Now that Shamiko met Sakura in her dream, can she find the memory she is looking for. Also, it seems that Momo becomes worried that Shamiko won’t wake up. It’s obvious what is going to happen next, right?
At last, Shamiko finally meets Chiyoda Sakura after she used her magic to make her full body appear. Yep, she seems happy to see Sakura. Of course, Sakura revealed that she can’t come back to the real world for obvious reasons. Not to mention, her current form is just a mirage made from Shamiko’s memories.
As expected, Sakura’s core is inside Shamiko. She tells Shamiko this after taking her to the hospital room. This can explain how Shamiko is able to hear her voice when she got near that wand. Since Sakura’s magical powers are depleting from treating Shamiko’s curse, she decides to insert the core inside her. That is while she was in her cat form. This adds up to Shirosawa’s account of seeing a familiar white cat going through the hospital’s walls. It was Sakura.
In other words, Sakura basically gave Shamiko her core. Yes, with the hopes that someday she becomes strong enough to break the curse. Yes, Sakura eventually starts to disappear, which causes Sakura to become despite. After all, she believes that bringing back Sakura will make Momo smile, thus achieving her goal.
Before Sakura leaves, she tells Shamiko that Momo doesn’t need the city or herself for Momo to become happy. The answer to that might be closer than Shamiko thinks. As expected, she tells Shamiko to protect the city and become a strong demon to break the curse. From that, maybe Sakura might be able to come back to the real world.
Of course, meanwhile, Momo seems worried that Shamiko might not wake up. Yes, Momo tries to find a way to wake Shamiko up. Yes, by “temporarily” becoming her vassal. When Shamiko saw Momo’s Darkness Peach form, she becomes hyped up. That is while defeating Shamiko’s unpleasant memories.
Has the day finally come with Momo coming over to the dark side and becoming Shamiko’s vassal? Shamiko never thought this day would come. Not to mention, she becomes obsessed over Momo’s mid-drift. Sure, Shamiko notices the scars, but thankfully, Momo tells her it’s nothing to worry about. They eventually went into the portal that bring them back to the real world. Of course, Shion helped made this possible with her laboratories and her special medicine. Yes, the same one Shamiko took that allowed her to use her Crisis Management form.
Sadly, Momo’s dark form is short lived as Mikan does a move to bring Momo back to the light side. It kind of worked, but Momo is in the neutral state now. Notice that part of her hair clip is dark instead of pink.
Sure, Shamiko feels disappointed that Momo wouldn’t commit herself to becoming Shamiko’s vassal yet. She is so close, but still so far away. Of course, Shamiko feels conflicted about telling the truth about Sakura to Momo. She eventually tells the truth to Momo. Surprisingly, she takes it well. As expected, Momo makes it obvious that she doesn’t care about the city anymore.
Now that Momo knows where Sakura is, the only thing she wants to focus on is making her beloved happy. Yep, Shamiko finds out what Sakura tells her as Momo finally smiles. Shamiko obviously starts to tear up after seeing Momo smile. I must admit that moment was emotional that Shamiko teared up. Yep, she is upset over Momo not wanting to go to the dark side.
Either way, it’s obvious that Momo will always be by Shamiko’s side and will help her become stronger. I find it funny how Momo wouldn’t become Shamiko’s vassal aka “marriage” yet but do with over a popsicle stick. Of course, Momo ends up breaking off to share and giving the half to Shamiko instead of doing it together.
Either way, Shamiko is getting closer having Momo to fall for her. It’s only a matter of time until she goes to the dark side and win her heart, for real. I guess we can say they are in a relationship now.
