Then, he is treated by Daisuke for his injures along with his father and the others Hidetoshi couldn't take in. With his wounds healed, he and the other injured dogs regroup and are joined by Gin, who left Daisuke's care to check on them. Feeling defeated over their losses, the army spend their days and nights cuddled together for comfort before Andy, Yamabiko, Bon and Orion leave to find Sirius.
When morning comes Harutora hears Kyoshiro chew Orion out for sending his friends away. Having enough of Orion's attitude Kyoshiro decides to give Orion a thrashing and Gin gives the okay. Then, watches Kyoshiro challenge Orion to a fight even though the kishu lost. He saw Orion crying in tears saying that he stayed behind for the sake of everyone because the Ohu Army needs a true leader.
After Orion's returning visit from Akame and the others, he hears that everyone is doing well. Harutora goes with everyone to search for the lost sickle but after days of searching it's no where to be found. With Kyoshiro thinking that Orion isn't leader material anymore they all choose Cross to be the new boss with Kuro agreeing and when Orion returns. He hears Orion say that he is going to learn some new secret ninja techniques he picked up from Akame. Believing in the young pup he follows the others to watch Orion.
Seeing the young pup's skills Harutora and the others want to try too but when kai ken takes a swing but he doesn't do the same as Orion. He hears from Orion what he learned in a day took Akame two years to learn as the training continues he becomes impressed with Orion's progressed and gets encouraged to keep training. Then, he hears that Rigel and Rocket have returned but bring a bear cub and charges at it with the others when Kyoshiro goes to attack the cub he becomes astonished that Rigel flipped the kishu over with ease after Rigel explains everything the kai ken becomes surprised that Sirius wants them to raise Chibi until he becomes an adult.
Harutora watches Rigel and Rocket convince Orion not to kill Chibi. Then, when his father hears Orion talk disrespectfully towards his comrades and calls the pup a brat with his father reminding if he wants to be a good solider he needs to watch what he says. When he hears that Orion is trying to protect him and everyone in Ohu Kage hears his father say that he doesn't need protecting from Orion. He also sees Orion pointing his bamboo stick at his father convincing the pup to attack him but is stopped by Jerome and watches in horror as Orion almost attacks the shepard. He watches Kyoshiro give Orion a beat crying in tears but soon the tears turn into laughter as everyone runs back up the hill.
