A young girl’s village and her father is taken away one day.
In place of that, she obtains a ‘power’, a sword that she can protect the ones important to her, which is a “demon sword”. With such a “power” that can shake the state of affairs of the country, she’s forced to live life on the battlefield. The country places her in the military school named “Nirvana”. There, country or race is not disclosed and young boys and girls who excel at fighting gather to compete. The heroine meets various people there and forms deep bonds with them and finds herself a place that she once lost. This is a story of such a girl and of “the demon sword that speaks.”
About the demon sword:
There’s a strange legend in Otesia about the demon sword. The person who wields it has so much power that it was once recorded in history that a country’s war was resolved just by a single person. But that person must have a strong resolve or the sword will take over his consciousness, turning him mad and giving him eventual death. Heroes who’ve gone mad and died because of the sword in history are many. The heroes are said not to hold its physical form, but to integrate with the sword, and that is exactly what it meant by being ‘posessed’, connecting to the legend of its deathly powers.
But no one actually knows much of the sword except for those rumours. In reality, it has not appeared for over a hundred years. And that demon sword, having fallen into the posession of a girl from the West, forces the West to finally start their moves…
“I will definitely find out why the demon sword chose me”
The village she was in was suddenly attacked and she lost the village and her father. While running away from the attacks she suddenly became the owner of the demon sword and was conscripted into Nirvana. Not being able to control the sword properly, she finds a place for herself in the school as her new friends support her.

“What do you mean what? If there’s no business you don’t have to talk to me”
Others admit that he is the strongest in Nirvana. Since entering the school he remains undefeated, even winning against the school’s instructors and has overwhelming strength. He is able to make decisions calmly in any situation and has the capability of leading others. Being bad in communication, he’s blunt but appears to have a gentle side too.

“If I get serious you’ll lose in a second!”
From the warring state of Daguroto. On his master’s command, he came to Nirvana to polish his skills. Daguroto has the custom of even girls learning the sword, so he has interacted with women stronger and more stubborn than himself. As such, he doesn’t really trust ‘normal’ girls. Saying he has no interest other than fightning, he puts up a fornt of being manly but actually has interest in girls.

Wilheim (Not playable)
CV: Takeuchi Junko
“Hello hello. I am Wilheim!! The strongest demon sword!!”
The person inside the sword that Ran got. He usually sleeps in the sword and doesn’t wake up. He loves battles and says extreme things when he’s awake. He ridicules the heroine for being his weakest wielder in history.
(Right, here’s your mascot and Orion-copy) (Should I mention I love shotas like this?! Why not playable!!!!!!!)
Has some pretty interesting seiyuus in this game, and ever since the Arthur game, there hasn’t been another sword-legend game, so I’m all up for it! I hope the heroine is not a douche or I will be sorely, sorely disappointed.
