The Road, The Way Home
Finally… but ever so bittersweet.
While the world faces the alien calamity that is Hirose, life in Tokyo remained the same. However, that’s only on the surface. Most people are ignorant of the danger, assuming falsely that it would never come to affect them. Even those who had the most information had a feeling of despair and helplessness.
But even so, Taisuke and company knew the Hirose will return to Tokyo one day. It’s just a matter of time.
That day… has arrived.
Yes, this may be the final chapter before the showdown with the reawakened Hirose. What better way than to start with a loving kiss from someone who knows that her feelings will remain unrequited? Poor Nami. Even though she’s a much more interesting character than Megumi, she cannot break the childhood bond that her crush shares with the latter. That and the reason why Taisuke is so deeply involved is because Hirose kidnapped Megumi early in the series. I just hope this isn’t a death flag raised for my most favorite character. Such moments have a tendency to steer that way.
If she does survive, I wonder if she’ll keep cosplaying for her online blog.
