Part 43: Super High-school Level Update #39
Touko Fukawa is Genocider Syos true identity.
Eh, Eh, Eh, Eh, Eh...?
W...wait a second!
Isnt Fukawa-chan weak to blood? Ive never heard of a serial killer who couldnt stand the sight of blood!
The answer to your question is that... Touko Fukawa is both Genocider Syo and isnt Genocider Syo.
Are you speaking in riddles!? Stop beating about the bush, right?
It certainly sounds like a riddle... but...
I think... I know what he means...
Fukawa-san is both Genocider Syo and isnt Genocider Syo... The meaning of that is...

Youre trying to say that... Genocider Syo has multiple personalities...?
Something like that was written in that case file...
Its possible the culprit has... Dissociative Identity Disorder...
T...thats why you think Fukawa Touko-dono is...
I can say it with certainty.
We all saw it demonstrated just after we discovered the body. Her behavior suddenly changed.
A demonstration of behavior change indicating multiple personalities... That was...
She came in late / She lost consciousness / Her tone of voice changed
...Youre talking about how her tone of voice changed?
Try to remember. After seeing Fujisakis body, she fainted. And when she opened her eyes again...
Im Fine Im fine! Geeheehee..!
Oh theres a dead body here! Oy why are you being dead in a place like this!
I think she hit her head too hard, right?...
The world is composed of innings and outings! 9 innings and 9 outings, and there are also truths and lies!!
She got kind of scary... Isnt her tone of voice different...?
Youre right, her behaviour was strange! That gloomy speech she is famous for was completely gone!
Dont decide... what someone is famous for...
Furthermore, after she returned to consciousness, Fujisakis dead body didnt bother her anymore...
In short, before your very eyes, a person who cant stand the sight of blood turned into one who can.
But... what about how she locked herself in her room because she was afraid of Genocider Syo...?
Im not going to... let Genocider Syo win!!
She locked herself in her room, but not to keep other people out...
It was to keep the person inside in.
Touko Fukawa was indeed scared. She was scared the serial murderer inside her will continue killing people...
Thats right! Why do you know all of this!?
...Asahina, youre making a big mistake.
The meaning of Fukawas why is not why does he know...
It means why did he expose me?
That girl... came to me asking for strange advice yesterday evening. It was just before Monobear presented us with the latest motive...
She told me a deeply interesting story.
She said theres a serial killer hiding inside her... And that she will forever live in fear unless she finds a way to abolish it...
Thats the reason her personality turned dark and she always keeps other people at a distance. Wasnt that so?
Hes... lying, isnt he? Fukawa-chan...?
Y...you said you werent going to tell anyone...!
W...we made... a promise...! Y...y...you deceived me...!?
You just made a simple mistake. Flaunting your tragic story to someone who never asked to hear it.
...This is the real world. It isnt one of your imaginary romance novels.
Furthermore, it was you who broke our promise first. I remember what you said well...
As long as were in this place, no matter what happens, you wont let Genocider Syo kill again...
But despite that...
I... Im sorry... I... couldnt keep my promise......
B...but... dont worry... From now on... I wont......
I will not...! I will not let Genocider Syo win!!
I thought... if I keep my promise youre going to go out with me...
Thats why... I made that promise... but now...!
Thats what Im telling you. That was your own misunderstanding.
In any case, you couldnt even keep your own promise. You lost to that feeling of pleasure you get by killing people, didnt you?
I... I tried my best... I did everything I could to hold it down, but...
Unfortunately, those efforts were all for nothing.
Uu... Youre cruel......
Well, then. Its time to finish the opening act. I want to hear directly from the actual person herself...
T...the actual person...!?
Fukawa-sans body bent backwards violently...
And then, fell down with a thud. But, the next second...
You wanted her to change into me, huh?!!
Eeeek! What happened!?
I guess Ive been exposed, huh? Oh well! These things cant be helped!
My name is Genocider Syo. Im a Super High-school Level Murderer! My real name is Touko Fukawa. Isnt that, like, so lame?!!
W...whats up with that girl...?!
W...what happened... Fukawa-kun?
Who cares if Im just a secondary personality! Is there something wrong with having a serial killer inside you?!
You can overlook a girls single fault, cant you?!!
I cant keep up...!
A healthy murderer is achieved by a healthy body and a healthy soul!!
But that's overwhelmingly different from... your usual self...
Thats right. The entire world is made up of innings and outings. Fronts and rears.
Much like there are 9 outings behind every 9 innings. Much like there are lies behind every truth.
Behind every darkness, hides a light as bright as the sun!!
Thats... Genocider Syo, the serial killer...?
Her words are complete nonsense...!
Um, Genocider Syo-san... I have one question for you...
What iiiis it!?
There was talk about you being the mastermind... What are your thoughts regarding that theory?
Ah, my big revelation! I am indeed the true genuine mastermind!
...That was a lie, of course!!
So... youre not behind this...?
Of course she isnt! Dont confuse me for a weirdo like her!
Speaking of which, lately police and society really have been powerless, havent they.
They let such a half-witted murderer run loose!
I know I harm people. But isnt living life itself nothing more than harming others?
People hurt others so they can live. People get hurt by others so they can live!
...or something like that! Geeheehaahaa!!
...I hope you all understand now. This murderer killed Fujisaki.
She even had a motive. There is no doubt...
Its what we were told yesterday by Monobear.
In 24 hours, if no one is killed, he was going to reveal everyones embarrassing memories and hidden pasts...
What if Touko Fukawas memories and past are about being Genoicder Syo?
If such a thing is revealed to the world, Touko Fukawa will undoubtedly be ruined...
That means, her motive is she had a secret she absolutely didnt want revealed.
Oh, I see... I see I see I see...
But, too bad! I am not the culprit!!
I dont think anyone but a serial killer like you could kill anyone in such a bizarre fashion.
Nevertheless, I am telling the truth.
...Who do you think are we going to believe?
Thats right! How can we trust a murderers word?!
She may be right...
She may be right, but...
...But, something feels wrong.
What shes saying... we should listen to her in a little more detail...
Phase 4 (Youtube via Polsy)
Evidence Bullets: Desk lamp in the library, The state of the body, Disappearing stain
I am not the killer!
Who here would believe your words?
It would be a different story if you had an alibi...
An Alibi, huh?! That sounds so professional!
This murder and your past crimes...
Theyre perfectly identical.
There is no better evidence than that.
Give up... You are the culprit.
Is Genocider Syo... really the culprit?
Something feels wrong...
Not too difficult.
Evidence bullet: The state of the body
Theyre perfectly identical.
YOU'VE GOT THAT WRONG!
Perfectly identical? Is that really so?
I dont think Fujisaki-sans murder and Genocider Syos past crimes are completely the same...
...Eh? Are there differences?
Hey, hey, how can anyone fail to see them...?
Youre such a super small fry! Well, let me teach you!!
You see, my murders are always full of faith and passion!
I am a top-class murderer, after all - its all about perfectionism!
Its just like famous ramen restaurants, always fixated with making the perfect soup and noodles.
But, that Chihiro Fujisaki murder...
Its just like those packs of instant ramen licensed from those famous shops!!
Its nothing like my work!
Let me... explain things a little better one more time...
There are clearly two things different between Fujisaki-sans murder and Genocider Syos past crimes.
The first of those is...
The cause of death / The message in blood
The cause of death is different...
In Genocider Syos past cases, the victims were all killed the same way...
At least from observing the case file, everyone was killed by being stabbed with scissors.
But Fujisaki-san was killed by being hit on the head, wasnt she?
I...it does seem different from her past crimes...!
Isnt that strange? Genocider Syo always kills the same way, but changed her method this time...
But, thats not the only problem. There is one other thing thats different.
Thats right, if we compare the blood message in my murder art to the slices of roast pork in a bowl of ramen...
The crucifixion is just like the boiled egg!!
Can we stop with the ramen imagery, already?
So... does the second difference has to do with the crucifixion...?
That's right. The second difference has to do with the crucifixion.
The crucifixion pose / The timing of the crucifixion / The tools used to crucify
Fujisaki-sans crucifixion... Do you remember what tool was used for it...?
Her hands were tied with something that looks like a rope, and she was crucified that way, wasnt she?
Whats the problem with that?
In Genocider Syos past murders, what was used to crucify the victims was...
...just like the murder weapon, sharp scissors.
Hey! I use hand-made scissors I make myself both when killing and crucifying!!
Its natural for a top-class murderer to be a perfectionist regarding her tools of trade, doncha think?
But but but but but but but~!
Ma-kun says there are two differences, but hes wrong!!
Ma-kun... is that me...?
Hey, Ma-kun! There is one more difference!
...Oh, didnt you notice? That bunch of victims of my past murders...
Theres one hidden rule connecting them all!!
If you think about that rule youll get it in no time! The reason I wouldnt kill that loli kid!
Um... so, in short...
Genocider Syos victims are all connected by a hidden rule, and Fujisaki-san doesnt fit it?
Oh, I think I understand! The reason it couldn't be her who killed Fujisaki-san is...
She is her friend / She is female / She is her lover
Could it be... because Fujisaki-san was female...?
W...whats the meaning of this...?
There was a hidden thread connecting all of Genocider Syos past victims.
Ken Genda (32), Tetsuhiro Honda (17), Takeshi Shouji (23), Kazukiyo Kanno (14), Takeshi Yoshida (30)...
Taro Komatsu, Takefumi Satono, Youji Okuda, Erio Takeda, Shu Tsuji, Naoji Ishi, Yoshito Yumejima... The list is endless.
Theyre all men...?
Thats right! Those murders I carry with faith and passion, theyre all of men that turn me on!
When Syo speaks about men who "turn her on", the word moe in one of its forms is almost certainly used in the original Japanese. If you don't know what that means, well, I hope you never find out.
Kyaa, how embarrassing! I said it!!
W...what the fuck!!
I cant help myself! I am a fangirl, after all! A crackin fangirl who deeply hates gloomy personalities!
A fangirl well on her way to become a veteran!
Syo is a self-proclaimed fujoshi. That's the female version of the otaku, usually literally translated as "rotten girl". Fujoshi like obsessing over male anime characters and read and draw manga involving them fucking each other. Syo also strives to become a Kifujin. That's the term used for fujoshi who remain fangirls even as they grow older. Kifujin is a pun on a word that sounds the same and means "a noblewoman", but written with the "fu" character that means "rotten" - the same one as in "fujoshi" itself.
A...are you saying that since shes not a turn-on, you wouldnt kill Fujisaki-san, who is a girl...?
What would happen if a ramen chef decides to make pasta? You can say theyre all using the same ingredients, but thats just silly talk!
Im the same! My faith and passion are the exact reason I will never yield! Thats my unique absolute perfection of a reality!
I understand your hobbies and contrivances. Nevertheless, they are just simple hobbies and contrivances.
When push comes to shove and it comes to killing for survival, the story changes.
What do you think I am, some kind of a loser?!!
You see, I would, like, never kill anyone just for such a cheap reason as survival...
And even if that rare occasion where I must kill in order to survive presents itself...
Why would I ever bother with the crucifixion and the blood message?! They just give me away and are a huge pain to make!
Her reasoning makes sense...
And also, no matter why I kill, I would never neglect my beloved scissors!
What idiot would ever use a heavy dumbbell on purpose?!!
Maybe you had to used a dumbbell that was on the scene because there arent any suitable scissors in this school?
What I use aren't suitable scissors. Theyre my hand-made super-trendy scissors that can make earth itself fall on its knees!
In that case, it makes even more sense that we dont have them here at the school, right?
Are you sure about that?
