The "power of adults" wielded by Kuryu Group] was far more powerful than the SWORD gangs could have imagined. After being arrested once because of the confidential information in a USB device disclosed by Kohaku, Tsukumo, and the Amamiya brothers, who had risked their lives to do so, Ryushin Kuze, the president of Kuryu Group, is immediately released due to insufficient evidence. To devastate those rebellious youths, the entire Kuryu Group unites to carry out the "SWORD Destruction Action"...

White Rascals are driven out of their precious castle club, HEAVEN, by the power of money, and both Oya Koukou (Oya High School) and the home of the Daruma Ikka are destroyed. To protect his companions, Cobra goes to challenge Kuryu Group to a fight on his own, but he is abducted and tortured. What's more, as instructed by Kuryu Group, heavy machinery enters Nameless Street, aiming to destroy the town thoroughly. Smoky senses that his family is in danger, and tells everyone to run away, but he stays there alone to face the enemy.
