In the previous chapter, we were introduced to new members of the Order, adding complexity to Uzuki’s mission to dismantle the JAA. The new recruits pose threats not just to Uzuki but also to Sakamoto and Nagumo. This development set the stage for an intense confrontation in the future.

Shishiba, a member of the Order, warned Oki about the formidable trio of Sakamoto, Nagumo, and Uzuki, each a master in their own right. Dissatisfied with the current Order members, Oki recruited two new operatives: Torres, an elderly man with a penchant for gambling, and Tanabata, a musician whose tunes have a lethal undertone. Torres, with his immense strength and resilience, poses a direct threat to Sakamoto and Nagumo. Conversely, Tanabata can incapacitate his opponents with his music, making him a formidable adversary.

The chapter showcased Shishiba’s failed attempt to intimidate Torres, as his hammer shattered upon contact with Torres. Meanwhile, Tanabata’s music, imbued with the essence of his first kill, temporarily incapacitated Osaragi, highlighting his unique and deadly abilities.

Disguised as Nagumo, Sakamoto ventured out to buy a birthday cake for Hana. Their outing took a tense turn when they encountered the Order members. The chapter concluded with a suspenseful exchange of glances between Sakamoto and Torres, leaving readers on edge. With their disguises potentially compromised, the trio will likely have to navigate a delicate situation to avoid detection while protecting Hana and the others.
