The chapter begins with Tonkotsu being pursued by the Phantom Killer, having just gotten off the phone with Hiroto Sakurai and informing him of the situation, pretending to talk to her mother so as not to alert the killer. She begins shaking as she is pursued further into the park until she stops by children's jungle gym and turns to face the killer. She is visibly scared while doing so, and while temporarily confused when he simply walks past her, he suddenly thrusts a knife next to her face and tells her to stop moving. The killer begins taunting her and tells her of all the ways he could kill her, causing tears to begin streaming down her face, until Hiroto arrives at the park and asks him what he is doing, stating that she is his girlfriend. The killer suddenly lunges forward and attempts to stab Hiroto in the gut, causing Tonkotsu to cover her mouth in shock, however, Hiroto is able to block the knife using his Gantz suit before the two of them pursue the killer until he stops underneath a bridge.

Hiroto asks him about the murders he has committed, prompting the killer to ask if he is like him, before Hiroto specifically demands to know whether he dreams about his victims. When the killer states that he only has "wet dreams" about his victims, Hiroto paralyses him by destroying nerve cells in his spinal cord using his powers, causing the killer to scream out in pain. The chapter ends with Hiroto looking away from the screaming man as Tonkotsu calls the police on his phone.
