17 years old
At the begining of the series Takashi is shown to be a laid back student who does not mind skipping classes. Takashi is also shown to be hesitant, and is proven by the fact that he never confessed his feelings for Rei until it was too late. As the story progresses Takashi becomes more serious and has even shown to have the qualities of a leader. Takashi is shown to be kind to others and has also been shown not to hesitate to save people who are in serious trouble such as Alice Maresato when she is attacked by "them". Although Takashi has mostly been shown to be kind, it is hinted that after "they" started showing up that he has shown a sadistic impulse in attacking "them" and enjoys being in control, a characteristic he shares with Saeko; however he became this way after the events of the story where as she was this way from before. He often acts brash and will go out to risk his life to save or protect someone on a whim. Similar to Saeko, Takashi confessed that he's found an exhilaration in killing "them". Saya has mentioned that he and Kohta Hirano are most likely to snap if things continue. At certain points in the story Takashi has also shown a slight perverted side, most of which having to do with Shizuka Marikawa. Though initially depicted as a poor student who often skips class, he's proven to be a very reliable person that all the characters can count on.
Takashi was just lazying around in Fujimi Highschool when he noticed someone suspicious banging on the school gate, P.E. teachers then checked what's happening and then got bitten by "them". Takashi shocked on what had happened went to Rei's room to get them both out of the school. When Rei hesitated he gave her a slap in the face in which Hisashi questioned what's happening. Takashi explained to the two what had happened. They prepared weapons. Takashi lended his mobile phone to Rei who was going to call her father for help. A man spoke through the school's audio system that every student must evacuate immeaditely because of the incident at the school gate, before the man could finish his speaking he was killed by one of "them". Every student run for their lives resulting in a lot of accidents. When Takashi asked if they're going to run too Hisashi said that they'll just be part of the rampage of the students. They ran for the rooftop in which they saw BlackHawks fly above them. They ran toward the school observatory and little by little Hisashi was turning into one of "them". Hisashi said that Takashi needs to kill him and Rei tries to stop Takashi from doing so but at the end Hisashi was killed by Takashi. When Rei stated that Takashi killed Hisashi because he is jealous of their relationship and that she wanted to be like "them" rather to survive. Takashi said he will face "them" trying to live Rei but Rei stopped Takashi from attempting to kill "them" and Takashi hugs her stating that on the day the world ended he killed his bestfriend and hugged the girl he always liked. At the beginning of the semester, Takashi Komuro has a bad relationship with his childhood friend Rei. When he goes outside to mope, he is confronted by Saya, another one of his childhood friends. Unable to sway Takashi's mood, Saya leaves. Later, Takashi witnesses an attack at the front of the school involving a few teachers and a zombie trying to enter the school through the front gate. Rushing back, Takashi returns to his class and forcefully removes Rei from the room with the help of his friend Hisashi. The three quickly leave and make their way towards the school's front gate grabbing weapons while they moved through the school's corridors. Using Takashi's cell phone, Rei attempts to call the police, but after listening to an overload message, the school's intercom sounds off a warning of attacks happening within the school. The school turns into complete mayhem after the teacher on the intercom is attacked and begs for his life for the whole school to hear. Other students begin frantically trying to escape from the school. While this is happening, Takashi and Hisashi decide to change their way of escape and head towards the schools administration building. Greeted by a teacher outside who appears to have been bitten, Takashi, Rei and Hisashi begin to fight for their lives.
This fight leads to Hisashi being bitten; Takashi crushes the teacher’s skull with his bat forcing the teacher to the ground, releasing Hisashi from his jaws. Hearing more of "them" down below, the injured Hisashi recommends they go to the roof to be rescued, however when they arrive they are met by the sight of the surrounding city which is burning and embroiled in chaos. A pack of Black-Hawk helicopters belonging to the S.D.F (Special Defence Force) fly overhead; ignoring Rei’s attempts to get them to rescue the group as they fly off towards their objective. Moving to the observatory the group create a blockade and begin to wait for their rescue, after a while, Hisashi begins to cough out blood and begins to change into one of "them" and requests Takashi to help him commit suicide before he changed so he could at least die as a human. However as Rei pleads for Hisashi to remain human and for Takashi to not carry out his wish he changes into one of "them" and attempts to bite Rei forcing Takashi to take action, slamming his bat down into Hisashi’s head, killing his best friend and Rei’s boyfriend with one strike. In shock, Rei accuses Takashi of hating Hisashi for being Rei’s boyfriend which Takashi himself does not deny. Guilty with killing his best friend, Takashi begins to move towards the blockade to go and face "them". Quickly he is stopped by a crying Rei who begs him to stay with her and he responds by pulling her into his arms and giving her a hug.
After this, Rei and Takashi fight "them" back and eventually meet up with Kohta, Saya, Shizuka, and Saeko. They attempt to formulate an escape plan in the teacher's room where everyone keeps their keys, including the bus keys. Takashi later tests out Saya's theory that "they" only respond to sound, which ends up being correct as he was able to stand in a hallway full of "them". The group flees the building and one of their followers that they met up on the way when he is caught by "them" because he hit the staircase railing with a metal bar. Takashi and the group flee to the bus. As Takashi sees Koichi Shido and his students approaching them, he orders Shizuka to wait for them. Eventually the act of allowing Mr. Shido onto the bus would turn out to be bad when Rei flees and Takashi follows. (Rei ran away because Mr. Shido was the teacher that held her back a grade and can't forgive him for that.) However, Saya, Kohta, Miss Shizuka, and Saeko remained on the bus with Mr. Shido.
Rei and Takashi escape the bus, only to be encountered by "them" in a bus coming right toward them. The approaching bus topples and sets "them" aflame, seperating Takashi and Rei from returning to their bus. Before the bus with "them" exploded, Takashi told Saeko to rendezvous at a police station at 7pm. that day or the next. When it eventually came to this situation, both parties could not cross the bridge to get to the police station and eventually ended up meeting each other. Takashi and the gang would soon go to Miss Shizuka's friend's (Rika Minami) house. They take refuge at Rika's house and refresh up a bit.
In the house, Takashi locates a stockpile of weapons and ammunition with Kohta. After watching a television broadcast that was taking place on a nearby bridge, Takashi is hugged by a drunk Shizuka from the back. Shizuka attempts to grab Takashi's penis, but is stopped when Takashi pushes her away by grabbing her breasts. Later, after Kohta gets kissed and Shizuka falls asleep on Takashi, Takashi attempts to take her downstairs to let her lie down. On his way to the stairs, Shizuka almost falls up and Takashi grabs her butt, trying to hold her up. Shizuka later flirts with Takashi, saying he is a "naughty boy" and falls asleep. Takashi mumbles how he would be very happy if he touched them for those purposes. As he is mumbling, Rei comes up the stairs and confronts him and gets angry at his statement, but suddenly says "wow there are 3 Takashis!" and falls down. After remembering what happened in the first few days, Rei breaks down in tears. Takashi leaves her and drops Shizuka off onto the floor and covers her up with a blanket. Later, Takashi goes to the fridge looking for a drink and hear's Saeko talking to him. Takashi looks up and sees Saeko almost nude in an apron with a thong. After an embarassing conversation, Rei calls for Takashi to come up to talk with her. After he goes up, Rei makes comparisons with him and Hisashi. Takashi snaps in the middle of the conversation and tells her that he is not Hisashi and he killed him with his own hands and tells her to get back to reality. Rei, on the verge of crying, leans into kiss Takashi. Later Takashi pushes Rei back because they were getting to close and nearly kissed. Takashi said he was going to get an erection in the anime, while in the manga she pointed out that he was already getting one when they were getting too close. Soon after, a dog outside was barking and "they" started to hoard around a young man shooting a shotgun who eventually died. After that, a man and his daughter, Alice, would try to see refuge in a house with lights on. Upon the opening of the door, a resident of the house stabbed Alice's father. Takashi goes to save the little girl and the dog, Zeke . Alice is now part of the group, but has no weapon as she is only seven years old.
After rescuing Alice, the gang travels to the other side of the river in the Humvee. On the journey, Rei wakes up to find Takashi sleeping. Thinking it was really cute, Rei noticies Saeko drooling on Takashi's crotch. Rei pinches Takashi on the face to wake him up and tells Saeko that she is drooling, much to her dismay. Once they reach the other side, the girls get dressed. Later Rei and Takashi ride on the back of the Humvee on their way to Takagi's house, only to find the road to be infested with "them". Later the car occurs in a minor accident and Rei falls off the Humvee's back, leading to Takashi saving her and trying to protect her from zombies as other gang members try to protect them as well.
After what is seemingly the end for the gang, Takashi and Saeko decides to charge through the zombies, and to lure them away as Saya's mom had just arrived to save the gang and was securing them to safety. After being disconnected from the group, Saeko and Takashi retrace their steps to a motorcycle store that they passed on their way to the accident. In the store, they took a 6 wheeled amphibious ATV and headed to a small sandbar within the river they had crossed that morning. Once they entered the water, Saeko is splashed with water and her outfit became totally see-through, leading Takashi to be really embarrassed and shocked. At the sandbar, Takashi offers Saeko an additional shirt after hearing her sneeze. Before they leave the sandbar to journey to Saya's house, Takashi asks that if Saeko has any guy that she likes, and she responds with that she used to. On the way to Saya's house, they encounter a horde of zombies and are forced to ditch the ATV in a fountain with its engine on to attract the zombies. While cutting their way out, Saeko freezes just before killing some zombie kids. This forces Takashi to rescue her by blowing a kid's head off. Later, Takashi takes her hand and runs to a nearby shrine.
In the shrine, Takashi presents Saeko with a portable potty and they strength their relationship bonds. Also, Takashi learns about Saeko's sadistic side, and apparently felt bad for her. Apparently this lead to a steamy off-canon kiss. The next day, as they leave the shrine, they are confronted by several zombies, and again Saeko hesitates to retaliate. Takashi then goes up behind Saeko and gropes her left breast and tells her that he'll admire her until the day he dies and he thinks she is the coolest girl ever and that if shes needs a reason to fight, then the reason would be for both of their survival. After Saeko hears Takashi's statements, she returns to her old self and annihilates the group of zombies, leading to Takashi's admiration. On the way to Saya's house, Saeko grabs Takashi 's hand with an intimate expression and asks if he'll "take responsibility", which Takashi responds with a "as you wish!". Later in the episode, it is seen that Takashi and Saeko are arm in arm in an intimate embrace at the gate of Saya's house, leading to Saya being jealous.
At Saya's house, he is first shown to be helping Shizuka apply ointment on Rei by holding her down. After being called a traitor and kicked out by Rei, Takashi goes downstairs. There, he meets Saeko and compliments Saeko on her new outift, which creates a sort of intimate moment between the two and they finally break out in laughter. As he walks up a staircase, he sees Saya in rage and is lashed out by her. Later, he talks with Saya's mom to know what happens and which she begs him to convince that her daughter should not be so mad and there are other things to take care of. After this, Saya holds a conference with all the members of the group in Rei's room. During the conference, Takashi gets mad and raises Saya off the ground by holding her collar. As she is raised off the ground, Takashi tries to talk some sense in Saya after she repeatedly disses her parents and say that they've abandoned her.
After the conference, Takashi and Saeko gets in an argument with Kohta about guns versus swords. Naturally, Takashi takes Saeko's side and tries to calm down Kohta, only to be responded with a sharp "Don't touch me!". After that, he meets up with Alice and says that he should probably apologize, but Alice runs off to Kohta first. Later she came back to Takashi to tell him that Kohta is in trouble. Going to see what is wrong, Takashi finds Kohta being crowded by Takagi house members after Kohta refuses to hand them his guns. Takashi comes to the rescue saying that Kohta has been the one saving Saya up to now. Later he is joined by the rest of the gang to stick up for Kohta.
The next time Takashi is seen, he is with Kohta and Saya, trying to argue with a group of people that they need to face reality and must fight back with violence to deal with the infection. Unfortunately, they are branded as mere "kids" and are falsely called murderers as well as being accused of suppressing the people by using violence. This causes Saya, Kohta, and Takashi to give up hopes on those people. At the front door of Saya's house, Takashi makes a few meaningful statements causing Saya and Kohta to giggle and concur that Takashi is the true leader within the group. After going inside the mansion, Takashi goes to his room and reflects on what Kohta and Saya meant. Soon, he is interrupted by Rei who comes into his room and tries to snuggle up with him. During their cuddling, Takashi allows Rei to sit on his lap and talk to him about how she likes cute guys, but fell for Takashi because of his recklessness. Also, she tells Takashi that she can't go on living if Takashi ever liked another girl. Shortly after, Takashi lies Rei on the bed, leaning in for what seems to be an off-canon kiss. The scene stops when Rei cries out a little "ouch" and Takashi apologizes for forgetting Rei still has back pains. After Rei leaves to go consult Shizuka, Saeko apparently has a conversation with Takashi (off-canon).
When the scene at the room finishes, the next time Takashi is seen is when he is having a discussion with Souichiro. They discuss that after 2 days, Souichiro and his people will leave the city area in search of a safer location. Within those two days, Takashi says that he'll go look for his and Rei's parents. After that, Takashi is next seen with Rei downstairs, preparing to leave the mansion in search for their parents. They are joined by the rest of the group and Saeko appears suddenly and tells Takashi that she'll accompany him, much to Rei's annoyance. Rei's jealousy only increases when Takashi comments on how amazing Saeko looks in her outfit. After Rei is seen bolting away, Takashi goes in pursuit of her. When he catches up, he finds Rei confronting Shido and is about to stop her, but is held onto by Saeko, who says that Takashi should let Rei decide what to do.
After Shido leaves, Takashi is seen with the group looking at an overjoyed Shizuka, who seems to have remembered her friend Rika's cell phone number. At the request of Shizuka, Takashi lends her his phone, but midway through the conversation, the overhead EMP blast breaks the cell phone and Takashi is left awestruck by the blinding light. Later, Takashi receives an explanation from Saya about what the EMP does. After Saya finishes her explanation, Souichiro joins the group and talks to Saya. During their conversation, one of the concrete block movers arrives at the estate's gates but is held back and killed by a couple of "them". Takashi stands in shock as he wonders how "they" have gotten in to what seemed to be an impossible to breach blockade. After Souichiro orders the estate's gates to be closed to prevent more of them slipping in, Takashi prepares to fight along with the rest of the group. Shortly after they manage to close the gates, a horde of "them" crowd into the gates and manage to break it down with sheer force.
After "they" break into the estate, the group goes and tries to eradicate "them". As one of the rescued survivors was about to be bitten, Takashi comes to the rescue and kills all of "them" that are coming near. After what seems to be a slowed advance of "them", Takashi gathers along with group and some survivors, including Souichiro and Yuriko, at the house. During Souichiro's speech about how the men should go out and fight while the women and children stay behind, he tells Takashi and the rest of his group to go searching for their parents.
Moved by Souichiro's speech, Takashi and the group go to where the Humvee is stored to see if it works. Luckily, Maddo, the Takagi family's mechanic, is there to perform checks and make sure it can run. During the time that Maddo is checking up on the car, the group holds off a wave of "them". While the group is fighting, Rei's gun is grabbed by one of "them", and she is rendered immobile and seemingly doomed, but Takashi comes to the rescue by shooting "them".
After the car is ready, Takashi leaves with the group in the Humvee. As they are driving out, they pass Souichiro and Yuriko, who comment that they have no regrets and don't need to hold back now. Just before they reach the broken blockade, Takashi and the group notices how narrow the gap is, and as they are about to hit it, Shizuka makes the car go on two wheels to make sure the Humvee can get by. Since Saeko was riding on top of the Humvee, Takashi pulls her in at the last second to prevent Saeko being crushed between the Humvee and the bus that was blocking the entrance. After they get past the blockade, the group continues to drive along the road and they spot an entrance to the highway. Once they reach the highway, they notice the abundance of "them" on it. Then, Takashi, Saeko, and Kohta climb onto the top of the Humvee and Takashi states that "it is getting annoying".
After what appears to be the end for the gang, a group of firefighters blasts away the group of "them" that is approaching. The gang climbs through the barbed wire fence to be greeted by Saya's mother. Soon after, Takashi and the gang flee to Saya's house and take refuge there for the time being. Takashi calls Saya's resort a "Tahiti paradise" which means if the gang gets too comfortable with their new life in the mansion, they will not want to go back to fighting later on, so they should just enjoy what they have currently.
After settling in, Rei has to get ointment rubbed on her back because she fell off the humvee. Takashi helps hold down Rei while Shizuka rubs the ointment upon her back. Rei tells Takashi to leave the room because her boobs hurt due to him firing the gun on them. As he exits Rei's room, Takashi meets up with Saeko, and amazed at how beautiful Saeko looks in her yukata, Takashi gives her a compliment, leading to an awkward but funny moment between the two. After the intimate moment, Takashi hears Saya yelling on the second floor. Takashi rushes to go talk to Saya, who eventually gets mad at him because he still does not call her by her first name. Saya holds a conference with all the members of the group in Rei's room. During the conference, Takashi gets mad and raises Saya off the ground by holding her collar. As she is raised off the ground, Takashi tries to talk some sense into Saya after she repeatedly insults her parents and says that they've abandoned her. After the conference, Takashi and Saeko get in an argument with Kohta about guns versus swords. Naturally, Takashi takes Saeko's side and tries to calm down Kohta, only to be responded with a sharp "Don't touch me!" and "You can't even hold a gun properly!"
After that, he meets up with Alice and says that he should probably apologize, but Alice runs off to Kohta first. Later she comes back to Takashi to tell him that Kohta is in trouble. Going to see what is wrong, Takashi finds Kohta being crowded by some of the Takagi house members after Kohta refuses to hand them his guns. Takashi comes to the rescue saying that Kohta has been the one saving Saya up to now. Later he is joined by the rest of the gang to stick up for Kohta. Eventually the gang convinces the men to let Kohta keep the guns. After this, Saya's father gives Saeko a new sword, a Kissaki Moroha Kogarasu Zuruki. Rei gets rubbed with ointment again and yells out that her back still hurts, but soon after she is shown standing. Later, Rei walks in on Takashi practicing his gun in his room and talks to Takashi about how the situation is different now and how if Takashi fell in love with another girl she could not go on, possibly showing her love for him with this remark. Rei tries to embrace Takashi but then starts to feel pain again so she goes to see Shizuka and as she leaves she tells him to think about what she said.
A scene is shown where Mr. Shido's bus is being pulled into the vista because they need assistance. One of Saya's workers brings out a prototype military ATV that does not require electricity to run, only gasoline. Takashi takes the ATV for a joy ride around the vista, displaying that he can handle it well. Shizuka asks Takashi if she can borrow his cellphone for a minute to call her friend Rika Minami. Rei is then shown dashing toward the bus that Shido was standing outside of. She holds her gun up to Shido's neck, nearly cutting him with the bayonet. She then walks away and says he is not worth killing. Shido and his cult are told to leave on the bus they came in and do so respectively.
Shizuka asks Takashi for his phone again and she then informs Rika that they were at her house already and borrowed some weapons. Moments later, a nuclear warhead detonates overhead, causing a massive EMP blast that nullifies all electronics. This leads Shido and his cult on the bus to crash into a forklift, leaving stranded in the middle of "them". The status of all of the people on the bus and Shido is currently unknown. Shizuka hands Takashi back his cellphone thinking that she may have broken it.
Soon after, "they" start to attack on the vista, Souichiro Takagi, Saya's father, orders that they close the gates to the vista at once, but "they" are in too great of a number and burst through the gate. Kohta is soon shown using his gun skill against "them" and the adults are amazed. Souichiro and his men are shown throwing dynamite at "them", which could attract more of Them. Saya's parents are last shown fending for themselves while the gang flees from the crowd of "them". Takashi and the gang flee on the ATV and Saya's parents are glad that they have left and regret nothing. The status of Saya's parents is currently unknown.
The gang then tries to flee on the highway, only to be surrounded by "them". Takashi and Saeko devise a plan to meet up within a day while they distract Them. Afterward, Saeko and Takashi drive off to the riverbank to get some rest. Later, Takashi decides to use the ATV's amphibious feature. In the resulting splash when they landed in the water, both Saeko and Takashi get wet. When Takashi turns around to check if Saeko is alright, he is mesmerized by her wet clothing. Saeko and Takashi are soon found on a sandbar in the middle of the river to distract "them," because "they" cannot cross the river. After Saeko changes shirts, Takashi drives the ATV to a nearby park where there is a fountain in the middle. The ATV then continues to go around in a circle in the fountain attracting "them" to it. When it comes to fighting though, Saeko is shown that she does not have the will at the moment to kill two children that have been turned into "them". Takashi rushes over and shoots the children in the head, saving Saeko. Saeko and Takashi flee to a nearby shrine for the time being.
In the shrine at night, Saeko explains to Takashi her sadistic side about how she nearly killed a man in "self-defense". When morning comes, Saeko and Takashi are surrounded by "them" when they step outside of the shrine. In order to make Saeko not hesitate in combat again, he goes behind her and gropes her left breast saying that he will always think Saeko is the greatest girl ever and he'll accept her faults and sadistic nature. After that, Saeko snaps into action and dominates "them" around her. The quote "I'm getting wet" then follows, possibly due to the fact that she is cutting up so many people or she is enjoying the sensation of cutting up "them". After the fighting, Saeko asks Takashi if he will "Take responsibility".
Takashi and Saeko then meet with the gang at the location they planned to meet at, the Taiei Shoppingtown. The gang soon finds themselves going through the shopping mall looking for food that is good to eat and has not spoiled since the power went out. The mall is inhabited by the gang, as well as a female officer, an elderly couple, a teenager, three mid aged men and a woman; while "they" remain outside the mall. When Kohta picked up a package of meat, a man yells at him saying they have already planned to smoke all of the meat so it all lasts longer. A police woman named Asami Nakaoka comes rushing from the distance to yell at the man. She explains to the man that the gang has only been here for one day and does not understand the rules yet. Asami tells the gang that soon they will be saved, for officer Matsushima has already left for help. For precaution, the gang has hidden their guns away from the other members of the mall who are not one of "them" because they do not want to risk the guns being stolen.
As Asami is a police officer, a lot is expected out of her from the gang that had already been inside of the mall. Because of this, Kohta fears a riot between the officer and the mall gang so he "gives back" the Smith and Wesson that she dropped. (He actually just gave away the Smith and Wesson that Takashi used, but figured that with a gun she could get more respect.) Right away, Asami knew what type of gun it was which amazed him; an attraction toward her grew because of this. Moments later, Miss Marikawa screams because she is about to be raped by one of the men from the mall gang. Asami comes to rush over along with the gang and she points her gun at the man trying to rape Miss Marikawa. Asami tells the man to drop his weapon that he is holding, but then he does not believe she will shoot him. He taunts Asami, but then Kohta rushes quickly to get some wires to suffocate the man; he only does it for so long to make him pass out.
Everything calms down and both gangs go back to their former respective areas within the mall. The gang meets near a "Starlarks Coffee" shop to discuss whether or not they are going to leave or stay in the mall for the time being. Rei argues that they cannot stay there due to the fact that there is someone trying to rape people, but they are all exhausted. Rei then responds to Takashi by saying "lets see you get raped by a bodybuilder like Hard Gay, then you'll feels whats it like". The gang then talks about transportation, the most obvious feature is a car, but Saya reminds them that the EMP blast from the nuclear warhead nullifies all electric parts in cars. They then resort to other alternatives such as pure diesel cars, but that idea is shot down as well, due to the rare chance of finding one. Rei then serve up cups of coffee to the gang, remarking how she was once a part-time worker at a maid cafe.
The group disperses with their own duties and Kohta goes onto the roof to map out the best possible route to attack "them". Asami followed Kohta to the roof and was amazed at his skills with using a map because he is in high school. They then throw back compliments to each other, building their relationship a bit further. Asami then embraces Kohta thanking him for when he helped her back inside the mall with the other group. Asami tells Kohta about her boyfriend and how he dumped her after she promised him she would become a great police officer. So after she got dumped, that broke her spirit to want to become a great officer. During their conversation, a man rushed up to the roof to tell Asami that the elderly woman was not doing so well and that Shizuka says the woman needs a blood transfusion.
Takashi, Kohta, Asami and a man from the mall gang decide to go get the blood from a nearby hostpital. Within the hospital they are ambushed by "them" and Takashi quickly goes to get the blood pack. The gang that went to the bank is soon in a room hiding from "them" outside the door. Quick enough, the gang decides to shoot a hole in the ceiling and climb up it on a box. They all climb up except for one and it appears they were too slow. The man from the mall gang is caught by one of "them" and bit on the leg. Asami asks the man his name, because he and they all know he is done for. The man responds with Hiro Tamaru and Asami points her gun to his head. She then shoots Tamaru in the head before he becomes one of "them" telling him goodbye.
Takashi decides that this was their first actual defeat. They had lost a fine youthful man for the sake of an elderly woman who can barely walk. Kohta, Asami, and Komoru then argue over this situation. Saya then warns the others of the main group that if things continue like so, Kohta and Komoru will possibly lose it and snap. Later, Takashi is seen sitting really closely with Saeko. In an attempt to get back at Saeko, Rei then hands Takashi a drink to calm him down a bit, thinking it is a refreshment. Takashi realizes that it is a bottle of sexual stimulant and Rei goes off in embarrassment. Kohta and Asami discuss their situation and she asks him if he would stay. He then replies that he already has companions and Asami breaks out in tears but then tells him it is okay because she had a feeling he would say that.
Zeke barks, which triggers the gang to stand up and look outside the window where Zeke is barking. Zeke barks at the undead, walking corpse of officer Matsushima. Asami then draws the conclusion that Matsushima never even made it out of the mall's area and that nobody is going to come save them. Asami flees to from the current location to get away, while Kohta tries to call her she calls him a four-eyed pig. Soon after discovering nobody is going to come save them, Asami starts to panic and then tells the rest of the people in the mall. One of the members in the mall gang starts to draw conclusions that Takashi's gang does not care for their well being. Soon after, one of the members in the mall gang snaps and says they will all die because he states that he knows how zombie movies end, and they will not survive. The elderly couple say they are going to take a breath of fresh air on the roof. Rei soon finds out where Takashi and Kohta hid the guns, in a "titanic breast" size bra box. Takashi and Kohta decide that they will need more ammunition soon, so one of their next destinations should be an ammunition shop.
The gang then confirms their plans for the future. However, their depart may be sooner than they intended when the boy who says he knows a lot about zombie movies snaps again and opens the door so the zombies can be let in. The gang's first plan is to see if Takashi and Rei's parents are okay, if that fails then they will search other areas where they could be, then possibly give up. Kohta then decides that the gang will now have to move around in a special operations formation to avoid as many of "them" as possible. Soon after the meeting, Kohta decides to add a bike clamp and attaches it to Takashi's gun to use like a skewer. When explaining this, Alice asks Kohta where her weapon is! Kohta then says Zeke and him are her weapon for now, but she eventually will have to learn to wield a weapon Takashi says as they walk off. Takashi then asks Kohta about why things are happening and he assumes it is Asami. As Kohta walks off from his disappointment, Saya tells Takashi that he has his own relationship problems. She also says that "Blood is spilled in human relationships for two reasons: money and sex!" Takashi then drools and quotes "sex" while imagining a bath towel wrapped Saeko and Rei. The scene then turns to Asami and the elderly couple on the roof. The elderly couple thank Asami for everything, then Kohta asks her if she will come with him. As they are talking, the elderly couple talks to themselves saying that they will be in heaven soon enough and they suicide, leaving nothing but their shoes behind.
Time passes for a couple hours, leading the scene to a current position then a flashback. Military men in a helicopter come to save the mall gang who are on the roof due to the kid who knew a lot about zombies snapping, stabbing someone, and opening the door. The military men then infiltrate the roof and take out all of "them" on it, making sure all the people are safe and nobody is inside. A man of the military takes off his helmet and says that they just came off a ship just off the coast. The lady of the mall gang then brings up that some "high school students" (the gang) already left earlier. The scene then flips back to an earlier position explaining what happened. It shows how one kid stabs a man going nuts and then "they" start to attack. Asami then states that everyone in the mall gang is on their own and must decide what to do to survive. Defending the mall gang, Takashi and his gang defeat some of "them" in the area, doing so he ends up using his skewer on his gun which was one use as Kohta said.
Fighting off "them" as they go, Alice asks Takashi if she can bring the bike, which he replies with a cheerful thumb up. Shizuka checks out the man stat was stabbed saying it is not a fatal wound, but this would lead to his death anyway due to his lack of movement, he would turn into one of "them". Asami and Kohta go to the roof. Kohta's plans have changed and they can no longer flee on the bikes. Asami flees downstairs trying to find some really loud fireworks that they can throw at "them". Asami says to give the bag to Alice, then asks if anyone has a lighter. Even though there were fresh lighters in the store with fireworks, Asami takes the lighter from one of the men from the mall gang. Asami lights one of the firecrackers, then throws them at "them" proving that this tactic is effective for distracting "them". One more of the members of the mall gang is soon taken out by "them". And after he goes, the boy who stabbed another man is killed by "them" as well. Kohta then explains their formation to navigate around "them". Alice makes use of the bicycle quickly dashing through "them" and throwing some of the firecrackers in a different area to distract "them". As things are looking down and the zombies are hoarding around them, Alice asks if she can use the rest of the fireworks but receives no reply.
Instead, Asami goes to save the boy who opened the door in the mall and Kohta shouts out to her. Takashi knows it it hard to abandon someone, but they cannot save everyone and sticks to his word, as he did not go out of his way to help the boy. Another one of the members from the mall gang is bitten by one of "them". Asami takes out her gun soon after and starts to shoot. As she already knows, she is attracting "them" by making a lot of noise as "they" start to surround her. Kohta tries to argue to save Asami, but even Takashi knows it is too late. Asami says she hates Kohta at her last words, yelling them which just attracts more of "them". Takashi states that she is doing it on purpose so the gang can get away because Asami is already an adult, and they are merely high school students. Kohta tries to argue that she is not much older, but then Asami said she means what she said about Kohta. Her last request is that she asks Kohta to make sure she does not turn into one of "them". As her last words Asami tries to say she loves Kohta but only gets out an "I lo..." before Kohta says that he knows. Kohta pulls the trigger crying, as one of "them" nears Asami.
The next scene goes back to normal time frame. It shows Kohta panicking because he shot Asami even though she told him to do it. Alice tells Kohta to quiet down so "they" do not hear him. Alice tries to make Kohta feel better by bringing up that her father was killed as well. Takashi starts to think about the current situation and says that they have to postpone finding Rei and Takashi's parents. He says so because they are low on ammo and there is a huge wave of "them" approaching. Takashi says that she needs Shizuka and she replies with "Oh Takashi, not here, not now" for she was thinking he meant sex. However, he actually asks about if Kohta is going to be okay in his current mental state. She says that she did not learn about this type of mental illness in psychology. Shizuka says that if they do try to make it to their houses, Kohta would surely die. It is drawn to the conclusion that if Kohta dies, Saya will snap,then it would be all downhill from their as Takashi says.
Takashi decides to take everyone to get to the highway then get to the east police station. When the gang is rushing to the highway, Zeke decides to jump into Shizuka's breasts as he cannot keep up. Kohta begins to snap again and he tells the gang to go on without him. Shizuka tells Alice to give her the bike and she dashes over to Kohta. Shzuka tries to snap him out of it by giving him a drill as one would get in the army, Kohta snaps out of it and then they depart for the east police station. Kohta starts to shoot at "them" and Takashi asks him what he is doing, which Kohta responds with that he will kill them all. Kohta gets cocky for a few seconds and Saya smacks him into sense. Kohta then starts to cry again about how he shot Asami after Saya smacks him.
After they arrive at the police station, the group finds out the police must've left in a hurry because of all the skid marks on the ground. Then, Rei starts panicking and yells at Takashi and says how can he be so calm in this situation. Takashi, knowingly the severity of what's going on around him, tells Rei to calm down. In the police station, Takashi orders everyone to go look for the guns that are stored in the armory. Just before finding the armory, Rei and Takashi manage to down a pair of "them". Takashi notes how they're able to at least die together and points toward a cellphone on the floor that shows the two in a happy picture. Saeko, a bit shocked that they were a couple, starts looking at Takashi nervously. After locating the armory and drilling the door open, they find nothing in there because the police must've taken all the weaponry when they were dispatched. Trying to find a solution, Takashi then tells everyone to go to the illegal possession's room. There, they find several weapons and ammunition. They also locate a Benelli M4 Super 90. Instead of taking all the weapons, Kohta tells Takashi that they're current weapons are better, but they can use the ammo and the Benelli. Takashi throws away the Ithaca and brandishes the Benelli instead
