In Shinzo's story, Shinpei loses Shinzo's lucky shinai after having a fight with some delinquents. Much later, Shinpei is at the river where the Sket Dan spotted him. Switch is the first one to help Shinpei search for the shinai despite Shinpei refusing him. As a result, Hime and Bossun join in to help as well. The following day, Shinpei arrives to the tournament with the shinai. Shinzo explains that he has lost because he is weak, and Shinpei begs his brother for forgiveness. However, Shinzo refuses to blame Shinpei and challenges Shinpei to a duel. In the end, the two brothers gain closure.
