Yachiyo finally decides to visit the memory museum to save Iroha. However, it’s not for the reasons that you think it is.
At last, Yachiyo manages to rescue Iroha from Mifuyu’s deception. Meanwhile, Iroha shares her intention to Touka that she is not joining the Wings of Magius. However, it comes at a price.
While Yachiyo takes Iroha out of the museum, she shares her intentions of breaking up the team. It becomes obvious what she wants to do while Iroha questions her. Of course, Iroha is against Yachiyo’s decision since she can’t give her a good reason. Eventually, she gives in and is afraid that Iroha will die if she is by her side.
We find out that Yachiyo made a selfish wish that she regrets. She wished that she wanted to survive. Given that she works in the fashion industry, which is highly competitive, she thought she can make it. Because of her wish, her fellow coworkers disappear, and she took her career solo. Given what happened in those flashbacks with Kanae dying after her soul gem shattered and Meru becoming a witch, there is no surprise she became a hermit. She is reluctant to become friends with anyone over the fear of them dying around her.
I can understand why she feels this way. However, it does not mean that it will happen to Iroha and her friends. After rescuing Yachiyo, Iroha admits that she become strong because of her. She doesn’t think that people died because of her either.
With that, Iroha promises to Yachiyo that she won’t die easily. In the game, Yachiyo thinks that if she is the leader, people will die around her. With Iroha assuming the role of leader, Yachiyo’s fear would disappear. This is basically the same. With Yachiyo addressing Iroha by her first name, it’s quite obvious where this is going. It’s the beginning of the relationship between Iroha and Yachiyo.
Of course, they ran into a brainwashed Mami. Eventually, she shows her new form, Holy Mami when Sayaka shows up. Of course, it seems that Holy Mami has an upper hand with all those guns, it was too much for Iroha and Yachiyo to handle.
While Sayaka protects them while suffering some major injuries such as having her arm blown off in some instances. Yes, it’s a reference to Rebellion where Homura kills herself. However, she is still very much alive and healed from the injury instantly.
Eventually, Yachiyo and Iroha used their Doppel, but it seems that Holy Mami is undefeatable. The building floor eventually creates a big hole and Iroha along with Holy Mami fell into it. Sayaka rescues Yachiyo who really wants to protect Iroha. Still, I think Iroha is still very much alive.
Meanwhile, you have Touka taking the role of Big Brother in a rally brainwashing all those black feather followers. It appears that Momoko, Kaede and Rena has joined. Sure, Rena resisted, but she eventually complied.
Either way, it seems that Iroha and Yachiyo is in a tough situation. Sure, the anime is heading in a slightly different direction from the game since the next four chapters are rather long. I have a feeling that once they get back together, they need to bring back the team together. Afterwards, they need to deal with the Magius.
Still, I wonder what they are up to and why they are waiting to summon the Walpurgisnacht. We have to wait and see in the second season or play the game. If you play the game, my friend code can be found on the about page on this blog.
