Kor’s grandfather is impressed by his growing skill, and bequeaths to him a special type of weapon known as Soma. Soma users most possess exceptionally strong Spiria, the source of all life from which the human mind and will are derived.
Armed with his new weapon, Kor soon meets a young woman named Kohaku Hearts who has been placed under a spell by a mysterious witch.
