The messages keep coming up even now on his computer, but now the names of the senders were not just Amagi and Nishikino.
Names of freelancers eliminated in the past started to mix in, and the evidence pointing to “that” asleep in the underground warehouse is included.

Izaya calls out to Ryuusei standing there in the pit of despair to make sure.
