In the unending quest to get hold of the precious Teardrops of the moon, Mahiru moves in with the lunar Race. While plans for stealing the nest Drop begin to emerge, Mahiru's conscience gives her reservations about joining the bandits, leading to the death of a comrade...and the appearance of a mysterious vortex that takes no prisoners!
The battle between the humans and the Lunar Race escaltes! Mahiru supports the Lunar Race, while her psychic classmate Keiko backs Dawn's Venus - a group of humans whose goal is to annihilate the lunar race.
"When Keiko learns of a possible connection between Mahiru and the Moonlight Bandits, she confronts Mahiru, going as far as branding her as an enemy and traitor. However, the ever-gregarious Mahiru extends a friendly invitation to Keiko in order to calm an increasingly tense situation. Will she take hold of the olive branch? Or will the alliance snap like a twig?"--Cover, P. .
