1 I've Been Waiting for this Day
ずっとこの日を待っていた
October 7, 2019

On his first day as a member of ARKS, Ash, a man on a journey of self-discovery plagued by a recurring dream of a woman that speaks of fate, is recruited into the Oribe Unit where he meets a fellow comrade named Afin, whom insists on calling him "partner." The two find themselves in a dangerous situation when the unit is ambushed by falspawn and slaughtered. Able to escape with the help of experienced ARKS members, Zeno and Echo, the group comes across a mysterious white-haired girl and an even more mysterious masked man intent on killing her.

2 Eerie Naverius
不気味なナベリウス
October 14, 2019

Following the previous episode's events, Ash and Afin head to the medical center to visit Matoi, the white-haired girl they saved whom is now awake and feeling better but still cannot recall anything from her past or explain why she was on Naverius that day. The three are later recruited into a mission to traverse the forest planet with Commander Kohana in order to locate falspawn in the area and eradicate them. Upon defeating several in such a short time, the F-Factor particles become too much for Kohana to handle and she goes berserk. With more mysteries brewing than answers, the rookies begin to see another side to the heroic ARKS.

3 Perfect ARKS
完全なるアークス
October 21, 2019

A commotion in the early hours of the morning leads Ash into a fiery battle against Dark Ragne, an imposing spider-like falspawn, and an even fiercer warrior in the form of a small girl named Klariskrays. Ash learns the history of the Council of Six and their epic battle that took place on Naverius against Dark Falz forty years ago, however, he soon discovers that not everything he was taught was entirely accurate. The facade of the perfect ARKS is collapsing as more and more of the organization's dark past begins to affect innocent bystanders, starting with the disappearance of several ARKS members on Naverius.

4 The Starting Weapon
始まりの器
October 28, 2019

After saving Matoi from the grave monument, Ash is shown a vision from Xion about the key to a new event: the Starting Weapon, a staff which is hidden within a cave in the frozen tundra of Naverius. On his journey, Ash meets a fresh assortment of characters associated with the ARKS. Ulc, a waitress at Franka's Cafe, is eager to prove herself as a future trainee despite lacking photon aptitude. Her childhood friend, Theodore, in contrast proves to be a talented yet meek Force with questionable opinions. Ash and Afin then suddenly find themselves caught in the thick of an epic battle on Naverius' snowy wastelands where they finally come face-to-face with the creature spoken of in rumors, the rampaging dragon named Haddred.

5 Falspawn Full Assault
ダーカー強襲
November 4, 2019

Falspawn have appeared on Ship 128, Themis and the ARKS are ordered to go the ship to help out. Ash and Afin proceed to defeat the falspawn while they also meet Huey, the number six on the Council of Six, and Klariskrays. Meanwhile, Matoi goes to Themis as well as part of the medical team to help the injured. Ash approaches the masked man, who still keeps telling him to kill Matoi, before going with Zeno and Ulku to Zone C9 for backup where the battle against the falspawn rages on.
