Lal Mirch questions Giannini on where they could train, the latter replying there was a basement, and taking them there. Haru and Kyoko wonder who the "bitter, pretty lady" was. As they reach the basement, Lal Mirch questions Tsuna, Yamamoto, and Gokudera if they were ready, to which they all replied in the affirmative. Lal Mirch then informs them of the ring's fighting techniques. Yamamoto suddenly sheepishly states that he didn't understand a thing, to which Lal Mirch replied simply by punching him into the wall. Gokudera then attempts to ignite his Flame, but fails. Lal Mirch dismisses it, saying that the first time, it was by luck, but is interrupted by Gokudera's ring igniting. Yamamoto also ignites his ring easily. Lal Mirch asks if Tsuna can open his, but when Tsuna begins to deny it, he gets punched into the wall. Lal Mirch then states that if they couldn't ignite their ring Flames and open the box she gave him in an hour, she wouldn't train them anymore. Tsuna, however, still cannot ignite his ring. At the Millefiore headquarters in Italy, Byakuran states to himself that he wanted to meet Tsuna- Namimori Junior High, Class 2-A.
