Before the princesses can even fight Zero, the three need to battle against her close ally, Riku. The official preview trailer for "Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon" Episode 23 is out and it teases a duel between Setsuna and Riku.

Meanwhile, Setsuna, Towa and Moroha are able to find Zero using remnants of her Azusa no Yumihari. However, Riku stands in their way as he challenges the princesses to a fight. In the meantime, Zero is surprised that the princesses are attempting to take revenge this time.

In the previous episode, Zero disguises herself as a woman named Otsuyu and meets Miroku. She wants him to show her the right path. He questions her if she is even human. In response, she tells him that he can call her a devilish woman.

He asks her about her true purpose and this is when Zero reveals that she wants him to release the half-demon girl's seal.
