Meanwhile, winter comes to Elm Village and Tsukasa works on a plan out of concern for their safety. Thanks to the actions of Sarutobi Shinobu, a descendant of ninja and the world’s top journalist, they develop a vague understanding of the forces in this new world, such as Frejyagard Empire, the large nation controlling much of this world.
