Inside the Labyrinth Library

Crastinus Dies Nunquam Sciat, also known as Song of the Unseen Tomorrow, is an anime-only Phantom Book used by Hugh to defeat the zombies created by the Professor, user of the Book of Atonement. The girl in white used to read the book inside the Labyrinth Library. In her hands, the book was titled Nahratius Puellas Kigeha Vestimenta. The Phantom Book is present in the Song of the Unseen Tomorrow story.

It’s a thick book with a sophisticated dark violet cover with light details. At the center of the cover there’s a chained heart with a crown at the top. This symbol is also repeated in the spine, where Nahratius Puellas Kigeha Vestimenta is written in gold.

When Hugh grabs the Phantom Book, the cover becomes pink, with details in black, red, green and gold. The heart becomes golden and unchained, with a red rose at the center. The spine has golden hearts and the title Crastinus Dies Nunquam Sciat in golden letters.[1]

Powers[]

When Hugh got lost inside the Labyrinth Library, Dalian and the girl in white gave the Phantom Book to him so he could find his way out. On that occasion, the Nahratius Puellas Kigeha Vestimenta became the Crastinus Dies Nunquam Sciat, reflecting Hugh truly accepting himself as the Black Biblioprincess’ key-keeper. The dark-colored book gained bright colors. It gave off a bright golden light, guiding Hugh out of the Labyrinth Library. He was surrounded by a golden glow.

The Phantom Book shines brightly once again when Hugh reads it. A burst of energy is released, easily destroying the zombies created by the Book of Atonement. The Phantom Book releases a column of light which illuminates the surroundings for a moment.[1]

Reading

Hugh reading the Crastinus Dies Nunquam Sciat.

"The moon whispers silently
With a voice unheard by anyone.
The tides wax and wane.
The scenes disappearing from my memories
are quietly recorded by the stars
with a language that cannot be deciphered.

Countless words form a spiral,
creating milliards of tomes.
The sky is too open for the likes of me,
the passing of time is too fast for me.
Knowing nothing, without purpose,
even the words I have collected
are doomed to wither away in the earth.

Even so, I scream.
Without understanding, I raised my voice.
At least let the echo reach the skies,
and the sun will eventually rise.
The menial darkness answered
That no one has seen the future.
I stretch out my hands towards the sky,
catching the cold wind.

Blow away all despair!
Take everything into the past, be it dreams or frustrations.
Within the twilight dozing on the Earth, I will keep on going forward
Towards the unknown tomorrow!"
