The penultimate chapter of the story arc that began 45 issues ago! Though denied a final showdown with Yuudai, there is still much for Ricky Feeple to face. With the Shidoshi leader gone and his living magic-stabilizer now freed, his stronghold and the very world around Quagmire start coming apart. Ricky must help his allies save those still trapped in Yuudai's fortress—and then he has to face the Elder Stars of the ninja world. Ricky's mother was ordered to give up her position as one of them, and they are NOT pleased that she passed her title of Red Ninja on to Ricky instead!
