In a mythical world where humans and gods coexist, a ceremony marking the new governing princess is about to occur for the first time in 60 years.

While Hinohara visits the Hime clan, he is declared the second coming of a past king and the true ruler of Arata’s world! Despite the many obstacles that fate puts before him, Hinohara forges ahead. But then, he encounters his strongest foe yet—the Shinsho Yataka!
