When Jun came forward with concerns that the plan might create a new Anti Existence, Amagi laughed it off.

He first appeared when Tokio, Saika, and Cello confronted Geist for the last time and to rescue Klarinette. Geist revealed that Jyotaro is his master whom he had kept at his hideout as he had become catatonic. Geist explained that he intend to complete Jyotaro's research to create Immortal Dusk. Flugel interrupted that Jyotaro's plan had already failed and as the result, Amagi's mind was deteriorating. Geist won't listen to this until Jyotaro suddenly became a monster and then deleted Geist as he questioned his existence. However, this didn't last long as he crumbled into pieces of data but not before uttering his aunt's name, Ayaka, the moment he saw Saika.
