OcamposMoon Plays Tales of Berseria

Part 176: Hope (3)


Maotelus: "But the hate they may embrace will be matched by love."

Eleanor walks to her.

Magilou's looking on in the shadows, Bienfu in tow. She's writing something down.

Maotelus: "This world is cruel and unforgiving."

Bienfu's sleeping. Magilou kicks him awake.

Maotelus: "...even the gods themselves don't know what the future will bring."

Magilou stops at a small flower. She goes down to take it but stops herself. She walks away.

Bienfu trips and falls. Oh, Magilou...

Maotelus: "Nevertheless... I will always believe in them, Velvet...in humanity, both strong and weak..."

Velvet's smiling.

Maotelus: "In humanity, both fearsome and kind...the day will finally come when your dream becomes reality. Until then...I will kindle a flame within me, burning strong and bright!"

Maotelus raises his hand!

Maotelus: "And...I will live!"

Another bright of flash of light...

Fin.

Next (if I ever get around to it), I'm taking on the post-game stuff...

I save at this point. My god, that was a decent ending.

Honestly, if helping people is a "selfish request," then I'll take it!

Thinking about it now, Shepherd Artorius himself was technically the last therion to awaken Innominat...

Aside: Coincidentally, I just finished this game (the main story) on the day of its Japanese release!

Part 176: Hope (2)


Post-credits scene time!

A convoy is traveling through a foggy road.

There's still daemons afoot...

And there's Rokurou!

Maotelus: "This is not... the end of chaos. It is the beginning."

Rokurou pulls his second longsword out, smirking. His literal "come at me" face.

Maotelus: "Mankind... will go on fighting without end..."

Rokurou makes short work of them!

Maotelus: "...just as they did."

Eizen sits at the mast head of the ship. He flips his coin. Benwick turns around...he's gone...humans can't see malakhim anymore...

The coin still turns up a death's head.

Maotelus: "People will still seek the horizon...just as they did."

More rebuilding...

Eleanor's overseeing everything.

Maotelus: "For every laugh, there will be tears."

Eleanors caught between a fight between two men. She breaks them up.

Kamoana! She gives Eleanor an apple!

Medissa and Dyle are there too. As is Tabatha.

Part 176: Hope (1) (TW: mention of spiders, bugs)


The credits roll...

Oh my god, there's Velvet and Innominat together in an embrace, devouring themselves...

And I get flashbacks (?) of Velvet and Laphi's adventures. Arthur and Celica greet them goodbye as they go sailing to other lands...

Velvet jumps at a spider!

Magilou and Bienfu save Velvet and Laphi from a daemon!

What could have been...

Laphi and Velvet eat their apples...

Laphi and Velvet with Eizen and Aifread looking on...

Laphi's eating his Mabo Curry with Rokurou and Shigure at a table behind them.

Eleanor's worried, looking at Velvet and Laphi tired from all the steps they had to climb. Oscar and Teresa are in the background, finished with their ascent.

Velvet and Laphi lost, pointing in opposite directions...

They're now at Southgand, Velvet looking at the Grim dolls while Laphi sees Grim walking.

Laphi picks up the rhinostagros!

The references in the credits mentions all the mothership and escort titles in the Tales series.

Laphi and Velvet run to Meirchio...

They see the northern lights...

Aaaaaahhhh, oh my god, it's baby Phi!

They're out prickleboar hunting with Arthur looking on...

Niko and Velvet are prepping up a pie.

The last sketch is of Phi, or Maotelus, seeing Laphi and Velvet staring at the horizon.

Part 175: Maotelus (3)


Eizen: "So was that flame... your true power as an Empyrean?"
Magilou: "Daemons, malevolence. Did that fire get rid of it all?"
Rokurou: "No. I'm still very much a daemon."

Laphicet: "The Silver Flame has the power to cleanse a soul of its malevolence, and change a daemon back into a human. But it doesn't have the power to change people's hearts."

It's another chance at life, according to Eleanor.

Rokurou: "Sorry. Looks like my sins run too deep to fix."
Laphicet: "That's fine. It's part of who you are, Rokurou." No wonder why he didn't change back. Honestly, I wouldn't want him to turn back.
Rokurou: "You're still a softy, aren't ya?"

Magilou points out the exorcists are gone, but malevolence is still there. Look in the mirror, Magilou.

Laphicet: "Yes it will. Even still...humanity will never lose its hope...or its prayers for a better future."
Magilou: "Well said!"

Eizen says the malakhim have their free will back! Plus, some of them are willing to help out.

Eleanor: "I will spread the word. This world is now under the protection of the Empyrean, Laphicet."

Laphicet suggests not saying that name. Eleanor agrees, since Velvet gave him that name.

Rokurou: "Okay, what should we call you, then?"

"Call me by the name Eleanor gave me. 'One who lives.' That's what Laphicet means...translated into the ancient language..."

The bright ring of light spreads around the world.

"It's Maotelus."

Part 175: Maotelus (2)


Another cutscene.

All the daemons are turning back into humans...

Dyle changes back!

Kamoana and Medissa also change back, hugging each other!

Griffin turns back, so do the dogs!

Zaveid looks up, bitter. He knows Theodora could have been saved...poor Zaveid... :(

The remaining members of Magilou's Menagerie return to the Empyrean's Throne.

Eleanor: "We're really back on the ground..."

She turns around and sees a dragon!

Eleanor: "The Dragon of Light!"

Magilou: "Good grief. Velvet's recklessness rubbed off on him. Hasn't it, Laphicet?"

That's him...

Eleanor can't believe it.

Eizen: "That is his Empyrean form. It's also proof of his determination."
Eleanor: "Like an oath!?"
Laphicet: "Yes. Do I frighten you now, Eleanor?"

She smiles and shakes her head. I'm going to miss them...

Part 175: Maotelus (1)


The four Empyreans rise!

"For her to seal an Empyrean all by herself....Humans contain more surprises than I expected."

Eizen points that out.

Magilou: "Now you show up. Pretty irresponsible, if you ask me." Well, they come and go as they please...

"You're mistaken. Without Innominat, the balance of our power will crumble."

"The elements will clash in violence and ruin. The world will take millennia to recover from the destruction." That's Teresa in a past life.

"To save the world from destruction, a new Empyrean is needed. A malak of great strength, and indomitable will." Is that Melchior talking?

Everyone turns to Laphicet.

Laphicet: "I'll do it. I'll be your new Empyrean."

Oh....

Shigure the Empyrean: "You are part of Innominat. You're not lacking in strength. But the question here is one of your intent."
Teresa the Empyrean: "Just what do you wish for this world? What will you bring unto its denizens?"

Laphicet raises the apple.

Laphicet: "I want people to have another chance! A chance for them to right the wrongs born of their fallible spirits! To give those who dream of flying the time they need to rest their wings!" Wings again...

Laphicet: "So that in their strength, their weakness...their cruelty, their kindness...these imperfect humans will one day stretch their wings toward the horizon!"

Empyreans: "Make your dream a reality, young Empyrean."

A pillar of light surrounds him.

Laphicet: "My gift to the world...the Silver Flame!"

Part 174: Prepare To... (5)


Laphicet: "I don't care about myself! I'm not scared of dying, as long as I'm with you!"

She tosses him the fortune apple.

Velvet: "Good. Then die."

I'm laughing a bit since that exchange reminded me of a certain meme.

Velvet: "But only after eating. Living. Doing everything you want to in life."

Velvet chuckles a bit.

Velvet: "I really am horrible, aren't I?" At least you're honest about yourself, Velvet.

Velvet: "But despite all that, you still saved me. With your unwavering kindness and strength."
Laphicet: "I didn't do anything... Velvet, you were the one who—"
Velvet: "You must have seen it during our travels. Humans spend their lives in constant struggle... that's why they end up making so many mistakes. Even my poor brother." She looks at the Shepherd when she said that.

Velvet: "That's why I'm asking this of you...Please, live. I was the cause of so much chaos and destruction...help the world I ruined. Help people like me. Help the weak. This is... my last, selfish request."

That's the opposite of selfishness, that "selfish" wish is. Laphicet cries foul.

Velvet: "I'm truly... sorry..."

Laphicet eats the apple, and forgives her!

Laphicet: "Velvet, I love you!" Oh my god...
Velvet: "Thank you...I...I love you too, Phi..."

They're gone...

Eleanor: "His power is running wild!"

Rokurou: "No one is keeping his power in check anymore! This is bad..."

Eizen runs to Innominat!

Velvet: "Wait! I'll do it."

Innominat: "I endured it all...! Even though I was scared! Even though it hurt!"

She hugs him.

Velvet: "I know."

He, or Laphi, cries, talking about his medicine, and not eating for the whole day...

Laphi/Innominat: "I tried so hard... Why won't you give me this!? I hate you! I hate you, Velvet!"
Velvet: "Laphicet... you tried really hard. But you don't have to fight anymore."

He starts to devour her.

Velvet: "It's time for us to rest, Laphi."

She pulls out her arm and eats him...

Innominat: "Vel...vet..."

They're devouring each other...

Magilou: "So that's it... Velvet will let Innominat devour her forever, with her forever devouring him in return. She will seal him while keeping him alive. An infinite contradiction, a perpetual cycle of destruction."
Laphicet: "Velvet, you can't!"

Velvet: "You and I are part of Innominat, Phi. If he dies, both of us will die too. I dug my own grave. But...but you..."

Laphicet runs to her.

Shepherd: "Spoken...like a true hero..."
Velvet: "It's what you told me once, long ago."
Shepherd: "On the day... of the Opening..."

I forgot he said that. It's been eight months...

Shepherd: "Velvet...the Arthur you knew died that day. It was always there, in the back of my mind. 'If only Celica and my son hadn't died that day.'" He's feeling guilty of what happened to Celica and Laphicet.

Shepherd: "'If only it had been you two [Velvet and Laphi] instead.'"

There's the charm he made for Celica, hanging on his own sword.

Velvet: "I thought the same thing. So many times. If it had been us, then I know...I know you would have fought to save the world for us."
Shepherd: "It's true...I wanted to save everyone..."

Tears fall from Velvet...

Shepherd: "...Such a pity."

He falls.

Laphicet: "Goodbye."
Rokurou: "It's over."

Innominat's at the corner, starving...

Magilou: "No, it's not over yet..."

There's another final boss!!!! And he is very hungry...

Oh god, Innominat's getting creepy...his power is unleashed!
