Erimiya's book has been stolen, and Maria has been injured in the robbery. Kai carries her back to the Tokugawa home, but she may not want any help that an Ashurum pawn has to offer. Yuuki and Kai's search for work leads them to what seems like a simple transport job, but they're about to find out that nothing is ever as easy as it seems. Meanwhile, Eiji meets with the sinister Ghibelline as his plans for Gald continue to unfold. "E'S: Volume 8" features the kind of strong storyline and gorgeous artwork that have made it a fan favorite.
