In 1986, finding Ramon and Riki's massage parlor closed down for lacking the permit to operate, Jiro gets Ramon and Riki jobs at the Café mald'amour to the surprise of Otoya. The next day, Otoya provides Riki with his advice on love. While this occurs, Shinji Takeuchi saves the relationship with his wife Ryōko, and later is followed by Maya, who recognizes him as another traitor Fangire trying to live with humans. Before she can kill anyone, she encounters Otoya, whose interference allows Shinji and Ryōko to escape as she runs off to find them. When Jiro feels that Otoya is once more getting too close to Yuri, he assumes his true form and beats Otoya into unconsciousness. Garulu throws Otoya's body into a river, asserting that Yuri is his to take as his mate.

In 2008, Megumi tries to make Wataru and Mio more of a couple and convinces her photographer and agent to bring Mio onto the next photo shoot when her friend Leona cannot attend the shoot. Once there, Mio is unable to smile until she sees Wataru watching them. However, when Shinji steals a pearl necklace from the photoshoot, Wataru chases after him until he encounters the Grizzly Fangire. Kiva transforms and is unable to defeat the Fangire, even after transforming into Garulu Form. The Grizzly Fangire escapes and resumes his guise as Shinji, entering a hospital to present the pearl necklace to Ryōko, now infirmed and hooked on life support.
