Takashi Mitsuya, aka Joker, is a founding member of the Tokyo Manji Gang and the Second Division Captain.

He is one of the oldest and most loyal companions of Mikey. He is quite a pacifist and has a caring personality because of his two younger sisters, Luna and Mana.

He is supporting the group from the very roots and inside, keeping everyone in check with a positive attitude. Even with brute strength, he doesn’t lose his temper easily but when he does, he doesn’t take a step back until he wins. Apart from this, his vice-captain is Hakkai Shiba!

Taiju Shiba is one of the major villains of the series and has a major impact on many futures. A ruthless crusader, Taiju became the 6th Division Captain of Second Generation Tokyo Manji after resigning as leader of Black Dragon.

His twisted mind has many sides. His evil knows no bounds and he possesses incredible strength.

Taiju is the eldest of the Shiba siblings. He has a younger brother Hakkai Shiba and a younger sister Yuzuha Shiba. He cares for his siblings, but unlike Mitsuya he is abusive to his siblings physically and verbally. He has no shred of empathy and mercy.

As said earlier, Taiju is the elder brother of Hakkai who is a vice-captain under Mitsuya.

When the Black Dragon arc was heading on to its climax, Mitsuya arranged a meeting with Taiju. Mitsuya realizes what Hakkai has been through and the constant abuse from his brother might have affected both Hakkai and Yuzuha in a bad way.

During the meeting, Mitsuya finds out what was holding Hakkai back and keeping him in a tough spot. When everyone thinks that Mitsuya wanted to keep Taiju away from Hakkai, Mitsuya asks Taiju to stop harming Yuzuha and Hakkai, and free Yuzuha.

To make a deal, he offered to hand Hakkai over to Black Dragons and cut all connections with Hakkai in lieu of Yuzuha’s freedom.

Taiju used Yuzuha as a money collector for his clients. Hakkai also wanted to free Yuzuha from Taiju’s clutches and he only joined Black Dragons to protect his sister.

When Taiju didn’t seem to be on board with the idea, Mitsuya offered a cease-fire treaty between Black Dragon territory and Toman territory. Taiju agreed and promised to never beat Yuzuha.

But later in the arc, Hakkai tries to kill Taiju but fails in his attempt, Yuzuha stabs Taiju from behind. Blinded in rage, Taiju then attempts to kill Yuzuha. Takemichi intervenes in this and buys some time by getting beaten by Taiju until Mitsuya arrives on the scene.

Seeing both his friend’s hurt and Taiju’s determination to kill Yuzuha, Mitsuya starts to fight Taiju. And thus, their fight began.

The fans remain anxious to see this amazing battle to be animated and we will reveal spoilers on how their fight went.
