Mondo and Ishimaru didn't get along when first meet, firstly because of Mondo being disrespectful with rules and with Monokuma too. They used to fight sometimes, but then both made a sauna's competition, in where both talked about themselves with Makoto being the one who was watching them right outside. The next day after the sauna, they both were seen acting friendly to each other with finally saying that both were best friends and bros at the same time. After Mondo's crimes were revealed, as he killed Chihiro Fujisaki, Ishimaru was crying while begging to Monokuma to give him more time, but he didn't listen and as Mondo was being dragged to his execution Ishimaru is shown crying while the others were contemplating it on horror, but in Ishimaru's case he just couldn't believe that his supposed first friend had died.
Taka then started to change by chapter 3, when Aoi Asahina found out Alter Ego, they showed Taka a Mondo's AI representation, as the artificial Mondo gave him some advice, and that he wouldn't be a man if he continued cried because of his death, Ishimaru changes his appearance, while introducing as "himself", as he seemed touched by the Mondo's representation showed by Chihiro's Alter Ego.
