The story begins in Yuushu (幽州), where a couple of Yellow Scarves troops are harassing some villagers. Ryuubi Gundam steps in and easily chases off the two. He is thanked, and soon, Kousonsan Ez-8 arrives and comments on how Ryuubi should think before he acts. Kousonsan also informs Ryuubi of their Master, Roshoku GM Cannon, who will soon head out to subjugate the Yellow Scarves forces. Before he left, Roshoku presents the Ryuuteiken (龍帝剣) to Ryuubi. Ryuubi comments on how rusted it is, but Roshoku comments on how Ryuubi is still rooted to the village and unable to see past the rust, and that he should use the Dragon's Eye. After Roshoku left, Ryuubi climbs up a pagoda, and looks beyond the horizon, finally understanding Roshoku's words. However he spots a battle in the distance, and fears Roshoku's safety.

Both Ryuubi and Kousonsan arrive at the scene to see a heated battle between Roshoku and Bagengi Zaku, however Roshoku is defeated in battle. Ryuubi steps in, and swears to serve justice in Mirisha, causing the Ryuuteiken to glow, and finally awaken. Ryuubi then proceeds to easily finish off Bagengi, and the remaining Yellow Scarves troops retreated. With his final words, Roshoku tells Ryuubi to explore Mirisha, and become a true dragon.

Ryuubi is travelling through a forest that lies south to his village, where he soon hears a battle. He soon sees two warriors engaging each other, one with red armour, and another with green armour. Ryuubi draws the Ryuuteiken to stop the battle, but it didn't awaken like when he was fighting against Bagengi. He decides to personally stop the two from fighting, but trips in the process. When he regains consciousness, the two warriors introduced themselves: The red one is called Chouhi Gundam, while the green one is Kan-u Gundam, though Chouhi prefers to call him Demon Beard. When asked why he wanted to stop the fight, Ryuubi commented on the Ryuuteiken, and deduced the two aren't evil. Chouhi then takes Ryuubi on a tour around his village, stating that he has been protecting it against the Yellow Scarves. However, word soon arrives that a small army of Yellow Scarves has appeared just outside the village.

Ryuubi, Chouhi and Kan-u rushes out in time to engage the Yellow Scarves army, led by Chouryou Messala, just outside the village. Chouhi and Kan-u easily defeats the troops with their finishing techniques, while Ryuubi repels them individually. Chouryou takes his chance while Ryuubi's back is exposed, but still fails. Ryuubi then proceeds to incapacitate him. When Kan-u decides to interrogate Chouryou to find the Yellow Scarves' stronghold, Chouryou used his witchcraft to escape.

However, Choukaku Palace Athene is not afraid, and has a plan to counter them. The East Wing of the army is led by Sousou Gundam, and decides to attack without Zhu Jun's order. The West Wing is led by Sonken Zephyranthes, and he too decides to attack. The two wing armies attack, and Chouhi wants to join in the battle. However Ryuubi stops him, saying that something is amiss. Back at the Main camp, Shushun is enraged at the unannounced attack from the wing armies. The two wing armies soon realize that the Yellow Scarves defense is spread too wide, and the invasion seems too easy. The Chou brothers have escaped.

Back at the Main camp, Shushun is getting impatient, but soon his troops ran when the Chou Brothers forced their way through, defeating him. The Chou Brothers believed they have escaped successful, but they are soon stopped by Ryuubi, Chouhi and Kan-u. Chouryou exclaimed that these are the ones that defeated him, and Choukaku decides to show their true power. The Chou Brothers combine to form the powerful Kouten The. O, and easily overpower the three. Ryuubi, Chouhi and Kan-u stands up, and are filled with a strong sense of justice to defeat Kouten, which leads to their own combination, the Trinity.

Outside the palace, Ryofu encounters Chou-sen Qubeley, who calls him Housen (奉先). Chou-sen is concerned about Ryofu letting Toutaku seize the Gyokuji, but Ryofu replies his only goal in life is to seek out strong warriors to quench his battle-hungry soul. Over at Sousou's camp just outside Rakuyou, Sousou watches on as Kakouton Giros is enraged at Toutaku's plot, while Kakouen Daras feels helpless about the situation. However, they are soon greeted by a wandering strategist, Shiba-i Sazabi. He brings a treasure, the Shichiseiken (七星剣), and believes that this can whet Toutaku's appetite, and be allowed an audience with him.

Sousou presents the Shichiseiken to Toutaku, who is very pleased with it, and wants Sousou to bring it to him. Sousou takes this chance to draw the Shichiseiken on Toutaku, only to be interfered by Ryofu. The two have a fierce battle outside, and Ryofu comments that Sousou is the one he's been seeking. The two continue to battle, until they both use their finishing techniques which clashed. In the resulting smokescreen, Sousou retreats, and Ryofu is satisfied.

He is soon interrupted by word that Toutaku forces has attacked the campsite.

Kayuu Zanneck is the one attacking the campsite, and makes short work on some of the Infantry GMs. He then approaches Enshou and Enjyutsu, to which Enjyutsu ran off, leaving Enshou to face Kayuu. Ryuubi steps in to protect Enshou, and thus, a battle soon begins. Kayuu is overwhelmed by the sworn brothers' finishing techniques, but still manages to make his escape. The sworn brothers give chase, but Kayuu soon arrives at the Koroukan (虎牢関), an impenetrable fortress that leads into the capital Rakuyou.

At this point, Sonshoukou arrives, much to the dismay of Sonken Zephyranthes, Sonken, Sonsaku and Kougai. She wants to be accomplished in battle as well, and begins to show her finishing technique. Though she was initially skillful at it, it soon turned disastrous.

Not long after, the Son army begins their attack on the Koroukan, as Sousou watches on behind. From atop the Koroukan, Kayuu notices that the advancing force is not Ryuubi, and rushes into battle, thinking he will win. He notices Sonshoukou, and decides to take care of her first. Sonshoukou counters, but is easily overpowered. Before Kayuu can finish her off, Sonken rushes in to protect her, although visibly shaking under Kayuu's strength. Sonken Zephyranthes calls Kougai to bring in his blade, the Koteitou (虎錠刀), and proceeds to finish off Kayuu with his finishing technique. With the battle won, Sonshoukou thanks Sonken, and Sonsaku praises him for his effort. Kougai comments that one day, Sonken will succeed the Koteitou.

Sousou seems to have an advantage when Chou-sen steps in with her butterflies illusion. Ryofu takes this chance to overpower Sousou.

Riju Shokew, Toutaku's strategist comments that with the gathering of various heroes in the Alliance, Ryofu might be overpowered eventually. This leads to Toutaku commenting that it's Riju's job to make sure Ryofu doesn't fall. At the Koroukan, Ryofu stands guard as Chou-sen comments on Toutaku again. Ryofu gives the same reply, saying that all he doesn't care about Toutaku, all he cares about are battles.

However, Ryuubi comments that Ryofu's justice is false, and summons the Trinity form. He overpowers Ryofu, who is shocked at Ryuubi's strength being able to force him to his knees. Before Ryuubi can deal the finishing blow, Chouryou interferes, along with Chou-sen. The Koroukan has fallen under Sousou's and Sonken Zephyranthes' forces while Ryofu is distracted.

They are to retreat to the Biujiyou (郿宇城) at Chouan (長安), and to set Rakuyou ablaze for the Alliance. Jyokou is strongly against this plan, thinking about the citizens, but Toutaku cares not of the citizens. Chou-sen comments on how both Toutaku and Riju seems to be possessed.

Bakuoki returns, informing Koumei that the Gyokuji in Toutaku's possession is the source of the darkness. However he is caught by two of Toutaku's guards.

As the Son army witnesses the capital in flames, Shuuyu Hyakushiki spots Toutaku escaping in his chariot. Sonken Zephyranthes orders his army to chase after Toutaku, and to regain the Gyokuji. As the troops leave, Shuuyu requests Enjyutsu and his troops for rear support, and leaves. However, Enjyutsu grows paranoid, thinking that if Sonken Zephyranthes defeats Toutaku, the Gyokuji will be in his hands, and become ruler of Mirisha. Enjyutsu doesn't want that to happen, and orders his general, Kirei Hamma Hamma, to attack the Son army. As Sonken Zephyranthes catches up with Toutaku, he orders Ryofu to take care of the Tiger of Koutou, to redeem his honour.

At the Son army's rear, Kirei catches up, and labels them as traitors. Sonsaku is enraged at that comment, while Kirei continues to say that only Enjyutsu is worthy of the Gyokuji. A battle ensues, and Sonken Zephyranthes notices Enjyutsu's betrayal and rushes back, only to be stopped by an advancing Ryofu. Ryofu attacks, but Sonken Zephyranthes manages to block his attack, though he is visibly injured. Sonken Zephyranthes continues to fight in his injured state, but he is no match for Ryofu, who then swiftly finishes off Sonken Zephyranthes and leaves.

The four decide to join up with the Son army to back them up. At the main gate to Rakuyou, the four are stopped by Chou-un Gundam, an officer under Enshou. Enshou has barred anyone from supporting the Son army's chase. Angered by this, Ryuubi draws his sword, to which Chou-un draws his spear. They both discuss how a soldier should follow a commander's orders and how one should always support their allies. Kousonsan steps in and agrees with Ryuubi's point of supporting one's allies. At this point, Chou-un succumbs, but he will personally escort them.

At this point, Enshou arrives, and brands Kousonsan and the sworn brothers as traitors for going after the Gyokuji. Chou-un steps in to speak up for the four, but is threatened to be labelled as a traitor as well by Enshou. Seeing that Enshou's greed for the Gyokuji has blinded his judgement, Chou-un decides to rebel against Enshou, successfully countering Enshou's troops. Seeing this, Enshou retreats, vowing revenge for this betrayal. Chou-un then decides to join Kousonsan's army, as the five set forth to the Biujiyou in Chouan.

Kousonsan decides to take a rest before crossing a river, and announces that they will begin their attack at dawn the next day, where they will rendezvous with Sousou's and Sonsaku's armies. Ryuubi decides to take this chance to fish for food. At the riverside, Ryuubi meets Koumei, and finds out that the fish are not biting. Koumei comments that perhaps a large fish has eaten the smaller fish, and Ryuubi states that if he catches that fish, the river will be at peace again. Koumei asks what if about large fish invades, and Ryuubi states he will catch that too. Koumei laughs. When Chouhi searches for Ryuubi, Koumei mysteriously disappears. Night falls, and the three factions prepare for the coming final battle, each having a common goal to defeat Toutaku, which results in the Gyokuji glowing brightly with a pure light.

Dawn arrives, and the three factions rendezvous with each other, and prepare to attack. Ryofu also prepares to move out, and is accompanied by Chou-sen, Chouryou, Chinkyuu and Koushun. At the Biujiyou, Riju prepares the ballistic arrow cannons. Jyokou pleads with Toutaku to not fire those cannons, as it will also harm Ryofu and his army. Toutaku cares not of Ryofu, and proceeds to throw Jyokou overboard.

Sonken rushes in to protect Sonshoukou, while the other generals watched in disbelief. Kan-u comments on how tyrannical Toutaku is to injure his own troops, just as Ryofu is hit. The arrow volley continues and more are killed. When the volley stops, the battlefield is filled with corpses from both sides. Ryofu still stands, and pulls out the arrows on his back, demanding to finish the battle with the heroes.

Toutaku comments on how Ryofu has served him well up till now, but it's time for him to be wiped out with the Alliance. Toutaku aims, and fires his shoulder cannons. Chou-sen and Chouryou rush in to protect Ryofu, but are hit squared on. As the two faint, Ryofu is enraged at Toutaku. The Gyokuji begins to glow, and flies out of Toutaku's hands, signalling the arrival of the Tengyokuyai. Shiba-i marvels at the sight, contemplating on which form the Tengyokuyai will take. Ryofu appears in front of Toutaku, and grabs the Gyokuji, summoning the Tengyokuyai in Shinbu (真武) form. Shiba-i is taken back by this turn of events, as Ryofu rushes in, finishing Toutaku off once and for all. The Tengyokuyai also proceeds to decimate the Biujiyou, killing Riju as well.

When the dust settles, a huge crater sits where the Biujiyou used to be, and the Tengyokuyai has disappeared, along with Ryofu. The heroes celebrate their victory as peace is finally restored.

However, Jyokou, now serving under Sousou, disagrees, saying that such power is too dangerous. Shiba-i leaves the council, and meets with his disciple Kakuka Virsago. Kakuka does not believe in Shiba-i's view that Sousou is a successor that can summon the Tengyokuyai. However, Shiba-i rebutes that the three forms of the Tengyokuyai, the Souryuu, Enhou, and Douko, each represents a successor, to which Ryofu's summoned form isn't. Their discussion was cut short by an attack.

A wall was blown straight off, and the attacker is Ryofu, who claims he's a God of Hell, and proceeds to duel with Sousou. Initially, they are evenly matched, until they unleashed their finishing techniques. Ryofu managed to damage Sousou, much to Sousou's surprise.

Sonshoukou steps in, to which the Pirates shrug off. When the rest of the Son Army steps in, they fled. Rikuson thanks Sonshoukou, to which she asks where his parents are.

Kirei proposes that they send out their naval fleet, the greatest in all of Mirisha, to take out Sonsaku. When Kirei leaves, Enjyutsu proclaims that only he is allowed to be Emperor, to which the Gyokuji glows with a dark aura again.

Shuuyu calls for a retreat, much to the dismay of Sonsaku, and the Son Army retreated into a nearby bamboo forest.

Kirei soon gives chase into the forest, only to be soon overwhelmed by the smoke of burning bamboo, a stratagem of Shuuyu to disadvantage Kirei's overwhelming numbers, which Rikuson and Sonshoukou are in charge of. Blinded and choking on the smoke, Kirei leads his troops back to their warships, only to see that Sonsaku and the Son Army have already commandeered all of them. Thinking of retreating back into the bamboo forest, Kirei is stopped by Taishiji, who has brought along warriors that resemble the Koutou Marines. Kirei manages to escape, and Taishiji finally accepts Sonsaku's invite.

Kirei pledges mercy with information about Ryuubi, and how he's plowing the land with the villagers in Joshuu. Enjyutsu thinks that Joshuu is easy pickings, and decides to personally head the his army to invade. The Gyokuji glows with a dark aura again, as Enjyutsu instructs Ryofu to join. Through a flashback, it is revealed that after the destruction of the Biujiyou, Enjyutsu saw a light streaking across the sky. He found the source to be Gyokuji, and grabs it, only to be grabbed by Ryofu. Enjyutsu is stunned, but Ryofu gives the Gyokuji to him, in exchange for more battles.

Over at Joshuu, Ryuubi, Kan-u and Chouhi are tilling the land with the fellow villagers, though Chouhi seems to be complaining about how he's going to get rusty at battles. They all decided to take a break, but Chouhi wanted to finish up first. The other two left with the villagers, and Chouhi finishes his proud plot of land, only to be ruined by Kirei jumping in. Chouhi is shocked to see Enjyutsu and his army, and easily repels off Kirei. Just as he is on his way to take Enjyutsu's head, Ryofu steps in. Shocked to see Ryofu alive, Chouhi hesitates. Ryofu claims to be a God from Hell, and unleashed his new finishing technique. The episode ends with Chouhi looking on in fear. 
20 "Joshuu Falls"
"Joshuu Kanraku" (徐州陷落) 
August 14, 2010

The episode carries on from the previous episode, with Chouhi facing off against Ryofu's fearsome attack. Chouhi only barely manages to block it, and is blown away by the attack's sheer power. Ryofu walks off, and Enjyutsu instructs his army to advance and invade Joshuu, with Chouhi struggling to get up. Over at Joshuu, Ryuubi and Kan-u are preparing some food for the late Chouhi, only to be attacked by a shower of burning arrows. Ryuubi is enraged at the peace being broken, and swears to defeat the invaders. Ryuubi and Kan-u managed to retreat most of the villagers to the main Governor's house, just as Enjyutsu's troops break in. The two are enraged at Enjyutsu's actions, and manages to repel the troops off. However, Ryuubi spots smoke from a neighbouring village, and the villagers fear the worst. Just then, Chouhi breaks through, calling them to retreat out of Joshuu. Ryuubi argues that they should be defending the village, but Chouhi retorts saying that the sheer number of troops have the advantage.

With reluctance, Ryuubi and Kan-u lead the villagers out of Joshuu, and mention that they can take refugee over at Yuushu. However, the villagers are tired from the running, and Enjyutsu catches up with them. The sworn brothers prepare for their last stand, just as Sousou arrives to intercept Enjyutsu. Enjyutsu pulls out the Gyokuji and tries to summon the Tengyokuyai, but fails. He then retreats, having won Joshuu. Sousou reprimands Ryuubi's naiveness of peace, and that Ryuubi is the one responsible for the fall of Joshuu, as well as the loss of the villagers' peace and happiness. Ryuubi falls to his knees, and the episode ends with Sousou asking Ryuubi to join him. 
21 "Decision of Ryuubi"
"Ryuubi no Sentaku" (劉備の選択) 
August 21, 2010

At a temporal resting place, Ryuubi is tending to the Joshuu refugees, when Sousou approaches him about his proposal. In the previous episode, Sousou wanted Ryuubi to serve him to help unify Mirisha. Sousou proceeds to say that the refugees can stay in Kyoshou, and even let Chouhi and Kan-u become his generals, but with one condition: That Ryuubi forsakes his love for the people. Sousou believes that sympathy is not needed to unify Mirish, only through force can peace be totally achieved. Ryuubi strongly disagrees, but hestitates to reply. Soon after, all of them arrived at Kyoshou. The refugees comment on how there's a large marketplace, and patrols on the city walls. Upon hearing this, Ryuubi feels that Sousou may be right after all. Just then, a kid Bachou Blue Destiny appears, recognising Ryuubi.

It is revealed that Bachou was in Chouhi's village back in episode 2, and is currently travelling around Mirisha. He knows of Ryuubi being the Governor of Joshuu, but Ryuubi corrects him saying that he is the one responsible for Joshuu's fall to Enjyutsu. Kan-u and Chouhi disagrees, but Ryuubi decides to adhere to Sousou's condition. At the Kyoshou Castle, Ryuubi meets Ten-i Asshimar, who serves Sousou with adoration. Ten-i praises Ryuubi for his talents, and lets him into Sousou's chamber (It is of note that Teiiku Wise Wallaby is in the chamber as well). Just as Ryuubi is going to say his decision, Kan-u, Chouhi, Bachou and the refugees barge in, saying that they love Ryuubi as he is, and forsaking that love is not within his character. Touched, Ryuubi declines Sousou's offer. Shiba-i suggests to dispose of them, but Sousou has other plans. 
22 "Castle of Betrayal"
"Uragiri no Shiro" (裏切りの城) 
August 28, 2010

The episode begins with Ten-i explaining to the sworn brothers about Choushuu Britova, the Governor of En (宛). Choushuu joined Sousou's army out of admiration, and shares the same goal with Sousou, that is to unify Mirisha through force. Choushuu has invited Sousou to En for the completion of the En Castle, and Sousou invited the sworn brothers, to let them understand that there are other warlords that share his vision. As they depart, Ten-i continues to praise highly of Sousou, how Sousou let a lowly bandit like himself serve him, and that it's his will to carry out Sousou's vision. They all arrive at En, and are welcomed by Choushuu, and his strategist, Kaku Ashtaron. Sousou, Ryuubi and Ten-i proceed to the main chamber, while Kan-u and Chouhi are led to another room for refreshments.

At the main chamber, Choushuu says how he has always admired Sousou and his vision, however, someone else has his complete admiration now: Enjyutsu. Choushuu and Kaku jumped away, and Kaku springs a cage trap on Sousou, Ryuubi and Ten-i. The three can't escape as their weapons are given to the servants for safe-keeping earlier. Kirei springs out from a turnabout wall, and gloats at Sousou falling for their trap. Kaku then releases a falling ceiling, to which Ten-i uses his strength to hold the ceiling up. Kaku releases some rocks to increase the burden. In the other room, Kan-u hears some noise and finds something amiss, and rushes out. Chouhi joins in, and barges into the main chamber. Kan-u frees Ryuubi and Sousou, just before Ten-i gets crushed. Seeing the trap fail, Kirei, Choushuu and Kaku escape. In his final words, Ten-i asks if Sousou is unharmed, and upon seeing so, dies. Sousou wants to return to Kyoshou to lead his army and chase after Choushuu, to which Ryuubi asks if he does not feel sympathy for Ten-i's sacrifice. Sousou does not, and Ryuubi swears to never serve Sousou. Back at Kyoshou, the sworn brothers decide to continue their journey around Mirisha, and Sousou labels them as enemies.

The three sworn brothers have arrived at Gyou (鄴), the capital of Kishuu (冀州). Ryuubi wants to meet Enshou, and inform him of Enjyutsu's recent deeds. They admire at how grand Gyou is, until they are halted by Ganryou Gazu-L and Bunshuu Gazu-R, guardians of Gyou. Ganryou and Bunshuu labels the three sworn brothers as suspicious characters, causing Kan-u and Chouhi to want to duel. Enshou arrives to stop them. Over at the Gyou Castle, Ryuubi informs Enshou of Enjyutsu's invasion of Joshuu, as well as all his evil deeds after proclaiming himself as Emperor, and begs Enshou to stop him. However, Enshou has severed all ties with his brother, stating that Enjyutsu is none of his concerns, and that what he's doing is natural in times of war. The three sworn brothers leave, as Denpou Galus J and Soju R-Jarja informs Enshou of Sousou's and Sonsaku's plans to attack Enjyutsu. Enshou gloats that after Sousou and Sonsaku are done with Enjyutsu, the Gyokuji will be his for the taking.

Outside Gyou, the 3 sworn brothers ponder about their next move, when Ryuubi bumps into Koumei. After some words of wisdom about losing the will to fish, Ryuubi realises that he has not lost his will to bring peace for the people.

September 11, 2010

The episode recaps on how the 3 sworn brothers, Sousou, and Sonsaku intend to end Enjyutsu's tyranny, and attack Jushun. Sonsaku and his army are the first to arrive. Shuuyu has planned a stratagem: To attack the Jushun Castle front gate with the main force, but to breach in from the rear gate. Sonsaku volunteers for the rear attack. Sonken is in awe of Sonsaku's courage, but Sonsaku consoles Sonken, saying that he draws courage from compassion and love for the people. The attack begins, with Shuuyu leading the main force, and Choushuu is alarmed. However, Kaku calms him down, saying he has seen through the attack, and has prepared a counter-stratagem.

Rikuson is pleased that the stratagem is working, but Shuuyu feels that something is amiss. When lights are shone on the castle walls, it is revealed that straw dolls were firing at them, and Shuuyu fears for Sonsaku's safety. Over at the rear gate, Sonsaku is within reach of the rear gate, when he is attacked by archers under Kirei. Sonsaku easily deflects the arrows, and lures Kirei into fighting him one-on-one. Sonsaku easily overpowers Kirei, and as he struggles to counterattack, Sonsaku picks up Kirei's weapon, and stabs him, finally killing Kirei, and avenging Sonken Zephyranthes. Shuuyu arrives in time to cover Sonsaku's back, commenting on how he knew Sonsaku is going to defeat Kirei alone for the very beginning. The episode ends with Sonsaku pointing the Kouteitou at Enjyutsu, and declaring to take his head.

"Saraba! Sonsaku" (さらば!孫策) 
September 18, 2010

The episode starts with a recap of the previous episode. Enjyutsu is in a panic at Kirei's death, and orders Ryofu to dispose of Sonsaku and his army. As the rear gate is breached, Kaku informs Choushuu that it's time to jump ship. Shocked at Kaku's betrayal, Kaku mentions that Enjyutsu will soon taste defeat, and the 2 of them have much to accomplish. The 2 thus escape into the night. As Sonsaku leads his army inward, they get intercepted by Ryofu's finishing technique, to which all but Sonsaku are badly injured. Sonsaku and Ryofu then duel it out.

It's morning, as Sousou receives word that Sonsaku's ais are already at Jushun. Shiba-i comments that Sonsaku is incapable of defeating Ryofu, to which Sousou agrees, and hastens his advance. The 3 sworn brothers are also rushing over, hoping to get there in time. The duel rages on, but Ryofu has the upper hand, after making Sonsaku lose his grip on the Koteitou. Sonsaku carries on fighting, much to Ryofu's surprise. As Sonken rushes to bring the Koteitou to Sonsaku, Sonsaku is struck down with a fatal blow defending Sonken. Sonsaku then prepares for an ultimate attack, passed down from Sonken Zephyranthes, and manages to destroy half of Ryofu's mask, but couldn't follow through, as Ryofu stabs right though him. Sonken rushes in to challenge Ryofu, to which Ryofu turned, and walked away, saying he has won. As Sonken grieves, Sonsaku says that Sonken will be the one to heal the people of Mirisha with his compassion, and dies in Sonken's hands. The episode ends with a very determined Sonken, eyes aglow. 
26 "Courage of Truth"
"Makoto no Yuuki" (真(まこと)の勇気) 
September 25, 2010

Sousou and the 3 sworn brothers have arrived in Jushun, but were too late to help Sonsaku. Enjyutsu gloats, and sends his army to intercept them all. The 2 factions easily defeats Enjyutsu's army, and storms the castle. In his throne room, Enjyutsu gloats that with Ryofu, they will not reach him easily. His monologue is cut short with Sousou, Kakouton, Kakouen and the 3 sworn brothers barged in. It seems Ryofu and his team have abandoned him, and Enjyutsu is in a total panic. He tries to summon the Tengyokugai, but fails miserably. As the allied forces rush in to finish Enjyutsu off, the Gyokuji glowed with darkness, and formed a forcefield around Enjyutsu. Enjyutsu gloats, and summons the dark power, which destroys the castle, flinging out the heroes.

As the dust settles, Enjyutsu dons a new armor, the Hishou Keitai (飛翔形態), granted from the darkness within the Gyokuji. He flies over the battlefield, and gloats at his new power as he indiscriminately attacks. Sonshoukou retaliates, but is easily overpowered. Sonken rushes in to check on her, as Enjyutsu tries a sneak attack. As Enjyutsu continues to gloat of his invincibility, and badmouths Sonken Zephyranthes and Sonsaku, Sonken swears to never forgive Enjyutsu and his tyranny, to which the Gyokuji responds with a golden light. With his courage, Sonken has summoned the Tengyokugai in Douko (弩虎) form, and easily overpowers Enjyustu, and destroys whatever was left of Jushun. As the Gyokuji and the Tengyokugai fly off to parts unknown, Sonken is shocked at the destruction he has caused.

It's nightfall at Kishuu, Enshou is enjoying some wine when his guard informs him that Enjyustu is currently at the castle gate, requesting an audience with him. Enshou replies that he knows no such person, and orders to turn him away. Enshou comments that he has no need for a fool who doesn't have the Gyokuji. As the castle gates close, Enjyutsu begs to see his brother. Being turned down, Enjyutsu walks away in the rain, all tattered, limping and coughing. He trips over a puddle and smashes his favourite honey jar. On his final breath, Enjyutsu wishes he could taste his favourite honey again, and dies soon after.

October 2, 2010

Koutou is currently in peace, with the Son family back. Rikuson and Sonshoukou are gathering some fruits for the villagers, as Rikuson enjoys the peace thanks to Sonsaku's efforts, to which Sonshoukou grew teary-eyed. The peace was interrupted when Ryomou Dijeh and Kannei Kampfer, on their jet-skis, terrorised the villages by splashing water on the villages, an capsizing a boat with a village in it. Sonshoukou swears to defeat them. Over at the castle, Sonken, Shuuyu, Taishiji and Kougai are discussing on the suppression of Ryomou and Kannei. Due to their high maneuverability in the water, the pirates led by Ryomou and Kannei are hard to suppress. Sonken half-hearted agrees on Shuuyu's plan, and walks away, worrying Kougai. Outside, Sonken recalls Sonsaku's last words, and is depressed in being unable to fulfill them.

Sonshoukou had dragged Rikuson along to search for the pirate's base, without anyone knowing. Upon reaching an empty campsite believed to be the base, the 2 were ambushed by Ryomou, Kannei and the would-be Koutou Marines. Back at Koutou, Kougai comes across Sonshoukou's letter of her departure, and alerts Shuuyu and Taishiji. Sonken soon arrives, and becomes aware of Sonshoukou's rashness. When Shuuyu suggests Taishiji to rally up his strongest warriors, Sonken interjects, and wants to go alone to save Sonshoukou.

October 9, 2010

The episode begins with a recap of what happened in the previous episode. As Sonken leaves for the pirate base, Kougai rushes out with the Koteitou, commenting that whenever a Lord of Koutou leaves for battle, he must bring along the Koteitou. As Sonken leaves, Taishiji questions if they should provide backup, to which Shuuyu declines, saying this is a fight that Sonken must overcme himself. At the pirate's base, the pirates are enjoying themselves, while Sonshoukou and Rikuson struggle to get free. As the pirates laughed at their fruitless attempts, Sonken arrives and saves Sonshoukou. Sonken duels Ryomou, while Sonshoukou frees Rikuson.

Though Sonken manages to deflect Ryomou's attacks, Ryomou laughs at Sonken's unpolished skills. When Kannei interjects with his finishing technique, Sonken deflects it easier, shocking both Ryomou and Kannei. Sonshoukou questions why they keep harassing the people of Koutou, to which she got a shocking answer: The pirates wanted to serve under Sonsaku, who has a strong tiger spirit of a hero. Upon hearing this, Sonken lowers the Koteitou, saying he will welcome them as family. Ryomou feels insulted and scratches Sonken's armour, to which Sonken stresses that a Lord of Koutou does not harm his family. A tiger aura appears around Sonken, which finally tames the pirates. Back at Koutou, with the pirates recruited into the Son Army, Sonken contemplates about his courage, and looks ahead to the future.

In the background, the Gyouji glows with an omnious aura inside Enjyustu's Hishou Keitai armour. However, Enshou fears the Hakuba Jin, to which Soju and Denpou have a plan to counter it. Outside, Choukou Zaku III is training his platoon for the coming battle, and Denpou orders Choukou to lead his platoon into the frontlines, to which Choukou proudly accepts. Somewhere else, the 3 sworn brothers are leading the Yuushu villagers to Ekikyourou (易京楼), a fortress within mountains. Kousonsan believes the villagers will be well-protected against Enshou's army. Chou-un and his White Stallion platoon is seen outside, ready to launch a frontal attack on Enshou's army on Kousonsan's orders. The 3 sworn brothers stay behind to better defend Ekikyourou as Kousonsan leaves.

At the border of Keishuu, Ryuubi and Chouhi encounters Koumei, and asks him if he knew where Fukuryuu is. A bit shocked at the request, Koumei points at that Suikyou Guntank might know, and gives the 2 directions to Suikyou's residence. The 2 soon arrive, and is invited in by Suikyou. Upon asking why the 2 needs his help, Ryuubi relates how Enshou's troops is threatening the peace and wants to stop him before innocent lives are lost, and thus require Fukuryuu's assistance. However, Suikyou says that Fukuryuu once used his stratagems to fight against Toutaku, but he lost many of his men, and has thus "died" from grief. Depressed, Ryuubi and Chouhi leaves. As Suikyou watch the 2 leave, Koumei steps out from hiding, and Suikyou asks if this was for the best. Koumei says it has nothing to do with him, to which Suikyou questions that comment.

At Kyoshou, Kan-u comments on how Kyoshou has grown in size, with improved border defenses and larger population. He gets an audience with Sousou and his generals, to which Sousou already knows of Kan-u's purpose here: To enlist his help against Enshou. Kakouton and Kakouen strongly objects, saying Kyoshou might be attacked at any time as well, to which Kan-u mentions that Kousonsan will repay the help with all he can. Shiba-i mentions Yuushu has no monetary gain, but Sousou retorts, saying all he needs is to amass more warriors to his cause. Kan-u thus pledges his strength to Sousou, to which Kakuka wants a demonstration. He brings out a mountain bandit, Shuusou Dovenwolf, and says if he can defeat Kan-u, he is pardoned. Shuusou accepts, but can't land a single blow on Kan-u, who gracefully dodges every hit. Kan-u's overwhelming spirit allows him to easily overpower Shuusou with only one finger, impressing everyone.

Ryuubi and Chouhi are still in Keishuu, hoping to find more clues to find Fukuryuu, as Ryuubi cannot believe that Fukuryuu has died. Suikyou appears, and aaks why the 2 aren't making their way back to Yuushu. After Ryuubi explains, Suikyou cautions them that the strength of Enshou is not from his million troops, but of his 2 strategists, Denpou and Soja. Fearing Kousonsan's safety, Ryuubi and Chouhi rushes back to Yuushu. Koumei steps out from hiding again, to which Suikyou jokes that Koumei should just go back with them. However, Koumei reiterates that Fukuryuu is no more.

Back at Ekikyourou, Kousonsan, Chou-un and the Yuushu archers managed to repel each wave of Enshou troops. At the Enshou camp, Enshou is infuriated at not making any headway into Ekikyourou. Soju replies that he has the perfect plan. Soju relays up the remaining Ugan troops, and threatens to kill them for their incompetence. However, if they can stack up sandbags at Ekikyourou's wall, they are spared. Denpou comments on how sly Soju is, and that after the plan is a success, Ryofu's Team will clean up the mess. The Ugan begin their attack, to which Chou-un finally understand that it was Enshou all along backing the Ugan.

At Ekikyourou, Kousonsan decides to surrender for the sake of the villagers, and hands over Fukuryuu's scroll to Chou-un, saying that the scroll can never fall into Enshou's hands. He also gives Chou-un another spear, to which Chou-un combines to form the Muzougeki Arashi (武双戟・嵐). Kousonsan then orders Chou-un to find Ryuubi. With tears, Chou-un rushes off.

Kousonsan receives word that Chouryou is requesting his presence. Kousonsan and Chouryou meet, each agreeing that surrendering is the best option, with Chouryou respecting Kousonsan's love for his villagers. They both meet up with Enshou, who accepts Kousonsan's surrender, but orders an arrow shower upon Ekikyourou. Shocked at Enshou's actions, Kousonsan blames Chouryou, to which Chouryou denies, as Enshou deceived him as well. As Kousonsan prepares to attack Chouryou, he is impaled with several arrows, and dies, falling onto his knees. Enshou then orders a fire arrow shower, to burn down Ekikyourou. It's nightfall when Ryuubi and Chouhi meet up with Chou-un. Ryuubi fears Kousonsan's safety, and Chouhi notices a red hue in the sky. The 3 arrive at a cliff overlooking Ekikyourou, to see it in flames. Ryuubi notices Kousonsan, kneeling in front of Ekikyourou, just as explosions rip through the fortress.

Chou-un reminds Ryuubi of the million troops Enshou has, to which Ryuubi stands firm in his decision.

Kan-u manages to repel most of the traps, but is caught when he nearly falls into a spike pit, with an arrow shower aimed at him.

He then remembers the Gyokuji, and comments that this is the time to use it and with it, he will be granted unlimited power needed to defeat all that oppose him. Denpou objects to the idea, fearing that Enshou will be possessed by the Gyokuji, and suffer the same fate as Enjyutsu. Enshou retorts that he's not as weak as his brother, and that the only way is to test it. He proclaims himself Emperor, and touches the Gyokuji, resulting in a huge explosion of dark energy that kills Denpou in the blast.

However, Sousou survives, and his strong sense to acquire new strength for justice causes the Gyokuji to glow, thus summoning forth the Tengyokugai in Enhou (炎鳳) form.

Enshou is shocked at the development, as Sousou declares that Enshou will be the downfall of Mirisha, and that he will be the one to bring justice back.

Sonken comments that he'll do anything to protect his family, and Ryuubi comment that it's Heaven's will to help the people. The 2's conviction impresses Sousou, but he will not let the 2 interfere in his ambition. Just then, the Gyokuji glows and leaves Sousou, bathing Ryuubi and Sonken in its golden light. Shiba-i and Kakuka rushes to the deck of the battleship, and witnesses Sonken in Tengyokugai Douko form, and Ryuubi in Tengyokugai Souryuu (蒼龍) form.

The three clash with all their strength, and at the final blow, a huge star (one would recognize it as the star of Ryuubi's Dragon Star Slash) forms over Mirisha. Sousou is appalled, appalled that he has lost to Sonken and Ryuubi's strength, a strength that comes from compassion for the people. As the Tengyokugai disintegrates around him, Sousou comments that their duel is not over, and that a new era has begun on this day, a day where Mirisha is ruled by compassion. As Sousou's Tengyokugai explodes, he plummets through the atmosphere, and seemingly explodes into millions of meteors that streak across Mirisha's night sky. His Seihouken lands back on the ground, as Kakouton fears the worst. Chouryou drops his weapons, and wants Kan-u to kill him; however, Kan-u tells him to live on.

The Gyokuji drifts off into the depths of space, as some time has passed on Mirisha. At Rakuyou, Souhi Gundam asks Shiba-i if Sousou has been found. Shiba-i, now as Giga Taifu (機駕太傅), updates him that the search is still ongoing. Souhi thanks Shiba-i, and Sousou for helping him to find, and build his kingdom. In front of his troops, Souhi gives a speech, to remember the events of Sekiheki, and that with the formation of their kingdom, Giga (機駕), they will carry on Sousou's will. At Koutou, the Son family pays respect to Sonken Zephyranthes, Sonsaku and all the fallen troops. Sonshoukou informs them of the formation of their kingdom, Gou (轟). Sonken swears that he will do everything to protect their kingdom and family. Shuuyu is relieved, and comments on joining Sonsaku, and he soon dies peacefully in his chair. At Ekishuu (益州), Ryuubi and his faction are almost at their destination, when Chouhi complains of tiredness. Chou-un is glad of Ryuubi's safe return, as it is a boost to the people's moral and trust. As Ryuubi thanks them, Koumei signals to them that they have arrived.

The story begins with the 3 sworn brothers being chased by some Toutaku troops. Forced to a cliff, the 3 engaged the troops, easily overpowering them with their finishing techniques. Just then, on a bridge at the cliff, Koshin Gyan taunts the 3, with Chouhi falling into Koshin's trap. Koshin leaps out of the way, and destroys the bridge, causing the 3 sworn brothers to fall into the river below. Back at Rakuyou, Koshin reports back to Toutaku on his victory, but Toutaku is infuriated that Koshin failed to obtain the Ryuuteiken from Ryuubi. Koshin stakes his life and his title of Chinkou Shougun (鎮江将軍) to steal the Ryuuteiken.

Ryuubi wakes up from the incident, after he dreamt of a dragon spirit in the river swallowing him. The 3 sworn brothers were saved by Bachou Blue Destiny, who found them washed up by the river. Ryuubi thanks Bachou, just as a villager bears news of an invasion. Ryuubi suspects it's more of Toutaku's troops, and the 3 rushes off to intercept them but Ryuubi notices he has lost the Ryuuteiken. Bachou tries to stop Ryuubi, but Ryuubi insists that he will help shape Mirisha's future with his own hands, even without the Ryuuteiken. The Toutaku troops are led by Koshin, and is pleased to see the 3 sworn brothers. The troops are again overpowered, but Koshin overpowers the 3 with another finishing technique.

Bachou just cannot stand by and watch, and rushes back to the river to find the Ryuuteiken. He dives near the foot of a waterfall that's known to contain a dragon spirit. He soon encounters the spirit, to which it asks what is Bachou's purpose. Back at the duel, Ryuubi stands up against Koshin, and in unison with Bachou, proclaims to help Mirisha. The Ryuuteiken appears before Ryuubi's feet; Bachou found it thanks to the dragon spirit. Bachou and the village children cheers the 3 sworn brothers on (Bachou even asks the viewers to join in the cheering), and soon, Kan-u and Chouhi stands up again, and the 3 performs the Holy Trinity. Koshin is then destroyed. On a cliff, Ryofu, atop Sekitoba, comments on how he's have fun with the successor of the Ryuuteiken.
