Bashin Episode 01 Bashin Episode 03

The second episode of the anime series Battle Spirits Shounen Toppa Bashin.

After his match against J, Bashin learns that he's a chosen card battler.


Using white magic, J quickly won the match against Bashin. When Bashin was returned to the real world, he was confused as to what just happened, and upset over his loss. J explained that they battled in a place called Isekai World, in which only chosen card battlers could reach. He suggested Bashin ask Aibou if he wanted to know any further details. As Aibou was just a mouse, Bashin was confused by this.

Meanwhile, Meganeko was still in the classroom cleaning, because Bashin forgot about her. Card Sensei found her crying, and realized what had happened. He volunteered to help Meganeko look for Bashin. Meganeko accepted this, but was concerned that he was only interested in helping for the chance to see Bashin's mother.

Aibou tried to cheer up Bashin, who was still depressed, telling him it was a good match. Bashin was thankful, until he realized that Aibou, who never talked before, was actually having a conversation with him. Aibou explained that this was a result of Bashin's cornerstone, the pendant he was wearing, awakening. It also would give Bashin the power to open Isekai World. Aibou insisted that Bashin keep this a secret from everyone, in order to keep his friends and family out of danger.

At that time, Card Sensei and Meganeko found Bashin. Card Sensei started to scold him for what he did. They were stopped when J's limo drove up in front of them. J challenged Bashin to another battle the next time they met, and drove off. When Meganeko questioned him about this, Bashin yelled at her, telling her she didn't need to know about it. Further angered at Bashin, Card Sensei then challenged him to a match. If Bashin lost, he would have to apologize to Meganeko.

Baito-kun overheard this. Though he was closing up the Battle Spirits Center, he wanted to see the match, and invited them inside. Bashin and Card Sensei began their match, with Meganeko watching on. Meanwhile, J's driver got lost, and they passed the Center. Surprised that it was still open, J went inside to investigate. Though he criticized Bashin earlier, this time, J was impressed. He left before the match ended, saying that if Bashin didn't win, then he wouldn't be a worthy rival.

Bashin won the match, because Card Sensei overestimated the amount of core he had. However, he decided to apologize to Meganeko anyway. Meganeko enjoyed the match, and wanted to watch a battle again some day.

Later that day, Bashin decided that he wouldn't waste cards again, as he did with Gowsilvia. He was excited about the thought of beating J someday. When Bashin's mother returned later, she found Bashin asleep on the couch, and bought him to his room.
