Intro Arc

This is the first meeting of Haru and Elie in this episode which begins their journey of many adventures in the series. This is also when we are first introduced to Plue, the Guardian of Haru. As well as Shiba, the first Rave Master form fifty years ago.

Plot Summary

A flashback reveals Shiba and Plue facing Mother Sinclair. While looking at Shiba, he looks very tired, exhausted, and even injured. He calls on Plue to power him up as well as the Ten Commandments Sword so he could finally complete his quest. After Shiba slashes Mother Sinclair (leaving a crack on it), the evil stone emits an overdrive.

Back to present, Haru Glory is searching for Plue, and we come up to a close up variety shots of a local casino. There, we see a young attractive girl who was on the verge of winning large amounts of money, when she rolled the dice, she kept whispering and praying for "Red 23" so she could win the big money.However, while Haru was searching for Plue in the casino, he didn't pay the necessary entry fee, so he had the security guards searching the casino looking for him. While crawling on the ground to find Plue and not get caught, Haru ends up with his head in between Elie's skirt . This causes Elie to react and call Haru, a pervert, (Dub: thief) also, it causes Haru to bang his head against the table which makes the ball in the roulette to land on the wrong number. Elie, furious with Haru, starts screaming at him and in complete shock attacks him, however the guards get to him first. However, Haru easily bounces off the wall and dodges their attacks. By then, Elie is fuming mad and asking all the rest of the gamblers if they saw that it was on Red 23 before Haru bumped his head on the table, then asks the official. He just shrugs at her with a sort of smirk on his face, but this really sets her off. She pulls out her ton fans quickly and efficiently and reveals that they let out powerful and destructive blasts or bullets of yellow energy. By the end of her rage, she basically destroyed the entire casino to just ruble.

Afterwards she stomps off to leave the town, but is stopped by Demon Card henchmen, so she quickly turns back around after the fright the encounter gave her. After that, the next shot we see is Elie sitting in the park when Plue comes up from behind her and starts to poke at her. The towns person behind Elie's face gives a sense of comic relief to the scene, in his awe and amazement at the "odd" creature. While Elie is examining the creatures features and so on, she can see and feel the sadness and anxiety rolling off the "bug" as she claims it to be. She looks in her hand to see the money she had just recently been counting, and a soft look comes to her eyes. But just a split second afterward, the determination to not let her feelings get the best of her and her gambling money kick in. Snatches back her money from her other hand and then begins to walk away. However, when she walks away Plue follows her. So she increases her speed,and so does he, but eventually Plue is easily keeping up with her at full speed. They end up running into Demon Card henchmen again, so they keep running, in the process however Plue runs into and destroy's a Candy Shop. After all this is over, Elie is eventually cornered with Plue by the Demon Card henchmen, so Elie pulls out her tonfan and begin to blast around, destroying nearly everything in a close area just like she had done in the casino.

In the mix of all the blasting and smoke, Plue is actually taken by one of the henchmen that seems to be the ring leader of the group. When she realizes this, she gets excited, knowing how fast Plue actually is. The scene changes and we see Haru screaming for Plue, being on top of a tall building. Making a comment that if this were at Garage Island, his home town, he would have already found Plue, but this city was too big. Then, he hears a large crowd roaring from behind him, and he turns to see that it is the colosseum for the local dog races. We then go inside the colosseum, and find Elie waiting in a boxed seat with several tickets in her hand or around her all having Plue written on them. When the dog races begin, all the dogs except Plue start running, and Elie gets angry when Plue doesn't run and starts to shake the small screen she is watching the race from because she,"Bet on my money on you !" While Haru is looking for Plue at the races, he glances up at the T.V. screen to see Plue just sitting there on the race track, startled he begins to race to the scene. When Plue doesn't start to run against the other dogs, two rolling machines are sent out with sharp razors and bullets are sent out to scare Plue and make him run. While he catches up, the announcer says they now enter the spear section and then spears rain down on the dogs and Plue, nearly killing many of them. When Elie sees this, she gets very upset and angry due to the animal cruelty shown. She takes out her tonfans, and begins blasting the rest of the projectiles thrown at the dogs and Plue from the machine above. She runs down to the track and picks up Plue, feeling sorrow and respect for him after all that he had just went through.

Thats when the security guard comes to get her, and is being rough, but she gets back away from him, and as she looks up and a lot more Demon Card waiting for her. But when she notices she is out of bullets from her tonfan, she gets worried. "Stop !" Haru said and holds a piece of a metal sign, then hops down and stands on the sign, flying down the long staircase. When he gets down there, he defeats all the henchmen, while Elie watches in amazement at all the power Haru has. Then, a far more powerful Demon Card member comes out, and when Haru tries to hurt him, he becomes smoke, or basically intangible. After several more attemps, Haru had no other choice than to use the power of the Rave (Holy Bring). Holding the sword in his hand, he punched the ground, making a considerable amount of damage, but again it did nothing. Finally he linked the power of the Rave to the Ten Commandments Sword, which did the trick.
