An unknown character is seen in a dark room, muttering something about 'trying to run away'. Another unknown character is seen falling through a portal and eventually lands in a graveyard, where Kon finds her. A flashback reveals that she, along with Mitsuki, Shanghai and Hourai, went there to practise some danmaku. The character introduces herself as 'Kukuri Tachibana, but has to communicate via a sketchbook and pen, due to being mute. She is introduced to Reimu, Marisa, Alice and Yukari later, with both Marisa and Alice quite shocked at her power to manifest her soul. Reimu reluctantly agrees to help her train. Meanwhile, Mima goes off to buy some sesshoseseki from Miyuki. Team 8 later shows up, challenging Reimu and the 'children' to a duel (with Kay and Sachiko appearing to help). Team 8 is eventually defeated, but then the unknown character in the beginning (his name is revealed to be Kazuhiro) shows up, and not only takes away Team 8's sesshoseseki, but also kidnaps Kon and Kukuri. The next day, Yukari receives a ransom letter from Kazuhiro. The heroes then arrive at the MAlice household, and decide to give Kazuhiro the ransom he wants, but shortly thereafter attack him. Team 8 then arrives, with Rumia saying that they want to join in as well. Later, at the ransom point, Yuuka Falcon punches Kazuhiro, and all the heroines confront Kazuhiro, who reveals he wanted to collect the sesshoseseki and revive the Kyuubi (a.k.a Tamamo no Mae) for its great powers. However, Kukuri then stabs him, and eventually Kon, Rin and Utsuho, and then steals the sesshoseseki from Yukari's gaps (which coincidentally was the one that spawned the events of Act 6). Kukuri apologizes for this, saying that she didn't wanted anyone else to suffer. She then revives the Kyuubi into her body. For a brief moment, however, still conscious, she revives Kon, Rin and Utsuho. Yasora then says she feels 'a sort of peace', while Utsuho says not, in which a few seconds later her third leg 'upgrades'. Everyone then splits into groups of two and attacks Tamamo-no-mae. Shortly after her second spell card, the Komeji Sisters arrive, and Satori shoots Kyuubi with her 'Horrifying Reminiscence', which allowed her to see Kukuri's memories. Kyuubi, after realizing this, summons Kukuri's angel, but Satori immediately stops her by copying Alice's 'Goliath Doll' spell and applying it to a zombie fairy. During Tamamo's fourth spell card, Orin arrives and restrains the angel once again, allowing the good guys to defeat Tamamo. In the final spell card, everyone combines their powers and, via a spell Yukari developed, transfers them to Reimu, who uses her powerful 'Hax Sign [You just plain f****ing lose -Gensokyo's around you-]' to defeat Tamamo. Later, Kukuri regains her body, and sorrowfully questions the good guys as to why they didn't kill her, when suddenly, Yasora takes over Utsuho's body and chides her for doing so. Kazuko and Chisato then offers her to find a new home in the outside world. Yasora then has a small chat with Rumia, explaining to her that she is going to 'rest' for awhile, and then lays dormant once again inside Utsuho. In the epilogue, Reimu says that Kazuko and Chisato have finally found someone to adopt Kukuri, and that Team 8 has decided to stop doing evil for awhile. She then, however, says she feels like solving another incident.
