I’ll fight for my justice… and kill yours if I must.

Long ago, this land was home to beasts the size of mountains that have now become petrified. Mana overflowed from their remains, drawing people who sought its power, and civilizations sprang up.

People came to revere these mana-producing creatures, which they named “Primordial Beasts.” They built their lives around them. Thus began the worship of the Primordial Beasts.

Time moved ever onward, to the present day…

War erupts between the Jerle Federation, an alliance of countries who worship the Primordial Beasts, and the Gildllan Empire, which has enjoyed explosive development thanks to advanced technology. The fires of war burn ever brighter.

Federation knights-in-training, Imperial soldiers, and adventurers who owe allegiance to neither side… 21 very different people weave the story of their bonds, and the paths they forge through a turbulent age. Will their varying outlooks lead them to hidden truths about the world? You’ll have to play to find out…


In this world, prosperity is built by the Mana produced by the mysterious giant life form Genju that transcends human knowledge. The Federation, which regards Genju as sacred and emphasizes coexistence with nature, depends on Genju for the development of civilization. Through this battle of conflicting ideas of justice, the thoughts of both enemies and friends are shown from various angles!

  • Jerle Federation – Since olden times, they have lived in harmony with nature and the Primordial Beasts.
  • Gildllan Empire – A technologically advanced nation whose growth is fueled by artificial extraction of mana from the Primordial Beasts.
  • Adventurer – Members of neither military, they investigate the mystery of the Primordial Beasts on their own.


With cell graphic-like visuals that coexist with profoundness and beauty, such as a map with a sense of depth and atmosphere, you can freely explore a vast and alluring location! The game sequence has been designed to ensure that battles and events proceed seamlessly and at a good pace. Basic Attack, Technique, and Secret Mystery can be activated by tapping and flicking. Each action and operation system has its own characteristics, expressing the characters’ individuality!
