Teito Klein is a young student at the Barsburg Military Academy living with his best friend Mikage. They are getting ready for their final exams using their abilities, the Zaiphon. Teito stumbles upon a dark secret pertaining to his hidden past (which he is unable to remember) and attempts to escape from the Academy. Attempting to assassinate Ayanami, the man who killed his father, he is captured and sent to a cell. However, he escapes with the help of Mikage and manages to break free from the academy.

After Teito crashes, one of the men, Frau, carries him to the Church. Teito attempts to escape, only to be brought back into the church. The three men introduce themselves as Frau, Castor, and Labrador- all bishops of the Church, which lies in the 7th District of the Barsburg empire. Teito wonders about the condition of Mikage, who had helped him escape from the Academy. Teito enters the Library, wishing to know more about his murky past and his connection to the Raggs Kingdom. He decides to find out the truth about the Raggs Kingdom and his past. Meanwhile, back at the Academy, Mikage is questioned by Ayanami as to whether he helped Teito escape or not. When he refuses to answer, Ayanami gives him a choice: either to save his family, which he treasures, or to save Teito.

Teito decides to leave the Church and help Mikage. Teito stumbles upon an old man who tells Teito he can grant his wish. Teito then decides to run off by himself. Frau interrupts his thoughts, telling him that it might be his fate that he came to the Church. Frau and Teito fight using Zaiphon powers, but Frau is too strong and gains the upper hand. Castor realizes that Teito is a member of the Academy (as only those people have the ability to wield the Zaiphon). During the fight, Teito finally reveals his name. After waking up, Teito decides to go to the courtyard, where he sees the old man from before. Frau, realizes something is wrong. In the meantime, Mikage at the Academy is still unsure of which side to choose: either saving Teito or his family (namely his sister).
To the Depths of the Earnest Prayer (ただひたすらなる祈りの果てに,Tada Hitasura naru Inori no Hate ni?)
Teito talks with the old man, and tells him his wish to see Mikage. The old man places an odd symbol on Teito's neck while Teito has a vision of running toward Mikage. The flower that Labrador gave him from before stops him, and he realizes that the Bishops are there in front of him. Frau begins to attack the old man, who turns out to be a "Kor". The Bishops fight the man, and though Teito wants to help, Frau tells him he will only hurt the man's soul. Frau manages to release the Kor from the old man's soul and then gets rid of the symbol on Teito's chest. Teito asks Castor what a Kor is. Kor are creatures that tamper with men's desires- they grant the man's wish, but he or she is then put into a string of dark events in which the person is never satisfied with his or her wishes and eventually falls into darkness, becoming a host for the Kor. Back at the Academy, Mikage makes his final choice: he won't betray his best friend. An enraged Ayanami releases a surge of Zaiphon at Mikage.

Mikage decides to stay with Teito at the Church, and while they are talking, they are attacked by a Kor sent by Ayanami. Teito fights the Kor, but can not hurt it. Frau appears and cleanses the man's soul from the Kor. At night, Teito reveals to Mikage his connection with the Raggs Kingdom.

At the entrance of the Church, Mikage helps a girl who has the Kor marking. Before Mikage can take the girl to the bishops, the girl becomes a Kor and attacks him.

Mikage, controlled by Ayanami, is still fighting Teito while Frau is on his way. Teito finally awakens with his eyes bloody-red and the Eye-of-Mikhail on his hands. The Collar on Teito's neck is close to bursting. Half out of control, Teito sends out multiple shots of Zaiphon damaging mass of the room. Ayanami uses a Binding-Zaiphon to strangle him and stop him, so he can't do much damage. Frau finally appears recognized by Ayanami as the God "Zehel", one of the Seven Ghosts.

Teito decides to leave the church believing he should not cause anyone anymore trouble, on the way he meets Castor who asks him if he knows the shinigami Zehel. When Teito reveals he knows it was Frau, Castor puts him to sleep. As Castor gets ready to erase his memories, Frau interferes and says that if he is to erase his memory of seeing him as Zehel, then he will also forget Mikage's last smile. Frau's scythe goes out control and tries to attack an unconscious Teito, who awakens as the god Mikhail. Mikhail insulted then uses illusions to threaten Castor and Frau who can barely stand againest Mikhail's power, Mikhail realising that they are the seven ghosts says that if they were normal humans then they would have died or passed out.

Teito decides to take it, and Castor says he must pass the written exam first: memorize 7700 chapters from 77 volumes of Barsburg Bible in half a month. It took Frau three years to memorize it, but when Teito takes a look at one of the books, he realizes he has read them before. Teito reveals he remembers most of it. The second exam tests the person's ability to use Zaiphon techniques. When Teito doesn't progress with using a bascule, or staff, Castor gives Teito a Frau doll with incredible speed. After the doll acts like a pervert to the three sisters, Teito activates the staff and blows the doll up. After a talk with Labrador, Teito decides to learn and expose the truth of the world. While wandering in the hall, Teito sees a person looks like Mikage, but unfortunately is an examinee named Hakuren Oak. Hakuren sees the Bishops Exam Participating Mark on Teito's neck and declares Teito his rival.

A man is seen making an agreement with a Kor. Then it switches to Teito and Hakuren who get into an argument, and both of them agree that if they weren't in a Church, they'd beat each other up. Then as Hakuren walks away, Mikage jumps from Teito's shoulder to Hakuren's head. Teito rushes after them and ends up watching Assistant Arch-Bishop Bastian demonstrating how to destroy a Kor without hurting the vessel. When its over, Teito runs into Frau, Castor, and Labrador. They encourage him in his studies, and Castor tells Teito that starting that night he's going to give Teito special training. Teito is finally moved from the guest room, into the dorms for the Bishop Candidates. It turns out that his roommate is Hakuren Oak. After cleaning his Bascules, Hakuren declares that they should practice with their Bascules. So they make their way to the training room, where they're greeted by an ex-criminal. Suddenly Aldo, the criminal, collapses. Teito and Hakuren take him to the infirmary, causing them to be late to class. The Bishop Candidates enter the training hall, where hundreds of Kor are trapped in a water barrier.

Aldo, the criminal, is mysteriously murdered. Later that night Teito can't sleep so he goes for a walk. He ends up stopping by a picture of a woman holding a baby. Then he gets a flashback of a strange man holding him when he was a child. He then returns to his room. The next day Teito heads towards the library and ends up seeing a vision of his past again, causing him to fall out of his chair. He then is joined by Hakuren and Frau.

Then Assistant Arch-Bishop Bastian comes and confiscates it after hitting Frau upside the head. They both leave after that. Later Teito is seen looking for Frau's room in order to return his broken Bascule. As he approaches it he overhears Frau and Castor talking about him. Frau senses someone at the door and opens it to reveal a shocked Teito. He apologizes to Frau, then runs off upset. He has another flashback about his life as a church orphan with "Father."

Castor, Labrador, and Frau talk about the mysterious figure who attacked Castor. That night Teito begins his special training with Castor and the "Frau" dolls. When Teito returns to his room, Hakuren inquires about what he was doing so late at night. As Teito changes, Hakuren notices the sklave tattoo on Teito's lower back. Then Hakuren tells Teito the reason he wants to become a Bishop. One night during his training session, Castor gives him a professional-grade Bascules and tells him to try it out on the "Frau" dolls. He sends them flying and when hes done, Castor invites Hakuren to join them, since he'd been watching the whole thing for a while. On the way back both Hakuren and Teito are attacked by a shadow monster. They are saved by Frau. Both of them wake up back in Frau's room and Frau explains that what attacked them was a Wars. Teito declares that when he becomes strong to protect Hakuren, he wants to become his friend. Frau makes a vague comment about what the scythe is doing to him.

Castor attacks the strange man, who disappears in a cloud of black smoke, but not before saying that the Church isnt on Teito's side and to ask "That foolish Bishop" about it.

Frau decided to save Teito and leave the Eye of Mikhail to fall in enemy hands. After cheering Teito up for losing the Eye of Mikhail, the other bishops give Frau a plant. Because bishop Bastian fell into the darkness, he was not reborn as a human, instead he was reborn as a tree. Frau planted the tree in the garden of the church so Bastian would be with them for many years to come. Teito finally recognises Hakuren as his friend and prepares for the bishop examn. On their way to the examn Teito accidentally steps on a key token that one of the bishops dropped and broke it. Unfortunately for Teito, that same bishop, Lance, is their head examiner...

After the examn starts, all the aspirant bishops enter the first hall. This chamber uses the fear in peoples hearts to hold them down, after Teito gathers his resolve he manages to walk out as one of the first. The next challenge is to answer questions in several rooms using their Zaiphon while trying to stay alive. Halfway through the examn, Teito decides to help the old men to cross the rope bridge. Finally they reach the last challenge: the challenge states that only one of them can pass through the door of Victor and the other has to use the door of the Defeated. After fighting each other, the winner has to write his name on the wall before passing through the door of the Victor. After arguing about it, they both run off through the door of the Defeated, while writing "Damn You!" in place of the names.

Bishop Lance appears and tells them that their selfless solution made them pass.
Led By The Light In The Water's Depth, He Spies Upon... (水底の光に導かれ、覗きしものは…,Minasoko no Hikari ni Michibikare, Nozokishi Mono wa...?)
After passing the first examn, Teito and Hakuren get to see the progress of others and how some fumble at the last challenge when their greedy nature makes them fail. Teito and Hakuren learn that the old guys they helped before were in fact Former Assistant Archbishops who tagged along to asses the progress of the participants. Meanwhile, the protectors of the church prepare for a dark threat as the military advances towards the church. Teito and Hakuren go to Lazet, the mermaid, as the Former Assistant Archbishops suggested and she takes them to an inner sanctuary where Teito gets to see his father and Father, the priest who raised him. He got told to never forget who he is, the Prince of Raggs Kingdom. Afterwards, they hurry back to the courtyard where bishop Lance is impatiently waiting for them. The second part of the examn is a challenge to face their inner daemons inside a room. They pass when they come out the other door.

Beyond The Heart's Darkness (心の闇のその先に,Kokoro no Yami no Sono Saki ni?)
The second exam resumes for the remaining trainees and comes in the worst form imaginable: the physical realisation of their deepest fears. When someone fails to overcome their fears, they fall through the bridge and fail. Teito gets to face his biggest enemy, Ayanami in the flesh. After charging blindly at Ayanami, Teito gets to see visions of the hurt and pain he caused Mikage and his family. Meanwhile, Hakuren finds his hated father on the ground with an unknown person in a black cape and weapon standing over him. Hakuren sees a vision of his father telling him he is no longer his son if he joins the church. The grim reaper tells Hakuren they should finish his father's pathetic, heartless life. The constant talking about Hakuren finally gets to Teito who is starting to blame himself for everything he has done to his best friend. When Ayanami charges at him, he is petrified and unable to move to dodge the attack and gets impaled by Ayanami's sword. Finally, the last trainees that haven't failed yet find the strength to face their fears. Hakuren saves his father and forgives him. Teito on the other hand is starting to go in shock. Some of the examiners worry for his life and urge bishop Lance to terminate the examn. It is then when Teito figures out that his real enemy is not Ayanami but himself, the part of him that is blaming himself for getting Mikage killed.
When Teito is ready and attempts to leave the second examination, the rest of the church gets invaded by the imperial army. And when Teito opens the door to exit the examination room, he finds himself in a dark, underground corridor instead of the exit. After a few seconds someone walks from the darkness towards Teito and this time, it is the real Ayanami who is standing in front of him...
The Justice of Those Who Lack Love Is... Oh Heart That Is Stolen By Darkness, Forever... (愛無き者の正義はいずこに…。闇に奪われし心よ、永遠に…,Ai Naki Mono no Seigi wa Izuko ni... Yami ni Ubawareshi Kokoro yo, Eien ni...?)
Ayanami appears in front of Teito and Teito wonders if Ayanami is just an illusion like before. Ayanami mocks Teito for still relying on the Eye of Mikhail when it is not even there anymore. Ayanami uses his Zaiphon to bring Teito and himself to the center of the earth, where he threatens "it is the first and last world you shall ever see". Teito attacks Ayanami, who mocks him for being weak. Ayanami tells Teito to attack him for real, and Teito asks why he is here. In the hall, Frau is still waiting for Teito to exit the examination room and Hakuren runs up to him to tell him that imperial forces have stormed the church. Suddenly, Kuroyuri appears saying sie wanted to kill the gardener (Labrador) who killed Haruse. Bishop Lance gets into a fight with one of Ayanami's men. Ayanami asks Teito if his memories of traveling with Fea Kreuz have returned yet. Castor captures the man who was the spy in the church and asks why he became a puppet of the military. Labrador erases the memory of the spy, so he may start anew when one of Ayanami's men kills him. Ayanami's men attack Castor and Labrador and Labrador is thrown aback. Bishop Lance defeats the man who was attacking him. Kuroyuri throws dark energy at Frau and tells him to show his true form as Zehel. Ayanami, meanwhile, is trying to access Teito's memories but Fea Kreuz (Vetrag) is stopping him. Ayanami's arm gets torn off and Teito realizes that Father was one of the Seven Ghosts. Ayanami's arm regenerates and Teito knows he has to live for those who died for him. He throws another attack at Ayanami that gets deflected and Ayanami tells him that he hasn't changed at all. Frau keeps using his scythe to cut away at the darkness that Kuroyuri is emitting. It seems Kuroyuri is falling apart from the same thing that killed Haruse. However, the more Frau attacks, the darker Kuroyuri becomes. Teito and Ayanami continue fighting, and Mikage gets hit by one of the attacks. Teito runs to catch the falling Mikage and realizes he has to remember what he is fighting for. Kuroyuri is pushed back by Frau's light, which he calls love. Frau tells Kuroyuri her justice is flawed and the black flowers Kuroyuri was holding fade away. Ayanami tells Teito to search his memories for the location of Pandora's Box, or the hostages in the church will die until Teito remembers.
The Heart Is Lead By The Truth On The Other Side... (真実は幾重にも連なる心の彼方に…,Shinjitsu wa Ikue ni mo Tsuranaru Kokoro no Kanata ni...?)
Teito uses the power of the Eye of Mikhail to summon Frau, Castor, Labrador, Lance, and the Black Hawks. He then sends them, himself, and Ayamani to a white place where they're surrounded by giant figures of the Seven Ghosts. Both groups start to battle each other in earnst. They become locked together in battle, until Ayamani splits the bonds. Then he and the rest of the Black Hawks disappear through a portal Kuroyuri summoned. Frau and the others disappear, too, leaving Teito alone with Mikage in human form. They talk then Teito also leaves. Frau, Labrador, and Castor are all waiting for him as he exits the Bridge of Trials. They tell him that he passed the exam and is now an apprentence Bishop, with his mentor being Frau. They then tell him that he and Frau are gong to escape through a secret passage built for the Pope in case of emergency. While they run towards the secret exit, Teito runs into Hakuren. They talk briefly, then Teito continues to run with the others. Before they leave Teito declares his intentions of what he wants to do from now on. Everyone approves and he bids them farwell. Frau and Teito get on a Hawkzile and with Labrador's flower guide, make their escape.
