& the rest enter the room on the 3rd level where Koganei was waiting for
them. Instead of fighintg them, Koganei said that they
are a bunch of weaklings and pressed a button. A wall from a ceiling came down and the gang
tried to stop it but couldn’t. Then, Tokiya Mikagami appeared...
not particularly pleased with the change of event, questioned Mikagami's identity. A man
came in and reported that all the water in
the pools was gone. Kurei sees the footage and suspected the maudough that
Mikagami was using. Meanwhile, Mikagami sarcastically asked Recca, Fuko and
Domon if they were challenging their
strength against the wall. Fuko snapped at him in extreme annoyance, saying that he
came here to have
revenge on Recca because he had lost to him. Mikagami agreed with her as he held
out Ensui but unexpectedly cut the wall to pieces. The falling pieces of wall made the trio
scream as they shield themselves. But this scene had caught Kurei’s attention.
(using Domon and Recca as stepping-stones) stepped over to the other side,
composed as ever. The trio yelled at him for nearly killing them but Mikagami quietly
insulted them back – Domon
as a gorilla, Fuko as a monkey and Recca as a mosquito and that such animals
useless. Ganko personally felt that even though Mikagami was handsome but his
attitude was so cold. Koganei gave a surprise attack which Mikagami blocked perfectly. Koganei
Mikagami attacked him back. As Recca watched, he couldn't believe how skillful
Mikagami was despite the fact that he has beaten him.
confirmed his suspicion that Mikagami possessed the Hokage maudough, Ensui.
However, his attention was still on Recca, who hadn't reveal his ability yet. As
for Mokuren, he still had his craze in killing Fuko. Kurei finally gave him
permission to do so. Back to the room, Koganei was so impressed with
Mikagami that he asked him if he was the knight that Yanagi had mentioned.
Mikagami said 'yes' which Recca protested intensely. Mikagami pointed Ensui at
him and reminded him of the promise that he made back at the House of Mirrors. Their
talk was interrupted by Koganei who wants to challenge Mikagami.
Mikagami told them to hurry up and rescue Yanagi and if they want to thank him, they should thank Kage Houshi for sending him. In his mind, Mikagami admitted that Recca was the one that Yanagi wants to see. Koganei cursed but said that they won’t go far. On the way, the gang went through booby traps – trap doors, spikes and falling doors. During which, Recca released his flame, shocking Kurei completely.
repeated the footage of Recca releasing his flame, meanwhile Yanagi’s screams are
heard from behind.
He stopped the experiment and demanded that Yanagi reveal the name of the guy who
just used the flame. She replied that he was her friend. Kurei slapped her and
questioned her fiercely. The frightened Yanagi said that she only know him by
the name of Recca. At the word ‘Recca’, Kurei believed that fate had allowed
him to meet someone whom he thought that he would never see 400 years ago. He
uncontrollably laughed evilly.
Kogenai and Mikagami battled on, Koganei told him that his Anki Kougan had 5
faces, puzzling Mikagami. Moving on, the gang entered another room
(how rooms did this mansion have anyway?) and met Kurei for the first time. The rash Recca
attacked him but Kurei held his fiery arm without feeling any pain and threw
him back. Recca sent another flame but once again, Kurei remained untouched and
even extinguished it. Seeing that Recca had calmed down and was willing to talk,
Kurei told them that he and Recca were born in the same era 400 years ago.
During the process of uniting Japan, the shogun eliminates all the ninja clans
because he feared the Hokage ninja due to their ability to create madoughs, which
till today, modern science couldn't create. Through time, the maudoughs had been
over the world and if he could collect all of them, imagine the power that he
could obtain. The
kidnap of Yanagi was done because his father, Mori Kougan desired immorality.
lost his temper and attacked Kurei who counter reacts with his own flame. Recca
was stunned. Kurei explained that they are both descendants of the Hokage ninja
clan and were sent to the present time. Recca would not remember since he was
still a baby at that time. He clicked his fingers, the door trap beneath the gang
opened. Everybody fell except Recca who grabbed hold of the edge. He was speechless
that Kurei knew about Kage Houshi (the woman with 2 birthmarks on her chin).
Before Recca fell into the basement, Kurei told him that if Recca could defeat
the fighter (who was waiting at the basement) he would fight him.
