The Executioner and Her Way of Life (Episode 7) – Port City of Libelle

What happened?

Menou is convinced that Akari has turned time back by several months so that she can do it again. She hasn’t retained her memories but seems to have held onto her trust in Menou. Momo is concerned about them spending that much time together but agrees to keep her distance. It’s going to be hard, but she can do it. Menou decided that she would take Akari to Sanctuary, a safe place for Lost Ones.

The port city of Libelle is the first real stop on their route. It was somewhere she once visited with Flare who overthrew the Duke who sought to create a new class system, ignoring the established order. It’s also the home of one of the great human catastrophes. Off the shore, there is a thick fog that blankets the horizon. Once inside, it is impossible to get out. You are either eaten by a monster or spend the rest of your days drifting in circles.

Momo tells Menou that she should try to leave Akari in the fog. It may actually kill her. Surprisingly, Menou hadn’t considered it. Maybe, she’s getting soft or is starting to develop feelings for Akari. She drugs her while on a boat trip and leaves her to drift into the fog. Akari wakes with her memories and laughs at Menou’s attempt to kill her. This method has never worked, however, she does experience something new. They return to shore unaware that there are other things to worry about in Libelle.

What did you think?

After the excitement of the last episode, this was a bit of a comedown in terms of action. The intrigue, however, continues to grow. I like that Menou thinks she’s got to the bottom of things with Akari when she’s barely scratched the surface. There’s one thing that is bothering me now and that’s that I want to follow Akari far more. I want to see the differences from the previous times she’s made this journey.

There’s so much going on and a lot of it is only hinted at, which makes me want to devour this series. It started off fairly slow with a great idea and has blossomed into a spectacular web of timelines and threads. I am worried that we won’t get a full conclusion this season, but I also want them to take their time and not skip things. The detail is going to be essential to understanding everything.

I’m really enjoying this series now. It was interesting from the beginning, but the last three or four episodes elevated it to another level. I came for the interesting take on isekai stories and a bit of yuri romance, but I never expected this level of intrigue. I love a good time travel mystery and this is proving to be a lot of fun.
