Trapped by Professor Gedoin in the hellish prison beneath Dream Town Inari, the Exwires must fight to survive and rescue Izumo. The more they learn about Professor Gedoin’s plans, the more they realize the horror they face. Each will need to rely on their own strength, and each other, like never before. But Izumo is determined to meet her fate on her own and save her sister, even if it means her destruction! What will Rin and his friends lose in order to win?
The group gets out of their locked rooms and meet up, going to save Izumo. Gedoin has a very bad plan going on, with a couple extra surprised under his sleeve. Izumo is trying to save her mother and sister, martyring herself for them. It gets really bad for her for a minute there, but I think that it makes sense, the way it ends.
I like Izumo, and I like that she’s learning to lean on her friends here. She needs them, and they’re there for her. Gedoin is insane, and he deserves what he gets. Renzo, I’m still not sure what he’s up to, though. He’s double-crossing everyone at this point, and I don’t like it, not at all. I don’t quite get what side he’s on, and I don’t imagine it’ll be good when we find out.
There were a couple big fights in this volume, and a few things were figured out. It looks like this plot is mostly at a conclusion, but I’m sure something else will show up in the next one.
