I didn’t realize it’s actually been 2 years since I finished Code Realize since the English version actually only came out a year ago. Due to this I was a bit rusty on what happened but fortunately the after stories gave a brief review of what happened in case people like me forgot. The FD also adds an original mafia gang story as well as routes for Finis and Sholmes (which take place as if they were in the first game’s story.) The final section is a little bit of time Cardia spends with Dela-chan’s daily activities.
It’s 1853 in the outskirts of England where our heroine Cardia lives forever alone in a dirty abandoned house because daddy told her so. By living alone she basically just sits in her room all day wishing for her life to end because nothing really matters anymore. The queen’s royal guards lead by Leon Hard (I swear I think it’s Leonhart lol) break into her house to try and capture her. The thing is, she’s not an easy pray because her dad has coined her a “monster” due to the fact that anything she touches melts like it’s being burned with acid. When one of the guard dogs tries to bite her, it melts his face off. Fortunately, master thief Arsene Lupin rescues her and then tells her that she has a stone on her chest called the Horologium which was implanted into her body by her father Isaac Beckford. Lupin is on the search for both Isaac and those who are behind the terrorist attacks in London. Since Cardia wants to find her father as well and figure out wtf he really wanted her to do, she comes along and so their steampunk adventure begins.
Let’s be honest, this isn’t a sequel or an alternative Dia. This is really just Quin Rose trying to suck their remaining customer base dry by splitting the Dia game in half and releasing 2 separate games. This time, Boris, Julius, Gray, Nightmare and Ace get routes but after finishing the game I can definitely say they could have easily combined the 2 into 1 disk by simply cutting out all the fat. Anyway I think I’m going into my final thoughts in the intro paragraph so I’ll stop here :lol:. Basically Alice is once again in Clover no Kuni and she goes through the looking glass to find herself once again in the Country of Diamonds, with no recollection of any of the events that happened in the previous Dia game.
This is the fandisk to the original VitaminZ game and takes place immediately before and continues up until way after the A4 & P2 graduate. Additional bonuses also include some individual “after” endings for the GTR and R+ as well. The story is it’s now the time right before the guys are about to graduate but the B6 decide to go off on vacation for 3 months so now the graduation has to be handled by Manami and the GTR.
Our heroine Alice Liddell finds herself falling down as usual with Peter holding her in his arms. She tries to ask him wtf’s going on but he magically vanishes without saying a word and dumps her into the country of Diamonds. The country of Diamonds major areas are the Castle of Diamonds, The Hatter Mansion, The Train Station and the Graveyard & Art Museum (which are right next to each other.) Alice is now in a new country but unlike her previous move from Heart to Clover, nobody here remembers who she is – except for Nightmare. Suddenly characters like Nightmare and Ace are shotas, Dee & Dum are only in adult form and Vivaldi, Gowland and Pierce are missing in action. Additionally the castle of Diamonds is run by the queen of Diamonds, Crysta Snowpigeon and the new prime minister is now a black rabbit named Sidney Black. Over at the art museum & cemetery area is another mafia with a leader by the name of Jericho Bermuda who is a dodo bird. Alice has to figure out what the hell is going on and at the same time try to convince everyone to like her again. Unfortunately unlike the country of hearts, everyone’s feelings towards her are as cold as a frozen diamond.
