What happened in Full Dive Finale Episode 12?

In Full Dive Finale Episode 12,Reality x VR, Alicia finally decides to forgive Hiro but just as she defends him, she faces her demise. This pumped Hiro to do better and he uses his speed skill to put up his own defense against Tesla. In Kamui's walkthrough, it was then discussed how the strong emotions of each player could temporarily negate the realism of the game.

Hiro was able to outmaneuver and stab Tesla, however, his sword snapped. With Tesla about to counterattack, Hiro's soul gets help from Martin. Back on his body, Hiro realizes that his sword, despite being broken, is the cursed best friend killer blade.

Just as he would be killing Tesla, Hiro wakes up in his room as he forgot about Govern. This gave Tesla the chance to kill him and finally destroying his console. After what happened, Hiro got depressed. He remembered, though, that in Kamui's walkthrough, there is a way for him to resume in the game back to one hour before his death there.

He took an entire month to prepare and exercise to be fit enough and to survive depression. He even became closer to his sister and he is now standing up against the bullies. He had hoped after he realized that Kamui was in the same position in life like he is. He returns to the store, loaned a new console from Reona, and he reenters the game.

So, Hiro died in the end but there is another way he could return to the game. This only means that having another season is highly possible as it could focus on what happens after Hiro returns to the game. If you're still confused as to why he did not feel much pain while in the fight, his strong emotions acted as a barrier to negate the realism of Kiwame Quest.

Now being fully equipped and prepared for what will happen when he comes back to the game, Hiro will definitely do better this time as he knows more about the game and how to defeat his adversaries. While there is still no confirmation as regards season 2, the ending of the first season gives hope that there is more to the story.

Full Dive Finale is now up on Funimation in its English dubbed version for those with a premium access subscription costing $5.99 per month or $59.99 a year. The episode will be out for free on June 30, 2021.
