Episode 13: Inheriting the Dream
As Haruto must keep Valkyrie and Medusa from placing Matsuki in despair, Shunpei questions his worth in helping in the fight against the Phantoms.
Dub notes: This episode is 18 seconds shorter than the BD counterpart. Mostly action scene cuts here.
Episode 12: The Sweets of Hope
After receiving a new Magic Stone from Kizaki, Shunpei believes that Haruto’s abilities are getting better enough for him to start teaching him magic. Meanwhile, a high school student named Tetsuya begins an apprenticeship at a sweets shop and is targeted by the Phantoms.
Dub notes: This episode is 1:12 shorter than the BD counterpart. Most of the heavy cuts come from the removal of the majority of the donut shop scenes.
Episode 11: A Promise to Protect
While hunting down Gargoyle and having to deal with Kizaki, Haruto appears to fall into a trap set up by Phoenix.
Dub notes: This episode is only 18 seconds shorter than the BD counterpart. Most of the cuts here are just general action scene trims without anything major being cut entirely.
Episode 10: NSA Section Zero
The National Security Agency’s Section Zero obtains a green Magic Stone, and so Kizaki abducts Wajima so he can commission his own Wizard Ring. At that time, a Phantom targets a Gate in the form of a child traveling from Akita to Tokyo, leaving Haruto alone on his mission.
Dub Notes: This episode is 33 seconds shorter than the BD counterpart. Not a lot of cuts here during the action sequences, so the majority of the cut footage is, as almost always, the donut shop sequence.
Episode 9: Dragon’s Roar
Haruto and Shunpei watch over Hiroki until the Phantom case is solved. However, with Phoenix still on the loose, Haruto finds himself outmatched until he discovers how to tap into the power of the Phantom within him, unleashing a new form.
Dub Notes: This episode is 1:02 shorter than the BD, although the bulk of the cut footage is shortened action sequences.
Episode 8: A New Magic Stone
After a mysterious white Garuda delivers a new Magic Ring, Wajima works to get it set in a new ring. Meanwhile, Medusa sends out Ghouls to attack a young boy who is suspected of being a Gate as Haruto finds himself facing Phoenix.
We’re going to try a slightly more rapid release schedule this month. Originally, I was going to do one episode a day for the month of June, but in order to release the two-part arcs at the same time, we’re gonna do two episodes together every other day. If I can keep to this schedule, we’ll get a good way into Wizard by the end of the month, at which point I’ll be taking a short vacation before the next Ghost box releases. Dub episodes will continue to release on Sunday or Monday as usual.
Dub Notes: This episode is 56 seconds shorter than the BD counterpart. A large portion of the donut shop sequence is removed, making up the bulk of the cut footage.
