As the day comes to an end, Yuuma asks Issei if he’d be able to do her a favor. He thinks that she wants to ask him for a kiss, instead, Yuuma asks him to drop dead for her.
Yuuma transforms into a “Fallen Angel” and kills Issei without second thinking. As Issei lies bleeding in the floor, Yuuma tells him that he is a a danger for them.
Just before Issei falls unconscious, he remembers seeing Rias Gremory, a gorgeous transfer student with red hair. For some reason, he wishes he could be with her. Without noticing, something happens and a red light covers everything.
Rias is in front of Issei and she tells him he has to live for her sake. The next morning everything is as usual for Issei, he thinks he has had a dream and goes to school as usual.
Issei begins to notice something is not right, he is the only one that remembers Yuuma and his body behaves different. Issei tries to remember what happened last night, but right in front of his eyes, another Fallen Angel appears and tries to take his life.
