Friends and EnemiesEdit
In the ProgramEdit
Tatsumichi walks around the island, slowly going insane at the thought of his classmates attacking him and shortly before six am, he finds Shuya Nanahara and Noriko Nakagawa playing with a kitten. He hides in a nearby bush and then swings his machete at them.
Shuya notices this at the last minute and blocks the swing with his bag, which rips in half. Shuya discovers that it is Tatsumichi and explains that he is not playing and just to get Tatsumichi on his side. Tatsumichi replies that he is so glad Shuya's weapon is no match for his and resumes his attack. He gets a small cut on Shuya's hand but when he goes for another swing, Shuya tackles him off a small cliff and then the machete lands right in the middle of Tatsumichi's face.
