THE STORY

THE EX-FELDWEBEL
When Ayano Watase hands in her resignation letter to the Osthauptstadt militia, she’s not expecting to go back to normal. After all, she’d lived through hell and back as she climbed the ranks of a sweep squad commander battling the Fever with her childhood friend, Souta. Nothing could change that.
Yet what she finds at the park apartments of Torberg where her cousin-once-removed lives change everything she thought about the Fever. About the world.
THE HAUPTFELDWEBEL
Souta Nonomiya’s life seemingly continues on after Ayano resigns. But as he steadily climbs the ranks Ayano gave up on, he begins to see cracks in the Stadt he had been ignoring. As a policy change reconstructs the Stadt militia, his path once again crosses with the girl who rescued him many years ago.
