The twenty-eighth episode of the anime series Battle Spirits Shounen Toppa Bashin.
Battle Spirits TV films a special at J's castle, which is rumored to be haunted.
Battle Spirits TV is in Finland, visiting the castle which belongs to J's family. Bashin, Striker and My Sunshine were invited along too. However, Bashin is acting against script. Striker is concerned that they'll give their own country a bad name if they don't behave.
The pets also came along, and want something to do. They decide to go inside the castle as well.
As the show begins, J mentions that his father no longer lives in the castle, which gets him depressed. Bashin wants to cheer him up, and tries to remind J about their promise to defeat King Uchuuchouten. Unfortunately, he makes a disaster by knocking down suits of armor and breaking a lock. The filming is forced to pause while they clean up.
Meanwhile, the pets wander around on their own. They discover a walking suit of armor, which appears to be talking to a painting. This freaks them out, so they run to find their owners. Once everyone is reunited, they stop to talk. The pets notice a picture of the knight, which they think is the ghost they saw. J reveals that it's a knight from his family line. However, there are rumors that his ghost lives in the castle.
Then, a strange woman appears. It turns out to be J's aunt, whom Kyouka doesn't really like, but J is quite close to. With her is a gardener and butler. She reveals that she became the caretaker of the castle, and takes J away from the others.
Since J is needed for the show, he has to be found. Kyouka thinks that the room he was taken to has blood on the floor, but actually, it's just wine. Regardless, J and his aunt are nowhere to be found. Kyouka comes to the conclusion that their aunt must be a ghost. She could be dead, as they hadn't heard from her in a long time. She, the butler and the gardener were released when Bashin broke the lock. They want to take J away to the spirit world.
The group continues to look for clues, when My Sunshine also vanishes. She leaves behind a card, The PhantomKnight Nightrider, which might be a clue. Soon after, Striker also disappears, leaving behind The Anthill and a feather from Cap.
Finally, they reach the painting that the pets found earlier. Actually, it leads them to a secret room. Inside they find Smile, as well as the "knight" from earlier, which was actually Number Eight in disguise. Smile had just come there after J, but there was never a ghost.
As for J, he was in Isekai World, battling with his aunt. Soon after the battle is over, he finds Smile, and they get into a battle. When Smile loses, he freaks out, as lately, he was on a losing streak. J thinks Smile is interesting for the first time, so he agrees to help Smile out.
My Sunshine and Striker were also missing because they got into battles with the butler and gardener. The cards they left behind were just dropped by accident. Bashin is upset that everyone got to battle but him.
