Synopsis

Regina strikes again and comes across a red crystal, causing her to change into someone much more evil as the girls explore a new area and try to learn more of the missing Princess.

Summary

One day Makoto walks with through a garden full of sculptures and talks about how much Princess Marie Ange loved them.

Suddenly Regina appears and laughs at this, explaining how she came to be closer to Mana. She states that she wants her and takes her away, leading the others to chase after her while trying to figure out her reason for showing up. Regina insists she has no other reason than to get Mana. In hopes of keeping peace, Mana reasons Regina should join them. She considers for a moment and acccepts.

It's then Makoto notices a statue resembling Marie Ange, and she points this out to the girls. They are surprised by its appearance and they begin to observe Joe and Ai nearby- also discussing the statue. When Regina spots them she finds amusement and Jo hands Ai over to her to see if anything happens, when she starts to cry Rikka uses a Lovead to make her fall asleep.

The girls start studying the statue and spot a red diamond. Regina is curious and she touches it, causing the statue to shatter into a million pieces. She grabs the diamond as the girls panic while trying to restore the status, but they are unable to do so. They try to find someone who can help fix it and they happen to find a man who can help. 

Strangely, Regina notes she feels remorse for what she did. The girls tell hr not to worry about it though, which calms her down. But suddenly a red light flashes from her hand and she observes it to find the red crystal causing it, which causes her to become overwhelmed by anger suddenly. She demands the girls hand over the other crystals but they refuse, as they are unable to.
