There is an “end” to this world—. We have been taught this from long ago.
Even the ocean that seems to go on forever has a definite “end” that you cannot go past.
“Because the world is flat.”
Many scholars believe this to be so, and the people believe it, too… But is that really the truth?
No, it probably isn’t. There are still many unknowns left in this world. What are the landscapes that the “Star Shards” depict?
That’s why I’m a strong believer. Indeed. The world has to be a much bigger place.

The protagonist of this story. A boy from Remnant Island who attends an academy in Saint-Elysee, a port town facing the Sciencia Sea.
His hobby is stargazing using a sextant and telescope left to him by his father. Why do ruins fall onto the island? What does the world that everyone believes is flat really look like? He has a strong interest and curiosity in unknowns such as these.
He is a logical thinker who forms his own conjectures—a stark contrast to his childhood friend Signa, who always goes with his gut.
