Shiki taunts Akira, for grieving over the loss of Keisuke, and Akira grows angry, and attacks Shiki, but Shiki is easily able to block Akira’s attacks. Shiki swings for a deadly blow, but Rin intercepts. Rin discovers that Keisuke was killed, and tells Akira that fighting Shiki isn’t worth it. Akira doesn’t listen and still goes to attack Shiki. Rin gives up on convincing Akira otherwise, and helps his comrade fight Shiki.

There is a massive explosion, and Shiki escapes, only to be cornered by the CFC forces, which he easily defeats. Nano rescues Rin and Akira, and takes them to the road, from where they would be able to find Motomi. Nano explains to Akira and Rin that he has no reason to keep living, but Akira says that Nano could try to avoid the military and live normally. Nano gives Akira his knife, and they part ways. Nano fights his way through Toshima, killing the military troops in his way as Rin and Akira head off to meet up with Motomi.

Motomi, Akira, and Rin escape Toshima, as it begins to snow, through the underground sewers, leaving the carnage that covers Toshima. When the trio escapes, Akira is able to make a peaceful life for himself. Akira visits Rin in the hospital, and promises that he will continue to visit Rin in the hospital until he gets better.


Akira leaves the hospital, only to come across Motomi who started to work for the Nikko group, and possesses close ties to Toshima once more. Akira asks Motomi about Toshima, and it’s current state. Motomi tells Akira that a new form of Line is on the streets. Motomi invites Akira to dinner, but Akira refuses.
