Story

In the popular MMORPG world 'Union' there existed a legendary party named Subaru.

This party, made up of a group of childhood friends and elementary schoolers, exceeded the limits of the game with their various senses.

However, due to an incident which resulted in a death, 'Union' ended its service and the group of childhood friends went separate ways.

Six years later, highschooler Haruto logged into the new 'Reunion' and reunited with a single girl.

Asahi—one of old 'Subaru' party members, and his childhood friend who should have died six years ago. Is she a digital ghost, or...?

Subaru's advance guard who was the always-positive center of the group of friends. After Asahi's death, he spent six years living an empty life in a daze.

Sense: Fighting Spirit
The ability to control the aura that flows within the body. This sense makes the beholder a skilled attacker with high attack and defense.

Asahi Kuga

Voice: Nichika Omori

Subaru's unbounded, cheerful female guardian. She perished in her real life six years ago during gameplay.

Sense: Mind Reading
A sense that allows the beholder to influence the hearts of others. Asahi's unique sense--”Profeata (the future sight)"--is the ultimate version of this sense.

Voice: Akari Kito

Subaru's advance guard who was once a tomboyish girl. She doted on Haruto, whose heart was broken after Asahi's death.

A sense that rules over the laws of the world. Apart from analysis and disassembly, when mastered, this sense gives the beholder the ability to teleport physical matter.

Clive Vivali

Voice: Takuma Terashima

Subaru's guardian. He's the only member logging in internationally among the group of childhood friends. He's a free spirit who's not easy to figure out.

Nozomi Kusaka

Voice: Yumiri Hanamori

Subaru's guardian who is very reserved. Six years after Asahi's death, she became a model for teen magazines.

A mysterious girl who often shows up where Haruto and his friends are. It appears that she knows something about Asahi's reappearance...?
