Part 91: Let's do this!

Getting back to the story at hand... there isn't really much else we can do except head through that door, really.

And on the other side is... well, not a boss fight, at least not yet. So let's see what everybody has to say about the developments so far. We'll start with Li Hua.

This has to be some kind of opportunity, born out of possibilities converging over the entire span of time as we know it...
So I've just got to do it. I've got to give it all I have.
...I'm afraid that's the best plan I have.
No... That's enough. It's a good answer... one I can get my head around.
Thanks. But if you catch me saying anything stupid or pathetic again, feel free to knock some sense into me.
Got it. I hope you're ready for it, because you know I won't hesitate to do so!
All right! Let's do this!

Next we'll talk to Conor.

Lessica is so strong, yet even she fears him...
Are you scared?
...I suppose I am. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't.
But something inside me is telling me that I cannot run.
Don't worry. I can fight this fight. I want to pay everyone back for all of their support.
You said it. Now it's our turn to be there for Lessica.
Of course! She's our friend now, after all.
I'll do my best!

Then we might as well talk to Marie...

And then Orlando...

Finally, Araki.

Yeah. In the seas and in the mountains. In the rocks and the soil and the wind and the storms. Everywhere.
I see... I guess different cultures must see gods differently.
So that means whatever a god is or isn't all depends on what you believe. It's all in your head.
Anyway, never mind the philosophy. All we need to do now is go find what lies ahead and fight it.
Yeah, I guess so.
How long you planning on making me wait?

Before we go forward, some last words with Lessica.

Do you remember when I accused you of being weak?
...Yeah. When you healed me after I got beaten to a pulp by Araki, right?
Correct. The truth is that something occurred to me after that incident.
I thought that this was a kind of a weakness only a human can possess. When I realised this, I felt deeply envious of you...
Humans... they truly are remarkable creatures. They possess such warmth and so many other things that I do not...
That is why I would like to protect humanity. No matter what the cost may be.
Thank you... Lessica.
I... I want you to be free. I don't want you to be locked up in this cold prison any more.
...Return to earth with us. After we defeat Amon.
...Thank you for your kind words, Darwin.
You hold the key to this battle's victory. Within you rests the Sopia of Neron. You are truly a most unforeseen Nominator.
If it is you...
...I shall believe in you. You will defeat him.
I will.

Ok, really we need to go though that door now.

Bachs. Of course.

Please raise your hands if you didn't see this coming (not to mention after having seen all previous endings that we've already gone through).

Well, I guess this is it then? Defeat him and we're done?

Let's try pair attack... but it doesn't work very well.

Hm. Let's try one more time... no, I guess normal attacks are not going to work here.

Uh, this doesn't sound good...
