Zodiac Maiden ArcEdit
While Utamaru disappears and Juuzou and Nero transfer to his school. The second finger puppet Mr. Dandy awakes. Mr. Dandy tells him of nova and how each of his finger puppets represents a different constellation. Mr.Dandy also tells him that Mao the aquarius maiden is in danger. He shows up just in time where he finds Takezou there as well. He meets Arachne for the first time and asks her to forget about everyone else and only target him However she doesn't agree to such a thing and attacks with her fully awaken bug kamiichi while having the aquarius maiden captive. Mr. Dandy told him to wait as tongari was preparing his nova. Ichimatsu was then amazed when takezou dashed forward to tell save mao. Because takezou had lived in his own world and never done anything that would require or result in him working up a sweat or getting hurt. Ichimatsu helped him and saved mao. Ichimatsu then used the new nova: chiron. He destroyed the monster, saved kamiichi and blasted off arachne's arm. He then met the rest of shadow matter and was told of the objectives of BB0 as well as his next challenge.
Three days later ichimatsu body is in pain from his body not being use to and his inexperience. He was then told by carmina of the deaths of the virgo and taurus maidens. Enraged ichimatsu refuses to let it go remembering pandora's words of his next challenge. He calms down a bit realizing he couldn't have helped them since they were in other countries; one in Italy and the other in China. But he was far from calm realizing the three maidens within his school were next. As he saw the assassin through the window he launched a chair at the window breaking it, saying he would leave the protection of the girls to koume and takezou. He hurries to the roof and engages the assassin named Valcan in combat. He is quickly defeated and left on the roof as Valcan goes after the girls.
As he laid there unable to move Ichimatsu heard a voice calling him. Telling him to Stand up. It was Jinrei and Stella the now dead virgo and taurus zodiac maidens. They talked to told him him to get up and go save the other girls so no other innocent girls would have to die. Their words revived ichimatsu as he overcame the poison and stood up once again.
He tracked Valcan down and stopped him from harming yumi and further.Soon they commenced a rematch. This time he used the powers of both tongari and Mr. Dandy and defeated Valcan. Just as he did Pandora, Dodo and Arachne of Shadow Matter appeared. Pandora revealed he saw the entire thing and would now see Ichimatsu as a prince of polaris and a enemy and now being the time to give ichimatsu his "present". Mr. Dandy told him to run but he stated he couldn't leave Yumi. He thought of taking Yumi and running but that plan was brought to a halt.
Pandora used Hopi as bait by placing his sign on him to summon the demonic whale Taimat. The whale went on to eat Hopi though Valcan attempted to stop the beast he failed. Before he was eaten he told Ichimatsu to "Kill those Damned ones." He soon realized he was next and after Pandora, Arachne, and Dodo put their "Signs" on him he was about to be the next one to be eaten by Taimat.. Until Takezou and Koume showed up to protect him. Nero and Jyuuzou showed up to help as well. He called nero a chibi and asked was Yumi safe. Nero told them he put Yumi to sleep and in a save place and assured Ichimatsu she was fine. Nero showed his cold demeanor when he told ichimatsu not to call him chibi again.
Together they all fought with Jyuuzou and Takezou combining their power and forcing Taimat back they commenced battle with Pandora who took them on without effort. He used Mr. Dandy's Nova: Gany Medes. But Pandora and the rest of Shadow Matter had to leave. Ichimatsu was told that Taimat would soon eat him when the earth revolves around the sun once.
Depressed from the fact that he was going to die he wanted to be alone until Takezou and Koume came along and both took one mark away from him.
The next day his body in pain from the use of Nova especially when he already had a injured body from his battle with Valcan he stayed and rested in the nurses office. Mr. Dandy noted how his body was strong and he was becoming stronger because after his first use of nova he was not able to move. Yet this time despite being in pain he was able to move around freely.
When he gets up out of the bed in the room he is surprised to find a girl there changing clothes. He thought she was going to call him a pervert and scream yet she didn't and he asked why. She replied that it was her fault for changing while he wasn't asleep. And that since she was in a bathing suit and not her bra and panties it was okay. Ichimatsu asked who she was, she told him she was Takayashiki and there had been in the same class for three months now yet Ichimatsu couldn't remember her. She gave him a letter and told her a friend told her to give it to him. It was a invitation to battle.
When Ichimatsu got there he was overwhelmed and defeated quickly. The person revealed themself to be the same girl he just previously met yet different. She said to just call her Momoko. She called him and the other three weak and tied him up and took him to the roof. When Takezou and Koume arrived she explained everything. She was the Gemini maidens and Valcan didn't notice her because of Mao and Yumi. She had meant to meet with them sooner and she was the one who put the letter in ichimatsu's locker. But some delinquents showed up so she thought of another plan. And she watched everything that happened at this point. She then told how she believed they would die before getting eaten by Taimat and the the zodiac maidens with the exception of her would die as well. Ichimatsu broke free of his ropes and bowed down to her. He admited he knew she was strong and begged him to train them because he can not afford to lose.
Momoko agreed to train them all for thirty days. Taking them out into the wilderness to train. Ichimatsu trained with Koume. Their first task was to build up their stamina by running straight no matter what.Together they ran straight. Going through a river with a powerful current and climbing a 70 foot high mountain. Which Ichimatsu had no problem doing. their next task was to fight a bear. While ichimatsu thought of not fighting it Koume reminded him that their enemies were stronger than a bear together they fight the bear.
