The official website has unveiled the synopsis and spoiler stills of Episode 7. When Naofumi wakes up, he finds himself in a strange prison. Everyone is now placed at level 1 while Filo’s whereabouts remain unknown.

Naofumi attempts to raise the level while figuring out a way to escape from the prison. However, the arrival of a monster before Naofumi complicates the ongoing mission.

The last episode marked the end of the Spirit Tortoise, who was defeated due to the joint efforts of the Cardinal Heroes and Ost.

Meanwhile, Kyo turned out to be one crazy villain who escaped into a portal after Spirit Tortoise’s defeat. L’Arc and his party followed Kyo into the portal. Ost was on her deathbed and Naofumi decided to follow L’Arc and the others.
