The Gesso and the Giglio Nero
Takeshi Yamamoto vs. Genkishi
Yamamoto states that he saw Genkishi on Squalo's DVD for "The Path to be the Emperor of the Sword". Genkishi reveals that he allowed himself to be defeated by Squalo to aid in the formation of the Millefiore Famiglia. At the control room, Shoichi is informed that Gamma managed to defeat Ryohei and severely wound Gokudera. Shoichi states that they can leave the rest to Genkishi.
The Cervello then inform Shoichi of a transmission from the control room. That person informs Shoichi that the spies from the Vongola base's radio transmitter have been destroyed. The commanding officer of the spies tells Shoichi that it is only a matter of time before they defeat Hibari. The person from the control room also informs Shoichi that with Spanner's report of Tsuna falling into the sewer, they were unable to discover him. He also states that they cannot make contact with Spanner. They connect a camera to Spanner's room; however, Iris and Ginger Bread have already arrived, and they report that Spanner's room is vacated. Shoichi states that if they see Spanner, they should kill him, and also says that he will report this to Byakuran.
With Spanner and Tsuna, Tsuna activates his Hyper Dying Will Mode, and his contacts activate. However, Spanner states that it would take about 20 minutes for Tsuna's eyes to adjust. With Yamamoto and Genkishi, Genkishi states that he had to humiliate himself by losing to Squalo. Genkishi then goes on to say that he had evened the odds for Yamamoto; he made artificial rain in the area for him, as well as that Genkishi would fight with his bare hands. The fight begins, and Yamamoto states that he will make Genkishi draw his sword with his Shigure Souen style. However, as Yamamoto attacks, Genkishi traps Yamamoto in an illusion and wounds him.
