From this point on, accepting his death, expediting it. With his own life as sacrifice, Heiwajima Shizuo would be, as a monster, banished from the human world. If he could prevent a future where a monster could stroll amongst humans so brazenly, it could be said that he had won, couldn’t it?

“…Do it, monster.”
