For the Hero, whose mission is to slay the Devil King, Emilia Justina appears to have gone soft.

Meanwhile, Maou (the Devil King) is studying for his driver’s license, trying not to fret over the Hero’s disappearance. On the way to his exam, he meets a strangely familiar pair…Could they know something about Emi?!
