Introduction

We must go, to regain everything we lost…

Story

In the very far future, Humans have returned from the skies down to Earth again. In order to be able to reach the skies once more, people have created a history book called “Testament,” and follow its contents to reproduce events in History. However, the book stops at the year 1648, which means that fate will stop and the world will end at that date. People have mixed emotions as each nation goes on reproducing history while exploring ways to open their future. And so, the world has reached 1648, and therefore, the end of its fate. Some colossal changes are in store…

Characters

Tori Aoi
VA: Jun Fukuyama
Tori is the Head of Musashi Ariadust Academy's Supreme Federation and President of the student council. His athletics and grades are average, and he's both self and publicly recognized as an incompetent leader. However, because he doesn't know the meaning of depressed and has an incredibly cheerful attitude, he's very respected nonetheless. He knows a lot of strip jokes, and often plays the fool.
P-01s
VA: Minori Chihara
An employee at bakery/snack shop “Blue Thunder,” which is popular among the Musashi students. When she aimlessly appeared one year ago the owner took her in, but she has no memories prior to that. She is emotionless and unsociable, but she works very hard at Blue Thunder.
Masazumi Honda
VA: Miyuki Sawashiro
Vice President of the student council. She's very serious, skilled in debate, and aiming to become a politician. In the past she underwent gender reassignment surgery in order to succeed the family name, but certain circumstances forced her to stop the process part way. Her lack of breasts is a result of the surgery, but Tori treats her as a girl with tiny boobs.
Toussaint Neshinbara
VA: Mutsumi Tamura
Secretary for the student council. She has a dry personality and often faces the goofing off around her with a cold attitude, but she's also a romanticist who loves history and hopes to be a writer. When the nations come to war, she is in charge of drafting and commanding their strategies.
Shirojiro Bertoni
VA: Takehito Koyasu
Accountant for the student council. He is a merchant working at the center of Musashi's business association, and has a contract with the god of commerce. He's also what one would call a miser—always using whether or not he stands to profit as the basis of his decisions in everything.
