Why does Koike kill herself?

Koike, who was emotionally damaged was unable to express her feelings towards Yu, another "original sinner" to whom she was attracted. To shake him from his faith and bring him close to her, she attempted to convert him and his father to the Zero Church by introducing Yoko to Yu, through Kaori.

Koike underestimates Yu's love for his "Maria" however, and finds that Yu is unremittingly in love with Yoko. Koike draws Yoko away from Yu by claiming to be the real Sasori, but finds that Yu's love is unbreakable and isolates him from his family. Even after his family is converted, Koike desires Yu the most, to do which she sends him to Bukkake-sha, hoping to shame him into joining them. Yu however continues to seek Yoko by any means necessary, even if Yoko resists him.

Finally, towards the end, Koike sees that Yu attempts a suicide attack to rescue Yoko by any means necessary. Unable to express her love or stop Yu, she finally takes solace in the fact that she ended up breaking Yu's mind and causing to smash into a million pieces, much like her's was. Knowing that he is now on the same level as her, and out of her reach forever, she ends up killing herself.
