Angelise's escape attempt during her first battle with the First Troop against the DRAGON's has unforeseen consequences. Although her destiny is revealed when she is assigned to pilot the Para-mail, AW-CBX007 (AG) Villkiss .
Terrified upon Coco's death, Ange remains adamant on defecting from the unit while Salia points her gun at Ange. However, the DRAGONs brigade consists of 22 schooners and a galleon type appears to which the squadron puts their Paramail into assault mode and attacks the horde. Miranda grieves the loss of Coco but the schooners manage to devour her. This makes Ange even more terrified and as Zola is about to deliver the killing blow on the galleon type DRAGON, Ange bumps her and the galleon type apparently destroys them both. Ange survives the crash but Zola is killed. At the infirmary, Zola's unit puts the blame on an injured Ange on Zola's death and Jill assigns Salia and Hilda as Captain and Lieutenant respectively. Jill also tells Ange that her request to return home is declined and her family is gone.
As a punishment, Jill tells Ange to carry the tombstones of the fallen to their cemetery. Ange becomes emotional and is willing to die. As a solution of Ange's despair and due to lack of Paramail units, Jill assigns Ange to pilot a unique Paramail which other pilots consider "ancient". The unit heads out and hunt their previous enemy but the galleon type DRAGON chases and lands attacks on Ange. As she recalls her despair and her dying mother's wish to live strong, Ange awakens Villkiss in assault mode and destroys the galleon type. Back at the Arzenal cemetery, she lets go of her loved ones and her monarchic living by cutting her hair and vowed to do whatever it takes to survive. Before the credits, she eats the pudding Coco offered her previously but it was already spoiled.

|“||Zola Axberg. Coco Reeve. Miranda Campbell. They're all nice names. Arzenal girls finally get their old names back when they die. Their real names, given to them by their parents.||”|
|“|| Ange: What's going to happen now? What am I supposed to do?
Jill: Fight and kill DRAGONs. That's all.
Ange: What are those DRAGONs? Why do I have to fight them?
Jill: Weren't you listening in class? We Norma are allowed to live only as weapons to kill the DRAGON.
Jasmine: Isn't that what you'd want as a princess? You're fighting to protect the world.
Ange: The world?
Jasmine: It's because there are Norma here fighting the DRAGONs that the world of Mana is able to maintain peace.
Jill: While your world was drunk on peace, the Norma were dying, unknown to anyone, to protect you.
Ange: I don't know anything about that.
Jill: Now it's your turn.
Ange: I don't know. I'm not even a Norma.
Jill: This is the officer's pen. Use it.
Ange: Light of Mana. Light. Light of Mana! Why? I just...I just can't use Mana right now... Just for that, I have to get thrown into this hell? It's outrageous.
Jill: It was you people that decided that. You ended up here under the rules that you people made.
Jasmine: Of course it's outrageous. Coco had just turned twelve, dammit.
Ange: Twelve... the same age as Sylvia. No. She's not the same as Sylvia. Because-
Jill: Norma aren't human...huh. Then what are you? You're not a princess. You have no Mana. You abandoned your duty. You're deserter. You killed a little girl. Just what are you?
Ange: I am- I am-
Jill: Get up, Ange. We're moving out. Snap out of it. This world is unfair and unjust... so kill or be killed. That's all there is. Kill the DRADONs for your dead comrades. If you can't do that much, then die.
Ange: Then kill me, please. I can't take it.
Jill: No. Die in battle, just like they did. That's your duty.
|“|| Goodbye, Father, Mother, Brother, Sylvia.
There's nothing left for me. There's nothing I need. No past, no name, nothing. I won't die as easily as you did. To survive, I will claw the ground, drink muddy water, and vomit blood. I will live on. Kill, and live.
