Plot

The Guild Arc

Murakoso and Takuichi Aoki accompany Ango when Dazai asks to meet up with him to negotiate some terms in the midst of the Guild war. As Dazai points a gun at Ango, Murakoso and Aoki are quick to point their weapons at Dazai as well, later retracting them after Dazai lowers his weapon on Ango.[3]

The Guild Aftermath Arc

Murakoso tells what document was stolen.

Later after the Guild war, Murakoso is at the scene wherein a Special Division transport van was attacked. A little while, Ango arrives. Murakoso then gives Ango the rundown of the scene, in which the transport van was attacked and the lone culprit is dressed as a postal carrier. Ango then asks what was missing inside the van, to which Murakoso replies that it was Document No. I-75-81-A.

Murakoso is intrigued about the document and asked what was it about. Ango responds that it was a report he made about Kyōka's ability, Demon Snow and her parents who were killed by it. Murakoso further asks Ango why look further into Kyōka's parents. Ango replies that the records of her parents were erased by the government which means that they are both on "their side".[4]
