|12||"The Captured Angelique"
"Toraware no Anjerīku" (囚われのアンジェリーク)
|At the end of last episode Angelique was kidnapped by Jet, much to the helplessness of the guys. Even J.D. could not stop Jet from getting away with Angelique. Angelique asks why Jet kidnapped her and why he hurt everyone, including J.D. who is like a brother since the two are artifacts. Jet replies that J.D., "the original", is defective and will eventually break down. The Aube Hunters figure out it was Erenfried who ordered Jet to take Angelique. Angelique is being experimented on by Erenfried for more research and development of Jinx at the Artifact Foundation's Headquarters in Farian. Just as the experimentation begins, the Aube Hunters come to save her. It then leads up to where the first episode began, the Aube Hunters breaking in and confronting Erenfried. They fight the Jinx and destroy all the units. Jet then engages them and the Aube Hunter guys attempt to fight him but lack the power, leading to their seeming defeat. However, hearing the voices of the Hunters, Angelique awakens her power, screaming "Don't hurt the people important to me!" and casts a healing light upon her comrades. With renewed strength, they defeat Jet, much to the shock of Erenfried. Director Yorgo arrives, telling them to cease fighting. Yorgo asks what Erenfried was up to as he ignored the Yorgo's order of suspension on dispatching the Jinx and did not report about the destruction they caused. Erenfriend declares he did it all for the Foundation and Yorgo calls him a fool. Angelique awakens to see that she is reunited with the rest of the Hunters. However, their time together is cut short as Yorgo comes in and apologizes for what happened but asks Rayne if he can talk with him. Yorgo tells Rayne that the Thanatos will soon be too much for the Silver Wood Knights to handle and that Angelique can save the world with her Purification power if it is tuned to the frequency of Jinx. Rayne objects saying it would be too much strain on her body. Yorgo argues it is the only way and Rayne responds to give him a night to think about it. After Rayne arrives back at where they are staying, Angelique tells him she would like to talk to him. She tells him that Erenfried said her power could save the world and if possible, she would do it. Rayne does not think the method is right and he does not want to put her in any danger but cannot deny Yorgo's words that her power might be the only way. The strain on her body could be too much though and she would end up dying but, he declares he will not let her die as long as he is around and they will all return to the Mansion. Rayne adds it might be unfair but he wants her to decide what to do and leaves. Angelique says how she wants to return to the Mansion with everyone but if she can save the world with her power, even at the cost of her life, she will do it.|
|13||"Return, and Then..."
"Kikan, soshite..." (帰還, そして...)
|Hyuga is angry that Rayne would put Angelique in harms way to sacrifice herself for the world but sees that Rayne is serious about protecting her. He then asks if the rest of the Aube Hunters will help him protect Angelique and they agree. The plan is to utilize the Jinx's remote control system and release Angelique's Purifying power to all of Arcadia. As Thanatos have habit to appear when one of their own is in danger, the Foundation plan on using this as an advantage as all the Thanatos will appear in one place to attack Angelique and therefore take them all out in one go. The Hunters declare this will be a race against time as Angelique has to keep her Purifying light going constantly and it will put a strain on her body, chancing her death. Everything appears to be going well as the Thanatos are weakened by Angelique's light and easy to destroy. However after 3 hours straight use of Angelique's power, she begins to lose consciousness while the gathered Thanatos all join together into a massive and strong Thanatos. The Thanatos destroys the tower emitting and amplifying the Purifying Light as Angelique is unconscious. Angelique however summons her powers, awaking from her nightmare, causing a massive light to appear. The giant Thanatos is frozen in pain and the Aube Hunter guys combine their attacks, destroying it. The group arrives back home at the Hidamari Mansion and have dinner. Everyone is happy the Thanatos threat is over for now but Nyx says it's not the end as someone called Erebos is manipulating the Thanatos. To settle everything, they have to defeat Erebos. The only one who can defeat Erebos is in fact the Queen, which is why it is important Angelique become the new Queen sooner. Hyuga reinstates his vow to protect Angelique and she takes the opportunity to command him to stop with the formal speech as well as calling her "Queen" or "Lady Angelique." She says that since they are friends, they should all talk casually. Soon after Angelique falls asleep at the table due to exhaustion from use of her powers. Rayne, J.D., and Hyuga avoid waking her up except a fire starts in the Mansion. Angelique wants to put out the fire as the Mansion will burn to the ground but Rayne stops her, saying it's too late and J.D. and Hyuga say they will look for Nyx. However, Nyx appears, holding a flaming torch and grins insanely, his face covered in strange purple marks. He tells them to turn to ash like the Mansion and chucks the torch at them, causing the stairs to be engulfed in fire. Thanatos begin to appear inside the room and overrun the Mansion, forcing the group to retreat to safety on the hill, escaping the flames and Thanatos. Angelique goes collapses in despair while watching Hidamari Mansion burn. J.D. carries her up the hill while Hyuga and Rayne fight off the Thanatos. Upon reaching a cliff, they are cornered by the Thanatos. One destroys the cliff, causing the group to fall. Angelique cries as the thought of losing everything, a teardrop hitting her cat Erwin, causing him to glow. The season ends with a light envelops the group as they crash to the ground, the cliff falling around and on top. A voice calls out "Angelique" and fades away.|

|August 3, 2008|
|Angelique and the others visit the Sacred Capital where she meets up with Renè at the Silver Wood Tree. There Renèe tells her he's getting ready to take over as the Leader of the Organization. Meanwhile, Roche and Bernard are searching for the truth about Nyx and the only clue they have is a letter. The history of Renè and Mathias is revealed, back when Mathias was told he could no longer be the Leader and was put in charge of training Renè to become the Leader. Erenfried finally finishes creating the Artifact chip that Mathias ordered him to in exchange for Yorgo's freedom. However, Mathias cut his half of the promise and has Erenfried thrown into jail. After chatting with Renè, Angelique goes back to her room where Bernard and Roche have finally arrived. They show her the letter which was written by August, one of Nyx's grandfather's friends. In the letter, however, August writes that he believes Nyx and the grandfather who'd left on a journey long ago are the same person. Even August began his own investigation as to Nyx's background but could find nothing. August besieges Angelique to save Nyx. Rayne suggests to go through the material once again while Angelique muses on her own personal thoughts and leaves the room with the claim for fresh air. Bernard finds Angelique, tells her that it's fine to cry and then says a phrase that she remembers from her past. Turns out Bernard is the son of a relative she stayed with after her parents died and the two of them had developed a very close relationship. When he left on a journey, he gave her the ivory rose necklace. The reason he's held it all this time is because he remembered the memento which also explained his great desire to find her when she disappeared. Back at the large prayer room, Mathias has appeared before the Highest Elder to announce Angelique's return. Extremely surprised as he expected Mathias to have long disappeared from the Sacred Capital, the Elder expresses his anger but it's short-lived as Mathias buries the dagger into his chest.|
"Seinaru Hanran" (聖なる反乱)
|August 10, 2008|
|Everyone is gathered for the crowning ceremony of Renè in the Sacred City palace. But Mathias interrupts the ceremony, claiming that he is the only one fit to be a king as there is no one who loves the capital more than he. He even chides Renè for complaining how he's a caged bird because of Renè's ignorance at how the world outside the capital truly is. Mathias pulls out the dagger which the Elder had wanted him to have, and notes the irony of how Renè had delivered it to him. The reason being was that it was an unspoken command to not only remove himself from the Sacred Capital but to commit suicide as his life truly meant nothing to them except as a substitute until the real Leader was born (aka Renè). His existence would have only been even more troublesome at such a turbulent time in Arcadia. He insinuates that the Elder can no longer order him from the capital, allowing the others to draw the conclusion as to what the Elder's fate was. He places the Artifact chip on his neck (similar to the one Carlyle had, the same one that Rayne created long ago) to receive the enhanced purification powers it's rumored to do for a user. Jet is ordered to take Angelique and when the others run to her rescue, Mathias shows the first uses of his new powers. Nobody knows what the Artifact chip truly does so it's quite the surprise (even for Mathias) when they realize the chip allows them to call and control the Thanatos. J.D. faces off with Jet and while J.D. doesn't want to hurt Jet, Jet has no hesitation. Just as Jet is about to deliver the final blow to J.D., Angelique screams out and stops Jet. This confuses and irritates Jet even more as he doesn't understand how a voice other than his Master's can control him. He begins to choke Angelique but Nyx shows up and rescues Angelique. He asks Angelique to follow him since he has very little time left and holds out his hand, asking her to take it. Angelique hesitates as she realizes her friends are fighting inside the Consortium but realizes that if she lets him go, he may be lost to her forever. She takes his hand and follows him. Bernard and Roche sees those two dashing away from the battle and Roche tries to chase after her, only for Bernard to stop him. Roche drops a picture to the ground as he shakes Bernard's hand off. Bernard picks it up, sees that it's a picture of Angelique and realizes something...|
|07||"A Night of Truth"
"Shinjitsu no Ichiya" (真実の一夜)
|August 17, 2008|
|With Angelique taken by Nyx, Mathias orders Jet to bring her back. The Aube Hunters try to chase after Jet but Mathias stops them with his newfound power. Meanwhile people in the Sacred City are being terrorized by the Thanatos which were summoned by Mathias. Jet does not understand his own thoughts of why Angelique's words stopped him even though she is not his master. He recalls J.D.'s words that Jet must have a heart also and becomes frustrated why certain memories keep replaying themselves in his mind. Nyx and Angelique get away by horseback while Jet is distracted and Jet declares his mission a failure. Bernard and Roche usher the people to safety from the Thanatos while the Aube Hunters continue to fight the Thanatos where Mathias is. J.D. manages to rescue Renè and Mathias states for him to be free to go anywhere he wishes and no longer be caged like a bird as the Hunters make their escape. Jet appears before them and the Hunters prepare to fight but Jet says he is not ordered to stop them. As they leave, Jet tells J.D. that there is one more person left who is underground, that being Erenfried, and disappears before J.D. can reply. Meanwhile Angelique and Nyx arrive at what is revealed to be Nyx's family villa. Angelique is simply happy he is alright but asks for him to tell her what happened that day when the Hidamari Mansion burned down. Nyx replies he has two hearts inside of him; one is himself, the other is Erebos, the one who sends the Thanatos into the world. When he was younger, the ship he and his family were in got caught in a fierce storm. As Nyx was drowning, he wished to live and that he would do anything. Erebos heard him and saved him, possessing him but Nyx's mother and father drowned. This is why Nyx fears and hates the sound of the sea as it was when Erebos first possessed him. Nyx adds that it must be Erebos' power inside his body that has kept him alive for 200 years and that he is the core that Erebos uses to help send Thanatos into the world. The only hope he had to get rid of Erebos was the Queen's Egg so he set out all over the world and found Angelique. When she becomes the Queen, Nyx wishes for her to give him a peaceful death. Nyx blames himself for making Angelique suffer, taking away her home and parents but Angelique says it was Erebos who did that and that Nyx was the one who gave her many precious things including a place to belong. Their time is cut short as Erebos takes over Nyx and declares he will kill Angelique. Meanwhile the Aube Hunters have taken refuge with Renè, Bernard and Roche at the Silver Wood, including an unconscious Erenfried whom J.D. rescued. Hyuga suggests they leave the Holy City and Renè says he knows a secret passage to get out. Angelique tries to fend off Erebos with her sword, saying she won't kill Nyx. Nyx momentarily regains control but Erebos takes over again, commenting on how strong Angelique has gotten before disappearing through a portal. All the Thanatos in the Holy City all disappear through a giant portal, recalled by Erebos.|

|Mathias is suffering from the Artifact chip he implanted upon himself. Jet returns and Mathias sees he does not have the Queen's Egg, Angelique, whom he had ordered to bring back.

The Aube Hunters are traveling to safety when Bernard realizes Roche is not with them. Erenfried wakes up and sees J.D., at first mistaking him for Jet. Angelique reunites with the group, much to everyone's relief. They all stay at Nyx's family villa from the previous episode while being concerned for Erenfried. Angelique reveals to them all about Nyx being possessed by Erebos. Bernard leaves to gets supplies in town and go looking for Roche. Renè is conflicted about Mathias' actions and how he was the closest one to him yet does not understand what happened. Back at the Holy City, Celestizam, Erebos appears before Mathias who pledges the cooperation of the city to Erebos now that his body, thanks to the Artifact chip, is now half controlled by the Thanatos. Mathias asks for Erebos to let him rule over the Holy City and Erebos complies, saying Mathias will surrender himself to him once the Thanatos take over his body. The Giant Silver Wood tree begins to wither and Roche witnesses it. Erenfried realizes his mistake of making the Artifact chip to amplify Purification Powers after Rayne tells him the user is at risk of being possessed by Thanatos, which is why he destroyed the information the first time. Erenfried wants to see Director Yorgo to apologize for all he has done and obtain information to stop the chip but Bernard reveals that Yorgo has been given the death penalty. Angelique comforts Erenfried and tells him to do something instead of cry. Erenfried leaves in the early morning and Rayne gives him instructions to get to Wodon faster to reach Yorgo, telling him he will leave his older brother to Erenfried as he cannot leave Angelique's side due to the threat of Erebos. Renè follows Erenfried outside and tells him not to blame himself for what happened to Mathias as he was the one who drove him up the wall. Erenfried promises to save Mathias as that is why he is going to save Yorgo. Renè gives Erenfried a pouch, saying it is a good luck charm. After Erenfried leaves, Renè makes up his mind to go back to the Holy City and become the Religious Leader and save Mathias. He is, as the Religious Leader, the only one who can save the Giant Silver Tree which is connected to all living things, thus all of Arcadia's vitality is dimming with its withering. The Aube Hunters, along with Bernard agree to go back to the Holy City.|

"Setsugen no Termination" (雪原のTermination)
|August 31, 2008|
|While traveling to Wodon to save Yorgo, Erenfried learns that Yorgo's execution is scheduled for the following morning, at sunrise. He begs for a carriage to borrow but no one helps him due to him being from the Foundation as they destroyed part of the village. After nearly being runover by a cart and horse, he gets an offer for a ride by an old man. Meanwhile Jet is wandering around and has a flashback of when he was first excavated and recalls being called "defective" due to not being a finished weapon like "the previous one", meaning J.D. Jet tells himself he is not defective and says he will carryout whatever his master's commands are, that being to find the Queen's Egg, Angelique as that was the last order Mathias gave him but also to find "Original" (what he calls J.D.). Erenfried makes it to Wodon and gets past the guards, racing to reach Yorgo before the sun rises. Bursting in before the firing squad could shoot Yorgo, Erenfried is apprehended but drops the pouch Renè had given him. Out of the pouch falls a Holy City badge which causes the execution on hold for Erenfried to be questioned due to have something from the Religious Order. Erenfried reveals the situation at the Holy City, of Mathias' rebellion and the new Religious Leader, Renè having to flee. He says in order to stop Mathias, he needs Yorgo's help since the Artifact chip to amplify Purification Powers is a Foundation project. The Congress agrees that if Yorgo and the Foundation can stop Mathias and recover the Holy City, his execution will be dismissed and the work will be considered as compensation. Yorgo and Erenfried set out to Farian to work on how to get the Ship of Stars to fly once more. Jet appears before the Aube Hunters, stating he will capture both "The Original and the Queen's Egg" and return to the Holy City. J.D. steps forward and tries to reason with Jet, telling him he has no more masters to answer to and should make his own decisions. Jet says he was made to fight J.D. and J.D. concludes that he must fight Jet in order to protect Angelique. The two fight and J.D. constantly gets knocked down only to get up again, saying that emotions can give you strength at times while Jet said emotions merely cause hesitations which lead to defeat. Jet starts suffering from flashbacks once more and believes that if he simply destroys Angelique, all the memories of her will be erased as well. But as he goes to attack her, his emotions kick in and he hesitates attacking, allowing J.D. the time to knock him out, defeating him. While unconscious, Jet remembers Erenfried saying he was able to complete Jet by using research from J.D. but that the Original, J.D., had emotions which was useless and defective for an Artifact. Jet was believed to be a perfect Artifact due to following his master's orders unlike the Original. Jet awakens to Angelique crying and when he asks her why, she says it is because he and J.D. are hurting one another. Jet then returns the handkerchief she had used when tending to his wound and tells her she is the only one he does not want to see cry. He leaves despite the Hunters telling him he could stay with them, Jet stating "I am also defective."|

Renè asks for Mathias' forgiveness for never considering how he felt and instead worrying simply about himself. Renè promises to change the Order so what happened to Mathias would never occur again.

Everyone pitches in to help finish restoring the Ship. Later that night Jet appears before Erenfreid, asking him to disassemble him as defects should be disassembled, declaring himself a defect since whenever he is around Angelique, priority to fulfill his missions decline. Erenfreid tells Jet he cannot take him apart for that as it is a heart, which he used to believe Artifacts could not have but J.D. proved him wrong by saving him from jail and since Jet told J.D. where he was, showing he cared. He tells Jet to act as he wishes from now on, being his own master. Erenfreid asks Jet to help with the restoration with the Ship of Stars, not as an order but as a favor.

|13||"An Eternal Arcadia"
"Eien no ARUKADIA" (永遠のアルカディア)
|September 28, 2008|
|The Aube Hunters on the Ship of Stars arrive to the place where Erebos is, discovering it is a desolate Arcadia all except for the Hidamari Mansion which is in perfect condition. Everything in the Mansion is how they remember it except a fire suddenly breaks out and separates Angelique from the guys, forcing her upstairs and into a room where Nyx is. While Angelique faces Nyx, Hyuga, Rayne, and J.D. all have visions of when they first met Angelique only she tells them she does not want to become Queen and forced to be alone in the Holy Land. The guys see through the impersonators easily and break the illusion, only to face a new opponent which turns out to be the three Queen's Eggs Renè had told them about. The illusion of the Hidamari Mansion is dispelled by Angelique's declaration that she does not want a fake Hidamari and the real one is in everyone's hearts. The Nyx before her turns into Erebos as Nyx and he states the desolate world will be Angelique's resting place. Angelique fights Nyx and tells him that even though the Mansion is gone, she still has her friends and their hearts are connected. Erebos comments that the others left her alone in the world and Angelique says they will all save Arcadia through their own ways, living together even without the Mansion, adding that Nyx is a cherished friend. Rayne, J.D. and Hyuga arrive to the battle and tell Nyx they also consider him a friend. Nyx briefly regains control and Angelique says she will bear Nyx's sadness as well as Erebos' crime while protecting beautiful Arcadia. Erebos takes over once more, unleashing his full power and changing his form. The Aube Hunters attack Nyx, protecting Angelique but the three forms of the past Queen's eggs attack them. Angelique charges Nyx with her sword, telling Erebos to give Nyx back. Erebos goes to deal a fatal attack to Angelique but the spirit of the true Nyx appears, holding his arm back, telling Erebos he will not let him do as he pleases. This allows Angelique to deal a finishing blow to Erebos and call her Purification Powers to purify Erebos. Nyx thanks Angelique for freeing him from the dungeon of time and he is now free to die but Angelique ask him to stay with them. Nyx replies having lived for 200 years, he cannot endure more pain but Angelique tells him to continue living for happiness. As Nyx begins to disappear into light, Angelique tells him they will reunite in the near future. Ervin appears and light burst from him, bringing Angelique to another place. The voice Angelique heard at the end of Season 1 speaks, identifying itself as the unification of all consciousness which exist in the universe. He tells her how he has waited for her for many years as all the previous Queen's Eggs died during their journey and Erebos collected their sadness and hate. Because of her strong spirit and kind personality she healed the girl's souls and purified Erebos. It was because of her great determination that she was chosen to be the Queen. Angelique agrees to go to the Holy Land and protect Arcadia. She then appears before Rayne, Hyuga and J.D. in her winged form and thanks them silently before unleashing an Aurora into the sky, healing the land, and disappearing into the sky. Angelique is seen watching the land of Arcadia from a distance, smiling. Rayne and Erefreid are seen talking to each other, calling the other "Professor" and "Eren" which each replies that did they not say to call them that but smiles.

Renè is seen overlooking the Holy City, talking out loud to Mathias before leaving but the spirit of Mathias is seen watching over him, smiling and saying he is always with him. J.D. is leaving to continue his journey and Hannah and Sally tell him to remember to tell them stories of his trip. Hyuga meets with Sir Dion and Renè, declining to return to being a knight, instead patrolling around Arcadia because Angelique is protecting it. Roche says he will find a way to see Angelique and Bernard says he will continue waiting for her. Back at the Foundation, Erenfreid says he will reunite with Angelique someday and looks at the capsule beside him before leaving. Inside the capsule is revealed to be Jet, who survived the explosion in which he opens his eyes and says "Angelique." Rayne looks outside a window and says he will reunite with her someday. J.D. says he will continue on his journey until the day he meets Angelique again. In a gazebo, the figure of Nyx is seen holding Ervin who is cuddling in his arms.
