Joseph scolds Yamaji for not keeping Big D in check but is reminded that the partnership can turn at any one of his missteps. Meanwhile, Emma and Jason intend on directly hacking AUZA’s internal networks to retrieve dirt on the company. Thanks to a tracking device placed by Big D from the previous battle, they are tracked to the hotel by the organization and a battle ensues. Aska and Mike eliminate AUZA gunmen while Higan battles Big D and Jason continues to hack the company servers. Mike is hit by a bullet in his torso but is saved by his protective vest and he and Aska finish killing off the remaining gunmen. Higan defeats Big D and feeling content after Aska admits she was never on their side to begin with, he accepts his fate. Before Higan is able to finish the job, Joseph remote detonates Big D’s armored suit, obliterating him. Aska receives fatal damage from the blast and gives her final words to Higan and Mike before dying. The men say their final goodbyes before burning her body, with Higan feeling even more determined to take down the entire organization. Meanwhile, Zai’s very own armored suit finishes production.

[Bird cries]


You praised AUZA despite knowing they were up to all this crap?

I’m giving credit where it’s due.

They have access to technology that can turn brilliant ideas into a reality, as well as the vast research funding needed to support them.

Putting aside their current scheme, I believe that AUZA is an enterprise that’s honestly doing humanity a huge favor.

[Sighs] If you start going on about some kind of Iron Ninja or Captain Shinobi, I swear to God.

Screw them! Goddamn company.

Why in the hell didn’t they let me in on this project?

Well, as for our plan, Higan and I will go around to the active power plants and shut them down while simultaneously stealing the energy supplies that we need to keep operating.

What will you two do?

Do you even need to ask?

We’re going to keep on investigating those scumbags, but that means we’ll probably end up revealing all you ninjas to the public.


I’ll give you guys

full access to my computer.

By the way, there’s one thing that’s bothering me.

What’s that?

Nothing. Forget it.

Why? Are you afraid? Come on, let’s hear it.

Well, it’s just… I’ve been wondering, you know?

I can’t help it. I noticed you called Ducky “Higan.”

So, are you two a thing now or what?


Aah! Dang it!

That’s what you get for asking.

Oh, man! Damn it!


Oh! Girl, you need to respect your elders!

You brought that on yourself, partner.

I don’t get it.

That big doofus let the power plant get destroyed

right in front of him, so why let him come back?

Engaging Higan in combat without the Gusoku gear

would be foolish.

I trust in his abilities to handle the job.

He made the right call, so that should be enough.

That’s besides the point! Everything is screwed up now!

You were the one who wanted to speed up the plan, remember?

Except now the members of the advisory committee

are on the verge of bowing out

because of your brainless ninjas.

Listen up.

At this moment, I’m in the middle of using this world,

or rather, this entire planet, as a sort of game.

I exert total control over people, nature,

and all living creatures as I change the world.

It’s the greatest simulation imaginable.

But if your people keep getting in my way, then we’re through.

So then to you, this is just a game.

Yeah, that’s right. A game that I only get to play.

We ninjas have a duty.

That duty is to seek out the most vile scum on this planet,

such as yourself, and then terminate them at any cost.


Never forget

there is a greater cause than yourself.

Is that supposed to be a threat?

Well, just remember, the next time

one of your people screws up,

I’m gonna make them commit seppuku!

Imbecile does not know the difference

between a ninja and a samurai.


The time is now at hand.



The Izuna Circuit is the heart of the Gusoku gear.

It’s very sensitive and frail,

which means if you use it like that motorcycle of yours,

you’ll quickly put it into a bad mood.

And what happens if I upset it?

Then it will never smile for you again.

You have to be a gentleman. Treat it like it’s Mari.

That won’t work. I made her angry all the time.

You got to be kidding me.

So, anyway, that’s the quick rundown

of how to operate and maintain the Gusoku gear.

I’ll give you the manual to read,

but it’s better to just learn firsthand.



This is my problem to deal with.

You’ve already done more than enough for me.

Please just stick with Mike and help him out for now.

When this is all over, you need to find a safe place to stay

and never tell anyone where you are.


God, I’m so tired of hearing shit like “it’s my problem”

or “I’m the one who has to take care of it.”

Seriously, why is it that older guys

are always acting like they’re so cool?

I’m too old to try and act like I’m so cool.

Like I told you before, in this business,

your partner’s as good as family.

I have a duty to uphold,

so I’m going with you, Higan.

However, I’m also going to help

the two of you out before I leave.

I know that Jason guy seems like a weirdo,

but his skills are pretty solid.

It shouldn’t take long if both of us work together.

[Door opens] Oh.

Did you just call me a weirdo?

[Gong clangs]

Oh, nice. You know how to cook?

I grabbed what was left in the stock room

and whipped something up.

Try not to make one of your stupid comments.

What brought this on?

Let me explain it to you.

Throughout history, gangs, the Mafia, and the Yakuza,

have always shared meals together.


Hey, you care to explain

why my serving’s so damn small?

Isn’t that obvious?

It’s because you never contribute anything.

Now, you… you better watch…

In this business, your partner is as good as family.

You have always been someone I consider part of my family.

Hey, what’s on your apron? Is it kanji for jackass?

Shut up! You’re the jackass!


Mr. Secretary of Energy, what’s this pressing matter

you wanted to talk to me about?

I want to hear

what you have to say about the power plant explosion.

It’s exactly as I explained before.

This was an act of sabotage committed

by someone who got wind of our operational test.

The FBI are hunting them down as we speak.

Then I need to visit as an observer

so I can verify the facts.

That’s not possible.

I can’t risk our technology getting stolen.

I already sent you records of all our tests.

I gather that you’ve more or less

forced the advisory committee

into accepting your bribes with some saber rattling.

But you know they can’t just ignore public opinion.

I let the trouble that you’ve been having in the city slide,

but this is different.

You damn people

are nothing but cowards.


Listen, it’s our cooperation that has your dreams

on the verge of coming true.

No, I’m the one

who’s making your freaking dreams come true!


You seem to have lost your temper there.

It’s one of my few flaws.

I’m pissed at myself and those political clowns.

So what’s Big D doing?

He is currently at his barbershop

getting his daily fade.

Get him on the line, please.

He requested this time off.

It’s on the schedule.

This is an emergency!

[Cellphone ringing]

Shouldn’t you answer that?

Nah, man, this is my time.

Besides, I already know what he wants me to do,

and I’ve done what needs to be done.


Beauty is where I find my serenity.

There’s no point in living, or fighting,

when there’s no grace in it.

Well, I hope your boss can understand that.

Yeah. When pigs fly.

I’m not able to get through to him.

Screw that goddamn bucket head!


[Heels clacking]

I’m very sorry about this, sir.

Please allow me to make it up to you on his behalf.


Wait. I’m going to go out for a little bit.

I’ll get ready immediately.

You can stay.

I’m looking forward to seeing how you’ll make it up to me

when I get back.


Hey, crow man.

I rarely ever see you around here.

You know, if I were the boss,

I would have just let you handle it right away.


Why was he here?

Oh, you mean the CEO?

He came to personally check on the maintenance status

of Big D’s Gusoku gear.

It’s the first time he’s ever done anything like that.

What’s the progress on this one?

Currently at 92%.

It should be completed very soon.



Studying hard, eh?

I’m still reeling from the fact that she’s a ninja.

I had absolutely no idea.

Yeah, I can’t believe it either.

I worked much closer with her than you did,

and I never saw one damn thing

that would make me think she’s one of you.

Hey, Ducky, do me a favor.

Keep Emma safe, you hear?

Our target is a report stored on their main server

that contains operational data on the reactor.

It should include evidence of them

using newly developed weapons

to secretly intervene in foreign disputes,

as well as the name of whoever they report to.

Who could that be?

One of this country’s

top brass.

That sounds juicy.

AUZA’s main server

is hosted across a constellation of independent satellites.

Hold on. I got fired while working on

developing that very system.

Now you’re saying it’s operational?

Yeah, and we’re going to hack it.

I’ll teach them for laying their grubby hands on my work.

I appreciate your business.


Now that’s fresh.

Your skills are even better than they were yesterday.

I look forward to seeing you again tomorrow.

[Cellphone ringing]

This is the R&D department.

We have just completed the maintenance on your Gusoku gear.

It’s ready for you.


Your timing couldn’t be more elegant.


No freaking way!

We’ve already broken past the firewall.

Stay focused. This is where things get tricky.

[Laughs] I’m taking back my satellites.

Suck on this, you goddamn AUZA pricks!

Calm down.

I’ll drag ’em down to hell

with me if I have to.

Get ready to burn, you bastards!

I guess it’s true what they say about desperation

being like courage for cowards.

[Whooshing] Huh?

What the hell is that?

A ninja.

How’d he find us?

Hurry and get into your gear.

He caught us off guard.

Ah, hell! Just as we were starting to wreck shit up.

Emma, can I handle any of the weapons that are in the truck?

They all function just like modern firearms.

Perfect. You two stay here.

Let’s keep going.

Next stop all the secret accounts

in the AUZA banking network

a list of every dignitary and elites in the country.

The president is going to have a goddamn heart attack.


Looks like we’re both under the same limitations.

Now, let’s do this!



Oh, my God. Scumbags!

We’re almost done! Stay focused.


Well, good thing it’s so quiet!


[Tires screech]

Little fool.


They’re not there to ruin your party.

[Gunshots firing rapidly]

No, no, no, no, no, no!


That should buy us a little time.

Just how little are we talking here?

About a minute.

Even less if they decide to use a rocket launcher.

Launcher ready!



[Men scream]

Ha! Not on my watch, assholes!

Huh? [Gunshots firing rapidly]

Aw, hell!

[Slow-motioned scream]

Can I leave this to you?

I’m all over it.

Transfer the data over to my external hard drive.

It’ll automatically encrypt whatever you put on it.






Whoa! Impressive.




What the… hell?



[Gunshot fires]


[Gunshots fire]


Damn, Emma, you’re never

going to listen to my orders, are you?

Yeah, of course not.


I made it into the main server. [Beeping]

External access detected. Defense programs activated.

Crap. They’re already on to me.

But [Computer chimes]

it’s too late.


[Gunshot fires]



[High-pitched ringing] Mike!

Talk to me!

Ducky, keep Emma safe, you hear?

The only thing I’m focused on is crushing the organization.

Huh? Hey, wait a minute.

This has to end.

It’s the only way we can free

all the ninjas from their missions.

Making sure Emma has a better future after I’m finished

is your responsibility.

Mike! Mike!

[Groans weakly]

Come on.

I’ve taken kicks from you that have done more damage.



[Grunts] Don’t worry about me.

I ain’t dead yet.

And besides, you’re the one who said you still have a lot

to learn from me, remember?

Yeah, I remember, boss man.


You ready?

Of course.


Special delivery!




Go! Go! Go!



Take this, you sons of bitches!


[Men grunt]


[Gunshot fires]


Ha! Hey!




[Suit clatters]

That was outstanding.

I’m perfectly satisfied.

What an elegant battle we had.

Are you okay?


Big D!


Tell me… why would you do something

that’s ugly as betray us?

I know it may seem like that to you,

but the truth of the matter is

I never betrayed what I truly believe in.

So you were never on our side to begin with, then?

That’s a hard truth to swallow, but a beautiful answer.

Okay. Go ahead. Let’s end this.

[Energy pulsing] Ahh, that little prick!

How dishonorable can he be?!












That dumb-ass!

He’s always ruining my plans.

So this was you?

That was supposed to kill all five of them, but it only killed one.





Higan… is Mike okay?

[Breathing shakily]

He’s fine.


I’m… so… sorry.


broke my promise.

Hang in there! You said you would watch over me

until the end, damn it!

Come on, Emma.

Listen… Mike…

Hold on. We’re calling an ambulance.

Don’t die on me.

Hey, Jason!


[Breathing weakly]



is my real face.

[Gasps] Like I said before,

there’s nothing that surprises me anymore.

I bet… you’d never recognize me if we met like this.

Change your appearance all you want,

I’d still know it was you.

I’ve been in this business long enough to tell.

[Exhales shallowly]

How could you?

That’s something I can teach you later.

[Inhales sharply]

H-Hey, Emma?

I always thought that when my time came, I would…

I would definitely die alone.

[Gasps] Don’t start with that bullshit!

You’re not going to die here!

Emma! Live on!

[Singing weakly] ♪ I’m so lucky, baby ♪

♪ ‘Cause you are… my girlfriend ♪




This is precious to you, right? Don’t go losing it.

Oh, yeah. Thank you.

You know, I think he kind of looks like you.

[Scoffs] I think you had way too much to drink!


[Singing off-key] ♪ I’m so lucky, baby ♪

♪ ‘Cause you are my girlfriend ♪


Don’t laugh at me!

♪ And maybe ♪

♪ You’re my one and only ♪


♪ Tell me… ♪



[Crying] Emma.




She was the biggest pain in the ass

that I ever had the pleasure to work with.

Always showed up late, never listened.

At some point, I found myself thinking that talking with her

was what it might feel like if my daughter was still alive.

So to me, Emma was like

having another chance with my daughter.


But… there was a guilt that came with it.

[Crying softly]

I felt like I could never tell her.


Why would you ever think you were going to die alone?

Stupid girl.

Damn it!

I should have just told her how I felt.

Even if you never said it, she knew.

I’ve never seen a ninja die with that kind of look on their face.



I’m going to tear the organization to pieces.

Whenever Mari fought,

her goal was always to defend.

[Flames roaring]

[Fire crackling]

It’s time to put an end to this.

[Computer chiming]
