In their apartment, Celty shows Shinra the knife that Niekawa had used to attack Anri. Shinra tells Celty about the demon blade Saika's desire to love humanity. In Anri's apartment, Haruna tells Anri about her love for Takashi Nasujima. Shinra explains to Celty that Saika uses its human host to slash its victims and spread its feelings of love through people. Haruna tells Anri that while her love for Nasujima allows her to forgive him if he shows feelings to someone else, she'd never be able forgive the other woman. She explains that she had sent others, including her father, to attack Anri, and each attempt had failed. Her eyes begin to glow red as she reveals she has come to do the job herself.

Celty and Shinra realize that Saika has been spreading. Over the city, slashing victims with glowing red eyes are shown slashing others.

In Anri's apartment, Haruna is prepared to kill her when the doorbell rings. Haruna goes to answer it, promising to kill whoever is at the door before killing Anri.

Izaya walks outside, preparing for a fight. Shizuo pulls a guardrail out of the ground, but Celty shows up, stopping their fight. She shows Shizuo the recent chat room messages from Saika, and he immediately rides off with her.

Haruna opens Anri's door to find Nasujima. He is shocked to see her and runs away. She follows, promising to have "everyone else" kill Anri instead. A group of people with glowing red eyes and carrying knives begin to file inside Anri's apartment while she backs into a corner.

Shizuo and Celty arrive in South Ikebukuro Park. Countless numbers of people with glowing red eyes and carrying blades - ranging from axes to butterfly knives to scissors - move toward them. Anri's three bullies stand ahead of the others. They explain their desire for Shizuo's strength, promising that they love him. He laughs, and though Celty is alarmed, Shizuo is glad for the chance to use his strength to its extent. He tells Saika's Army that he hates them as he runs toward them, prepared for a fight.

In another part of town, Haruna has Nasujima cornered and is preparing to cut him to show her love. Anri runs up behind her to stop her. Haruna is annoyed that Anri is still alive. She explains her and Saika's desire to cut and love the entire human race. Haruna attempts to slash her, but Anri stops Haruna's knife with her arm. As Anri explains that she is too afraid to love since her parents' murder five years prior, and so leeches off of others, she pulls a full-length katana - the real Saika - from her arm.
