However, Jian happens to be busy and Ruki’s going out with her grandmother, and Takato finds Juri, Hirokazu, and Kenta accompanied by a large group of other kids from his class at his door wanting to see him.As it turns out, they want to see Guilmon, and Takato takes them to Guilmon’s hideout and shows them. Guilmon is happy to meet Takato’s friends, who are fascinated by him. Hirokazu swears the group to secrecy, to which they all wholeheartedly agree.Ruki goes to see a play with her grandmother, while Jian goes off to visit his tai chi teacher. Jian takes Terriermon with him after seeing him as a victim of Shaochung’s playing, while the play Ruki’s watching reminds her of her fights together with Renamon.Guilmon has fun playing with Takato and his friends, but Impmon shows up and yells at him for playing with human kids. Guilmon seems to enjoy himself anyway, and Renamon approaches Impmon, asking if he envies Guilmon. Impmon denies it, and Renamon points out that he’s paying quite a bit of attention to them before leaving.Ruki and her grandmother are at the station when her Digivice alerts her to a Digimon. She’s relieved to find that it’s only Culumon , only for her Digivice to beep again and indicate another presence. The fog of a Digital Field enters the station and as a giant snake Digimon appears, Ruki summons Renamon and has her grandmother taken to safety. Renamon begins battle with the Digimon, and Ruki is initially unable to get any data on it on her Digivice before it finally identifies it as Sandiramon, yet another Perfect level Digimon. Ruki decides that Renamon will need to evolve to stand a chance, and quickly slashes the appropriate card to have her do so. Sandiramon runs down the train tracks, and Ruki, riding Kyuubimon, chases him.Jian and Terriermon get off at a train station and Terriermon senses Sandiramon’s presence. As Sandiramon enters the station and the civilians flee in a panic, Sandiramon begins to destroy the train, which contains a crying toddler. To save him, Jian uses an Option Card to give Terriermon a shield and block Sandiramon’s attack. Jian reunites the toddler with his mother, and Ruki, running by, tosses Jian a phone to call Takato with.Ruki uses a speed Option Card on Kyuubimon as they continue the chase, while Jian goes off to look for Takato. Sandiramon continues to cause more mayhem on the subway line, with Kyuubimon’s attacks not even laying a scratch on him. Jian and Galgomon arrive to help, and while Guilmon plays happily with Takato and his friends, he senses Sandiramon nearby. A bit of taunting from Impmon about how Takato’s playing around reveals to them that Sandiramon is underground, and as Guilmon senses a battle down there, Takato realizes that Jian and Ruki are fighting there too.The other kids are interested in seeing a real Digimon battle, but Takato tells them to stay out of it since it’s not a game and uses an Option Card to give Guilmon a drill to go underground. Before he departs with Guilmon to join the fight, Hirokazu gives him an Option Card, and Takato gratefully accepts it and goes in. The others cheer him on, while Impmon sulks.Culumon, Kyuubimon, and Galgomon all feel a strange feeling from Sandiramon, and Takato and Guilmon appear from above to intervene. Takato has Guilmon evolve to Growmon and uses Hirokazu’s Option Card to give Guilmon extra power. The combined efforts of the three Digimon manage to knock Sandiramon over, but he only laughs at them and tells them that he’s one of twelve servant “Devas” sent by his God, and that with his death it’s only just begun. As Sandiramon dissolves into data, Jian realizes that the two Devas they’ve fought so far are different from all the Digimon from before.Takato, Jian, and Ruki emerge from the tunnel with their partners, while Takato’s friends are entranced by the sight of not just one but three Digimon. They’re interrupted by a frantic call from Ruki’s grandmother demanding to know if Ruki is okay, and as Ruki reassures her, the large group of kids decide to find a place to hide the Digimon away as the police approach the scene of the fight.
