I enter the second half of the stable time loop started in Part 39, being a bystander to the mortal wound that ultimately kills Amaterasu’s past self, Shiranui. Then Oki gets his baggage together and he and I defeat the Twin Demons once and for all.
Also, between a cutscene featuring a duplicate sword floating in the background and three separate instances of the dungeon having tWO SAVE POINTS WITHIN SPITTING DISTANCE OF EACH OTHER, I have a bit of a mental break here during this episode. Like, what bright spark designed this level??
