Shikizakura Episode 12 reveals the traitor in the Myojin Family and the final Shrine Maiden Ritual. Oka has decided to sacrifice herself for the Ritual to save humankind. She knows that if she closes the gate between the Nether Realm and Human Realm, she will send the Onis back, and they die after that. The Myojin Family has agreed to that since they don’t have any other solution. In Shikizakura’s latest episode, Oka’s sister Benio accepts that Oka had to complete the Ritual to annihilate the Onis once and for all.
Ryo, Haruko, Shuten, and Benio protect the Shrine so the Onis cannot interfere and stop the Ritual. Oka’s father, Shuten, is proud of her daughter even though he might end up losing her after the Ritual. Ryo reminded Haruko about their duty and told her not to mention Shuten’s name. He told Shuten that they would wield Yorois and fight with the Onis if they tried to interfere with the Ritual. Benio guards the gate, and Ryo and Haruko watch Oka dance the Ritual. Oka realizes that she has to do it for everyone and protect her memories with them.
She realizes that she can’t let her friends die in the hands of the Onis, and a sacrifice is better than letting the whole world die. Oka summons her peers to block the gate between the Nether Realm and Human Realm. Kippei and Kakeru realize that they have to stop the Ritual since they have found a better solution that doesn’t include Oka sacrificing herself. They are middle of the town, and Kippei is riding a bike, and they encounter crystal on the road. Kakeru realizes that they have entered the Onis’ territory and move fast.
