Excel Saga, Vol. 26
Q: What happens when you try to act like an anime character in real life? A: EXCEL SAGA. Two groups of neighbors in an apartment building lead secret lives. One thinks they're trying to take over the city of Fukuoka. The other thinks they're trying to defend it. Only their bosses, would-be conqueror Lord Il Palazzo and obsessed bureaucrat Dr. Kabapu, know the truth behind this increasingly dangerous private game... Too bad neither will let their underlings in on it!
Is the Il Palazzo commanding ACROSS real or fake, and what does that mean, exactly? The original reunited team of Excel, Hyatt and Elgala stand before the throne of their lord—only for Excel to perform a blasphemous gesture of disloyalty, and for Il Palazzo to issue the most shocking order Excel could ever imagine! As Shiouji comes to realize the truth about both his father and his mother, Matsuya is ready to make a decision that will open the forbidden door at last. Warning: you have been misled!
