In Episode 7, Osanai arrives at the abandoned warehouse with his gang and claims that they heard that the Manji gang was looking for Moebius, so they came looking for them. Osanai easily defeats Pah, but Mikey intervenes and wins the fight against the enemy leader with a quick kick. However, Osanai tries to stab Mikey with a broken bottle. Draken stops him and knocks him unconscious. Suddenly, police sirens are heard. When the two gangs begin to leave, Pah stabs Osanai and is subsequently arrested. Takemichi, Draken, and the others are forced to leave him behind.
While escaping, Takemichi passes out from the beatings he received and is subsequently hospitalized. When he wakes up, Emma tells him that Manji has split into two factions, with Mikey leading one and Draken the other. Later, at Takemichi’s house, Mikey and Draken visit him at the same time. The situation quickly escalates and two of them start throwing objects in front of Takemichi’s house. In episode 8, Takemichi was finally able to go after the other two boys for destroying his things. This could lead to a reconciliation between the captain and Manji’s vice captain. Hinata could ask Takemichi to accompany her to a festival.
