Given how both of them had passed away, every Toman member was left confused about Mikey's mind. Taiju immediately knocked him down using his strongest punch.
While Mitsuya was left in a rage and started charging at Taiju, Mikey got up, waiting for the sound of the church bells as he did not want to fight on Christmas. As Mikey was preparing to fight Taiju, Inui stepped forward, warning him about the repercussions as he believed that the Black Dragon leader was stronger than him.
The episode then revealed Inui and Kokonoi's past. The former was meant to be the Black Dragon's leader as he hoped to revive the gang. To help the cause, Koko introduced Inui to Taiju. Although Inui believed that beating Taiju would prove his strength, Taiju beat him up. Just moments later, the former named Taiju as the Black Dragon leader, soon after which Koko was recruited as well.
Back in the present, after Inui's backstory ended, Mikey knocked out Taiju with his flying dynamite kick. This shocked everyone as Mikey expressed his love for his friends. Just then, Taiju got up and asked Koko to send his 100 Black Dragon soldiers to fight the Toman members.
However, when Koko opened the door, he witnessed his gang members already beaten down by Draken. The situation shocked Taiju as only two individuals alone were capable of defeating his Black Dragons. As Takemichi and the others prepared to fight Black Dragon, Draken walked in as they realized that the gang had been defeated.
Takemichi and Chifuyu were ecstatic as they were successful in their mission. Soon after, Takemichi was knocked out as Mikey gave him a ride to the garden in front of Hinata's home.
