■ Story

Brave Neptunia

A self-proclaimed hero and her merry companions travel around the world.

2D games—planar games made up of pixels and illustrations. In one of many dimensions, there exists a Gamindustri built upon 2D games.

In this world ruled by an organization called “Silkworm,” which worships 2D games, people create 2D games and pay taxes in game casettes.

It is rumored that those who produce poor games and games that make use of new technologies are sent to the trial grounds, where their spirits are destroyed. In this Gameindustri, which damns that sort of future to hell, a girl who lost her memories awakens.

The girl, who knows not left from right, headed to the neighboring town under the order of Silkworm, but monsters blocked her way. She fought back with a cypress stick that had dropped and won a splendid victory.

It was then that she knew for certain. That she is a hero, the protagonist of this game named Neptune. The self-proclaimed hero Neptune will encounter various people and go on a journey with a mysterious book (Histoire).

■ Characters


Brave Neptunia

The overwhelming protagonist whose name is even in the title of the game.

However, when she regained consciousness, she had lost her memories and could only remember her name. She could not recall what kind of person she was at all.

Once a monster attacked, she was convinced that she is a “hero.” And with her inborn, unnecessarily high energy, she gathers up friends and sets off on a journey to discover the truth.


Brave Neptunia

When she regained consciousness, she had lost her memories and began looking for clues as to who she is. The only thing she could remember is her name.

After encountering Blanc, who had also lost her memories, she lives with her via the rewards they earned at the guild.

The considerable lack of clues to her memories often cause her to become irritated. However, it seems as though she feels refreshed after laying down.


Brave Neptunia

She lives with Noire, who also lost her memories, via the rewards they earned at the guild.

She is quick-witted, but when she does not know what to do, she has an intracranial meeting to figure out a solution.


Brave Neptunia

She was taken in by an innkeeper when she collapsed, and has since been living rent-free.
