posted on by Alex Mateo
The anime's story begins when the protagonist, a 14-year-old girl named Ai Ohto, hears a mysterious voice while walking around town late at night. It gives her an egg, and beckons to her: "If you wish to change the future, you need only choose now. Now, believe in yourself, and smash the egg."
The cast includes:
Tomori Kusunoki as Neiru Aonuma, a 14-year-old girl who has very distinct skin color and pigtails. She is very quiet and still at most times, and makes no initiative to get to know people.
Shuka Saitō as Rika Kawai, a 14-year-old girl who has very distinct bleached hair with a pink highlight streak. She doesn't hesitate to put say what's on her mind even for people she has just met.
