Where is the meaning in survival if you cannot hate? Â The pinwheel of fate turns, as Rin rescues a boy who turns out to be the son of Kawakami. Kawakami was the man who raped her mother, as she was forced to listen from only a few feet away. A lot has happened to Kawakami, and now he is a family man. Rin will either wear the signature face-point of Kawakami's victims, or kill him and doom his son to grow up just like she did: living only for vengeance against the man who killed his father. For Rin that man is Antotsu, but this youthful leader of the Ittou-Ryuu has no desire to strike down his would -be assassin. When he and Rin finally face each other, he tests her resolve by explaining what really happened between him and her father in the past.
