DEAD MOUNT DEATH PLAY PART 2 PLOT
In the finale of Dead Mount Death Play Part 2, “Corpse God wearily deconstructs the Temple and tells Polka that the two rooftop intruders escaped but not the girl in the raincoat, who has been caught by the spirit of the Shinoyama maid killed by Know.
Meanwhile, a confident man views tweets about the flock of hands and the Shakuzawa skeletons concurrently with incoming posts on the Bastards’ anonymous message board.
The Bastards seem generally convinced that this is otherworldly power (some suggest necromancy, others elementalism, others sacred arts) that is their right and duty to claim for themselves.
The man agrees that they must search for this power with every tool at their disposal, adding that they can “kill multiple birds with one stone” while sacrificing them as well.
He remarks on the irony of the inheritors of Hosorogi’s will gathering in the building where the Bastards disposed of Hosorogi.
Iwanome, in his apartment and pajamas, instructs Yatsu to secure the scene. The blonde female bouncer returns to Youtoukorou and informs Lisa Kuraki that the police are on the move.
Lisa supposes that Shinjuku is due for another commotion.Misaki Sakimiya sits up in bed, briefly awoken, then falls back asleep.
In a living room, an abnormally tall young man checks his phone and tells his sister, the one sitting on the loveseat, not the one gazing out the window, that “things are getting interesting.”
The television switches on, displaying video footage of a distant flock of massive hands undulating in a city. The sister’s slow smile reveals a set of fangs.
Dead Mount Death Play Part 1 covered the first 33 chapters of manga, which means Dead Mount Death Play Part 2 will begin by adapting 34.
In a flashback to the Corpse God’s childhood, a young Corpse God wearing a skull mask receives a basic necromancy lesson from Easlies Swordfrail on “netherworld overflow” and constructing a temple.
A process of calling forth air from “the other side” to recreate an invisible, tangible ‘presence’ that even those without the Evil Eye can sense.
If a necromancer devotes enough time to the ritual, they can even use this process over a magic spell to disorient others.
The Corpse God calls forth as much air as he can and appears disappointed that he could not produce more, but his master assures him there is no need to rush: if he continues honing his skills, he should someday be able to envelop an entire castle with this ability.
