■ The Girls’ Hearts and Reflectors

The worries and problems of the students cannot only be solved in the real world. There is a “Different World,” a world of the unconsciousness of the human collective, where the main causes of these latent troubles are lurking. For Hinako and friends, they jump into this world as Reflectors in order to resolve these problems.

To resolve these problems, it is necessary to seek out crystallized emotions that are causing a problem in the Different World. In this Different World, which is the human mind itself, various trials await Hinako and friends.
