"Sokutenkyoshi" (則天去私)
June 24, 2010 {{{FirstEngAirDate}}}
Half of the Blue Squares-turned-Yellow Scarves members counter-attack against Horoda, as they reveal themselves, as Kadota and thirty other of his friends, whom are all from Dollars. Kida is then taken to the hospital by Mikado and Anri, while Celty chases Horoda who managed to escape the warehouse. While running away with the rest of his main gang, they encounter Shizuo, who hurls a big sign post and destroys the roof of their car. Celty then stops, knowing that they encountered Shizuo, but the Ikebukuro police manage to eventually arrest Horoda and his gang. Kida is put into hospital as Anri confronts Izaya, telling him her desire to kill him after he was the one actually behind all of the problems they had encountered. Izaya manages to escape Anri, telling her that he is not weak if he can manage to go up against Shizuo. While Izaya walks home, he meets Simon, but he immediately punches Izaya in the eye, proceeding to talk in Russian about what Izaya did. Back in the hospital, Kida wakes up to Saki standing in his room and they confess their love to each other. The next day, Kida and Saki leave Ikebukuro together with Kida, giving a note to his school, and Mikado and Anri stick together. That night, the Dollars is revived, as Mikado notices that Kida had joined the chat. Kida and Saki are last seen leaving on a train, while Mikado and Anri stand on the top of their school building, saying that Kida would come back.
