■ Story

The Caligula Effect 2

Set free from a past regret.

An academy juvenile RPG, where you try to find your way back to reality from an idealized world set free of any past regret.

■ Idols

Regret (voiced by Arisa Kori)

Creator of an ideal world.

The Caligula Effect 2

A mysterious virtual idol that suddenly appeared to the world. With her mystical voice, she invited humans troubled by their past regrets to the virtual world of “Redo,” where their ideals are realized.

χ (voiced by Mayu Mineda)

Another diva.

The Caligula Effect 2

Another virtual idol, who opposes Regret’s way of thinking and gives the main characters the power to destroy “Redo.” She also supports the Go-Home Club with the power of song.

■ The Go-Home Club

The second generation Go-Home Club, who dare to try and destroy the ideal world “Redo” and return to bitter reality.

The Caligula Effect 2

Their appearance in “Redo” is no more than an alternate version of themselves written over their past regrets. Their reality is nothing more than terrible. So why do they want to return to a harsh reality? That is a taboo that only the player can venture into.
