It was the beginning of the end. Were our lovelies ready for what Suishou had in store in the decisive battle?
We started off with what could only be described as a Holy Grail from the Fate franchise moment as Mangetsu and Ernesta were immediately “treated” to another one of Suishou’s illusions.
The battle was as fierce as one would expect from a final clash as Suishou revealed she had 1000 years’ worth of experience competing in GRANBELM wars. The reason? The Magiaconatus made a deal with her which stated that if she could prove that there was no other mage strong enough to become the Uber Mage then she would win the title. 1000 years later and it still wasn’t satisfied essentially appointing Suishou as the “Final Boss”. Obviously doing this crap for a millennium would potentially drive anyone insane, hence Aoi Yuuki using the notes she took from Yoko Hikasa during this fight.
As usual I won’t write a full breakdown of the battle. Like I said it’s worth the wait so I’ll present a cliffnotes version instead.
Like in her battle with Kuon Suishou feigned being at a disadvantage a couple of times catching our adorable duo off guard.
A shocking moment was when Suishou crushed Ernesta causing Mangetsu to go berserk again. As she did so Suishou gloated about how selfish humanity is and that being why no one was able to beat her all this time, including Mangetsu.
Mangetsu was like “So what if humans have selfish reasons for why they fight? It’s okay because that’s part of being human (animals too but that’s besides the point). What matters is human potential in the world. Yes, there are bad people in the world and erasing magic from existence won’t change much…but it’s a start! Humanity is capable of bouncing back from any defeat so long as they’re able and willing to do something about it”
Suishou: “What do you know!? You’re just a doll!”
Mangetsu: HELL NO I’M NOT A DOLL! I am Ernesta’s hopes and dreams given a form and I will fight to the end for her!
While Mangetsu gave her all against Suishou we saw that it was part of her plan. See, Nene-Nee gave her the cloaking device she used on Nights 2 and 3. While she kept Suishou busy Ernesta would secretly make her move.
Suishou refused to acknowledge Mangetsu’s courage but she didn’t expect her to go Super Form at the last minute unleashing all her power in one blast. Victory was at hand but instead of another illusion Suishou had more reserve power and…
Next time the G-View.
