「 Overcoming a limitless eternity, a certain girl awakens —— 」
Yuukyuu no Tierblade -Lost Chronicle- (悠久のティアブレイド・The Eternal Tierblade) is a ‘fantasy SF adventure’ first introduced by Otomate in last month’s B’s-LOG issue, released on September 8, 2016. This is Otomate’s first game to feature art from 2 different artists, Ike (ARMEN NOIR) and Kinami Yuuki (Glass Heart Princess, Trigger Kiss)!! The director is Nakamura Kazuki (Moujuutsukai to Ouji-sama, GHP, Trigger Kiss).
Set in the distant future, after the earth has been destroyed by the ‘Final War.’
The air has become polluted, and the lifespan of humans has decreased by more than half.
A young man living in the slums named Sud meets a mysterious man on the run, Atarva, and learns about a certain girl. (i have no idea how to romanise any of their names pls forgive me if they’re all wrong lol)
This girl’s name is ‘Eve.’ According to the story, Eve — who possesses a forbidden power within her — has lived 3000 years in a colossal shelter built by the Ancients, the ’Neo-sphere’, with an AI named ‘Cradle’. In order to restore the earth, Sud and Atarva both head towards Neo-sphere; however, immediately after they find Eve, they are attacked by an army.
Sud and the others are unable to do anything against the army’s huge humanoid robot weapons. (i.e. gundams??) However, as if reacting to the fact that Eve is in danger, a pure white robot — a ‘Tierblade’ — comes to their rescue……
The girl who lived for years in the underground shelter
Eve (イヴ Ivu)
‘It’s been such a long time since I’ve had guests…
I’m supposed to serve tea at a time like this, right?’
A girl from the ancient times who has spent 3000 years in the underground shelter, Neosphere, with only an AI. She has no memory of her life before she entered the shelter. Though she is gentle and has a my-pace personality, (god i hate this word there’s no good translation for it) she is much more lively than she looks, and enjoys being out and about.
The AI who protects the heroine
cv. Kakihara Tetsuya
‘Let go of her hand right now.
May I ask that you refrain from touching her if your hands have not been throughly inspected yet.’
The AI who follows Eve around. Despite its appearance, Cradle is actually in charge of managing all of Neo-sphere, and is a part of its interface. Cradle is quite particular about manners and etiquette, and always places the heroine as its first priority. However, there seems to be a system error within it, and it sometimes gets jittery during conversations.
(sorry but you can’t date the smol robot!!!! even tho its voiced by kakki wwww what a waste I WAS WRONG you can date the robot and its the best thing ever i am seriously considering this game just for the cute robot)
The strong-minded young man who lives on the ruined earth
Sud (シュド Shudo)
cv. Ishikawa Kaito
‘I’ll show you what the sky looks like. I promise.’
In order to help his allies who are suffering due to how polluted the air his, he sets off to reach the Neo-sphere. Having adapted himself to the destroyed earth, he is rather strong-minded. Despite this, he is actually easily attached to people, and as a result, the money that other people have yet to return to the store that he owns just keeps increasing. (this is literally me w/ my friends lmao they owe me so much)
Keyword: ‘volition’ that transcends time
The mysterious young man who possesses the memories of other people
Atarva (アタルヴァ Ataruva)
cv. Terashima Takuma
‘I want to know.
What…no, who was that journey for?’
A mysterious young man who escaped from a certain facility owned by the government. Taking heed the words of his late older brother, he is searching for Eve. He knows nothing of the world outside, and is even less athletic than Eve is. For some reason, he possesses ‘memories of a journey of more than 100 years that are not his own’, since birth (he’s so pretty im screaming)
Keyword: a borrowed ‘love’
The man who resurrected from a corpse
Yajur (ヤジュル Yajuru)
cv. Kondou Takashi
‘Was I in heaven or hell, you ask?
Hm, I don’t think I really remember……’
A man who is revived from a corpse that Eve and the rest discover. (lmao what????) As the restoration was not complete, his memories are hazy, but it seems that he used to be a member of the government. He often has to stop Sud and Atarva from arguing with each other. However, he is also quite a playboy, and often causes trouble with his advances on Eve.
Keyword: ‘crime’ and ‘punishment’
The cruel, cold young man possessing concealed insanity
Lowe (ロウ Rou)
cv. Matsuoka Yoshitsugu
‘Eve, who is that…that man!
Why is he sitting next to you as if I’ve given him permission to do so!!’
A special service member of the government army which is trying to capture Eve. Contrary to the skilful way in which he handles technology, he possesses a cruel and eccentric personality. He will use even his own subordinated as shields if they are not useful enough to him. Though he seems to know Eve, neither Eve nor Cradle seem to remember him.
Keyword: ‘pure love’
Mysterious humanoid robots: Tierblades (i.e. GUNDAMS)
The strong, beautiful white Tierblade who only fights for the heroine
A mysterious robot locked up in the tower situated in the center of Neo-sphere. It suddenly awakens when Eve is put in danger. Only those who possess the desire to ‘protect Eve’ can control it. (wtf why though thats hilarious) Furthermore, its design changes based on its user. (omg i cant take any of this seriously im so sorry wwwwww)
The sturdy, fast black Tierblade that rises from an isthmus
A black Tierblade controlled by Lowe. Though he is a member of the government army, it is unknown as to why he is in possession of an ancient robot, and its relation to the white Tierblade.
A gigantic underground shelter apparently built by the Ancients who lived centuries ago. It was built so that a million people could live in it, but for some reason, its only inhabitant at the moment is Eve. Through time, all its buildings have become covered in vines, and some areas have begun to fall apart.
Around 3000 years ago, the Ancients prided themselves on being the most technologically advanced people on earth, but were wiped out during the ‘Final War.’ Eve is thought to be the last survivor of the Ancients……
A organisation that rules the land that Shud and the others are living in. In control of a large army, it has been in war with other organisations for a long time. Only the elite are chosen to work for the government, and they are currently pursuing Atarva, who escaped from one of their facilities.
mmmmmmm I don’t really know what to think honestly( ´_ゝ｀)
the art is pretty but that’s all that really appeals to me????? I feel like this game probably won’t be very story-based compared to some of otomate’s other recently announced games, especially since otomate always releases a pretty balanced amount of otome games that focus mainly on romance and ones that focus more on the story (and its usually pretty obvious which game goes in which category lolol) NOT THAT THAT’S A BAD THING OFC the romance-focused games just aren’t right for me probably(^◇^;) man i just realised how weird that sounds like what kind of person plays otome games and doesn’t really care about the romance wwww (すみません。私です。)
I’m kinda more amused than intrigued by the whole mecha concept (maybe it’s bc of the way they describe them wwwwww) but apparently we can’t expect it to be mecha anime: the otome game since there’s a block of text at the bottom of its b’s log article literally just to reassure people that ‘even otome who don’t like mechas can enjoy this game!!!!!!!☆’ so I guess the tierblades probably won’t do all that much ww (which is unfortunate bc those are pretty cool robot designs😂😂)
for some reason I get the feeling that there’s going to be some time-travel plot twist in the game (like in norn9!!) because of how much emphasis they’re putting on the GIRL HAS BEEN LIVING FOR 3000 YEARS idea ahaha but maybe that’s just me(-∀-｡) I still wonder who the blonde girl is……..(but seeing as she’s with atarva in the art I guess it’s probably just eve after all……??)
