#49 - Principles of Victory
Dec 8, 2003(JST)
Garland is seen in his preparing room, staring at a locked book. He unlocks it and wows to defeat Takao for the sake of his family honor. Meanwhile, Takao is at the corridor, standing by a wall, with Dragoon slamming that same wall and Takao's feet. The rest of the G Revolutions team discuss Takao's chances considering Garland is probably as powerful as Brooklyn. Hiro speaks with Garland and he explains he is battling for the name of his family, not for BEGA. He also reveals that the book he just unlocked contains the Seabald's family code. He then recalls his siblings sports achievements and vows to join them as the number one in their respective sports. Meanwhile, Takao has a training match against Daichi, Rei, Max and Kyojyu and tells them he is confident of his victory. As the final Justice 5 battle starts, Garland is confident and has a fierce fight with Takao. Throughout the battle, Garland recites the principles of his family, which makes him stronger. Eventually, he jumps and punches Takao in the face, with Apollon mimicking his move against Dragoon. Takao manages to hold on, taking the punch (the image of Garland's fist on Takao's face was cut from the English dub and the versions based on it). Eventually, Takao explains he beyblades for the fun of the sport, while Garland explains he plays only for victory. Takao says he wants to fight the real Garland, not a book of rules. Garland accepts the challenge and they get back to the battle, with Garland now fighting without his family's principles. Eventually, the crowd starts cheering for both of them and Boris observes, seemingly confused (for some reason, this was not shown in the English dub and the versions based on it). They head for their special attacks (for some reason, parts of the cutscene of Garland special attack were cut from the English dub and the versions based on it) and Takao wins. They both shake hands and congratulate each other for having a "great fight" and Boris breaks his champagne cup, furious (for some reason, the breaking cup was cut from the English dub and the versions based on it).
