What is even going on? How Evil are the last two episodes of Last Period: Owarinaki Rasen no Monogatari?
Well, that trapped in a game thing was just filler thankfully these two episodes went back to the shows usual crazy antics. Haru’s group gets told to check out a suspicious sounding job just because it will pay the office ten times what they usually make from their jobs. The team does point out that the sketchy details don’t sound good but they go anyway. And this is when things get a bit out of hand.The job is a dispute involving three towns and it’s a black ops mission to infiltrate one of them that has been training spirals to defend its borders. When Haru and the others try to pry for more details the clients only want to give them shady answers which makes the job even less appealing.
Haru’s team decides to abandon the mission leaving Wiseman to take over from there. This leads to Wisman’s leader begging Haru’s team to rescue them soon afterword. Upon infiltrating the city as a traveling band of entertainers they soon find a now mind-controlled Wiseman and an army of those androids they fought before. While fighting the androids the mayor of the town summons a Kaiju-sized spiral to defend his town which is countered by one of the clients who also summons one. And that is when part one of this finale ends. But how will this end?
Choco, don’t ever change. Part 2 starts exactly where we left off with the Kaiju battle we never knew we wanted. The giant beast uses their lame attacks to hit each other and right when the battle looks like it might be dull the show pulls off that merging trick that we see in Pacific Rim: Uprising and merges the giant beast together. Then we get something a little different, the new spiral starts to talk and captures Choco, to use as a power source.
Haru isn’t going to let any of this fly. He and his team rush the beast in an attempt to rescue Choco, but the beast spawns an army of spirals to deal with them. With every spiral Haru and co defeat more spawn to take their place and in some cases more than what is killed spawn. But Haru won’t give up and even when the odds look bad.
While the battle rages and Haru’s team is getting weaker all hope seems to be lost until. Backup arrives in the form of everyone they have met throughout the entire show except the mayors of course. With this new army of allies, Haru and his team are able to focus on the big guy himself until he grows wings and starts to fly away.
Fortunately, another round of reinforcements shows up to save the day. This time all of the one stared summons work together to ground the spiral by lassoing one of its legs. With the beast temporarily grounded Haru charges right through the beast chest rescuing Choco in the process. With the battle over the series gets wrapped up rather quickly. It’s revealed that the office was never broke the higher-ups were testing everyone in order to make sure everything would be running smoothly in the future. I don’t buy that excuse but it’s the one we are given. If you want more stories from this world Choco has one last piece of wisdom to share.
Ah, meta to the end. Overall I’d say these episodes are about as Evil as a Villian (9). This show has something for everyone really the parts I didn’t enjoy someone else will. If you want something that is more balanced. Check out CVoyage’s reviews for My Hero Academia. Well, that’s all I have for you today. Thanks for letting me waste your time, people.
