While cleaning up Shinichiro, he heard Baji shouting asking Mikey to stop and immediately ran to the property’s garden to see that Mikey had attacked Haruchiyo. The blond boy was surrounded by a black mist that represented his dark impulses.

Later that night, Shinichiro takes Manjiro to the hospital so the boy can apologize to Sanzo. Despite Mickey’s best attempts, Haruchio remained unresponsive. Older brother Sano asked Sanzo to forgive Mickey one day and remain his friend, a promise that Haruchio was happy to make.
