<br>In a professional [[VR]] game playing as [[magical girl]]s in WWII with her second-in-command [[Madhuri]], [[Asaka]] finds she needs to sacrifice her to win the game and suddenly starts thinking she's somehow actually [[Alice]]. The game is then suddenly cut short by an apparent critical server simulation error, but [[Asaka]]'s growing unease is again washed away by the joy of her life with [[Alice]].<br>
<br>[[Tanaka Yui]], [[Asaka]]'s therapist, suggests doing a dream study, and [[Patricia von Rohr]] comes to visit, both of them bringing up little oddities or inconsistencies in [[Asaka]]'s thoughts. The dream study returns an apparent suppressed memory, but one involving [[magical girl]]s and an [[Contact War|alien war]] that [[Asaka]] can't remember experiencing. Soon enough, all of reality seems to be changing for her—[[Madhuri]], her location, [[magical girl]]s. Finally running a full internal diagnostic, [[Asaka]] remembers what truly happened: she was forced to send her girlfriend [[Alice]] to her death to win a battle in the [[Contact War]]. Unable to process it, [[Asaka]] had [[Reformat|Reformatted]] herself and put herself inside a [[VR]] simulation where she could live with [[Alice]]. [[Tanaka Yui]] had been helping her face the truth after breaking into the simulation, along with [[Patricia von Rohr]] and [[Madhuri]], and even [[Asaka]]'s own internal representation of [[Alice]]. [[Patricia]] tells [[Asaka]] afterwards that [[Alice]] had planned on proposing.
