The Return of the Shaman's Ambition is the fifth chapter of Shaman King: Flowers.
At the hospital, Alumi Niumbirch knocks Hana Asakura out after he insults her chest size and leaves after lecturing Hana's companions. After Ryunosuke Umemiya stops Hana from getting into a fight with Ryuji Ichihara (also recovering in the hospital), he explains why Alumi Niumbirch has arrived in West Tokyo. The night before, Alumi Niumbirch revealed the existence of the "Flower of Maize", an upcoming battle that both Hana and the Asakura branch family have a stake in. The arrival of the Hana-gumi intimidated Luka Asakura and Yohane Asakura into retreating, after which introduces herself, as "Alumi Niumbirch." While Hana is dismissive of Ryu's explanation, Ryu recalls how the Officiant Rutherfor had alluded to the "Flower of Maize" during the previous Shaman Fight and wonders what Tamao Tamamura has gone to investigate in Kyoto.
