That time, they caught the children who make the monster, and find out they are orphans gathered there for many reasons. Koumei tells them she has a plan to protect the shrine. She tells Enjutsu about the sword turning to dust while fighting the monster, and suggests her to build an orphanage or else the monster will come back. Ryuubi's party pretend to be ghosts to scare the wits out of Enjutsu but somehow she is freaked out by some "true" ghost (she seems to be the boy's deceased mother Ryuubi gives flowers to). So, Enjutsu does what Koumei says.|
|09|| Gakushin, Riten and Ukin protect a village|
"Gakushin, Riten, Ukin, Mura o Mamoran to Suru no Koto" (楽進、李典、于禁、村を守らんとするのこと)
|Ryuubi is really happy about giving her sword back. In the way to return Touka, the party stops to rest in a village. They're mistaken to bandits, then their leaders Riten and Ukin attack them. Shortly after that, the mistake is clear and their other leader, Gakushin, brings a formal excusement to them. They find out Gakushin's group plans to join Sousou's army due to her good impression, but the bandits around there attack them many times and they don't have plans to defeat all the bandits, though. Ryuubi's party decide to help them. Koumei plans to use the Ryuujin-ko (the near lake) to help defeat the bandits (a flood attack using the rain, the bridge, the lake and the riverbed). They build a floodgate due to Riten's construction talent.
Following the tactic, a small group attacks the bandits' camp to lure out them. When they arrive the riverbed, Riten will follow Koumei and Ryuubi's signal to open the floodgate to use the water attack. But the large rock falls and halts the water. Ryuubi uses her sword to a lightning rod and the lightning breaks the large rock. Finally, the flood attack is successful. Ryuubi asks Kan-u to be her younger sister, but Chouhi says she only accepts Ryuubi as her older sister, and the bond is built.

"Kōmei, Imōto o Hossuru no Koto" (孔明、妹を欲するのこと)

Ryuubi breeds Kan-u food, that makes her embarressing, and Chouhi gets jealous because Kan-u doesn't do that to her. Seeing that makes Koumei remembers about the past, about her elder and younger sisters. The party pasts by Koumei's home city and Chouun gets lost again. Arriving Suikyou's house, a girl with witch outfit opens the gate and runs to the home because they wield weapons. Suikyou introduces the timid girl, Houtou, to the party. Ryuubi says Koumei and Suikyou make a good family that makes Houtou a bit jealous. Suikyou arranges the bedrooms for the party, but Houtou doesn't want to take the same room with Koumei. The day after, Houtou wants Suikyou to go picking up herbs as she has promised but she can't go, and Koumei suggests she will go in Suikyou's place. Houtou silently goes with her, but she doesn't seem a bit interest. She gets angry at Koumei and runs away, telling her she doesn't want them to be friends. Houtou falls into a hole in the old bridge, merely catches the bridge's rope. Koumei, despite her scare, manages to go to Houtou's place and helps her up. Their relationship gets better and Houtou says goodbye to Koumei with promise she will visit her someday.
The Chou sisters' performance is thwarted by government's soldiers. Chouhou gets angry and commands her audience to get the soldiers.
|11|| Bachou tries to hold it in|
"Bachō, Nyōi o Koraen to Suru no Koto" (馬超、尿意をこらえんとするのこと)
|The Chou sisters' inn gets destroyed due to the attack of Chouhou's audience. The audience does too much and that makes the Chou sisters fugitives. They decide to get more and more supporters so the army can't touch them anymore.
Bachou's cousin, Batai arrives to Touka village and plays a trick on Bachou. Bachou gets angry and wants her to go back to Sairyou, but Kouchuu calms her down and she forgives Batai. They have strict exercises in the morning. Batai gets exhausted many times but Bachou doesn't have her stop. Batai makes a bet with Bachou that she can't help wetting herself and makes her drink a lot of water and hold it until the dinner. Bachou uses many methods to hold it in, and she ends up with releasing "it" in the river. Ryuubi's party comes back, and the fishes Kouchuu uses for dinner is from "that" river.
After the dinner, Koumei holds a meeting about Sousou inviting them to join her army to wipe out the Yellow Turbans led by the Chou sisters. Later, Kan-u, Ryuubi, Chouhi and Koumei depart for battles, leaving Touka village to Kouchuu, Bachou and Batai. In the main camp, Sousou and Kan-u talk about the flag of Ryuubi's army. They meet Enjutsu and Choukun again. Sousou gets troubled because the number of Yellow Turban's army gets bigger and bigger, and Ten-i reports to her that Kada wants to meet her again.

They agree with him to use another songs of another singers to affect the Yellow Turbans' hearts, make them leave the rebels. And they use Enjutsu and Choukun's talent in music, and Teiiku suggests adding Kakuka. When Kada returns, he gets three magic crystals from Gotobedou's head with limited magic. They execute the plan.
Ryuubi, Kan-u and Chouhi, Gakushin, Riten and Ukin, with Kada and the three singers Enjutsu, Choukun and Kakuka drive a big car to the rebels' tents. The song contest goes on.
