From the last volume, Yoh defeats Mohamed, Peyote, and Zang-Ching. Nichrom asks Yoh how he found him and his allies. Yoh tells his team that Ren lost his focus when he found out that Nichrom was Chrom's brother. Yoh thinks Ren has a heart when Ren's remorse rattled him. Nichrom asks Yoh if it was the traitor Silva, but Yoh tells Nichrom to leave. Even though Nicrome wants his allies to fight back, Hao's followers tells him to retreat due to Yoh's allies, Ryu and Faust, who appears and their mana level depleted. Faust explains to Horohoro that Ren has suffered from severe trauma to the arteries and the heart, and he cannot help Ren because Ren has expired in at state of severe shock. Faust confesses that he cannot overcome death again with tears streaming on his face. When Horohoro grabs Yoh, Yoh reassures Horohoro that Ren is not completely death due his soul is still there clinging to Ren's body. While Yoh explains that Jeanne's healing powers may revive Ren, Manta is at the X-Ark's docks.

When Pailong knocks out Ashcroft with his new move, Jun explains that Pailong has a new upgrade which uses a machine gun that is powered by a piston. As Tamao tells Anna that Jun and Pailong make a good couple, Anna corrects Tamao by stating that Pailong is a philanderer since he already had a wife and a kid. Also, Anna states that the armor is not the spirit medium.

Meanwhile at the X-Laws car, Manta asks Jeanne why she respond so quickly. Jeanne says that helping people is an important cause.

When Kanna tries to summon Ashcroft with new cigarettes, Mikihisa takes Kanna's cigarette and lectures her not to smoke if she wants to have children. Then Mikihisa goes and slaps Tamao and Jun because what they were trying to protect is gone. Specifically, he means that they fight for no reason. After Jun tells Mikihisa that their fight is not pointless since it is their objective to defeat Team Hana Gumi, Team Hana Gumi prepares to attack Mikihisa again. He stops the trio of girls without force but his mana. He pats Marion on the shoulder and lectures that power is everything and children are dangerous when they are naive and innocent.

When Tamao asks Mikihisa about the three girls, he replies that there is nothing to do.
