It turns out that Amidamaru and his best friend struggled to get out of poverty during Japan’s feudal era, but when Amidamaru is ordered to kill his friend, he refuses to do so and ends up committing a massacre.
On the other hand, Manta returns to the cemetery, and runs into a gang of criminals under the command of Ryuunosuke, who does not hesitate to beat Manta up.
You decides to intervene, and even tells Manta that he already considers him his friend, and confesses that he is a shaman, and that despite not looking like one, he is strong enough to face Ryuunosuke.
Once they arrive at the cemetery, You tells Ryuunosuke that those who inhabit the place are upset with him and his gang, and asks them to leave the place.
With Amidamaru’s encouragement, You teaches Ryuunosuke a lesson, who ends up running away.
Eventually, You convinces Amidamaru to support him in his goal of becoming the Shaman King.
