Onishi is consequently murdered by the mob surrounding him, leaving nothing left but his texhnolyzed limbs. An enraged Ichise begins to beat the people to a bloody pump, even when his texhnolyzed limbs seem to function without the source of the obelisk. All the Shapes have rooted to the ground and permanently immobilized, including Kohakura. At an abandoned opera house, Ichise finds Kano, who has failed in his attempt to use texhnolyzation to get people to evolve out of their violent ways, and now humanity's self-preserving bloodline has returned to its roots. Kano unveils that Ran, who has been turned into one of the Shapes, turned her mind off by her own will. Ichise begins to lose control at the sight of Ran. Kano warns that if he, the only sane person left, is killed, Ichise will be left to embrace his own madness, which then leads Ichise to punch Kano's head off in response. Ichise drops Ran's remains into the pool of raffia. He leans against a column, watching a projection of a simplistic rendering of one of Ran's flowers. Eventually, he slumps over and smiles as he and the city fade away.
