Rules. Rules. Rules. In order to survive this horrible prison, Ganta must collect the prison currency, cast points. Welcome to the dog race show, a deadly attraction for all to enjoy. With Shiro by his side, it is time to begin the race for his life.
Ganta meets a fellow inmate, You Takami, who tells him that he needs to earn Cast Points to buy decent meals in the prison as well as to buy Candy, an antidote necessary to keep him alive from the poison that prisoners are infected with by their collar. Upon learning that he can win a big prize in a 'Dog Race' to purchase the Candy he needs to survive, he and Shiro decide to enter it but soon learn that the track is filled with death traps. Thanks in part to Shiro's innocent manner, the two manage to get to the final stage where they are forced to face off against a feared inmate, Kasumasi and are told that the last person holding a ball without falling into the spike pit is the winner. Ganta decides to stand up to Kasumasi who falls to his death. In the final moments, Ganta sacrifices the ball and the prize to save Shiro from falling and keep their promise of eating the runner-up prize.
