark evil energy going into Ascot, and Lantis explains that he's being manipulated by the darkness.
Suddenly, Hikaru shows up with Lexus out of nowhere, and the three magic knights combine their attacks to take down Ascot. They heard Ascot crying for help as he was being destroyed along with the dark energy, and now they're sad that they had to kill him.
Ferio tells Lantis he wants to know more about how Ascot was manipulated. I guess he's a good guy now.
Eagle learns that Ascot was defeated, and then he goes and talks to a spirit beast.
It seems as though you're the only one... whose powers can assist my sister.
The girls go to look for Clef in the building rubble. After they find him, he's surprised to hear that Lantis was helping them... Then he decides to tell them the whole story about Cephiro.
Everything was brought about by our own arrogance. Our land of Cephiro received divine protection from the spirits... and was blessed with the
richest gifts of nature. The spirits were the foundation that supported our world. They were chosen because of their magical powers... but their numbers began to fall, and the balance of nature
began to break down.
In order to avoid destruction... we turned to an ancient covenant. We took the life of the High Priest Zagato... the one who governed the people and heard the voice of God. At the ceremony... the High Priest
sacrificed his power... and made a wish that could not be fulfilled by sorcery. This wish was engraved... into the hearts of the people.
We should have never depended solely... on the divine protection of the spirits. We should have learned that lesson... and understood what we needed to do. But we made our wish to the cloud of darkness... and turned our back to our saviors.
That is why we were punished. Because love between the spirits and people was prohibited. No one suspected that Emeraude... master of the spirits, was in love with Zagato.
So the people of Cephiro died for Princess Emeraude?
The land of legends... RayEarth. Now her dream will be realized if our earth is destroyed.
Hikaru suggests going to meet Emeraude, because she can't believe that someone with such a beautiful voice could make people suffer so much... but then Eagle replies to them, talking through a bird creature, and says that's impossible.
My sister's wish will be realized. Everything will begin now.</spoiler>
This explains a lot... still have no idea what Eagle's intentions are though.
