■ World

“Pure Breed,” a gigantic creature with overwhelming power, whose invasion is a major threat.

By spending time with your friends at school and solving their problems in the Different World, the real world will see great change.

In the everyday that should be peaceful, a mysterious, gigantic creature suddenly appears and launches an attack on humans, including Hinako and the Reflectors.

—Pure Breed: Yesod: Both Pure Breed’s body and power are of non-standard scale. Even Reflectors are helpess if they’re hit with an attack.

Fragments: Changing Emotion into Power

Hinako and the Reflectors need to be strengthened to face against threats. Players can strengthen the Reflectors by equipping “Fragments,” which are the crystallization of emotions. Fragments have various effects, including increasing attack power and defense power.

Fragments can be found in the Different World, where you’ll solve problems. They’re an indispensable resource for Reflectors, as equipping them will display various effects.

■ System

Hinako is a Reflector who fights, but she is also a high school student who goes to school. From waking up early to going to sleep at night, you’ll spend your basic everyday following the same cycle.

In the morning, you’ll wake up at home and head to school. In heading to school, you may even meet up with other students.

At school, special events may be triggered while in class or during lunch. Rarely, these events may bring about questions from students, and your “Interaction Level,” which represents the closeness of your relationship, will change depending on the answers you choose.

After school, you can freely move about. This includes spending time with the students you want to befriend, creating items, going to the Different World to solve problems, and more. You can spend your time as you please.

When you’re done doing what you want after school, you’ll return home and go to sleep, and the day will come to an end.

Depending on the actions you perform within this daily cycle, the power of your bonds with your friends will significantly change.

FuriSupe! The App Popular Among High School Girls

“FuriSupe” (Editor’s Note: We’re guessing this is a shortened form of “Free Space”) is a smartphone application popular among high school girls, and is indispensable to your everyday life. In addition to seeing your friends’ profiles, you can deepen your interactions with them through the talk chat system, as well as enjoy mini-games.

■ Characters

Chihiro Inoue (voiced by Ayaka Suwa)

A kind-hearted curiosity.

  • Height: 152cm
  • Weight: 43kg
  • Likes: Flowers

Blue Reflection: Sword of the Girl Who Dances in Illusions

A curious girl. You won’t know what she’s thinking. She is judged by others for her troublesome behavior, such as decorating the classroom with stuffed toys, but actually does all those things out of consideration for others. She is a very nice, considerate girl, but her efforts often come to nothing, so people don’t realize it. She is a troublemaker without bad intentions, so to speak.

Yuri Saiki (voiced by Ayane Sakura)

A genius with an IQ of 300 able to foresee all.

  • Height: 159cm
  • Weight: 45kg
  • Likes: Thinking

Blue Reflection: Sword of the Girl Who Dances in Illusions

A girl with naturally high intelligence. She takes pride in her high IQ, but pretends to be an ordinary student, recognized in school merely as someone bright. She grew up putting intelligence ahead of emotions and is unable to express her emotions well, nor is she very good at reading the emotions of others.
