People think I'm nothing but evil wherever I go... But the world needs a single leader who knows where to put his foot down in the right place. Tenka is the likes who will send his subordinates into the enemy camp, while he runs away free. What worth does he have? I'm sure you understand what I'm talking about. It's time to compare him to me..."
