Cyclone's grave
Cyclone's grave

Young Hime watches and narrates a cartoon show about a hero who she loved, Popman. After that flashback, Himeko confronts a thug for stealing someone's wallet and calls him a jerk several times prompting him to attack her. However, she deflects his wooden sword and scares him off with her terrifying look after he leaves the wallet behind. Himeko returns the wallet to its rightful owner who graciously thanks her for her help. Immediately, Bossun cleans Hime's face with his rag while Switch hands her a Pelocan lollipop. Switch points to Hime's broken Cyclone, a field hockey stick. Later that night, a burial site is viewed. (Presumed to be Cyclone's grave) In the morning, Bossun and Switch follow Hime for no reason. Hime tells them that she's buying a new hockey stick and if Bossun and Switch act weird, she will throw them out.

In the store, Hime sees a new manager and browses over the field hockey sticks. After she asks the manager for a field hockey stick that is similar to her Cyclone. She then asks Bossun and Switch to help her find the right replacement hockey stick. Bossun presents her with the Blast's Evil Spirit. Hime rejects the hockey stick because it's not cute. Swooping in, Switch presents Hime with Blast's Fancy Donki. However, Hime calls it blunt (Donki) even though it's cute. Bossun picks a broom because of how the names rhyme: Evil Spirit (kyouki), Blunt weapon (donki), and broom (houki). Hime swings a black hockey stick to test it out. She then states that it did not feel right. Bossun notices that manager did not compliment Hime for using the field hockey stick properly. Then, Bossun opens the locker room to find the real manager. Hime grabs a blue hockey stick (Fragrance is written on it) and beats the robber who ran outside. Bossun and Switch do their usual respects to Hime. The manager tells Hime that she can have a hockey stick on the house.

Hime blushes and chooses the hockey stick that she used to beat the robber. When Switch asks Hime about the new name for her new hockey stick, Bossun proposes "Bankai." Hime thought about how Cyclone was named from its product name, so Hime looks at the words, fragrance. She asks Switch what does "Blast" means. After Switch replies a strong wind, Hime calls it Kunpuumaru. In addition, Switch adds that fragrance also means vicious or having a notorious reputation. Bossun laughs at the double meaning, but Switch states that it's suitable for the Onihime. The group look at the playground which brings back memories. This is where Hime broke her first hockey stick three years ago.
