SummaryEdit

Togusa finds himself in the hospital after being shot, but is desperate to impart what he has learned to the rest of the group. Through Togusa’s memories, Section 9 experiences the DEA raid against the Sunflower Society, prompting anger and rage. The Chief takes it upon himself to notify the head of the DEA of Togusa’s presence at the Sunflower Society building during the raid, prompting the DEA chief to order the Narcotics Suppression Squad (NSS) to the house of Dr. Imakurusu. Imakurusu had overseen the board that denied the Murai Vaccine; after being diagnosed with CS, he began using the vaccine and subsequently went into hiding. Section 9 believes Imakurusu may hold a clue to unraveling the entire Laughing Man case, and have undertaken a desperate search to locate him. With the aid of the American Empire and their unique surveillance satellites, Section 9 manages to find the doctor, and Batou volunteers to go after him. Elsewhere, high ranking elements of the Japanese government have launched their own campaign against Section 9 in an effort to bury the truth of the Laughing Man case, backing the NSS against Section 9. When both parties arrive at Imakurusu's location, all hell breaks loose between the DEA’s NSS squad and Section 9. Though they are unsuccessful in rescuing Imakurusu, Section 9 manages to get the evidence they need to take action against the DEA.
