The fifty-first and final episode of the anime series Battle Spirits Double Drive.
Shunta and Yoku struggle to save Spirits World, and Kazuya, before it's too late.
When The Evil God-King evolves into its final form, Deathpeers-Zorc, it immediately prevents Shunta and Yoku from Sealing. Kazuya uses its other effect to keep removing core from Shunta and Yoku's field, although he begins to feel pain from this. Witnessing this from above, Eto realizes what's happening to Kazuya's body. She asks Kinoto to tell Shunta and Yoku.
Using magic, Shunta and Yoku manage to endure one more attack from Kazuya. Kazuya still doesn't care though, and boats that he'll still win. After all, he controls the Evil God-King. Shunta, who has also noticed Kazuya's pain, pleads to him to stop. Naturally, Kazuya doesn't care to listen. When Kinoto arrives, she explains what's happening exactly. Whenever Kazuya uses the Evil God-King's power, it's cutting his life away. He'll lose his soul if he keeps battling for much longer.
Kazuya still won't believe this, but then, Shishi appears. She says that it's all true, and reminds Kazuya of the time he offered his soul to be able to use the forbidden power of Ultimates. Shishi mocks him for falling for the temptation, and declares that while Kazuya can't really control the Evil God-King, she can control him. Struggling to rationalize this, Kazuya asks if he can still reset the world and be king of the new world. Shishi says yes. He'll no longer have pain or sadness. However, he won't have hope or happiness either. Just death and silence. He'll be king, but he'll be the only person in the world. That's because the world will only be a dream. As this is obviously not what Kazuya wanted, he starts to freak out and begs Shishi to let him go. But she refuses, and claims that he's her puppet to fight against the heroes with. Shishi tries to suck Kazuya into the Evil God-King with her. Struggling to get out, Kazuya asks to be taken back home. Shishi responds that he'll only be alone if he goes there.
Shunta, of course, declares that Kazuya isn't alone. He says that even if Kazuya hates him, he always wants to battle with Kazuya, because he's his rival. And also, an important Battle Spirits friend. He and Yoku try to convince Kazuya that all the opponents he's battled, he's made connections with. They're friends bound to him by Battle Spirits. Kazuya starts to see that he did make lots of friends because of Battle Spirits. That when he was playing, he wasn't lonely.
From the sidelines, Tatsumi decides to give power to Shunta and Yoku, so everyone can fight together. Kiki and Inui join in, as do Mei, Sandrat and Zark. Eto, Kinoto and the priests pray, and people all around the world join in. With the power that came to Shunta and Yoku, they draw one final card. This is a new Imagine Brave, Light Demon-God.
Light Demon-God's effect forces them both to discard their entire deck. However, it brings all 12 God-Kings to the field. Shunta and Yoku brave their new Imagine with Exceed-Formula and Gale-Phoenix-Zephyr. They make their attack. Shishi reminds them that she and Kazuya still have four more cards. She forces Kazuya to play Scramble Booster, which lets the Evil God-King block when exhausted. Next, she wants Kazuya to use Burst Wall. But Kazuya discards it, saying he's not her puppet to control. He begs Shunta and Yoku to beat the Evil God-King. Shishi points out that Kazuya will then be destroyed with the card. Kazuya still doesn't change his mind from hearing this, though. Even when Shishi tells Shunta and Yoku they were lying when they said they would save him, the two decide to continue their attack.
As Kazuya is absorbed in the blast, he thanks Shunta, saying he was happy. But Shunta and Yoku fly in, and Shunta grabs his hand, pulling him to safety.
Everyone celebrates the win, and the 12 God-Kings fly away while this is happening. Tatsumi decides to accept this. Shunta thanks Exeseed one last time.
Eto finds a blue crystal on the ground. She says that it has to be sealed away, to make sure this never happens again.
Later, Eto makes a speech before the people of Spirits World. She says that the world is safe, and thanks the heroes from other worlds for making this possible. Shunta and Yoku receive medals as a reward. Eto then announces that now, with the Soul Core restored, prosperity can be returned to Spirits World. However, it will take time and a lot of work. Tatsumi agrees to help with this.
As for Shunta and Yoku, they plan to return to their own world. Mei is upset by this, but Shunta says he'll never forget him, and invites Mei to come play in his world some time. Yoku says Mei can come to his world as well. Shunta then says Yoku should also come play in his world. Then they can see which of the two is stronger. They both start arguing over which is the strongest right there for a moment. Shunta then tells Yoku that while their worlds are different, they're linked by the bonds of Battle Spirits. The two hug, calling themselves the greatest of partners.
Soon after, Shunta is returned to his own world. He rushes back home and wakes up his whole family even though it's night, to tell them he's back. They're just annoyed, however. Kento reminds Shunta that he was the one who told him to go to bed early, and they're going to make decks the next day.
Shunta heads back to his room, realizing things were just like the day he left for Spirits World. He asks Kento what day it is, and if anything happened. Kento thinks he wants praise for winning the tournament, and congratulates him, before heading back to bed. Shunta is shocked that no time passed at all when he was away. He starts wondering if Spirits World was all a dream. But then, Kento asks him what the medal around his neck is. Shunta sees it, and is relieved to know he wasn't dreaming.
The next morning, Shunta rushes off. His family is impressed by how quickly he got up and ready for school. That morning, Kazuya also heads to school, and is greeted by his friends. They're disappointed that he lost, but invite him to play Battle Spirits after school. After all, Kazuya can just rebuild his streak, so they hope he won't quit after one loss. After school, Kazuya meets Shunta in a shop. They two start to battle.
Months later, at school, Shunta's teacher announces that there's a new student. When the student walks in, Shunta is stunned. It's Yoku.
