The next day, after a student council meeting, Mikado and Anri are approached by Aoba who wanted to go on another tour of Ikebukuro since their last one was interrupted by Toramaru. Mikado, remembering Kida's warning, tries to turn Aoba down so that he could look up info on what was endangering the Dollars.
Mikado states that he can't go with Aoba, saying he had some urgent business. Upon hearing this, Aoba began to not so subtly flirt with Anri about accompanying him. Anri is oblivious to Aoba's advances but Mikado panics and says that he will show him around but can't go at night, saying it gets too crowded during golden week. Aoba and Anri agree to meet the next day.
Later, at his apartment Mikado starts asking on the chatroom about anything that might have happened to the Dollars. Kururi and Mairu point him to another website which contains a news report. Mikado learns that several members of Toramaru were attacked in Saitama and beaten severely to the point where many of the were sent to the hospital. Mikado, as the founder, feels responsible for the incident and wonders what he should do.
Mikado then gets a call from Izaya. Having no one else to turn to at the moment, Mikado talks to Izaya for advice on the matter. Izaya mentions the captain of Toramaru, Chikage Rokujou , is in town looking for revenge and suggests that Mikado simply quits the Dollars but Mikado denies that option almost immediately. Izaya takes this as a sign that Mikado is more attached to Dollars than he initially expected and deduces that Mikado is worried that the Dollars are getting out of control.
Izaya also states that even though Mikado wants to solve the issue, he is actually excited about the whole situation. Mikado doesn't entirely deny this, and Izaya ends the conversation by offering his help should Mikado need it, hinting at ulterior motives in the process.
Mikado tries to think of a plan to resolve the incident, but keeps drawing a blank. The feeling of excitement begins to swell up in Mikado at the recent turn of events but he pushes it out of his mind. Someone then knocks on Mikado's door and it is soon revealed to be Aoba. Before Mikado can ask what is happening, he notices several thuggish looking individuals wearing blue standing behind Aoba.
Wearing the same cheerful yet eerie smile, Aoba tells Mikado to come with him. Mikado, Aoba, and the rest of the delinquents arrived at an abandoned factory warehouse. Aoba asks Mikado if he was looking into the incident in Saitama. Mikado confirms that he was, but is shocked when Aoba casually admits that "We did it. Aoba states that it was revenge for chasing everyone halfway across the city several months ago. He also goes on to say that although they attacked Toramaru in the name of the Dollars, Aoba and his group also go by the name Blue Squares.
As Mikado absorbed this information, his cell phone, along with everyone else, began to ring with a message that Chikage Rokujou was attacking Kyouhei and his gang. Ignoring the message, Aoba offers the role of leadership over to Mikado. Mikado is perplexed at the offer and suspects an ulterior motive. Aoba explains that he wouldn't be the leader of the Dollars but specifically of the Blue Squares, who would act as a special unit that only answered to him.
Mikado tries to turn him down, saying he wouldn't get involved in something like that. Aoba then asks why Mikado is smiling if he didn't want what was offered. Mikado tries to deny Aoba's statement but can't get over a strange sense of joy that emanated from the bottom of his heart. Mikado then realized that Aoba was correct but he didn't know why he smiled in the first place. As several thoughts swirl around in Mikado's head, Aoba draws attention to the countless messages left by other Dollars members.
Mikado tries to stall for time but Aoba brings up the meeting with Anri they had set up the day before. Aoba makes subtle threats towards Anri, which causes a sudden surge of "black emotions" to well up in Mikado which he pushes to the back of his mind. The two are interrupted by Celty's ringtone echoing through the warehouse. Having been spotted, Celty explains that she was watching to make sure nothing bad happened and told the others to continue as though she weren't there.
Before Mikado or Aoba can question her further, several Toramaru members also rush in, recognizing Aoba and his gang as the ones who attacked them.
Aoba calls Mikado "Captain" which causes the Toramaru members to turn their attention towards him. Celty explains the situation to Mikado as they meet up with Anri and Akane who are surrounded by members of the Awakusu. Before they can speak, even more Toramaru members arrive demanding they hand over "the kid" Mikado. The Awakusu take it as a threat against Akane and begin to fight the Toramaru members, telling Celty to take Akane to a safe place.
Celty transforms her motorbike to a horse and carriage to accommodate the larger passenger count and the four of them ride away to a parking lot halfway across town. Mikado takes a moment to sort out all that's happened and realizes that Aoba's goal is probably to take control of Dollars and use him as a figure head.
As Mikado thinks of a solution, he gets another disturbing text message on his phone. He goes on to suggest that the Dollars kidnap them to try and threaten Toramaru into calling off their attacks on Dollars. Without thinking, Mikado rushes off to the cafe where they were seen with Anri and Vorona chasing after him.
Mikado arrives just as Non, Rio, and their friends are about to be kidnapped. He tells the others to stop as a fellow member of the Dollars but gets insulted and kicked as a result. The men shove the girls into the back of the van and drive off, leaving a few of their friends including Hiroshi , behind to finish Mikado off. As they beat down on him, Mikado doesn't feel fear but another surge of "black emotions" that he felt earlier as he falls unconscious.
When Mikado comes to, he sees Anri dispatching the rogue Dollars members with Saika. Mikado is ashamed at his helplessness as Anri helps him up. Mikado gets another message, saying that the kidnappers are on their way to stop Kyouhei and Chikage at Raira Academy.
Mikado and Anri head off while Vorona tails them silently. At Raira, they can see Kyouhei and Chikage fighting off in the distance and the kidnappers and the girls approaching slowly in their van. As Mikado turns around, he sees Vorona appear out of nowhere and attack Anri. Anri tells Mikado to run but is stunned by Vorona's flash bomb. Mikado is left on the ground while Anri and Vorona run off to continue their fight.
Mikado is frustrated at being glossed over like that as he waits for his vision to return. When it does, he sees Shizuo standing over him with Vorona's motorbike on his shoulder. Shizuo looks Mikado in the eyes and declares that he's resigning from the Dollars, saying that he wasn't going to be part of a group that was low enough to resort to kidnapping high school students.
The "black emotions" returned, this time aimed at himself for being so useless at such a crucial time. After the fighting has ended and the victims were rescued, Mikado sees Non and Chikage limping away on the sidewalk. Mikado runs up to them and apologizes as the leader of the Dollars.
Chikage appreciates the gesture, but can't believe that someone as ordinary as Mikado could possibly be the leader. Although it wasn't meant as an insult, for someone like Mikado who strives to live an unordinary life, it was the last push he needed to go over the edge. Mikado crumples down and cries at all that's happened.Nov 01, · 'The Mikado' spurs offense - and defense "The Mikado," a Gilbert and Sullivan comic opera, has become controversial lately because of its Asian stereotypes.
