Yomi waits in ambush to keep the Hanzo shinobi from moving forward. As Ikaruga takes matters into her own hands, Hibari is desperate to escape her cell and tell the others not to fight the Hebijo students, as it will mean their deaths if they lose.
Under Haruka's control, Hibari breaks into Hanzo Academy's depository and takes the super-secret ninja art scroll. After Haruka leaves with the scroll, Hibari feels that she has betrayed the others, and runs away from the academy to get the scroll back.
Kiriya's training of the girls turns especially strict. Afterward, he reminisces about the time two years earlier when Ikaruga and Katsuragi were new students. As Asuka, Hibari, and Yagyu join in later on, the road to the team's formation is revealed.
Still reeling from the blow they were dealt by Hebijo, Kiriya decides to ramp up the girls' training with a mountain-climbing excursion. This so-called "Hai-kin-gu" training provides many challenges to the Hanzo team, both together and separately.
The class members travel to Shinobi Island, a training ground used by shinobi for centuries. Upon their arrival, they are tasked with cleaning the boarding house, where Hibari discovers the written aspiration of a past student to become a "Super-ninja."
Ikaruga and Asuka are confronted by an overpowering Yomi outside the supermarket. Following the confrontation, Ikaruga is left with doubts about her abilities. Meanwhile, Ikaruga's adpoted brother turns up missing. Asuka faces her fear of frogs.
Asuka and the others continue training, but are forbidden from any contact with those outside the school. Asuka feels disappointed when everyone but herself is able to perform the ninja animal-summoning technique. Asuka's Grandpa Hanzo visits the school.
A young shinobi named Asuka carries out a daring mission. The following day, she returns to Hanzo Academy in Asakusa, Tokyo, where she secretly trains with four other classmates. Their afternoon field work holds an unexpected surprise in store for them.
