Later, he got instructed again to capture Tetsu Tachibana alive in his current hideout, Little Asia. And so he proceeds to the place along with Dojima's men, where later he encounters Tachibana and Kiryu. He then shots Kiryu, making him severely wounded.

Lao Gui tries to kill Majima with his pistol, but Awano, impressed by Majima's resolve, shields him with his body. Awano, bloodied and beaten, tries to attack Lao Gui for interrupting their conversation, but he effortlessly kills him by impaling him with several of his needles. Dojima walks in and tells Majima that because of him, Awano had to die and he must kill Shimano for his betrayal. Majima declares he will kill them both for Makoto. Dojima warns Lao Gui not to get careless and goes to his office. Lao Gui fights Majima, but despite using all of his weapons, Lao Gui was defeated by him and knocked into Dojima's office.
