Bashin Episode 19 Bashin Episode 21

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

On the last day of school, Bashin decides to ditch the surprise party his class planned for Card Sensei.


Bashin heads out to meet Meganeko before the last day of school, who's carrying an unusual load with her (so much that she nearly forgets her diary). This is because their class has been planning a surprise party for Card Sensei. Bashin helps her by taking one of the bags.

In class, Card Sensei tries to teach the class a lesson on how they can all stay friends even though they'll be apart now. Much to his dismay, Bashin is sleeping through class and misses out. As soon as the bell rings, everyone dashes out to prepare for the party. Not knowing about it, this depresses Card Sensei.

As everyone is setting up outside, Striker shows up. Bashin tells him about their plans, but Striker reminds him that Suiren is waiting for them at the Battle Spirits center.

Striker goes ahead, and meets Suiren there. They get into a battle while waiting for Bashin. Striker debuts his new swift spirits, but even with this added ability, Suiren defeats him.

Still waiting for Card Sensei to arrive, Bashin is getting extremely impatient, and wants to just go bring him there himseld. The other students are forced to hold him back, not wanting Bashin to ruin the surprise. Bashin argues that his friends are waiting. Meganeko is upset to hear this, wondering if that means she and his other classmates aren't his friends. She can't stop him from leaving, so she throws her diary at him and runs back inside the school.

Card Sensei finally does arrive, and is really pleased with the surprise. That is, until he realizes Bashin and Meganeko are missing. After finding out what happened, he goes to look for Meganeko.

At the Battle Spirits Center, Striker and Cap are reading Meganeko's diary, which Bashin picked up. Bashin is mad at them for laughing at it, but when he looks at it himself, he finds Meganeko's insinuation that Card Sensei is actually a Nazo-Otona quite ridiculous himself. Suiren is upset to see them mocking Meganeko's feelings.

Card Sensei finds Meganeko in the school. Meganeko tells him how upset she is at Bashin leaving them on everyone's last day together. Card Sensei reminds her of his lesson, assuring her that Bashin will always be her friend.

Meanwhile, Suiren challenges Bashin to a battle, wanting him to apologize to Meganeko if he loses. Bashin accepts. However, his battling is clearly off, and he keeps making careless mistakes. Somehow, he manages to pull himself together and win in the end though, thanks to a new magic card, Seventh Crimson.

Although he won, Bashin decides to apologize anyway. However, he just hides when he sees Meganeko coming home, happily talking with Card Sensei. He goes home instead, but is still feeling guilty.

Battle Spirits Lecture SegmentEdit

The featured card is Seventh Crimson, a red magic card. It's effect was powerful enough to save Bashin from a situation where he would have been defeated.


Striker vs. SuirenEdit

Turn 16 (Striker):

-On Striker's field is 2 Beatbeetle. On Suiren's field is Skulldevil and Bat-Bat.

-Striker attacks with both Beatbeetles. Suiren blocks each. Both Beatbeetles and Suiren's Bat-Bat are destroyed.

Turn 19 (Suiren):

-Suiren draws the Shackles of Doom, which she was waiting for, and deploys it. She adds core to Bat-Bat and Top-Supra, bringing them both to LV2. This will allow them to still attack with The Shackles of Doom in Play. Suiren then summons The SevenShogun Desperado. With its effect when summoned, 1 core is removed from each spirit.

Turn 19 (Bashin):

-Bashin summons Metalburn and Rokceratops. He then plays a magic, Buster Phalanx, to destroy all nexuses. Of course, he was the only one to have a nexus, so this just destroyed The Ancient Fault.

He then plays Seventh Crimson, which requires sacrificing a spirit with 7000BP or more, in this case, Siegfried. Then, he can remove 7 cores from Suiren's spirits, which depletes them all.

-Bashin attacks with his three remaining spirits, taking out the rest of Suiren's lives.
