“The world”, a massive multiplayer game has swept the web, boasting 6 million players on its servers, and undergoing years worth of expansions. However, “the world” is about to change, thanks to an omnipresent program created to bring birth to the designer’s dream. Programs, however, do not always run as they are scripted, and things turn for the worst.
At the center of these problems is a young wave master by the name of Tsukasa. He is a player that is no longer bound by the perimeters of the game. And with all the power he possesses, comes a curse; he is unable to log out of the game, does not seem to be in front of a terminal, and can actually feel pain inside this virtual world.
Now a band of characters have united to stand against this omnipresent force, and wish to bring peace to the game, and bring Tsukasa back to reality.
Morgana creates copies of Mimiru, Subaru, and Tsukasa in an effort to pit them against each other. However, Tsukasa sees through her efforts.
The three then proceed to find Aura, and with Tsukasa's touch, the girl is awakened. Helba has Bear, BT, Crim, and Silver Knight, go back to Net Slum. As Morgana threatens them for awakening Aura, Sora jumps in and tells them to warp to Net Slum. He announces his betrayal to Morgana.
Spoiler: Morgana uses her power to keep Sora from warping out. She then knocks the actual person playing the character of Sora, who happens to be only a teenage boy, unconscious
With Tsukasa, Mimiru, Subaru, and Aura in Net Slum, Morgana takes a monster shape and goes after them, but Helba has them abandon the server.
The person, Tsukasa, and the person of Subaru meet in the real world. The end shows the game, and Morgana saying the same words that she said to Tsukasa about them needing each other. Who is the new victim?
