The World Beyblade Championships, a competition hosted by the WBBA, is about to begin. The Japanese qualifier for the tournament starts and the majority of the rounds are over very quickly with Masamune, Tsubasa, Yu and Kyoya all making it to the semi-finals. Yu desperately tries to face Masamune but Kenta battles him instead and loses. Yu then proceeds to face Masamune, but time is up before they can even start. Because Gingka won Battle Bladers, he is automatically selected as Japan's first representative. Gingka doesn't know this until Kenta tells him. He goes to his father and pleads with him to let him battle. Gingka then launches Galaxy Pegasus and it goes around a chair leg and Gingka says that battling alone isn't fun. In the first semi-final match, Yu faces off with Masamune. Their Beys clash in battle as Yu gains the upper hand with his Flame Libra against Masamune's Ray Striker. Despite this, Masamune fights back with brute force and eventually defeats Yu, making Masamune one of Japan's representatives to the World Beyblade Championships. Despite the loss, Yu still has a chance to become a sub for the team.
