So, it won’t be easy for Yayoi and her party to deal with the upcoming threat, especially when the boy spirit continues to create chaos.

As for the boy spirit, he is all set to end Otogiri. But with the latter in her third stage, it will be challenging for him to stop her. It will ultimately lead to a massive clash between the two in Dark Gathering Episode 22. Whether Otogiri wins remains unclear, but there are stills hints that Yayoi will enter the battle to calm things down. Hence, the woman’s spirit may win. However, to stop her, Yayoi may summon another cursed spirit to end this chapter. There’s also a possibility that she may free Otogiri up and try to catch another dark Pokemon.
A Quick Recap!
The previous episode began with Yayoi informing others to keep their guards up after watching the boy spirit eating Shami’s remains. She also told everyone that the spirit was an S-rank and warned Eiko and Keitaro about his curse and its danger. Although they were cursed, Yayoi suggested eliminating the sketchbook to stop this battle. However, several spirits appeared when they tried to steal it, pushing the trio into danger. Eiko and Yayoi tried to save Keitaro. However, the former was sent to an enclosed area where the woman and man spirits surrounded her. But her doll saved her.
Finally, the duo managed to save Keitaro and stole the sketchbook from the boy’s spirit hands. But it provoked him, and he attacked Yayoi. However, she summoned Otogiri, which led to a massive battle between the two. She realized the boy’s spirit was more troublesome as the battle progressed. So, Otogiri summoned butterflies to attack the spirit. Yayoi then told Eiko and Keitaro to stay away from the butterflies as it could make things ugly. It then helped Otogiri to drain the boy’s spirit life force. However, to get rid of Otogiri’s spirit, the trio showed her a mirror showing how ugly she looked. It then forced the spirit to go to her third stage.
