The chapter begins as the sky’s clearing up & citizens are rejoicing. Ryu says that Asta’s anti-magic cut the magic clouds, which have been constantly covering the islands outside Goshu as the influence of the sleeping 5-headed dragon. Ryu thanks Asta for enabling ppl to see the clear sky. Asta remembers Heath and says he was supposed to be dead. Ryu reminds Asta of what Lily said about Lucius’s power and remarks even though Lucius’s power is not complete yet, it’s bad news he was able to revive a magic knight of this level already. Asta asks Ryu if there really is no way for him to go back to Clover right now. Ryu says the Black Bulls are looking for a way to bring Asta back, and since there’s 3 days left, there’s nothing he can do but have faith & wait for now.
There’s a feast: the Shogun, Ryuzen 7 and Asta are celebrated (Asta “a hero from a foreign land”). There’s talk of how much the 5-headed dragon’s skin’s worth and Humito’s excited about cooking its meat. He says Lily’s fine asleep & he knew Ryu would ‘see through it’. Ichika is talking with Ryu. She’s trying to confirm with Ryu if it was her who wiped out the Yami clan, and not Yami [Sukehiro], but Ryu keeps silent & just keeps drinking. She no longer refers to Yami as “that guy”, but uses the word “brother”. Asta is drinking sake and is getting drunk. Ichika sits down to drink with him and apologizes for verbally abusing Yami. Asta’s face is so red, Ichika asks what’s up with that dumbfounded look.
Asta says he knew it must have been a misunderstanding, and it’s great of Ichika to admit to it. Ichika says he’s cheeky for someone so young, and leaves. Asta is surprised and asks if they won’t drink together now? “You wanna drink? Eat? Here comes the Ochaarmi doll!” Asta asks what this “Ochaarmi” doll is, and Komari’s like “You don’t know?” She tells Asta “Ochaarmi” is the God of food who saved the people of the Land of the Sun from being destroyed by a great famine long ago. Jozo says he’s useless & doesn’t deserve to eat. Komari laughs at him. Yosuga tells Asta that next time he’d like Asta to introduce him to some strong women of his country [Clover] and he’d like someone who uses Fire Yojutsu.
Asta thinks of Mereo… Asta gets sick from all the Sake, and Daizaemon picks him up & takes him to the hot spring, and is planning to wash each other’s backs. Asta enters the hot spring but it turns out it’s the female time slot… he sees Ichika in the hot spring, and thinks he’s dead, he immediately sobers up. But Ichika just ends up blushing and covering her chest, and Asta runs away. The next morning Ichika greets Asta with ‘Good morning’, Asta immediately apologizes but Ichika just tells him “You’ll have to take responsibility…! You idiot…!” Asta is wondering what that means… Ryuzen 7 & Asta decide to train in the remaining 3 days. This is where the chapter ends and there will be a break next week.
