Ep 14 – “Universal Turbulence” (World Fraction) / “Wārudo Furakushon” (ワールドフラクション)
Being an academic in the study of World-class magic, Regan offers Shiroe and Akatsuki an explanation of the World Fraction spell and its thrice use in the Elder Tales history, with Shiroe correctly deducing the third time being the Apocalypse. Regan explains that long ago the Human, Elf and Dwarf races destroyed the Alv kingdom out of technological envy. Seeking revenge, the remaining Alves cast the first World Fraction which resulted in the creation of the endlessly respawning demi-humans which subsequently pushed the planet into a world war. This caused humanity to create powerful hybrid races to aid in the war, until they were forced to cast the second World Fraction which summoned the adventurers to their aid. Regan also points out when Shiroe’s name appeared in the world’s history and he confirms the events using the game’s rate of time as it correlates to the other world by taking into account the start of the game’s open beta and when he began playing Elder Tales. Regan then moves on to explain his Spiritual Theory whereby memories in the form of experience points are lost during the revival process—a theory which Shiroe decides to withhold from the Round Table for the time being. Meanwhile, Minori finally decides to speak her mind to the training group.
