Chapter 95: ROMANCIA, raws from HiranoMoe.
It’s 30 years in the future. Integra’s
a pirate wearing an eyepatch, and still kicking ass.
Seras is the new Alucard. Heinkel is the new Anderson.
There’s a random new guy leading Iscariot. Integra has adopted one of Sir Penwood’s (grand?)kids to be her heir.
In keeping with the long-neglected traditions of early chapters, there is slapstick. There’s also a random panty shot. (Seras, you were doing so well…)
Oh, and Alucard comes back.
The end? Integra finger-feeds him. Using blood from her ring finger. (Symbolic, much?)
I’m so used to manga endings fizzling out, dropping balls, copping out, and otherwise making me cringe that I admit I had low expectations. But this, even untranslated, is making me feel all warm and fluffy inside.
I’m as much of a sucker for time skips as I am for flashbacks. On top of that, Penwood gets credit, Heinkel gets (mangled) face time, Integra continues to bring the awesome, and there is lovely casual Seras plus sexy random AxI! The parallels to the end of the much-maligned TV series are unmissable and wonderful.
In short: this makes me happy.
