The Enemy Who Should Be Defeated
Cozarto is surprised at the Primo's Guardians suddenly appearing, and shouts G.'s name in shock. G. introduces everyone simply as Giotto's guardians and plans to leave with Cozarto to find Primo, leaving the other guardians to fight off the Simon Famiglia's attackers, as they do not want Daemon Spade to figure out that the guardians are helping the Simon. Cozarto thanks them and the memory ends.
Back to the present, all of the conscious members of both the current Simon and Vongola Famiglias are shocked, except for Enma, who appears to be brooding over this. Daemon Spade is outraged after realizing that Primo saw through his plan to turn the Simon and Vongola against each other. Adelheid and Kaoru are shocked as they realize that Cozarto wasn't killed after all, and Reborn comments that the handed down history of the Simon appears to have been rewritten. Tsuna is thrilled to discover that Primo and Cozarto's friendship wasn't broken after all, and Daemon Spade is furious that Primo tricked him and faked Cozarto's death. Then Reborn wonders, why haven't they heard about Cozarto after the battle ended because he should've lived long after the battle ended if he wasn't assassinated. Everyone is surprised once again, and Daemon Spade comments that even he hasn't found any record of Cozarto after the battle. Everyone is silent for a moment. Then the silence is broken by Yamamoto's laughter, and comment that everything must be fine, then, if Cozarto had lived after all. Tsuna is taken aback by Yamamoto's cheeriness and Gokudera is irritated while Reborn just says that he is as simple as ever.
Suddenly, Adelheid and Kaoru cry out in pain, and the Vindice begin to take them away for losing their challenges. Tsuna and Yamamoto shout out Adelheid and Kaoru's names in shock and horror, and then Adelheid, crying, asks Tsuna for a favor: save Enma, because his heart is broken so badly that he doesn't even care that he's been lied to by Daemon Spade anymore. The only one who can redeem him now is Tsuna because Enma believed in him up until the Inheritance Ceremony, and while Adelheid doesn't expect Tsuna to forgive her for everything the Simon have done, she says sorry before her mouth, along with the rest of her body, is chained up, and is taken away. Tsuna yells out Adelheid's name in grief as Kaoru groans in pain. Yamamoto shouts his name, and then Kaoru, as he is taken away, says that they should be friends from now on, if it's okay. Yamamoto says his name again, this time in grief and shock, and then yells it again after he's gone.
Tsuna and Gokudera bow their heads in grief as Yamamoto grits his teeth. Then Daemon Spade begins to chuckle. He declares that people led astray by the past are just foolish children, and that while he was surprised by the differences between his and Primo's past, he would continue with his plan, because to him, the future was what mattered. Gokudera and Tsuna are angry at this, but before any of them can do anything, Yamamoto suggests that Tsuna take a little break, and declares that Daemon, the ghost of the past that brought so much suffering to the Vongola and Simon, would be killed by him.
Tsuna is shocked at the revelation of Yamamoto's fury, and Daemon laughs at this, claiming that Yamamoto is getting cocky and that someone like him couldn't possibly kill him (Daemon). Mist rushes towards Yamamoto, and as Tsuna, alarmed, realizes that Daemon's body is blurring, Reborn revealing that it was an illusion. Yamamoto is unforgiving and motionless, and asks Daemon if he was ready. Then he calls Jirou and Kojirou's names as he unsheathes his swords and displays the twelfth form of his Shigure Soen Ryu Stance Twelve: Sadachi: Kirisame. Hibari watches sharply as Daemon appears to be sliced into pieces from the many slashes. Tsuna and Gokudera express their surprise at this. Then Daemon laughs, revealing his survival, and only Tsuna and Gokudera are surprised. He comments on how similar his style of naming attacks is to Yamamoto's and that such an attack could not kill him.
Yamamoto has already known this, and expresses that he learned it from Genkishi, and used it to "sniff Daemon out." It turns out that Jirou, taking the form of his left blade, has an amazing sense of smell that instantly comprehends what's in the air he touches as Yamamoto's blade. This enables Yamamoto to figure out just where Daemon is hiding. Daemon is interested, but boasts that even if Yamamoto did find where he was hiding, he'd easily be able to avoid his blade. Yamamoto replies that that was why he used two swords, and that his twelfth style, combined with both blades, was the perfect counter against illusions. At the end, he figures out where Daemon is hiding, and uses Kojirou's blade to get ready for Shigure Soen Ryu's other 12th stance: Udachi: Kirisame.
