Escape of the Dead

When Fujimi High School was hit by the outbreak, Yamada was held up with a few members of his class and his teacher, Koichi Shidou. when they noticed a group of students being led by Takashi Komuro to the schools minibus, Shidou led them all outside and to attempt to join this escape. Once on the bus, they broke through the school's iron gate and were free. After Tsunoda lashed out at Takashi in frustration, Shidou took the opportunity to claim that that a leader was needed. He gave a grand speech and Yamada and many others on the bus fell into. While they waited for the bus to cross the local bridge, Shidou had seduced Yamada and others into what would become the Order of Shidou, a cult based around this power hungry teacher's ego. The members of Team Takashi who opposed him left the bus completely to follow their own path in search of their families.

Yamada was the first person of Shidou's new sect to have second thoughts. While he had organized orgies for his followers, Yamada expressed a desire to find his family. Tsunoda and Miku Yuuki tainted him and had sex right in front of him. For questioning their leader, he was thrown form the bus in the rain and left to die. Yamada beat on the door and pleaded to be allowed to return, promising never to question him again. Shidou ignored his cries as he gave a sermon, and the others only listened as he was grabbed and eaten alive by Them.
