The Fugitive Otaru!
Otaru is still a wanted fugitive in Xian, and Lime, Cherry, and Bloodberry don't have any memories of their life with Otaru. Bloodberry has become mixed up with some bad company, but when the circus comes to town, some old friends show up to help her out. Meanwhile, when an injured Otaru shows up in a hospital, he awakens to find Lime and Cherry - who have absolutely no idea who he is! But even though they don't know him, when they are under attack, Otaru still fights to save them. Lime, Cherry, and Bloodberry are now to wonder who this strange man is who fights so hard to protect them. And why do they seem to have these funny feelings whenever he's around?
