|Summary part 3:|
Kokuto has joined up with Tomoe and told him about what he found out in his investigation... He takes Tomoe to his real home, a house, and he starts to remember his life before he moved into that building. How his dad was a bad driver who killed someone, and their family got bullied out of any place they moved to because of that... Kokuto manages to get him out of his depression so he can help him with his plan to rescue Shiki from the 10th floor of the building... Also Tomoe gives the key to Kokuto...
She doesn't need me. A person like you suits people like me and her.
Alba shows up in front of Kokuto caring Toko's living head.. and crushes it in front of him.. then he starts beating up Kokuto while screaming at Aozaki, about some petty rivalry they had at the academy...
Meanwhile, Tomoe goes to see his own corpse, and confirms that he is an artificial puppet created by Araya..
Another Toko suddenly shows up to fight Alba... saying she's her replacement.
A few years ago, I created a puppet that was exactly like myself.
Toko kills Alba and saves Kokuto, while Tomoe tries to stab Araya and it doesn't do anything... Araya comes down to fight Toko... but this Toko knows she stands no chance against him inside his own building.
Araya. The original purpose of this apartment complex is to represent the Taiji in order to take the Taiji, right?
Correct. I created this alien world to completely shut off Ryougi Shiki from the outside world.
Toko just starts laughing... saying he made a terrible mistake.
You threw Shiki into a barrier by secluding her from space. That's certainly perfect. But something like that is useless against her. We're a threat against common sense, but Shiki is the Death for the uncommon. Araya Souren, if you wanted to confine Shiki, you should've trapped her in a box made of concrete. She can easily cut through a barrier that closes her off from space.
Now it shows some hyper trippy sequence where Shiki goes through all her own memories in the Akashic records... then she finally wakes up and starts cutting up Araya's body/building/barrier with the sword she took from Mikiya.
I see. Self suggestion. You can change yourself by holding a weapon. I have been deceived. You weren't fighting with your full potential against Asagami Fujino.
An amazing battle scene... Araya is now collapsed on the ground... he explains his reasoning for what he did... the fact that he can't save everyone.
But if I can open the origin and end the world... If I can record and observe all deaths until the end of the world... If I can observe the ones who aren't recompensed for, who aren't saved, from the very start... The ones who died meaninglessly would obtain a meaning.
I'm nobody. I just want a conclusion. These ugly, filthy, ignorant humans. If that's all that'll be left in history after they die off, I would be relieved to know that the value of humans is in their ugliness.
You lost against only one person, Tomoe's love for his family. Let me tell you something interesting. There's this thing called the group unconscious that a famous psychologist defined. It's a way of thinking that the pool deep inside everybody's mind is the same. It's the storage of all the selfishness in this world. In Buddhism, they call this Arayashiki.
She asks Araya if he's going to start again... he replies "I didn't create any spare bodies."
Araya, what do you seek?
Araya, where do you seek it?
Only within myself.
Araya, where are you trying to reach?
That's obvious. To the end of this paradox spiral of a world.
After the credits... Kokuto lets himself into Shiki's place at night with they key... Shiki gets mad... then shyly asks him for the key to his place...
