One year later, Fujiwara hasn't been seen or heard from since that day. Fuyumi went looking for him, but never came back. Kuro and Eli walk through The Realm of Death.
"Why are we here?" Kuro asks, looking around.
"I want you to meet some people, people very important to you."
"People important to me?"
"This were we all go when we die. It doesn't matter what you did in life, if you're a human, god, or Shinigami. We are all equal in death."
Eli looks up.
"There they are."
Kuro looks up and sees a man, and two women, one of which looking around his age. They at look at him, and are shocked. he is struggling to make words come out and then finally says,
"I didn't expect you to remember, you were just an infant, Ryuzaki."
"Yes that is what we named you."
Kuro can't believe what he is hearing. He looks over to where Eli was, but he was gone. Kuro starts to cry. He hugs his father and the two women join in. Elsewhere, Eli walks up to Shiina.
"You sent your spirit again."
She smiles and kisses him.
"I have to know," Eli starts,
"Why did Koto kill you?"
"I stole something, something very powerful."
"A staff, with the power to destroy worlds. I hid it away before he killed me."
"Yet staring across this barren wasted land, I feel new life will be born beneath the blood-stained sand."
Eli starts smiling.
"You can never just say stuff bluntly, can you?"
"You know me too well, El."
Eli turns around and walks away. He goes back over to Kuro.
"You ready to leave?"
Eli opens a portal and goes through. Eli and Kuro enter The Realm of The Gods.
"Why are we here Eli?"
"There is...something I need to...take care of."
Kuro sighs and leaves through a portal. Eli sprouts his wings and flies toward the tower. He crashes through the wall and attacks Koto, who is sitting in his throne. Koto appears behind him.
"You wish to have revenge."
"You killed Shiina over a fucking staff."
Eli says while attacking. Koto kicks him, it looked like one but felt like a thousand. Koto forms a sword with a pure white blade. He goes a slash but Fujiwara intercepts the attack. Eli looks up, surprised. Fuyumi attacks Koto from behind but he dodges.
"Fujiwara, coming to Eli's aid. How...unexpected from you."
