The ninth episode of the anime series Battle Spirits Double Drive.
Yoku gets to try out his Imagine Brave, when the others are tricked by a Battler of Darkness.
Shunta is nagging Eto to find another Soul Spot, but she hasn't been able to. He's even willing to convert his deck to green just to use the one Yoku found. However, he remembers that his green cards are still back in his home world.
While Yoku is keeping away from the comotion, Mei comes over to see him. As Shunta was mentioning his own world, Mei asks Yoku what his home was like. Yoku explains that he's a member of the famous Albatrosa family. In his family, the first thing a child gets to hold is a card, and they're raised to be heroic battlers. Before even getting to battle, each child is put through physical training as well as being taught about battling. Yoku believes that he made it as far as he did because his older brother, Zark, gave him motivation. As his brother was the strongest in the family, he was a distant goal for Yoku to reach.
Eventually, some children who aren't up to the task drop out, but those who remain get to battle each other. Yoku faces one of his cousins, and is shocked that his cousin predicted his combo and stopped it. As it turned out, this cousin actually cheated by reading Yoku's notes when he forgot to close the door all the way. Yoku is angered by this, but it gives him determination to win.
Back in real time, Shunta appears, telling Yoku and Mei that they're heading off after more Soul Spots. Soon after the group leaves, unaware that they're being watched by Battlers of Darkness, they spot a trailer. Assuming it's a peddler, they stop by to get water. The man who runs the ship, Azasu, appears to be very kind. He quickly offers them a drink and anything else they want. However, the drink he gave them was drugged and they all fall asleep.
Azasu, actually a Battler of Darkness in disguise, plans to take the three 12 God-Kings. However, Yoku only pretended to fall asleep, and stands in his way. The two go outside to battle, and Yoku realizes this is a chance to try out his Imagine Brave.
While Yoku and Azasu battle, Mofumofu struggles to wake everyone else up. Once he succeeds, they come out to watch the battle and encourage Yoku. Yoku is of course determined already, knowing that the Albatrosa name is at stake. He brings out Gale-Phoenix, as well as his brave, Wind Demon-God. He braves it to the left, and finishes the battle quickly. After the battle, Shunta is even more excited to get his own Imagine Brave.
From a distance, Shaushau is watching him.
