Chapter 5 - Firework Lyrics[]

On Juzo's signal, Kenji led the Special Troops to apprehend anyone related to the Serial Killer Gambling. During the chaos, he killed the Republic of Lamieca's Secretary of Defence by hanging him from the top of the Arena's roof. He then pursued Takumi and ordered him to surrendered himself. After Takumi deduced that Kenji was the killer of the Secretary of Defence, Kenji begin to laugh maniacally, recalling the scared expression of Juzo. His main motive was to develop an international accident using the murder so Juzo can be fired. Takumi mocked his motive and made Kenji angry. He was eager to kill Takumi after he rated his crime with a mere 0 points. When Kenji was about to strangle him with his tie, Takumi easily used his tie back and pushed him while with his tie wrapped around his neck, killing him instantly.
