|Spoiler Warning: Plot details, ending details, or both are in the text which follows.|
Nina Fortner lives in Heidelberg with her foster parents. She starts receiving anonymous e-mails that seem to be from a pretender. In a session with Dr. Geitel, Nina tells him that she stopped having nightmares.
Nina thinks Peter is sending her the e-mails, but Peter tells her he is not sending her anything. After recalling the details about a criminal case where a familiy was murdered in a university lecture, Nina has a panic attack and leaves the classroom. Nina then realizes she does not have any memories from before she was ten years old.
Tenma keeps investigating about the murdered couples and ends up in the apartment of an old man. To Tenma's surprise, the old man knows who he is and tells him that he knew Johan and that he spent some time at his apartment. The old man tells that Johan used to call himself Franz back then and that he was interested in his war stories. The old man says that appealed Johan the most was fear.
Nina's friend arrange a meeting for Nina with her "Prince Charming", a boy from her class who is the one that apparently has been sending the e-mails. Upon meeting with him, Nina sees Johan at the distance and faints.
