Cold openEdit

Cassandra dodges Audrey's counterattack.[6]

Coup de graceEdit

Cassandra cuts off Audrey's arms. Then Rachel's remaining leg, then arms. Then Nina's arms.[7]

But when Cassandra is about the deliver the coup de grace to Audrey, her cut veers off course, delivering a non-fatal wound.[8]


Raki frees Rafutera from guard escort. Though seriously wounded, she alters Cassandra's sword movement through Yoma power harmonization.[9]

Scene 118a

While Raki holds off more guards, trainees try regenerating Rafutera.[10]


Miria momentarily awakens during each attack on Hysteria. But Hysteria keeps wounding her on each attempted attack.[11]

Miria rethinks her technique. Her new starting point is her Yoma power limit at Pieta, pushing the original Phantom performance into unknown territory.[12]

Now she can hit Hysteria.[13]

Her major concern: can she defeat Hysteria before Miria herself awakens?[14]

Additional detailsEdit

Title refers to 死闘 (mortal combat) in the eastern region of スタフ (Sutafu). スタフ = Sutafu. の = of. 死闘 = mortal combat. Can also be simplified as "Combat in Sutafu."

Region's name, a transliteration of "staff," may allude to a military staff.
