Peach Boy Riverside Season 1 just completed the course last week, and fans are crammed with sadness and excitement. Sadness to say goodbye to the anime series and excitement for the next season. However, before jumping straight into the speculations of the second season, there are many questions that need to be answered in context with the first season. The biggest problem with the show was that the order of release of the episodes was non-chronological. Due to this, the finale episode aired way back in the sixth week.
In the twelfth week, what fans got was an older episode. Nonetheless, the story of the episode beautifully merged with the context of the season and concluded the season well enough. So, in Peach Boy Riverside Episode 12, Sally fought the tree Ogre all by herself. And she managed to defeat the giant monster. But what will be the consequences of this huge victory? Here is a brief explanation of the final episode of PBR.
Peach Boy Riverside S1: Ending Explained!
In the finale episode, Sally, Winnie, and Hawthorne go to the nearby village to defeat the tree Ogre that had been consuming the common villagers. However, looking at the giant statue of the monster, Sally was taken aback for a few moments. As she regained her sanity, she challenged the monsters to stop the wrongdoings and leave the village. The tree Ogre got enraged at the confrontation, and he caught Sally in its branches. He puller her closer to his monstrous eyes and asked her to curse ogres once again.
Sally bravely replied that humans and demons could, in fact, coexist without any bloodshed. The tree Orge laughed hysterically at her naivety and asked her who started this mad war in the first place. Moreover, the tree Ogre went on to monologue about how humans have always looked down upon demons as heartless creatures. For ages, they have been selfishly killing ogres in the name of defense. But his words left no mark upon the humans, and the people unanimously chose violence. Peach Boy Riverside changed the direction to action from this point.
Hence, the most destructive battle of the series commenced. The battle continued for a long while. But Sally managed to save the day for everyone by using the skills she had learned from Winnie. The Tree Ogre was gone despite being the decisive one. Besides, the elves of the village paid their respects to Sally for killing the tree monster. Later in the episode, Sumeragi revealed through a monologue that he was the one who awakened the tree monster in the elf village. Mikey reacted with shock and tremor to this revelation. The next morning, Sally woke up to a welcoming morning at the Inn. Moved by the Ogre’s words, she was still thinking about the previous day.
What Will Happen Next?
Even though Peach Boy Riverside has one of the most disordered release schedules, the last episode still played out as a perfect end to the story. By the end of the episode, Sally confronted Hawthorn about her suspicions. She reclaimed that killing the tree monster might not just be enough. They must find out who was behind the awakening of the monster. Thus, she packed her things and left the Inn immediately. During the farewell, she promised the elf community that she would use her newfound powers and skills only for the good of humanity. The further events fans have already watched previously.
Now, in the upcoming season, which may return soon enough, fans will see Sally’s journey as the protector of humanity. She will continue to serve the interest of the people. Moreover, the battle against the monsters and demons will also find a middle ground in the near future. It is most likely that the story would only hit the conclusion when the madness of war ends with a peace treaty. Stay tuned with The Anime Daily to get more season updates on anime and mangas.
