Episode Guide: As You Are - Rockaku claims that Maiko can't take Daisuke's place because she is too weak. Maiko takes a bet that says if she can reach the end of the desert on her own, since her dragon can't fly, then she gets to take the injured Daisuke's place. Reiji tries to convince Maiko not to, but Rockaku agrees to the condition. Maiko starts to realize how hard it really is. After being chased quite a ways, she finds an abandoned music house where she discovers a tiny pink dragon that tells the story of it. As the music house soon comes under attack, it's up to Maiko to protect it. But, can she do it and still make it across the desert?
