As the door is unsealed, a scream is heard as Akeno removes the coffin revealing a boy wearing a female school uniform, whom Rias introduces as Gasper Vladi. As Gasper accidentally freezes time when Issei touches him, Issei learns that Gasper possesses the Sacred GearForbidden Balor View, which was the reason for him to be sealed due to his incapability of controlling that ability. Rias, Akeno and Yuuto, then leave to help in the preparation for the meeting of the Three Factions, leaving the others to train Gasper. During the training, Azazel suddenly arrives at the schoolyard where he teaches Saji, Issei, and Gasper on how to better control Gasper's Sacred Gear before leaving.

  5. In the light novel, Xenovia chased Gasper for "training" inside the building, while in the anime, they were behind the old school building.
