Deep within the Amazon river basin, Sherry and Brago were in the midsts of searching for another Mamodo...one that they didn't believe deserve to remain in the tournament. Brago still believed that he was the one that deserved to be king...even if he had to work with a pathetic human to do so. But for Sherry, the hardships and troubles she was going through now was a reflection of the problems she had since her turmultuous childhood. Being the daughter of the esteemed Belmont clan, she had been forced to be pushed to her limits in order to prove her worth in deserving to be in this family. But too much failure and too much pushing from her mother drove the young girl over the edge...literally! Sherry threw herself into a river in order to escape the pain of this horrible childhood! But she was unexpectically saved by a little girl named Coco: one who was poor yet still had optimism for the future. Learning to what this girl had to say, Sherry ended up living that day, but became changed, now hoping for a better future instead of living for this horrible present. But while the situation had changed several years later, it was about to take a turn for the worse! Sherry had matured with age and was less pessimistic, but Coco remained poor and still had to fight to survive. But things were looking much better for her too: she had gotten into college and was about to improve her own life too! Sherry headed down to see her...but when she got there, she saw something she thought she would never see. The entire town was burning to the ground...all thanks to a mysterious spellbook and a "strange child" that Coco had gotten her hands on! The child, named Zolphise, explained to Sherry about the Mamodo fight and how she would be the one that would achieve ultimate victory in it no matter what! Sherry knew this Zolphis was evil and had to get Coco away, but it was too late: Coco was brainwashed by the power she posessed and was "determined" to help her win the tourney! And seeing her "friend" in the way of this power, she let Zolphis fire a "Radom" spell which should have eliminated her! But it wasn't Sherry's time either: she was saved by another Mamodo (guess who...as if it wasn't obvious) who also wanted to win the crown! With Brago by her side, Sherry's quest began...which led to her current easy victory against the tree Mamodo Pokkerio! But exhausting herself from the whole thing, Brago really had no choice but to help carry her off the former battleground. As much as he couldn't stand her, he still needed her...for the moment.
Meanwhile, back in Japan, Zatch and Kiyo just spent the day training.
