When Masashige and his group of dogs find Sayoko and her pups, Kuranosuke tries to scare them away by telling them that they are the grandchildren of Kisaragi. This fails though, and he and his siblings are attacked, Kuranosuke being the only survior. He ran away, but couldn't survive from the freezing cold. He lived just long enough to tell his father it was the Kurohabaki Clan who had killed Sayako and the rest of his puppies. He died soon afterwards.

- Yoshihiro Takahashi has apparently made an error, because there are four puppies at first, but there are suddenly five later on. Either Masaru or Masami is supernumerary.
