He greets Elie and introduces himself as Go, and has been expecting him, but then surprised that the guest was a girl. Go orders his crew around, telling them to start again.
The dark room Elie entered was just a film set. Go thought that the Rave Master was a strong guy, but was relieved to know is just a girl. He then tells two of his crew members to rearrange the settings, and give Elie a complete makeover. As the scene begins its retake, Go halts Elie from exiting gate after knowing Go is not the man she was searching.
As Haru and Plue are running towards the mansion, Go denies opening the gate for Elie and demands that she fights him. Elie keeps telling it was a misunderstanding because she was looking for the thunder man, but Go keeps insisting by proving his strength by punching the iron gate. He tries to prove once more by using his "Storm Attack", leaving many marks on the iron door. Elie is still unimpressed, so Go prepare his Go Hurricane Attack. But before he can use the attack, Haru blows down the door down with his Explosion and sends Go flying across the room.

Back at the Thunder mansion, Rosa snaps her finger and music begins to play. She begins dancing in which the music controls all men who hear to begin dancing at her rhythm, minus Plue who dances but stops making it somewhat immune. Rosa stops the music leaving all the men drop to the floor exhausted. Haru asks Rosa to stop the rain, but she quickly denies his request telling him that it was for their movie. Haru tries to explain the condition of the village, but Rosa ignores him and keeps on talking about the movie. She then snaps her fingers again causing all the males to dance once more.
Rosa challenges Elie to a fight believing her to be the Rave Master. Elie refuses to fight, but Rosa takes out her chain sword and clashes with Elie with her Dancing Wolf attack.

Manga & Anime Differences
- In the anime, after Go realizes Elie is a girl when he "cuts the scene" he brings in makeup people to "fix" Elie's face with makeup, and they end up making her look like a clown. In the manga, this does not happen.
- In the dubbed version when Rosa and Elie were fighting (While Haru, Plue and the men were dancing) a few seconds were cut out of the episode where Rosa knee buts Elie in the stomach, however you can still see the impact and Elie crouching down holding her stomach in!
- At this point, the anime is up to Manga Volume 4.
