Not solely can or not it’s simply faraway from her physique and transplanted into the our bodies of SPES pseudo-humans with no points, but it surely incorporates her consciousness as effectively. This allows her to take over our bodies that comprise her coronary heart. Does this imply Siesta is herself a SPES pseudo-human?
Is Nagisa Natsunagi a SPES Pseudo-human?
One other main thriller within the first season of Tanmoshi is Nagisa Natsunagi, who can be revealed to have Dissociative Identification Dysfunction. Two of her alter egos are additionally linked to SPES: one is the 7-year-old Alicia with the opposite being the 17-year-old Hel. In accordance with the villainous Hel, Alicia was one of many kids SPES experimented on to the purpose of torture. This suggests Alicia was probably an orphan who was kidnapped and had her physique modified.
The modifications to Alicia’s physique have been most notably utilized by the Hel alter ego. Having joined SEED in his villainous quest to terraform the Earth and destroy all human life, Hel is ready to paralyze their opponents with solely their stare. They’re additionally able to eradicating and transplanting human hearts into their very own physique with out requiring any surgical procedure.

Previous romantic involvement simply may be the importance of Charlotte’s locket necklace that incorporates an image of herself and Siesta.
What’s Siesta’s connection to Yui Saikawa?
Maybe the most important unanswered query of Season 1 is Yui Saikawa’s involvement in Siesta’s posthumous plan to destroy SPES. At no level is it revealed the 2 met or interacted previously, although Siesta was not less than conscious of her whereas she was in London.

One recurring theme all through Season 1 of Tanmoshi is that many (if not all) of the characters are linked to SPES in some capability. They’re both direct victims, allies, or are roped into SPES’s orbit by way of affiliation with Siesta specifically.
