Ten years later, the Notsubo resurfaces at Nagatoro, feeding on humans. It evaded Sabaki and later fought Todoroki and Armed Hibiki until Shuki arrives to finish her decade fight, until the Notsubo escaped yet again. It would later appear again and pursued Akira, close to eating her as Shuki intended. But Zanki resumed his Oni form to save Akira, only for the Notsugo to eat Shuki. However, Shuki managed to get her revenge, fatally wounding herself to incapitate the monster for an enraged Zanki to finish off with his Raiden Zanshin.
