The Episode starts with the Wizard King introducing two new Magic Knight Captains Mereoleona Vermillion and Kaiser Granvorka along with the rest of the Captains. Though unfortunately Yami and Charlotte couldn’t make it there.
The Wizard King then announced the rankings of the Magic Knight Squads starting from the first rank.
As expected The Golden Dawn ranked 1st with the most number of stars.
But to everyone’s surprise, Black Bulls came in second place with 101 stars.
Before Asta joined Black Bulls, they had -31 stars and now they earned 101 stars making it a total of 132 stars which clearly surpasses the 125 stars of The Golden Dawn. So in a way, Black Bulls ranked 1st.
The complete ranking is like this.

|5||Crimson Lion Kings||76|
|6||Green Praying Mantises||69|
Soon after the King of Clover Kingdom, Augustus Kira Clover XIII makes an appearance. He spouts some nonsense at first but then makes an announcement of the formation of the new Royal Knights. The new Royal Knights will be the best Magic Knights handpicked after a tournament. Their purpose is to defeat the ‘Eye of the Midnight Sun’!!
At the end of the episode, Asta and Yuno stumbles upon the new Captain of the Crimson Lion Kings, Mereoleona Vermillion. She is the elder sister of Fuegoleon and Leopold and she is stronger than Fugeoleon.
Fun fact: She is the second strongest in Clover Kingdom after the Wizard King.
