|Summary part 1:|
The stop motion theatre thing at the beginning has some strange guy who uses his boundary field powers to cut off Arcueid's cell phone instead of Shiki doing anything this time...
The intro just shows this orange-haired kid hanging out at Shiki's house for some reason... and then it cuts back to a flashback showing this kid seeing some crazy demonic stuff going on with the people he lives with... I think I remember this from the book, that guy's parents keep dying and coming back to life, and this kid gets so freaked out he ends up killing his parents himself and then running away.
Some burglar comes across some dead people in an apartment that he's trying to rob, and when he comes back with a police officer to show him, that person is alive again.
Some investigators are talking about this... the burglar's story sounded too detailed to be made up... it shows the connection between those dead people that were found alive, and their son who wasn't in the apartment, the orange haired kid Enjoe Tomoe.. later that guy gets in a fight with some guys who he owes money to or something... then Shiki comes up to save this guy for some reason..
(btw I just noticed this movie is 114 minutes instead of the usual 45-60 minutes)
Tomoe convinces this girl to let him hide out at her place...
It seems this guy has recurring nightmares about being stabbed by his mom... That's what drove him to kill his parents and run away. whenever Tomoe looks at his apartment key, he gets flashbacks of that...
Shiki still agrees to let him stay with her, even after he told her he killed somebody. she doesn't care at all... "I'm the same."
Later, she says "Mikiya won't be coming any time soon anyway." to further justify how she doesn't care about him staying with her... Tomoe says he noticed Shiki doesn't have a lock for her house, so he changed the lock for her and gave her the key...
A house without a lock... isn't a house.
It starts showing repeated scenes of the two of them living together, as if they're stuck in a time loop...
One day, Ryougi comes home and just about kills Tomoe...
I was out to kill someone. But I couldn't find the person to kill. I thought that you might do, but I couldn't. It's meaningless.
I want to feel like I'm alive. I'll eventually kill someone meaninglessly.
He asks Shiki if she has any friends. She says yes, and he suggest he go to push all her problems onto them...
He's not here now. He went far away.Then she gets mad thinking about him, and starts stabbing her bed... Tomoe says he doesn't believe that she's someone who would kill meaninglessly.
I guess they aren't in a time loop? Because the newscaster who said it was October 16th now says it's October 18th.
Suddenly Tomoe sees a strange guy dressed in a red suit and red hat, following Shinji outside... he looks at Tomoe and goes "Shhhh"... then disappears.
Tomoe tells her about this... says he's worried about her, then confesses is love to her.
Shiki considers his words... then jumps on him and asks if he loves her enough that he could die for her... he thinks about his recurring dream of being stabbed by his mom... he says yes, and then tells her about his dream...
It wasn't going to be long before that dream became reality. That's why on that night... I stabbed my mom on reflex when she opened the door.
This is where you normally would finally start to learn what was going on the beginning of the movie, just 23 minutes in.
Shiki just calls him stupid and then says she no longer wants to kill him... she asks him where his home is.. he tells her his address.
That's not what I'm asking. I'm asking where you want to go back to.
After that, Tomoe leaves Shiki and starts living on the street again... a week later, he sees his mom across the street and freaks out and goes back to Shiki... she agrees to go with him to his apartment to check out what's going on.
As they go up the building's elevator, Shiki notices that it goes up in a spiral...
When Tomoe tells her it's been 8 days since he last came to her place.. "The timing's too perfect."
Shiki asks for the key so they can go in without ringing the doorbell in order to see through the gimmick.... they go in.. and see Tomoe's parents talking about him as if he's just late getting home from work and they are still waiting for him to get home.
We didn't ring the doorbell, so they act as if there's no visitor.Then they see another copy of Tomoe come home...
This scene is... something... The mom finally loses her shit after getting treated badly by the dad... she knocks him unconscious with a pan and then stabs him to death, then goes to Tomoe's room...
Tomoe... please die...Then the mom cuts her own head off after killing her family...
Tomoe exclaims to the calm Shiki that he just died, pointing to his copy...
He'll wake up in the morning. there wasn't even a drop of blood.
It's a cycle where they're born in the morning and die at night.
Then Shiki says they'll go to his real home next... She explains how she noticed something strange about this building, and that the numbers must've been switched around, so his real home is in 410, not 405.
Everything began when that elevator was activated. It's all a gimmick to reverse everything. The loud sound serves as a distraction, so the people riding on the elevator won't realize they've been rotated 180 degrees. The stairs in here go in a spiral, right? The stairs must be displaced to match the elevator.He says that they'd notice if the exit were on the opposite side of where it was normally, but she explains that the scenery around the building is full of similar looking rectangular apartment buildings, so they wouldn't notice.
You're surrounded by walls inside and strange patterns are inscribed all over the place, adding to your mental stress. It's a barrier. There aren't any small abnormalities. So you don't notice the large abnormality.
They get to 410...
To be accurate, this is the place you stayed in from when you moved in up until the elevator started working a month later.
They go into this apartment, and they see the corpse that the burglar saw at the beginning. Ryougi says it's been about half a year since their deaths... she sees someone come up behind Tomoe about to kill him, and saves him at the last second.
They aren't human. They're just puppets that want to die.Now there's a scene where she kills a bunch of zombie people.. After that, the mage who created this barrier shows up... she can't see any lines on him.
I know you.
Yes, it's been about two years since we last met. Magus, Araya Souren. The one to kill Shiki.
I think the scene they're talking about here is something that has yet to be shown until a later movie?
She asks why he enjoys repetition so much... explains to Tomoe that this complex repeats the last day of all its residents.
They're born in the morning and die in the night. This side is the storage for their corpses, and that other side is where their daily lives occur. I don't know what kind of sorcery he's using though.
I've made a world that concludes in a day. I was curious to see if humans could reach a different death. I believe that a deviation will occur in the spiral if I repeat the same death thousands of times.
I see. So Enjou isn't the only one repeating death. That won't be enough for an experiment.
They were people who had everything destroyed. Within a mere month, everyone killed each other and died.
It's because of this apartment complex you set up. You pushed them into doing it. Then you shifted all the residents into puppets... Why do you want to kill me?
He mentions the names of two other supernatural characters from previous movies, then explains why he's now after Shiki...
Fujyou Kirie and Asagami Fujino were not effective. Being close to death, she chose death while you chose life. Putting an end to lives, she enjoyed murder while you respected killing. You should've realized... They're similar to you, yet at the same time, they're murderers who conflict with Ryougi Shiki. They were sacrifices who were prepared just for you. Enjoe Tomoe was a fortunate find. He made things easy for me.Then they start fighting...
Ryougi Shiki. Nothingness is your chaotic impulse and your origin. See that darkness, and recall your name.
You are inexperienced. Sarira are embedded in my left hand. Not even Mystic Eyes of Death Perception would be able to see the parts prone to death.
Shiki manages to cut through his barriers and do some damage to him, and even stabs him in the next... but he uses some weird blood bending magic to through her out the window... then heals himself like it's nothing.
My origin is stillness. You can't kill the time of over two hundred years that I've been alive.</spoiler>
