The east. The east. Towards the east――.
Believing it is the fastest route leading to Alterna, Haruhiro and his party decide to head towards the sea. But first they must bypass the mountainous valleys of enemy territory. As difficult as the journey sounds to be, they must also care for Mary.
Overcoming a series of accidents, fear and distress, they finally chance upon a beach. And a grounded ship. Their encounter with the mysterious pirate Momohina leads Haruhiro and his comrades to the Emerald Islands.
But just when luck would have it, the land of pirates is under siege by dragons!
