Kureo Mado’s funeral takes place at the Commission of Counter Ghoul Headquarters of the 1st ward. Itsuki Marude berates Mado, saying that he was merely a quinque fanatic, but Kishou Arima reprimands him for disrespecting the dead. Taishi Fura suddenly alerts them that a ghoul suspect has started moving, and that they should move out right away, indicating that there is no time to mourn.
Koutarou Amon has a flashback of when he first met Mado; most people have said that he was a maniac for quinques, and a very odd old man. He first sets eyes on Mado, and noted that his sunken cheeks reminded him of a dead man. On their first assignment, Amon and Mado go to visit Kie Muramatsu, an old-aged female ghoul. According to a medical certificate, Mado quickly distinguished whether or not Muramatsu was a ghoul. After it turned out that she may not have been once, Mado apologizes for suspecting her. When they left, Mado suggested that they set a trap for Muramatsu, for he still suspected her, Amon doubted this, but Mado implied that he was merely inexperienced.
Amon storms away, and upon walking on his way to the Stakeout, he meets Muramatsu, pushing some really heavy luggage. He notices blood seeping out of the suitcase afterwards, and when he confronts her, she attacks him. Mado unexpectedly intervenes, defeating Muramatsu and suggests that she be made into a quinque.
Yukinori Shinohara approaches Amon and teases him about weeping over Mado’s death, but mentioned that Mado was also proud of him.
