Full Plot Summary


Elie, Haru, and Plue are riding in their cart driven by dogs, a red dog, a black dog, and a gray dog. Haru introduces himself, and Elie makes a remark about her excitement to, "Get out of this town !" Then we see a Demon Card leader screaming at henchmen that Shuda was there and not to let the boy and girl with the weird dog get away. Haru tells Plue to turn when they see the Demon Card blockade. Haru, Plue, and Elie's cart goes into an alley and falls into a hole. In the hole, Haru, Elie, and Plue meet a new character named Hole.

At first, they make jokes and various comments about how they fell and why Plue was under Elie's butt.As they ponder, the ground starts to shake, and a body emerges from the ground dressed in what seemed to be a miners or diggers outfit. Haru makes the comment that he cannot tell if it is a boy or a girl, then Elie, with confidence, explains it is a mole because it is underground. The girls go back and forth with their little argument. The scene changes and we see two men,both different body types, talking about their dislike of the lookout location they were placed at. Haru is still confused about Hole's gender, so Hole takes off the helmet and shows mid-length long blonde hair, and Elie states it is a guy with long hair. Finally, Hole has to put Elie's hand against her breast to show her that she is a female, and, also, to convince Haru. Hole is a young lady who lets people escape from Hip Hop City with a fee. However, Hole allows Haru, Elie, and Plue to escape without paying because she wants to see the looks on the Demon Card when they notice the three escapes.

Meanwhile, Shuda tells his henchmen who was bullying a civilian to stop. They were bullying him because of their frustration with their mission, so they shook him harshly and made sure he didn't lie. They threaten to take his life. He says he knows where the Rave Master is.

In Hole's home, which is easy to access as you just crawl through a short narrow tunnel, leads to a wide open space with tall ceilings, and just enough furniture and equipment for living necessities. However, the mood becomes much more serious than it has in the entire episode as Haru explains why he must fight Demon Card to Hole. In a flashback, Haru, Shiba, and Cattleya are looking for survivors in destroyed town. Haru helps an old man who explains to Haru that his father left him 15 years ago to fight Demon Card. This is why Haru is also looking for the Rave stones. Also, Elie says that she is also looking for something, and Hole tells them that they have a long road ahead of them. Hole warns them about Shuda. At Shuda's ship, Shuda uses the computer to find the whereabouts of Haru's locations. As the Shuda's henchmen gets in the sewers, Hole notice that the enemies are coming. Hole and the others drill more passageways to escape while Shuda's forces are coming closer. Hole leaves them to create more holes to confuse Shuda's forces.

As Haru, Elie, and Plue reach the surface, they see Shuda and Shuda's forces holding Hole. Shuda states that Hole will suffer the consequences, and Haru challenges Shuda. Shuda talks about the famous Ten Commandments Sword. As Haru charges at Shuda, Shuda jumps over him and burns Haru's back. Haru cannot get Shuda's flames off. Shuda explains about his Dark Bring, Valsyar Flame. When Elie tries to help, her tonkas are empty, so Elie tries to throw Plue at Shuda. Unfortunately, Elie misses (Shuda dodges). Plue frees himself, and the falling sign board distracts Shuda. Suddenly, Haru takes advantage and breaks Shuda's Dark Bring. As Shuda laughs, he asks Haru's name. After realizing Haru's last name is the same as Gale Glory's last name, Shuda tells Haru, and he leaves Haru. Hole bids Haru and his friend goodbye. As Haru sheathes his sword, it cracks and breaks. Elie explains Haru can fix his sword at Punk Street due to a legendary blacksmith.

Haru tells Elie that he will help Elie with what she is looking for. Elie replies that it is impossible because Elie is looking for her memories and search for anyone who knows her.
