kiva18_01 kiva18_02
Kiva's being beaten up really badly by Ixa. Wataru escapes the scene and vows not to fight anymore!

Back in 1986, despite Jiro's advantage and his confident in the game of pool since last week, Otoya pulls up a miracle (as predicted XD) and wins the game with a broken stick!

Back to present day, Mami is under the Seastar Fangire's threat. Megumi came to help but is helpless in protecting her friend. Where is Wataru/Kiva?

He didn't break his father's violin, but Wataru agonizes over the decision to quit fighting. Kivat Bat seems to be still down with his illness too.

With Kiva out of sight, it's up to our anti-hero Keisuke/Ixa to save the day (for that moment). But he's not after the Fangire, but the 'trophy' from its human form instead.

Keisuke even assaults the polices in order to get his hands on Sakichi Sakaguchi, and when he gets his bloody button, he lets the Fangire loose!
He is clearly out of his mind!

Back in 1986, Otoya is unable to continue the game with Jiro, as Yuri demands him to focus on persuading Mami for her audition.

Mami performs for her audition, but her great teacher Otoya is... ...falling asleep -_-

"That's the final lesson for you, to 'listen to your heart's voice'."

Mami is under attack during her archery practice again, but this time, a much determined Wataru, after hearing his father's advise from Mami comes to the rescue.
And when one is not enough, it's time to call for a family gathering!

"Garulu Saber! Basshaa Magnum! Dogga Hammer!" Kivat Bat cried for all three Arms Monsters one by one, and they give Kiva his Dogabaki form.

A revision of all his forms, Kiva uses all weapons to destroy the Seastar Fangire.

A happy ending ^^ Thanks to Wataru/Kiva, and his father's advise.
