1. Maro no Kanja wa Gatenkei 3 Kanketsuhen 麻呂の患者はガテン系3 完結編 [151015] Elf 1
Maro 3: The End of Marogelion begins by backtracking slightly to replay the ending scene of the second game, which is for a reason and the scene, seemingly abrupt and random in 2, eventually takes on meaning but still feels random at the start of this game too. Randomness, disjointedness are themes of note throughout the third and final Maro.
