Now that the Pandemonium transformed into a dreadful monster, can Menou defeat it once and for all?
As expected, the Pandemonium transformed into a long insect-like monster. I must admit that it looks like an abomination. Ashuna and Menou find out that attacking it turns into individual moving pieces. Some of them escaped into town. Therefore, Menou had to fend off the Pandemonium alone until she faded into the fog.
Of course, Akari rejects Pandemonium’s offer to return to Japan as she doesn’t care about it anymore. Of course, the 2nd copy of the Pandemonium decides to escape. Kind of expected that since this copy doesn’t want to fight.
Eventually, Menou loses her dagger and scriptures to the Pandemonium. Sure, Ashuna came in the nick of time to lend her the sword she used. Menou struggles since this weapon uses a lot of mana until Akari shows up. She freezes and rewinds time before she comes to help lend Akari her ether. Sure, we get the predictable Menou scolding Akari, but she admits she came since she doesn’t want to see Menou die. Either way, it’s a nice moment as Menou understands how she feels.
With that, Akari and Menou finish the Pandemonium off with a powerful attack. Afterward, Akari reverts to her usual self. Surprisingly, Menou didn’t notice this. Yes, it’s enough to finish her, but only most of it. Of course, the Pandemonium tells the salt sword is the only thing that can eliminate a Pure Concept.
As expected, a small part of the Pandemonium escaped. She revived Manon using some bodies near the church Menou used to stay at, namely Mitsuki’s. Yes, that stereotypical male lead of an isekai story was never meant to be. This is when Manon finally realizes that the little girl her mother mentioned was her older sister. While not as strong as before, Manon and the Pandemonium will still go around causing trouble.
After Menou and Akari defeat the Pandemonium, Ashuna parts ways as she tells Menou to give Momo her best regards. Sadly, she has other things to do instead of visiting Momo. But, at least she fully recovered, although Menou regrets sending Momo into danger without knowing the extent of the Pandemonium and Manon.
At least Momo is willing to tag along with Menou as she wants to head to the salt continent to eliminate Akari with the salt sword. The question is, does she have the will to do it as she slowly falls for Akari? Even Momo gets a bit worried, which is not surprising since she is Akari’s rival. With Akari and Menou heading to their next destination, it seems that Flare observed everything from the Astral Archive. Can she thwart Akari’s plans this time around? Only one can wonder.
Shokei Shoujo no Virgin Road is an interesting take on the isekai genre. One can say it’s an anti-isekai as prestress execute the people who arrive in this world. It’s because the other-worlder’s powers are too overpowered. Not to mention, the overpowered male high school archetype is getting too cliched.
I admit that the relationship between Menou and Akari is interesting, especially since they tag along on an adventure. Momo and Menou are lovely, but Momo will have difficulty beating Akari in the game of love.
As expected, the story has interesting twists. Things such as the church’s archbishop being corrupt, sacrificing women, and wanting Akari’s Pure Concept to reverse aging. Also, Flare is a thorn in Akari’s plans. The world-building is interesting, especially how summoning other-worlders led to the Four Human Errors becoming a threat to the entire world. Unfortunately, those powers are just too overpowered.
While it’s not known whether there will be a second season in the future. The hooks make it obvious. Sure, I will get to the manga eventually. Even so, Shokei Shoujo no Virgin Road is a very interesting and enjoyable story for the reasons mentioned. Either way, I can’t get enough of Momo for apparent reasons. No, it’s not just because she has some beef with Ashuna, but her personality too.
