Rock is hired by Balalaika to be her translator on a trip to Japan, and Revy accompanies him. Balalaika negotiates with The Washimine Group, a Yakuza group fallen on hard times, and agrees to destroy the Kosa Council, another Yakuza group, due to its ill treatment of the Washimine Group. Following the conclusion of their agreement, Balalaika orders an explosion at a Kosa Council base. Afterwards, Revy and Rock go to a Japanese festival, but Revy causes a scene when she loses at a shooting game. She is stopped by Ginji Matsuzaki, one of the festival vendors, and Ginji's companion prevents them from starting a fight. She and Rock exchange pleasantries, and as she leaves, she tells Rock that her name is Yukio. The following day, Tsugio Bando, the head of the Washimine Group, asks Ginji to aid him, recalling that Ginji was feared among all Yakuza for his use of a katana in battle. Ginji refuses, citing the lack of justice in Bando's methods. Meanwhile, Rock visits his parents' home, and Revy unwinds by playing gunmen with a group of children.
