Now that Kotarou is back in Japan, he figures out a plan to stop salvation.
After returning to Japan, Esaka obviously saw that Kotarou has changed. Eventually, he reunites with his team and decides to patrol the forest. This enables Kotarou to see Kagari to figure out a plan to save the world.
Believe it or not, Kagari in this arc is intelligent. She explains the salvation and re-evolution process. Now humans are using too much natural resources that this re-evolution process is not possible. With that, Kotarou agrees to help Kagari find the good memories. The only thing is that he doesn’t know how to find them.
The possible way is to stop the conflict between Guardian and Gaia. With that, Kotarou joins Gaia and becomes a summoner to infiltrate them. After basic training, the leader of the Suzaki faction gives Kotarou documents and special monsters that don’t drain life source. It’s obvious that Kotarou is trying to sabotage Gaia so Kotarou doesn’t have to resort to violence.
In the last half, it seems that Yasamin is tasked to analyze the data. While it’s obvious that she doesn’t want him to get involved, Kotarou needs to do it. When it comes to Kagari, it’s obvious that she is impatient. Aside from Kagari wandering around, she wants both Gaia and Guardian eliminated.
As expected, things are not instant potatoes. Thankfully, Kotarou calmed her down. The next day after sending the data, he sees Kotori. He finds out that she turned her parents into monsters. It’s understandable that having one’s love ones pass away is hard. Turning them into monsters won’t bring them back. Not only that, stopping Kagari is obviously not something a kid should do. Will Kotarou convince Kotori to stop protesting Kagari out of safety? We’ll see next time.
