Long Summary Edit
Shinoa Squad runs through Nagoya City Hall while using Shikama Dōji's ability to navigate and check for vampires. She senses the vampires above them and counts down. The squad activates their demons
In Shinjuku, Kureto has Angels prepared for transport in large crates. Angels numbers 6 and 7 are mentioned specifically. Seishirō arrives and states their father commanded him to make sure Kureto did not screw up. The two argue, and Kureto intimidates Seishirō. When Seishirō calls for backup from his soldiers, he sees that Kureto's aide (Aoi) and another soldier already took them down. Kureto's aide (Aoi) informs him that preparations are complete.
When Seishirō hears that Kureto is getting on a helicopter, he asks where Kureto is going and says the vampires are headed to Shinjuku to attack them. Kureto states he will imprison the vampires in Nagoya. Seishirō says he will report Kureto for defying their father, so Kureto draws his sword. Seishirō panics and begs for his life. Kureto says that Seishirō 's obedience to those in power is useful, so he tells Seishirō to wait in the brig until he returns with "supreme power." Kureto does not explain his plans to Seishirō.
Kureto's aide (Aoi) informs him that the subject is in unstable condition with severe pain. He orders the drug dosage to be increased to force it back into submission. When she informs him that action may kill the subject, Kureto simply says humanity will die if it does not hold out anyway.
He asks if they have a status report from Guren and she tells him that there's just one: "Everything's fine." He laughs and orders his soldiers to hurry.
Meanwhile, Crowley easily parries each of Guren and Shinya's attacks while only using one hand to hold his sword. Shinya and Guren struggle but manage to escape through a hole in the wall after they knock up enough dust.
Crowley's hand reaches through the wall and grabs Shinya by the chest, crushing him, but Guren swings at the hand and drives it back. Guren puts Shinya's arm over his shoulder as they run down the hall. Crowley breaks through the wall and states that he hates running. He attacks them and cuts through Guren's left shoulder before remembering that he does not want to kill these two. Guren orders Shinya to abandon him and continue the mission. Crowley allows it.
Before Shinya can flee, the ground beneath Guren and Crowley breaks apart. Yūichirō jumps through the floor.
