However, on that day, Wife and Suzy along with many other customers, were scammed from their purchases. In the same episode and the following chapter, Zatch sees Praying Mantis Joe being beaten by his co-actor and got upset. But as he watches the stage play of Prantis Mantis Joe, he reconsiders doubting his hero's skills. It was during that time when everyone found out they were scammed out of their purchases. The children who were crying wanted Praying Mantis Joe to save everyone, but Joe's actor Yabuki was too scared and weak to help everyone. Zatch was then convinced his "hero" was weak and fake. As for the scammed purchases everyone made, it was revealed that the store manager scammed everyone out of their money. Yabuki eventually gains enough confidence to stand up against the store manager and his goons but the "weak" Praying Mantis Joe gets beaten up but still tries to be a hero. Wife was the one who saves the day but Zatch gave Joe the credit and everyone got their refunds from their scammed purchases.
