“The Rumored Accepted Student”
“Uwasa no Hennyūsei” (噂の編入生)
Since returning to the Academy, Saito and Louise have spent less quality time together, since Saito has been busy with the Knights of Ordine. Tiffania shows up as a transfer student, who attracts attention from the boys, and who rouses jealousy not only from Louise but also from a noble student named Beatrice, who later bullies Tiffania until Saito and Guiche intervene. The next day, Tiffania reveals her elven heritage in front of a class, and Beatrice uses her religious authority to put Tiffania through an interrogation where she must get into a pot of boiling water. Saito tries to intervene, but after Guiche warns him that his actions would put his beloved in danger, Saito begs Beatrice for mercy. When she refuses, Saito draws his sword; he and the Ordine knights fight Beatrice’s knights until Louise, who was having a pleasant dream about Saito, ends the conflict with a giant explosion. She then clarifies that Beatrice has no authority to conduct the trial, Beatrice gives up but Tiffania forgives her. In the infirmary, Tiffania asks Saito to check her breasts to see if they are real or fake, but Louise and Siesta show up in time to witness this.
