She managed to grab Sawa’s hand and throw Sawa’s sword away. After pinning Sawa with the ground, she strangles Sawa, who tried to escape. Before she draws her soul out, Sawa kicks Tsuki and frees herself. She decided to exchange blows with her using hand-to-hand combat. Sawa landed a dropkick that sends Tsuki flying, and she smashes with a wooden building nearby.
When Tsuki is recovering, Sawa runs towards her sword and unpin it with the ground. Tsuki came back from the explosion and decided to take the fight into the sky.
