Mika Harima ArcEdit
Kanazawa is an accomplice in the kidnapping of Rio Kamichika. When Morita leads Rio to the back of the van, Kanazawa drugs her with chloroform. They drive to a parking garage to deliver the kidnapped girl to the buyer. After waiting for some time, the Black Rider appears. Kanazawa confidently attacks, and Celty drives her bike wheel into his face before she rams his head into a concrete wall with her bike.
Later, Kanazawa and his group kidnap Kaztano from a building where undocumented immigrants have been living. When Kanazawa spills chloroform on himself, all three kidnappers become sleepy. Asanuma and Morita leave Kanazawa behind with Kaztano's cell phone in his pocket. When Kyouhei Kadota calls Kaztano's phone, a passing-by Izaya answers—explaining that he had been leaving Russia Sushi when he heard the phone ringing in Kanazawa's pocket and decided to answer it.
Izaya gets as far as sharing his location before he evades a large object thrown by Shizuo. Bidding Kyouhei a swift goodbye, he throws the phone on top of Kanazawa and runs away.
Kyouhei's gang later locates Kanazawa and uses his phone to call the other two kidnappers and learn their meeting location. Kanazawa wakes up around the time Kyouhei, Erika, Walker, and Saburo are celebrating their success in finding their kidnapped friend; he asks who they are, and the four sing that they are the Dollars before Saburo knocks him unconscious for a second time.
