A new morning begins at the Higashikata's. Josuke wakes up and goes to prepare himself in the bathroom, in which he meets Hato and Joshu. Starting to grow a stubble, he borrows Joshu's razor and shaves using Soft & Wet's bubbles; Hato and Joshu's faces end up being covered in his hair as a result. Josuke then eats breakfast, during which Norisuke IV is confused to see Josuke not obeying Daiya's orders.
A flashback details the investigation Josuke conducted in the office upstairs. Consulting the Steel Ball Run Complete Record by First Generation Norisuke Higashikata, which is a revised version dating from 1989, Josuke reads about the Steel Ball Run race, its results, but more importantly, reads about the Higashikata family tree. Josuke notices the existence of a minor branch of the Higashikata family which began with the marriage between Johnny Joestar and Rina Higashikata, and ends with Yoshikage Kira and his mother Holy Joestar-Kira. Josuke then tidies up the room and decides to investigate Holy, and more generally the Higashikata family line.
