Putting it shortly, the villian this time is whom I consider Shiki’s deadliest opponent yet, the maddened killer Shirazumi Lio. He was responsible for the spate of killings in 1996, and returns to reprise that role in 1999.
Lio was one of Souren’s 3 experiments, the other 2 being Fujyou Kirie and Asagami Fujino. Lio is considered by Souren to be his only “failed” experiment aside from Kyrie and Fujino. The power Souren evoked within him is called “eating”, he literally devours people after they fall victim to him, or so I’ve heard. He has immense agility and speed and the ability to scale walls like a spider.
This is somewhat related to movie 2 as from what I can gather. Apparently Lio was the real killer in movie 2 as his attire is VERY similar to Shiki’s aside from his hair color, which is blonde. This is the reason Shiki was suspected as the killer back in 1996.
The reason he’s so obsessed with Shiki (and this forms the basis for the encounter in movie 7) is because he views her as the only person like him, and thus capable of understanding him. That turns out to be flawed because Shiki is nowhere near as insane as he is.
The very reason he turns out to be a very fragile, weak villain is because he’s conflicted and self-serving. He wants to seek out those like him, yet he wants to be special, he only thought about his own safety despite all his killing sprees and at the end of it, Araya saw this nature of his, and deemed him a failure.
He was also Mikiya’s senior in high school, oddly enough. (Mikiya attracts the mad killers, not Shiki, I swear)
HEAVEN VS. HELL
ROUND 1, NO CONTINUES
I’ll add more to the synposis later. Got to go now.
