Harutora and Natsume must stop Suzuka from using the forbidden Taizan Fukun Ritual that she is planning to use resurrect her older brother as well as preventing her from sacrificing herself.
The episode starts out with Harutora and Natsume riding on Yukikaze. The scene then changes to Suzuka making her preparations at the shrine for the Taizan Fukun Ritual and telling her brother that it will be soon when she resurrects him. She then prepares to deal with Natsume and Harutora and as they arrive, Suzuka orders her Tsuchigumo (Armored Juggernaut) to create a barrier around the alter with its webs to prevent Natsume and Harutora to enter the alter and interfere with the ritual. Unable to enter the alter, Harutora and Natsume try convincing Suzuka to not use the Taizan Fukun Ritual since it's forbidden for a reason. However, Suzuka refuses and sends another Tsuchigumo, an Asura, to attack Harutora and Natsume. Harutora and Natsume are left facing the two shikigamis as Suzuka begins the Taizan Fukun Ritual. The Tsuchigumos start attacking and firing spells at Natsume and Harutora. Harutora manages to defend against the attacks with his powerful, defensive sword and Yukikaze starts flying up to evade more attacks. Meanwhile fighting, as Yukikaze is flying up, Harutora falls off and in order to save him from possibly falling to his death, Natsume summons Hokuto (Dragon) to catch Harutora and uses it afterwards as a trump card to face the two Tsuchigumos. Hokuto is left off to fighting the Asura, while Harutora and Natsume face against the Armored Juggernaut. Natsume infuses the power of Indra into Harutora's sword changing it from a defensive sword to an offensive one and uses her "peach-wood bow imbued with magic". Harutora creates an opening for Natsume and they manage to defeat the Armored Juggernaut as well as destroy the barrier and proceeds to reach Suzuka. However, the Armored Juggernaut revives and chases Harutora and Natsume only to be blocked by Hokuto who has already defeated the Asura. Harutora and Natsume arrive to confront Suzuka only to be stopped by Suzuka putting many charms on them, binding them to the ground. The charms are revealed by Harutora to be made using Suzuka's own blood. Suzuka manages to complete the Taizan Fukun Ritual and revives her older brother. However, her brother grabs and her neck and says "Not enough." Suzuka recalls their childhood of having fun, but is brought back to the present by her brother's strangling of her and telling her that this isn't enough for him. Harutora and Natsume manage to break out of the charms and discover that a spiritual pulse is controlling Suzuka's brother. Harutora attempts to destroy the spiritual pulse by attacking with his sword only to end up failing. After several attempts, Harutora decides to throw a crate or storage equipment of some sort into the spiritual pulse that he and Natsume brought along with them. Natsume creates a spell using a magic circle that no one can look up at or else their soul will be taken away. The battle is over and Harutora tries to comfort Suzuka and tells her to give her brother a proper burial. The episode ends with Touji and Harutora going to Tokyo and following Natsume to the Shaman school, Onmyo Academy.
