So here I was thinking we were done with space oniichan adventures and gonna settle down for a nice peaceful fandis….WELL I WAS WRONG. As the title says, this is apparently a giant appendix for all the stuff they forgot to mention in the first game (or retroactively added because why not). While the game contains short after stories, they are merely a shadow of the Eclipse – the main chunk of the game that focuses on explaining the entire timeline of the past 17,000 years. Warning for incoming confusing text walls.
So this game ended up flying under everyone’s radar because 1) no one understood wtf the trash pick up system really was and 2) why are there Gundams in my otome!? The good news is the system was actually really easy and just terribly misleading on their site. The bad news however, there’s still Gundams, and unless you’re a huge Gundam fan, the battles get really repetitive and tedious which may have been ultimately this game’s downfall. Our story begins with our heroine, Eve, who is some ancient sage that’s been alive for 3000 years. She lives in an undersea shelter called the Neosphere with her AI Cradle. Meanwhile the outside world the earth is in shambles and 2 guys, Sud and Atharva manage to fall into the Neopshere. They are being chased by the government who uses a robot golem to break into there as well. When Sud is hurt, Eve calls upon her powers for help and summons the ancient GUNDAM TEARBLADE.
Akagami Mashiro climbed & fell off a pomegranate tree when she was younger but miraculously awakened. Now many years later, she’s attending university while she works part time job at an ice cream store. She goes to a mirror exhibit at a museum with her friend Ataru and the mirror on the wall talks to her bringing her to an “Insanity World” filled with various mirrors. The voice in the mirror then says that Mashiro is the “Snow White” who has to save one of her “dwarves” and based on the mirror she chooses, it will decide who the one being saved will be. Nonsensical intro because the truth is in the spoilers so skip those and jump to my final thoughts if you don’t want to see!
So when I first read reviews/heard about the system in this game I was horrified. People claimed it was worse than Wand of Fortune, oh the travesty! Well turns out, it’s not a bad system after all, and now I’m a pro gardener and I fully completed the game. But more on that in my final thoughts! Our story takes place at Suzunomori Gakuen, a gardening boarding school where our heroine Misaki Hana enrolls. Her grandfather once graduated from this school and he won the flower show with his “legendary flower.” Now Hana is following in his footsteps, to grow the best flower that there ever was!
