Upon arriving at the city, Arika meets her future friend and rival, Nina Wong, an Otome candidate at Garderobe.

When a mechanical monster called a Slave appears in the city, the Meister Otome Shizuru Viola is called upon to defeat it. Awed by a Meister Otome’s balance of grace and power, Arika is determined to become an Otome herself and follow in her mother’s footsteps.
