|Summary part 2:|
Toko seems to be doing her own investigating... she talks to (Kokuto's dad I think?) about the theory that this is the same person from 4 years ago... they both agree that these murders are very similar.
Then she gets philosophical thinking to herself.. about how these murders have gone closer to the business district and have cast a shadow over the city...
I don't know what you're looking for, but you can't illuminate your heart by yourself, Shiki.
There's a scene of Shiki walking around in her old Kimono, saying that classic line about why she likes walking at night... Then it goes to Shiki wearing the red coat... Suddenly she finds someone dressed just like her, a blonde guy... They seem to know each other... He's convulsing really weirdly, like his body isn't human...
She manages to defeat him, and he complains that she isn't finishing the job... She's much different from 4 years ago. he explains that he left all those corpses that way so that she'd know it was him... He seems to know EVERYTHING about Shiki, including her origin and the fact that she is suppressing it..
Shiki just says she has no interest in him, she just wanted to confirm.. he gets mad... he threatens to kill "the reason for her to go back"...
Shiki slices his arm off, saying... "Kill who?"... That just makes him angrier.. he manages to get away, saying he'll definitely kill that person.
Kokuto breaks into the apartment of this killer... He has pictures of Shiki all over his wall, and a journal that reads a lot like what Kokuto was saying at the end of movie 2.
April 1995, I met her....
Why didn't anyone tell me the simple reality? That killing someone meant killing yourself too.
I realized that I need someone just like me, a lunatic.
Kokuto is just calmly sitting there when the killer walks in and greets him.. they seem to know each other too... apparently this guy is connected to that Araya apartment complex he investigated?
Oh wait... is this guy, Lio Shirazumi, actually the guy that warned Kokuto about Shiki in movie 2? I almost forgot about that... Kokuto implies that he is resuming the crimes from 4 years ago... but this guy says he wasn't the serial killer then.
That was Ryougi Shiki's...
You're lying, Shirazumi.
Lio explains that a devil named Araya awoke him to his origin of consumption... he is not killing because he wants to, only because he needs to... he keeps saying he wants to kill Kokuto, the only thing separating him and Shiki... but Kokuto manages to keep him under control the same way he did Shiki back then..
Later, Shiki calls Kokuto, telling him that's dangerous to go out and he should stay put. and she gets mad when he tells her he met Shirazumi... Shiki wants to kill him, but Kokuto thinks he can still be saved and it's wrong to kill somebody no matter how many people they've killed...
Kokuto asks Toko about what an "origin" is... she says something about following the string of reincarnations back to the source...
But life doesn't exist at that place. The only thing there is the starting factor. It's only a direction that determines things. This chaotic impulse is what magi call origin.
Oh yeah... this scene from an earlier movie, where Araya awakens that man-eating killer to his origin... that's Lio Shirazumi.
Shiki finds Lio again and starts fighting him, but can't commit to killing him because Kokuto's words keep popping in her head... she gets captured by Lio, not killed, and has a dream about her memories of when SHIKI killed herself to save Kokuto.
To protect his dream of living happily... Mikiya Kokuto, the form of a dream that SHIKI liked. It was the first emotion besides murder for SHIKI, who only knew of murder. He did it so he could keep dreaming. So at the very least, I want him to remember SHIKI. I'm the dream SHIKI is watching.</spoiler>
