In this chapter, the three lords discuss the upcoming re-election of the emperor. The three lords agree that Caius isn't strong enough to rule heaven, and they're worried that he'll let the "hell emperor escape" . Caius, however, is more reasonable than his father. He tells the lords that the election will take place in January, and that the new emperor will be chosen by a vote of the five lords. The new emperor, he says, will have to fight with Caius's son-in-law, the current emperor, and the other three lords. If Caius wins, he will rule heaven for the rest of eternity. But if Caius loses, he's going to be a demon king. The lords are worried that the re-electio will be dangerous in the outer space, and Caius is worried that his daughter will die if he doesn't go with them. He's worried that they won't be able to keep their daughter alive, since she's a spirit maiden, and she has power from outer space. They decide to go to outer space to pick up Yumo, who was found by Caius in the human realm.
