The Scorched Halloween refers to the events that took place between 3:30 PM of 30th and 31st October, 2095.
It began with the Great Asian Union attacking Yokohama, where the Thesis Competition was being held. A battle arose with the JSDF 101 Independent Magic-Equipped Battalion fighting alongside Ten Master Clans' descendants, volunteers, and students present at the event.
After the battle was finished at Yokohama, Tatsuya under the name "Special Lieutenant" Ooguro Ryuuya activated the Strategic-Class Magic Material Burst on a vessel in Tokyo Bay, annihilating it. Afterwards, he activated the spell once more on Zhènhai Naval Port and Geojedo Base offshore, destroying it in seconds and wiping out an entire fleet stationed there.
