The game begins with Suzuhara Sorata, he is the elementary student. He along with his classmate goes to 国会議事堂 (National Diet Building) for a study trip. When they are inside one of the room, Sorata sees the girl and hears a song while his friend can’t hear it at all. Suddenly he is in the other place, he can’t move and very confused. And there is a girl with a pink hair helps him, Sorata feels cold and this girl brings him to the back alley and she swings her hand to make it warmer. From this girl Sorata finds out that he goes back to the past, Taisho era. The girl said she needs to go home and asks where his home is. He said he is from a far away country, a future. Sorata asks what her name is, but she can’t even remember her name. Since he doesn’t have a place to go home, the girl invites him to tag along.
They see a ship in the sky and following it. When the ship is descent from the sky Sorata is very shocked to see it because it is nothing like a ship. They go inside but are attacked by two guys. And eventually they are saved by 2 girls (Makoto and Nanami). They are treated as a guest there. There are 10 peoples in the ship, 2 girls and 8 guys. The girls are Kuga Mikoto, Shiranui Nanami. The guys are Yuiga Kakeru, Nijou Sakuya, Touya Masamune, Otomaru Heishi, Ichinose Senri, Muroboshi Ron, Shukuri Akito, and Kagami Itsuki.
Mikoto asks both of them whether they are physic or not. The amnesic girl admits that she is a Physic (能力者) but Sorata is not. He is only a lost child and she wants to help him finds his home. Sorata reveals himself that he is from future and makes everyone speechless. But they believe his word and he too can stay in the ship until he finds his way home. They notice the girl is wearing the same uniform and asks where she got that. She receives it from someone.
Kakeru and Masamune bring the girl and Sorata to meet Senri who locks himself inside his house for almost 5 days. At first he won’t go outside but is threatened by Masamune. A moment later the ship is shaking and there is sound of a blast; Akita comes and tells them to go to Cafeteria.
Seeing that everyone is okay they inspect the ship and find a hole in one of the wall. Kakeru uses his power to cover the wall, this makes Sorata shocks. He assumes they are magicians who are using a bio-science. Kakeru is laughing, saying that Sorata is an interesting kid. It seems Kakeru’s power is to control/produce plants. Kakeru asks what the girl’s power is, but she goes silent and says her power is not great.
Masamune goes to find Kakaru, telling him to collect peaches. The girl volunteers to go to kitchen to find a basket. When she comes back Kakeru asks where Senri is, the girl says she sees him inside the kitchen. Kakeru grins happily and goes to fetch Senri (by force). After the four of them finish gathering the peaches, they wash the peaches in the river. Kakeru says to be careful because there is a strange fish in there. The girl takes out her memo to write down what she has learned; it seems she knows about the ship from a traveller. Then the girl suddenly remembers her name, her name is Koharu. It is the name that is given by a traveler. She doesn’t have a surname and doesn’t know what her real name is, but she wants to be called as Koharu.
Back in the main hall, they are arguing about the previous attack. It seems the culprit is among them. So Kakeru proposes the idea to make a group of 2 people. So they can watch each other.
Koharu is paired with Kakeru, Senri with Masamune, Mikoto with Sakuya, Nanami with Ron, Akito with Heishi. When Kakeru and Koharu are in the kitchen, he says she is pretty admirable because she writes everything into her note. And also she must be careful because some people can lie. Koharu asks what kind of lie.
Kakeru: You think I’m man right?
And this makes the misunderstanding between them, she thinks Kakeru is a girl. She then apologizes because calling him Kakeru-kun is not appropriate and calls him Kakeru-chan. ( ﾟДﾟ)ァﾊﾊ八八ﾉヽﾉヽﾉヽﾉ ＼ / ＼/ ＼
This makes Kakeru laughs so hard, and Koharu keeps apologizing which makes him feel guilty. Later on Kakeru says that he proposes the pair idea (not 3 or 4 people per group) to make all of them get closer. Koharu says if it’s Kakeru, she is sure that she will be in fun and can get along with him nicely. He is on silence for a moment but eventually he smiles.
At night Mikoto asks Koharu how is her day with Kakeru. She says they don’t do much but she is get along with him. Mikoto then says if it’s her it will be impossible, she better be careful around him because he has a twisted personality.
Next day in the kitchen, Akita and Kakeru are talking about champaign. Koharo who never hears about it write it down on her note. She also asks Akito how to make it. He complains saying something like why he should trouble himself to explain it to her. Kakeru then is lying, he says that Hiyoko (ヒヨコ) is flying toward him. This makes him to run away immediately ( ´∀｀)ヵヵヵ. Kakeru brings her to library to read a book about plants, and they decide to plant strawberry. Koharu says she can’t wait to eat it with him.
In front of the cafeteria, Itsuki teases Koharu, he invites her to take ofuru together. Koharu immediately says something like it’s nice if Kakeru-chan can join too. This makes Itsuki teases both of them, in the short time they are already get closed and its makes him envy. Koharu in panic says that it’s a joke, but Kakeru is blushing. Before Koharu goes inside the bathroom, Kakeru whispers to her “It is prohibited to say that kind of joke to a man.” This time it’s Koharu who is blushing.
Back in her room, Koharu finds out her strawberry’s pot is wilting; she rushes to the rooftop to give it sunlight. There she finds Kakeru and he says Koharu gives the plant to much water that’s why it is wilting. With Kakeru’s advice, Koharu nurses it back to health until one day the plant blooms. She shows it to Kakeru and congrats her. He also says that flower resembles her. Suddenly he is mumbling “what is this emotion. It is a strange feeling.” Then he hugs her, Koharu asks what’s wrong. He doesn’t know why he did it but he wants to hug her. He apologizes and mumbles, you are not alone anymore, and it’s fine. But Koharu is pretty dense and kills the mood. Then Itsuki and Heishi come inside the room, both of them tease Kakeru a lot, it seem they overheard everything since the door is opened. With smile on his face, Kakeru attacks them with his power; it makes Heishi screaming and Itsuki laughing ( ´∀｀)ヵヵヵ
When Kakeru and Koharu take care of the growing strawberry, Mikoto and Sakuya come to see them. Mikoto notice dirt in Koharu and she used her handkerchief to clean it. She says Koharu is a girl so she should be neater. Koharu is touched by her words and she wants to copy Mikoto’s behavior to make her as a proper lady. Mikoto doesn’t mind it as long she doesn’t copy everything because she too also has some faults. After Mikoto goes to find Itsuki, Koharu notices dirt in Kakeru’s ear, she reaches to clean it but Kakeru slaps her and away. Kakeru apologizes, he dislikes it when people touch his earring.
Later on Koharu doesn’t eat and still hungry, Itsuki notices and he is asking why. Koharu wants to become a proper lady like Mikoto, Itsuki asks her for whose sake she wants becomes a lady. Koharu realizes she does it for Kakeru. Then Itsuki gives her a red kimono, he says it suits her hairs.
At night Kakeru talks with Koharu, he wants her to stop copying Mikoto because she is already a fine woman. He also wants to tell her a story about his earring. Apparently the earring was from his dad. He was killed when Kakeru is 10 years old. Since then he is alone but he can survive because of his power.
One day Kakeru is sick, Koharu offers to take care of him. At night Kakeru is delirious; he calls his dad in his sleep and when he wakes up Koharu holds Kakeru’s hand to calm him. In the morning Akito and Koharu come to Kakeru’s room to give him food, when he eats he notices something is missing and, it’s his earring.
Akito and Koharu help him to search it but they still can’t find it. Determined to help him, Koharu asks others to find a way to make Kakeru more cheerful. Sakuya offers to do a fortune telling for her. The results is not that good, he says he can see a small gear. Koharu wants to know what the relation between the gear and Kakeru but Sakuya only says there is a stranger who is accompanied by a dog. He knew his objective, but is moved by different will. For the traveler with no number, the journey can become a discovery or an escape, the future can be changed depending on it.
Later on Koharu and Kakeru have a talk about how they are in a nice term but Koharu doesn’t feel it. She says Kakeru hasn’t smile since then and he needs to stop overdo it. He snaps at her and immediately says sorry.
The next morning the 3 girls are thinking of something. It seems they are thinking of their own partner. Suddenly Itsuki comes out of nowhere and offers to help them. He wants the girl to play a Amidakuji (something like a ladder lottery), and he will announce the result at night.
At night the 3 of them entered a dream world when they are sleeping. Mikoto as Cinderella, Nanami as Little Red Riding Hood, and Koharu as Snow White. And as usual Itsuki trolling them in his cat form. He needs them to find their most precious person to get out from the dream. Mikoto and Nanami have no clue about the fairy tale stories so Nanami explains it to them. Cinderella has mean stepsisters, and supposed to go to ball, and also she tells her about the glass shoe. Red Riding Hood needs to deliver something but becomes a target of wolf. But it seems both of them misunderstood Koharu’s stories. Mikoto searches the glass shoe and Nanami hunts a wolf.
Later on Koharu finds dwarf’s house and rests there. Finally she finds Kakeru outside, he is supposed to be a poisonous apple that she will eat. He feels dirty because he often lashes his angers on her. He says he is a fool and it’s better if he disappears. But Koharu stops and calms him down. He keeps saying he is like an apple, looks pretty inside but outside is poisonous/dangerous and he doesn’t deserve to stay near her. She hugs her telling him he is stupid, everyone has their own bad traits but everything about Kakeru is important for her. Then Kakeru kisses her and the dream ends.
Koharu who is wakes up from the dream goes outside and sees Ron is sleeping on the bench. She tries to wake him up and notices Kakeru’s earring in his hand. When she wants to take it Ron wakes up. He says the earring is dangerous for Kakeru and it’s better to discard it. Because he won’t give it to her, Koharu uses her power to take it out from him and runs away.
The next morning Kakeru says that he has a strange dream about her. Remembering the kiss both of them are blushing, later on Senri interrupts them. Saying it’s gross that they act like a newlywed. Then Kakeru bullies Senri with a smile on his face. ( ＇∇＇)ｳﾌﾌﾌﾌ
In the library Kakeru talks again about the dream and saying something that will Koharu accepts him just like in the dream? Koharu accepts him and they kiss, but they are interrupted by Sorata. After Sorata leaves, they continue to kiss again lol. It seems Koharu is in daze and falls, and it makes the earring drops from her pocket. Then he notices his earring on the floor, he doesn’t have a clue why the earring is in the library. He also sees a tarot card with ‘Fool’ written on it (btw Fool is numbered zero and the description is matched with what Sakuya has told before in his fortune telling). Remembering Ron’s word, Koharu asks Kakeru not to wear the earring. Kakeru agrees with her request because right now he already has Koharu.
Later on Nanami tells Koharu that they almost reach their destination and all of them will be separated. Nanami feels sad by it and says she will keep the memories that they spend together here as an important one. The next morning the boys go out to visit town, Koharu meets with Ron outside her room. Koharu wants to ask something about Kakeru, but he taunts her to use her power. She refuses and suddenly a robot appears. Ron says it’s a puppet, and it’s the perfect time to use her power. But Koharu refuses to use it and calls Kakeru. Since Koharu doesn’t want to show her fire Ron points the gun on her.
Kakeru notices some voice and he runs back to the ship. Akito tries to beat the puppet but he is beaten instead. When the puppet goes to Kakeru, Koharu comes in front of him. He tells her to run away, but Koharu uses her power to protect him.
After the incident, Koharu locks herself in her room. At night Sakuya tells Masamune that the future is already changed. Kakeru threatens Koharu to break the door if she won’t open it. Finally Koharo opens it and he enters her room. He says Sorata, Nanami and everyone else is worry about her. She remembers the past when people calls her a monster because of her power. She hates her own power because it can hurt others. Then Kakeru apologizes for not noticing it, he says her fire is not scary. Her power is not to hurt but to protect people, and others already knows it. That’s why she doesn’t need to worry. Then he hugs her, saying that from now one he will protect her.
The next morning, Nanami and Mikoto thank Koharu for defeating the puppet and protecting them. Koharu feels better after hearing it. Koharu feels sad because in 3 days they will go a separate way, but Kakeru says she is not alone anymore and he wants to see her smiling face. Later he confesses to her,
“I like you, my cute Koharu.”
But then they are interrupted again but this time by Masamune. Suddenly the ship is attacked again, he wants Koharu to go to Cafeteria. She finds Heishi there and he uses his telepathy to gather everyone else. Then Heishi notices that someone is fighting, Koharu who is worry runs to the rooftop.
Kakeru fights Ron, and when Koharu arrives she finds Kakeru is bleeding. Then a stranger appears, it seems he is the one who gave Koharu’s uniform and give her a name. Turns out the stranger is Kakeru’s dad, Shiro. He comes to fetch Koharu, and suddenly a guy named Azuma Natsuhiko attacks him. Kakeru who is bleeding is happy to see his father is still alive and finally unconscious. Shiro takes Kakeru, before chasing him Natsuhiko says to Masamune that he can’t give Koharu to Shiro or the world will be over. Later on Masamune says that Kakeru is their enemy.
Everyone come to the place that is called “The World (世界)”, Sorata is surprised since the place it’s actually the building that he has visited for the study tour (国会議事堂). Then Masamune calls ‘Aion’s name. She is actually the world itself, a system to help with the process of resetting the world. Aion informs them that they are currently in year 2080, but Heishi says it’s impossible because they are in year 1919. She then explains everything, the world begins from year 2000 is starting to get unbalanced and finally on the year 2060 people keep having a war. So the government makes a plan called ‘reset’. Basically they reset the world by erasing the civilization and returning it back to the years before. The first reset is done in year 2080, up until now the reset has been done 3 times and right now the real year is 8075. The power users are needed to perform a resetting task. Originally there are only 9 power users but right now there are 10. The barrier power is to protect life, fire to erase the civilization, water and plant to rebirth the earth, and another power to erase people memories.
But right now they can’t do a reset because Kakeru is not here. His power is needed to perform a reset. Koharu begs Aion to save Kakeru, Aion then reveals that Kakeru is brainwashed by his father. Turns out the earring is the device to brainwash him and Ron realizes it, that’s why he warns Koharu last time. Kakeru’s purpose is to bring Koharu to his father. Aion says Kakeru probally can’t be saved anymore but Heishi denies it. He says Kakeru’s feeling for Koharu is from himself. His other actions maybe an order from his father but his feeling for Koharu is real and honest one. He tells Koharu to believe on it.
Suddenly the place is attacked and Aion disappears. Heishi says 2 people enters the building, but they are not the enemy. They are actually Ron and Natsuhiko. Realizing their enemy is Shiro; Natsuhiko, Ron, Akito and Nanami go to find him. Akito invites Koharu because she is the only one who can stop Kakeru. They are fighting the army of puppets, and finally Kakeru appears. He uses his power to immobilize them. He catches Ron and shows no emotion at all, it seems he is brainwashed completely. When Kakeru tries to kill Ron, Nanami comes in front of him.
Seeing it Koharu realizes that Ron is important to Nanami, then she remembers Kakeru’s words. That Koharu’s fire doesn’t scared him, her fire is not to hurt but to protect. Determined to protect Kakeru, Koharu uses her power. Inside her head she can hear Aion’s voice, that her fire won’t hurt him. She hugs him and finally he regains his sense. He apologizes for attacking them and fails to protect her. Both of them confesses their love and finally kiss.
In the epilogue, Koharu and Kakeru are in the grass field. It is actually Koharu’s hometown, but there is no other person there. Kakeru teases her, it feels good because there are only the two of them in this wide place. When the wind blows Koharu suggests Kakeru to return to the house because he is still recovering from the brainwash thing. But Kakeru insists he is fine and pulling Koharu down, laying on the grass. He is very happy because Koharu is beside him. As he kisses her, he says ‘I love you’ to her. From now on whatever will happen in the future, he won’t let her go and will protect her. (Btw Shiro is dead because of his old age lol)
When Nanami stands in front of Ron, she is killed by Kakeru. He also manages to capture Koharu and become a perfect puppet (aka brainwashed completely) for his father.
First of all I just love all the guys in this game, and Kakeru is such a tease. Koharu is pretty dense for heroine but somehow I find she is very cute. I laugh so hard when she mistook Kakeru as a girl ( ＇∇＇)ｳﾌﾌﾌﾌ The ending is good but somehow it still have many things unexplained but I’ll just play others to unlock more mysteries. I know I need to finish my other games but I’m so excited about Norn9 and ends up playing it first xD
