|Shonan Junai Gumi: VOLUME 3|
|Chapter 18: "The Transfer Student" Ryuji wakes up from a nightmare in which he and Eikichi are in their old age and are still virgins. He tells Eikichi about the dream and they both turn to Makoto, who shows them a photo of all the first year girls in their school. As they browse through the photo, they notice a guy dumping a pretty looking girl and immediately hooking up with another one. The Oni-baku watches on with jealousy. At school, the class is introduced to a new transfer student, Abe Hiroshi. Ryuji takes an immediate dislike towards him but Eikichi recognises him as the womaniser from before and convinces Ryuji to use him to teach them how to court girls. On the school rooftop, the Oni-baku begs Abe to introduce them some girls. Abe brags about the 158 he's been with and declares he will never give them to idiots. However, he says that he will teach the Oni-baku a thing or two about flirting. In the hallway, Abe shows off his flirting skills and gets the hottest girl in the second grade within five minutes. Later in class, with the girl all over him, Abe explains to the Oni-baku that there are three things to being a popular guy. |
|Chapter 19: "The Three Rules" Abe continues to explain the three things. Firstly, have coolness and charm, demonstrated by wearing expensive clothes. Two is playing offence. As for number three, Abe tells the Oni-baku to figure it out for themselves and leaves. The duo wanders the streets and ponders upon what the third thing could be. They decide to firstly start dressing like him, but are disheartened at the cost. They realise they need to know what the third thing is and beg Abe to tell them. They are interrupted by a group of twenty seniors, who want revenge on Abe for beating two of them up earlier. Abe tells the Oni-baku if they can beat the seniors up within five minutes, he'll reveal to them the third thing. Abe walks off, thinking he had tricked the Oni-baku. He turns around and is surprised to see that the Oni-baku had already beaten up the seniors. He tells them a fake story about a magical necklace given to him by goddess, in which the gullible duo believes. He then goes on to tell them he was joking but is shocked to see the two fighting over the necklace and realises that they are idiots. Scared by them, he tells the Oni-baku to meet him at the Seaside Coffee Shop at 5AM the following morning and he will truthfully tell them the third thing. The Oni-baku waits at the cafe the following morning and are shocked to see Abe, on a bike stacked with newspapers, doing paper rounds. The Oni-baku realise that the third thing is endurance, something that they can never do. |
Ryuji & Eikichi
Chapter 20: "Let's Hit the Valentine's Parade!" At school, Makoto tells the Oni-baku about the Valentine's Day Parade, an annual event in which the winner can get as much girls as they want. Later, he shows the Oni-baku and Tsukai last year's winner next to his Porsche surrounded by girls. Abe overhears the conversation and declares that he too will enter the competition, much to the Oni-baku's annoyance. Later, the Oni-baku wanders the streets and ponders upon where they can obtain a car. They see a car left unattended and steals it. They go to their mechanic friend, Masami Sato, for a modification, who tells them that they will never win with a Nissan Cedric 430. He tells them that they need a newer car and shows them another customer's new Z model. The customer comes to collect it and turns out to be Abe. He mocks them and drives off. While flipping desperately through a car magazine, they come across a Koenig Benz 500SL and request Sato to convert their Cedric into the Koenig, who thinks that it is impossible. On the day of the parade, the Oni-baku come to pick up their car and is surprised to see a perfect Koenig. They perform their own extra modifications and happily drive off. In another room, Sato admires his work on the Cedric, saying he didn't do such a bad job. He walks into the next room and discovers that his customer's Koenig is missing. He panics when he realises that the customer is picking it up today. At the parade, the crowd cheers as the Oni-baku drive up in their done up Koenig.
|Chapter 21: "Driven to the End!" As the crowd cheers for Abe's cool new Z, Makoto arrives in a cute animal themed car and impresses the crowd better than Abe. However, the Oni-baku's Koenig commands the crowd's total attention when they arrive, leaving Abe and Makoto stunned. Back at the garage, the customer, Takashi Yokokawa, angrily demands the whereabouts of his 20 million yen car and threatens to take Sato's arms. One of Yokokawa's men rush in to inform him that he saw a car resembling his Koenig but completely modified, which petrifies Sato. As the Oni-baku are declared to be this year's parade winner, girls begin to line up to ride in their Koenig. They pick two pretty girls to take a ride with them. Elsewhere, Sato is taken hostage by Yokokawa as he drives around searching for his missing Koenig. Back in the Koenig, Eikichi asks the girls, Yuna and Miki, if they have ever been in a Benz before. Miki says that her boyfriend owns one but she wants to break up with him. She asks Eikichi to take her away from her boyfriend, who happily agrees. They are interrupted by a call on the car phone, who turns out to be Sato. He informs them that they have stolen a real Koenig that belongs to a Yakuza boss. As they panic, Miki reveals that her boyfriend is Yokokawa and dumps him over the phone. |
Yokokawa & the Oni-baku
Chapter 22: "No Escape From the Yakuza" The Oni-baku are chased by Yokokawa's men. As they drive faster, Miki reveals Yokokawa's ruthlessness, which terrifies Eikichi. The Oni-baku try throw off their pursuers by throwing things at them. In the frenzy, Eikichi realises that he has pulled the steering wheel off and they crash near a demolition yard. As they climb out of the wreckage, the Oni-baku are confronted by Yokokawa and his men. As they plead for mercy and insist that they will repair the car, the Koenig gets crushed into a cube before their eyes. They then promise to come up with a new Koenig within fifteen minutes. Fifteen minutes later, they display a toy model of a Koenig, angering the mob and they get beaten up. As Yokokawa grabs Miki and drags her away, the Oni-baku fight back and Eikichi stands up against Yokokawa. Miki reveals to Eikichi that Yokokawa is only seventeen years old and still a high school student as Yokokawa and his men start praying for his cubed Benz. He then declares that the Oni-baku won't be leaving alive.
|Chapter 23: "Time Limit" Yokokawa and his men cement the Oni-baku in barrels, with the aim of drowning them in the river. As Yokokawa lunges towards Eikichi with a knife, the Oni-baku begs and says that they will do anything. Yokokawa tells them he will let them go if they can come up with 50 million yen in one day. As the gang leaves, a persistent Miki tells Yokokawa that she rather be with Eikichi and she is confident that they will have the money by tomorrow. An angry Yokokawa demands 100 million yen. Eikichi taunts on how easy it would be to get the money. As the gang leaves, a terrified Eikichi reveals to Ryuji his bluff. Later, the Oni-baku put on disguises and attempts to escape the city on a train. However, they realise that the whole carriage is filled with Yokokawa's men. They soon discover that the whole city is filled with Yokokawa's men. Realising that there is no escape, they give up on escaping and ponder on what to do. They meet Abe, who comes up with a plan. One of them has to die for the other to receive the insurance money of 100 million yen. They get into a fight on who should die. Later at home, the Oni-baku go through their photos from junior high. They both apologise to each other for earlier. They suddenly turn silent and Abe asks them what's going on. They declare that they have found their 100 million yen. |
Chapter 24: "Raid!!" As Miki watches the clock, Yokokawa tells her that Eikichi isn't coming for her. As he prepares to hunt down the Oni-baku, a car crashes into the room. The Oni-baku gets out and says that they have the money. Yokokawa's men attack the Oni-baku, who retaliate with ease. After knocking out the whole gang, the Oni-baku proceeds to give Yokokawa the money. An angry Yokokawa challenges them to a fight and declares that he will go after their families. The Oni-baku reveal to Yokokawa that he was their sempai in junior high. Yokokawa puts on his glasses and recognises them as the two who made his life a living hell in junior high. He threatens them further and then is shown an embarrassing photo of himself passing faeces in public. He begs them not to show that picture to the public and agrees to buy it for 100 million yen. The Oni-baku agrees to sell it to him on one condition – to take another photo of him doing the same thing. Walking down the street, Miki and the Oni-baku laugh at their new photo. Miki thanks Eikichi and kisses him, shocking Ryuji. Miki invites Eikichi to her apartment, who apologises to Ryuji for losing his virginity before him. Miki introduces a surprised Eikichi as a new father to her triplet sons, who all resemble Yokokawa. A terrified Eikichi runs off and never returns.

Makoto and Abe congratulate the Oni-baku for their feat. They are watched by two guys who are infuriated at Abe's betrayal towards them. One of the guys, Misaki, expresses his hatred towards the Oni-baku and wishes that a certain two guys would come back to school. In class, the Oni-baku and Makoto joke about Misaki and that they can take him down any day. A girl named Yui Itou overhears them and informs the Oni-baku that they need to defeat a certain pair first. They are interrupted by Mariko, who calls the Oni-baku into the teacher's staff room. There, she expresses her worry about their new fame and informs them that two students who were previously suspended will be returning to school – Toshiyuki Saejima and Jun Kamata, known as the Mad Dogs of Kamakura. She warns the Oni-baku not to mess with them. In the hallway, Makoto gets pushed around by two guys and confidently states they should be careful as he is in league with the Oni-baku. He begins to tell them that the Oni-baku can take on Saejima and Kamata when he is interrupted by Saejima, who has finally returned. Saejima questions the Oni-baku's strength and is intrigued by them. Elsewhere, Abe informs the Oni-baku about Saejima and Kamata's brutality and goes off to meet his date. They are interrupted by a bleeding and beaten up Makoto who informs them that the Mad Dogs of Kamakura are out to get them.

The Oni-baku and Tsukai visit Abe at the hospital and are surprised to find him having sex with his nurse. Abe warns them of Kamata's strength.
