In the climax of her Duel against Motokariya, Tsukiko confesses her feelings for Shoma.

Featured Duel: Light Tsukiko vs Shiori Motokariya[edit]

Duel continues from the previous chapter.

Turn 4: Tsukiko
Tsukiko's hand currently contains "Naturia Cliff" and "Naturia Mole Cricket", and she draws "Exterio's Fang". Since Motokariya controls a Level 7 or higher "Ancient Warriors" monster, Tsukiko must pay 400 LP to activate a card or effect because of "Ancient Warriors - Savage Don Ying". She pays 400 LP (Tsukiko's LP: 3600 → 3200) to activate the effect of "Spore" from her GY, banishing "Naturia Camellia" from her GY to Special Summon "Spore" and increase its Level by the Level of "Camellia" ("Spore": Level 1 → 5). Tsukiko Normal Summons "Naturia Mole Cricket" and pays 400 LP (Tsukiko's LP: 3200 → 2800) to activate its effect, Tributing itself to Special Summon a 2nd "Naturia Camellia" and "Naturia Sunflower" in Defense Position from her Deck. Since "Mole Cricket" was sent to the GY, Motokariya activates the effect of "Savage Don Ying", banishing "Mole Cricket" and drawing 1 card. Motokariya's hand currently contains "Ancient Warriors Saga - Three Visits" and "Ancient Warriors - Deceptive Jia Wen". Tsukiko pays 400 LP (Tsukiko's LP: 2800 → 2400) to activate the effect of "Naturia Camellia", sending "Naturia Sacred Tree" from her Deck to the GY. Next, she pays 400 LP (Tsukiko's LP: 2400 → 2000) to activate the effect of "Sacred Tree", adding "Naturia Hydrangea" from her Deck to her hand. At this point, it's noted that Tsukiko Summoned "Naturia Sunflower" and "Naturia Camellia" in order to seal the effect of Motokariya's "Ancient Warriors Oath - Double Dragon Lords". Tsukiko Special Summons "Naturia Hydrangea" from her hand via its own effect. She tunes "Naturia Sunflower", "Naturia Hydrangea" and "Naturia Camellia" to Synchro Summon "Psychic End Punisher" in Attack Position. Motokariya activates the effect of "Ancient Warriors Oath - Double Dragon Lords" in an attempt to return "Psychic End Punisher" to the hand, but since Tsukiko's LP is lower than Motokariya's, "Punisher" is unaffected by the effect. Tsukiko pays 400 LP (Tsukiko's LP: 2000 → 1600) to activate the effect of "Punisher", paying 1000 more LP (Tsukiko's LP: 1600 → 600) to banish her own "Spore" and Motokariya's "Savage Don Ying". At the start of her Battle Phase, Tsukiko activates the final effect of "Punisher", increasing its ATK by the difference between both players' LP ("Psychic End Punisher": ATK 3500 → 8850). "Punisher" attacks and destroys "Brotherhood of the Fire Fist - Tiger King" (Motokariya's LP: 5950 → 0).
