As the Pandemonium summons a bunch of monsters for Menou to fight for her “movie,” a copy of herself eventually meets Akari. I wonder why?
While we don’t know the girl’s name before becoming the Pandemonium, I admit that she is creepy. However, don’t let her cute looks deceive her as she has the pleasure of making her own “movies.” She likes seeing humans struggle in the fight against the monsters. In this case, Menou uses her most powerful attacks from her scriptures in the two waves of monsters the Pandemonium summoned.
Eventually, Menou is at her limit until Ashuna shows up to allow her to connect to her. This is after discovering that hundreds of people became the Pandemonium’s sacrifice through the monstrine. She eventually met Menou and introduced herself. That allowed Menou to finally use Ashuna’s ether to send the Pandemonium to the earthen vein to the heavenly one so she can’t get out. But, of course, that light looks familiar to the one Akari saw in the fog. I wonder why?
Menou becomes relieved that the Pandemonium is gone. Ashuna seems worried about Momo when she mentions her plan to meet Momo after the investigations. Menou eventually tells her that an attack poisoned Momo. That is until there is some shaking underneath the castle. As expected, Menou’s attack to get rid of the Pandemonium failed.
Meanwhile, Akari decides to help Momo out by reverting Momo back to a healthy state. Also, that is while admitting that Akari hates Momo because Momo always hogs Menou. Not too surprising since Momo is her competition after all.
Eventually, Akari witnesses the castle collapsing before the Pandemonium appears. This is where the Pandemonium becomes creepy, appearing behind Akari in some instances. She also summons arms that choke Akari after she decides to freeze the Pandemonium. But, of course, her Pure Concept is ineffective, as she eventually reveals.
The Pandemonium reveals the bombshell that Akari’s time regressions are what allowed her to escape partially. It created a gap in the fog that the “Ivory” created. After that, we know what happened. In addition, The Pandemonium also taunts Akari that she will lose her memories when she was in Japan if she keeps using her Pure Concept. It seems as if the Pandemonium is doing this to taunt Akari.
As expected, Akari doesn’t care about those memories as she had a rough time in Japan with other schoolgirls bullying her. The only person she cares about is Menou. That is when the Pandemonium brings out the last bombshell, and Akari’s desire to have Menou kill her is at a dead end. That is because of a people who can connect to the Astral Archive, which creates a permanent record written in the scriptures.
The Pandemonium mentions the certain someone that ruins Akari’s plan. She also reveals a way to return to Japan. This shocks Akari, but it’s not surprising. Then again, since this timeline changed so much, there might be a chance that Flare might not get what she wants ultimately.
Meanwhile, another copy of the Pandemonium summons a Kraken-like creature that repeatedly devours itself to become powerful. Thankfully, it’s harmless because of the fog, making it impossible to attack Ashuna and Menou. But, of course, she has another trick up her sleeves as she reveals that Akari allowed her to escape. The Pandemonium transforms into her final form, which is an abomination. Can Menou and Ashuna defeat it while Akari changes her destiny? We’ll find out in the finale.
