Shinkai throws an expected arc change with the latest chapter. But now that it’s here, we can expect Earthchild Chapter 22 spoilers to be on their way to give us some early hints. But before they are here, let’s sum up what the latest chapter says.
This chapter, unlike the other chapters, was less tragic and more on the relieving side. The chapter begins with Kareri and Albert successfully protecting the ISS from the meteorites. Everyone finally takes a sigh of relief.
But as a short scare, the ship starts to change its course. This leads to everyone being shocked and concerned that they have another crisis to take care of again. But surprisingly, it isn’t a crisis. It is Mamoru.
As per the nature of Earthchildren, he forms a strong telepathic connection with his parents. Turns out he is controlling the entire ISS on his own. Kareri and Sawada rejoice and are proud of their son for being so talented.
Following this, the ship finally lands on Earth. Mamoru immediately shoots himself towards his mother, and they finally meet each other again. Sawada’s family is finally together now. Everyone finally celebrates the success of the mission.
Now that Mamoru is with his parents, their telepathic connection is even stronger. Witnessing this, Katagiri suggests that they function as an Earthchildren family who goes on missions together. Since Reisuke is an amplifier, both Mamoru and Kareri’s powers would be boosted, and they would be able to fulfill the mission with less danger.
Earth’s warning briefly plays in Reisuke’s mind, but he agrees to stick together with his family and protect them. After this, we get a time skip of 6 years. Mamoru is heading to school while Reisuke and Kareri see him off.
The narration shifts to Mamoru’s pov. He tells us how fate still holds a tight grip on his family. How they still have to fight the entire cosmos which is against them. He expresses his family’s determination to set things right because Earthchildren has suffered for too long.
The chapter ends by revealing how Mamoru looks after the time skip.
