Emily Whiteley’s parents were killed when she was 4 years old and she was saved by her butler Ralph Pendleton who rescued her from the burning house. He took her to some house in the boonies and raised her along with some other house servants until she turned 16. After solving the mystery of a lost cat for the queen, Emily is given a special crown to be the queen’s official appointed detective – along with Herlock Holmes, the son of the famous Sherlock Holmes. She moves to London and enrolls in a special detective class at the Harrington academy. While she studies to be a better detective, she’s also working on solving the mystery being her parents’ murder – which was written off as a “fire accident” 12 years earlier. This is the PS Vita port of the 2013 PSP game.
Wow this game took longer than I expected – but mostly because it collided with a new FF14 patch (but honestly what else is new with me?) The story is about our heroine Misaki who with her classmate Kokoro finds a stray kitten near the school grounds. While carrying the kitten home, she bumps into the manager of Prince Pia Carrot – a family restaurant full of ikeman waiters (on a trial period because all the other pia carrots are full of eroge ladies.) The kitten jumps on him breaking all the dishes he bought for the restaurant. Misaki feels bad and to take responsibility, she decides to work there part time along with Kokoro. Her school’s student council pres & vice pres are also on the waiter team and from here Misaki’s restaurant adventures begin.
It’s 50 years into the future, in the country of Cloud. Cloud’s been plagued with a massive drug war on the drug called “Star” and has been ignored by other countries to help stop the spread. The drug, like any drug, has destroyed families and caused gang wars and mass murders. In order to combat the ongoing problem of both dealers and drug abusers (coined as “Stardust”), a team of “Angels” has been formed. These angels go around trying to capture and rehabilitate the drug abusers in order to help get to the root of the problem, and to put an end to the drug war. Our heroine, Sorano Fuu got involved in the drug war because her parents became dealers in order to support the family. Due to getting in a spat with another dealer, Fuu’s parents were killed when she was 7 years old. She was rescued by a pair of Angels and decided to then grow up and enroll in a special academy to become an Angel herself. Now 13 years later, Fuu is 20 and has graduated from the academy. She’s put in a team with 4 other Angels, Yun, Mict, Tchicai and Rayla and the leader Izuki, going on missions to try to find and capture the drug abusers in the town of Akatsuki. During the time spent with her team mates, she discovers more about their pasts with connections to her own. Lots of spoilery text ahead so skip to final thoughts to avoid as usual!
