In 1986, Yuri is ordered by Shima to protect a beautiful violinist named Hitomi Miyazawa that may be targeted by a mysterious Fangire that is attacking female violinists. Hitomi happens to be a student under Otoya Kurenai, learning that he is a master violinist who quit his profession for reasons unknown. After her concert performance, Hitomi disappears and Yuri attempts to find her, but when she does, Hitomi is revealed to be the Fangire responsible for killing her ‘competition’ as Otoya arrives. When Yuri damages her violin, Hitomi reveals her true form as the Octopus Fangire and attacks Yuri before escaping with her broken violin. Otoya, after taking Yuri’s weapon in a fake-wooing, confronts his ex-student soon after for her disrespect of the musical arts before she escapes him as well.
In 2008, after countering Megumi’s attempt on his life and walking away from her, Wataru returns home and fails to create the ultimate violin varnish, again, until Shizuka Nomura presents him with a violin that needs to be repaired. After reporting to Shima of Kiva’s appearance and given orders not to tell “him” of the encounter, Megumi encounters Wataru again as he and Shizuka are looking for suitable wood to repair the violin. After getting Kido’s permission, Wataru uses a table in the café to use as wood to finish the repairs and gives the violin back to its owner: Hitomi, who resumes her feeding starting with Megumi for her mother’s acts against her in the past. After being alerted by his father’s violin, the Bloody Rose, Kiva arrives and fights the Octopus Fangire. In the ensuing battle, the Fangire’s violin is completely destroyed.
