On the Takarabune, Rikuo and Yura where been having a conversation about what happened during the battle against the Hyaku Monogatari Clan. They're then evenly later been talking about Seimei's group after that Yura said that Rikuo is busy to create his own Hyakki Yakō. Meanwhile, Ryūji and Mamiru are fighting against Tenkai. Mamiru was able to defeat Orochi which he want to use his Shikigami to attack them. Ryūji managed to put a halt to Tenkai's Shikigami, and figured out that he was the creator of the "Spiral Barrier" of the Aoi Castle and knows that it is his headquarter. Mamiru start to attack Tenkai but his electricity got discharged. Tenkai then explains his true meaning of the Spiral Barrier and said that he created a castle above the Aoi Castle which he conclude to be his best work. He said that Seimei is in the castle, saying that no human or yōkai can see or enter only if they can defeat him they are able to break the seal. Mamiru then makes another attack against Tenkai which Ryūji uses his Kyōgen to kill Tenkai. Tenkai seems to have the same ability as Ryūji which seems useless against him. Tenkai's shikigami has been killed by one of the tails of Hagoromo Gitsune. Hagoromo Gitsune then tells Kiyotsugu that she did it well for protecting the place during her absence.
