After becoming the newest member of the adventurers guild Shooting Starlight, Shiki proposes his first adventure that will rocket him and Rebecca to the top: proving the existence of the Goddess of the Cosmos known as Mother. In need of a more space worthy ship, they decide to pay Rebecca and Happy's dear old friend Professor Weisz a visit on the Planet Norma and somehow wind up traveling 50 years back in time! Can they make it back to their own time without changing the future? Or have events already been altered beyond what they're aware of?
The Adventurer's Guild, Shooting Starlight!Edit
Shiki, Rebecca and Happy head inside the building for Shooting Starlight. Shiki wants to touch all the people there but is held back by Rebecca. At that moment, the Shooting Starlight's receptionist Clarisse Layer greets Rebecca and tells her how worried she was when Rebecca and Happy went off to Granbell. After introducing Shiki to Clarisse, Rebecca asks her if she can register Shiki as an adventurer in spite of the lack of identification papers.
Meanwhile, Shiki starts bothering this muscular guy and asking him to be friends. As Rebecca drags him away again, Shiki notices a hologram of a giant woman, which she explains is supposed to be "Mother" and is said to be bigger than any known star. Long ago, an adventurer travelled beyond the Sakura Cosmos and found Mother by chance. After that, adventurers started worshipping her as a goddess of space, with Shooting Starlight even adorning the guild with her image. Shiki then says that he thinks he has met her before, causing the guild to go silent for a moment, and then laugh at him. He ignores it and asks if they want to be friends, causing them to laugh even more.
As Rebecca watches with embarrassment, she is greeted by Labilia Christy, who calls her a second-rate B-Cuber with a trashy cat while charging eager fans for autographs. She then tells Rebecca that she just retire, and then explains to Shiki that she's a famous B-Cuber. Labilia corrects her, saying that she is a super famous B-Cuber and that there isn't anyone in the Sakura Cosmos who doesn't know her name, though Shiki says he's never heard of her. Labilia then tells Rebecca to keep posting boring videos to make her look better, causing Rebecca to tear up. Livid, Shiki uses his Ether Gear to make her float in the air as payback. As Rebecca drags Shiki off and leaves Labilia on the ground, Labilia, fascinated, declares her intentions to put Shiki in her next video.
To Find the Goddess Mother! Edit
At a nearby diner served by a staff of Nikora, Shiki says he imagined a guild to be more like a big family, while Rebecca says its more of a place for people to get work. At that moment, Shiki's online registration finishes and Rebecca hands him his new Adventure License. Since he doesn't know his last name, Rebecca had him registered as "Shiki Granbell". Once he notices the "Class E" rank on his card, Rebecca and Happy tell him that it's the lowest adventurer rank, which they are also a part of.
Just then, Labilia's newest video goes up, causing Rebecca to begrudgingly admit that her videos are good. Shiki then says he knows how they will make Rebecca's videos better than Labilia's: they'll go and meet Mother, being the first ones to do so while figuring out while she seems familiar to Shiki. The problem is since Mother lives outside of Sakura Cosmos, the Aqua Wing won't be able to make the trip; they also need to bring on more party members to help them. Rebecca and Happy decide to visit the doctor who repaired Happy and ask for his help.
Back at the guild, Elsie Crimson and her crew arrive looking for Shiki, with one guild member saying that he was headed to the Planet River. One of her crewmembers reminds her, and Elsie shows she already knows, that that star is already dead.
To the Planet Norma, Year X442?! Edit
On the Aqua Wing, Rebecca tells Shiki he can stay in the guest room, refusing to share her room with him. When Rebecca tells him that the ship is on autopilot, he asks to fly it for a while. Rebecca and Happy, thinking they could get a lot of views from him flying for the first time, agree. Later, the Aqua Wing has crashed on planet Norma, with Rebecca furious yet happy that she got footage of it. As Happy wonders about what to do with the ship, Shiki lifts it up and sets it back down, revealing he can make things lighter with his Ether Gear.
At that moment, an alarm goes off warning the three that there it is about to rain earth ether crystals, much to Shiki's shock. Happy explains that Ether is the source of all "power" present in everything in the universe; in simpler terms, it's magic. In Shiki's case, his Ether Gear can rearrange the flow of Ether in his body like that of a machine. As the Earth Ether continues coming down, the group heads below the surface, revealing a massive, underground city where Shiki is amazed at all the people and animals present.
As they arrive at Professor Weisz's house, Rebecca realizes he is nowhere to be found. Happy notices that he hasn't read his emails, either. Shiki picks up a set of goggles and starts messing with them, and discovers that they give him x-ray vision. Rebecca tells him to stop messing with the Professor's stuff, but just as she tries to take the goggles off, a man with a gun appears telling them not to move.
The man asks them why they are in someone else's house, and Rebecca and Happy nervously explain that looking for Professor Weisz Steiner, the man who fixed up happy. The man says that he is Weisz Steiner before asking them who they are, much to everyone's shock.
20,000 years into the future, a pair of explorers finds two human corpses, one male, the other female. They then pick a B-Cube necklace, and find the word's "Eden's Zero" written on the back.
