Song of the Unseen Tomorrow[]

At the Disward estate, Hugh reads about a strange occurrence in the newspapers. A zombie attacked the embassy. According to Dalian, if the case is related to Phantom Books, it may be caused by the Book of Atonement. It steals the soul of the reader, turning him into a zombie. Dalian is distracted by a small advertisement in the newspaper. Accompanied by Hugh, she goes to a store to buy fried breads.

Dalian leaves the store, happily holding a bag of fried breads. Suddenly, a horde of zombies terrorize the people nearby. They hear a police whistle in the distance. Hugh and Dalian walk away to avoid more trouble. Dalian grabs a newspaper. She recognizes the transcription of the Book of Atonement in it. Hugh deduces that the responsible is experimenting with the Phantom Book. After all, only a few newspapers were modified.

Late in that day, Hugh and Dalian enter a printing shop. They see machines producing many newspapers with the Book of Atonement text. It seems like a terrorist is planning to transform the readers into zombies. The Professor shows up and introduces himself. The Professor invites the couple for some tea. Rasiel, the Crimson Biblioprincess, shows up. Rasiel and Dalian exchange offenses. The Professor reveals that he’s targeting London, where a reconstruction meeting is about to be held. He won’t allow the Allies to pressure the countries who lost the Great War. The Professor shoots Hugh with a Phantom Book in the shape of a golden pistol. Hugh collapses. The Professor is against Dalian sealing Phantom Books, preventing humanity from exploring their power. Dalian affirms that there are things in the world people shouldn’t know. The Professor is ready to shoot Dalian. However, Hugh is faster. He shoots at the Professor’s hand. Hugh grabs Dalian and jumps out of the window, into the printing shop. The zombies, under the Professor’s control, run after Hugh and Dalian.

Hugh barricades the door of a storage. Dalian wants Hugh’s wounds treated. However, before that, he wants to enter the Dantalian's Bookshelf to save the girl in white. Dalian makes Hugh promise to return. Inside the Dantalian's Bookshelf, he holds the girl in white by the hand. The Dantalian's Bookshelf shakes. In the real world, Hugh runs away from the zombies while holding Dalian’s hand. In the Dantalian's Bookshelf, he runs to free the girl in white while holding her hand. The guardian of the Dantalian's Bookshelf appears to block the exit.

The guardian uses a burst of energy to destroy the floor under Hugh and the girl in white. In the real world, Hugh collapses. Dalian tries to wake him up. Hugh gets lost inside a dark region of the Dantalian's Bookshelf. Dalian cries, worrying about Hugh never returning. She wants to continue living with him, searching for Phantom Books, drinking tea and eating fried breads. She wants to fly in a plane with him. Dalian hears the voice of her other self. Since they wish the same thing, they work together to save Hugh. Still lost inside the Dantalian's Bookshelf, Hugh finds a child version of himself. The child gives a Phantom Book to the grown-up.

In the real world, Hugh gets up. Although Dalian scolds him for being too slow to get up, she’s visibly happy and emotional. Hugh and Dalian walk to the horde of zombies. Hugh reads the Phantom Book. There are flashbacks showing Dalian’s past. There are scenes showing Dalian’s life with Wesley, Dalian at Wesley’s funeral, Dalian with Joan of Arc. The Phantom Book gives off an intense light. The zombies are destroyed. Hal and Flamberge hear Dalian’s voice calling for Hugh. Hal saves him.

Hugh wakes up in his bed. Kamilla and Armand were worried about him. Dalian enters the room. She tries to hide her happiness for seeing him awake. Hugh laughs, noticing the sugar from fried breads around her lips. She feels offended and embarrassed with his laugh. She urges him to recover faster.

After all, he wanted Hugh and Dalian's full cooperation. When the basket with the sweets cooked by Kamilla is hit, Dalian tells Hugh to open the Dantalian's Bookshelf.

Under a full moon, Hugh and Dalian meet Charlotte at the top of a tower. He’s using a Phantom Book to make him and Dalian float. Charlotte has been waiting for them. She knows about their connection with the Dantalian's Bookshelf. Charlotte shows her knowledge about the Phantom Book used by Hugh to pass by the security undetected. Hugh and Dalian land on the tower. Someone that knows about Phantom Books asked Charlotte to called them. Black feathers move in the sky, revealing a floating girl.

Rasiel lands on the tower. It’s revealed that Rasiel changed Charlotte’s life with the Book of Wisdom. Norman Harris brings armed men to surround Hugh and Dalian. Norman believes that the visitors are spies aiming for the revolutionary equipment developed by Charlotte. Although Norman wants to use the W Machine as a new weapon for England, Charlotte refuses to cooperate. One of Norman's men throws a badly wounded Eric on the floor. Norman is trying to convince Charlotte. He’s also threatening her parents. The sight of Eric’s blood makes Charlotte desperate. She screams, releasing the hidden power of the Book of Wisdom.

The latter falls on the tower. Dalian is worried, but Hugh was protected by An Immortal Wizard. Rasiel affirms that a Biblioprincess and her key-keeper should provide knowledge to those who wish it. It’s up to people to decide what to do with the knowledge from the Dantalian's Bookshelf. Eric activates the W Machine to make the falling snow extinguish the flames. The machine is not a weapon. It's an innocent equipment created by Charlotte as a way to replicate a scene from her childhood with Eric and her parents.

But he remembers about their promise years ago, when Hugh was lost inside the Dantalian's Bookshelf. Hugh tells Dalian to share her history when she's ready.

Dalian-chan's Bookshelf[]

Chapter 1[]

Hugh received an invoice of a heap of fried breads purchased by Dalian. She quickly devours the pastries. She saves the last one for later. After a few minutes, she approaches Hugh. She asks where the fried bread is. She shows her empty platter. Hugh affirms that he ate it. Dalian cries, now that her last pastry was gone.

In fact, Hugh is hiding the fried bread in his hat. He was planning to play with her, but he lost the timing. While using a wand, he takes the fried bread out of his hat. Dalian is shocked at first, believing that Hugh conjured a new fried bread. However, she notices that the fried bread has her own bite mark. She realizes that Hugh had taken her fried bread to fool her. She slaps him.

Kamilla visits them. Dalian proceeds to tell her what Hugh had done. Since the story is too long, Kamilla eats Dalian’s fried bread. The Biblioprincess shakes in sadness. In order to soothe Dalian, Kamilla decides to make a fried bread with Hugh. While they make the fried bread, Dalian decides to read. The cooking is troublesome and noisy. Dalian listens to Hugh and Kamilla and wonders if they are having fun.

Hugh seems anxious, but he serves the bread to Dalian. The bread doesn’t look appealing. Dalian blushes. She affirms that they failed to make a fried bread, but she admits that their dish is surprisingly good.[25]

Chapter 2[]

Tending the garden of the Disward estate is a great effort. Hugh asks for Dalian’s help, but next to him there’s only a doll as the Biblioprincess’ stand-in. Dalian eventually shows up. She’s not happy to see Rasiel and Flamberge. Dalian wants someone to leave. Flamberge and Rasiel stare at Hugh, as if telling him to go away. Hugh uses the opportunity to ask for the girls’ help to tend to the garden. Dalian refuses, but she quickly changes her mind when Hugh bribes her with fried breads. Flamberge also wants fried breads, but Dalian refuses to share. Dalian also won’t share with Rasiel, although the latter never asked.

Garden Dalianchan

Dalian helps with the garden.

Dalian is confident in her work. Even with her long sleeves, she manages to make a grass sculpture in the shape of a fried bread. After a while, Flamberge walks away with Hal. Hugh, Dalian and Rasiel wait for the Professor. Dalian affirms that he should return soon, but hours pass. Dalian blushes while offering a fried bread to Rasiel. After all, time goes slower while someone is bored. The Biblioprincesses seem embarrassed. Before Rasiel can answer to the offer, the Professor shows up. The couple walks away. Hugh still needs help with the garden. He tries to bribe Dalian with fried breads, but she refuses to cooperate.[26]

Chapter 3[]

Dalian wants to compete in an obstacle course. She needs to join as part of a pair, so Hugh is forced to help her. He finds odd that Dalian is interested in such a thing. She affirms that she runs once in a while. She also reveals that the prize is a year’s worth of fried breads. Hugh now understands why Dalian is so enthusiastic.

The day of the competition arrives. Dalian underestimates her opponents. She stops her trash talk when a huge, muscular man approaches. She changes into sportswear and starts to stretch. Flamberge and Hal approach Hugh and Dalian. Flamberge is confident that she will have an easy win. Her trash talk makes Dalian even more determined. The competition starts. The first part of the race is hurdling. Dalian believes that she will easily leap the barrier, but she fumbles through it. Next, they must run a tire obstacle course. While Dalian is having trouble, Hal easily overtakes her. He dashes through the course, pushing the tires away while holding Flamberge under his arm. Dalian is infuriated, but Hugh affirms that Hal is not going against the rules.

Hugh and Dalian run. Dalian is exhausted, but they are only halfway done. They see Rasiel and the Professor. The latter has a supply of energy drinks. Dalian is infuriated, but Hugh affirms that the Professor is not going against the rules. Next, Hugh and Dalian must climb a wall using a rope. Rasiel and the Professor are ahead in the race. Rasiel affirms that Dalian looks tiny from up there. In response, Dalian affirms that the pattern of Rasiel’s pants is visible. Rasiel screams in rage. Hal and Flamberge finally reach the wall. Dalian is satisfied. After all, Flamberge won’t be able to climb with her straitjacket. However, Hal simply launches Flamberge over the wall.

Hugh and Dalian reach the last part of the race. Now they must grab one of the pieces of paper on the floor and cross the finish line with the thing described on the paper. Dalian reads the paper and freezes. She's blushing. Dalian finally ignores her embarrassment and pulls Hugh by the hand. The couple wins the race. Dalian is happy. The fried bread tastes delicious after the victory. Hugh asks about the paper. Blushing, Dalian affirms that there are things in the world that he shouldn’t know. It’s revealed that the paper says “lolicon”. The next day, Dalian angrily approaches Hugh, asking about the fried breads. Hugh is shocked to learn that Dalian quickly ate one year’s worth of fried breads.[27]

Chapter 4[]

Hugh prepared the breakfast, but Dalian doesn’t want to leave the bed because she’s feeling cold. Hugh decides to leave to buy winter items. Dalian wants to go along, but Hugh affirms that he won’t buy any fried breads. Dalian puts on a large winter dress. She criticizes the passersby wearing light clothes. Dalian stares at a large teddy bear in the showcase of a shop. Hugh affirms that he won’t buy it.

Hugh and Dalian arrive at the store. The Professor welcomes them. Hugh and Dalian suspect that he’s doing something wrong. The Professor feels offended. He explains that he’s working on a part-time job. Soon after, he reveals that, in fact, he’s observing how easy people can be manipulated. Hugh and Dalian affirm that the Professor is only beautiful in the outside.

Dalian looks for something interesting. She finds a kotatsu, a heating appliance used in a certain country in the Orient. Dalian notices that Rasiel is sleeping under the kotatsu. The Professor carries Rasiel away and welcomes Hugh and Dalian to try the kotatsu. Hugh and Dalian enjoy the warmth. The Professor offers some mandarins to improve the experience. Hugh shows Dalian how to eat mandarins. She loves the fruit. However, Hugh tells her to not eat too much, otherwise her skin will turn yellow. He tells the story of a boy who ate lots of mandarins until his skin turned yellow. The boy kept eating mandarins until he turned into a banana. Hugh is surprised that the silly story he just made up scared Dalian so much.

Hugh and Dalian keep enjoying the kotatsu. They eventually leave the store with the item. Dalian stares at the large teddy bear in the showcase of a shop. Now there’s a discount for the teddy bear. Hugh decides to please Dalian. Back to the Disward estate, Hugh prepares the tea. Through the window, he sees falling snow. Hugh calls Dalian to see it, but he finds her sleeping under the kotatsu, hugging her new teddy bear.[28]

Chapter 5[]

Winter brings snow and cold. According to Hugh, it makes hard for Dalian to leave her bed. However, he’s surprised to see her awake. She seems sad. She’s being waiting for Santa Claus. He ensures Dalian that Santa will come. Hugh decides to distract Dalian. He affirms that they will have a party. Dalian becomes excited when Hugh mentions a cake. Rasiel and the Professor show up for the Christmas party.

Since Dalian and Rasiel lack skills, they are tasked to make paper rings. The Biblioprincesses criticizes each other’s work, although both did a terrible job. In order to stop the fight, Hugh tells them to decorate the tree. The girls argue once again. The tree is covered with decorations.

Flamberge and Hal arrive. Flamberge criticizes Dalian and Rasiel’s paper rings. Flamberge uses her feet to try it. She does an amazing job. The Christmas party starts. During the party, Hugh notices that Dalian is thoughtful. She’s thinking about Santa. The Professor distracts her by giving her a gift. The Professor made a mug for her. It has a teddy bear painted on it. Rasiel had chosen the decoration after seeing Dalian with a plushie. Dalian seems happy. She thanks the couple.[29]

Chapter 6[]

Hugh and Dalian return from a trip. According to Dalian, it was the last time they looked for a Phantom Book in that year. Now she wants to watch the end of the year. However, Hugh reveals that they’re already in January. They’ve received lots of New Year cards. Rasiel sent a letter, saying that she wants to meet again once Dalian is free. The Professor wrote that he wants to work with Hugh and Dalian again this year. The Professor affirms that he’s sick, so they should send gifts to his address. Hugh and Dalian don’t believe him.

Dalian is still in the spirit of New Year, so she wants to play. Hugh suggests a game of hanetsuki. Dalian immediately breaks a vase by hitting it with the shuttlecock, so they decide to play outside. They leave the Disward mansion, only to feel the intense cold. Dalian seems sleepy, but Hugh urges her not to fall asleep. They start to play hanetsuki, but Dalian can’t move, since she’s covered in snow. They try once again, but Hugh hits the shuttlecock too far. Hugh forgets the game and decides to make a snowman. Dalian also tries to shape the snow.

It's Valentine’s Day, so Dalian is excited to make chocolates for Hugh. She tells him not to look until the chocolate is finished. Since she doesn’t trust him, she tells him to wait outside. Hugh protests, saying that it’s too cold outside. However, Dalian was prepared for that. She built an igloo outside. Dalian had invited Flamberge and Rasiel to make chocolates. They arrive with the ingredients. Dalian is unhappy because Flamberge bought chocolates from a store. Flamberge affirms that those chocolates are enough to convey her feelings for Hal.

Dalian is ready to start. Rasiel is surprised to see Dalian making chocolate. Rasiel is shocked to see that Dalian uses miso as ingredient. The chocolate Dalian makes seems awful. Obviously, she doesn’t know the recipe. Rasiel wrote it down for her. Rasiel and Dalian work on the chocolates. Dalian makes strange noises while preparing hers. Dalian asks Flamberge to taste. The latter immediately collapses.

Rasiel decides to help Dalian. Rasiel bosses Dalian around. While Rasiel is looking away, Dalian changes the recipe. Minutes later, Dalian is done.

Dalian stares at him with shiny eyes. Hugh feels pressured. Hugh reflects about Dalian’s gift, but he can only think about fried breads and books. He eventually thinks about something with the help of Kamilla.

Dalian realizes that Hugh read the Memories of That Day, a Phantom Book which turns the reader into a child. She was careless for forgetting the book laying around. She tells the boy to call her Dalian. Now that Hugh is a boy, she seems older than him, so she wants respect. She feels weird when the boy calls her Miss Dalian.

Dalian notices that Hugh’s clothes are oversized, so she tells him to change. Dalian offers him some clothes that Kamilla brought to her the other day. Although he’s embarrassed, Hugh has no choice but to wear girls’ clothing. Dalian orders him to buy some fried breads. Hugh doesn’t want to leave the house dressed as a girl. He offers to cook for Dalian, but she refuses to eat eggs, the only thing he can cook.

Hugh eventually returns. He throws the fried bread on Dalian’s head. Hugh is embarrassed for leaving the Disward estate wearing girls' clothing. All the crying annoys Dalian.

Hugh enjoys the sea and the breeze, but Dalian seems uncomfortable. She’s sweating due to her heavy clothes. Hugh packed some items for Dalian. He tells her to change. Dalian is sad because he packed only one fried bread.

Dalian realizes that there’s no changing room around. Hugh covers her body with a blanket so that she can change out of sight. She feels like he’s treating her like a child, so she hits him. After a while, Dalian finally shows up in a summer dress. Now that Dalian is changed, Hugh invites her to the sea. However, Dalian refuses to enter the water.

Rasiel wants revenge, since Dalian stepped on her. Rasiel can’t think of a way to repay Dalian’s offense. Dalian suggests a game. If Rasiel wins, Dalian will kneel before her. If Dalian wins, Rasiel has to spin in place three times and say “woof”, mimicking a cute dog. Rasiel hates the idea, but she accepts the challenge. Dalian explains the rules. They see a hat in the distance. The winner will be the one who takes the hat first. They are ready to start the race. Suddenly, Rasiel mentions a fried bread in the distance. She runs ahead, exploring Dalian’s distraction. Rasiel almost touches the hat, but Hugh takes it first, mistaking it for his hat.
