Tsuna takes a stand and his Guardians (except Hibari) join him. Xanxus and the Varia members start getting ready for battle. The Cervello stop them from battling and announce that the battle for the Ninth's revenge, the Sky Ring Battle, would be taking place the following night. Xanxus tosses Tsuna the Sky Half Vongola Ring and then disappears in a burst of light with the rest of the Varia and the Cervello. The Cavallone arrive to help the Ninth and Reborn tells Tsuna that they were going home.
The next day, Tsuna goes to Namimori Middle School and is surprised to find it fixed. Reborn tells Tsuna that the Cervello's illusionists covered up the parts that they haven't fixed yet. Later, on the roof, Tsuna receives a good luck charm from Kyoko. Tsuna tells Kyoko that he won't lose, and is suddenly greeted by undercover Haru, Bianchi, Futa, and I-Pin. Reborn, listening to their exchange some distance away, says that Tsuna must not forget that he has to come back for that.
