INDUCTIVE REASONING

“Steel Lady Nanase”—the urban legend of a faceless, bloodthirsty phantom who had once been a voluptuous idol— as gone from myth to terrifying reality thanks to Rikka’s powers. In order to defeat this fictitious monster, Kotoko continues to present her “four solutions” to create a new “truth,” as Kurô uses his abilities to defeat the spectre once and for all. With two solutions rejected and only two remaining, canKotoko’s invented inference put the myth of the Steel Lady to rest once and for all, or is the fate of her and Kurô’s futures completely out of her hands?

TRUTH TO POWER

With the violence and the urban legend of Steel Lady Nanase only continuing to grow in power, it’s up to Kotoko to put a stop to her once and for all—and quickly! Her mission is complicated by the likelihood that Kurô’s sickly cousin, Rikka, is the mastermind behind it all. Kotoko gathers “four solutions” to destroy the truth that Rikka has brought to life, but can a lie destroy a fictional monster and create a new truth? Armed only with these imaginative solutions, Kotoko, Kurô, and Saki kick off the decisive battle with Steel Lady Nanase.

Whether or not the spectre of a dead idol is real, the urban legend of “Steel Lady Nanase” feeds people’s imaginations and results in a murder that hits close to home for Saki. This brutal death causes the legend to further balloon out of control, and Kotoko and Kurô must devise a lie that can counteract the belief that such a dangerous ghost even exists. But matters become complicated when the group discovers that the person behind the myth may be someone Kurô has known all along…What powers can bring a ghost to life, and what motivated this trickery?

Now, Kotoko and Kurô must figure out how to defeat a figment of the imagination!
