Precious Moments in Time (全てが大事な時間) is the 201st episode of the Katekyō Hitman Reborn! anime series.
The battle between the two bosses rage on, with Byakuran continuing to crush Tsuna with his Transparent Giant Hand technique. Byakuran expresses his disappointment in Tsuna, saying that he expected Tsuna to put up a better fight, and points out that the size of a person's Flames is equilant to the resolve of the said person. He tells Tsuna that this could only mean that Tsuna's resolve about wanting to return his friends safetly back to the past, was extremely weak.
This statement makes Tsuna think about all the people who had been dragged into this vicious battle from the past. Tsuna's desire to defeat Byakuran and protect his friends grow, and Tsuna, once again lights his Ring with Flames.
Soon, the entire area is lit up by this incredible release of Flames. Everyone watches this exchange, overwhelmed by the Flames being released by the two bosses.
Bel and Mukuro seem more confident as they watch their boss hold their own against his Millefiore counterpart. The flames being released, rises even further, and when it reached an incredibly high output, a gong like sound rings across the battlefield.
Byakuran excitedly says it's here, Tsuna seems taken aback at what just happened. Two Barriers made up of Sky Flames covers both, Byakuran and Tsuna. The reverberating continues, and everyone around, aside from Byakuran, tries to figure out what on earth the sound meant. Squalo notices, and points out the noise came from Tsuna's and Byakuran's Rings. It was then that Dino realized that the rings were resonating.
At the campsite, Yuni's Pacifier destroyed its protective cover and immediately started releasing a furious amount of Sky Flames, much to Yuni's shock. The flames being released soon formed a barrier around Yuni, similar to the barriers formed around Byakuran and Tsuna.
Her friends and allies, seem taken aback by what was happening. They hear the reverberating sound as well, and figure out that it was coming from the Pacifier. Her allies ask her what's going on, but Yuni was just as lost as they were.
At the battlefield, Tsuna's allies realize that none of their attacks had any effect on the now expanding barriers. Soon they notice another barrier floating towards the other two, and much to their disdain, they realize that the person inside that barrier was none other than Yuni.
Mukuro notices that the Vongola Ring, the Mare Ring and the Arcobaleno Pacifier were the cause of this phenomenon, and realizes that the Sky Elements of the Tri-ni-set were gathering together. He wonders if the strain put on the rings during the incredible release of flames by Tsuna and Byakuran earlier, cause them three to come together.
As the barriers get closer together, Gokudera realizes that Yuni's Flame barrier was attempting to join with Tsuna's and Byakuran's. The allies realize the gravity of the situation, and begin an assault to try and stop this from happening.
Byakuran greets Yuni in his usual sinister, yet carefree way, Tsuna, now finding it hard to put two words together, asks her to stay back, Yuni calls for Tsuna in concern, but is greeted by Byakuran's sinister laugh. Byakuran begins explaining the nature behind this phenomenon. He says that when the Tri-ni-set Sky Elements release an incredible amount of flames, it creates the unique situation they were in now. He says that it's a special stage where the three of them wont be interrupted, that its a stage for the Tri-ni-set Sky elements alone. He then says quite casually, that now that Yuni was summoned, he no longer had any use for Tsuna, so soon, it'll just be Yuni and him, and once again begins to crush Tsuna.
Yuni begs Byakuran to stop, Byakuran glares at her, and asks her how she could tell him to stop at this stage. He starts to blame Yuni for everything that had happened, saying that it was her that had forced the Vongola Members to risk their lives to protect her, even when Yuni herself knew that they had no chance of beating him. He says that her pointless escape, only served to increase the number of casualties that the battle had produced. He says that she couldn't be any more selfish than she had been.
Yuni listens to Byakuran's speech, looking to be in pain as Byakuran continues to taunt her. While Byakuran was doing this, something glowed under Yuni's cloak. Yuni tries to hide it, but Byakuran had noticed, and his eyes had an excited glint as he asked her what that was. Yuni whispers "not yet", which once again catches Byakuran's notice, and although Yuni tried to protect whatever it was that she was hiding, the objects soon wriggled free, and fell to the ground.
These items turned out to be the Arcobaleno Pacifiers, but there was something strange about the Pacifiers, all of them had something sticking out of them.
Reborn explains that he had heard that the Sky Arcobaleno had the power to restore the other Arcobaleno from the verge of death, but even he admits that he had no idea that the Arcobaleno would be revived from their own Pacifers. Upon hearing this, Bel shows a bit of relief that Mammon would be revived, and Lal seemed happy that, if everything goes according to plan, Colonnello too would be revived.
Byakuran and Kikyo then realizes that the real reason that Yuni had escaped, was to buy time for the Arcobaleno to be revived. For this reason, she escaped from the Millefiore and begged Tsuna to protect her, and the pacifires of her brethren. Soon they realize, that if the Arcobaleno were to be revived, the balance of the Tri-ni-set would be restored, and if the Arcobaleno at full power join forces with Tsuna, defeating Byakuran could become a reality.
Tsuna's eyes lose the color it gains when he enters Hyper Dying Will Mode, and Byakuran, smirks as he releases the technique. Tsuna stays motionless for a few seconds, before collapsing onto the floor, and soon, the trademark Dying Will Flames on his forehead disappears as well.
Reborn, surprisingly agrees with Byakuran, a comment which surprised both Byakuran and Yuni. But Reborn continues, saying that the Arcobaleno aren't the ones who were going to defeat him, that job belong to his student, Tsuna.
The girls, and the others at the camp rush into the battlefield. Haru immediately sees a person lying motionless on the ground, and to much to their disbelief, they realize that it was Tsuna. They stare at the motionless figure, unable to completely comprehend the situation.
Reborn tells Byakuran, not to underestimate Tsuna, Reborn then turns his attention onto Tsuna, and starts speaking to him. He tells Tsuna that he had to defeat Byakuran, but still, Tsuna remained motionless.
Mukuro looks at Reborn and thinks back to his battle with Tsuna, and thinks that what Reborn was doing, was the same thing he did back then. He notices that whenever Tsuna was in a pinch, Reborn always appeared to guide him, and encourage him.
Reborn explains that the revival of the Arcobaleno takes more than Yuni's power, he says's that she had to burn her "Life Flame", and this will lead to the destruction of her body, and result in her death.
Yuni, was surprised that Reborn knew about this, but Reborn says that it wasn't too hard to guess, as she was exactly like her grandmother, Luce.
Byakuran who had listened quietly to Reborn's explanation speaks up, he tells Yuni that he cant allow her to do such a foolish thing, as her life belonged to him. He takes a step towards Yuni but is interrupted by someone coughing.
Tsuna coughs feebly, as he tries to get up, he, in a weak voice, tells Byakuran that he won't let him have Yuni. Byakuran laughs at Tsuna, and points out how much he was shaking. He scorns Tsuna, telling him that he could feel Tsuna shaking, even where he was, and mentions that it's probably because his body remembers the beating he had just taken.
Byakuran tells Tsuna that it was unlucky of him to have woken up in his situation. He mentions that he knows a lot about Tsuna, everything about him being a normal middle school student who failed in both academics and athletics, till he met a powerful hitman who thrust him into the dangerous world of the Mafia. Byakuran goes onto talk about Tsuna's battle with Mukuro, and eventually the battle with the Varia. He tells Tsuna that he had been extremely unlucky, and once he came into the future, his luck had finally run out. Byakuran goes onto say that, if Tsuna hadn't been bought to the future, he wouldn't have had to suffer as much as he did, and tells Tsuna to curse has own fate for everything that had happened.
Byakuran, who didn't seem impressed, tells Tsuna that his was of looking at things was certainly an interesting interpretation, but that Tsuna should realize, that none of what he said will matter, once he kills him.
Byakuran takes out a Mini White Dragon, Tsuna's allies immediately realizes the danger, and Gokudera makes a desperate attempt at stopping Byakuran by firing his Flame Arrow. However the barrier holds, and Byakuran still stands.
Byakuran, completely ignoring what was happening outside, wonders a bit, and decides, that at Tsuna's current state, sending the Mini White Dragon through the heart would be enough to kill him. Tsuna, who was out of Hyper Dying Will Mode, and so had his original personality, panics, and asks Byakuran to wait, Byakuran, however, doesn't wait and throws the Mini Dragon right at Tsuna. The attack hits him straight at the heart, and Tsuna, as allies watch stunned, falls.
Byakuran laughs at the fallen Tsuna, and savoring the moment, turns to Yuni and tells her that her savior is now dead. But he is proved wrong by a loud scream.
Tsuna see's the ring that had saved him and begins to realize that everything that had happened up till this point had played a part, and led up to everything he's done. He says that he wouldn't give up a moment which he had spent in the future, the pain, the suffering, the fun, none of it. Tsuna realizes that he was here now because of the people there for him, whether it was Kyoko and Haru's support through doing the chores and helping him, and the other Guardians by being there, or Spanner helping Tsuna perfect his X-Burner, or the Vongola Boxes left to the current Guardians by Future Tsuna, or Kyoko helping Tsuna understand Natsu's intentions, he realizes that everyone of the people he had met had helped him get by, and that he wouldn't be here now if it hadn't been for their support. Tsuna questions what Byakuran had said about him being unlucky, and says that he was wrong, because he felt extremely lucky, he says that he tresures every moment he had spent since he had come to the future. Tsuna finally says that his flames could only have been born in this world, the world Byakuran rules. Tsuna's Wool Mittens light up, and he continues saying that Byakuran had hurt many people, and Tsuna, now back in Hyper Dying Will Mode, promises to make Byakuran pay for all that he has done.
Byakuran laughs at Tsuna, and points out, no matter what Tsuna had said, he had already proven that his power was far superior to Tsuna's. Tsuna's X-Gloves as a voice asks Byakuran whether he was sure of what he had just said.
First up was G., who comments on the pathetic look that Gokudeara had on his face, Lambo who once again meets Lampo, nosily starts to comment on Lampo's appearance, Lampo, who doesn't like kid, asks Lambo to keep it down, and points out his dislike of kids, specially runny nosed cow kids.
Daemon Spade, who had appeared from Mukuro's ring, states that it's a pity, that Tsuna, even when he has his back against the wall, refuses to change his stance, and notes that the Vongola do not need that kind of weakness.
Lampo says that what Tsuna said, was exactly the thing that their own boss had often said. Asari states that this Generation of Guardians, truly had inherited their wills.
The voice, which was coming from within the barrier, agrees with G. Byakuran was confused as to what was happening, he looks around for the source of the voice, but couldn't find it.
Tsuna's ring now glows brightly, as the voice now addresses him. It tells Tsuna that he agrees with Tsuna's way of thinking, and goes on to say that it would like to help out it's true successor personally, but is unable to do that. The crest on Tsuna's gloves now glow brightly, and is projected outside the Gloves, and from the Gloves emerge the founder and the First Generation Vongola Boss, Giotto, who tells Tsuna that he'll unleash him.
