Story ImpactEdit

  • This arc displays most female characters' (Lisha, Krulcifer, Philuffy and Celes) affections towards Lux as they make separated date with Lux within one day.
  • The fifth annual New Foundation Day would be celebrated as Atismata Kingdom's fifth year anniversary of its foundation after the downfall of Arcadia Empire.
  • Yoruka's past is revealed as her real purpose for her "contract" with Arcadia Empire was for her (deceased) younger brother's sake[Notes 1].
    • Additionally, in order to follow Lux's dream Yoruka begins her contract with Lux as his and his friend's protector.
  • Lux meets Atismata Kingdom's Great Nobles for the first time and he had to hold off the insurgent army from attacking Atismata Kingdom during the New Foundation Day. His success in foiling the Empire Recapture Plan opting the Great Nobles view him to be more than useful for the New Kingdom's purposes.
  • Hayes' Empire Recapture Plan was one of Old Empire Faction's last effort to destroy the New Kingdom, with Lagreed and Cerebus Units as her associate. Thanks to Lux and his friends however the plot is ultimately foiled and the aftermath brings several chains of events that will change Lux's and his friends' life in the Atismata Kingdom.
    • With Hayes's apparent death and the Cerebus Units' arrest, Heiberg Republic's invasion towards Atismata Kingdom had to put off for a while.
    • Airi worries over their (Arcadia Siblings) future within Atismata Kingdom would later foreshadows her brother's further roles in the later arcs.


  1. According to Yoruka's accounts, she was originally her former kingdom's aristocrat until its' destruction under Arcadia Empire's subjugation. Consequently, her brother was held hostage by Arcadia Empire's force while Yoruka herself had to serve as one of Arcadia Empire's subject, despite she latter learned her little brother's death by the traitors from her home-kingdom. Even after Lux's coup has resulted the demise of Arcadia Empire, Yoruka still caring out the former's will in "restoring" the former empire alongside with Hayes and Lagreed, though she later betrayed them by stopping the Gigas from destroying the New Kingdom after Lux successfully dissuade her from attacking New Kingdom because of his dream to build a better kingdom.
