You know that girl that you have your hearts on? Well, she's dead! Hahaha. I ordered her death!!! Now throw your anger! Lash out at the world! Put a bullet into my head!! Become who you truly are, a ruthless killer!!!"
When Venoms start attacking Hong Kong hoping to instigate a civil war between North and South China (in the FMP world, mainland China is divided between the Communist North and the Nationalist South), Sousuke just stares at the world like he doesn't give a damn. But then, a voice yells at him "Sousuke! What the heck are you just standing there for!!!" He turns around and sees....Chidori Kaname.
