Genkishi is surprised to hear from Yamamoto that Squalo realized that their fight was staged. Genkishi questions Yamamoto's evidence, but Yamamoto merely replies that he was going to show him. Genkishi, however, warns Yamamoto that his sword was about to break. However, Yamamoto, recollecting a battle from Squalo's DVD, clashes with Genkishi, stating that the cracks on his sword were illusions. He quotes Squalo, that you had to trust your own senses when fighting against Genkishi, and that the cracks on his own sword were illusion. Yamamoto then unleashes Scontro di Rondine.
However, Yamamoto runs into a wall and gets slashed in the face by his own sword. Genkishi applauds Yamamoto for noticing the illusions, but states that if he thought that creating mere illusions on swords was all he could do, that he was incorrect. At the entrance of the Millefiore base, the renaissance squad enters, injured. The commander requests a map, but the guards reply that they would need finger authentication.
