The chapter fully reveals that, according to some agreement between the two, he is the one providing Ranmaru with hard drugs and protection from the yakuza. After Ranmaru appears at his coffee shop unannounced, catching Taisuke off guard, Ranmaru is entertained by his findings and describes him as "sneaky". Taisuke goes by a different first name but same family name, and covers up his facial scar, despite the fact that everyone already suspects he has ties to the yakuza anyway. Ranmaru is not able to uncover Taisuke Arakawa's true motivations, but exits the scene feeling somewhat amused to have rustled him.]]
