Suguro's joint strategy pays off, and the ExWires have success in their sights! But then a gigantic moth demon (chuchi) appears, and attacks Rin the moment he lets his guard down!
Vowing to become an exorcist, Rin is taken to True Cross Academy by the mysterious Mephisto, a friend of Shiro's. The colossal, fortress-like school; Yukio at the top of the class - it's all so mind-boggling for Rin!
Later, Rin heads to the Exorcist Cram School, as Mephisto warns: "No one can know that you're the son of Satan."
When Yukio takes on a case, Rin tags along with him to the Exorcism Supply Shop. There he meets Shiemi, a girl with ailing legs, tending to her garden. Shiemi seems devoted to this garden, as it was left to her by her late grandmother. Just then, Yukio shows up to examine Shiemi's legs. Finding demonic traces, he speculates that the garden is the cause.
Rin is always snoozing in class, much to star pupil Suguro's irritation. He's striving to become an exorcist so he can restore his family's temple in Kyoto, and being classmates with such a slacker is more than he can bear. Both are hot-tempered and quick to fight, so it's not surprising when they finally clash one day!
The biggest headache of Rin's school life is his daily meals. Mephisto has only given him a 2,000-yen bill to live on, putting the swanky school cafeteria out of his reach!

To overcome her shyness, Shiemi secretly vows to "Make friends!" But her attempts to approach Izumo are foiled by her klutziness. After displaying her Tamer skills in class, she finally asks Izumo, also an aspiring Tamer, to be her friend! But Izumo looks down on Shiemi, using her as an errand girl. Soon after, the Exorcist Cram School holds a boot camp in Rin's dorm.
Southern Cross Monastery, where Rin and Yukio grew up, has come under attack by a mysterious assailant! Leaving behind these cryptic words: "I will never forgive anyone related to Satan," the masked assailant escapes...
The assailant has escaped, but the monastery attack case is winding down. Just then, an elderly man calling himself Ernst appears before Yukio. He reveals the secret of Yukio and Rin's birth, as well as what the Vatican did their mother. Shocked, Yukio also begins to harbor doubts about the Knights of the True Cross. Meanwhile, the injured assailant has stumbled into Shiemi's garden at the Supply Shop...
In light of the incidents following the monastery attack, Mephisto is dismissed from his post as director. The Order's Supreme Advisors, the Grigori, are ousted as well, paving the way for Ernst to become Pope. And the newly appointed Preceptor of the Japan Branch is revealed to be...
