- "Goodbye, the one I love."
- ―Nemesis Sudou[src]
Nemesis Sudou relates how Santa has given her a revolver. As she points the gun at her beloved, she prepares to say goodbye. She then expresses a wish to see the summer fireworks festival with him again, apologizing because it could not be so. Nemesis says that from the beginning, they were too different.
Before the confrontation, her love met the "evil" her under a sakura tree the year before and that they became attracted to each other. Being tasked to kill him, Nemesis laments that, while it isn't the first time she has killed a human being, it is the first time she'll fire and cry. She reminisces on how in spring they met, in summer they made "the best memories", in autumn they "became one", and in winter they said goodbye to everything.
When the killer prepares to shoot him, Nemesis says sorry at the last moment and he says something in turn, shocking her. A gunshot is heard. The killer repeats her wish to go to the summer fireworks festival with him again. She then tells him not to worry, and that they will definitely meet again. She relates that they promised they'd always be together; then, a second gunshot is heard.
The song features GUMI using the VOCALOID2 engine. Notable instruments include, piano, drums, guitar, and synth keyboard. A gunshot sound effect can be heard as well. For the version on the The Muzzle of Nemesis album, the song remains relatively unchanged, with the exception of synthesizers. A real piano is used instead.
The song begins with an opening instrumental, followed by its signature melody at 0.21. The first verse begins at 0.48, followed by a pre-chorus at 1.01. The first chorus starts at 1.09, preceding a brief instrumental beginning at 1.40. The second verse starts at 1.52, reaching the second pre-chorus at 2.02. The second chorus begins at 2.11, and immediately opens into the bridge at 2.38. At 3.06, the sound of a gunshot can be heard. A variation of the chorus begins afterwards, followed by the second gunshot at 3.49.
The Muzzle of NemesisEdit
The Muzzle of Nemesis serves as a sequel to The Last Revolver, detailing how Nemesis survived her attempted suicide and developed a grudge against Gallerian for the death of her lover.
Judgment of CorruptionEdit
And Then the Girl Went Mad -Ending Tale on a Moonlit Night-Edit
And Then the Girl Went Mad -Ending Tale on a Moonlit Night- shows Nemesis' past and the cause of her cruel and detached nature as an assassin.
Conceptualization and OriginEdit
- The song's title alludes to the ultimate fate of Nemesis and her lover.
- The song's English title, "Good-by my lover" is derived from Nemesis' words to Nyoze right before killing him.
- While commenting on the song's creation, mothy stated that he had wanted to portray a female hitman.
- The revolver used in the song PV is based on the design of a Smith & Wesson Model 60 revolver.
- In the Evils Forest booklet, Ma comments that they didn't know the whereabouts of the last collectible, questioning if the song was a clue to learning it or simply an error.
- In The Daughter of Evil: Wiegenlied of Green, the incantation that Gumillia uses to project Michaela's spirit from the tree sapling is the first verse of The Last Revolver written backwards.
- During the song PV, when the first shot is fired, the screen cracks and is left with a bullet hole for the rest of the song; during the closing credits, the second shot is fired and leaves a second bullet hole, freezing the two gun shots over the credits for Nyoze and GUMI, respectively.
- When commenting on his official releases for 2010, Akuno-P stated The Last Revolver was not part of the Seven Deadly Sins Series, likely due to speculation of it portraying Wrath in the series.
