Versus, a new manga by Tomohiro (aka ONE), the author of One Punch Man and Mob Psycho, will be released on November 26. Trusted leakers such as Shonenleaks have stated that ONE is in charge of developing the plot for the upcoming Versus series.

The chapter also indicates that Kazutora had violent inclinations, which drove him to assault and murder Shinichiro.

The chapter continued with Takemichi pleading with Mikey to cease holding the Dark Impulses within.

Takemichi reassured Manjiro that everything would be OK, so the blonde listened and let the Dark Impulses govern his body.
