Shocking Mall 2014 is the ninth chapter of Shaman King: Flowers.
Ryuji Ichihara is stunned to see how easily he can defeat Hana Asakura, who ruefully realizes how much he has depended on Amidamaru in fights as he's knocked out. A reluctant Ryuji is coerced by Luka Asakura to continue fighting after she attacks his subordinates and is surprised to see Luka's oversoul. Seeing that Ryuji's latent spiritual sense has awakened, Luka reveals that Hana's fighting ability came from a samurai ghost. Desperate to help Hana, Yohane Asakura finds that Luka has also turned Daikyoh Oboro into stone. When he suspects that Luka is being controlled by the mysterious third spirit that forms the core of her oversoul, Luka dismisses him and orders Ryuji to finish Hana. Meanwhile, Hana has a flashback of the past, when his father tried to defend an infant Hana and his mother from an attacking helicopter in a foreign country. Luka is disappointed to see Hana regain consciousness and prepares to fight back.
