“After the Orpheus Order battle and Jin losing his memory, Kaito moves on to becoming a sophomore and heads off to England. Upon visiting a church from his childhood, Jin and Kaito bump into Reisheru – a girl whom he recognizes only by name. But their first encounter lands them immediately into a Puzzle Battle.
Meanwhile at school, the mysterious wave of influence from Gammon and Enigma starts involving Kaito and every one of his friends, but somehow ends up circling back to Raetsel. What's her involvement in this? Will the mystery of Phi-Brain be fully revealed? Will the answers lie inside Jin's head? Find out on the thrilling conclusion of PHI-BRAIN!”
