Otose sent a box of crab to the Yoruzuya. But before they can divide the crab's legs to themselves, one of them secretly stole one of the legs of the crab, cause them to have another mental fights with each other for the possession of the crab.


After receiving a whole crab from Otose the Yorozuya set about splitting it between the three of them, however there’s ten legs and three of them. As if by fate there’s a sudden blackout. They manage to get the lights back on only to find that one of the legs is missing. This happens a few times but while it’s obvious who’s been taking them, they blame it on a imaginary gorilla that broke in. Sick of his friends' endless thievery, Shinpachi then lights a candle to stop this and reveals that he has plans of his own to take the crab for himself. However as he’s splitting it up he finds the legs gone, realising how foolish he was not to look at the bigger picture that Gintoki and Kagura had been looking at, to take all of the crab's legs. So with the power back on he thinks ahead as to how things are going to carry out, looking back at Gintoki’s grab for the claws as an attempt to inflate their worth, and so he uses this against him to take the body for himself. Which Gintoki sees as an attempt to take the crab paste princess, Kanimisuhime. Unfortunately in doing this he’s fallen into Gintoki’s trap of cooking the body meet with rice, however Kagura sneaks up on him and takes the meat within the claws for herself, and while he still has Kanimisuhime, Shinpachi counters him by using the crab shell for flavour with vegetables. Seeing through how crab on rice only looks appetising on the surface. But before the battle is over Kagura intervenes once more and takes it all for herself by combining the two, creating a castle in the sky and revealing her true identity and going one step further by adding an egg. However while all hope may be lost for them, Kanimisuhime appears before Gintoki and Shinpachi and tells them how crab is meant to bring everyone together, not divide them, so by using her they must remedy this situation. Making Kagura lose her appetite and allowing them to have a crab party themselves, only to realise that the cheap crab imitation meat tastes better than the real thing.
