A serial killer hunting dark haired female students on a college campus in Arizona inspires the FBI investigators to shut the school down. One student goes to the room of another to tell her she has to leave. Inside the room - before the other student knocks - the student choosing to stay on campus is shown cutting herself. She's suicidal and has dyed her hair black from blonde(?) in the hope of being the next victim. SPOILER: She eventually finds the killer, but he thinks her plea to be murdered is a trap set by the police. She goes into a rage and stabs the killer. When the police refuse to shoot her, she stabs herself. Both she and the killer die from their injuries. The SIV scene is very short.
This is a manga as well as a television series in which characters with a special power called the Branch of Sin are forced to fight to the death in a corrupt prison. Although how they each use their powers differs, all of the characters have the same power: the power to manipulate their blood. Many of the characters, therefore, injure themselves to draw their weapon. For example, a teenage girl snatches her earrings out of her ears so she can form whips out of her blood at the beginning of one of her matches.
SI free side note: Losing a match results in a turn on the "Too Bad for the Loser" show. A Wheel of Fortune style wheel is spun and stops at the losers command. Whatever body part is represented on the slot the wheel stops on is removed from the loser's body and used for experimentation.
Ellie: Okay, okay, okay.
