    Just when it seemed like Kiyo had made a friend with a bookkeeper that didn't want to have anything to do with the Mamodo battles, the mysterious Apollo decided to challenge him and Zatch to a battle without telling them why! And as the situation presented itself, the duo were not doing too well against the blonde traveler and his rope-using Mamodo, Ropes. Time and again Kiyo thought he had created a strategy that could take out his opponents and get in a direct attack, but whether it was taking him face on or attacking the giant stones Rops was flinging towards them, he just couldn't stop the maneuvers Apollo threw at him. Not even the fourth spell, 'Bao Zakeruga', could emerge to at least give them something to work with! But Zatch continued to be determined, knowing that he wanted to become a kind king at all costs and against all odds, flinging himself towards the projectiles in order to protect Kiyo at all costs and fight for what he wanted! It was this determination that allowed Kiyo to wake up his own heart...and likewise, his own power, allowing him not only to refocus in fighting against Apollo, but join in the assault against the opposing duo! He knew he had to continue fighting if he wanted Zatch to become the "kind king". But Apollo remained determined as well, realizing in himself that Rops had the potential to become king and he didn't want to help him achieve it! With his new motivation to make the ladybug Mamodo a "free king", he set loose his strongest spell: "Deino Ligunoon", which threw out immense anchors to throw out their biggest wad of earth yet! But Kiyo and Zatch's power reached their peak as well, finally achieving another 'Baou Zakeruga' to block the attack and potentially beat Apollo! The affects of the attack made Kiyo believe that it wasn't over...but in reality, Apollo couldn't move a muscle to use the book anymore. The battle was over...and the duo realized not only they had a long way to go to achieve their own dreams, but that their spells became stronger as the battle went on due to how much they put into them. And with this, Ropes and Apollo chose to go on their way, continuing to wander the world as they had, but with a new determination for fighting in the Mamodo tournament. Kiyo and Zatch probably had a new purpose as well...but all they got from going home is Umgaon and Suzy claiming to repair that wall!moreless

    In this episode, it is a big battle between Zatch and Kiyo vs. Rops and Apollo. I like this episode. It was a very good episode. This episode was well written. I really like Apollo's character and his relationship with Rops. There is only one little detail I did not like. I did not like how Zatch and Kiyo and Apollo and Rops just called it a draw at the end. I think either Zatch and Kiyo should have won and decided not to burn their book, or Apollo and Rops win and decide not to burn Kiyo's and Zatch's Book.moreless

  • This episode was a huge disappointment. I expected it to be more animated. Rops spells were less than impressive. Bad dubbing/editing of dialogue

    This episode opens with Zatch amd Kiyo in the middle of their battle with Apollo and Rops, as Rops is poised in front of Kiyo's red spell book. Kiyo gets his book back, Apollo casts Rigron,which launches several boulders towards Zatch and Kiyo, Kiyo calls "rashield!", Apollo knew it was going to happen, and he effectively dodges the electrically charged boulders. Kiyo stands dismayed as he begins to comprehend that Apollo possesses precognitive abilities. Kiyo tells Zatch to prepare for a spell Apollo can't dodge. Apollo wonders what's coming his way. Kiyo yells "Bao Zakerga!" suddenly to no avail. Kiyo is surprised the fourth spell didn't work. Apollo is surprised as well and Zatch asks Kiyo whats wrong. He wonders why Bao Zakerga isnt workin the first time he tries, just as the battle against Kikuropu. Apollo warns Kiyo not to hold back on his account. He claims that this is the first time he actually wanted to participate in a mamodo battle. Apollo casts Rigron, Rops grips the ground and his ropes emerge from the earth raising multiple boulders that Rops then destroys. Kiyo is desperate as he thinks to himself "What can I do? He can predict my next spell, Rashield and /Jikerdor won't work." Rops destroys the boulder Kiyo was hiding behind. Another "Rigron" destroys the remaining boulders. Just as Kiyo thinks it can't get any worse a big boulder is thrown towards him! Zatch headbutts it away. Zatch reminds Kiyo to not give up because of his promise to Kolulu. He begs Kiyo to help him, as Kiyo is the only one who can read his spell book. Kiyo regains his strength of heart. Kiyo lets out a giant scream "YAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!" The red book glows strongly again, Kiyo launches Zaker and dusts surrounds Apollo which gives him an idea. "Rigron!" Kiyo jumps at Apollo and Rops throws him, Kiyo luaches Zaker again, as Zatch is behind Apollo but Apollo dodges. Another Rigron and more boulders thrown at kiyo and Zatch. Zaker destroys them. Apollo dodges another Zaker. He realizes Kiyo's desire to help Zatch become king is strong. He beefs up his efforts. He tells Kiyo his(kiyo's) spells are getting stronger. Kiyo points his finger as if to cast a spell, Apollo and Rops jump away from each other. Kiyo hits Rops dead on with Zaker and Apollo is near tears. Rops demonstrates his strength and gets back up. Apollo decides to help Rops become King. Zatch explains what knid of king he wishes to become and asks Rops what kind of king he wishes to be. *flashback* on how apollo met rops and wont go into detail as this is getting long. Zatch says Rops will become a good king. Apollo launches Rops' strongest spell, Dino Rigron, a boulder as big a house is hoisted into the air above Kiyo and rops controls it with chains with anchors at the end, inserted on the boulder. Apollo is having trouble maintaining the spell. Kiyo tries to determine which spell to use. He decides to try the fourth spell. Apollo looses the boulder. Kiyo is confident the 4th spell will work and he cast it successfully.The lightning dragon bites into the boulder and envelops it. thus destroying it. Both bookkeepers are exhausted and promise each other a rematch. They realize the books and spells gain strength as their heart grow wearier. By the way, they are now sitting on a green sheet and its sunset time. Kiyo arrives home at night to find Suzy and Ponygon at Kiyo's gate's wall, and it is back in one piece, although it looks like it will collapse any second now, and it does collapse. Apollo and Rops move onto their next journey and Apollo misses Kiyo already.moreless
