After receiving an anonymous tip about some kidnapping cases, Kunikida along with Dazai and Atsushi went to speak with Rokuzō. He found being a bit late unusual and wondered if he was on a date, but Kunikida brought out his Ideal and that dates should be with a chosen woman, who he will marry after six years. Seeing the new guy, Atsushi, Rokuzō introduced himself and revealed he can find any dirt about someone for the right price. Rokuzō then explained the tip was from Azure Messenger and that he also found some pictures of the kidnapped people on the server. Rokuzō assumed the tipper wasn't a bad guy, but Dazai wondered about that, hoping that the tipper won't turn out to be one of the kidnappers. Kunikida wanted Rokuzō to keep looking for information about the tipper and then they left.
