No longer the Pretear, Himeno Awayuki is powerless to stop Takako, the Princess of Disaster, from nearly killing the knight Sasame. Distraught, Himeno finds comfort with her stepsister Mawata and solace in the arms of the knight Hayate. But when Takako threatens to kill all the Leafe Knights, Himeno rediscovers the will and the way to be Pretear!
Takako then sends demons to terrorize the Awayuki home. Both Himeno's family and the Leafe Knights try to exterminate these pests. But the search parties only get confused and lost. The search does turn up a secret, one that will cause Sasame to declare himself Takako's servant!
But Takako rejects Sasame. The only person she wants is the future Puppet of Darkness-Mawata! Himeno and the Knights retreat to Leafenia, which they think is safe. Then Sasame and Takako invade the realm. Takako will take Sasame as a servant, provided he prove his love-by killing Hayate!
