Hakurou Shimada, a politician from the Rising Sun Party of Japan, is at a dedication ceremony to the statue that calls attention to a fateful day when three young men gave their lives to drive a truck packed with explosives away from a gathering of people before it exploded. Nearby, Shimada's ex-bodyguard Yamamoto is incensed that he would use the event for his own petty profit, and crashes the party with his own band of supporters.
Both sides are shocked when they discover two dead bodies inside the statue, apparently the two men were after a large stash of gold that Shimada was supposedly hiding somewhere in the area. As all the suspects are gathered, Yuuki Shinjurou believes that Shimada is to blame. However, his answer to Inga's question clears him of blame. Yuuki begins to doubt himself as Shimada tells him about the worthiness of his cause and of the Japanese military.
Eventually, the real culprit turns out to be the sculptor of the statue, but not before Inga rips open a nearby replica of a tank, revealing the cache of gold from the war that Shimada had apparently hidden.
