Episode Summary

EDIT
Chuu places the knives in the ring, and tells Yusuke the rules. They each stand with their feet to the knives, and whoever steps out of bounds first dies. Meanwhile, they punch each other inside. So, it's truly a test of a endurance. Yusuke steps up to the challenge. The announcer states that it's illegal to make up rules during the fight, but after the crowd cheers, the commitee approves the deathmatch. The men begin fighting, one taking turns punching the other. In the stands, Keiko can't stand to watch the fight any longer, and after Shiziru makes a sarcastic comment about Yusuke, she runs off. Shiziru follows her, and soon they're lost in a catacomb of hallways inside the arena. Meanwhile, Sakyo asks Toguro if his other teammates have arrived yet. Toguro doesn't know. Then, we see a man in a black cloak and a metal mouth-mask dodge some guards by apparently. . .blowing them up. His name is Karasu, and he's a member of the Toguro Team. Back in the hallways, Shiziru loses sight of Keiko. Some monsters see Shiziru and start to pursue her, but Sakyo appears from a corner and leads Shiziru out of danger. He tells her to be careful, and then dissapears. Keiko eventually finds her way out of the hallway, and gets down to the ring to watch Yusuke. Chuu and Yusuke are still going at it, and they're each looking worse by the second. Suddenly, Chuu goes for a headbutt, and Yusuke counters with his own. It's a startling finish, and Chuu falls over. The announcer finishes the count, and Yusuke is declared the winner. Team Urameshi has won their first round. Chuu doesn't seem satisfied, however, and demands that Yusuke finish him off. Yusuke declines -- he wants to fight Chuu again when they're both in better shape. Chuu smiles, and nods. Meanwhile, the incomplete Toguro Team watches Yusuke from high above the ring. Kuwabara is busy telling Keiko that the whole reason that they've come here is to have a real fight with Toguro. She asks what the point is, and Kuwabara tells her that they don't have a choice. Yusuke locks eyes with Toguro, and the tension builds.moreless
