Rigel is at the beginning of the story on the Akame Mountain with a one-year training session together with Orion, Sirius, Andy and Bon. Yamabiko arrives from Shikoku, when Rigel is calling to Orion, and adult friends meet for the first time in half a year.

Later, Akame is running to announce that Monsoon's under attack have invaded Ōu. Rigel leaves immediately with the forces. They are waiting for Yamabi troops in the Kyoto Mountains, but after two days Orion decides to leave Ōu and asks Rigel to stay. Rigel initially claims to believe that someone else is better suited to the task and wants to be involved in helping the Futago. After all, Sasuke agrees to the task and others leave for the trip.

The forces of Orion and Yamabiko will later unite and arrive at Nagano's Unsail. The United Dog Army then goes to Ōua.

When the forces stop at Kunim, Unsa sets four intelligence units on all the main air routes in the Futago slope. Rigel is part of the second group leaving the East, including Sirius and Kawasemi.

At night, Tsuyoshi runs by chance to the group and says he is looking for Akame. Tsuyoshi first thinks of Sirius as Weed, but Kawasemi corrects the misunderstanding. Tsuyoshi then asks Akame where other dogs explain the situation to him.
