The fourth episode of the anime series Battle Spirits Double Drive.
After receiving a ship from the head of Mei's village, the group heads out to take back Glorious-Sheep.
Mei returns to his village upset, with Shunta and his group. After meeting up with Mei's mother and the village head, Eto explains their current crisis.
Although Shunta tries to reassure Mei that they'll take back his card, Yoku is much harsher, criticizing the way he battled and declaring that he isn't qualified to have a 12 God-King card. Mei's mother and the village head explain that Glorious-Sheep was used for a very long time in village festivals as a symbol of peace, and Mei only recently inherited it from his deceased father. Thus, it can't be helped that Mei isn't yet a skilled battler. Shunta also brings up the fact that Tatsumi used a very powerful Imagine brave card. Eto reveals that there are more cards like that in different colors, which excites Shunta because he wants to get an Imagine brave of his own. During the conversation, Shunta calls Eto by name, which shocks the village head. He was unaware that she was a descendant of the Etoshinmori family, but is determined to aide their cause, and offers a ship to them to speed up their travel, as well as food provisions.
Before the group leaves, Shunta invites Mei to come along with them, saying that this will be a chance to take back his stolen card. However, Mei decides not to join them, thinking there's nothing he'll be able to do.
Meanwhile, Sandrat spots Shunta. He believes that there may be a treasure he wants with him, and decides to pursue.
While on the ship, Shunta is enjoying the food. Eto tries to warn him not to eat all of it, because they're special provisions which will swell in his stomach. However, Shunta doesn't listen, and suffers the consequences.
Mei, meanwhile, asks his mother why he was given Glorious-Sheep. She tells him that Glorious-Sheep wasn't the only thing he inherited from his father.
The ship is soon stopped when two people stand in front of it, creating a human wall. They declare that they're twins, Wabii and Sabii. The brothers demand a battle for the 12 God-Kings. Shunta and Yoku start to argue over which of them should battle, which just annoys the two. They suggest two simultaneous one-on-one battles instead. Shunta and Yoku agree to this, but decide to make it a contest to see who can win their battle first. When Mei realizes that a battle is happening, he decides to go off and see.
Shunta and Yoku manage to battle evenly the whole time, largely due to using similar strategies, and Wabii and Sabii always drawing the exact same cards at the exact same time. Once they both get out their 12 God-King cards, they win the battle. Shunta considers himself the winner, having finished slightly faster. Yoku refuses to acknowledge this, however, as they were on the same turn and he managed to destroy all the opposing spirits, while Shunta didn't.
Meanwhile, Kinoto wonders if the fighting Shunta and Yoku even realized that Mei arrived. Mei is amazed by the battles, and hopes that one day he can be like Shunta and Yoku. Eto assures that he can, as he inherited the Sheep 12 God-King as the child of a heroic family.
Sandrat, who was also watching secretly, is thrilled that he's now found two more 12 God-King cards.
