The fourteenth episode of the anime series Battle Spirits Shounen Toppa Bashin.
In the main tournament, Bashin and J make it to the final round.
J's match with Smile continues. Commentator-san and Female Announcer identify Smile as a card battler who came from overseas, and one rumored to leave all his opponent's crying.
Using Cerru-Berus' special effect, Smile takes control of J's Odin, and uses it to defeat him.
After the match, J is depressed, and goes outside. There, he encounters Michael Elliott, the game designer of Battle Spirits and a friend of his father. Elliott reveals that the reason Smile was using new cards is because he gave them to Smile. He suggests to J, who wants to become stronger, that he should study abroad when he enters middle school.
As the matches continue, Suiren is matched against Number Nine. She loses the match, and is irritated by this, as well as Nine's smugness.
Meanwhile, Meganeko discovers Card Sensei going to meet with Smile. Smile refers to Card Sensei as Number Five. J has a battle with Striker, and wins. As for Bashin, his next opponent will be Smile, but he's not really worried.
Card Sensei meets with King Uchuuchouten, the leader of Thousand Spirits Group. Uchuuchouten questions Card Sensei for not entering the tournament, but he argues that his objective was only to watch over the chosen card battlers.
In Bashin's match with Smile, he's able to win, to Smile's shock. He's excited to battle J in the finals, but first, J must defeat Number Nine. Of course, being back on his usual winning streak, J does win.
Now that all three are eliminated, Number Nine goes back to Smile and Number Eight. They begin to talk, and mention Number Five. This gets Eight angry, who calls him a coward and walks out. Smile is surprised that she isn't happy to see him.
Before Bashin and J's match, Smile confronts J, because Thousand Spirits Group is interested in recruiting him. J, however, is too focused on Bashin to care.
Finally, Bashin and J battle. In the end, J wins thanks to his new X-rare, The Gigantic Thor. Bashin doesn't mind though, because the battle was fun.
Later that night, Smile and Card Sensei talk outside. Smile declares that Card Sensei can have Bashin, but claims J for himself.

- Michael Elliott, the actual game designer, appears in the anime for the first time. This is the first example of a real-life person appearing in one of the anime series.
- On King Uchuuchouten's monitor, there is a Number Six listed. The identity of Number Six is never revealed in the anime.
- Though there are 5 matches in this episode, they can fit both due to the normal practice of skipping turns, and that they end on a time-limit, even if neither player's life was bought to zero.
