Garasu and a group of other students approached Rio Kastle upon her return to Heartland Academy after getting out of the hospital. Each of them wanted Rio to become manager of their club or team. Rio agreed to visit each club, but would only become manager if they defeated her. Garasu was the goalie of the soccer team and failed to block Rio's kick.
