“Kan’u Exterminates A Monster”
“Kan’u, Bakemono o Taiji Sen to Suru no Koto”
The group saves a timid, young lady from bandits, who, unknown to them is, Toutaku, the Governess of Zhao. She tells the group she came to investigate a rumor that a monster has been threatening a village to bring food to a temple every week. After Toutaku & the village leader plead with them, they agree to go to the temple to stop the monster. Aisha & Rinrin are too scared to face the monster after hearing a ghost story from Sei & faint when they finally meet it. Sei realizes that the ‘monster’ is actually a woman & tries to fight her only to be knocked out swiftly by her opponent’s powerful strike. They regroup along with Toutaku accompanying them to finally meet the ‘monster’ herself, whose name is Ryofu. After a fierce fight between the four, they all stop when Toutaku tries to save a puppy from a falling tree where Aisha and Rinrin are forced to stop the tree. Ryofu, later reveals that she was only threatening the village for food since it was for her many pet dogs. At this time, Toutaku’s strategist, Ka Ku finally finds Toutaku, revealing her secret. At her palace, Toutaku forgives Ryofu, in exchange Ryofu will remove the giant rock she placed at the village gate to scare the villagers. Ryofu’s dogs also will be living in the palace where they will be trained to become guard dogs to help defend the kingdom against thieves after Toutaku pleads with Ka Ku, who reluctantly agrees.
