◆Game Summary:

1) Story Introduction

It is 1868, the third year of the Keio era and the twilight hours of the Tokugawa Shogunate.
One day, the heroine and her brother Chitose begin serving at Nisshin-kan School. The retainers near Tsuruga-jo Castle in Aizu Domain send their children to Nisshin-kan School to train from the age of ten. Their minds are refined and skills sharpened to serve their lord and land. Although some young men like Mineji, Matahachi, and Gisaburo attend Nisshin-kan School, others such as Kotaro and Narihira live elsewhere in the castle town. For some time the days pass and their friendships deepen. However, when war breaks out in Aizu Domain, Mineji and the others in the Byakko-tai are shipped off to the battlefield. Meanwhile, the heroine is faced with a pressing that may shape their fates and their lives.
