The twenty-third episode of the anime series Battle Spirits Shounen Toppa Bashin.

Bashin wants to test his new X-Rare on J, but he's still acting strangely.


Number Eight and Number Nine are discussing their plans to distribute the High Ranker Passes before the spring tournament. Additionally, there's still a new X-rare to be handed out.

Meganeko is at Card Sensei's apartment again, sewing something. Card Sensei wonders if she should try to get a High Ranker Pass before the tournament. Meganeko, however, decides not to, wanting to be able to practice more during the Gunslinger.

At J's house, he gets a delivery from Smile. Inside is a High Ranker Pass. Bashin, who also got a Pass, is very excited. As he heads out to show it off, he runs into Number Eight. Bashin challenges her to a battle, hoping to get an X-rare card, since she never gave him one the last time they battled. Number Eight uses The TwinRowdy Diranos, a new red X-rare during the match, which Bashin is able to defeat, and earns it as his reward.

Bashin meets with his friends at J's house. Striker is happy to have gotten a High Ranker Pass as well, but he's shocked to see that Bashin got an X-Rare as well. Bashin is excited to test it out on J, but unfortunately, he isn't around.

Striker and Suiren start battling, to practice for the tournament, which makes Bashin even more impatient for J to show up. He checks J's room, only to find it empty. Looking out the window, he notices J leaving in his limousine.

J's drive bought him a briefcase with a video inside of Thousand Spirits Group. Though his driver is concerned over J sneaking away from his sister and friends, and keeping things from them, J responds that he doesn't want them involved. He puts in the video, only to see his father. Elliott and Smile are there as well, and are discussing Isekai World. J is disturbed to see his father going along with their plans. He decides to learn more by talking with Smile, who sent him a message requesting a meeting on the back of the High Ranker Pass.

Back at J's house, Kyouka tries on her new school uniform. Striker is quite impressed by it. J and Kyouka's mother comments that now that everyone will be in middle school, they're more like adults. Kyouka is still worried about J, but thinks that Bashin can find him.

J arrives at the Battle Spirits Center, where Smile was supposed to meet him. However, he isn't there yet. Bashin shows up though, wanting a battle. He expected J would be there, because where else would a card battler go before the tournament? J hopes to wait until the tournament to battle Bashin, but accepts when he realizes that Bashin wants to test out a new card, and decides he has enough time.

While they battle, Bashin is confused by J's strategy, as it differs from his usual Thor combo. However, he simply had an alternate plan to use Thor, and wins before Bashin can even draw Diranos.

After the battle, Bashin confronts J, concerned that he's keeping secrets and worrying Kyouka. However, J tells him to worry about himself first. He believes that he's doing what's proper, and he'll explain when the time comes. Bashin accepts that, as long as J promises to battle him in the tournament.

As Bashin heads home, he runs into Meganeko, who's in a rush, but says she'll see him tomorrow. Bashin, confused, wonders if she's still angry at him. Meganeko is just afraid that Bashin figured out her secret.

When Smile finally arrives at the Center, it's night. J tries to rationalize why his father would be with them, but Smile implies it's because he really is a part of Thousand Spirits Group. When J asks what Thousand Spirits Group's objectives are, Smile replies that the only way to find out is to defeat them. He asks J to become his tag partner in order to defeat King Uchuuchouten.
