The final settlement event is called “Ato no Matsuri” which translates literally to “post-festival”. However, it also translates to “it is too late to regret”. Although, the literal meaning of the title means: a festival after the anime is over.
Thus, the catchphrase is Atonomatsuri will begin! Let’s go together to the other side of the final!
