Efforts to reunite the members of Ayakashi Hall take an unexpected, tragic turn when one of their number falls in the battle. The death of a close friend serves to strengthen the remaining throwbacks' resolve to prevent the grim outcome relayed by their future selves, even if it means exposing the dark truth of one of their most trusted allies...
I am quite satisfied with this conclusion.
There is scheming, and death, and violence, and reveals of truth. Friendship comes to save the day, as does love. It’s a mix of all of these things, and I think it’s concludes quite well, I’m happy to say.
The surprising part, to me, was that we get a big history on Mikoto and Shimon, and find out who exactly is behind all this and why. It started sweet, and then turned very sad and draining. I honestly don’t remember Shimon at all, but I can ignore that.
But the truth is revealed to them all. We see how important everyone is to each other, and what Kagerou intended all along. Mikoto and Banri have formed a sweet friendship.
The final chapter, skipping forward to show us where everyone is after it all, is very sweet and very satisfying. It’s delightful to see how everything worked out, including for their other selves.
This was a much larger volume than normal, and it needed to be. I’m really happy with how this series ended, and it is definitely worth reading.
