In the Program
When Kazushi first leaves the school, he sees Mayumi Tendo's corpse and Yoshio Akamatsu's unconscious form. He picks up Yoshio's bowgun (better than his own weapon a coat hanger), and when Yoshio wakes up and attacks him, Kazushi shoots and kills Yoshio with it. Taking both the bowgun and Mayumi's daypack, Kazushi disappears into the woods. Later on, Kazushi comes across Takako Chigusa, and asks her to join him. He also propositions her, saying that they are both going to die in the program, so they should have sex once beforehand.When Takako refuses his request, and insults his penis, Niida then points the bow gun he obtained from Yoshio Akamatsu and points at her head saying that he can force himself on her and he will, Takako then tells him to try it and and by accident Kazushi's arrow grazes the side of her face. Niida then ask if she's okay. Takako then touche's her scare, then looks at the blood on her fingers and says "you have scarred my face" and becomes inragley infuriated. Niida then claims that it was her fault and that he made her do it. Takako then says she hates him is that he is always blaiming everybody else and never taking his own reponsibility, which is the reason why she hates his guts. When Takako then pulls out her jack knife, Niida then runs toward the forest,up a small hill, and away from her, but she manages to catch up and gashe's his back with her switch blade. He and Chigusa then fall to the ground, he desperate hope, he tries to pull the weapon away from her, then roll down a the small hill. He then let's go of the blade and tries to run away again. Chigusa then grabs his Survival bag, that he carried on his back, jumps on his back on stabs him. He then tells her to get off and they both fall to the ground. She then gets ontop of him and stabs him twice in the groin. He then pushes her off. She then stabs him twice in his stomach, resulting in his death.
