Mine reveals that the Hamazaki Family has been eradicated overnight and that his goal is to do anything to keep the Tojo Clan together.
While he doubts that Daigo Dojima would have done things in his method. He is committed to keeping the Tojo Clan together and to prevent further bloodshed from the Chinese.

Majima agrees to take over leadership of the Kazama Family.
While waiting for everybody's plans to come together, Kiryu's first order of business is making sure Rikiya gets back safely to Okinawa. After making sure Rikiya gets to a taxi, Kiryu receives a call from the Minister of Defense Ryuzo Tamiya. He requests a meeting with Kiryu and says that he will send a driver to meet him outside of Millennium Tower. Kiryu then decides to call Date and meet up with him first at Serena.
