Yusuke and Chu are both exhausted from their bout and have
used up all their spiritual attacks... but there should be a winner in the match. So they
decide to continue their bout, by their own rules. Chu sets up two daggers in the ring
which will set as their attack boundaries. Then they decide to continue on, the hard way.
They decide to even out the match using their brute strength, physical attacks, and
nothing else since both have used up their spiritual powers... and on they go.
Both fighters slug it
out in the center of the ring, but it seems like the match is endless. Once Yusuke
connects with a solid attack, Chu bounces back with a right hand of his own, and Yusuke
strikes back.. Chu attacks again, Yusuke does, then Chu, as both continue to land hard
punches at each other. Keiko, who is watching the fight with Shizuru, could not stand the
fight anymore seeing Yusuke get clobbered hard.. so she decides to stop the fight and
rushes into ringside. Shizuru tries to stop her, but Keiko ran too fast and Shizuru could
Meanwhile at the VIP
lounge someone has knocked out the guards.. Then the man enters the room where the
businessman gambling for the tournament are negotiating.. Toguro greets him. He is Karasu,
a powerful demon, and an ally of Toguro. Both Karasu and Toguro admire Yusuke's skills as
they hope to face them later on in the tournament and they continue to watch the
slobberknocker... Meanwhile Shizuru has lost Keiko and now has also lost her way back..
just then some blood-hungry demons approach her. Sensing danger Shizuru runs for it, but
comes into a dead-end as the demons approach ready to devour her. Just then someone came
out from nowhere and dragged Shizuru away, leading her to safety. Turns out the man was
Sakyou, the proprietor of the tournament and Toguro's manager. Sakyou helped Shizuru from
being devoured by the demons, and Shizuru gets somehow infatuated with him as he leaves..
Now back with the
fight, Yusuke and Chu are both getting worned out from fighting, but still continues on as
both men are not letting themselves lose the fight. Just then Keiko arrives at ringside
and enters Yusuke's corner, and Kuwabara sees her. She pleads for Kuwabara to stop the
match, but Kuwabara tells her the fact that Yusuke will not appreciate it when the match
stops. He tells her that he has some challenges he needs to overcome (and we see some
flashbacks when Toguro displays his strength to Yusuke and destroys a building) and the
reason why he continues to fight with Chu even though he has no strength left is that he
wants to prove that he can fight hard.. and Keiko understands..
Now Yusuke and Chu are
desperate to win, and both has little energy left to throw out another attack, so Yusuke
and Chu decides to end it all using their final blow... and both headbutts each other.
Seems like both had the same idea of attack, and looks like the one with the harder head
will be the survivor of the match. A moment of silence, And Chu goes down... Yusuke's
determination prevailed as Koto counts to ten, and Yusuke wins by knockout!! Now he and
his team will advance to the second round of the Ankoku Bujutsukai, but what challenge
will be awaiting them there?
