Manta sees a strange boy wielding a spear and standing on the roof of a small building in the cemetery. He quickly realizes that the boy is a shaman just like Yoh. Later, he tells Yoh about his discovery, and the discovery does not seem very significant to the easygoing Yoh.
Manta meets the boy again on the crosswalk, but the boy says something cryptic and walks onto the street. Manta yells at him that the traffic signal is red, and a truck is speeding towards him. The boy looks at the truck, commenting how people are such cockroaches, and takes out his spear. The ghost of a Chinese warlord appears, and the boy cleaves the truck in two.
Yoh meets Ren in the middle of the street. The two exchanges some words, but Yoh misunderstands Ren and the trouble he'll bring. Manta follows Yoh when Yoh talks to Amidamaru about Ren and his spirit Bason.
Ryu with his gang stumbles into a cemetery and causes Ren to get angry. Ren defeats Ryu and gang and proceeds to kill Ryu. However, Yoh stops Ren and the two shamans duke it out. In the fight, Ren delivers a heavy blow on Yoh's shoulder. The episode ends on a cliffhanger.
