The girls' kendo meet continues with one victory on the board for Muroe High. Despite her inexperience, Miya's ferocious shinai is a force to be reckoned with, and Captain Kirino is no pushover either. It's a tight race until Tamaki reemerges as the bespectacled "Bureiba" to battle in the fifth and final match. But is Tamaki's weak disguise enough to mask her superior abilities?
