Although Fried thought it would be very difficult to get the villagers to accept Panis, they eventually agree to let her in the village. Soon, Panis begins to show signs of mysterious powers: her singing voice can make plants grow and gather birds and fish around her. The villagers, seeing this, call her an "angel." However, there are those who come to the island who target the angel, and one day, on the night of the red moon, a large shadow appears to attack Panis.
