One year after his disappearance, the police are no closer to finding
Satoshi or solving his aunt's murder, and Shion is quickly running out
of patience. Dressing alternately as "Shion" and "Mion," she positions
herself as close to Keiichi as possible. Given that he too entered the
forbidden Saiguden with this year's victims, Shion suspects he will be
the next to be "demoned away." Shion hopes her actions will spur on the
true murderer, so that when the serial killer does attack Keiichi, she
will be ready.
