Impressed by his skillful tea preparation whilst standing up to see auras has been lost, Tsubaki sees Jun Akisato as a potential B-class RyuseiRanger he worked to save the day. Wanting to learn more about him and get a chance to ask, Tsubaki helps Jun for training on tea ceremony preparation and flower arrangement in order to writes her own poem.
Tsubaki and her friends are having lunch when they are being evicted from their spot by two older boys before the third year students Hikari "Ray" Harukawa and Jun Akisato interfered to defuse the situation.
After watching Jun doing archery, Tsubaki attempts to ask him to join as the committee member but ends up missing him while lamenting that she would not see him at school. Daisuke suggests to talk to Jun at the tea ceremony club, knowing that Jun will be un-interested.
Meeting with Jun, Tsubaki is greeted with a splash of green tea to her uniform as she opens the door. Jun tells her he is trying to do something with green tea, but he does not know what it is yet. He also reveals that his ability to see floral auras has been lost.

Over the course of a few days, Tsubaki helps Jun with his aura and tidies his workplace. She decides to training on making a flower arrangement and tea ceremony preparation to help support him. On finishing the arrangement, he is able to see the aura.
Tsubaki writes a new poem when Thrash appears and targets the archer Daichi Chitose's dream. Thrash, denouncing Jun's values, then transform Daichi's dream into Fukisokusha Wire Hetimarl that takes Tsubaki as hostage while attacking Ryusei Yellow and Ryusei Black. Jun, snapping out of the trace, is determined Tsubaki's favor for being senpai and transform into Ryusei Green as he learns to control the accuracy of aiming skill while overpowers Wire Hetimarl with Blossom Shower, allowing for Tsubaki to defeat the Fukisokusha.
Scarve plays the tone of rampage that repairs and enlarges Hetimarl in attempt to attack them, but SanKishi saved Tsubaki. Watching SanKishi takes out DroneCore, Fauna learned from Fleur that Ray is not here. With Thundar's help, Nagisa combines with his card into alternate form: SanKishi Eagle. With this, SanKishi Eagle destroy Hetimarl with Raitanken's finishing attack: Ryusei Raiujuujizen and the two new Sigma Coords has gained.
