Peach Boy Riverside Episode 3 Spoilers
In episode 2, after Sett, the Walrus Oni, takes out Frau, Sari steps in. She easily blocks Sett’s punch, which immensely surprises the Oni. He then tries to use his Oni blast on his opponent, creating a long line of pure destruction. However, Sari and Frau remain untouched. Sari then kills Sett with one slash across his upper body with her short sword. Meanwhile, Meki meets a stranger, who she soon realizes is Mikoto Kibitsu, who is going around wiping out entire Oni settlements. Mikoto waits until Meki has fully recovered to fight with her. Her Oni blast does not affect Mikoto, who easily defeats her. However, he spares her life after realizing that she is quite similar to him. Instead of taking Meki’s life, Mikoto cuts off her horn and scoops out her eye, turning her into a human for all intent and purpose.
Since they have defeated Sett, the behavior of the Rimdarl Kingdom residents has completely changed toward Sari and Frau. Almost immediately, they have become celebrated heroes of the kingdom. Hawthorn asks them for their help with Meki, who has been found outside the castle. Later, Sari learns Mikoto had been there. She leaves with Frau and Meki, knowing that the latter would be executed otherwise. Hawthorn follows them and tries to convince them to come back. However, suddenly, a massive Oni blast wipes out the entire Rimdarl Kingdom except for Hawthorn. In episode 3, Hawthorn, now homeless and grieving, might join Sari’s party. Meki might recognize Somenki, the Oni that destroyed Rimdarl.
