THE BLACK SWORDSMAN
After quarreling with her party, the young girl Silica, who is also a beast-tamer, storms off and loses her way in the forest, where she runs into monsters.
She is saved by Kirito, who just happens to be passing by, but loses her familiar, Pina.
Silica is in tears over the loss of her precious friend, so Kirito tells her that there's a way to revive familiars, and offers her free help.
Hesitant, Silica asks him why he would go so far to help her. Kirito's answer is quite unexpected...
