Juri picks up some bread at the Matsuda bakery and finds that Takato is out. She walks out and runs into Hirokazu and Kenta, who decide to lead her over to where Takato is.
Yamaki has the Wild Bunch bring up the base program data of the Digimon, but they struggle to decode Shibumis code. Yamaki tells Jiangyu that the existence of Digimon is threatening his children, and urges him to find the data.
Hirokazu, Kenta, and Juri sneak into the bushes near Guilmons hideout and watch Takato, Jian, and Ruki discuss the Devas and what Jians kenpo teacher had told him. Hirokazu and Kenta, worrying about them, wish that they were Tamers so they could help and ask Juri what she thinks. Juri claims that shes not even involved in the Digimon card game...only for a ton of cards to fall out of her pocket.
Hirokazu and Kenta awkwardly look back at Guilmons hideout to find Takato, Jian, and Ruki gone. They conclude that they must have gone after an evil Digimon and run off to look for them, while Juri decides to go home. On the way, she finds Culumon and gives him some bread...while the mysterious, strange-looking kid looks on.
Juri bonds with Culumon over the bread and wonders if Culumon is her partner, since theyre good friends. She declares herself to be Culumons Tamer, while Culumon is flustered. Theyre approached by a hostile Digimon called Kumbhiramon, a Deva who quickly declines Juris fearful suggestion that he might be her partner. Still believing herself to be Culumons Tamer, Juri tries to get Culumon to fight against Kumbhiramon, but Culumon is too afraid and the two run for it.
Kumbhiramon corners Juri and Culumon, but theyre saved by the emergence of a Digimon that Juri uses her cards to identify as Leomon. Juri is charmed and wonders if Leomon is her partner. Leomon, declaring himself to be a fighter against injustice, takes on Kumbhiramon and sends him flying. Juri immediately latches onto Leomon, whos rather put off by her rather abrupt assertion that shes his Tamer. As Juri gets progressively more and more clingy, Leomon runs off to prevent the situation from getting any more awkward, while Juri chases him.
The chase gets to Guilmons hideout, and when Culumons about to point out to Juri where he is, Leomon pulls him in to keep him quiet. Takato and Guilmon find him and assume that Leomons attacking Culumon, and an exasperated Leomon decides hell fight if he has to. Juri, however, quickly appears and tells Takato that Leomon is her partner. Leomon is completely confused by this entire situation, not really understanding what a Tamer is and why Juri is latching onto him, and when Juri continues to be unsettlingly clingy he runs off again.
Takato calls Jian for advice, and Jian suggests that it might be something different...
- Takato: Katou!Juri: What?Takato: Have you ever fallen in love?Juri: Yeah!Takato: When?Juri: Kindergarten!Takato: Thanks! (to Jian) Its not her first love.
Jian tells Takato hes coming over to check it out, and Takato calls Ruki to get her opinion on things. Ruki says that Juri cant be a Tamer if she doesnt have a Digivice, and also decides to come over to talk to Juri about it. In the middle of the chase, Kumbhiramon appears and begins a fight with Leomon, and Jian, arriving, identifies Kumbhiramon as a Deva. As the kids watch Leomon fight, Juri takes Takatos Digivice and tries to perform a Card Slash, but nothing happens. Juri is distraught at the realization that shes not Leomons Tamer after all.
Jian sends Terriermon in, evolving him to Galgomon via Option Card. The strange-looking boy, watches the battle, sees Culumons forehead glowing and laughs while running off, while Renamon and Ruki arrive and Renamon chases after the boy. Galgomon and Leomon continue to fight Kumbhiramon, and Leomon, seeing Juri miserable, decides to fight for her sake as well.
Leomon and Galgomon defeat Kumbhiramon, and Leomon takes his leave. Juri asks to be left alone and continues crying, while all of the others awkwardly leave.
At Hypnos headquarters, Dolphin alerts Jiangyu and shows him a picture hed found: a picture of children playing with Digivices, which Jiangyu identifies as Arksnote . While the Wild Bunch nostalgically checks out the picture, the ground begins to shake...
- Saying Sound Effects Out Loud: When eating the bread Juri gives him, Culumon vocalizes the Japanese onomatopoeia for eating ("mogu mogu mogu mogu").
- Stock Footage / Transformation Sequence: Juri gets her own dedicated sequence when she borrows Takatos Digivice for a Card Slash. Probably because she actually does eventually become a Tamer (the sequence is used in a later episode).
