Yuki Yuna is a Hero 3.8: Legendary Pain Part 4: Past End

The end of the Wakaba Arc.

Yuna and Wakaba charge

The time had come for the two remaining heroines to make their last stand. Before their final charge Yuna hoped someone would remember her so her soul would live on, thus she gave a basic yet powerful self-introduction.

Yuna exhaustedThe battle was difficult and intense as expected. It was 2 vs 6 after all. They hit hard and got hit back just as hard.

Yuna refuses to give upYuna went for another attack but her Super Mode ran out. In a pool of her own blood she’s about  to suffer a similar fate as Chikage but refused to give up, pushing herself beyond her limit, showing fans of YuYuYu and Symphogay where her descendant and Captain Bikki got their badassery from. Alas despite her best effort to keep going she too fell after her ultimate attack.

Wakaba sends a messageAlone and in great despair Wakaba saw the Vertex retreat as she honored her fallen comrades by letting the alien bastards know loud and clear who kicked their ass as they seemingly retreated.

Secret hoeThat’s the end of the Hero Records. The “epilogue” said Wakaba retired after that battle as the 300 year miko sacrifice ritual began. As our heroines reflected Sonoko hoped the end of the first half of Season 2 meant the battles were over. We knew they weren’t just yet. She checked the box again and found a hoe…a secret hoe. Nah. Just a hoe. Probably.

Later we continued with present day Yuna’s personal suffering. Again fans knew where that would go. Let’s save that for another time.

Yuna Yuki meets Yuka TakashimaTHE TWO YUNAS!

Like Togo Yuna also had an interesting conversation in what I assume was dream limbo…with Yuna Takashima! She of course knew about the curse as she revealed her soul was taken in by Lord Shinju, probably similar to Gin. She talked about the end of S1 when everyone calling out to her saved Yuna Y from the afterlife while Yuna T was too banged up to keep going as we saw. Yuna T then got to the main reason for her visit, to take the curse from Yuna Y and shoulder the burden herself. She’s like “Hey, the gods think we’re the same person so why not trick those fickle bastards. You’ve suffered enough Yuna.” Obviously Yuna Y refused because she’s a true hero, just like Yuna T. Thus the events of S2 continued up to the wedding announcement…

It was a badass tragedy. That’s Wakaba Nogi wa Yuusha de aru in a nutshell. Great stuff despite some moments and interactions getting cut. What we got was excellent though. Surely will motivate new fans who want to fill the remaining gaps to check out the light novel sometime.

The Sentinels returnNext time, the Sentinels come out of retirement!

    “At the end of this day, one shall stand, one shall fall….”
    Takashima and Wakaba fought the hard fight, with lots of blood, sweat and tears (literally)
    it was sad that Takashima didn’t make it. But she went out in a blaze of glory.
    And so our main group has finished reading Nogi Wakaba is a Hero, kind of.
    The two Yunas interacting was really nice.
    The sentinels come back, yay!

    I hope someday someone explain more properly what’s the deal with the multiple Yuunas, Takashima said she became part of the Shinju, but that doesn’t explain why Yuuki looks exactly like her. They can’t be related because Takashima died after her amazing thousand punches and she had no other family.

    What a grand last stand that was, a tragic but fitting end to the story of the Heroes of yore.

    Seeing the two Yunas together was wonderful. Yuna T wanting to take on that curse was a nice offer but Yuna Y politely declined it, as expected. Being a shoulder to cry on was all Y wanted for now.

    So, Mebuki and pals had on more mission to handle, eh? It’s gonna be sweet seeing them in action again.

    And so Wakaba’s story is done, I did ended up liking it in the end even if it was rushed, though I did wish we got to see a part of Wakaba’s ending from the LN, still not too bad in the end.

    I was not expecting to see Yuuna interact with Yuuna, a little sprinkle of the game lol joke aside, it was really a heartwrenching moment just seeing Yuuna talk to Yuuna about her curse and even Yuuna offered to take her place but ofc Yuuna being Yuuna chose not to. She deserves happiness dammit!!! Stop messing with her and her friends stupid Taisha and Vertex!!!

    Next episode is definitely gonna be interesting since we are gonna see Mebuki and co. out of retirement!
