■ Story

To resurrect the little sister I killed—.

Crystar

Crystar

Twin demons Mephis and Pheles suddenly appear before the despairing Rei to inform her. If Rei acts as a proxy for the devil and offers up Ideas, she may be able to resurrect Mirai. Rei enters the contract ready to give up everything to save Mirai.

Crystar

Rei, who will hunt spirits as a proxy for the devil, knows that they are souls of the dead aiming for resurrection, and begins to have feelings of guilt and inner conflict.

Although Rei manages to make friends like Kokoro, Sen, and 777 (Nanana), who are all fighting in limbo for various other reasons, Rei will suffer to guilt, conflict, and impatience in getting her sister resurrected.

Rei is breaking. Her bonds with her friends are distorting, and her tears are gradually drying up.

But because she cried, there must surely be a smile in her future…

■ System

Memoirs of the Dead

By collecting the “Memoirs of the Dead” from spirits, you can witness some of their memories. There are more than 90 Memoirs of the Dead, including enemy stories not told through the main scenario.
