Amu tells Ikuto to sleep on the floor, but he replies that he is ill. He also told her that she was the one who dragged him back into her house. A flashback occur from the recent episode, showing Amu and her three Shugo Charas following Yoru, Ikuto's Shugo Chara, where he told Amu that Ikuto was in trouble. Amu carried Ikuto back to her house and told him that he will feel a lot better back at her place or so she had thought. Amu and the three Shugo Charas think that they had picked up a stray as Ikuto and Yoru were stretching their arms.
Sometime later, Amu and her family had began to eat their breakfast. Ami Hinamori notices that she was eating green peppers and she does not like it very much. Her mother told Ami that she need to eat them or she would not grow up big and strong as a fine lady. Her father thinks that she wanted her to stay as she was, causing the mother to feel a bit upset at him. Amu finishes her breakfast and secretly scamper around the kitchen. The mother asked Amu of what she was doing and she replied that the breakfast she ate did not make her full enough. She rushes back into her room with a piece of banana and a bag of dried sardines in her arms.
When Amu got back, Yoru smelled the dried sardines and snatched it away from her. Amu notices Ikuto sleeping on the floor with one of her big pillows. She asked Ikuto to eat the banana that she had brought, but he did not move. Ran wonders if he had never eaten a banana before while Su tries to explain it to Ikuto. Yoru told them that he can eat a banana as he chews down the sardines in his mouth. Ikuto slowly gets up and ate the banana. Amu wonders if he is still okay. Ikuto laid back down and replied that he is indeed okay. But insulted her that he does not want to be as fat as her, making Amu really mad.
Meanwhile, at Tadase Hotori's house, Tadase was making a special gift bag as his Shugo Chara, Kiseki, was telling him that there are plenty of leftover chocolate from Valentine's Day while eating a big chunk of chocolate in his mouth. In Amu's house, Amu is having some difficulty studying as Ikuto is laying on her bed reading one of her Mangas. Yaya Yuiki called her in her cellphone as Amu answered it accidentally yelling at her. Yaya asked what was wrong and Amu replied that there was some stuff going on lately. She also asked Amu if she wanted to come to the sale today as there wer bargains, but she denied Yaya's offer as she have other things that she needs to do. Yaya tries to peek through her cellphone, but Amu hung up on her.Amu looks at Ikuto again and he asks 'what' and she angrily replied that it was nothing.
In another place, Tadase is walking down a path as Nagihiko Fujisaki notices him and asking him where he was going. He also notice that Tadase is carrying a gift bag. Nagihiko wonders if that bag is for White Day and the place where he was going leads to Amu Hinamori's house. Before he even finishes his sentence, Tadase told him not to say it and dashes off towards the Hinamori residence. Nagihiko smiles with a flower holding in his right hand thinking that Tadase had finally made his decision.
In Amu's room, Amu still continues of her assignment but still being distracted by Ikuto's nuissance behavior on her bed. She is about scold him when suddenly Ami enters the room by surprise as Amu instantly covers Ikuto with her blanket. Ami glares for a moment and sees Yoru and says that she found him calling him 'Super Kitty Character'. She hugs him tightly as Amu and the other Shugo Charas fall to the ground. Amu asked Ami why she was here, when her father from downstairs yelled "Amu, did you invited a boy in the house?" causing her to feel shocked thinking that she had been found out.
Amu went downstairs and to her surprise,it was Tadase. The father was shocked to see that her daughter actually have a boyfriend while the mother said to him that it was okay for her in her current age to have one. Amu asked Tadase why he came to her house. He was about to reply, but her mother told them that they can chat in Amu's room with some tea. Amu told Tadase she had to go back to her room to clean some certain things and ran up her room at top speed. As she arrived back to her room, she instantly tossed Ikuto and Yoru into the air and closed the door and closed her closet, giving Ikuto and Yoru a serious facial expression and said ,"Not a peek!"
Tadase told Amu that her room is nice. Amu is starting to feel nervous over him. Back downstairs, Ami asked her mother why her father was running around outside the house. She replies that he is still upset over Amu having a boy in her room. In Amu's room, Amu is staring at Tadase with aweness, but was shortly interrupted by Yoru's cat sound. Tadase wonders who is making that sound. Amu replies that it was Ran making that sound, giving her some appreciation and Ran tried to make some cat sounds to accomodate Amu while Yoru laughs in joy. Amu was not really happy about it and reminds herself to get back at them later. She asked again towards him why the sudden visit. Tadase gave Amu a small bag of small cookies. Amu realized that today is March 14, the holiday of White Day. She reminded him that since Valentine's Day, she had lost the chocolate that she made for him. Tadase gave her comments that he was glad that she told him about the chocolate. Ran, Miki, and Su were happy for Amu even though she lost the chocolate with the marking K on it. Ikuto realized that the chocolate he had ate was hers. Tadase also explains further the reason of the sudden visit. After the long conversation and many flashbacks, Tadase finally made his confession to her that he actually loves her. Amu was little surprised and happy for him that he had confess.
Later that night, Amu thought over Tadase's confession but Ikuto intervened saying the same words from what Tadase had said to her earlier. Amu was shocked that he was eavesdropping. She also remind him to get off from her bed and to sleep on the floor. He replies that it is cold on the floor, but Amu does not care about it. He then drags onto Amu's bed and hugs her. He told her that she is like a hot water bottle to keep him warm. Amu got mad and forcingly tossed him to the floor. Yoru asked him if he was alright. She immediately goes to bed and ask Ran to turn off the light. Everyone is now asleep except for Amu as she had a rough day. In moments, she fell fast asleep.
During the night, she woke up realizing that Ikuto is sleeping next to her. She became angry again and repeatedly told him to sleep on the floor, but he does not want to go back there. Both of them grudgingly fights over the bed until Amu won in victory as she tossed him back to the floor. Amu asked Ikuto why the violin was important to him. He replied that it was a memento from his parents, though he cannot remember what they had looked like. He also explains more about the reason why he works for Easter. Amu thought about his situation then asked another question about the Dumpty Key. Ikuto changed the subject and never reveal about it. Amu thinks that he is in a rebel phase, always treating her as a kid including that he is a kid as well. Ikuto stood then laid next to Amu on the side of the bed. He thought about Tadase's confession to her. Amu asked why he brought it up. She asked him if he love someone too. Ikuto answered that he does love someone and confesses that it is her. Amu was shocked a bit but then she taps his head,saying that she hates people who lie. Ikuto then says that she does not believe him and Amu says that it is because he is always teasing her and Ikuto says " he might be the one who cried wolf" as there was a short moment of silence between the two. He was about to ask Amu something, but changes his mind. Ikuto then tells her to grow up making her not understand what he meant about that. Both of them fell to sleep afterward as the scene shows Tadase's cookies on Amu's desk glittering in the moonlight along with Amu, Tadase, and Ikuto's faces showing.
24 (75)- "Bareta!? Utau ga Uchi ni Yattekita!" ("The Jig is Up!? Utau Pays a Visit!")(バレた!? 歌唄が家にやってきた!)
Airdate: March 21, 2009
The episode starts with Amu sitting at her desk while reading a magazine. As she reads, she notices a picture of Utau there. She thinks about her, and finds out that she hasn't seen her since the concert.
Ikuto is sitting with his back against the bed while eating some snacks. To Amu’s question whether he has seen her lately, he replies with a simple no. This makes Amu wonder and, when she asks why, Yoru starts saying that it's for Utau's own sake, but he is cut off by Ikuto. Ikuto says he has his reasons, but won't say anymore. Amu comments that Utau probably misses him, and that she feels lonely.
Ikuto finds this sentence as a source to another of his comments and replies: "At least she's not prone to violence when we're together, unlike a certain someone." This makes Amu confiscate his snacks. Miki then comments that if Utau had seen this, it would have been quite the predicament. Two seconds later, Utau is at her door.
Amu is afraid that Utau has discovered that she was hiding Ikuto in her room, and almost panics as Utau asks if could be possible that she was hiding Ikuto. This, luckily for Amu, was just some thinking from Utau, and she blames herself for being too paranoid when it comes to Ikuto. She then asks if she's free, and Amu says that she only has to change.
Lulu and Nana are wandering around the town looking for lost children. They notice Amu and Utau on their way into a ramen shop, and Lulu recognizes Utau as Ikuto's little sister, and says she is just a failure. At this Nana comments that one day, Lul will be in the same position, but Lulu says that she's the one using Easter, not the opposite, and the second she gets hold of the Embryo it would be "So long, Easter".
Utau and Amu enter the ramen shop, and many people recognize Utau, so Amu asks why she wasn't wearing sunglasses and a hat to disguise herself. Utau replies, "Why should I do that? It's not like I've done anything wrong."
When they are asked for what they would like to eat, Utau says she wanted "Salt Noodles, Extra-firm. Extra Back Fat. Topping: seasoned egg". Amu don't understands what she said, but says she wanted the same. They eat the ramen, and Amu says that this is the first time she had eaten real ramen. She thinks about how her family always goes to family restaurants, but her thoughts are interrupted by Utau ordering another bowl.
Amu comments that as an idol she shouldn't eat that much, but Utau says she does whatever like likes. Eru then says Utau needed the strength for recording her new song. Amu gets interested, and asks if there will be any TV appearances, but Utau says it's difficult to get in the big shows for the time being, though she doesn’t care where she sings. Amu, Ran, Miki and Suthink this is really cool, but Utau gets embarrassed and acts like she doesn’t care. Outside the window, Lulu is standing. She looks through the window, and Nana makes a comment about whether Lulu is jealous. Lulu refuses to confess this.
Inside the shop, Utau orders a bowl of rice. This makes a boy step forward. He says that it's an insult to the owner to order rice at a ramen shop, but the owner says wasn't a problem at all. The kid continues talking about ramen manners, and people around then comment that he's an elementary school boy that has his own ramen blog.
Utau say she wants to hear more, and he tells her you have to taste the soup first, then take some noodles. That way the ramen is most enjoyable. Utau asks whether the taste is better that way, but doesn’t wait for an answer. Amu follows Utau as she leaves.
Outside, Lulu has to hide behind a poster. She waits until Utau and Amu are out of sight before looking through the window again. The kid is now standing in shock after hearing what Utau said, and Lulu smiles, saying they had found a lost person.
In the next scene, Amu and Utau are walking along the river. Amu then remembers that earlier, Utau said she wanted to talk about Ikuto, and asks what it was Utau wanted to say. Utau says she has been searching for him many days now, but she couldn't find him. She also tells that there were a lot of people from Easter searching around her house.
Amu thinks about what Ikuto said earlier, and asks why Ikuto had to work for Easter. The answer is because something their father did. She tells that their father was a famous violinist, and their mother the founder of Easter.
Many people were against them marrying each other, but accepted it as their father said he would lead the company when his father-in-law died. He didn't keep that promise though, and left the night the old leader died, only taking with him his favorite violin.
There was then a great pressure on the family that was left behind. They waited in many years for his return, but one day they found his violin overseas, and then the mother the director of Easter became very ill.
Amu says that it was wrong to let the two of them take the blame, but Utau says that that’s how the real world was. She then tells Amu that she joined Easter to get the Embryo so that she could wish for Ikuto to be freed from this cruel life. However, as the time passed, she realized that she wasn't strong enough to save neither herself nor Ikuto, and that Amu was the one helping her out.
Tadase and Kukai are taking a walk along the river, and see the girls. Tadase and Amu, still embarrassed for what happened the day before, are very nervous. Kukai wonders when Amu and Utau got this close, and Utau says they weren't close, that they only ate some ramen together. Kukai then says he loves ramen, and that a new ramen place just opened, and that there was a competition where the winner would get free ramen. Utau takes this as a challenge, and they leave Tadase and Amu. Tadase asks Amu if she would like to go for a walk, which she gladly accepts.
As Amu and Tadase are walking through a park, Amu is wondering why everything felt different now that they both knew that they liked each other. Tadase then brings her back to this dimension by calling her Amu-chan. He then asks if it was okay for him to start calling her that. She gets shocked at first, but says it was fine by her.
They sit down, and Tadase thanks her for accepting his selfish feelings. Then he says that he had been thinking about going out, but that it might not be fair to Kairi since he confessed first. Amu is just staring, not believing this was happening.
He then says "I love you, Amu-Chan". This makes Amu all embarrassed, but he says he will repeat it over and over to make up for all the time she had liked him.
At the same time are Kukai and Utau eating at the new Ramen place. Kukai says she had an amazing competition spirit.
The kid from earlier is walking down the street while reading a ramen book. He then sees Utau and Kukai inside the new shop, and is impressed that she is still eating. He then shakes his head, thinking that be shouldn't praise someone that is eating ramen the wrong way, and runs away.
He stops at a dead end, and turns around where he faces Lulu. She uses the jewel, and makes him Character Transform.
Utau and Kukai are still eating, but then Eru, Iru and Daichi say that they felt the presence of a mystery-egg, and they leave the shop.
The kid is watching people making all kinds of "Ramen mistakes", and attacks them with noodles.
Utau and Kukai meets up with Amu and Tadase, and Tadase and Amu transform to Platinum Royale and Amulet Clover. Kukai and Daichi are also about to transform, but Kukai has eaten to much.
The kid attacks Amu, but Tadase blocks it. Tadase is about to be hurt, but then Amu uses Su's pepper attack, this makes the kid angry, and he captures them both in noodles. They are, however, cut free by Utau, who now has transformed to Lunatic Charm with II. The fact that Utau helped them is making Lulu, who is standing behind a tree, really irritated.
Utau blocks all attacks the kid throws at her, and says she has decided to do things her own way. Amu follows, and says it doesn’t matter how you eat it, as long you enjoy it. This turns the kid into an X-Egg, but Amu quickly uses "Open Heart" to heal him.
The kid is then seen eating in all the "wrong" ways at the ramen shop.
Amu and Utau is walking home together, and Amu calls Utau a life-saver. Utau, however, says it's all thanks to Amu. Amu doesn’t understand this, so Utau explains. She says that Amu is one of those annoying people that just have to save people, and because of this she will might allow Amu to help her save Ikuto. Amu then asks why, and Utau says Amu should be grateful to be allowed to save him.
At the Easter laboratory is the object that's connected with Ikuto’s violin making noises. Then we see lots and lots of x-egg gathering around a violin-playing person with cat ears - Later known as Ikuto in his Death Rebel transformation.

Airdate: March 28, 2009
In the start of the episode, Amu is having a dream about Tadase telling her that he loves her, and then she wakes up to find Ikuto sleeping next to her again. She gets irritated and yells at him, but he doesn't wake up. Meanwhile, Yoru looks uncomfortable, and keeps glancing at Amu's clsoet, where Ikuto's violin is stored inside. At school, Amu is talking to Ran, Miki, and Suu at the Royal Garden, holding a tea kettle. Tadase comes up next to her and surprises her, causing some tea to burn her hand. He holds a cloth to her hand, asking her if she's okay. Yaya and Rima become suspicious of Amu and Tadase when they hear him call her "Amu-chan". They ask the two if anything happened between them, but Amu keeps saying nothing has. Nagihiko looks at Tadase, who is slightly blushing guiltily, and smiles knowingly. During the Guardian meeting, Nagihiko tells the Guardians that last night he heard a strange sound, and when he went outside there were many people standing around, looking hypnotized. Nagihiko says that there were X eggs as well, so it must be Easter's doing.
After school, Tadase and Amu are looking out at a lake during sunset. He tells her that he wants to become stronger so that he can protect her and his other friends. Afterwards telling her once again that he loves her. Suddenly, Amu's Shugo Charas sense something strange happening, so they lead Amu and Tadase to the park where Ikuto usually played his violin. There are many hypnotized people standing around, and then Amu hears a strange sound that she thinks is a guitar. Tadase corrects her that it is the A string of a violin. Both of them instantly think of Ikuto, although Amu is positive that he's asleep at her house. After a tense moment, Tadase asks if she wishes to head home, so she agrees, wondering why Tadase always seems so angry whenever Ikuto is brought up.
Amu gets home to find Ikuto sitting up on her bed. She asks him if he went anywhere, and gets the reply of "Huh? Where would I go?" She is relieved that he is not the culprit. She then offers to buy him some food, but he says that he is tired and falls asleep. Yoru, looking concerned again, looks at the door of the closet where Ikuto's violin is.
The Easter building is then shown late at night, with the director speaking to Gozen, and telling him that tonight he will commence the "Death Rebel plan". The director smirks, talking to himself and saying that Ikuto will become his puppet.
At home, Ikuto's violin has a dark purple aura surrounding it, and then he opens his eyes. Yoru looks worried and cries, "Hey, Ikuto!" as there is a flash of light where Ikuto was lying.
Then Tadase is shown at the same park at night, saying that his suspicions had been right. There are X eggs shown in a large group, and then is shows the same figure as before, playing a violin. It is Ikuto, but he is in a different Character Transformation that Kiseki says he has never seen before. Tadase yells at Ikuto, he turns around and has glazed eyes, like the hypnotized victims' had been. Tadase asks Ikuto to says something, but the cat-eared boy doesn't. Yoru watches worriedly from a bush.
The next morning, Amu finds Ikuto sound asleep, as usual, except that she notices that he has a wound on his arm. She questions if he had it the night before. As she walks to school, she is thinking about Ikuto, and then Tadase comes up from behind her, and Amu notices that he looks sort of scary/serious. But he acts normal, asking if she'd like to walk to school with him. As she agrees, she spots a bandage on his left leg, as well as on his right knee. At the Guardian meeting, Tadase reveals that last night he figured out that the X egg culprit was Ikuto Tsukiyomi. The others figure that Easter is forcing him to collect X eggs. Amu doesn't think that's right, because she believes that Ikuto isn't a bad person, but she holds her tongue. Tadase noticed that she looks stressed, and asks her what's wrong, but she asks(instead of telling everyone that Ikuto is staying at her home) why he is always angry when Ikuto is in the conversation. Tadase is silent, looking serious/scary again, until Yaya breaks the silence and declares that their work is to sow the flower garden. Kiseki is furious, and tells Pepe and Kusukusu that they will search for Ikuto. Ran, Miki and Suu suddenly see Yoru hiding behind a tree, looking at them. He says that he needs to tell them something important about Ikuto, but then Kiseki appears, thinking the three have "captured Ikuto's accomplice". To keep the others Shugo Charas from finding out Ikuto's whereabouts, Ran, Miki and Suu throw Yoru far away from there, soon realizing in horror that he will surely retret back to Amu's home. Kiseki, Pepe and Kusukusu, of course, follow Yoru. Ran beats Yoru to Amu's house, and throws him down to Miki, who hits hi at Suu, but he hits the wall. He tells that he still has to tell them about Ikuto, but Miki shrugs it off, and Ran tells Yoru to stop making Amu suffer with problems. Yoru, upset, flies away, only to be chased my Kiseki, Pepe and Kusukusu.
Meanwhile, Amu and Nagihiko are having a discussion about keeping secrets, and Amu decides that he is right, that some secret are meant to be kept. On the way home, Tadase and Amu stop at a flower hop to get flowers for Tadase's grandmother. Amu gets a surge of bravery and concludes that Tadase is strong, and she dosen't want to keep any secrets from him. But, she ends up blurting out that she doesn't believe Ikuto to be bad. Tadase gets his serious face again, and tells Amu that Ikuto is a black cat who brings misfortune. The episode ends with Amu repeating those words, looking at Tadase with disbelieving eyes.
26 (77)- "Shōgeki! Kowasareta Hatsu Dēto!?" ("Shocking! First Date, Busted!?")(衝撃! 壊された初デート!?)
Airdate: April 4, 2009
At the start of the episode, Amu is in her room, with Ikuto still on her bed reading a magazine. She wonders how he is like a black cat of misfortune if he is so innocently lying there. She asks him how he got the cut on his shoulder, but he says he doesn't remember. She checks it, and he tells her, for laughs, that he hurt himself on his back as well. She looks, and he grabs her, pulling her close to him and saying "Gotcha". Of course, Amu becomes angry with him. While eating dinner that night, Ikuto hears Amu talking with her parents about Tadase, and he flashes back to his own father playing the violin for a young Utau and himself.
At school the next day, the Guardians are visited by younger kids who are writing the school newpaper, and they pester them with questions. At one point, Yaya sees Amu and Tadase talking and thinks they are being "lovey-dovey again", which makes the kids ask if they are dating. Later on, Tadase asks Amu if she would like to go to a flower exhibit with him. Amu immediately snaps at the thought of a date with him, and she agrees. She returns home "on cloud nine", at which Ikuto questions her good mood. He smirks, knowing that her and Tadase are going on a date together. Amu claims she has no clue what he means, and then Ikuto tells her that if she is going out, she should take a bath first. Amu angrily shoves him into the bathroom, saying that He is the one who needs a bath. She gets him some clothes and tells him to hurry, but he says the shower is cramped for two people. Amu shoves him in there, embarrassed and irritated, with his clothes still on. He soon takes a shower, and then Amu's mom comes home. Amu manages to keep her mother from coming into the bathroom. At one point Amu notices the time, and that she needs to hurry to meet Tadase. She changes as Ikuto is done his shower. After he puts clothes on, Amu opens the door carefully, to find that her mother is angrily staring down at her. She asks what is going on.
The three go downstairs to talk about what has been going on. Amu's mother tells her that she isn't that mad that Amu was helping him, but she wishes that Amu has trusted her parents and told them about Ikuto. She offers to get him a hotel room for the night to stay in, because he can't stay there any longer. Back in Amu's room, she is packing things for Ikuto, and wonders if she will miss him. Ikuto comments that Amu's parents are always watching over her, even if she doesn't see it. He smiles a bit sadly, saying, "That must be nice..." Just then, Tadase comes over, and Amu hastily shuts the door to her room, standing with Tadase out in the hallway. They start to head out, when Ikuto steps out of the room, revealing everything; that he was there the whole time, during Tadase's last visit, and he mocked him on how Tadase confessed his love to Amu. "Quite a passionate confession for a young boy," was what he said while smirking. Amu tries to explain her reasons, but Tadase becomes hurt, looking like he might cry of embarrassment and hurt, and runs out. Amu, tearing up, yells at Ikuto for being selfish and making that happen. She says that she never wants to see him again, and runs out with her Shugo Charas to find Tadase. Yoru, floating next to Ikuto, looks sad, while Ikuto looks like he's trying to hide sadness.
Amu is shown running to find Tadase. Then the kids from earlier show Yaya and Rima their newspaper article, with a picture of Tadase and Amu, with the caption "Best Couple". Tadase is shown silently walking down the busy streets. Ikuto is walking under a tunnel, carrying his violin. Yoru tells him that he knows that Ikuto only did that to protect Amu and her family from Easter's plans. Suddenly, there are two Easter agents ahead of Ikuto's path, and two more come up behind him, saying that he has no place to run now. The episode ends where it seems like Ikuto has been captured and Amu saying that she's never hurt anybody so deeply before in her life, asking what she can do now.

Airdate: April 11, 2009
At the beginning of the episode, Amu is in her room, depressed, flashing back to what happened earlier that day. She says she has never hurt anyone before so deeply, but now she has hurt Tadase. The next morning, she doesn't know how she will act around Tadase, and sighs. Ran tries cheering her up, saying that smiles are not forbidden, but Amu is still depressed. Meanwhile at Tadase's house, Kiseki questions him if something happened the other day that's causing him to act strangely. Tadase doesn't resond, angering Kiseki, who calls him "Prince", to lighten to mood. Tadase doesn't Character Change, shocking Kiseki. Tadase finally replies with a fake smile that he is fine.
At school, Amu is uncomfortable walking into the Royal Garden. She is unsure how to act towards Tadase, but when she walks in, he isn't there yet. Yaya cheerfully shows Amu the article in the newspaper, pointing out the "Best Couple" picture of Amu and Tadase. Amu becomes saddened again, causing Yaya and the other Guardians to worry. Yaya asks what's wrong, but gets a "Nothing, I'm fine," from Amu. Yaya whispers to Rima that Amu is acting strange, and Rima wonders if something happened between her and Tadase. Kiseki appears, telling everyone that Tadase is absent due to a cold, but it's not serious. Amu is relieved by this, but asks herself why. Yaya says that everyone should go to visit him, and Nagihiko volunteers Amu to go representing all of them after school, as to not overwhelm him while being sick. Amu wearily agrees. Ran, Miki and Suu smile at him when he winks in their direction.
At Easter, one of the scientists tells the director that now they have control of Ikuto by using a tuning fork that they created. The director says that it's time for stage 2 of his plan, and then it shows Ikuto all alone in a dark room, looking scared and defenseless and defeated. He has indeed been captured by Easter.
Lulu and Nana are at the park, and Nana senses a lost child. Then it shows Amu walking to Tadase's house, looking nervous and sad. Suddenly Lulu and Nana round the corner, and she sees Amu. Nana wonders if the lost child is Amu. Amu, constantly sighing, makes Lulu Character Change and tell her(in an accent) to just spit out what's wrong. Embarrassed by her outburst, Lulu runs off, leaving Amu slightly smiling. Amu is then at the mall, when a girl comes up and asks her if she's seen a girl who looks exactly like her. Amu says she hasn't, and the girl sadly walks away. Then a girl who looks identical to the one before asks Amu the same thing, and the twins, Nami and Nemi, reunite. They help Amu become happy for the moment, until she remembers Tadase and reverts back to her depression. Ran, Miki, and Suu convince her that she needs to talk to Tadase and tell him the truth, instead of avoiding him forever. Cheered up a bit by their helpful words, Amu agrees. Suu then asks aloud if Tadase really has a cold, and Ran yells at her for saying something wrong again, which upsets Amu. It makes her think that Tadase made it up so that he could avoid Amu. Amu decides that she can't see him if he's trying to avoid her as well. Lulu is trying to find Amu again, but instead sees Nami and Nemi, who look lost. They both like their Senpai, causing them both jealously and sadness towards each other. Lulu gives them the pendants. Miki suddenly senses an ? egg, so Amu follows to find the twins, who are fighting. They both transform into Twin Dream, and attack each other. Amu Character Transforms into Amulet Heart, and Rima and Yaya(who caught up to her with Nagihiko) transform into Clown Drop and Dear Baby to stop the twins' fighting. Rima uses Tightrope Dancer to tie them up, but before Amu can cleanse them, they break the ropes. The twins shoot ice and fire at Amu, who blocks using her pom-poms. Then she starts to think about Tadase, getting distracted, and gets hit out of the way. Nagihiko then tells her that no matter what happened between her and Tadase, she's not alone. Amu then concludes that she needs to be herself. She uses Open Heart on them, and they apologize to each other. Amu goes to Tadase's house, but no one is home. She says she will try to talk to him tomorrow, making her Shugo Charas happy that she's back to normal. At the same time, Tadase is on a swing, telling Kiseki what happened between them. He tells Kiseki that tomorrow he will talk things over with Amu.

Airdate: April 18, 2009
Ikuto is still inside the dark room. Then his step-father, the director, comes in, telling him that he can't escape and that Ikuto should have just listened to him from the beginning. He tells Ikuto to not forget that he is legally the director's son. Ikuto glances up at the ceiling after he is gone, and sees his violin, glowing with a dark purple aura.
At Amu's house, she is in her bedroom, thinking of what to say to Tadase when they get to talk. Su suggests she make him some tasty treats. Miki suggests she write him a card expressing how she feels. Ran says she should write him a song. The three then start to argue over what Amu should do. Suddenly Yoru slams into her window, looking exhausted, and they let him in. He guzzled down a whole glass of water and tells Amu that Ikuto is in trouble. Amu acts bitter to Ikuto's name, asking why she should save him even after he said those mean things to Tadase. Yoru begs her, saying that she's the only one who can save him, but Amu runs out of the house, stressed.
Kukai runs out of a market, carrying to full grocery bags. He runs by the swing where Tadase is, seeing him. Tadase sneezes, having been there the whole day. Kiseki suggests that Tadase goes home before his cold comes back. Then Kukai comes and talks to him, explaining that his older brothers are coming over. Tadase enviously tells him that he's always wanted an older brother, so Kukai says he should go over to his house. He brings him there, and introduces Tadase to his 4 older brothers. They all are upset by Kukai buying the wrong items, and when he talks back, his eldest brother, Kaido, gets angry and challenges him in a soccer match. Afterwards Kukai and Tadase retire to Kukai's room, talking about him being down. Kukai sensed that Tadase was feeling sad. Kukai mentions Ikuto being like Tadase's older brother when they were young; he reminds Tadase that the two were as close as brothers. Kiseki then says that Ikuto betrayed Tadase.
Tadase explains to Kukai that he has hated Ikuto for so long that he's forgotten that he wanted to protect everyone around him from being unhappy; that includes Ikuto.
Amu is found by Ran, Miki, and Su on the same swing Tadase has sat in. She tells them that she had lied because she didn't want anyone to hate her, but she just ended up hurting Ikuto and Tadase. Then Ran decides that her being sad time is all over, and the three remind Amu of how great she is. Then Utau texts her, saying that she's far away for work at the moment, and that Amu has to take care of Ikuto while she's gone. Then Amu Character Transforms into Amulet Heart, realizing that she shouldn't be depressed any longer. Yoru is then seen outside calling Ikuto's name in worry, until Amu shows up next to him and tells them that they'll save Ikuto.
Once again she hears the A string of a violin, just as Tadase does. They both run off to find where it came from. Amu is lead to the abandoned amusement park, where she sees people that are missing their heart's eggs. Yoru flies around looking for his owner, and Amu finally spots Ikuto atop of a merry-go-round, playing his violin, which is glowing purple. As soon as he stops playing, X eggs appear, floating above Amu. She shouts to Ikuto, but he doesn't respond. Instead, a black egg comes from the violin, and Ikuto transforms into Death Rebel. His violin turns into a long scythe. Yoru sees Ikuto's dimmed eyes and knows he is under a spell. Ikuto goes after Amu to attack, and they battle. (Amu is dodging his swings the whole time.) Finally, Amu is standing in front of the teacup ride that her and Ikuto rode on. She says she cannot fight Ikuto. Instead, as he heads to attack her, she blocks the ride, and...at the last moment, Tadase appears, blocking Ikuto's scythe with his own staff.

Amu asks why wasn't Yua able to sing in the first place and Cecil said that Yua couldn't sing in front of other people and only when she is by herself. Yua could not sing in front of Cecil either and that is why Cecil has to watch in secret. Cecil also mentions that Yua is trying to get herself to hate singing but Nagihiko says there must be some explination.

Amu asks her if there is a reason she can't sing. Yua confesses that she thought that when she saw Amu again, that she could sing with Amu there. Yua says that she is hopeless and runs away.

It's cleaning day for the entire school. Rima and Yaya are cleaning around a fountain when Yaya gets sick of it and throws her broom. She spins a statue of a frog on the fountain around and around. Suddenly, a secret passageway opens. Yaya drags Rima, Pepe, and Kusukusu into it. They come to a door and Yaya manages to get it open. They go inside to see what lies within, but instead, the door closes behind them and they are trapped. Rima begins to have flashbacks of when she was nearly kidnapped, but Yaya reassures her. Meanwhile, the others are wondering where they went off to. Kusukusu and Pepe soon find a small opening in the room they are in and crawl through it. Yaya tells Rima she is just a big baby at heart and scoots closer to her. Rima leans Yaya's head on her shoulder and tells her a story. Afterwards, they both fall asleep. They finally find the other Guardians and tell them where Rima and Yaya are. The other Guardians have found the secret passageway and soon find Rima and Yaya after opening the door. They wake them up and take them back to the Royal Garden. Tsukasa stops by and tells them that he built the room and that it was fun. However, they disagree, so he gives them cake as an apology.
