Most Evil Death Row Convicts Saga
He is attacked by Spec, who forces a meat bun down his throat.
He goes to America to recruit Oliva to help with the remaining death row convicts.
After Ryuukou Yanagi escapes, he goes to check up on the other escapees to see if they are up to anything. After he visits them, he comes to the conclusion that something similar to when they escaped separately at the same time will happen again.
Sonoda is a high ranking official of the police force and has command of all cops below him. It is also confirmed that he can use judo and is probably quite good (for a normal person) but doesn't stand a chance against Spec or any other well known fighters.
