Storyline

November 1998: A young man swears he committed a heinous crime, he looks in the news, but nobody talks about what happened, even when the police find the alleged victims ... alive and unharmed. He says that he has done it and wants the aid of Shiki. Behind this seemingly senseless event, there is a large apartment building in which is woven a very convoluted plot in which Touko's past is involved. Will Shiki and Mikiya discover the truth? Can all of them escape from the spiral? Written by Nolberto Roa

Trivia

Cornelius Alba says that Touko became a sorceress by jealous towards her own sister. Touko Aozaki is the older sister of Aoko Aozaki, the magician who gives Shiki Tohno (Played by Ken'ichi Suzumura who plays Mikiya Kokutou in the Kara no Kyoukai film saga) his glasses at the beginning of Lunar Legend Tsukihime (2003). In the game version, Aoko indicates that she stole the glasses from her older sister. In later chapters of the Kara no Kyoukai novel, Touko indicated that Shiki Ryogi had become skilled enough with her Mystic Eyes that she didn't need her glasses anymore, hinting that the glasses that Aoko gave Shiki Tohno possibly belonged to Shiki Ryogi.
