The Princess and the Pilot
Charles Karino was born into the lowest caste, and so lives as a second-class citizen within the Levamme Empire. Due to his exceptional talent as a pilot, however, he was able to serve as a mercenary while the war against the Amatsukami continues to be fought. He is chosen for the top-secret mission to carry the noble Juana del Moral in the lone plane Santa Cruz on a three-day flight over contested seas to rejoin her betrothed Prince Carlo. Being apart from their everyday lives during this dangerous journey gives both a new perspective.
