Takayama was overwhelmed by the outbreak of Them ( zombies) on Fujimi High School. He was able to use his best one of Them with Judo, but the numbers were only increasing as more and more students became infected. He would have a psychotic break down and refused to believe the reality he was witnessing. Convincing himself that this was a dream, he staggered through the blood soaked halls of the school and jumped form the top of the building. He died immediately.
