  • Exciting

    This episode continues the great action from the last episode. The Zatch and Kiyo scenes were funny, like the one where Kiyo shoves Zatch into the book bag. The battle was also great! Zatch's lightning power and Reycom's Ice power make the battle an intense and great battle. I'm glad that they have a enemy with such good powers this early in the series though. I was glad they used the second spell because it is a good protection and kind of attack spell. Overall, this was a really good episode. It shows us the first use of the second spell as well as what happens when a spell book is hit.moreless
  • cool episode about zatch and friends

    As the episode begins, Kiyo is once again looking through Zatch's spell book, attempting to puzzle out the second spell, Rashield. But he has little luck, and soon abandons the task. When Zatch announces that he'll be accompanying Kiyo to school, the teenager is alarmed and yells at Zatch in an attempt to keep the Mamado from following him. Zatch does not take this well, and demands to know what he's supposed to do by himself. Kiyo, ever the genius, quickly whips up a small cardboard doll called the Volcan 300 to keep Zatch occupied while he slips out to school. Though Zatch adores the toy, he follows Kiyo anyway, bringing the Volcan 300 along for the ride.

    Kiyo is annoyed to discover that because of the bank incident that occurred the previous day, everyone is convinced he's some kind of freakish hero and therefore everyone stares at him and whispers about him behind his back. The teenager is further irritated when Zatch pops up, despite Kiyo's efforts to keep the lightning Mamado at home. Suzy shows Kiyo the article, and informs him of his situation. Zatch is pleased to see that Kiyo is finally "making friends" with his classmates. Kane, the class bully, is not. He stands up and protests that Kiyo is still the same stuck-up snob that he's always been. An outraged Zatch leaps out of Kiyo's bookbag and jumps on Kane's head, yelling at him. Just as Kane is about to pound the little kid into the wall, a teacher shows up and forces Kane to go back to his seat, and takes Zatch to the nurse's office for the day (much to Kiyo's relief).

    After school, Kiyo and Zatch are walking home with Suzy. Kiyo is still dubious of his classmate's praise, and Suzy whispers to Zatch that Kiyo has "never been exactly popular". She asks Zatch to take care of him, but then Kiyo demands to know what they're talking about, and Suzy runs off. Later, Zatch talks about how much he likes Suzy. Kiyo begins to comment.

    But before Zatch can make out Kiyo's reply, their conversation is interrupted by the force of a spell knocking them both off their feet. The bank robber and his ice Mamado reappear. It turns out their names are Hosokawa (the man) and Reycom (the Mamado), and Aijikawa is out to capture Zatch and his spellbook. Kiyo refuses to let them take Zatch, and Zatch attempts to blow them away with the Volcan 300's, "rocket blasts". It doesn't work, mainly because the Volcan 300 does not have rocket blasts. Kiyo tells Zatch to run, but the ice Mamodo's Gekaw spell pushes ice crystals up through the ground behind Kiyo to block Zatch's escape.

    Kiyo asks where Hosokawa found Reycom, and after a vaguely pointless but very funny exchange between Zatch and Kiyo, Hosokawa explains how he found Reycom. The man had been a truck driver who, on one of his runs, discovered the ice Mamado eating frozen fish out of a storage warehouse's supply. Even though Hosokawa left, Reycom soon reappeared and refused to stop following the man. One day soon after, when Hosokawa was angry because his boss had fired him, Reycom offered him the spellbook. Though skeptical at first, Hosokawa soon discovered Reycom's powers and how they are fueled by anger and hatred, and set about using them for revenge and to make himself rich. He then reveals that he also wants Zatch for these purposes. Kiyo is disgusted by Hosokawa's greed, and points out that the man has used Reycom's powers for nothing but his own wants. Hosokawa claims that his Mamado is nothing more than a tool, making Kiyo and Zatch both furious. Both sides flip open their spell books, and each send Level 1 blasts (Zatch, lightning. Reykom, ice) towards each other. The blasts collide in mid-air, throwing both parties backwards. But unlike Kiyo, Hosokawa is able to send another barrage of ice towards Kiyo and Zatch right after the first one. Our heroes just barely managed to avoid it, and Kiyo realizes he can't handle his spell nearly that well. Kiyo is further surprised to see that Reycom and Hosokawa can use their second spell, "Brezuto", and Kiyo's right arm is frozen to the ground in a solid layer of ice. Hosokawa laughs at Kiyo, and claims that the Mamados are freaks. Zatch is outraged and lunges at the larger man, but Hosokawa catches Zatch and takes both the blond boy and his spellbook. Hosokawa discovers he can't read Zatch's spellbook, but remembers the name of the spell that Kiyo had used earlier and attempts to cast it. But nothing happens, much to Hosokawa's dismay. Disgusted, the man kicks Zatch back to Kiyo. But Zatch tackles Hosokawa and retakes his spellbook, bringing it back to Kiyo. As Hosokawa and Reycom send another barrage of ice towards Kiyo and Zatch, Kiyo focuses his anger onto the ice that holds his arm captive, and manages to break free. Zatch and Kiyo direct a bolt of lightning towards their foes, and it hits Reycom squarely. Kiyo's up on his feet again, and ready to fight. Kiyo asks Reycom why he puts up with Hosokawa. Reycom claims that he knows what Aijikawa uses him for is wrong, but that hatred makes Reycom grow stronger, so he gains as much from it as Hosokawa does.

    Kiyo decides they're both crazy, but doesn't have enough time to think it over as another Level 2 blast of ice comes at them. Kiyo realizes that his Zacare isn't going to be enough, and decides to risk trying the 2nd level spell in his book, Rashield. As another blast of ice comes to finish them off, Kiyo and Zatch cast Rashield, and a wall of lightning rises up before them and throws the now-lightning-charged ice back at their opponents. The attack hits Hosokawa and Reycom directly, ending the fight. But part of the ice hits Reycom's spell book, igniting a blue flame that burns along the cover. Reycom tries desperately to put it out, but his book burns to ashes, and when it goes up in flames, so does the ice Mamodo.

    Hosokawa Zatch and Kiyo are both sobered by the Mamado's death, as are the other two people that watch the battle from above. One of them, a blond woman, turns away, making it clear that this is not the first time she has seen this happen. And it won't be the last.moreless
  • Zatch beats Reycom!

    Yes, Zatch Bell and Kiyo finally beat Reycom. In this episode, Kiyo is able to read a new spell, Ra-shield. This spell is a shield spell (kind of obvious). When the fight is finally over, Reycom's book is on fire. He is trying to put out the flames but it is still burning on fire. He is slowly fading away and finally he disappears. Kiyo is shocked and puzzled at what happened. I think he knows that the book has something to do with the demons (mamodos, monsters, etc etc) fighting. Ooooh! He will find out what it all means in the next episode!!!moreless
  • Zatch and Kiyo use the second spell to it's fullest in the second battle with reycom. and Kiyo learns a little more about zatch and the spell books that when it goes Zatch goes with it! kiyo you bette protect taht book with your evry life now! your very lmoreless

    the battle for king has truely begun with one book out and 98 to go Zatch will need to learn as much as he can as will kiyo before it's too late! this was a very exciting episode full of action and full of facts in other words... very cool!
  • The Second Spell is Rai Sheild

    The Second Spell is powerful and later in series he use a lot I hope Zatch get more spell and when Kiyop get his hand stock and can't cast the spell then he can not win the battle but he got his hand back to normal and he finally used the spell
