Byakuya-Sama is God
Volume 1 starts of with a short message describing that the following is written by the K2K system version 2.3. The job of that note taking system is to merely make some corrections, but it wishes the best to the spirit of the original, if there is such a thing. Chapter 1 begins from the perspective of Shinobu Togami (or Blue Ink), Byakuya's sister and secretary in charge of writing his biography, Journey Under the Midnight Sun. She has a robotic eye called Borges, which she uses to look things up over the course of the novel. She's in an alleyway with Byakuya, who is laying in front of her unconscious and completely naked besides his glasses. When he wakes up, she hands him a towel and explains the situation. Along with his clothes, his identity was stolen by an unknown impostor. This impostor mimicked his voice perfectly and made a World Domination Proclamation.
The audio recording was broadcasted everywhere, and stated that either he, Byakuya Togami, was to be killed within 24 hours, or the "pitiful cattle" hidden somewhere was to be found. If one of these occurred, the individual responsible would be granted the right to "be Byakuya Togami". If not, he would take over the world. Shinobu and Byakuya suggest that the pitiful cattle could be referring to that, right before Princess Sonia rolls in on an armored car with multiple soldiers.
Sonia says something about Byakuya being straight out of an erotica manga, and also tells him that one of the Togami Conglomerate's satellites crashed. Shinobu attempts to tell her what's happening, but Sonia brushes her off and orders the soldiers to kill them. However, from behind, a black Mercedes-Benz speeds into the alleyway. A red haired girl jumps out and attacks the soldiers with an electric guitar as Byakuya and Shinobu get into the back seats.
The driver offers them Pilsner Urquell (a type of beer), and introduces himself as Hiroyuki and the girl riding shotgun as Yuika. The two of them are twins from the Ketouin Conglomerate, an underworld conglomerate. Hiroyuki tells them that they already know the proclamation was made by an impostor, he just wants to know the secret to the Togami Family's Prosperity. This prompts Byakuya to open the bottle of Pilsner Urquell and pour it onto Hiroyuki's head.
The Mercedes swerves widely several times until it's abruptly stopped by a large figure, also known as Sakura Ogami. Byakuya rolls down his window and asks her why she's in Prague. She apparently used a technique called shukuchi to get there, and wants to capture Byakuya, per the proclamation's request. Byakuya says something about Sakura being in his way ever since she was born with a last name too similar to his, and gets Hiroyuki to turn on the car's jet engine. It blasts off, leaving Sakura in a cloud of dust.
They drive away until they find themselves in the middle of a protest, citizens chanting "we will not give in!" and wielding hastily-constructed flags with the words "World Domination" X-ed out. In the crowd, Shinobu spots one of her classmates, Kazuichi Soda. Hiroyuki offers Byakuya a satellite phone, which reminds Shinobu that internet and phone service have been cut out, possibly due to the satellite that fell earlier. He also gives Byakuya a tuxedo to wear.
On the side of the road, they spot a girl running after them carrying an electric guitar on her shoulders. Hiroyuki pulls over, rolls down a window, and she attempts to climb in - only to be stopped by her large chest. She announces that her name is Taeko Kanai and that she's a cattle slayer. Unfortunately, by sticking half way out of the car and flailing around, she begins to attract the attention of the citizens, who immediately spot and make a move for Byakuya. Hiroyuki floors it, causing Taeko to slip out of the window and be assaulted by the crowd.
The car is unable to gain much speed to get away from the protesters, but they manage to get a bit of distance as they drive through a town. In the sky, Shinobu spots a flying baby. It's jet black, with a gap running down where the eyes and mouth are supposed to be. She uses Borges and is able to determine it's from the Žižkov TV Tower, and that Soda most likely used his talent to make it fly. The baby turns in the sky, suddenly diving for he Mercedes and splitting its face to reveal a machine gun. Hiroyuki turns the car as it shoots for them, racing towards a busy shopping district. The baby continues shooting and ends up killing most of the civilians. Byakuya asks about the jet engine, and Hiroyuki tells him it can only be used once. In front of them, Sonia shows up in her armored car again and starts killing people, no matter who they are.
Byakuya gives Hiroyuki directions until they eventually get away from the baby and Sonia. He turns to Shinobu, missing his glasses. She gets him a new pair as he explains they had a transmitter on them, and he hadn't removed them earlier as they guaranteed the enemy being in front of him, giving him the possibility of defeating or extracting information from them. Shinobu briefly considers the fact that if he had just thrown away the glasses in the first place, the townspeople would still be alive, but then reflects on the fact that she and Byakuya had both lived through the Worst Incident in Togami Family History. A mountain of corpses was just part of survival.
Hiroyuki finally brings them to Škoda Auto factory, his hideout. Byakuya changes into the tuxedo and orders Shinobu to call his classmates using the satellite phone while Hiroyuki showers and Yuika sleeps. She gets a decent way through the list with no response - feeling like "a mother who had only found out that her child was unpopular when she attended Bring Your Parents to School Day" - until he just tells her to call Hope's Peak. She does, and someone finally picks up, Junko Enoshima.
They go back and forth, getting further and further off-topic until Toko Fukawa gets the phone. She asks where Byakuya is, and Shinobu looks up to see he has moved all the way to the opposite corner of the room. Toko makes a comment about his tuxedo and rehearsing for their wedding ceremony, as well as being at the perfect spot in her cycle to conceive when he cuts her off and orders her to explain her current situation. She tells him that riots broke out immediately after the World Domination Proclamation, so she and Junko sought shelter at Hope's Peak. She says that she doesn't know who started the riots, but she heard the people talking about "locked rooms".
Junko gets the phone back, and Byakuya asks where Mukuro Ikusaba is. According to Junko, she hasn't seen her, but Mukuro left a note reading "I wish to defend this planet". Byakuya tells Junko to wait inside/investigate the school, and to tell the teachers he is innocent. He ends the call by telling Junko he will simply claim victory over his impostor, return to Japan, and attend classes as normal. Shinobu agrees that he will win, and win, and keep on winning, because Byakuya is a god.
