Though Kazuya is too busy to join, Bakura brings Kiriha, Kukuri and Kokuyou into Kazuya's dream with her to demonstrate why she likes to collect pillows.

She, Kukuri, Kiriha, Kokuyou and Kasumi enter Kazuya's dream where they find him flirting with a female version of himself.[4]

In the aftermath of Kanaka Kagami's revival and subsequent sealing, Bakura and Ouhi Oriobana visit Kazuya's home and meet with him when he awakens three days after the event.[5][6] After explaining what transpired, they give Kazuya a brief moment to grieve before Ouhi tells him that he must be the one to defeat Kanaka. While Kazuya gets ready, Ouhi discusses with Bakura her surprise of how immediate Kazuya's response was. Bakura tells Ouhi she knew Kazuya would respond right away since she often spends time with him within the pillow. Kazuya returns and they explain their plan to use an assortment of pillows from around the house to peer into past and find clues to defeating Kanaka. As they go to sleep, Ouhi teases Kazuya and Bakura begins to Kazuya Ouhi's real age but Ouhi shuts her up. Within the dream they begin with witnessing Kanaka as child when her family was killed.[6]

Memories of Kanaka Arc

Bakura, Ouhi and Kazuya watch the life of Kanaka through the dream. When witnessing Kanaka effortlessly dispose of the aberration that had killed Suou Sumeragi, they are shocked by Kanaka's display of power. As the dream continues with Kanaka's first encounter with Sunao Sumeragi, Kazuya requests that Bakura switch to one of his memories in an attempt to recall them. Bakura changes the memory to Kazuya's perspective when he was a child, messing with Kiriha's vagina. They watch how Kazuya learned such behaviour from Kasumi, repeating them with Kukuri and Kiriha. Watching further, the witness Kazuya brazenly telling Kiriha, Kukuri and Chisato he loves them, without realizing the full connotation of the phrase. Ouhi mocks Kazuya for inheriting Kanaka's philandering behaviour. Kazuya attempts to deny it by stating the dreams were mixed up but changes the subject when that fails.[7] As they finish witnessing the events of the past, Bakura attempts to comfort Kazuya before noticing that he is not upset but determined.[8]

After finishing with the dream, Bakura and Ouhi bathe with Kazuya under the pretense of giving him a physical examination. While bathing, Kazuya questions how they were able to witness events which none of the pillow owners did themselves. Bakura explains since they are memories of the soul, memories of others can get mixed in. Returning to Kazuya's room, they briefly discuss the difficulty of defeating Kanaka and Azami.[9]

Abilities

Soul's Treasury Passage (魂倉潜り(たきくらくぐり), Takikura Kuguri): Bakura's ability that allows her to enter the dreams or memories of others. As pillows contain reflections of people's souls, her ability lets her bring herself or others into the dream or memories. Those entering the dream must be asleep to do so.[1] By connecting the residual memories of multiple pillows, she can recreate the past using their multiple perspectives.[6] In doing so, they are transferred to the Corridors of the Unconscious, where they can witness the memories play out rather than directly enter and interact with them like a dream.

  • Soul's Treasury Awakening (魂倉覚醒, Takikura Kakusei): Bakura's ability to exit a dream. Though she herself appears to be able to exit dreams without it, others she brings with her cannot depending on the situation.[1]
