ES Manga Ch 06 Merihim Mathile Alastor exchange

Merihim infuriated by the exchange between Mathilde and Alastor.

Merihim and Mathilde locked eyes and prepared for battle. Merihim admired Mathilde and assumed that she had stolen the Tendōkyū from the famous "Soaring Tower of Quintessence" Gavida, cursing the Crimson Lord for his untimely blunder. Mathilde manifested a sword and shield with her flames. She had a brief exchange with Alastor which infuriated Merihim as he drew his own sword.

ES Manga Ch 06 Illuyanka Bakushoheki Mathilde

Illuyanka firing Wall of Miasmal Screen at Mathilde.

Illuyanka thought that Merihim was being childish and recounted that Merihim was in love with Mathilde, the enemy, remembering one such battle the two had had. In that battle, Merihim had said that their sword battles were a connection between them, to the annoyance of Alastor and Wilhelmina. Illuyanka thought that the war wasn't only between Merihim and Mathilde, and he fired a concentrated spire-like blast of Wall of Miasmal Screen at the Tendōkyū and Mathilde.

As the spire approached, Mathilde tapped the cracked Crypta with her sword. Suddenly, ribbons twined around the spire and bent it, causing it to crash through a nearby mountain. Pleased, Illuyanka greeted Wilhelmina and Tiamat. Wilhelmina emerged from behind Mathilde, impressed that Illuyanka had recovered from his injuries in a mere 5 days.

Powers and Abilities UsedEdit

Unrestricted SpellsEdit



  • Mathilde: "——Now, let's start the battle."
  • Merihim (thinking about Mathilde): "Once again, together with joy it accumulates, your figure before me. Oh, how she suits the flames and rubble. She burns, and destroys, as if the embodiment of action. This woman cannot be expressed with the word "beauty"."
  • Merihim (to Mathilde, flashback): "Do you understand? Mathilde Saint-Omer. This sword stroke! That attack. Even the crossing of our swords is no more than one form of connection between me and you, the two of us!!"
