The forty-fourth episode of the anime series Battle Spirits Shounen Toppa Bashin.
While on a trip to the beach, Striker notices My Sunshine is acting strangely, so the pets convince him she must be in love with someone.
Bashin and the others are playing volleyball at the beach. Bashin and Striker's team is defeated, when Striker attempts to kick the ball into the net like in soccer. After Bashin yells at him, Striker notices that My Sunshine looks sad.
The reason the group actually came to the beach wasn't to play around, though. They came for training camp, to prepare for the King Uchuuchouten Cup. Bashin and Striker were lucky to be allowed to come, because their mothers were unhappy with their poor grades.
Striker is still worried about My Sunshine, who isn't interested in playing Battle Spirits with them. She says that nothing is wrong, however. When Striker asks the pets about this, they explain to him that My Sunshine must be in love. As a huge fan, Striker is somewhat traumatized by the thought, and wonders if he can resolve the problem using Battle Spirits.
Striker and the pets start to spy on My Sunshine, who is making drawings in the sand. They notice that her drawings resemble a soccer ball, Hercules-Geo's horn, and Striker's hair. Therefore, the object of My Sunshine's love must be Striker. Actually, My Sunshine was just drawing food, and a wave. The problem is that she misses getting to eat the food she likes.
Although the pets were just messing with Striker for fun, he doesn't know this, and has gone completely delusional from the revelation that My Sunshine loves him. He goes out into the water and imagines himself as a spirit, battling to save My Sunshine from a robotic BattleBeast Bun-ffalo. Of course, he starts to drown, because he can't swim.
Striker wakes up on shore, with My Sunshine. He thinks that because they're alone now, he should confess to her. Before he gets the chance though, Kyouka appears and orders My Sunshine to get her hands off Striker. The two quickly get into a battle over Striker, after My Sunshine turns back into Suiren.
Striker is shocked that Kyouka is also in love with him, and tries to decide who to cheer for. He notices that Kyouka, who normally uses blue, is using green spirits and becomes concerned, though Kyouka tells him not to worry. Striker then imagines a future where he's married to Kyouka, and being taken care of. He decides that he wants to marry a girl like Kyouka.
Next, Striker imagines himself being married to Suiren. This time, Suiren just uses him as furniture. As Suiren starts to take control of the match, Striker realizes he'll have to be stuck married to her, and be tormented forever. On the other hand, he remembers that because Suiren is My Sunshine, he would also have her. That would make being married to Suiren worthwhile.
Once Striker starts rooting for Suiren, Kyouka makes a comeback and wins the match. Suiren apologizes and runs off, while Kyouka takes claim on Striker. But then, Meganeko, Masako and Okyou all appear, declaring that they want Striker too. Another battle is about to begin.
Fortunately, this is all a dream. Striker almost drowned, and the actual My Sunshine was worried about him. However, he survived thanks to the pets.
Striker is ready to torture the pets afterwards for putting him through all this, but once they apologize, he decides to forget about it. He declares that his only love is Battle Spirits.
Later, Striker sees My Sunshine again. He tells her that he wanted her to win the battle, She thanks him even though she doesn't know what he's talking about, and then Striker runs off, embarrassed.
