When the young Cross-Eyes girl fell asleep, Nikaido spot Kaiman sat in the back of the room looking at the garden, believing she is looking at his true human face, but quickly realizes this is just a illusion as teh lizard head ask her to drink with him.
She ask him about his sudden change since he went to the school, after Kaiman apologized for worry her, she ask if he is going to stay as a Cross-Eye with Natsuki, he quickly dismiss that, telling his intention to return to Hole, and out of the blue Nikaido asked if, once his face and memories return, could help her with the restaurant. This surprised the lizard head, even asking if she was ok with someone like him, as she kindly acepted him for what he is, she also mentioned her business will go to ruin if he stayed as a customer, breaking the mood and making Kaiman happy again.

Main Characters Edit
Minor Characters Edit
- We finally see all the top Officers using their masks:
- Ushishimada using a cow shaped mask,
- Ton a pig mask,
- Dokuga a moth mask,
- Tetsujo is ronin helmet
- But we cannot see Saji's mask, barely visible as a rounded shape with an string holding it, it most probably because he is the only one with no evident representations or features in his overall character...meaning is is quite plain in personality and appearance.
- Natsuki, while talking about be The Boss woman, also joked about be Kaiman's woman too
- Seems like Dokuga actually felt something in Kaiman that sounds familiar, even tho he dismissed this quickly.
- This is indeed the last time Nikaido spoke to Kaiman, or at leas "This" Kaiman.
- This is the chapter with more preludes to important changes in the plot to date
