DDT “TOYOCHO GOLD’S GYM SUPER CENTER GRAND OPENING MEMORIAL MAT PRO WRESTLING ~MUSCLE IS A LIFETIME CLOTHING~”, 17/07/2018
Tokyo Toyocho Gold’s Gym Super Center 4th Floor

1. 4 Way Tag Match: Sanshiro Takagi & HARASHIMA defeated Danshoku Dieno & Kazusada Higuchi, Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie and Akito & Tomomitsu Matsunaga when HARASHIMA pinned Matsunaga with the Somato from a trampoline (38:30).

To celebrate the opening of a new Gold’s Gym branch in Toyocho, DDT came along to hold a pro wrestling match inside it. Mad Paulie got in the mood by having the Gold’s Gym logo painted on the back of his head. The match began inside the gymnasium where a mat was supplied for the wrestlers to grapple on. Obviously the wrestling didn’t stay there.

Sanshiro Takagi found a bunch of basketballs and encouraged everyone to turn the match into a game of dodgeball. The children in the crowd joined in by throwing the balls at Danshoku Dieno. Over at the trampoline Tetsuya Endo used it to do a 450 Splash onto Dieno as he laid on the crash pad.

Akito found a kicking pad and used it to guard himself from HARASHIMA’s kicks. Paulie, Kazusada Higuchi and Tomomitsu Matsunaga approached each other in the centre of the floor and had a sumo contest using the Gold’s Gym logo as the ring. Takagi was inspired by a hula hoop to move the match over to the fitness room.

The people already exercising in the room did not expect to see a wrestling match suddenly appear. Matsunaga and Dieno used a squat machine to put Endo in the Danshoku Nightmare. Higuchi and Mad Paulie went for a jog on the running machines.

The wrestlers were surprised to discover that Masaya Takahashi fro Big Japan was there working out. He got involved in the match by Double Chopping Endo while Akito held Endo back.

The match went up to the rooftop where the tennis and futsal courts can be found. Everybody decided to put the match on hold so they could play a game of football instead. After a long 5 minute game that was decided on a penalty shootout, Takagi decided he had enough and went back to fighting. Somehow he attacked his partner HARASHIMA by mistake, probably because they were on opposite teams for football.

Everybody moved back down to the gymnasium to finish off the match by the mat. However Higuchi and Endo fought their way up to the balcony. Higuchi tried to throw Endo over the edge to the crash mat below. Endo held on for dear life but eventually he fell onto the pad.

Higuchi came back down and lifted a wooden platform onto his shoulders to hit his opponents with. Dieno jumped onto a vault block and laid into the Hell Gate position. Both Takagi and Akito were knocked onto the springboard and they bounced into Dieno’s backside. The same happened to HARASHIMA but he hit the Somato on Dieno!

Takagi dragged Matsunaga back to the mat and he gave him the Stunner. HARASHIMA then ran around the gymnasium to build up speed. He charged towards a trampoline and jumped off it to hit a high Somato on Matsunaga for the three count.

Takagi celebrated the win by shooting a basketball into the hoop and bragging about being in his junior high school’s basketball club. He missed the throw. Takagi then went in search of the gym’s manager to find out if the wrestlers got in trouble for today’s match. The manager told him it was ok and he was happy that all of the different rooms got to be involved.

DDT “HANDMADE IN JAPAN FES 2018” Results

July 8, 2018

DDT “HANDMADE IN JAPAN FES 2018”, 07/07/2018
Tokyo Big Sight
??? Fans

1. Falls Count Anywhere 3 Way Tag Match: Sanshiro Takagi & Kazusada Higuchi defeated HARASHIMA & Keisuke Ishii and Danshoku Dieno & Makoto Oishi when Higuchi pinned Oishi with the Avalanche Argentine Backbreaker from the Stage through a Table (25:38).

For the 5th year in a row DDT travelled over to the HandMade In Japan Fes to make a mess with their Rojo Pro Wrestling match. Sanshiro Takagi wasted no time in collecting chairs while Kazusada Higuchi entered the starting area carrying a ladder. When HARASHIMA and Keisuke Ishii entered they couldn’t find any chairs so HARASHIMA sat down at a nearby drum set and played a tune. Danshoku Dieno & Makoto Oishi then arrived with the remaining chairs.

The match began on the stage but quickly moved to other areas of the venue, the first being the dining hall. Oishi cheekily asked customers if he could take a bite of their food. HARASHIMA attacked Dieno’s backside with traffic cones on his arms.

Down the hall they moved to a marketplace where Dieno took a break to go shopping. He bought a yellow cap. Meanwhile Takagi and Oishi fought their way over to a peanut butter and they forced each other to taste it. Oishi then tried to stab Takagi’s forehead with the tasting spoon. Higuchi lifted the ladder onto his shoulders and spun around, hitting everybody including his partner Takagi. Oishi stopped Higuchi with a chairshot.

Ishii sat Takagi down on a chair and lined him up for HARASHIMA to do a long distance Somato. However Dieno cut HARASHIMA off with the Lip Lock. The match found its way back to the stage where Dieno & Oishi formed a man-made “Hell Car” but their rolling action was stopped by Higuchi.

Ishii stepped back in and fought with Dieno until Takagi arrived on the Dramatic Dream Cycle! He ran over Dieno with it.

A table was set up below the stage where Higuchi and Oishi were fighting. Oishi tried to dive onto Higuchi but he was caught. Higuchi got back on the stage and put Oishi into a Canadian Backbreaker. He then jumped off the stage and hit the Backbreaker through the table! Oishi was out for the count and Higuchi got the pin.

After the match Takagi and Higuchi called the festival organiser up to the stage. Higuchi told him that the Hand Made Festival is held two times a year. He asked the organiser if he wants DDT to return for the winter festival later this year? The organiser said he would consider it if DDT promises to get more involved with the event.


Irie-gun Grows, Sasaki Has Big Love For Asuka, Campsite Pro Wrestling Is Back

July 6, 2018

Tokyo Ryogoku KFC Hall

0. Under Match: Mizuki Watase Vs Daiki Shimomura

5. DAMNATION Vs Irie-gun: Daisuke Sasaki, Soma Takao, Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie Vs Shigehiro Irie, Sammy Guevara, Facade & Baliyan Akki
6. Masahiro Takanashi Vs Isami Kodaka

Irie-gun is really taking on an international flavour. Indian wrestler Baliyan Akki (sorry for getting his name wrong all this time) who has been competing in DNA and Ganbare☆Wrestling this year is the latest addition to the unit.

DDT “DDT LIVE! MAJI MANJI #11”, 10/07/2018
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

0. NO TV Match: Yuki Ueno Vs Akito
0. NO TV Match: Danshoku Dieno Vs Rekka
1. Daisuke Sasaki & Asuka Vs Kazusada Higuchi & Makoto Oishi
2. 3 Way 6-Man Tag Match: Shigehiro Irie, Sammy Guevara & Facade Vs Soma Takao, Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie Vs Keisuke Ishhi, MAO & Daiki Shimomura
3. Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title – Battle Royal: KUDO (c) Vs Konosuke Takeshita Vs Toru Owashi Vs Masahiro Takanashi Vs Saki Akai Vs Nobuhiro Shimatani Vs Saori Anou
4. Naomi Yoshimura & Keisuke Okuda Vs Shunma Katsumata & Kouki Iwasaki
5. Kota Umeda “Mad Dog” 7 Match Series – 4th Match: Dick Togo Vs Kota Umeda
6. DDT Extreme Title – Blindfolded Hidden Breasts Death Match: HARASHIMA (c) Vs Antonio Honda

The main event will be light hearted but both HARASHIMA and Antonio Honda will take it seriously. There’s a championship and a Right To Challenge Gauntlet on the line after all.

Kota Umeda is currently 0-3 in his trial series but the wealth of talent and experience on offer is making this a worthwhile project for the youngster. Dick Togo is next up on his list.

This week’s episode saw the surprise first appearance of the “Neon Ninja” Facade, walking down to the ring as part of Irie-gun. The guy is a high risk taker and adds another dangerous element to Shigehiro Irie’s growing faction.

A change in attitude is afoot in DAMNATION and it is all because Daisuke Sasaki has fallen in love. He and Asuka originally hit it off at the Toshimaen Street Wrestling show back in May and when they got to team up again this week, Sasaki did everything he could to protect Asuka during the match. Sasaki says DAMNATION now stands for “Big Love” and he is eager to team up with Asuka again. While Asuka is calling herself the “DAMNATION Diva” there hasn’t been any official decision made in the group yet to induct her as the newest member. She’s at least in a better position in connection to the group than Nobuhiro Shimatani so far.

Danshoku Dieno is serving a one show suspension from the “DDT LIVE! MAJI MANJI” broadcast after he was sent off during the World Cup Rules match this week. He is relegated to the dark match because of this.

DDT “DRAMATIC MOOD SEIJO↑↑ 2018”, 14/07/2018

6. Shigehiro Irie & Sammy Guevara Vs HARASHIMA & Yuki Ueno
7. Shirioshi City Is Number One! No, It Is Osaki City! It Is Seijo In A Way! Special Single Match: Tetsuya Endo Vs MAO

Another city vs city grudge has popped up in DDT with Tetsuya Endo and MAO both fighting for their hometowns. Seijo Hall plays the neutral ground for those two to solve their differences.

DDT “TOYOCHO GOLD’S GYM SUPER CENTER GRAND OPENING MEMORIAL MAT PRO WRESTLING ~MUSCLE IS A LIFETIME CLOTHING~”, 17/07/2018
Tokyo Toyocho Gold’s Gym Super Center 4th Floor

1. 4 Way Tag Match: Sanshiro Takagi & HARASHIMA Vs Danshoku Dieno & Kazusada Higuchi Vs Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie Vs Akito & Tomomitsu Matsunaga

I think Shunma Katsumata should have been in this match teaming with Akito. Then I remember Katsumata only has a low tier membership with his local Gold’s Gym so he probably doesn’t see the point in travelling over to the grand opening of a new branch.

DDT “BATTLE OF NAGANO”, 15/07/2018
Nagano Mielparque Hall

1. Shinsyu Pro Wrestling Offer Match: X Vs X
2. Kazuki Hirata & Toru Owashi Vs Danshoku Dieno & Antonio Honda
3. Shigehiro Irie & Mizuki Watase Vs Kazusada Higuchi & Nobuhiro Shimatani
4. Konosuke Takeshita, Akito & Shunma Katsumata Vs Daisuke Sasaki, Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie

The Timo Timo Timo Dragons have stopped the gimmick and will return to normal. That means Kazuki Hirata is back in the spots where Hiratimo Dragon was previously advertised in.

6. KO-D Openweight Title: Shigehiro Irie (c) Vs HARASHIMA
*HARASHIMA will cash in his Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere Gauntlet.

Daisuke Sasaki’s love for Asuka has led to a singles match between the two. Except maybe Sasaki doesn’t think it’s a wrestling match. Whatever it is, he’s organising something for Asuka and so far she’s going along with it.

1. Special Hardcore Tag Match: Shigehiro Irie & Jason Kincaid Vs Jun Kasai & Daisuke Sasaki

Not much time for Kazusada Higuchi to rest. He still has the KO-D Tag Team Titles to defend with Daisuke Sekimoto tomorrow.

Toru Owashi has been banished from Japan so DDT is bringing in yet another luchador to replaced him. I’m not sure if Washitimo Dragon will be pleased to be here.

DDT “SUMMER VACATION 2018”, 22/07/2018
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. KO-D Openweight Title: Shigehiro Irie (c) Vs HARASHIMA
*HARASHIMA will cash in his Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere Gauntlet.

Next up for Shigehiro Irie is HARASHIMA. That is as long as HARASHIMA has a Right To Challenge Gauntlet. This is the match Irie wants more than anything when it comes to defending the KO-D Openweight Title. HARASHIMA is the one man in DDT that Irie cannot beat one on one. It is this impassible mountain that has sent Irie on international excursions over and over so he could get stronger. If Irie truly has a vision for what DDT should be then beating HARASHIMA may finally see it come to light.

Tokyo Ryogoku Kokugikan

1. The World’s Crazy Couple Battle: Makoto Oishi & Misaki Ohata Vs Joey Ryan & Laura James

When it comes to going viral, Joey Ryan doesn’t like copycats. So when he found out that Makoto Oishi proposed to Misaki Ohata in the middle of a pro wrestling match, he wasn’t happy about it. Ryan proposed to Laura James during a match first! Clearly there’s only one place to settle this. Sumo Hall! The first match announced for “RYOGOKU PETER PAN 2018” will be couple versus couple. You see, this is the kind of fun that John Cena and Nikki Bella are missing out on.

DDT “ROJO WRESTLING IN TOSHIMAEN ~MASS!! DANSHOKU SCHOOL FIGHTING GARDEN UNIVERSITY OF MARTIAL ARTS~”, 25/05/2018
Tokyo Toshimaen
300 Fans – Super No Vacancy Full House

5. Sanshiro Takagi, Ippanjin Munenori Sawa & Meiko Satomura defeated Danshoku Dieno, Isami Kodaka & Cassandra Miyagi when Satomura pinned Dieno with the Scorpio Rising (33:35).

By day the Tokyo Toshimaen is an amusement park full of fun and games. But at night it transforms into a secret battlefield designed to train warriors. Today DDT made use of the park to determine Japan’s national team for the Fighting World Cup, a mysterious global competition that is held every four years. Teams made up of two men and one woman would fight each other in battles to the death throughout the night. Danshoku Dieno arrived at the park with his selection of troops: Raiden (Choun-Shiryu), Makoto Oishi, Konosuke Takeshita, Shunma Katsumata, Cherry and Cassandra Miyagi. It didn’t take long for their first set of opponents to appear.

The first bout was Oishi, Raiden & Miyagi against HARASHIMA, Gota Ihashi & Makoto. When the girls fought each other Makoto would intentionally use moves on Cassandra that allowed her to do sexy poses in the process. Cassandra then challenged Makoto to a race. She would sit on a cart pushed by Raiden while Makoto found a bike to cycle on. Makoto won. HARASHIMA appeared with traffic cones over his arms that he used to Lariat his opponents. He ran from a long distance over to Oishi to give him the Somato but Oishi moved out of the way. HARASHIMA hit Ihashi instead by accident and Oishi pinned Ihashi to win the match. Dieno’s group past their first trial but not without casualties. Both Raiden and Miyagi died from their injuries after the match.

Dieno’s group advanced to the plaza. Waiting for them were Mike Bailey, MAO & Tsukasa Fujimoto all standing in hero poses. Dieno sent Takeshita, Katsumata & Cherry to fight them. Bailey and Katsumata fought their way over to a pond allegedly filled with sulphuric acid. Katsumata fell into it when he missed a flying kick and was never seen again. The fighting moved back towards the plaza stage where Takeshita found himself in a 3 on 1 situation. However he was able to fight against the odds and he pinned MAO with a Veritcal Drop Brainbuster. Again the damage dealt to Dieno’s side during the battle proved to be too much and Takeshita collapsed. His final words to his friends before losing consciousness were “Muscle is justice!”

There was no time to mourn because Kazusada Higuchi, Tanomusaku Toba & Misaki Ohata were next to challenge our heroes. Dieno began to panic because there were no more women left on his team to fight for him. The cavalry of Yukio Sakaguchi, Masahiro Takanashi & Saki Akai arrived in a truck just in time to fight Higuchi, Toba & Ohata. The battle was horrific to see as the savage warriors took to the rides and had the time of their lives… Anyway when they were done sampling the fun of the park they went back to fighting. Takanashi lured Higuchi and Toba onto the truck’s loading platform and ordered Sakaguchi to raise it. Sakaguchi did so and the fighters slid off as the platform tilted over. Akai climbed the truck and dove onto everyone below. She stayed on top of both Higuchi and Toba to pin them.

The dust settled but Sakaguchi didn’t. In a rage of bloodlust, Sakaguchi grabbed a sledgehammer and threatened to kill Ohata with it. Suddenly Makoto Oishi stepped in between them. He pleaded with Sakaguchi to spare her because they are dating! Oishi then turned to Ohata and placed a metal nut on her finger. “Misaki-san, please marry me!” Ohata punched Oishi. Sakaguchi got back into the truck and drove towards Ohata but Oishi jumped in front of the truck! “I’m dying! I love you! I will make you happy!” were Oishi’s words to Ohata afterwards. Ohata accepted Oishi’s proposal and they got on the truck to go get married!

Back to the death battles. Akai decided to stay and help Dieno’s team but an arrow from out of nowhere struck her in the head and killed her. Once again Dieno was without enough warriors to continue until King Otono (Choun-Shiryu again) and Space Warrior Galaxy Sophia (Cherry) appeared along with a revived Takeshita. They approached the park square where they found DAMNATION hanging out. Daisuke Sasaki was making out with Asuka while the others were just minding their own business until they saw Dieno’s team stepping into their territory. Tetsuya Endo, Mad Paulie & Asuka decided to fight them while Dieno, Sasaki and Soma Takao went over to enjoy a rollercoaster. Paulie perched himself on a bench so both Endo and Asuka could do Moonsaults off of him until Takeshita hit him with a Knee Strike. Takeshita then put Paulie through a table with a Diving Body Press from a Ladder. That ended the match but the damage took its toll again. Takeshita was left clutching his knee while screaming “Muscle is justice!” over to Dieno.

And so Dieno approached the final area for one more battle but he was alone. All of his friends and allies were either slain or on their honeymoon. Luckily for him Isami Kodaka appeared with a resurrected Cassandra Miyagi. Both were willing to help Dieno so they could take part in an exciting battle. Waiting for them were Sanshiro Takagi & Ippanjin Munenori Sawa. Behind them was the massive Flying Pirate ride and standing right there inside it was Meiko Satomura. The two sides fought until Kodaka asked if he could go on the Flying Pirate ride. They all agreed and went on the ride. Some of them felt sick after the ride but were encouraged by the crowd to go on it a second time. This is why the match lasted half an hour!

They eventually got back to fighting. Takagi, Sawa & Satomura climbed a bench to attempt the Sendai Golden Shower but Miyagi cut them off. Dieno positioned himself for the Hell Gate and Miyagi threw both Takagi and Sawa into it. She tried to do the same to Satomura but it was countered and Satomura threw Miyagi into Dieno’s backside. Kodaka climbed a ladder and hit the Giga Ladder Break Diving Double Knee Drop on Takagi. The wrestlers found a merry-go-round and went for a ride on that. They had a lot more fun on that than on the Flying Pirate ship. When they got off Takagi gave Dieno the Stunner, Sawa gave Dieno the Shining Wizard and Satomura gave Dieno the Scorpio Rising for the three count.

The challenge is over and Japan’s team has been decided. Team Hentai Sendai Big Boss are Japan’s strongest warriors! A signboard used as a symbol of real power was given to them but suddenly Satomura attacked Takagi & Sawa! She takes the signboard from them and calls the other women to join her side. Toshimaen belongs to them! Dieno collapsed in shock as the show was completed.

Satomura said she had fun doing street wrestling for the first time. It was dangerous but she enjoyed it and learned how any location can become a battlefield. She wants to fight in DDT and appear on AbemaTV more, it doesn’t matter if it to wrestle against men or women. Hisaya Imabayashi heard her and came up with an idea. He invited her to the 29th May episode of “DDT LIVE! MAJI MANJI” so she can compete in the Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere Rumble. Satomura agreed. She later expressed interest in also having a match against Isami Kodaka.

Danshoku Dino recently revealed his intentions of running for a seat in the Kanagawa City Council because he is “a pure white heart wanting change in the local government”. That struck a nerve with Sanshiro Takagi because of a failed political campaign that he himself was a part of in the same area during the 1990s. To this day the mere sight of his campaign poster is enough to give him PTSD. Dino announced his intention to visit Kanagawa today to meet the locals and Takagi promised to meet him there for a Street Pro Wrestling match.

Dino’s visit brought him to the Fujisawa Meiten Building as part of a livestream on AbemaTV. With him was his cabinet of wrestlers: his secretary Makoto Oishi, the carer of his personal belongings Yuki Ueno, Fujisawa local Yuki Kamifuku, campaign supporter Nodoka-oneesan and town mascot Fuji-kyun. When they approached the Meiten Building Dino learned that the building’s owner Hideyuki Yamada is a powerful figure who can help get Dino what he wants. They were greeted by Akinaga Toyomoto at the entrance. First part of the tour was the bookshop on the 2nd Floor.

Takagi was there in the bookshop along with Toru Owashi waiting for Dino to begin their match. Dino promised Yamada not to get involved in any violence himself so he offered Ueno & Oishi to take his place. Takagi sent Owashi to fight them along with a surprise, Chinsuke Nakamura! Out came Nakamura accompanied by a man with a violin to play Nakamura’s song. The match began and the wrestlers fought around the ordinary customers. Nakamura gave Oishi a Low Blow but Ueno rolled him up with a School Boy for the three count. Throughout the show, AbemaTV had a poll on their site asking viewers if they support Dino’s candidacy. After the first match the poll was 66.2% in favour of Dino.

They moved on to a clothing shop on the 3rd Floor. Miyu Yamashita & Yuka Sakazaki were there browsing through the aisle. Kamifuku told them she heard there were nice clothes on sale here but she would never wear the stuff they were looking at. That sparked Match #2: Kamifuku & Nodoka-oneesan Vs Yamashita & Sakazaki. They fought over to a bookstore where they were warned not to damage any books. Nodoka grabbed a book and held it up to prevent her opponents from attacking her until she was disarmed. Sakazaki piled Nodoka on top of Kamifuki then hit the Magical Girl Splash from a stool. Yamashita then pinned Kamifuku with the Crash Rabbit Heat. The girls all got along afterwards and ditched the others so they could go get tea on the 1st Floor.

Dino went up to the stationary shop on the 4th Floor and bumped into the Naomi Kingdom. He caught Akira Jo trying to shoplift so the Kingdom attacked his cabinet. Dino called for help and it was answered by HARASHIMA, Soma Takao & Kota Umeda. A 6-Man Tag Match then took place. There was a string of Headscissors that was turned into a Crab Hold chain. Takao placed a shopping basket over Jo’s head and HARASHIMA hit the Somato for the win. Dino kicked the Naomi Kingdom out of the shop. However his approval score dropped slightly to 63.5%.

A message from Takagi was passed to Dino. It said Takagi was waiting for him in the 1st Floor market. Dino went down and there was Takagi in a sectioned off area. But it was a trap! Tanomusaku Toba appeared out of nowhere and knocked out both Oishi & Ueno. Dino called for help and saw that Konosuke Takeshita & Shunma Katsumata were nearby having a meal. They expressed support for Dino and agreed to fight Takagi & Toba. They fought each other with chairs, traffic cones and food they bought from the nearby stalls. Takagi knocked Takeshita & Katsumata down in front of a car ride. Takagi got on the car ride wanting to run them over but all it did was rock back and forth. Takagi put Katsumata through a table with a Piledriver but Takeshita won the match by giving Toba a Brainbuster onto a watermelon.

Dino said his goodbyes to ALL OUT and moved on to an outdoor area where he saw Maki Ito arguing with DEADLIFT LOLITA. Both of them claimed they reserved the concert stage for a performance and sharing it wasn’t an option. Dino suggested they have a match to decide and ordered Oishi to be Ito’s partner. Ito did a stage dive onto everyone below. Oishi and Reika Saiki got back onto the stage and Saiki submitted Oishi with the Tower Bridge. She and Lady Beard got to sing while Dino went back inside the building.

All of the fighting so far took its toll on Dino’s cabinet. He was now the only one left as he approached the lecture hall. Inside he found a Smile Therapy session taking place by a man named Mr. Akasaka. The only people in there with him were Ken Ohka & Gota Ihashi. They didn’t like Dino’s interruption and attacked him. Despite this, Dino refused to fight back. All looked grim when the mascot Fuji-kyun returned! It convinced Dino that pro wrestling is sport, not violence. Dino agreed and finally began to fight back. Together they defeated Ohka & Ihashi. Dino got to kiss Mr. Akasaka during the match. Afterwards Dino asked where the owner Yamada was. Akasaka said he was on the roof of the building.

Dino went up to the roof but couldn’t find Yamada. Instead there was Takagi and he was accompanied by DAMNATION! He said DAMNATION were now his friends but Daisuke Sasaki confessed that they were only teaming with him because he promised to pay them 15,000 yen. According to Sasaki that is way more money than what DDT usually pays them. Dino was in trouble but he suddenly got help in the forms of Kazusada Higuchi, Mike Bailey & MAO. This was it. The final battle! Tetsuya Endo, Bailey and MAO all did Moonsaults. Mad Paulie squashed some people. Higuchi blocked Sasaki’s Hurricanrana by whipping him into a fence. Takagi’s team got the upper hand and Takagi ordered DAMNATION to finish them off. However Sasaki demanded that they get paid another 15,000 yen as an extra charge. Takagi refused to DAMNATION abandoned him. It was now 4 Vs 1 in Dino’s favour and they all defeated Takagi. Dino’s final approval score was 61.3%.

The group all took a photo together on top of Takagi to use as Dino’s campaign poster. However Dino noticed that Yamada was still nowhere to be seen. A beaten Takagi told Dino where to find him, pointing over to an upper section of the roof. Dino went over and found Yamada sitting on a chair. Dino pleaded with Yamada to make him a City Council member. When Yamada didn’t respond, Dino turned him around and saw that he was dead! Akinaga Toyomoto appeared again and revealed he was spying on Dino all along. Hideyuki Yamada isn’t the most powerful figure in Kanagawa, it is Fuji-kyun! The screen faded to black over a narration explaining that Dino was defeated by Fuji-kyun, ending his political dreams. The end.
