Hei’s workforce, on the orders of Eric Nishijima, has been kicked out of the syndicate and contracts taken on all their lives. Misaki discovers that the “syndicate” can be a collaboration between intelligence businesses of a number of nations and that she herself has been an unknowing member. Hei, Yin, and Mao infilitrate Hell’s Gate whereas Huang detonates a suicide bomb for distraction. Mao is disconnected from the Syndicate’s community and his feral cat conduct takes over and runs away. The EPR’s contractors assault the gate, leaving the main target open for Hei and Yin. The syndicate takes out the EPR’s doll system, leaving Hei with solely Yin for steering as they head in the direction of the conclusion of the story.
