Enraged at Yuzuha, Taiju vows to kill her. Mitsuya is called in by Chifuyu and intervenes in the fight, but he is heavily wounded once Inui and Koko arrive to assist Taiju. Realizing they are at a disadvantage, Mitsuya forms a plan where Takemichi and Chifuyu will fight Koko and Inui while he and Hakkai will fight Taiju. However, Hakkai still fears Taiju and the Tokyo Manji Gang quickly gets taken down. Powered by his resolve, Takemichi persists against Taiju, declaring he will take over the Black Dragons.
