Ryuki finally begins acting like a respectable ruler, but for Shurei this heralds the end of her time as a consort. However, she has little time to be sad about this when she becomes the victim of a kidnapping and a poisoning plot!
After much contemplation, Ryuki decides to carry out his wish to make the National Exam open to women, which causes a great uproar in the Imperial Court. Meanwhile, Shurei, who has left the Royal Harem, is once again called upon by Koyu to aid the Department of Finance. But to do so she must pretend to be a boy?!
