Illustrated by Posuka Demizu
Now that the world has been turned upside down, the Ratri clan desperately try to reestablish a similar government and farm system to put the world back to what it was. They plan on making all the farms like Lambda so none of the children they raise as food will have free will or rise up against them again. They prepare to make one last stand against Emma and her friends back where it all began: Grace Field House. Mom has now become Grandma, the head of the whole farm system, and she wields enormous power as the leader of the Sisters who work the farms.
Reading this volume, it is palpable that the end is near. The different factions are coming together, and it's fitting that the last stand is back at Grace Field House. Throughout this series, I've been thinking about (and Shirai has been reminding us) about all the kids that Emma left behind, so this arc is a chance to bring some closer to the whole story and to revisit and wrap up what happened with all the kids that Emma and Ray left behind. There are still plenty of answers left to be given, and two more volumes to get them all in. There does seem to be an uptick in the action since the end is so near, so this will fly in the face of several previous volumes where things were a bit slower than might have been completely necessary.
