Kenji works for Enman Loans, which is a local front for a Yazuka. After Naoko rejects his offer to go to go out with him, he uses violence Kosukegawa to force him break up with Naoko (mistaking Kosukegawa and Naoko to be dating). But then two are then are face to face with a very hungry bear. Kenji and Kosukegawa race to safety into a shed and Kosukegawa remarks that Kenji is a good person for defending him. They are saved by a man who K.Os the bear in one hit (later to be found out to be Tatsuya.)
Kenji is ordered by the Yazuka to kill Tatsuya or else he will die for disobeying orders. He also does this, so that he can quit the Yazuka and be a normal couple with Naoko. It doesn't turn out to be as easy he thought, because Tatsuya dodges all his bullets. Before things Tatsuya fights back Kosukegawa goes between Kenji and Tatsuya saying, There's reason for a man to kill another man. Kenji then stutters about how its to late late for him and he can't run now. Naoko is upset by his attitude and punches him hard enough to knock him out, while crying and calling him stupid.
