Hello everyone and welcome, welcome to the penultimate Granbelm episode. Whether or not you’re happy about it, this show is (finally) over. Is Mangetsu gonna come out of this alive or nah?
Let’s have it. Final battle, I’m ready. I’m very ready. The episode starts with some sepia rain and some sort of vintagey style. Someone’s distorted voice is being heard in the background, and it’s VERY creepy. Am I still watching the same show? Is this Mordor? SAURON? (a few minutes later, I realize I was playing the episode in slow motion, and all I feel is relief).
The battle begins, everyone is there, Shingetsu is ready, Mangetsu is ready, Suishou is ready, let’s finish this. No talking, just kick each others’ tiny butts and let’s get this over with. But of course not… It’s story time for Shingetsu, who explains things about magical things. Suishou does not care, and the battle is on. Her new thing is that she realizes some sort of sting, like, you know, a stingray? I think? Is that the deal?
Mangetsu and Shingetsu rally behind the ‘Eliminate All Magic’ cause and unite together in battle while Suishou gives them a talk on how great a princeps mage she will be. That sure is a lot of intense battling, right?? Um, Suishou hits Shingetsu, Mangetsu is worried, they’re shooting each other with laser beams, explosion explosion steam smoke boom boom. More lasers. Stingray lasers. Casual screaming. Chorus-performed music. You get the idea. But mostly screaming and paranoid yandere style laughing is what is going on. And now the mic is passed to Shingetsu again. She says something pretty intense because Suishou seems pretty upset. Mangetsu does something too. Suishou is falling somewhere. They try to attack her again, she fires more lasers, come on, let’s get this over with. The Magiaconatus obviously wants Shingetsu to be, just let it be. Laser laser laser. Shingetsu screams Mangetsu and Mangetsu screams Shingetsu and Suishou is crazy and… well, for a moment it seems like Suishou won, but I’m pretty sure this is not the deal. Now Mangetsu is screaming at Suishou. She’s putting up a real fight against her. She takes a moment to explain why her existence is valid, but I don’t really care right now, sorry. Some pink bubbles show up and the Magiaconatus seems to be doing something. Shingetsu is still active. After yet another Mangetsu monologue, she is about to disappear, and in a last effort, she tells Shingetsu to finish everything. Please, let’s. I don’t even understand what is going on anymore, just tell me who wins, who lives and who dies. Nope? Nope.
Looks like there’s another episode of this, be excited.
