■ Story

When he realized it, he was in the darkness, unaware of even which way is up or down.

How long had he been here? And how long will he remain here?

When his voice didn’t reach anyone and it seemed like even the consciousness he had left was starting to fade, a ray of light shined in the darkness.

He heard someone calling…

Driven by that voice, he desperately reached out to the light, only to see an unknown starry sky before him.

And in its arms a girl with red eyes and two horns pointing up to the heavens.

The girl, bleeding without an end in sight and hovering between life and death, asked him this.

“A black mask…? You’re… my….”

A rebellion, of a princess bound by blood and a man who lost his name has begun.
