Monster on top of Tamaki's head: Ha ha ha ha ha. I'm the all-powerful Death Armor, and these are the three rules of the Death-Death Boy Scouts:
1. Don't be a picky eater.
2. Don't sign your name to anything.
3. Don't lend anyone any money even your best friends.
4. A good offense is a good defense.
I know it's four, but get over it! Staying true to those rules and you'll make a great Death Scout. Write them in your Death Book, your Death Desk, while you listen to Death Metal. The next episode is entitled "Black and Blue" but I'm not even in it so you don't have to watch. (Tamaki smacks him with the kendo stick.)
Tamaki's father: Tamaki, you put too much power into your throat strikes. It's as if you were delivering a lethal blow against a villain. You should not be even be using throat strikes.
Tamaki: I can't use them on anyone?
Tamaki's father: Well, perhaps if you were fighting an older man, only if he's experienced in the ways of kendo, and you are at least in high school. Until then, it is off limits.
Tamaki: (thinking) He's a man. He's older. And he has kendo experience...Father, Mother, I'm in high school now. It's allowed.
This episode is based on the events from chapters 5 to the 1st half of 10 from volume 1 of the manga.
