It’s the year 2015 and in 2060 there was World War 4. A shota named Suzuhara Sorata finds himself at a research lab facility that he’s visiting with his classmates for a special tour. Suddenly he starts trippin’ balls hearing some kind of music and seeing a ghost girl talk to him. Before he knows it, he falls asleep and then finds himself awakened in year 1919! He thinks he’s jumped back in time to the taisho era and then he runs into a girl who can’t even remember her name. She’s babbling nonsense and suddenly a giant alien space ship comes down to them and takes them both on board. On the ship Sorata meets some kids who all have psychic powers and he finds out that they’re on a journey around the world until they reach their “destination” – which is supposedly America. The game then switches to the points of view of 3 heroines and their relationships with the other psychic power users there.. Anyway this intro makes no freaking sense so if you want to make sense of anything you’re gonna have to read some spoilers after the jump :lol:. As usual you can avoid spoilers and skip to my final thoughts instead!
Because the storyline is all over the place with each route revealing bits & pieces I figured I’d just put the whole thing together right up front so that the rest of the review makes sense. So here’s the deal with Norn 9. Norn is the alien space ship run by a programmed robot named Aion and her robo chicken army. While Norn is the big floating spherical thing, I’m guessing NONETTE is the other part of Aion – her actual original body which lies on a small island in America (probably Hawaii since it’s close to Japan.) In 2060 there was World War 4 and people were like hey man the world’s a mess we need to clean up and start over. Unfortunately this isn’t a PSD file that you can just erase layers of, so a group of scientists got together and created Aion. Aion was created for the purposes of doing a “reset” aka destroying the world and then starting a new. Because it’s pretty difficult and dangerous to have this godly robot just hanging around a tiny island, the scientists then created psychic power users who would “hold on” to the powers until they were needed to do the next reset. These are the Norn9 crew an with each reset the psychic power users return their powers to Aion and everyone goes home happy. With the powers of fire to destroy, mind control to wipe memories, dreams to allow people to pretend they’re happy, water and plants to grow back what was destroyed and to make sure all goes well, the power to see the future. So they did the reset after WW4, everything was going ok until this douchebag named Yuiga Shirou showed up. He decided he’s some emo anarchy loser who LOVEESSS GUNNZZZ and he sold guns and spread them all over the world. (Ok that’s not actually the reason but let’s leave it at that for now :lol:)
Then like some kind of jungle apes, the humans who got the guns started shooting each other up and basically causing destruction everywhere. In order to prove himself as the almighty powerful psychopath, Shirou went around with his army destroying those who caused chaos and “protecting” people to make himself look like the good guy (even though in actuality this is all his fucking fault.) Not only that but he took HIS OWN SON and brainwashed him to follow his orders as he basically injected him as a spy into Norn. On top of this, he also used Koharu’s powers to destroy everything and took advantage of the fact that everyone called her a monster because she couldn’t control her firey outbursts. Anyway, he’s the asshole bad guy and the only one to stop him is
Captain Planet Natsuhiko. Natsuhiko is against the reset and he wants to stop both Shirou and resetting so his ultimate goal is to destroy all the psychic power kiddies so that they can never do a reset again and so that Shirou won’t use them as his pewpew army. Because of this, Natsuhiko is considered the “rebellion group” of the ship along with Ron who works for him per contract. So once Natsuhiko blows up stuff in the ship attempting to kidnap Mikoto, whose power is barrier to protect everyone, the entire Norn9 group decides to split up into pairs of 2 to find clues on who the traitors might be. Little do they know of course that Ron is working for Natsuhiko and Kakeru is working for his psychopathic father. On top of this as I mentioned before, they’ve all lived a hard life due to having those psychic powers so they have to all come to terms and learn to live with the consequences of them. And so the game is about how everyone deals with the fact of having the powers, and being able to distinguish between what is right and wrong. Ultimately they are making the final decision on what to do about ongoing chaos that Shirou has caused because there has been 3 resets and now it’s going on to 4. There’s a lot more details but I’ll reveal them near the end of the other characters routes.
The heroines – As a briefer on the heroines before we proceed, we have Koharu, Mikoto and Nanami. Mikoto is the oldest being 18, and has the powers to cast barriers to protect herself and others. Unfortunately this is very draining for her but her pride is too high to admit this so she pushes herself anyway. The 2nd youngest is Koharu, whose name was given to her by Yuiga Shirou the gross pedobear bad guy. She has the power to destroy with her fire like some DBZ super saiyan. Due to this a lot of people have called her a monster, and her own family abandoned her. Because they called her horrible names her whole life, she forgot what her real name was so Shirou gave her the name Koharu. The youngest of the trio is Nanami but despite being youngest she is the most cool and composed of the 3. The reason is because she was raised as a kunoichi (a female ninja) but her family are assholes too and forced her to use her powers for the good of their village. Her power is to erase memories and by doing this it not only causes grief to those who she does it to, but then she has self inflicted guilt and has a “oh well if I die then I die” attitude. Despite this though, like Mikoto she don’t take no one’s shit and if you get on her bad side prepare for her to shove a kunai up your ass.
Ichinose Senri – Senri is the resident hikkikomori. He hides in his room all day because he’s had a rough life and well his brains scrambled thanks to Nanami. (More on that in Akito’s route.) He doesn’t want to get close to anyone because he figures once everyone’s shipped to their respective countries, they’ll be at war with each other anyway. He’s also often the subject of Kakeru’s bullying. Nothing much happens in Senri’s route though Koharu starts to get close to him because she feels like they are kindred spirits. Well the difference is Koharu tries her best to be upbeat while Senri just locks himself and shuts out the world. They finally get their “moment” when Itsuki puts them into his dream of her being snow white and Senri being some dwarf fallen angel that she falls in love with. After the dream they both realize they’re in love with each other but then pedobear Shirou shows up and wants to use Koharu as his personal flame thrower. So while she’s running around burning shit to the ground everyone tries to figure out a way to get her back. Senri stops being a hikki, grows a pair and goes out there telling her she don’t need to kill nobody cause he looooves her. Koharu’s like oh okay, let’s make love not war and they smooch in the desert together. So uhm suddenly it’s the end and Koharu and Senri are now hikkis together in his room. In the bad end, the pedobear brainwashes Koharu enough not to want to leave him so since Senri’s a neet who don’t care about humanity and just wants to be with her, he decides to go along. The 2 of them end up in pedobear’s cage as his personal pewpew army. Erm yea Senri’s route was really short and had like no plot except the tl;dr dump but I really liked him anyway. It’s funny how much his words can sting though sadly he can’t defend them most of the time because he’s terrified of everyone.
Shukuri Akito – I did Akito next per recommendation of my broadcast viewers but now I’m really glad because it’s actually best to play this game on order of guys rather than by order of heroine groups. Anyway Akito is a waifu and he’s great at cooking so when Nanami and Heishi abuse the kitchen he rages at them and even gets into physical fights. He has a strange fear of all the robo-chicks on the ship and is also a huge tsundere （*´▽｀*）ツボｷﾀ━(ﾟ∀ﾟ)━! So right off the bat Akito and Nanami are on edge with each other because they go way back. Basically they were from the same village and Akito has no psychic powers. However, Nanami’s powers are to wipe memories and Akito’s younger brother’s powers were water. Guess who else’s power is water! That’s right, Senri is actually Akito’s younger brother and Shukuri is Akito’s made up last name, because he’s actually Ichinose Akito. The village they all lived in suffered massive drought and so the villagers wanted Senri to use his water powers to help this problem. Unfortunately at the time Senri was a little kid (and he technically still is) and it would really wear him down, especially since he was already pretty weak to begin with. Needless to say Akito got pissed of everyone using & abusing his otouto-kun so he threatened them telling them to leave his bro alone. Nanami’s asshole dad then goes “hey why don’t you go wipe Senri’s memory of Akito being his brother so we can exile him from the village and kill him cause he’s in the way of our endless water hose!” Nanami was like umm I don’t really wanna do this but her dad was like LISTEN BITCH U DO WHAT I SAY I OWN UR POWERS. Well being a loli Nanami was like okay.jpg and agreed to do this. Unfortunately, Akito was NOT pleased and he was like why the fuck did you do this jfc man. Nanami knew the villagers were going to be after him so despite him yelling at her, she helped him escape and has carried this guilt ever since. So now they’re awkwardly paired up and the whole time she feels like Akito wants to kill her, but she’s totally ok with this because she feels its well deserved. (；´Д｀)
Things get even more awkward when KakeRUDE comes along and handcuffs the 2 of them together so they’re forced to try and get along. The awkwardness continues even after they manage to detach each other and in the Itsuki-dream, Nanami is red riding hood while Akito’s the big bad wolf. Fortunately he’s a moe wolf and Nanami’s like well this is a dream and starts snuggling and kissing him xDDD. A fake Akito shows up and starts to strangle her but she’s like oh I guess this is my fate but wolfy Akito saves her and when she wakes up he bursts into her room. He’s like why didn’t you defend yourself and she’s like “cause it’s ok if you kill me” but at this point killing Nanami is the last thing on Akito’s mind. In fact both of them are so in love with each other that Akito asks her not to go with other guys and Nanami tells him she doesn’t want to be hated by him anymore. So then the usual shit hits the fan, Mikoto takes Natsuhiko’s side, Kakeru and his pedobear dad abduct Koharu. Meanwhile Nanami and Akito…go on a date in taisho-land cause he wants to buy her a present. ε-(*´∀`|萌| (This has like nothing to do with the plot but lol.) When he tells her that he thinks she’s cute no matter what she wears she’s so embarrassed she passes out lmao xDDD ☆ﾟ+‡｡萌:.ﾟ(○´ω｀○） ﾟ.萌:｡‡+ﾟ ☆ Terrible flow of anything tbh but whatever, moe Akkun and Nanamin. When they return to the nice boat, Akito reveals that he’s Senri’s brother and he’s taken half of his water powers in the past. He then takes the rest of Senri’s powers even though it’s a huge strain on his body.
Akito then asks Nanami to erase Senri’s memories of what happened so that he doesn’t go following Koharu to destroy the world now that he’s powerless. Nanami refuses to do this and begs Akito to give her his water powers before he dies but he says he’ll be fine. After he takes a break he starts smooching Nanami’s neck and tells her to call him by his first name since Shukuri’s obviously not his real last name. (o;;;:´;Д;`:;;;p[｡+ﾟ:.萌え萌え.:ﾟ+｡]q They end up smooching together (*´ｪ(*´ｪ(*´ｪ(*´ｪ｀*)ｪ｀*)ｪ｀*)ｪ｀*)ｽﾍﾟｼｬﾙﾎﾟｯ♪ So then everyone goes to the island where Aion’s chillaxing and by chillaxing, I mean avoiding being fried to a crisp by Koharu. They return their powers to Aion for the reset and after this Nanami and Akito get all raburabu together back on the ship. (Yea Idk the consistency of this end with other routes but whatever lol.) Suddenly Koharu and Senri come back to fill them in on what happened with the others. Nanami and Koharu then push the 2 brothers to rekindle their relationship once more. (*´ω｀*) If you choose to erase Senri’s memories though, Akito tells Nanami that as long as he has her he doesn’t need anything else. Just as Akito pulls her into bed telling her it’s sexy time, Heishi sends them a telepathic message that everyone’s returned and 100% cockblocks them xDDD Akito’s like god damnit you better be ready for tonight then (ノ｀Д´)ノ XDD In the bad end, when Nanami and Akito jump into the past of the 2 of them, Akito imagines his younger self saving both Senri and the village. He can’t accept the past where Senri’s memories got wiped so Nanami vows to stay in the past by his side until he can accept it and return to the present. Bawww Akito is such a cutie and it was so sweet playing his route immediately after Senri’s. I know Senri’s girl is Koharu but for some reason after playing Akito’s route I have this weird Akito x Nanami x Senri OT3 in my head lmao xD. Also damn poor Akito missed his chance to get laid!
Otomaru Heishi – Heishi is like the puppy dog mood maker on the ship but under that happy exterior lies a PASSIONATE HEART who’s in love with Nanamin. Okay honestly I think Heishi is adorable but his bad end made me feel weird because I started to think “is this really his true personality that we never got to see in his original route? Or is this O/C for the sake of having a yandere.” I guess I’ll never know but be forwarned that his bad end may ruin him as a character lol. At first Heishi treats Nanami like his little sister and he’ll jump on her bed in the morning like a dog waiting for his morning walk. He even gets really happy when she pets him on the head （*´▽｀*）. Heishi’s power is telepathy and he can basically transmit his voice to anyone but if he gets too nervous, his own voice and thoughts will get transmitted to others without his control. So yea shit starts off with Nanami asking him “what if I’m in the rebelling group?” and he’s like “don’t say that because whatever I feel about you, you will KNOW so there’s no way I’d ever be able to hate you.” Nanamin stop pushing your bishies away! After this Nanami is afraid to say anything around him in order not to upset which…obviously upsets him cause he starts worrying about her. Heishi’s done some hard livin’ too cause he was abandoned by his parents and then picked up by some traveling circus. To earn his food he had to learn how to perform and that’s where he learned how to play the flute. So at first Nanami was ok with being treated like his pet (and vice versa really) but after a spending more time with him as his partner, things like “you’re cute” start to mean different things to her and she can’t handle all these new feels! He tells Nanami his dream is to get married and have kids and asks if she wants to help him out with dat. When Nanami says she wants to make his dream come true he’s so happy but their happy moment is ruined when Ron and Natsuhiko show up to cockblock and threaten to kill both of them. Ron then says he wants to have Nanami all to himself so he tells her to erase Heishi’s memories what’s going on.. Nanami then tells herself that she’s not qualified to love anyone since she couldn’t even save the guy she loves.
The next day Nanami pretty much avoids contact with him (cause she’s threatened by Ron) and Heishi’s completely heartbroken because of this and he has no idea why it’s happening. Ron also tells her that if she doesn’t do what he says he will also kill Heishi. After Itsuki’s dream scenario, Nanami meets Heishi at night near the observatory and she says she’s horrified at the fact that if her powers are combined with his they could potentially wipe everyone’s memories even if they don’t want to. Heishi says he doesn’t care about what Norn wants him to do, and he has no intentions of being some kind of weird messiah. She then admits that she’s erased his memories once before, and doesn’t deserve to be with him. He’s like idgaf woman, I love you and grabs and kisses her. Sadly Nanami rejects him but she goes back to her room and cries. (´；ω；｀) Oh my god justfuckalready.jpg www Heishi then plans to run away with Nanami and Mikoto and Itsuki are in full support of them. When the ship lands in town they use the opportunity to run off and buy some common folk clothes to blend in. Sadly they run into Masamune who uses his powers to see the past and finds out their plans to run away from Norn. They tell him that they refuse to return to Norn and Nanami erases Masamune’s memories of everything they just told him. After this, they travel around the world and take photos together to send to some guy who pays them for it. They also earn money thanks to Heishi’s flute playing. Some time later, they make a print of the photo that Heishi took of them together. (*´ω｀*) In the bad end, Nanami and Heishi find some shack in the woods and live together. However, Heishi buys a gun to use to protect Nanami and then goes into yandere mode. (´・ω・｀) He nearly strangles her and begs her to trust him promising he’ll get enough money for them to run away. He becomes really clingy and when Itsuki and Akito come to their house, he pulls out his gun. Desperate and not knowing what to do, Nanami quickly wipes all of his memories of herself and begs the other 2 to save him. They return to the ship together but he doesn’t even know who she is. щ(ಥДಥщ) See what I mean, a yandere with a gun, what happened there Hei-chan!?
Kagami Itsuki – Itsuki manipulates the power of dreams and can make anyone see whatever dream they desire. He’s very teasing and playful but being a scorpio, it’s all an act to cover up his fragile heart. Itsuki really loves Mikoto a lot but he knows the complicated relationship she has with her childhood friend Sakuya so he always backs off. In fact he even tries to get the two to hook up just to give himself a reason to give up on her but due to Sakuya & Mikoto’s inner problems, things don’t go just as keikaku. At first Mikoto’s really tsun to Itsuki and whenever he hits on her she punches him or rages at him. After a while though, her tsun-wall starts crumbling and she finds herself weak to his advances. This comes as a surprise to Itsuki because he always expects rejection so when he doesn’t get rejected, his feelings for her grow even stronger. Mikoto tells Itsuki that she sees Sakuya like a “younger brother” because in the past he was always pretty weak and she’d be the one protecting him. One day they go to the library together to write letters to their relatives but Itsuki writes her a love letter instead. He then apologizes for trying to hook up her and Sakuya thinking that they’re both in love. She then says that in his place she wouldn’t be able to “cheer someone on that she likes if they were to end up with another person.” The two of them end up kissing in the library. Now that the person that Mikoto loves is Itsuki, the future changes and Sakuya is no longer destined to die (more on this in Sakuya’s route.) The two are both so happy but Itsuki feels really hurt and feels like once again he’s a cockblock to their relationship, without realizing the reason Sakuya’s not dying is because of him. He stays in his room moping until Mikoto decides to be the one to break the ice and goes to talk to him. Anyway they both realize that they’re in love with each other and they need to just fuck already, so finally, they go and fuck already. (/▽*＼)～♪ ｲﾔｧﾝ
Sadly their happiness is interrupted when the following day the
deathstar Norn gets attacked all around and Mikoto can’t put up her barrier. Suddenly Mikoto finds herself living some happy life in a cottage with Itsuki but every night she notices how he’s “disappearing”. Well it’s all because she’s been in this dream for a while and she starts hearing Koharu’s and Sakuya’s voice calling out for her. She tells Itsuki to let her out of his uguu dream of love and he says he’d rather her be happy here than be miserable in reality. Mikoto figures out his weakness and the dream ends. She wakes up to find out that when the ship got attacked a lot of people got injured and the person who got hurt the most is Itsuki. Mikoto ends up taking care of his injuries and feels horrible because despite him being injured he tried to take her attention away from himself by having her have this happy dream. She finds his letter that he wrote to her in the library that one day and reading it starts crying. Itsuki wakes up surprised he isn’t dead but then Ronny shows up to be a party pooper. After Mikoto throws a book at him , he blocks it with his manboob barrier and leaves. (Ronny’s got tits of steel that’s why his shirt is always open.) Itsuki then tells Mikoto that he wanted to try and kill Ronny on his own but she’s like yo bro don’t take the burden on yourself. He also then admits that he’s super jelly so he feels like punching himself for ever trying to hook up Mikoto with Sakuya. Anyway they end up running away from the ship to live on earth together just like in his dream. They start saving money so that they can afford a wedding and promise to be together forever and live happily ever after. In the bad end, the dream continues but Itsuki dies and the dream ends so he disappears from her dream.(´；ω；｀) In the gallery you can hear Itsuki’s letter to Mikoto and he wants to have babies with her that turn out to be strong just like her. ( ≖‿≖) I loved Itsuki a lot but now that I think back I wish I had done his route AFTER Sakuya because thanks to this route Sakuya creeped the fuck out of me. Needless to say I started Sakuya’s route already disliking him and his route didn’t really improve upon the situation. S’okay though, Mikoto’s got 2/3 guys right :lol:.
Nijou Sakuya – Eugh, yandere obsessive childhood friends, no thanks! Well okay I’ll give him the fact that he really DOES LOVE and CARE for Mikoto but they entire relationship revolves around the guilt of each other’s powers and I seriously wanted to spam “justfuckalready.jpg” in every other scene. Here’s the deal with Sakuya. His power is the ability to see the future and when he was a shota he saw the future of him dying to save the person he loves. So from that day forward Mikoto told him, don’t fall in love with anyone and that she would protect him. After all these years of dodging other chicks, the only girl he really had near him is Mikoto so who is he gonna fall in love with besides her? And Mikoto’s sense of responsibility to protect Sakuya eventually transforms into deep feelings for him which as she grew older transformed into love. In order to try to break these feelings, she would constantly act cold and mean to him in hopes to both make herself not like him and make him not fall for her. So basically they both love each other but OH NOES IF WE FALL IN LOVE SAKUYA WILL DIE and so they have to constantly cockblock themselves. Needless to say as the player, it was really really frustrating. It was so frustrating that I not only felt sorry for Sakuya but I also felt sorry for Itsuki cause he still loves her in Sakuya’s route but he backs off knowing about Mikoto’s feelings for Sakuya. ARGH THIS LOVE TRIANGLE IS LIKE SOME DAYTIME SOAP OPERA. (ﾉಥ益ಥ）ﾉ 彡┻━┻ This whole drama continues for a while because neither of them is brave enough to admit they love each other for fear of the future nonsense but it’s obvious what they both feel when in the fairy tale dream, Mikoto starts crying on Sakuya’s shoulder. OR SO SHE THOUGHT. Turns out Mikoto’s feelings for Sakuya are so strong that when she met Itsuki in the dream, in her mind it was Sakuya. So while she’s standing there crying SAKUYAAA on Itsuki’s shoulder, the actual Sakuya comes by and all he sees in front of his eyes is NTR. ／(^o^)＼ﾅﾝﾃｺｯﾀｲ When she comes to help him change his bandages, he pushes her down on the floor saying he wished that he never told her about the future of him dying and would have just died protecting her….CAUSE HE CAN’T LIVE KNOWING THAT SHE LOVES SOMEONE ELSE. Argghhh WOULD THE TWO OF YOU
Lol I seriously wanted to flip my desk. I hate this route because I felt like Mikoto is a strong character but here she needs constant validation of “No Mikoto there IS hope” meh. When it comes to Sakuya it’s like she becomes some helpless blob. Eventually they both stop dicking around and Mikoto stops being a “wild horse” and hugs Sakuya in the RAIN OF EMOTION saying she won’t let him die. They come up with a plan to look into the future to see if they can prevent Sakuya’s death. They notice that he gets killed by a gunshot so they decide to probe more into that. Once everyone gets to the island with Aion, and she gives the info dump, she gives the option of going through 2 doors – the past and the future. So while Sakuya & co. are derping through the doors, Natsuhikki shows up saying he’s gonna kill everyone but Mikoto starts protecting everyone with her barrier. Just then Sakuya and co. come back in time for Natsuhikki’s rambo shooting spree. Fortunately thanks to Mikoto’s barrier, Natsuhiko’s bullets come straight back at him, and when Ron comes back with his guns, Koharu burns off his guns and his nipples 😆 (That’s why you never see them in the game!) Also apparently Itsuki had no powers cause he gave them to Ron in exchange that he wouldn’t hurt Mikoto though Ron’s mission was just being in a contract with Natsuhiko and doing as he says. They all give back Aion their powers and she does the
3rd Impact Reset so that way Sakuya’s “future” changes. After this Sakuya tells Mikoto how much he loves her and tells her he wants sexy time in her room that night. They smooch under the random crap on the island while everyone suddenly disappears around them lol. In the bad end, Sakuya dies protecting her just like he predicted. Blah what a frustrating route with a randomly anticlimatic ending. I heard Sakuya is popular among Japanese fans but oh well I often find my tastes are 180 degree polar opposite of what Japan thinks ┐(‘～`；)┌.
Yuiga Kakeru – Well if Sakuya wasn’t bad, we have KakeRUDE. Kakeru is seriously rude and he’s extremely do-S and haraguro. He uses both Koharu and Senri for his own entertainment, however he starts having guilt pains when Koharu responds so innocently to his bullying :lol:. In fact I think it’s this airheaded innocence of hers that makes him fall in love with her because seriously I turn and look away and the next minute Kakeru’s blushing like a tomato. Whut?! I mean she even falls for him calling himself a girl and starts to call him Kakeru-chan at some point lmfao. Since Kakeru’s power is plants, he gives Koharu a strawberry plant pot so she can raise it herself. Having no experience with any kind of plant raising, Koharu overwaters the poor thing and it wilts. Once he explains to her how to properly take care of it, she gets all excited and then everyone makes fun of Kakeru saying that he’s on the same level as a plant to her m9（＾Д＾）ﾌﾟｷﾞｬｰｰｰｯ. Kakeru tells Koharu about the earring he has which he got from his father when he was 10. His father got killed by someone and the earring was the only thing he left him. Little does Kakerude know that the earring is actually a brainwave device that pretty much brainwashes him to be his father’s slave. It’s really odd and inconsistent but when Kakeru wears the earring he seems well aware of his mission but when it comes off, he seems like he’s really shocked when Shirou bursts into Norn. Anyway Kakeru’s earring gets taken from him by Ron to stop the brainwashing but lol Koharu goes to get it back for him. FUCKING GREAT. The one thing Ronny does right in this game is wasted! ／(^o^)＼ So then Kakeru gets his infamous fever so Koharu goes to help take care of him. She tells him that he’s a bum and only she can handle him as they smooch in the dream Itsuki made. Well now that they’re both raburabu, Kakeru realizes that he no longer needs to be dependent on the earring (well thank god) because now he has Koharu instead.
So then Kakeru’s dad and his storm trooper army come to kidnap Koharu so Ron protects her cause he knows the dilly. Kakeru then shows up to help but then Koharu burns them all down with her fireball like a DBZ super saiyan. She feels embarrassed of her powers and tries to avoid everyone by locking herself in her room for a few days. Kakeru goes to see her and apologizes for praising her power levels being over 9000 since it’s something that she was called a “monster” for in the past. He then comforts her…with his weiner and they screw all night. The following day Ron is like lol I know you’re following daddy’s orders. Suddenly DADDY SHOWS UP and he’s like Koharu you’re coming with me. Masamune shows up calling Shirou a traitor and he’s like “sorry I woulda come sooner but Aion cockblocked my pedobear ways.” Natsuhiko shows up and announces that Shirou is the one who created Aion. (Technically NO but more on that later.) Meanwhile a beaten up Kakeru is like damn and this whole time I thought you were dead, daddy. Masamune then says that Kakeru is actually their enemy because he was just following daddy’s orders the whole time to spy on all of them. So then Shirou’s robo army attacks Norn and everyone jumps ship and runs to Hawaii to see Nonette. I still don’t get the whole thing with Kakeru and his dad, I mean in some parts he seems like he knows what he’s doing and following orders but I guess when he snaps out of brainwash mode he’s like “daddeh!” Aion tells them because Kakeru’s MIA they can’t do the “reset” cause there’s no one to make the trees. Koharu begs for Aion to save Kakeru but Aion’s like “well Shirou abandoned his son once but he was brainwashed so it was too late.” Additionally he was brainwashed in order to get Koharu on his side so that Shirou could then use Koharu to basically do the 2nd impact. Heishi then says based on his brainwave powers he could tell that Kakeru’s feelings for Koharu are his own and not part of the brainwashing (though that doesn’t change the fact that Koharu wants to go to Kakeru which would be Shirou’s just as keikaku ww) Suddenly Shirou and his storm troopers come and attack the island as well as Aion’s computer.
Ron and Natsuhiko show up as reinforcement and they all fight shit. Much to Koharu’s dismay, she is now faced to fight against Kakeru who’s been brainwashed to the point that he just shoots out plants like some hentai tentacle monster. Koharu then grows magical wings of fire and fries all his tentacle salad. ＼( ^o^)／ This magically snaps him back to reality and they once again profess their love to each other and smooch. Also Koharu’s wings seriously looked like the end of evangelion ones on Rei lol. Natsuhiko tells Masamune that he’s found Shirou’s dead body and his impact causing havoc is over but the world is all fucked up now and unless they do a reset, shit’s gonna keep hitting the fan. Even after finishing the game I have no fucking clue why Shirou died – maybe too much tenseing on his body (like Orochimaru in Naruto ww.) Meanwhile Kakeru and Koharu go frolicking in the field and live happily ever after growing strawberries together. Also Kakeru wants to screw out in the open field but she tells him to keep his weiner in his pants and wait till they get back home :lol:. He settles down for a kiss instead. In the bad end, Nanami gets stabbed by the tentacle salad to protect Ron. In order to protect them, Koharu agrees to come with Brainwashed Kakeru to go see Shirou. Unfortunately after Kakeru hands over Koharu to his pedo-dad he’s like ok well my job is done bye. ( ´_ゝ`) おまわりさん、こいつです。 End game notes: I’m somewhat convinced that Koharu is the original Shirou’s dead wife. Yea I don’t really know why Kakeru fell in love with Koharu to begin with and the deal with his brainwashing but that pedo end ruined everything lol. Also raaagggee because Koharu and Kakeru fucked in this route and pfft that’s the last guy in this game I wanted to see implied secks with.
Tooya Masamune – Masamune is the best guy in Koharu’s bunch. Like yea Senri is moe and all but Masamune is a むっつりスケベ who gets drunk on sugar. 萌工エエェェヾ(*｀Д´*)ﾉェェエエ工工 Oh my god the gap is adorable. Masamune is sort of the care taker of the ship and the chaperone of this field trip. He periodically reports to to Aion on the status of Norn and the kiddies there. For a while I wondered why the fuck is he able to magically fly back & forth from Japan to Hawaii in such a short span of time but it turns out that he’s actually friends with Natsuhiko. Or rather, the two of them were raised on the island where Aion was born and their relatives were the ones who created it. However since Natsuhiko was against the reset business he and Masamune couldn’t really see eye to eye so that’s why they’re technically enemies. Masamune of course keeps this a secret from everyone, including his now partner Koharu. So like most of the route Masamune spends teaching Koharu various things since she kinda grew up being on the run from the world and never got a chance to go to school or learn anything worthwhile. He seems like the nice reliable dude until one night Koharu runs into him and he’s in a foul mood. He’s like yo bitch I told you that you should watch yourself around men, like ME. He then grabs her and shoves his tongue down her throat lmao xD wtf. The next day, he feels like an asshole though, and I thought he was mad because he was being oniichan zoned BUT! It turns out he ate some of Koharu’s cookies and the sugar made him drunk and well drunk Masamune = RANNNDDAAYYY YEAH. (✧≖‿ゝ≖) Koharu doesn’t really understand what happened and when she tries to seek advice from the other girls they get embarrassed lol. She tries to act normal around Masamune when they study but it’s still pretty awkward lol. He then apologizes for kissing her but she says it’s no big deal. Masamune’s like NOOO GUILT so he suggests they break off their pairing and adds that he can’t have anyone “Special” to him.
In the fairy tale dream, Kakeru attempts to kiss her to she “eats the poison apple” but Masamune bursts in like AN HERO. He has to hold back his horndog urges because dat Snow White Koharun. Koharu’s like yo I ain’t no good girl and I’m tired of you getting my hopes up and then throwing them out the moment it’s convenient for you. Feeling like a butthole, Masamune hugs her and says that the reason he wanted to stop being her partner is because he was afraid he wouldn’t be able to hold back his sukebe urges and ravage her one day 😆 Koharu’s like COME AT ME BRO MY BODY IS READY ( ≖‿≖). He’s like wait hun, I can’t have a girlfriend until our journey ends so pls wait. So then pedobear Shirou and his army start attacking some village so Norn lands for a bit and they help protect the people there and assist the wounded. After a long day of working, Koharu comes to Masamune’s room to see how he’s doing and AWKWARDNESS ENSUES. Well that is until Masamune decides to stuff his face into Koharu’s boobs to re-energize himself and she happily pats him on the head ε-(*´∀`|萌|. His idle hands start to undo the ribbon on her shirt and even though she’s more than willing, ZA WARUDO cockblocks and he has to go report the Norn status to Aion as usual. Koharu wishes that she would have given him something sweet to eat so they’d be able to JUST FUCK ALREADYY XD. Hell yea Koharu ain’t no good girl, she even said so! The next day in town Koharu runs into Natsuhiko and do-M Setsu who just wants Koharu to step on his face with her heels ((((((((((ﾉ∀`)･ﾟ･｡ ｱﾋｬﾋｬﾋｬﾋｬ . Fortunately Masamune comes to save her and his sexual frustration is over 9000. He tells her he regrets not humping her the night before and tells her he’s ready to teach her some SEX ED YEAAAA. (/▽*＼)～♪ ｲﾔｧﾝ The following day they’re supposed to depart from that town but Mikoto and Sakuya run back to the town. Once Masamune hears this he follows after them. Apparently the battle hasn’t ended so Mikoto runs to protect everyone with her barrier but it really overworks her. She almost gets shot, but that’s when Sakuya takes the hit for her and dies like in his bad end. (´･ω･`；)
Koharu runs on to this scene and gets pissed off and BBQs everyone in the vicinity. After this the army basically starts using Koharu as their personal flamethrower so everyone is forced to stay in this area longer than planned. Masamune gets pissed of them constantly using Koharu saying he doesn’t give a fuck about their stupid war shit and despite the common belief, this isn’t what Aion desires. He keeps coming to see Koharu but for some reason he can’t bring himself to take her off her line of BBQ duty. One night Koharu sneaks back to the ship to visit Masamune but leaves immediately saying she needs to get back to her line of duty. He feels like an asshole for not stopping her and the next day her fire goes out of control. Masamune finds out that she’s not returned from battle and he’s pissed because he just found out that she’s been pretty much fighting armies of guys all on her own. He finds her walking around in ball of fire going oops I kinda can’t stop my BBQ grill here. He then uses his powers to see into the past and sees her real name – WHICH WE NEVER FIND OUT LOL THANKS OTOMATE. He hugs her and apologizes for not being able to save her and I guess thanks to the power of rabu her fire doesn’t fry him to death. Once her fire ends, he says her BBQ duties are over and she’s coming with him. He kisses her and it’s so hot it knocks her out. Meanwhile, Masamune tells Natsuhiko that he intends to dump his duties for Aion and run away with Koharu. That night, Nanami uses her powers to erase Koharu’s memories about Sakuya’s death and Itsuki then uses his powers to show her a dream where she and Masamune are getting married. Natsuhiko helps Masamune in his escape plans and takes him and a sleeping Koharu on his personal ship. Basically they end up helping Natsuhiko with ship maintenance and live together with him and dat do-Mkun Setsu. In the end, Masamune tells Koharu he wants to have a real wedding. Also they reveal that basically the hiyokos are created by Natsuhiko or at least one of his relatives so he has connection to all of them and uses them as spies on the ship. Bad Ends: If you go into Masamune’s room while he’s not there, a drunk Itsuki and Ron play around with her….until Masamune comes back and kills them both (○´ﾟωﾟ｀):;*.’:;ﾌﾞｯ. In the 2nd bad end, the army climbs aboard the ship and invades into Mikoto’s room trying to get Koharu back to the battlefield. From that day forth Koharu continues BBQing stuff but at night she sleeps in bed with Mikoto who’s become an unstable mess after Sakuya’s death. First bad end was funny, not gonna lie lol.
Muroboshi Ron – Ron suffers the same fate as Kakerude 1. I have no idea why he fell in love with Nanami and 2. I don’t think he’s right for Nanami because he’s really fucking creepy. I seriously think the only reason I put up with Ronny is his manboobs of steel and Sugitan’s voice :lol:. Ron is a lazy ass who just spends most of his time sleeping and eating like a sloth. He’s actually the oldest one on this field trip, being 25 but he acts no different than some lazy child. In fact being paired up with Nanami she’s the more mature one. Ron’s secretly assisting Natsuhiko in whatever he needs done and is more like Natsuhiko’s spy. He can’t remember anyone’s names and walks around with his manboobs showing cause his shirts always open. He has no powers but he can steal other people’s powers with Aion’s help. He irritates the fuck out of Nanami that she always has the urge to stab him with her kunai. She threatens to break up their partnership but he realizes that if he can’t get stuff out of her willfully, he’ll have to use some FORCE. They end up staying in a hotel in town at night because Nanami passes out and Ron takes her there, strips her clothes off and puts her to bed lol. He then threatens to kill her and she’s like come at me bro. Well he does. He then goes into rapist mode, gets on top of her and kisses her pressing her hands down. Nanami manages to escape being the awesome ninja that she is and punches his douchey sunglasses off. He pisses her off so much she starts crying but then his dumb jokes cheer her up again so she tells him to GTFO her room lmao xD; This is basically their love & hate relationship and in order to win Ron over you actually have to be extremely hard to get otherwise things aren’t gonna go too well for you. Basically Ron wants to use Nanami for her powers but Nanami refuses to be used by anyone especially when it comes to her memory wiping. Ron then reveals that he’s nearly blind and Natsuhiko made him a pair of glasses to help him improve his vision. However, Natsuhiko promised to make him artificial eyes that would give him perfect vision as long as he does what he says. That’s why he’s basically Natsuhiko’s slave forced to do all his dirty work etc.щ(ಥДಥщ)
As much as this was painful to hear, in the end Ron is still a cold blooded creeper. A few hours later Nanami catches Ron knocking Mikoto out cold and realizes he’s part of the rebellion movement on the ship. Nanami begs him not to do anything horrible and he says “ok I’ll spare Mikoto if you tell me your powers and let me use them, in return.” Nanami agrees because the next day no one can remember anything since she wiped everyone’s memories of what happened. She then admits that her powers are to erase people’s memories and he’s like oh you’re the girl who was forced to erase memories by her parents. She then tells him the details in return to protect Mikoto. Nanami tells him to turn himself in, and she’ll take part of his punishment but he’s like lol nope. She calls him heartless but he’s like “well I DO have things I like” as he touches her cheek. wwwhhhaat Ron pls. Soo apparently Ron has now fallen for Nanami? Was it the kuudere that made you (*´ｪ｀*)ｷｭﾝ♡ Ronny? Ron then tells Nanami “baby if you wipe my memories, I’m all yours” because I guess he’s looking for an excuse to drop himself out of his mission due to his feelings for her. Nanami’s already fallen in love with him by then and says she doesn’t want to do this and begs him not to do anymore bad things. He then grabs and kisses her and they almost screw until Natsuhiko calls and cockblocks ﾌﾟｯ(※థэథ)∵.*.∵. See this is a problem in order for Ron to return her feelings, she has to wipe his memories but by doing so she’s afraid that he’ll forget his feelings for her. This is the part where I facepalm because of Sakuya route dejavu （ಠ_ಠ）. So then Natsuhiko comes with his usual attack on the ship and Norn goes along with him leaving a poor Nanami. After this Nanami and Co. go to the Aion island as usual and get the breakdown from tl;dr-chan. Suddenly Ronny shows up again and shoots at Koharu (though its not a real bullet) and all it does is make Koharu throw BBQ flames everywhere so he steals her fire powers. He then burns Aion and destroys it making Masamune go into a fit of despair.
Anyway after this Ron prances off and Nanami follows him. He gives her one last chance to wipe his memories and she finally does making him basically a dependent blob on her. The 2 of them live in a shack together and the Norn peeps come visit them once in a while (though most of them are butthurt because Nanami basically went to live happily ever after with the rebel.) Ron is practically blind by this point but Nanami is determined to find Natsuhiko so he can make prosthetic eyes for him. Ron has forgotten most things but he trolls Nanami on a daily basis asking her to “show him” WHAT ISS LOVEEE. Also he has to help her with cooking cause it’s so terrible it causes food poisoning. Additionally he’s finally able to remember her name. In the bad end, before she wipes his memory, Ron asks Nanami that if it doesn’t “change” him, to kill him. So she wipes his memory, they go live in the shack but he’s in a coma for many days. When he finally wakes up, he points a gun at her but Nanami’s already prepared for this day to come..so she points one back at him. He lets her shoot him and before doing so, Nanami says she’ll be “following him shortly” :(. In the breakaway end, Nanami tells Ron she doesn’t care if he uses her and agrees to do whatever he says. Sge comes to Natsuhiko’s ship with Ron and Setsu and Ron tells her the only way for her to run away is by erasing his memories. Nanami refuses to do so and instead she goes around wiping memories of whoever Ron tells her to. Thing is, she walks around doing it with a blindfold so she doesn’t have to see who she does it to and she refuses to talk to him so she basically becomes……Rei AyaNanami. When he threatens to sell her because she’s boring him, she cries and begs him not to abandon her because she loves him so much. (´；ω；｀) At first I didn’t really understand why the fuck Ron fell in love with Nanami (I could see why she fell for him.) I mean he’s 9 years older than Nanami so can I just assume he loves kuudere lolis as the reason then? 😆 After doing all of his ends, and observing what choices I had to pick during my run throughs it became clear: By constantly rejecting to be his tool, Ronny fell for Nanamin and only in the end did she agree to do as he says – by wiping his memories. When you fall for Ron early on, that’s where you get the tool end and he basically takes advantage of Nanami’s feelings for him because he’s just a terrible person overall lol. Oh well my feelings on Ron are pretty 複雑。 I like him POST memory wipe obviously but he had so many nice scenes prior to it…but they were probably all just an act since ultimately Ron’s goal is to just get his eyesight back. (´・ω・｀)
Azuma Natsuhiko – YEA BEST FOR LAST. Seriously I thought Natsuhikki was this weirdo who was always playing with gadgets in his lab but he’s A BABE. Well actually anyone who can put up with Mikoto’s tsun-nami is a babe and both Itsuki and Natsuhiko deserve medals. (Sakuya failed cause he got all wangsty about it.) Mikoto picks to be alone for searching for the rebellion group since..Natsuhiko is obviously the rebellion group lol. So basically she spends time trying to catch Natsuhiko along with Sorata. She gets so frustrated she locks herself up in her room and cries because she can’t catch Natsuhikomon. Sakuya and Itsuki tell her to stop looking for the rebels. Mikoto decides to quit much to Sorata’s dismay. The following day, Mikoto gets abducted to Natsuhikki’s alien spaceship after Ronny throws her off Norn lol. Meanwhile Sorata does some research and discovers that the time period he’s come to isn’t the taisho era that he knows and this isn’t the past at all. (More on this later.) Meanwhile back at the ranch Mikoto keeps imagining all these do_S scenes with Natushiko but he’s actually a pretty chill dude lol. They basically end up arguing with each other over each other’s stubborness lmao xD Mostly Mikoto’s tsun-nami though. Natsuhiko tells Mikoto that he needs to kill Yuiga Shirou because the dude caused war by mass selling weapons all over the world in 2056. Mikoto says that she thought something was weird when they were supposed to go from Japan to America but for a month they’ve been floating around and they’re still in Japan. She says its possible someone is controlling the “will” of the ship and that’s why they haven’t gone anywhere (aka Masamune). Natsuhiko tells her if she wants to know the truth to cooperate with him in killing Shirou. Mikoto’s like fuck yea let’s do it bro. Natsuhiko then starts getting deredere for Mikoto and even going as far as helping her when she wants to protect a town from war. He also then has robots attend to her since she always shits bricks when he comes into her room. Unfortunately his signs of affection never seem to be taken the right way and he gets really frustrated. The fact that he continues to try and please Mikoto is so sweet though because well it turns out, he fell in love when he saw her cry. (✧≖‿ゝ≖)
Natsuhiko then makes her a little hiyoko that looks like the Norn hiyokos to take care of her instead. The hiyoko tells Mikoto that she’s weak and not strong how she thinks, and she starts to cry. She continues the whole protecting towns with her barrier but it really tires her out so she starts to warm up to Natsuhiyoko and talk to it. And yes it’s a Natsuhiyoko indeed because basically Natsuhiko uses the hiyoko as a “chat device” but Mikoto thinks she’s talking to a programmed AI. xD One night he tricks her into going with him up to the ship deck so he can show her the starry sky. Aww isn’t he sweet lmao. He even blushes the next day when Mikoto gets all deredere for him telling him she wants to go see the stars with him again xDDD (o;;;:´;Д;`:;;;p[｡+ﾟ:.萌え萌え.:ﾟ+｡]q Mikoto starts crying again when she finds out that Natsuhiko intends to kill all the psychic power users on Norn. She says she doesn’t want warn and neither do any of them so if he just told them the truth they could all cooperate. He comes into her room and hugs her telling her the first reset was in 2085. He tells her that its actually 8075 now and not 1919 because this is now after the 4th reset. And Aion’s basically been taking powers and transferring them between people over the years to “hold on to” until it’s time for another reset. Natsuhiko wants to stop this reset cycle so he wants to kill the psychic power users while the powers are still in them before Aion gets them back. This explains why the “taisho era” isn’t the one they knew about because it’s a different world where people were not taught what guns are to avoid wars. But then Yuiga Shirou comes along derping and giving guns to everyone ONCE AGAIN. During one of the battles Natsuhiko’s ship gets attacked by Shirou’s army and he dives to protect Mikoto. Due to this he gets badly injured but the 2 of them get taken in by some couple of old folks and treated for wounds. Mikoto’s wounds aren’t bad but Natsuhiko’s out cold. When he wakes up he’s got AMNESIA and all he remembers is Mikoto’s name. Mikoto blames herself for not casting a more powerful barrier to protect them. After a few days Natsuhiko gets better but Mikoto insists to take care of him and do everything for him because his memory has not returned. They stay in the village together and he gets popular with the ladies because they find out he’s not her husbando :lol:. Seriously, there’s a war going on, guns everywhere and Mikoto and Natsuhiko are having their newlywed wife in some isolated village. Plot, what plot? ( ﾟ∀ﾟ)ｱﾊﾊ八八ﾉヽﾉヽﾉヽﾉ ＼ / ＼/ ＼
One night they go see the stars together and afterwards Natsuhiko asks her what he is to her or what she is supposed to be to him. Her immediate thought is that he just wanted to use her, but the him now with no memories is a different person. She tells him about the past and he’s like if I’m such a horrible person, why do you stay with me? You coulda abandoned me and run off. He then tells her the fact that when he says her name and the fact that he even remembered her name is proof of his feelings for her. He asks her to trust him and says that he loves her. Mikoto is surprised but happy and she starts to cry. Overcome with emotion, they hop to the bedroom and do the mattress mambo. (/▽*＼)～♪ ｲﾔｧﾝ The next day her live-in husbando makes her breakfast but their happy times are interrupted when Ronny comes prancing in with his guns shooting at her. He’s apparently here to pick up Natsuhiko but Mikoto tells him to GTFO because Natsuhiko’s lost all his memories. Somehow the gunshots bring back Natsuhiko’s memories and he shoots Ron’s eyeglasses off leaving him nearly blind and helpless so he stops the pewpew party. Mikoto’s disappointed that his memories are back which means their newlywed life is over. However, Natsuhiko says that even if his memories are back he still loves Mikoto and he promises not to kill the psychic power Norners. Ron and Setsu explain that everyone on the ship now knows about them being the rebellion group and that Shirou’s now invaded the ship. They also add the fact one of the people on the ship was working for Shirou, his son Kakeru who was brainwashed thanks to the earring he was wearing. Ron tried to take it away from him but as we all remember in Koharu’s route, she got it back. When they’re back on the ship Natsuhiko cuddles with Mikoto in bed telling her he hates resets because it resets everything, like scientific progress. Since he’s a researcher this irritates him. He also mentions how Shirou just uses the psychic power users as his personal army rather than for the reset like it was intended for. That evening he takes her outside to show her a meteor shower (♡´౪`♡).
He then tells her that he’s a descendant of those who originally created Aion. She’s on an island where his family lived for generations and he wants to go there to stop the resets because he wants to see humanity progress without having it constantly be wiped. When they get there, they run into Masamune who was raised on the same island and is a descendant of scientists who worked on making Aion. The other Norners are there and they tell Mikoto that Kakeru got so brainwashed he went with Shirou and abandoned all of them. They also inform them Shirou’s dead and so Ron’s like “well my job here is done bye.” Hey what happened to Ronny wanting to …get a new pair of eyes. I mean what the hell can he even do now that his glasses are also broken. Consistency where. Natsuhiko goes to talk to Aion and tells her that she should just become the almighty god and threaten people to stop fighting. She tells him that people won’t listen to an emotionless robot and in the end it has to be a human to pull the reset switch. She also adds that even if she tries to stop those who refuse to stop fighting it’s basically fighting fire with fire and it would just be another world war and the only way to stop it is to …reset once more. Mikoto’s like yo robobitch what the fuck can we do to stop the fire? And Aion’s like people can’t give up their weapons, the fact that you still carry a gun is proof of it. And well they can’t figure out what to do without a reset so I guess they end up returning their powers to Aion anyway. ┐(‘～`；)┌ Everyone packs their shit and is on their way back to their respective homes, though Mikoto has to say goodbye to Sakuya since she’s going with Natsuhiko. Heishi and Itsuki keep their powers so they can go bring back a brainwashed Kakerude. Mikoto and Natsuhiko live happily ever after as he works with his research and Aion for the next reset. In the bad end, Natsuhiko decides that he must rid the world of all weapons no matter the cost and he leaves Mikoto behind. He ends up getting killed by Shirou and Mikoto is so depressed that Sakuya then has Nanami wipe all her memories of Natsuhiko. All Mikoto can do now is have dreams of watching the stars with someone she doesn’t know. Too much assumption left in this route but I guess after all the stuff that went on a lot of pieces pretty much come together. Regardless, Natsuhiko is so adorable I am having trouble deciding whether I like him or Akito more lol.
Sorata’s Epilogue – If you choose not to go with any of da ladies, Sorata basically hangs around the ship playing hide & seek with Aioin and getting cockblocked by Masamune. She calls herself Aine and the chicks on the ship can see and talk to her too. The reason she won’t talk to Sorata anymore is she can only say the tl;dr she’s programmed to do.. However after 3 resets she’s kinda busted so she can only make facial expressions now. Masamune then explains Sorata is actually from the original generation and he’s been in frozen sleep for 2000 years. He was against the reset so they put him to sleep next to Aion for all these years because he was the son of one of the ppl who made Aion. And basically as all the resets happened, all the scientists were cooped up on this island making sure that each time the world was reborn, it wouldn’t turn out to be the fail like the previous. They also figured Sorata would grow up to “save Aion” or build a better replacement for her. Sorata’s hey dude I’m 12 I can’t do this shit lol but Masamune mentions that Natsuhiko basically was against the reset too and wanted to destroy both Aion and Sorata. Aion basically protected Sorata all these years which is why he was able to see her. Sorata then has a chance to look into the past where he discovers that there was another guy named Sorata who was Aion’s creater and at the time her name was Aine. She was just learning emotions at the time to the point that she was nearly like a realistic human. Due to this she fell in love with him but she never got a chance to tell him because the scientists wanted to use her to do that “reset” of humanity. Deciding he was against this, Sorata grabbed Aine and ran but then he got hit by a car and died. Aine never got a chance to tell him her feelings and instead she ran into pedoShirou who was in Gendou Ikari mode and determined to resurrect his dead wife. Rather than resurrect her though, he found some crazy way to wait for her soul to be reborn once more along with his own. On top of this, before dying the original Sorata told Aine to never say her emotions out loud and only to sing for him. So for years she’s never really talked except when on command by Shirou who also renamed her to Aion. Aion has basically been deteriorating over the years because the 2 ways to kill her are 1. burn her to a crisp or 2. have her heart basically “die” and by having her lover & creator get taken away from her she’s been “dying” for like 6000 years. So when Sorata was reborn, she found him, and put him into a frozen sleep so she could protect him. When Sorata finds all of this out he’s like wtf I’m not the guy you loved and I can’t be his replacement. So then the writers of this game gave up and made Sorata go “oh but I still want to be with you Aine~ and you can speak now” and suddenly the 2 of them are happily rolling around in the grass and we see the spirit of the original Sorata touching Aine’s cheek. Aine’s like Sorata I want to be with you and live with you in harmony harmony aaallways~THE END LOL.
WHAT THE FUCKING BALLS IS THIS LOLOL WHAT HAPPENED, HOW WAS SHIROU EVEN ABLE TO DO HIS BODY TELEPORTATION FOR SO MANY YEARS. Did Aion finally decide to die? Did Shirou ever even manage to find his wife reborn? Or is it possible that his reborn wife is actually Koharu which is why he’s so obsessed with her omfg. Would that make Kakeru have a mother complex then?? Omg Evangelion references everywhere ／(^o^)＼ﾅﾝﾃｺｯﾀｲ. Well I guess I can see where the rage of the Japanese fans comes from but oh well even if the ultimate goal was a dicking move, at least the journey was fun lol. I made a timeline based on what I understood from the game:
Also I’m having a bit of a conflict in regards to the ORIGINAL Sorata and reborn Sorata. The original Sorata at the beginning of the game heard a singing which he wouldn’t have heard if hadn’t made Aion yet right? But Sorata was only asleep for 2000 years next to Aion. So how in the world was it year 2015 for him? Unless it was 2015 years AFTER one of the impacts? This is still unknown to me and so my timeline is probably borked but oh well whatever. I also think ironically the “resets” are maybe also related to each time you “reset” to go into a new heroine? That would be 3 resets + Sorata’s epilogue being the 4th one. I blame the creators for cutting the epilogue in complete asshattery manner and forcing the player to make all sorts of stupid assumptions :lol:. On topic of Evangelion references, I am seriously convinced because:
- Shirou = Gendo = Wanted to create impacts to revive his wife.
- Koharu = Ikari Shinji = has the power to destroy but doesn’t want to use it, which is why she’s similar to Senri
- Kakeru = Kaworu (haha it even rhymes) = cause he loves Koharu but at the same time he’s just following orders to cause chaos
- Mikoto = Asuka = Obvious one here since both are tsunderes with high pride in their work not realizing what they’re doing isn’t exactly for the good. Asuka has the comples with her mom while for Mikoto it’s with Sakuya.
- Nanami = Rei = Ayananami Rei. Need I say more? lol. Though in a way I could maybe switch Koharu and Nanami because eventually Koharu gives in and does as she says and Nanami keeps running away like Shinji did. Well either way it works.
- The scientists who made Aion = SEELE = wanna clear and reset humanity for the “ideal world”. The angels they send would be like the psyshic power users.
- Natsuhiko = Misato & Wille = The organization who wants to stop Gendo and SEELE and the angels etc. (Only in Eva 3.0)
I think I loved this game for all the wrong reasons (most of them being fuck yea Evangelion parody lmaooo.) XD The biggest thing that stood out were the characters and their relationships. I loved them all so much (even the 3 stooges Sakuya, Ron and KakeRUDE) that I’d even throw my money for a fandisk where everyone can just BE HAPPY. All the fathers in this game are utter failures and should die in a fire especially Kakeru’s ( ಠ益ಠ ). While playing some routes I thought that everything could have taken place in some school setting for psychic power users but once I did the last 4 guys, I was like OOOHH OK and even Sorata’s existence made sense. The problem is of course the story and consistency. The game obviously wants you to collect clues and details about the story but once I’ve collected everything and I’m ready to put things together I realize SHIT DON’T BE MATCHING YO. Things in 1 route contradict others and while it’s obvious a lot of events take place around the same time throughout the routes (like the dream sequence) there are little things here & there that just throw everything off. The ending of the epilogue left me going “whut that’s it?” Seriously it felt like you were in the middle of a movie, suddenly the projector breaks down and the showing is cancelled permanently. (lll￣□￣)ｶﾞｰﾝ!!
This kind of thing is really irritating and rather than it feeling like “oh this is a nice end to think about” it just felt like they had to cut off because they had to reach a deadline to get the game out and couldn’t finish it. The game already got delayed for a week, coulda delayed it another week and finished that epilogue Otomate! 😆 I highly recommend the following play order to make the most sense of everything: Senri, Akito, Heishi, Sakuya, Itsuki, Kakeru, Ron, Masamune, Natsuhiko. My top 3 dudes are Natsuhiko, Akito and Itsuki but Senri and Masamune hold a special place in my heart. As far as heroines go, I liked Nanami for a while and she was my top, but after doing Natsuhiko’s route I really ended up like Mikoto a lot. I got nothing against Koharu, but the poor child is so easily swayed and airheaded, I just had difficulty liking her or relating to her feelings. I think she was at her best in Masamune’s route though. I felt like during the game I had a lot of stuff I’d say here but I guess most of it was already said during my review. Too much stuff is left up to assumption so if anyone has something different to offer feel free to leave it in the comments. Still I think it was too much to leave up to the players and I would be lying if I didn’t say that I’m a bit disappointed it turned out this way. Ultimately if all they wanted to do was show relationships between those with psychic powers, they should have just made some “psychic academy” otome game. Once they threw in the time loops and FUTURE TECHNOLOGY and war it became a mess lol XD. Also, too many fucking flashbacks omfg, how many times do we need to see Ronny kissing Nanami in a span of 10 minutes :lol:. Still though, the music was nice, the art was great and a lot of scenes made me (*´ｪ｀*)ｷｭﾝ♡ so ultimately I’m not butthurt and I don’t regret getting this game. I heard the drama CDs are funny so I’ll be listening to those before this game joins my others on the bookshelf ( ≖‿≖).
P.S. Setsu route in the FD pls. Preferably with Mikoto. (;ﾟ∀ﾟ)=3ﾊｧﾊｧ
