Author's Note

Vigilantes is a story about not wanting to grow up and postponing social responsibility, so one necessary element concerns the death of one's dreams. That's something that's hard to talk about in the main series, so it's the perfect theme for the spin-off.

—Hideyuki Furuhashi

The really explosive developments begin in this volume, and while you readers may be shocked by what happens, keep in mind that I'm the very first person to go "Huhh!?" and "Oh god!" (not out loud, but inside) while drawing these scenes.

—Betten Court
