“- The only emotion Shinki knows is rejection.

– But then, didn’t you feel lonely?

– Why?! Shinki has me. She was isolated, but she wasn’t alone. Kokutou, have you ever wanted to kill someone?

– So far, no.

– I see. But that’s the only emotion I have. I’m the personality that’s in charge of Shiki’s suppressed thoughts. So I’ve constantly killed my will. I’ve been killing the darkness that is myself. I’ve killed myself over and over… So, the only emotion I’ve experienced is murder.”

– Kara no Kyokai.
