Heavenly Delusion Episode 12 Review: The Truth Comes Out

Heavenly Delusion Episode 12 Review: The Truth Comes Out

The latest episode of Tengoku Daimakyo was a harrowing but visually beautiful experience. The episode featured the reunion of Kiruko and Robin, Maru’s solitude, and the nursery being hit by a disaster. With only one episode left this season, there are still many questions to be answered.

This episode deals with some heavy themes, reader’s discretion is adviced.

In the nursery, Mina’s plan is underway, Tokio is missing, and Mimihime makes it outside. Something did fall, as she prophesized in one of the previous episodes, but no one knows what it was. Sawatari is freaking out because he mixed up the babies, which further solidifies the theory that one of the babies is a clone. The biggest surprise for me was the Director. I did not expect her to get up and start running.

Kiruko and Maru finally made it to Takehara Academy, but not before Kiruko met up with Robin. Robin freaked out when he saw Kiruko, and it seems that they have a history. And that assault scene was uncomfortable to watch. Kiruko’s emotions were on full display, and it was clear that she was feeling hope, joy, and then betrayal. For Haruki, there was also the added dimension of feeling like he had failed to protect his sister.

It is interesting to note that the two main events of the episode: Mimihime and Shiro going outside and Robin and Kiruko are shown concurrently. This leads us to believe that they are happening at the same time, but when the children make it outside it is a sunny, warm day, while Kiruko’s assault is happening during the night. This confirms that these stories are not taking place in the same time era.

The tomatoes inside the garden are becoming ripe, which may be a sign that it’s time for the children to go outside of the outside and become free of the shackles imposed by the Director and other adults. Robin mentions a garden that was once in the place of the water plant, but we do not know if he is hiding more information.

Personal Thoughts and review:

  • I think Tengoku Daimakyo/Heavenly Delusion is one of the best mystery/thriller anime in recent times. It is visually stunning, the story is engaging, and the characters are well-developed. I would definitely recommend it to fans of dystopian anime.
  • Although I felt very uncomfortable with Robin’s scene, the masterful storytelling made it a great episode.
  • The visuals were stunning, and the story was both harrowing and beautiful. I am eager to see how it all plays out in the season finale. I am also interested in the symbolism that was used throughout the episode. The tomatoes in the garden, for example, could represent the children’s innocence. The fact that they are becoming ripe could be a sign that it is time for them to leave their innocence behind and face the harsh realities of the world.
  • I think the season finale will be a big one. I expect that we will learn more about the Director’s plans, and I am also curious to see how the children will react to the harsh realities of the outside world. I think it will be a bittersweet ending, but I am confident that it will be satisfying.
  • I am also curious about Robin’s past. He seems to have a dark history with Kiruko, and I am eager to learn more about it. Overall, I thought this was a great episode. It was visually stunning, the story was engaging, and the symbolism was thought-provoking. I am excited to see how it all plays out in the season finale.
