(Repotama is an online magazine covering news on everything anime, and we have recently started trying out posting articles in English! If you enjoyed this article, we’d really appreciate it if you’d consider sharing it and following us on Twitter!)
Original work by Coolkyoushinja and Johanne and serialized in Kodansha’s Shonen Magazine R and Magapoke, this story is “the fairy tail that everyone knows… with one extra ‘peach’.”
This time, we’ve finally arrived at the final episode to be aired! The synopsis and scene preview of the 12th episode “Resolutions and Goodbyes” of TV anime Peach Boy Riverside (first broadcast on Thursday, September 16 2021) have been released.
【Episode 12 “Resolutions and Goodbyes”】
In her battle with the tree Oni, Sally seeks to remove the barriers of race and tribe, and makes an appeal by saying “For everyone living here in this place, let’s all get along together!”
The Emperor Oni who had earlier confronted Mikoto also appeals to the idea of Oni and humans living in harmony together…
But the tree Oni flatly rejects the offer. Coming from the mouth of the tree Oni, what is the reason why humans and Oni cannot be reconciled…?
This anime is being broadcast on TV in its “on-air version”, which shuffles the chronological order of the episodes that are broadcasted into a nonlinear order.
※This week’s broadcast will be the “on-air version” of episode 12 (episode 6 of the “time series version”).
Director Shigeru Ueda has also talked in an interview about why he decided to air the series in nonlinear order. For more details, please see the official site:

Once upon a time in a certain land, there lived an old man and an old woman.
The old man went to the mountains to cut grass, and the old woman went to the river to wash clothes… (skipping ahead a little)
Eventually the demons were all destroyed, but it was said that more demons still roamed other lands…
So the peach boy Momotaro set off across the sea.
It was amazing that they were all defeated, and it should have been a cause for joy.
However, the one thing that was off…
Killing them was fun.
This is just hypothetical, but…
Suppose there was more than one big peach in this story…
Suppose that the peach that floated to Japan wasn’t alone…
