The first group match day starts. While Sumire-chan and Tsutomu-kun scout out the other teams, the rest of the Mizusawa team faces their first challengers from Chiba International School. Shocked at first about them speaking english, Taichi realizes quickly that they are, despite their foreign looks, Japanese pretending to speak English to unsettle the Mizusawa team. Clarifying this, the match starts, while Arata arrives at Omi Jingu, meeting Shinobu-chan.
