Kai pays Yuri a visit at the hospital and collects the new Dranzer Takao left before the start of the tournament (the dialog has been altered in the English dub and the versions based on it; on the original dub, Kai simply says "Yuri..." and spots Dranzer on his bed. In the altered version, an unseen woman tells Kai that visiting hours are almost over, but Kai (shown from behind) simply answers "I'm not leaving". Before his mouth is shown, he also says "Tala" (Yuri's altered name in the English dub and the versions based on it) and asks "Can you hear me" when in the original Japanese dub he said his former team mate's name). Takao and the rest of the team are practicing furiously to guarantee a check in the win column for tomorrow's big match. Takao thinks no one on the team has the same skill with the Hard Metal Beyblade and he refuses to choose any of his teammates to Blade in the penultimate round of the tournament, insisting instead to blade both rounds himself. Meanwhile, Kai tries to practice with his new Dranzer, but is unable to control it (eventually Drazner hits some windows, which sends glass pieces flying towards Kai; this was for some reason cut from the English dub and the versions based on it). F Sangre's coach Romero, who was fishing nearby, finds Kai and knocks Dranzer out with his beyblade. He then offers himself to help Kai gain control of Dranzer and challenges him into a match. Kai eventually uses his will to defeat Brooklyn and Takao to regain control of Dranzer and win the battle. He then meets Takao and the others by the river where they were practicing.
