The eighth episode of the anime series Battle Spirits Double Drive.
The chosen heroes visit a Soul Spot in hopes of finding an Imagine Brave.
Eto senses a power so strong, she passes out. After recovering, she explains to the others that she detected a powerful Soul Spot. In other words, a place where Soul Core energy was accumulated. These points can draw in very powerful Battle Spirits cards, meaning at one this strong, it's likely there could be an Imagine Brave.
When the group reaches the Soul Spot, Shunta is excited, finding it similar to a dungeon. Eto explains that people who enter will have to take tests, and may never return if they fail. Although Mei is a bit scared, he's determined to be on the level of Shunta and Yoku, and all three head in.
Soon after entering, Shunta falls into a hole. At the bottom is a mouth which could eat him. As he holds on for dear life, he begs for help. Yoku tells him he and Mei are going on ahead, and that they'll find an Imagine Brave so Shunta's sacrifice isn't in vain. This infuriates Shunta enough that he charges out of the hole. In fact, that was Yoku's intent all along. Mei is very impressed.
Next, the group has to cross over rocks to reach the next area. Shunta goes ahead, only to find the rocks he stands on keeps sinking. Finally, he reaches one which stays in place. Mei realizes that on the rock Shunta reached, there was core. Thus, the ones with core stay afloat. He and Yoku start going ahead, with an annoyed Shunta following.
After this, a strange ball making an "Ohoho" laugh starts to chase the group. Yoku realizes the only way to escape is to jump. He grabs Shunta and Mei, and improvises with his scarf to hang on, so they don't fall to their doom. The ball isn't so lucky.
In the next room, Shunta accidentally walks into a statue. The statue is of a man, and very lifelike. The group realizes the room is full of human statues. But another problem arises when X-Rares start to appear. On the wall is core, and Yoku realizes this is the enemy life they have to destroy if they want the Imagine Brave. Not wanting to turn into statues, the three put on their battle armor to go up against the X-Rares.
As a three way battle goes on, the opponent continuously summons more X-Rares each time they lose a life. Mei and Yoku bring out their God-Kings to counterattack, and while they make progress, they're eventually destroyed. Finally Shunta sends out Exeseed and is able to deal the finishing blow.
After the battle, a card appears. All three try to grab it, but Shunta gets to it first. The others are disappointed, but Shunta reminds them that they promised whoever didn't get the Brave wouldn't have any regrets. Though, he then realizes it's a green card, and freaks out that it was for Yoku and not him.
Though the group leaves the dungeon, Shunta is still mad, and wants to go back. However, the cave seals up, and the Soul Spot moves elsewhere.
