The Executioner and Her Way of Life Episode 7: Mystery at Libelle

Thus began a new journey for our heroines.

Menou and Akari begin their next journey

After Orwell’s death a new archbishop stepped up. Highly doubt they’ll be better than the hag but we’ll see. Our heroines’ new destination was a sanctuary 3 months away on foot. While Akari was happy to travel with Menou our favorite executioner thought about her goal of giving her bubbly companion a proper death by her own hands.

Akari motivated by Menou's presence to keep goingTwo weeks passed and Akari appeared to be losing steam but remembered Menou was there and that’s enough to keep her spirits up. Good thing too as they’d arrived at their first stop, the port town of Libelle.

Menou points to PandemoniumAkari would quickly notice a large fog in the distance. It was actually one of the four major Human Errors, Pandemonium. Menou thought about the first time she saw it while traveling with Master Flare.

Akari enjoying the hot springAfter reporting to the Libelle church Menou took Akari to the onsen. She got out a bit early to dry up.

Momo relishes Menou againOf course it was to meet up with Momo. On her way to Libelle she came across the Gorgeous One but alas ditched her again. She also mentioned a group claiming themselves to be “The Fourth Class” separate from the 3 others. They’re rich troublemakers who were beaten by Master Flare. It’s possible remnants still lurked in Libelle who wanted to take out their grudge on “Flarette” so she’d keep an eye out. Lastly she asked her if she had plans to dump Miss Boobalicious into Pandemonium but Menou pretended to not have thought about it. Momo could tell she had doubts about killing Akari.

Manon LibelleBy the way. There’s a castle island that caught Akari’s eye but Menou said it’s forbidden to visit. They could at least travel around it. Menou thought to herself it belonged to the Fourth. Their leader was Manon, daughter of Count Libelle. They knew Menou had arrived (probably informed by a spy in the church) but she wanted to keep watch and not take action yet. The lords looked down on her but she knew very well how dangerous a disciple of the woman who killed her mother could be. She calmly let them trash talk her as she appeared to have things under control.

Akari vs Pandemonium monsterBack to our heroines Menou gave Akari some nausea medication but it’s the classic sleeping drug. She did indeed cast her into Pandemonium but this unlocked Future Akari’s seal. My bad about last time thinking the password was “Menou’s in Danger” when clearly it was “It’s happening again”. She’d faced the Pandemonium monster many times. However, this time there was a mysterious light she hadn’t seen before.

Akari back againAs Menou struggled with guilt, feeling she didn’t deserve to care about Akari after all she’d done, her future sweetie again reversed time for herself and popped back on the boat. She deduced the reason she returned to her was because she wanted to. She hoped Akari still had her sanity after using time magic several times already. Maybe Future Akari wasn’t as much in control as she thought if the white light was any indication. We’ll see.

Manon and strange girlOh and the strange little girl Manon was with when we first saw them at the beach voluntarily got smushed in an iron maiden. So that happened. We’ll find out next time if that’s a routine battle ritual for them or she’s a mindless copy of her late imouto. Best not overthink it yet. Others are free to do so.

Good stuff as always.

    Flare is their “sworn enemy”. Flare’s job is to kill Isekaiers. So…what better way to handle said “sworn enemy” than try and create something that cannot be killed by an “executioner”?…is the thought process I have about the adorable creepy loli ~

    Momo really is getting shafted for screen time…Hopefully this almost exclusively two person dynamic changes up more in the near future, as the stories I enjoy the most, tend to stay away from that dynamic.

    I wonder if where Ashuna was dropped is going to have some plot relevance later, or was just an excuse to keep her out of the current plotline?

    Silly Momo (apparently she didn’t see the power of the princess in the previous episode) thought that a few dozen monsters would stop Ashuna from flirting with her in the future.

    Was half expecting the other dudes in the dining room to start gagging as soon as Manon left the room but it seems not. Either way I guess they don’t wanna know what’s in those sandwiches…

    Akari starting at the giant fish monster and going “ah hell this again” was funny, like when you’re doing the video game again and this part keeps tripping you up.
    And well considering she’s a time traveler, that’s not too far off the truth!

    Momo’s quite the trooper, braving the “Wild Area” on the on the unpaved path and evading Ashuna. Despite such trials she made it to Libelle earlier than our main duo. She definitely deserves to be showered with praise.

    Ashuna’s to Momo as Akari’s to Menou; try as they might to be rid of them, they’ll appear before them once more as if nothing happened 😉 . Also it just dawned on me that the pairings are quite funny if you look at their initials.

    Yeah, it does look like True Akari comes into play if she experiences an event again, specifically the times Menou attempted to kill her perhaps? Also, I wonder what that ray of light was supposed to mean. That aside, Menou made it her goal to give Akari a final death but the longer they travel together, the more she struggles with her resolve. Can she hold it together?

    Those Fourth people sure loved talking smack to Manon, didn’t they? Well, I won’t be surprised if she gets one over them all. As for that unnerving girl with her, she’s gonna be a pain to deal with(being turned into mush is just a flesh wound to her, I’m sure).

    I find Momo’s sticking her tongue out when she closed the entrance on Ashuna was funny. It’s obvious that Ashuna has a thing for Momo, but the crush is one sided, at least for now. Still, the moment with Momo and Menou is nice and all.

    It’s obvious that Menou can’t kill Akari that easily, but that light probably indicates things will differ this time. Also, I wonder why Manon has the urge to kill that little girl. I guess we’ll find out soon.
