SYNOPSIS

Grujios bombards Rom with hallucinations so he can read his memories and finds out he is an alien. A telepathic message from Leina wakes Rom up but he is promptly attacked by Jingi. Jim and Carlina are also under attack from Kina and Korol. Outside Jet has returned to Elie in order to rally the townsfolk and raise more support. Borun reacts angrily to his daughter going to the castle, leading Rod to accuse him of cowardice. Grujios meanwhile reveals he knows his prisoner is really Leina and not Carlina, and it was part of his plan for luring Rom to his death.

Shaben and Bifa join Jingi in attacking Kenryû but Jim and Carlina also arrive. Kenryû slices Jingi in half but he is rejoined instantly while Shaben knocks the Wolf Sword away. Thanks to a distraction courtesy of Carlina's key he gets loose and regains it, using the blade to shatter the illusion around them. He uses the Shot Slash attack to blast the reanimated Gyandlar clean out of the castle. In Elie Borun reveals the secret of his power is a mini black hole but claims it is too dangerous to use on the Gyandlar. In the castle, Grujios finally arrives to challenge Kenryû. Thanks to Gadess' power any wounds he receives heal instantly. However, Kenryru is able to shatter his armour. His snakelike real form attacks Leina but Rom merges with Baikanfu and kicks him through the castle wall. Even that doesn't kill him and he reappears with his undead minions. However, Borun arrives on Jet and explains how to use the key to open the black hole and vanquish the Gyandlar. Leina thanks Rom for being such a good brother as everyone celebrates.


NOTES

Rom remembers a space flight with Kirai, Leina and an unnamed brother when he was young that reveals he isn't originally from Cronos.

REVIEW

Nowhere near as good as the first part - much more talky, and the subplot with Jet and Drill's team disappears as they just bugger off back to Elie.

Nevertheless, anything that gets rid of Grujios is fine by me.
