Tsuna waves to his Guardians and Reborn, arriving at their location. Suddenly, Leviathan arrives at the Vongolas' location, commenting that his opponent was "the kid with the perm". As he prepares to attack, however, other members of the Varia arrive, telling Leviathan to calm down, Squalo expressing his anger that they tricked him. Suddenly, Xanxus arrives and tells Squalo to move out of the way, making eye contact with Tsuna. Xanxus, preparing to use his Flame of Wrath and kill Tsuna, is interrupted by Iemitsu, who states that they received a letter from the Ninth, saying that since he originally thought Tsuna was to be Decimo, but now deciding that Xanxus would become Decimo, that Tsuna and Xanxus would have the traditional Vongola battle, where wielders of the same type of ring would fight in a one-on-one battle.
