|Chapters and Volumes|
Alice fights Kumo in a duel to the death on the rooftop, using her learned techniques to try and sense his location. In a split second, she manages to hit Kumo in the chest. With his last words, he responds that Bachi was never the target: he really wanted to see if Alice would be strong enough to kill him, since he had no use for this world. Alice finally musters up the courage to finish him off with a bullet through the head, then cries out in pain.
Elsewhere, a sniper plans to shoot Alice, but Bachi calls him off at the last second, planning to make her join the Organization instead.
