Full Plot Summary

Opening Theme

"Butterfly Kiss" by Chihiro Yonekura

"Rave-olution" by Reel Big Fish

Musica cannot crack the code while his allies, Griffon and Elie, think they can which Musica insane. When Plue points up, Haru falls down on Musica. Elie does first aid on Haru, but she wraps him like a mummy. When Musica knows that Lugas did this and doubts that they will die, Haru tells them they will survive. With a flashback of Shuda, Haru tells his group to find a way and never give up.

Elie finds a jet while Griffon finds some hamburgers. As Haru, Elie, Griffon gets in with his hamburgers, Musica makes Griffon get rid of the hamburgers in order to get out. Even though they sent the jet out, Musica has trouble landing as the jet falls down quickly. In the nick of time, Hebi and the Silver Rhythm airship stops the jet from falling. Haru still remembers Shuda's words because Shuda tells him to believe in his strength and his connections with Gale Glory.

Meanwhile at the castle, a lackey tells Reina that Shuda has been defeated by the Rave Master. Reina decides to make their debut as she heads outside to meet Jegan and his dragon. Jeagan ignores Reina and heads inside while Reina fusses over his lack of greeting and ignorance. When Reina ask that Jegan is more friendly with his dragon, Jegan immediately points his sword at her until Sieg Hart breaks up their fight. A mysterious man tells his three generals to take care of the Rave Master. As Sieg Hart ask Reina to take on that task, Reina argues that she is Demon Card's trump card. While Reina ask Sieg Hart if his task is about a girlfriend, the boss slams his sword. The boss picks Sieg Hart to take the task while Sieg obeys his order and thinks that he will get the King. When Reina asks Sieg Hart if he will hug the girl that he is looking for, Sieg Hart tells her that he will kill her.

At the casino, Elie, who has a pink pattern on her shirt, gambles with success. As she writes her name on a membership form, her name spells 3173. Haru talks to Plue about big this city compared to Garage Island, and Plue hands Haru a half eaten and broken lollipop. Elie appears and shows her membership card to Haru. Also, Elie tells Haru that Musica is losing at poker. At the restaurant, Elie, Haru, Griffon, and Plue feast, but Elie finds out she lost her membership card. The membership card shows 3173 when viewed upside down.
