Until: he realizes that the Shadow Rain is trying to extract it self from Aoki; but is stuck in his heart. Matsumaru grabs his katana and slices his mid-section open; revealing the Shadow Rain. He blasts the Rain with his Black Fire but it doesn't make it budge. Than Aoki regenerates his missing mid-section and than turns his attention to Matsumaru. He attacks Matsumaru and he erupts into a demonic form that destroys most of the thorn room in one blast. Aoki, fearing death, retreats from the island and flies to the top of the mountain and Matsumaru is already waiting. He got to the top: only to be scared by Matsumaru's demonic presence that he almost loses his footing. Demon Matsumaru then punches a fist size hole in his stomach but this didn't stop him. Using the Shadow Rain: he regenerates the hole in his stomach and gut punches Matsumaru, than slams him into the mountain face. Matsumaru than looks down and jumps into the ocean below. Aoki, thinking he's dead, follows him. Matsumaru's katana surfaced from the ocean below and just as Aoki lands on the surface of the water. The sword pierces his chest and in turn: The Shadow Rain. Aoki is than transformed into a stone and grumbles into the ocean. The Rain gets scared and tries to escape from Matsumaru's grip but he holds it tightly. Shujin and Tetsu helps him up onto the surface of the ocean face and they run back to Rain Island. Tetsu disables the protective force field and Matsumaru puts the Rain back on the pedestal and walks away. Tetsu enables the barrier and they teleport home. There: Matsumaru visits Riyu's grave site and remembers the time he had with him. He walks back home and lays on his bed and closes his eyes.
