Canalo saves a woman, Mao, from disguised Drunns at an autumn festival. She is wowed by his skills and asks him if he would like to accompany her somewhere and meet her father. Canalo assumes this means marriage and he gladly accepts her invitation.
Over at Chez Tatsui, Ui struggles to come up with a new video idea. Papa Naohisa does not help when he gives them a very unfunny idea.
Just then, Oto calls Melto and asks him to meet. Koh, Asuna and Ui think they’re going on a date. But it’s actually to follow Canalo and Mao.
Oto says every time Canalo falls for a girl and tells her about it, it usually ends up being a huge misunderstanding. So she is worried for her brother.
Koh and Asuna pop up behind them and the four of them continue to follow Canalo and Mao.
Canalo and Mao stop in front of a bake shop where a pâtissier is putting the finishing touches on a wedding cake. Mao says that is her dream. Canalo says a wedding cake is also his dream.
Koh, Asuna and Melto tell Oto maybe Canalo’s finally found the one. But Oto is still suspicious.
Mao brings Canalo to her father who runs his own dojo. Mao’s father doesn’t think Canalo has what it takes to inherit the dojo. He says he has been preparing Mao all her life so she can be his successor, but now she wants to throw it away for some saccharine dream.
Mao says she is serious about her dream. Canalo challenges Mao’s father to show he does have what it takes. Oto thinks Canalo seems different today.
Suddenly, Mao collapses as life energy flies out of her. Koh, Melto and Asuna follow the life energy to look for the Minosaur born out of Mao.
Towa and Bamba have already found the Minosaur. Kureon points out that it is not fair for them to be fighting with weapons when the Minosaur is unarmed. The brothers toss their weapons and say they can defeat it without them.
But the Minosaur is skilled in karate and easily takes on Towa and Bamba. Koh, Melto and Asuna arrive to help. But Canalo speeds in saying he will take care of this himself.
Canalo takes on the Minosaur with a lot of energy and seems to be gaining the upper hand. But the Minosaur uses a sword to put up a fluffy wall around itself. Canalo tries attacking from above, but the Minosaur is able to shoot right at him.
Canalo is forced to dehenshin. Kureon laughs at Canalo being unable to counter the Minosaur’s Blindfold Technique. Kureon and the Minosaur leave.
Canalo asks the others to leave the Minosaur to him so he can avenge the woman he wants to marry.
Waizuru commends Kureon and the Minosaur for their good work so far. But he suddenly gets an amazing idea and sets out to make it happen.
Down by the creek, Canalo tries to figure out a way to defeat the Minosaur’s Blindfold Technique. The others arrive and offer to help. They are a team and all part of the Ryusoul Tribe, so they should work together.
While Oto prays for her brother’s success, the others help act as the Minosaur and its barrier. Canalo can’t seem to get through them until he sees a fish jump up out of the water. That gives him an idea and he decides to leap up into the air and flop around like a fish.
He is finally able to get through and they agree this is the move that’ll get the Minosaur. Oto cries happy tears.
Later that night, Koh gives CosmoSoul to Canalo to borrow in his battle. Koh says in exchange, Canalo better add an extra course at the wedding reception.
Next morning, the others take on Drunns, leaving the Minosaur to Canalo.
Canalo is able to attack inside the Minosaur’s wall. But it suddenly embiggens. Melto and Asuna hurry back to dojo to check on her. Canalo calls on Mosa Rex.
Mao’s father berates her and drives her further into despair until all her life energy has been sucked out. She falls unconscious. Turns out this is actually Waizuru disguised as Mao’s father. Melto and Asuna arrive and Waizuru leaves. They inform Canalo of what’s happened.
Canalo uses CosmoSoul to form Kishiryu Neptune CosmoRaptor and he is able to defeat the Minosaur for good.
Back at the dojo, Canalo faces off against his future father-in-law and he is able to kick him in the face. Mao’s father now acknowledges Canalo as worthy of inheriting the dojo.
Mao says that she can now go to Paris with her boyfriend to learn how to become a patissier.
Everyone is shocked. But it turns out Mao had told him upfront. Only, Canalo did not hear as he was daydreaming about their wedding. Melto realizes the Minosaur’s other non-karate movies were just patissier skills.
Canalo realizes his mistake and tries to laugh it off. But Oto tells him to stop laughing and give her back the tears she cried for him.
It was a fun, but very predictable episode. Like, as soon as they saw the wedding cake and then her father talking about her inheriting the dojo, I just knew. It was all about Mao wanting to follow her, literally, sweet dreams instead of taking over at the dojo. It was obvious Canalo misunderstood again, as is his character. But the rest of the situation was all expected.
I didn’t realize the Minosaur’s wall thing was frosting until later in the episode though. Lol That would’ve made it all the more obvious if I did notice earlier lol.
I did not, however, expect Waizuru to use Mao’s father to drive her to despair. I thought that was actually a pretty good twist and helps build Waizuru’s character as well.
Also awesome whenever they get to film in that traditional Edo village.
So I do kind of hate that the story was so obvious, but even so, it was still a fun episode overall. The ending and big reveal to Canalo was funny. And even better was Oto Rider-kicking her big brother for making her cry tears of joy for him. Lol And I would think him just being too marriage-crazy in general.
