To Die for the star of Suzaku


When the group finally arrived in Hokkan, they managed to find a place to stay and there, an elder told them about the legendary Shinzaho of the Priestess of Genbu. The legend stated that it is still protected by members of the Genbu Seven 200 years later.

By this, the group started to separate to be able to find the Shinzaho fast. Before doing so, Miaka promised herself that after she summoned Suzaku she will abandon her old world and stay with Tamahome instead.

While planning of the separation inside a bar, Nuriko cuts his hair in order to protect Miaka easily. He then tells them he is now a man, but still inside he's still have the heart of a woman. They began to travel in different places, leaving Nuriko with Tamahome and Miaka.

They saw an ancient writing which only a scholar can read, and Tamahome decides to follow a man whose dad is a scholar. The man's dad told them that the writing is located to where the Priestess of Genbu first appeared, and that the Shinzaho is in Mt. Kokureishin. After hearing the news, Tamahome encountered Yui, who is also in Hokkan for the Shinzaho, and she had just separated from Suboshi. At the same time, Ashitare, one of the Seiryuu Seven, was sent by Nakago in replacement of Soi in order to kill the Priestess. Ashitare found Miaka and Nuriko and began to attack.
