Yasuki would later apologize to Akito, stating Mimane getting too excited about the outside world whenever newcomers arrive as his reason.[1]

Yasuki accompanied Akito, Arumi, Mimane, Chikage and Shinshou to capture the black mass that Arumi saw in her divination. After a few years in their capture, the mass would reveal itself as Azami. Azami gave them the information they required about a weakened god from whom they could take a Stone Shard from, providing them a plan to carry out their goals under the condition they follow her terms.
