Q4's Aichi and Kamui face off against Leon and Sharlene of Dreadnought in the finals of the Hong Kong Stage. Remembering Leon's fight with Daigo, Aichi and Kamui do their best to minimize the damage taken from Dreadnought's multi-attacking Aqua Force units. Although Aichi deals damage to Leon, he is unaffected by his attacks. Then, Aichi asks Leon what he means whenever he refers to the "wind". It is then revealed that Leon's "wind" is actually the power of Psyqualia. In a Psyqualia-induced vision, Leon tells Aichi a tale from long ago about a conflict between the many clans on the planet Cray. This war was eventually resolved by the appearance of the dominating Aqua Force armada. In the human world, the Souryu family had control over the Aqua Force which was used to hold power over the seven seas. However, for unknown reasons, the Aqua Force clan disappeared, and so did the Souryu family's power. The last remaining Souryu members foretold a prophecy of a child who would be "embraced by the wind" and restore the family name and the Aqua Force clan to their former glory; Leon believes that child is himself. In a flash, Aichi is shown a vision of two Blue Storm Dragon, Maelstroms, which Leon claims to be his "whirlwind" image of victory. Back to the tag fight, Leon rides one Maelstrom and activates its Limit Break. But Aichi uses a perfect guard to block its attack and safely makes it to his next turn. Does Aichi have the same kind of resolve that Leon has, willing to use Psyqualia to win?

On the next turn, Sharlene again uses the Limit Break of Navalgazer Dragon and forces both Kamui and Aichi to use a lot of their cards to defend against its attack. Then, Kamui says that his turn will be the last as he rides another Perfect Raizer, bringing its power up to full potential. However, the usually-mellow Sharlene easily blocks Kamui's attacks and grows angry with his indirect "Final Turn" declaration. On Leon's turn, he follows his "wind" and calls another Blue Storm Dragon, Maelstrom as a rear-guard, now having two Maelstroms as Aichi had seen through Psyqualia. Leon attacks him with his vanguard Maelstrom powered up via its Limit Break, and Kamui tries to tag guard for Aichi. However, Leon's drive check reveals a stand trigger, giving his vanguard Maelstrom enough power to penetrate Q4's defenses and win the match for Dreadnought. Shortly afterwards, the two teams argue over the value of losing. Leon asks Aichi about what is the path he takes, and Aichi is reminded to make his own path. Leon bids farewell to him and says that they will battle each other again someday. Privately, Jillian asks Leon why he would console his opponents like that, to which he answers by saying it was the "wind" that told him to do so. He and Sharlene take an interest in Aichi's gentle "wind", which Leon sees as potentially becoming a great "windstorm" eventually. After Team Dreadnought is transported away, Shin informs Team Q4 about the next and last stage of the VF Circuit; it will be in their home country, Japan.

The Ultra Rare trio returns, and they discover that their supposedly-closed shop is unlocked. The entire group enters, and they are surprised to find that the legendary cardfighter Daigo is there. It was believed that Daigo had gone missing for months, to which Daigo explains in a private conversation with Ultra Rare that he had been randomly teleporting from place to place. Suiko believes it is because of Daigo's deck, which is composed of Royal Paladins, one of the clans that were removed from the world, and therefore considered legendary by everyone except Aichi. Afterwards, Daigo offers up a challenge to anyone willing to cardfight with him. Before Aichi can accept, Leon steps up to be Daigo's opponent. And so, Team Q4 and Ultra Rare observe the fight between Daigo using Royal Paladins and Leon, whose deck is composed of another legendary clan: Aqua Force. Although Aichi is familiar with Royal Paladins, Daigo uses units that even he has never seen before, including White Dragon Knight, Pendragon. Leon rides Navalgazer Dragon and uses its seemingly-simple Limit Break to increase its attack power by 3000, which Daigo guards against. Daigo then utilizes the Limit Break of Pendragon to superior ride Soul Saver Dragon, using its skill to power up his rear-guards, but Leon defends and makes it to his next turn, which he declares as the "Final Turn".

Daigo tries to block with all of the cards in his hand, but Leon gets a heal trigger, giving the power boost to Navalgazer and breaking through Daigo's defenses.

Kyou is back for revenge against Team Q4 - specifically Kai. Kyou then proceeds to explain how things came to be this way - since he lost his match to Kai during the Nationals, he got banished from AL4. As a former member of AL4, Kyou had trouble finding a new team to join because no one wants to recruit a discarded AL4 member to prevent any conflicts. After multiple rejections, Kyou goes insane and swears vengeance against Team Q4. For the first match, Aichi decides to take the lead instead of letting Kai face Kyou again in hopes of earning more of Kai's acknowledgement. Under the influence of his new powers, Aichi becomes a completely different Cardfighter. Before the match, Aichi declares his victory and the card Young Pegasus Knight as the key card to win the match - something that Ren would do. During the match, Kyou slowly becomes intimidated by Aichi's resemblance to Ren. Kyou believed Aichi was simply bluffing after retiring his Young Pegasus Knight during his second turn. But at the end, Aichi reveals the second Young Pegasus Knight he had and declared his victory with the same attitude and aura as Ren.

Cardfight!! Vanguard - Season 1 - Episode 11

Aichi makes a comeback by calling more units from his deck to boost the power of The King of Knights, Alfred, forcing Ninja Master M to use most of his cards to guard against his attacks. As a result, M is left with no cards to defend himself from Aichi's last attack. Aichi wins and therefore advances to the semifinals. Ninja Master M disappears, and Mark soon arrives (with a bag containing his Ninja Master M attire). After Aichi's match, Kamui and Misaki play in their respective cardfights, and they both advance as well. Before the start of the semifinals, the tournament is put on hold for a lunch break. So, Aichi and Emi have lunch outside the card shop where Kamui tries to get Emi to feed him, but no such luck. After everyone returns to the shop, Aichi, Misaki, Kamui, and Kai all draw lots to determine who will be playing against who. Aichi is put up against Kamui while Kai must fight Misaki.

The tournament progresses to the second round matches with Aichi facing off against Ninja Master M while Kai plays against the previous tournament's champion Kazuki Inaba.

The student council president of the Miyaji Academy High School Division deems Aichi's Cardfight Club to be unnecessary for the school and orders the vice president, Suwabe, to devise on how to abolish it. Elsewhere, the Cardfight Club finds an empty classroom to serve its official headquarters. Then, the school's American football team, the Miyaji Vipers, barges in and takes the club outside to the academy's sub-ground where the Vipers' quarterback/captain, Ikki "the Catapult" Kongou, challenges Aichi to a cardfight, with the former appropriately using a Spike Brothers deck. This is an elaborate plan set up by Suwabe to have Ikki defeat Aichi and thereby crush the Cardfight Club members' spirits into not wanting to continue the club. Ikki uses strong Limit Break effects of the latest Spike Brothers to push for victory, but Aichi successfully defends and makes it to his next turn. Aichi then utilizes both the Break Ride of Solitary Liberator, Gancelot and the Limit Break of Liberator of the Round Table, Alfred to overpower and beat Ikki. This loss causes the football team's female cheerleaders to dump Ikki and the Vipers, which devastates them. Later, Naoki asks Ikki's motive for challenging the Cardfight Club, to which he answers that while he was bribed by the student council with a bigger budget for the football team, he mainly did it for the sake of playing against a strong cardfighter like Aichi. The Vipers then take their leave, and the Cardfight Club is more motivated to find a fifth member to have the club become official before the student council acts again.
