The Moon Cell Automaton (ムーンセル・オートマトン?) Craft Essence in Fate/Grand Order

The Moon Cell (ムーンセル, Mūn Seru?), also called the Holy Grail, Eye of God, and Divine Automatic Recording Device, is a massive collection of photonic crystals within the Moon that comprises a giant supercomputer of sorts. It acts as the main setting of Fate/EX.


The existence of the Moon Cell is not known to average humans, and other than the existence of the Moon Cell itself, the world of Fate/stay night is said to be exactly the same as the World of Fate/EX up until the 1970s.[1] The Moon Cell has nothing to do with Crimson Moon and can be said to be unable to fit within the world of Tsukihime without making the story fall apart, but the Fate/EX-universe equivalent of Crimson Moon, the "Brain of the Planet", should still be living.[2][3]

From the dawn of history, mankind has been in contact with the Moon Cell on and off, and were always able to access it through their spirits or souls, with the Moon Cell frequently inviting humans inside of it to "come and teach it."[4] Old world magi notably could connect with the Moon Cell's interior portions using meditation without radio waves.[5][4] It was officially discovered and revealed to the wider world in 1973 by a wizard employed by the United Nations.[6] Once the Moon Cell's location was revealed, everyone tried to claim it as their own, so as a result the Harway family prevented space-travel to prevent anyone from landing on the moon.[4]


Unique to the world of Fate/EX, the Moon Cell's photonic crystalWPs are shown to have been created 4.6 billion years before the Age of Man, making it a construct formed roughly 100 million years before even the formation of the Earth. It holds the Moon Cell Automaton (ムーンセル・オートマトン, Mūnseru Ōtomaton?), a large computer-like construct created by an unknown civilization one hundred million years before the existence of the Earth or the Moon. It has recorded everything that has happened on the planet since its formation, and it keeps the records much like Swirl of the Root. It is the oldest known object in the solar system, and it has watched the Earth since its creation. The exact formation of the planets and how the crystals were integrated into the moon is unknown, but scientists know it to be an observation device constructed by an alien civilization of non-human intelligent life.[5]

This great mineral vein is located within an extremely large hole comparable to a several-kilometer-wide crack boring through the moon itself. The diameter of the crystals themselves reaches up to 30 kilometers. It seems that, apart from its surface portions, the moon itself is made up of these photonic crystals. The time of its initial operation is unknown, but an estimate based on radioactive carbon dating approximates the moon to have been formed 4.55 billion years ago, while the photonic crystals were created 4.6 billion years ago.[7]

Photonic crystals are material that can be found on Earth,[4] crystals that, on a microscopic level, regularly alternate between layers of high and low refractive indexWP. In this way, it is a substance that can control the transmission of light, making it a valuable material for a quantum computer using light,[7] as well as the manufacture of nanomachines.[4] Humanity has only managed to successfully make photonic crystals a few centimeters in length since intensive study of them began in the 20th century,[7] with the Harway family only able to make a unit less than a centimeter in size while Atlas has been slightly more successful, but only by a very marginal percentage.[4] The core of the Moon Cell is a much larger photonic crystal, about 3000 kilometers in length and using light as its storage medium, as well as all of its high-level data control systems to transmit data and system commands.[4] The giant photonic crystal slumbering beneath the moon can be considered a supercomputer of enormous size, incredible complexity, and immeasurable processing power that was created from such nanoparticles. Although most supercomputer development was abandoned in the 2010s in favor of shifting the focus to cloud computing, the processing power of the all digital media on Earth combined cannot hope to match the capabilities of the substance.[7] According to Twice H. Pieceman, the Moon Cell's core is made of the purest type of photonic crystal, a material that can act like the crystals used on holographyWP to recording media.[8]

It scans the entire Earth about once per nanosecond and compiles the results of its scan in its database. It is a pseudo-intelligent being that has the supreme ability to affect the outside world with its internal calculations. As an eye that observes the Earth, it acts as a database of human history that faithfully simulates all life on Earth and is capable of providing a definite prediction of the future. It is a processor with a massive memory that has recorded the habits, history, ideas, and even the souls of humanity. As it can also affect the outside world with its calculations, it has the power to "grant wishes." In this way, it can be thought of as a Pandora's Box that promises the next stage of evolution. It promises god-like power to those intelligent lifeforms who have become technologically advanced enough to scan the interior of the moon.[5]

After it was discovered, it managed to hack into every computer system around the world and connect to them within two seconds of contact through the static satellites managed by the Western European Plutocracy. This made all Internet security systems moot, as anyone could get into any other computer via the passageways through the Moon Cell as long as they could connect to the Internet.[9] In order to determine who is truly worthy of using its power, the Moon Cell began the Holy Grail War, where "spirit hackers" who have hacked themselves into the SE.RA.PH (see below) fight for the right to use the Moon Cell.

In Fate/EXTELLA, there exists a ring known as the Regalia. As proof of Hakuno Kishinami's kingship, they have obtained the Regalia ring and became admin of the Moon Cell. Realizing that if the Regalia is destroyed, and the Moon Cell left vulnerable, Hakuno makes a last resort decision to split themselves into three parts; Mind, Body, and Soul. This action shocks Archimedes, believing that they wouldn't even be so desperate, but as a result of their actions, the Regalia is separated into three pieces.


Near Side[]


The Serial Phantasm, abbreviated SE.RA.PH, also known as The Photonic Abyss and Angelica Cage, is an artificial environment within the Moon Cell located inside of a spiritual computer system called Automaton (オートマトン?). The system is similar to Akasha in the terms of holding the "stores and archives" of all human history.

The SE.RA.PH is responsible for the summoning of the Servants during Fate/EXTRA. The SE.RA.PH restricts the exit until the tournament participants are reduced to one, as per the Moon Cell's rules. It is also responsible for the existence of the NPCs and all areas in the tournament. The area within it called the "Moon Cell" is a representation of the Moon Cell's core, and the golden globe within the cube is the main core--the core of the Moon Cell itself. Servants generated by the Moon Cell are called to protect the core, even at the cost of violating the contract to their Master. Servants are required to stop their Master should they try to destroy the system, and those who prioritize their Master over the Moon Cell will be deleted from its records. It is, however, possible to fool the Moon Cell's surveillance, enabling Hakuno Kishinami's Servant to protect him/her.

Holy Grail War (Fate/EXTRA)[]

The landscapes generated by SE.RA.PH are all independent Reality Marbles, an extremely powerful feat. The school of the preliminaries, the school for the main tournament, the Arena, and the Coliseum are each individual Reality Marbles. Even the greatest supercomputer on Earth would be unable to sustain a single Reality Marble for any great length of time.[10]

Far Side[]

There also exists the Far Side of the Moon (月の裏側, Tsuki no Uragawa?), an imaginary space known as the trash bin that is used for storing malicious information and imaginary numbers. Sealed off as "Not For Use" information, it is a higher dimension where the light within the photon crystals is jumbled. It is the “exterior of the world”, and can be called the "Garden of the Fallen" built from imaginary numbers in contrast to the Near Side being a cell where the "light of heavenly fire" is imprisoned.[12] Due to his power, Gilgamesh is not allowed to appear on the Near Side of the Moon, so he sleeps in the Far Side instead. Nothing else should be able to exist there because it is the territory of nil, and intelligent life forms should not be allowed or be able to exist there. It is not within normal time, allowing for a series of communications over eighteen days from Earth to take less than a microsecond within the timeframe of the Moon Cell.

Due to BB surfacing and gaining power as an Advanced A.I., she begins an extensive reconstruction and periods of resetting to work towards her goals. This allows for someone to contact Gilgamesh even when it should be impossible. The end result of her work is Cursed Cutting Crater, a real space in the present, past, and future. Establishing it as a "place", even Masters can exist there. It is not possible to hack the Moon Cell however much time is spent, but she is able to take control of it by placing herself in “unlimited time” through the power of the primordial goddesses she has taken into herself.[13]

The Zero Dark[]

14,000 years ago, the Umbral Star detected Earth and it's civilizations and sent a fragment of itself, containing Velber 02, which crashed into the Far Side of the Moon, infiltrating the Moon Cell. Velber 02 attacked the Moon Cell, causing huge damage, but was defeated, and was quarantined in an area which became known as the Zero Dark. Using the full power of the reformed Regalia, the darkness in the Zero Dark can be made even deeper, so that the cavern containing the White Titan is sealed away permanently.

    Q: Is there any relationship between the Moon Cell and the Crimson Moon? Does the Moon Cell exist in universes outside of EXTRA?

    A: Moon cell is something that is only in EXTRA, and it does not have anything to do with the Crimson Moon. However, in the world of EXTRA, the "Brain of the Planet" (Archetype Earth's title) who is equivalent to the Crimson Moon should still be living somewhere.

    Taiga: As in the works of TYPE-MOON, even where the works are different, world settings are often shared, would it be true to state that outside of the world of EXTRA, the Moon Cell does not exist?
    Sakura: Indeed, it does not exist. This would also be the reason that Fate/EXTRA is referred to as a World of 'if.' In the first place, were the Moon Cell to exist within it, Tsukihime -- which shares the same world settings -- would from its very premise collapse.
    Saber: Mu? But I'm of the impression that Tsukihime characters appeared within the primary material of the game. Was that a hallucination?
    Sakura: It wasn't a hallucination, but -- the matter is that there is no direct continuity of lineage from the History of Man that exists as of Tsukihime. To put it bluntly, it was fanservice.

    Moon Cell [Circumstances]
    Official name: Moon Cell Automaton.
    An energy-storing body discovered inside the moon.
    An artifact constructed by non-human intelligent life.
    A super computer that is the setting for Fate/EXTRA.

    Up to a seventh level has been structurally identified in cyberspace, and the first level, the surface of the moon, is accessible by even normal hackers.
    Going beyond the inner second level is difficult for non-wizardsccheck, there is no way to get inside physically.
    Without soul transference, without having a data body converted into virtual spiritrons, it isnft possible to look into the abyss.
    In the case of the magi of the old world, they had made contact with the moon cell as a part of meditation without having to use radio waves.

    The Moon Cell is, in a manner of speaking, an eye that observes the Earth.
    A processor that faithfully simulates all life on Earth and is capable of providing a definite prediction of the future.
    A database of humanity. A massive memory recording their habits, history, ideas, even their souls. A pandorafs box that promises the next stage of evolution, promises god-like power to those intelligent lifeforms who have become technologically advanced enough to scan the interior of the moon.

    Originally it was an observation device left behind by an alien civilization. It had only recorded the nature of life on Earth, but after many years it came to possess its current abilities.
    Though an observation device initially, it could not leave anything unseen in its observations.

    (Heisenbergfs uncertainty principle. The observer determines an event by observing it. What isnft observed is not certain).

    An observation device must be fair. If it is to observe, there must be nothing unseen. Thus, it required capabilities for knowing everything about the Earth.
    To record all things without bias, it needed performance greater than that of an observation device.

    And so, it had made a giant leap in evolution.

    It had enhanced its functions to the point where it went from making observations to surveillance, even understanding the workings of the planet.

    The greater its enhancements, the more complicated its administration policy.
    It created many terminals and even made artificial intelligences to manage functions for each section.
    (These were later utilized for the NPCs and advanced AIs of the Holy Grail War)
    However, it firmly refused to install an artificial intelligence for itself.

    The observer must not have a mind.
    For the observer to have a mind would result in the meaning of things being decided by the observer.
    Thus, it kept to maintaining its absolute objectivity as an eye, doing so while always dismantling the emerging semblances of sapience that it had incorporated to administrate its functions.

    Thus, this computer has no conception of good and evil, no desire for the future, not even an outcome.

    It is simply there.

    A type-writer left behind by god.

    An observation lens bored in the moon.

    Later, the crystal ball of dreams would come to be called this.

    An eye of the moon.

    A bottomless Klein cube.

    An ownerless Type Moon which has read all of this planet.

    Moon Cell's Discovery [Incident]
    Moon Cell was discovered in 1973.
    After the magus of the old world were cut off from their mana, a wizard employed by the United Nations managed to infiltrate Moon Cell, and Moon Cell’s existence was revealed to all.
    The following are the words from a hacker who returned alive from Moon Cell’s first layer.

    “That thing on the Moon is a computational device that could never be produced by present-day mankind.
    There is no physical way to infiltrate it. Even if you were to fly up to the Moon on a rocket, it would be impossible to access the device.
    The thing on the Moon is simply too different from us humans, a civilization that relies on physical matters. It is something impossible to analyze or understand using existing human technology and language system.
    However, through a spirit-like information body, even if the format of information is different, understanding its “meaning” is still possible.”

    After that, this astounding supercomputer came to be considered as the product of an otherworldly civilization, and the West Europe Plutocracy started to monitor it.

    Far Side of the Moon [Circumstances]
    The setting of CCC.
    If one thinks of the moon as having two sides, the side facing Earth is the Near Side, while the opposite...the side that cannot be observed from the Earth is the Far Side.
    While Fate/EXTRA starts from the first floor of the Near Side and heads for the seventh floor ~ the core, CCC starts from the Far Side (no concept of floors). Though the path may differ, the end goal for both is the core of the Moon Cell.
    The Far Side of the Moon is a place where data deemed unnecessary by the Moon Cell is kept, similar to a dumping ground.
    It is imaginary number space that continuously takes in data categorized as malignant information――that which is nothing but harmful to humans as well as intelligent lifeforms in general.
    The Far Side is territory so taboo that even the “Eye” in the core of the Moon Cell is forbidden to enter.
    Data that have entered this place, after becoming engulfed in humanity’s malignance and losing sight of their purpose of existence, ultimately become deprived of meaning.
    The Far Side can also be said to be an ocean that has amassed the pollutants that the Moon Cell accrues as it makes its observations.


  13. [v] Fate/EXTRA CCC - BB (Moon Cancer) Matrix

    Class: Moon Cancer
    Name: BB
    Master: None
    Noble Phantasm: Cursed Cutting Crater (C. C. C.)
    Keyword: Advanced Level AI, Khakkhara of Domination
    Strength: ★, Endurance: ★, Agility: ★, Magic: ★, Luck: ★
    Golden Grail: EX, Self-Modification: EX, Potnia Theron: EX


    01 - Cursed Cutting Crater (C. C. C.)
    An attack on the world by BB in control of the Moon Cell.
    Also called the spiritron imaginary pit.

    A World Purge through event rewriting that makes maximum use of the EX skill "Conception of All Animals"(Potnia Theron) BB has acquired.

    The goddess who is the mother of earth mother goddesses that created earth is, in other words, the 'root' that created all creation. This anti-world Noble Phantasm outputs that information through an ultra-precise 3D printer and crushes the present world with the world the user desires.

    The space eroded by BB becomes imaginary space and a curse that consumes reality. "CCC", as the name suggests, is a cursed pit that bores out reality.

    In addition to scattering all objects inside on an atomic level and reconstructing them, it is capable of overwriting and reprinting information in fields such as luck and coincidence. While theoretical, it is also thought possible to distort the time axis by interfering with gravitational fields and rewrite the law of cause and effect.

    When used in combat, BB's familiars, the shapeshifters, engulf the target and, after turning into a sphere, are wiped out of existence along with the target and the whole dimension.

    Normally, a structure in which sense of values can be shared cannot be created in the Far Side of the Moon, which is an imaginary space. What established BB's internal world as the Sakura Labyrinth was the power of this Noble Phantasm.

    02 - Advanced Level AI
    Artificial intelligences configured according to their programs.
    In this age, they are treated as things that "function as programs", but "do not exist as actual beings". In other words, things that "are" right in front of your eyes but "are not". They are merely mechanisms for smooth progression of human lives.

    The same applies in the SE.RA.PH. They are virtual lifeforms that are created along with the commencement of the Holy Grail War and disposed along with its conclusion.

    Humanoid virtual lifeforms at the SE.RA.PH include NPCs that perform single objectives, AIs who have been granted capabilities for self-judgement, and advanced level AIs who have been entrusted with capabilities for self-judgement and management of sections.

    Advanced level AIs are beings made to efficiently promote the Moon Cell's primary objective of "human observation". As perfect reproductions of humans, they have been programmed with even souls, but the souls only "exist" and their contents are colorless.

    Virtual lifeforms made in the SE.RA.PH are reset with each round of the Holy Grail War. NPCs and AIs return to zero, but advanced level AIs retain just their personas while their records are reset—as if they never existed.

    When the Holy Grail War is over, the only one left alive is the Master standing at the top. This applies not only to the Masters but also to the virtual lifeforms made in the SE.RA.PH.

    It appears that BB, like Sakura, is an advanced level AI entrusted with management of Masters' health. However, as she is rampaging for reasons unknown, the methods of "managing the Masters" have become extreme.

    03 - Khakkhara of Domination
    The teacher's pointer that BB carries.
    A device that lets her make full use of her authority as an advanced level AI. Although limited to the Far Side of the Moon, this allows BB to modify the spiritron laws(game rules) within the SE.RA.PH.

    "Ten Crowns of Domination" worn by the Beast of Babylon converted into a teacher's pointer.
    This is the male principle corresponding to the female principle of the seven-headed beast, and its true nature is a phallus (erect rod).

    The symbol of the king of the world who was granted throne and authority by a great dragon and received the right to, for 42 months, spit out as many insolent words as desired and desecrate all things.

    The beast's heads were the seven hills of the Roman Empire... Capitolium, Palatium, Aventinus, Esquilinus, Caelius, Quirinalis, Viminalis. In other words, they meant the Roman Empire itself, and the ten horns symbolized the emperors... Augustus, Tiberius, Caligula, Claudius, Nero, Vespasianus, Titus, Galba, Otho, Vitellius.

    01 - Golden Grail [EX]
    The golden grail that BB owns. Also called the Holy Grail.
    A negative grail that grants its owner's impudent and selfish wishes.

    The grail held by the great whore of Babylon who appears in the Revelation to John. Though it is a fake Holy Grail, it is for that reason that it has become a "genuine" Holy Grail that grants the desires of humans regardless of right or wrong.

    To the Christians who considered honorable poverty a virtue at that time, a grail molded from a symbol of wealth like gold no doubt had connotations of corrupt wealth, avarice, and vanity of trying to adorn oneself.

    As the grail held by the great whore of Babylon who personifies the Roman Empire, this grail clearly symbolizes treasures on earth, which is the inverse of the Christ's words "Do not store up treasures on earth."

    "I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast that was full of blasphemous names, and it had seven heads and ten horns."

    According to the Book of Revelation, this is the description of the beast of destruction that appeared in the Holy City and the woman straddling that beast. A huge beast with sevens heads like a hydra appeared from the sea and landed at the Holy City. This beast and the woman, while two, are as one, and it is impossible to think of them separately.

    As the woman was said to give birth to all evil, those who were imprudent or greedy could not resist her allure and became corrupted by that grail.

    On a side note, the red Saber who calls herself the emperor was regarded the same as this beast and viewed as an enemy by the believers after her death.

    02 - Self-Modification [EX]
    A skill that allows restructuring of oneself.
    AIs made by the Moon Cell were given an absolute command: "You must not improve own function."

    However, BB, who escaped from that yoke due to her breakdown, began to expand her own functions. To boost her calculation power, she preyed upon/disassembled NPCs, AIs, and finally, Servants with black noise, then used as her own memory.

    Though they are like appendix building additions that do not heed self-collapse, as the result, BB has changed into a hyper level AI with enormous capacity.

    That condition resembles a city on reclaimed land that continues to build while submerging or Frankenstein's monster.

    03 - Potnia Theron [EX]
    Conception of All Animals(Potnia Theron).
    The authority of the goddesses that BB compiled and absorbed from the abyss of the mooncell.

    It embodies the power of all creation possessed by the mother goddesses—originating from a forgotten goddess approximately 8000 years ago (the goddess of Çatalhöyük) and branching to Tiamat and Cybele, Ishtar, Inanna, Anat, Astarte, Gaia, Hera, Artemis, Aphrodite, Demeter, Athena, etc.

    Many are depicted with mural crowns. This is because many of these goddesses were also guardian deities of cities.

    The symbols of this authority include holes opening the earth and the sky (caves and the moon), whirling tides and waterspouts of the sea, calderas of the volcanoes, etc., and from these, evils that bring all manners of death are birthed. However, after these evils have spread death, they promise certain good harvest and fertility. This authority is none other than the power of bringing death as well as giving life.

    The earth mother is worshipped by the people and protects them as a guardian deity, but at the same time, she is the very sacrifice that nurtures them with crops born from her body and beasts of the fields and the forests.

    The earth mother nurtures men with her flesh and blood, kills men as time passes to restores herself with her own nourishment, and once again nurtures men with her restored flesh and blood.

    This process is the cycle of the food chain, and this cycle of life and death can be said to be the true nature of the earth mother. With this authority, most of the goddesses gave birth to countless monsters and giants, posing threats to gods and men, or they gave birth to heroes, thus protecting people.

    As representative examples, Tiamat and Gaia became threats, while Hera is a mother of heroes.

    Those born on this earth cannot defy the authority of the mother goddess, as that would mean rebelling against the very system of life. However, when they leave this earth, head to space, and end the childhoood as intelligent lifeforms, they will have broken this authority.

    The wish of Çatalhöyük is the coming of that day.

    01 - Spiritron Imaginary Pit
    Spiritron Imaginary Pit(Cursed Cutting Crater).

    The official name of this stage.
    Formerly just an imaginary number space for storing malignant information, "this place" was established as a real number space in the present, past, and future by the fact that BB had reached the Moon Cell core. It was reconstructed by her hands into the “far side of the moon” where even Masters can exist.

    With the power of the primordial goddess at hand, BB succeeded in quantifying the "nothingness" before the birth of life. She transformed into the master of the imaginary number space where both time and space and ambiguous.

    Although the Moon Cell cannot be hacked no matter how much time is taken, BB took over it by placing herself in "unlimited time".

    02 - The remnants of peaceful days
    During the preliminaries, when Kiara liberated her free will, she was unable to control that status condition and went into overload.

    Since NPCs can only do routine work, they ignored self-destructing Sakura as something "non-existent", and since the Moon Cell's check only takes place at the end of the day in the preliminaries, Sakura was at risk of termination.

    Witnessing this condition, [Kishinami Hakuno] called out to her, "Are you okay."

    The observation that she "is here" by another let Sakura recover the unconscious on the verge of termination, and due to the nursing afterwards, she gained an ego that clearly "wanted to be here". Her self-termination was averted.

    What happened afterwards no longer need to be said.
    When the next day comes, everything will be erased by the Moon Cell. Wanting to continue this one day miracle, Sakura used her advanced AI privilege to repeat "the day she came to know [Kishinami Hakuno]" for 69 days.

    However, as days passed, Sakura became distressed by her self-contradiction as an AI and the facts surrounding [Kishinami Hakuno].

    "Masters participating in the Holy Grail War will all die except one. No, to begin with, [Kishinami Hakuno] is..."

    Sakura continued to be distressed by her selfish desire to continue the loop for eternity and her feelings for [Kishinami Hakuno]. In conclusion, she chose to seal the 69 days worth of memory... the "love" she acquired, so she could return to being a normal AI. AIs cannot delete records. Because of that, she moved the memory to a backup frame to reset herself.

    She believed that to be the most correct choice for [Kishinami Hakuno].

    But even if recollections of the mind are lost, memories recorded by the body live on. Though she should have forgotten everything and returned to being a normal AI, she was shaken by unidentified emotional values every time she talked with [Kishinami Hakuno].

    Meanwhile, the backup to whom the memories were transplanted couldn't tolerate herself like that, and she decided to act as BB the rebel who destroys the Moon Cell's system for a certain objective then made her move.

    The timing when she seized the Far Side of the Moon was "the Holy Grail War: the end of fifth round ~ before the start of the sixth round". The four who were not eliminated yet—[Kishinami Hakuno], Leo, Rin, and Rani—and the irregular, Jinako, were kidnapped to the Far Side in the middle of the Holy Grail War while they were still alive.

    Masters Matou Shinji, Gatou, and Julius were moved to the imaginary space "0.00001 seconds before" the moment the firewall terminated them after their defeat from the Holy Grail War, prolonging their instants of life.

    In either case, C. C. C. is a dream by BB. If the dreamer disappears, the world ought to return to the reality where nothing happened.

    On a yet another side note, everyday scenery of the prologue that [Kishinami Hakuno] saw in the nightmare was an artificial paradise modeled on the discarded 69 days.

    After pulling [Kishinami Hakuno] to the Far Side, BB placed the digital body in the old school building, put it in a deep sleep, and locked them in an unwaking dream.

    Normally, they would have lived peacefully in the looping everyday life, but the strong bond with their Servant or [Kishinami]'s will rejecting the peaceful everyday caused cracks in the artificial paradise, and [Kishinami Hakuno] came to notice the abnormality.

    To put [Kishinami Hakuno] in a deep sleep once more, BB reset the school building and tried to remake the dream, but [Kishinami Hakuno] escaped the reset as well and leaped into an even deeper part of the imaginary space.

    It was a bottom deeper than the bottom of Id. "Death of the collective unconscious" beneath the unconscious. What saved [Kishinami Hakuno] who leaped into a region even BB cannot reach was the voice of the Servant whose fate was shared with theirs.

    Thus, the contract was sealed, and [Kishinami Hakuno] woke up in the old school building left in the Far Side.
