Human Monster SagaEdit
Monster Association ArcEdit
Kamikaze attends a meeting of the Council of Swordmasters. At the meeting Atomic Samurai asks the council members for help in catching and killing Garou in worries that Bang might fail and die. The council members agree, except Haragiri who mocks Atomic Samurai's plea. Haragiri proceeds to show them the Monster Cells and reveals he had received them from the Monster Association and transforms into a Mysterious Being himself. Nichirin threatens Haragiri, telling Haragiri that if he does not stop his nonsense he will have to get serious, but Haragiri arrogantly continues to ramble. Haragiri then orders the other to eat the cells or he will kill them, but Atomic Samurai cuts him first, killing him.
