Cardfight!! Vanguard - Season 3 - Episode 41

Kamui continues his battle against the Reversed Rekka, who reiterates how she has no friends despite Emi and Mai being there for her ever since she transferred into Miyaji Academy. After both fighters perform Crossbreak Rides and stop each other's attacks, Kamui points out a flaw in Rekka's logic of using Emi and Mai as hostages when it would have been easier to Reverse them. This is proof of how Rekka does not actually want to Reverse Emi and Mai and that despite her earlier claims, she deeply cares about them as friends. While Rekka reels from this exposure, Kamui launches multi-pronged attacks to win the fight and dispel her of Reverse. Along with Emi, Mai, and Team Handsome, Kamui and Rekka then battle and defeat Reiji, Eiji, and the Rekka Corps, lifting the spell of Reverse from them. Emi expresses her thanks to Kamui, which causes him to run off in embarassment. At the front of the school, he runs into Maki and Kourin who have just arrived from the camping trip. Kourin gives a troubling look towards Kamui as an airplane flies overhead.
