To everyone staggering surprise however, through his new stance Sumibi Gyoukaku, Rintaro manages to stop Marokichi's charge and making him tripping to another school building, which reverts Marokichi into his normal state. As Rintaro is shocked to see the revelation, Marokichi apologizes to Rintaro while revealing his Gachimuchi Syndrome, a disease that enable him to transform into a bulky monster whenever he is sexually aroused to any girl he sees but costing his sense and reason.
