I’m Quitting Heroing Episode 12 trailer previews Leo’s fate

Episode 11 left I’m Quitting Heroing fans with an evil cliffhanger, but luckily a special trailer hinting at the events that will take place in episode 12 has been released!

The official preview for I’m Quitting Heroing Episode 12.

From the trailer, we can deduce that the battle between Demon Queen Echidna and Leo Demonheart is over. Leo is still alive but has been completely incapacitated.

There is a gaping hole in his chest and you’re able to see the “Sorcerer’s Stone”, which acts as his heart. Now it must be decided whether or not Echidna and the others will rip Leo’s heart out of his chest, or if they will decide to spare his life and look for another way to save the demon realm.

If they don’t kill Leo and take his heart the demon world is doomed to continue in darkness forever. If they decide to kill Leo they end up having to kill someone who has become a cherished friend.

The stakes are high in this upcoming anime climax! Will Echidna and her allies decide to forsake their own homeland for Leo’s sake or will they do what needs to be done to save their home?

Nao Toyoma’s song “De Messiah” has hints about Leo’s fate

On June 15, 2022 Nao Toyoma released a music video for the full version of her song “De Messiah”, which is the epic, emotional ending theme song for I’m Quitting Heroing. The song was produced by TK (Psychopass, 91 Days, Tokyo Ghoul) and Gia. There are hints in the song about Leo’s destiny so pay close attention to the lyrics.

Official music video for Nao Toyoma’s song “De Messiah”.

“De Messiah” English lyrics:

Travel through a thousand years, swim through the waves
Find my body floating in time and space
From a land so wild and so desolate
One more inch, I’ll be reaching the moon’s gate
In and out, I breathe as time passes by
Here today comes the sentence of my life
What’s the burning question you are seeking?
What exactly do you still want from me?

Done, done
Look how tiny you are
Look how fragile you are
Look how helpless you are
I can see what you are
Why don’t you take my hand, take my helping hand?
I must be the hero
All еyes on me, strong and grand
I must be the greater
I must be the savior
All eyes on me, here and now
They say I’m their messiah

All of the hopes and dreams are in this broken tambourine
Make the silent tambourine sing like how it used to be
Come witness the birth of the greatest loneliness
In this hollow stillness, now tell me what will you choose?

Dying, dying, dying or living?
Dying, dying, dying or living?

How tiny you are
How fragile you are
How helpless you are
That’s all that you are

Am I right or wrong?
Enough, I’ll be gone
I’m sick of getting chosen by the world

All the attention’s on me
Now I’m trapped in your sin
Will somebody save me?
I beg you to hear my plea

Our hopes and dreams are in this broken tambourine
Make the silent tambourine sing like how it used to be
Come witness the birth of the greatest loneliness
In this hollow stillness, bury the decayed forgiveness

I’m Quitting Heroing: Next Gig Is at the Demon Queen’s Castle is a dark fantasy, Japanese light novel series written by Quantum and illustrated by Hana Amano. From January to February 2017 the light novel was serialized on Kadokawa’s user-generated novel publishing website Kakuyomu. From December 2017 to October 2018 three volumes of the light novel were published by Fujimi Shobo under their Kadokawa Books imprint.

Since May 2018 a manga adaptation with art by Nori Kazato was serialized on Kadokawa Shoten’s Young Ace Up website. The manga’s chapters have been collected into six tankobon volumes. Kadokawa has licensed the light novel and manga in North America.

On April 5, 2022, an anime TV series adaptation by EMT Square premiered. The anime is currently streaming on HIDIVE and will be released by Sentai Filmworks on home video.

What is the plot of I’m Quitting Heroing?

The anime had a slow start but as more of Leo’s mysterious background was revealed the show became much more interesting and riveting. The story centers on the world’s strongest hero, Leo Demonheart, who has continually protected humanity from demon invasions for thousands of years.

The anime begins in the future, which has taken on a medieval ambiance. Leo thwarts Demon Queen Echidna and her followers when they try to steal an item from the humans called the Philosopher’s Stone.

Leo grows curious about Echidna and her true motives behind the attack since she doesn’t kill humans indiscriminately. Leo decides to disguise himself and join her defeated demon army and help them to get back on their feet in order to learn more about them.

He later learns that the Demon World is a polluted wasteland and that Echidna wants the Philosopher’s Stone to save her home world. Along the way, Leo ends up befriending Echidna’s Elite Four – Steiner (Shutina) a smart succubus demon, Lily a cute wolf demon, Mernes a cold-hearted assassin, and Edvard a dragon demon knight.

Part of Leo’s motivation for joining Echidna’s army was that the human populace has grown fearful of Leo’s power instead of celebrating his victory over Echidna. Humanity is even speculating about whether or not he will become the next demon king… and Leo fears that the humans may be right.

His purpose has always been to protect humanity, but if humanity doesn’t need protection the meaning of his existence is lost. Leo fears he will attack humanity to restart the cycle of humanity needing protection over and over again. That’s why Leo decides to place his fate in the hands of Echidna and her Elite Four.
