Morris tells her that he will be moving forward with his investigation on AUZA Tech. Right after that, we get to see AUZA Tech CEO having a word with Yamaji regarding Zai and the power plant massacre. While the CEO was not in favor of calling him back again, Yamaji firmly took his stand by saying that engaging with Higan when he has his Gusko gear would have been a foolish move.

The CEO’s concerns were pretty different from those of Yamaji. This results in a little spad between them in which Yamaji event threatens to kill him. The atmoshphere around Yamaji was pretty diffrent from what we’ve seen previously. We can see a statue of a scary entity and a crow sitting on it. This could be a hidden message that we can get to see a full-fledged Higan vs Zai battle super soon. The episode moves forward, showing Emma and Jason trying to hack the AUZA tech servers.

However, things get a little messy here as they are attacked by Big D. Well, that’s not a problem, because Ninja Kamui comes to their rescue right away. Along with Big D, an army from AUZA tech also joins the battle against Higan. However, Higan is not alone; Morris joins the battle along with Emma. The battle between Higan and Big D could be dubbed one of the best fights in Ninja Kamui. Higan puts a sword in Big D’s chest.

Ninja Kamui Episode 9 Ending Explained

While Big D successfully saves Higan from the attack, Emma loses her life this time. The episode ends with Emma’s body being lit and Higan getting another reason to destroy the organization. We can see Higan filled with rage, saying it’s time to put an end to this.

Nonetheless, the last glimpse of Zai admiring his Gusoku gear has sparked curiosity amongst the fans. The battle between Zai and Higan has been pending for a long time. And the way Ninja Kamui’s story is moving forward, high chances are that Higan VS Zai will be the most important battle of the anime. At this moment we can’s say that the very next episode of the anime will show the most anticipated battle. But yes, the wait of the fans will be over super soon.
