Before Kazu could be completely killed, Saeko Busujima appeared and used her bokken to quickly crush the skulls of Them. She introduced herself and praised him for protecting the doctor. After asking his name, Saeko asked him if he would wish her to finish him off before he could change. Initially shocked at the proposal, with a smile he accepted the offer. Shizika attempted to protest, but Saeko told her that this was to protect his honor. With a skillfully swift strike, she crushed Kazu skull in a fast, painless death. He was the first living human she ever killed.
