WARNING: The next comprises spoilers for Platinum Finish Episode 7, “Tower of Nightmare,” now streaming on Crunchyroll and Funimation.
Because the divine battle royale rages on, Mirai Kakehashi should discover a approach to reconcile his want for a peaceable, pacifistic life and his obligation to struggle within the battle royale till the very finish. Mirai is aware of what he should do, however he cannot but discover a clear resolution to make anybody, least of all himself, blissful.
In contrast to the bold Mild Yagami, Mirai goals to outlive and thrive as an nameless no one, and in his personal phrases, he would sooner die than take another person’s life for any motive. Nevertheless, by this level within the heavenly battle, that angle is nothing greater than a legal responsibility, and Nanato Mukaido actually thinks so too.
Mirai’s worst enemy, the scheming Metropoliman, lays one other entice for his God candidate rivals, this time on the Nice Tower in Tokyo, the place the knife-wielding “Girl A” awaits them. As soon as Mirai and Nanato arrive, Metropoliman units off some explosives, costing Lady A her life and kicking the battle into excessive gear. Nanato, as a talented strategist, swaps angels with Mirai to persuade Metropoliman to shoot him, giving Mirai an opportunity to hit Metropoliman with a purple arrow. When Metropoliman fires his white arrow, the pacifistic Mirai revises the plan, and as a substitute of hitting Metropoliman together with his purple arrow, he defects the white arrow with it.
Mirai’s misstep ruins Nanato’s dangerous plan, and Metropoliman gladly fights his two enemies straight in a livid midair duel. Mirai by no means will get one other likelihood to hit Metropoliman with one other purple arrow, nonetheless, and Metropoliman retreats earlier than Mirai can attempt to land one other blow. Mirai and Nanato return to Saki’s home in defeat; whereas they did not lose their lives, additionally they failed to perform something in opposition to their strongest foe. There, in Saki’s bed room, Mirai has one other meltdown in regards to the violence of this God candidate battle royale.
Mirai as soon as once more laments the violent nature of the God candidate choice course of, reflecting that even when his classmates or aunt and uncle tormented him, he by no means fought again. Nevertheless, Nanato considers this weak spot, not power. Mirai can’t think about anybody, least of all himself, discovering pleasure in attacking and hurting others on this divine recreation, though his patron angel Nasse involves his protection. Nasse factors out that searching for true happiness is an important factor of all, and on that foundation, Mirai should not surrender his humble dream to stay a peaceable and joyous life in obscurity. Nanato asks Mirai to inform him extra about Metropoliman, just for Saki to induce everybody to finish the dialogue; she clearly cannot stand to see Mirai so distressed.
All this reveals that Mirai nonetheless has a protracted highway forward of him, and at this price, Nanato will carry your entire workforce. Mirai refuses to harm anybody and Saki has restricted fight prowess anyway, which can show a deadly legal responsibility afterward. Mirai was fortunate to outlive the Nice Tower struggle with solely bumps and scrapes, particularly since Metropoliman had been bluffing about blowing up one other constructing. Within the subsequent struggle, Metropoliman could have a good greater benefit, particularly if he retains combining his arrows and recruiting new allies.
Certainly, Mirai’s subsequent struggle could also be his final. For now, he should perceive that he should pay for his future peace and happiness with bloodshed and aggression, or else he’ll lose all the things. Mirai is locked into this divine recreation, and he cannot again out till somebody has gained. Both he’ll kill Metropoliman or Metropoliman will kill him — and within the latter case, residing that peaceable life will likely be really inconceivable.
