The thirty-ninth episode of the anime series Battle Spirits Shounen Toppa Bashin.
Bashin forms a team to get back J, but before the tournament, Seven defects.
Battle Spirits TV is proud to announce that a new arena will be opening. Also, it will host the first team battle tournament, a new stage in Battle Spirits.
Bashin's team, Team Shomen Toppa, has of course come to enter. It consists of all the chosen card battlers other than J, with Seven as the 6th member. They see Smile in the lobby, who shakes Seven up a little. After he leaves, the group forms a ring around Kyouka, and promises to get J back this time. However, Seven forgets to join them at first.
Some of the Numbers, meanwhile, discuss the domes they've created. They explain that the purpose of the tournaments are to draw out card battlers, to see who has the power of the cornerstones.
Soon after, Team Shomen Toppa is officially entered, so the members (other than Seven) go off to discuss battle strategy. How to defeat blue is their biggest concern.
Seven sees Number Eight by the entrance to the Numbers' room. Seeing that Seven is wavering over whether or not to go in, Eight wonders if he's concerned about betraying Bashin. Seven replies that it's just because he's not confident about being a Number. Thinking that the answer to his problems is obvious, Eight goes inside and tells Seven to come in when he's ready.
Team Shomen Toppa tries to select who will be partners in the tag battles. Striker suggests that he and Bashin should be a tag. Pink and Suiren think that blue should be matched with a purple deck. Meanwhile, Bashin seems to be pondering something serious, but he really just has to go to the bathroom badly. He runs off.
Bashin runs into Seven in the bathroom, who is carrying his Galaxy costume with him. Seven explains that he has no courage, and doing the ring before didn't improve his situation. He thinks Bashin should take over as president. Bashin, however, argues that Seven was great when he was Galaxy. Seven hands a card to Bashin and thanks him.
Once Bashin leaves the bathroom, Meganeko runs into him, upset. It turns out that Seven removed himself from the roster, so Team Shomen Toppa is disqualified. Striker and Suiren try to argue with a staff member, but he won't change his mind. Bashin mentioned that he saw Seven in the bathroom, but since he didn't know at the time, couldn't try to stop him. The group goes off to search for Seven.
While on the lookout, Kyouka thinks she sees J. However, it's actually Pseudo-J. She seems infatuated with him, and is getting his autograph, but Suiren drags her away.
The search reaches a major obstacle when Thousand Spirits Group publicly announces the 6th member of their own team. That is, Number Seven.
Bashin finally finds Seven, and asks him to explain. Seven replies that Bashin already saw the truth, so that isn't necessary. They decide to have a battle.
The card Bashin was given earlier was The GiantHero Titus. Using that, Bashin is able to give Seven a deck out, and win the match. Once the match is over, Seven reveals to Bashin that he wanted his junior to learn that blue could defeat blue. Bashin is still concerned about Seven's betrayal. He accepts it though, seeing how strongly Seven feels about being a member of Numbers Elite. Seven then gives Bashin one more X-Rare, The MobileFortress Castle-Golem. Number Eight was watching Bashin and Seven, and seems to be proud of Seven.
Battle Spirits TV starts to announce the tournament teams, such as "Batosupiking," Pseudo-J's team. The members of Team Shomen Toppa are concerned, because Bashin still hasn't bought back Seven. Bashin does return soon, but alone.
Then, the last entry of the tournament, Team Shomen Toppa is announced. Masako appears, and tells Bashin and the others that she added herself to the roster, so they can still participate.
Soon, the tournament wins, and both Numbers Elite and Team Shomen Toppa keep winning matches. They both advance to the next round.
