Mikoto woke up after passing out for five hours and found Lessar staring at her and gave her food before taking her to their Nihon Daruma’s northern store. She tried explaining how their magic works but gave up after the first try and explained how Project EIC was being used to alter people's minds. Mikoto believes they are trying to make espers, while Lessar believes that they are converting people's life force into magical power like magicians, but in the end, the person responsible for the ants was killed by the ones behind Project EIC.
