Amidst overwhelming odds, Kamijou Touma's counterattack begins!
As the heatwave disperses, Academy City enters a recovery stage. The communications infrastructure in the city is still down from the chaos, causing the city to fall into lawlessness as Anti-Skill, among other groups, lose their grip on the situation. Thus, the girls who still believe that Kamisato Kakeru can come back, the Kamisato Faction, laid waste to the city as they pleased!
The pursuit expert, the "Tracer" Ellen, the shape-shifting pirate girl who specializes in close-quarters combat, Luca, and the ghost girl who freely uses the Internet to manipulate the public, Maya. As Kihara Yuiitsu uses her "right hand" as a shield, the girls are ordered to eliminate Kamijou Touma, but at their core they are unchanged. They will bring back the one in their thoughts. And therefore, with that belief, they push on.

Under this situation of mathematical odds, it is the time for Kamijou Touma to show his true essence.
Now go, save Kamisato Kakeru.
