Episode Guide
Playing with Fire Pt. 2


Retsu is eating his corndog while he is encountered by both Miyu and Kiryu, as they thank him for purifying them when Jade was under their influence of being Trauma Danneggiatos. Retsu said that it wasn't really a problem with purifying the corrupted lapises, as Manatsu calls out to him and asks if he wants to go to the arcade with her and Fuga, as they are gonna play Dance Dance Revolution. Retsu decides to join in the fun as he goes off with the two, as Jade watches him go off when he holds a similar red lapis which appears to be Retsu's actual lapis.

When Retsu and his friends come back from the Arcade, Retsu then finds out that his lapis is missing as he is then transported to a dark area, where he is greeted by Jade, as Jade grips onto his lapis which makes a black spot in the middle, actually making Retsu's chest hurt. Retsu demands him to stop, as it is redeemed useless while he loses his purification powers. Jade teases him negatively, as he even insults him and calls him a "weak piece of trash". The insults results to him becoming unstable, losing control of himself entirely. Retsu is reborn as Dark Retsu, under Jade's influence. Jade demands for Dark Retsu to follow his orders or else, as Dark Retsu is then transported back to Lapistoria. When Manatsu notices the look and appearance of Retsu, he starts lashing out at his friends and eventually fuses his own powers with a nearby Danneggiato, which fuses him to become a Gaiyou Danneggiato having the same name as who he appears to be reborn as. Suiri, going out for a walk, notices the Danneggiato, as she notices Hiumi seeing the Danneggiato, as she finds out that Retsu has created the Danneggiato himself, as more company on Tsugidoka's side comes to help.
