This is a narrative walkthrough of Galaxy Angel: Moonlit Lovers .

PrologueEdit

The prologue, narrated by Tact, briefly recaps the events of the first game, Galaxy Angel. Tact undergoes a "flashback" where he asked his chosen Angel out to the dance. This is a convenient plot device to allow the player to continue whichever route he/she played in the previous game, thus remaining faithful. The prologue ends after the flashback.

However, there is one more purpose to the select-an-Angel scene: if the player has installed the Chitose add-on pack (or is playing the PS2 version), and if the player has already cleared at least one other Angel's route, the player can select a mysterious empty room, and if he does so, instead of a flashback of asking a girl out, the prologue will end with Chitose briefly summarizing her past, and the game will then proceed on Chitose's route instead of one of the first game's Angels. Note that the Chitose path starts off assuming that Takuto ended the first game partnered with no Angel at all, and while Moonlit Lovers itself treats this in a benign enough manner, the only way for that outcome to happen if you were actually playing the first game is if Takuto, in chapter 10 of the first game, made such a bad choice that whichever Angel he asked to the dance lost all romantic interest in him.

Chapter 1Edit

"Actually, are you sure you weren't assigned to the Angel Troupe by mistake?"
— Lester Coolduras, to Chitose Karasuma —

BackgroundEdit

It has been six months since the events of the previous game.

This game assumes the player did not follow the Shiva sub-route in the previous game, since instead of Tact finding out Shiva's secret, Shiva had to publicly announce on TV that she was female before assuming the title of Empress. (It turns out that after a brief period of gossip, no-one cared; the Transbaal system was so busy rebuilding that it didn't matter whether they had a male or female leader.) Luft Weizen is now the Prime Minister in addition to being the military supreme commander, and exploration of the frontiers beyong the Empire's borders to search for Lost Technology to help rebuild the Transbaal system is underway. However, a mysterious raider fleet has been causing trouble by attacking civilian and military shipping in the Empire. The Moon Angel Troupe has been deployed to face this new threat.

Milfeulle's routeEdit

The Commander is Takuto (司令官はタクト?)

If the player is playing Milfeulle's route, the player is first briefly reminded that at the end of Milfeulle's route in the first game, Takuto retired from the military to be with Milfeulle, whose luck had stopped working.

Milfeulle's route in this game opens with Milfeulle waking up Takuto, who has slept until afternoon. She has brought him some food to eat, and apparently this is a common occurrence since they are now living as next-door neighbors (to make it more convenient for them to date, of course). With Takuto's retirement, Lester Coolduras has taken over his role as commander, causing Takuto to make a funny joke about Lester possibly abusing his position to make Almo serve him tea, although Milfeulle insists Lester wouldn't do that.

On television, the announcer notes that there has recently been construction of a spaceport on the planet Transbaal, and in the Lena System, ships have been mysteriously disappearing, suspected to be the work of "raider" fleets. Takuto is convinced that the Navy will take care of it since he is retired. But now he wonders what he'll have to do, since his pension will run out soon and he cannot keep living off his job as a chess teacher for children. Milfeulle, who now works at a bakery making cakes, says Takuto is good at his job and will make a good father someday. This prompts Takuto to tease that Milfeulle will make a good wife, embarrasing Milfeulle.

Then Milfeulle asks since they both have the day off tomorrow, will Takuto go on a date with her to the Galactic Land amusement park? She really wants to try the space ferris wheel sometime. Of course, Takuto agrees.

The next day, Takuto and Milfeulle head to the amusement park, but Milfeulle can't decide which ride to go on, either the Merry-Go-Round, the Roller Coaster, or the Haunted House. This leaves the player, playing as Takuto, to decide. He can actually pick two choices, but will only get to do at most two choices out of three before the plot moves on automatically, which will always leave one ride untried. All of the three choices will increase Milfeulle's affection for Takuto.

If Takuto picks the Merry-Go-Round, Milfeulle will insist on the pumpkin carriage, so it will feel like she and Takuto are a prince and princess going to a ball. Takuto reminds her that they aren't royalty, but Milfeulle shyly insists that Takuto is a prince to her.

If Takuto picks the Roller Coaster, he plans to scare Milfeulle with the ride so Milfeulle will cling to his arm and he can gently hold her. But Takuto had forgotten that Milfeulle is a former pilot, so she has fun on the ride instead, which has so many G's that little kids cannot handle the ride.

If Takuto picks the Haunted House, he plans to scare Milfeulle with the ghosts so Milfeulle will cling to his arm and he can gently hold her. But Milfeulle decides that being in a pitch-black place is fun, and when a robot ghost does appear "cursing" them, Milfeulle laughs at the robot's funny head spinning around in a circle.

Milfeulle feeding tact
After two rides, or if the player picked "Something Else" after the first ride (not recommended, since the player might as well increase Milfeulle's affection twice instead of once), Milfeulle spots the space ferris wheel and insists they try it.

The space ferris wheel takes half an hour, and Milfeulle serves Takuto lunch while aboard the space ferris wheel. However, the orbital station is attacked by a mysterious raider fleet, making it necessary for Takuto and Milfeulle to leave. They arrive at the escape shuttle and order the civilians inside, but the civilians protest that they can't leave because the shuttle crew isn't here to pilot it.

The player-as-Takuto gets three choices: he can either offer to fly the shuttle himself (which will impress Milfeulle), ask Milfeulle to fly the shuttle (which will also impress Milfeulle), or insist on waiting until perhaps the shuttle crew shows up (which will disappoint Milfeulle, causing Takuto to reluctantly offer to pilot the shuttle himself instead).

Either way, they pilot the escape shuttle to, as it turns out, the waiting Elle Ciel, complete with Lester as commander and two remaining Angel Troupe members: Forte Stollen and the newly-arrived Chitose Karasuma (Chitose having been newly assigned to the Angel Troupe a week before the events of this second game). Lester asks Takuto to resume his position as Commander, since the attackers are a raider fleet (meaning that the Lena System is not the only one being attacked). Chitose introduces herself in style by expertly sniping the reactor of an enemy ship, blowing it up instantly.

Takuto at this point can either: say he's pleased to meet Chitose (which will impress Chitose), say Chitose has a beautiful voice (and then jokingly ask Chitose out on a date just to screw around, disappointing Milfeulle for obvious reasons and disappointing Forte for bothering Milfeulle), or shout nonsense as a joke (which will disappoint Chitose and disappoint Forte for bothering Chitose).

In any case, Takuto explains the operation of the H.A.L.O. System to Chitose, and she in turn informs Takuto that the White Moon gathered data from the previous war and upgraded the command system, which she can explain along with her Sharp Shooter if the player wants her to.

The Angel Troupe then sorties against the fleet, which like the previous war is automated and therefore will not result in loss of lives if the player destroys the ships. However, since Milfeulle used up all of her luck saving the Elle Ciel at the end of the previous game, she must remain on the bridge with Takuto instead of piloting, so the player must escort the remaining civilian ships with only the Elle Ciel, Forte, and Chitose.

After the ensuing battle, Lester reveals that the reason the Elle Ciel is back is because mysterious raider fleets have been showing up attacking planets and orbital stations everywhere. They look like the remnants of Eonia's fleet, but no one can be sure. The reason that only Forte and Chitose returned with the Angel Troupe is because Ranpha, Mint, and Vanilla are all dealing with attacks in different systems. Also, Lester is actually relieved to give command of the Elle Ciel back to Takuto, since being the commander of the Angel Troupe caused him massive headaches. Forte, during her happy reunion with Takuto, reveals why, since Ranpha and Mint kept jokingly messing with Lester and Lester was so serious Forte was worried Lester was going to give himself an aneurysm.

Then, Takuto is introduced to Chitose in person, and Takuto immediately tries to get Chitose to not be so formal to everyone. It is revealed in Milfeulle's route that Chitose thinks very, very highly of Milfeulle, to the point that Milfeulle first sprang to mind when Chitose found out she was being assigned to the Angel Troupe since Milfeulle had such an active role in the last war. Takuto wonders why there is a sixth Angel Frame to begin with, and it turns out that after the war with the rebels, a part of the White Moon was opened and another Angel Frame, the Sharp Shooter, was discovered inside. Chitose was assigned as the pilot to the Sharp Shooter because she had by far the highest test scores in the Academy.

Since Milfeulle cannot pilot the Lucky Star as she could before, Forte tries to get Takuto to drop Milfeulle off with the civilians to protect her, but Takuto insists that Milfeulle is staying (to Milfeulle's immense relief) and that he will protect her anyway. Forte says she just wanted to be sure of Takuto's feelings.

Then, they are all summoned to the bridge. There, Chitose explains that the raider fleets have been attacking ships for fuel and goods, and there has been a minor attack on a military installation. However, they can try to meet up with the rest of the Angels later on in the Zadha system. Lester is impressed with Chitose, since Chitose behaves like a model soldier and can even quote regulations at him.

The meeting is dismissed, but there is a problem figuring out where Milfeulle should stay, since she can no longer pilot and is technically classed as a "civilian" now (so she cannot stay in the same block as military personnel). Eventually they decide on a spare room for Milfeulle, and arrange for her to be part of the cleaning crew so she can stay on board (since if Milfeulle has to go, Takuto will go with her, and Lester can't have that). Milfeulle is grateful anyway.

Almo is assigned to try to establish contact with the Zadha system, since there has been numerous communications interference with Zadha communications and they cannot ascertain the cause.

During the next Chrono Drive, Takuto visits the park and looks over all of Chitose's personal and military data, becoming more and more impressed with all of Chitose's high scores, top marks, and excelling abilities (her only problem is her lack of ability to "adapt," hence her surprise at the informality of life on board the Elle Ciel).

After the next "free time" segment, Milfeulle brings Takuto tea and cake, and then Kuromie summons Takuto to the Space Whale room, because the Space Whale has picked up a mysterious message from space it cannot understand. However, the voice is familiar, but not exactly the same as a person's, and it mentioned the name "EDEN" (Eden was the name of the civilization wiped out by the Chrono Quake 600 years ago, which gave birth to Lost Technology and allowed the rise of the Transbaal Empire). Takuto promises he'll try to see if a machine on the Elle Ciel can decipher the message.

Soon after that, the Elle Ciel actually does pick up the message, but it's a garbled mess, and only "EDEN" is intelligible. Almo promises to clean up the message as best she can, and Coco will try to trace the message back to its source.

Takuto contacts Luft to tell him of his findings, but the conversation is unexpectedly interfered with and cut off as the raider fleet appears again. This time, someone is hailing the Elle Ciel. It's Rezon Mayzon, whom the heroes battled as a minor villain last time during the Eonia war, with a new ally, Nephelia. He screams in fear upon realizing it's the Elle Ciel and the Angel Frames, but after Nephelia reassures him, he resumes trash-talking the heroes. (And Takuto insults him with a joke, like last time).

A brief attack causes Takuto to injure his hip (he was not sitting down properly in his chair), but the player defeats the fleet in the ensuing battle with Forte and Chitose. Furious, Rezon wants to call for reinforcements and defeat the Angels with brute force, but Nephelia persuades him to withdraw for now.

Milfeulle is remorseful that she could not sortie with Forte and Chitose, but they reassure her that since she cannot pilot the Lucky Star now there is nothing she could have done. Then, Takuto's injured hip acts up and hurts him worse than before, so Milfeulle takes him to the infirmary to be treated by Dr. Cera.

Milfeulle is driven to tears, believing it's her fault, because earlier she went to the Kafukafu Tree and prayed for the Angel Troupe's safety, but apparently did not include Takuto in the prayer. Takuto says it's okay, he'll just try harder. But Milfeulle insists that she wants to be useful to Takuto in some way, wishing she could fight. Takuto says in that case she could bring him some cake. But Milfeulle wants to do something more useful than a cake. The chapter ends with Milfeulle feeling melancholy, for reasons we will discover in Milfeulle's version of chapter 2.

Ranpha's routeEdit

Honey and Darling (ハニーとダーリン?)

If the player is playing Ranpha's route, the player is first reminded that Takuto and Ranpha fell in love in the first game, and then the route begins with Ranpha gently trying to wake Takuto up. When he refuses to get up, there is a comedy moment Ranpha screams "WAKE UP!!!" causing Takuto to wake up in shock. It turns out that Takuto had gone to Ranpha's room to hang out, but had fallen asleep when Ranpha went out to get them some snacks. We learn that Takuto and Ranpha are still aboard the Elle Ciel for purposes of "frontier exploration." Ranpha warns Takuto not to slack off, so Takuto asks Ranpha to try it herself and see if she likes it. He invites Ranpha to sit still beside him...but Ranpha can't take it anymore since it's boring for her to sit still, she's too full of energy. She wants Takuto to tell her a funny boyfriend story, so Takuto brings up the infamous "Lovesior" from the previous game's Ranpha ending. Ranpha chuckles at the memory, and then groans why did Lester have to get rid of all the pillows and curtains. (This, by the way, explains to the player why the bridge isn't decorated in a cutesy fashion as Ranpha did at the end of the first game.) Ranpha wants to secretly redecorate the bridge back when Lester is asleep, but Takuto wants to avoid further argument between Ranpha and Lester so he tells her about a dream he had about "the war" from the previous game.

The Angels are either exploring the frontiers of space to search for Lost Technology to help rebuild the Transbaal system, or in Forte's case assisting the 3rd Fleet investigate the disappearance of ships in the Lena system, believed to be the work of the "raider fleet." Ranpha looks forward to the Angel Troupe getting back from the frontier exploration because it's fun to hang out with all of them, so she makes Tact promise that they'll all hang out once everyone is reunited. Tact remarks that he and Ranpha have been cooped up in the Elle Ciel for six months anyway, so they need to kick back and relax. Besides, aren't they stopping at an orbital station to resupply soon? Ranpha wants to visit the city at that station and shows Tact a catalog of one of her favorite clothes shops. Then Ranpha suggests to Tact's shock that they buy matching clothes so they can look the same and everyone in the city can stare at them, and Ranpha suggests pink clothes for this purpose.

Ranpha catalogue

Here, the player has three choices. The top choice has Tact say that pink might be too much, which will disappoint Ranpha; the middle choice has Tact say that he's looking forward to it, which will impress Ranpha; and the bottom choice has Tact say that he likes their normal clothes, which won't change anything. Obviously, players hoping for a stronger Ranpha in battle or a deeper relationship with Ranpha should pick the middle choice, telling Ranpha that they're looking forward to it. Regardless, Ranpha eventually manages to find a matching set that can be custom-made, leaving the design to Ranpha. She orders the clothes hoping they'll come on time, and then tells Tact that she loves him.

Also note that as we learn in this scene, Ranpha has taken to calling Tact "Darling" all the time. Then Kuromie summons Takuto to the Space Whale room, because the Space Whale has picked up a mysterious message from space it cannot understand. However, the voice is familiar, but not exactly the same as a person's, and it mentioned the name "EDEN" (Eden was the name of the civilization wiped out by the Chrono Quake 600 years ago, which gave birth to Lost Technology and allowed the rise of the Transbaal Empire). Takuto promises he'll try to see if a machine on the Elle Ciel can decipher the message.

Soon after that, the Elle Ciel actually does pick up the message, but it's a garbled mess, and only "EDEN" is intelligible. Almo promises to clean up the message as best she can, and Coco will try to trace the message back to its source.

Takuto contacts Luft to tell him of his findings, but the conversation is unexpectedly interfered with and cut off as the raider fleet appears. The raider fleet attacks the Elle Ciel, but they are destroyed by a new Emblem Frame, the Sharp Shooter, piloted by a new Angel, Chitose Karasuma.

Surprisingly, Milfeulle Sakuraba and Mint Blancmanche also show up. Tact wonders what they're doing here, so Mint asks him to guess as a "quiz."

Here, the player has three choices: the top choice asks if they're there for Tact/the Elle Ciel (which plotwise is the correct answer and will impress Chitose), the middle choice asks if they chased the black fleet here (which is close and will impress Milfeulle and Mint), and the bottom choice asks Ranpha if she knows anything (she'll use her woman's intuition to guess that they're here for the Elle Ciel, and when she gets it right Tact praises her, so this choice will impress Ranpha).

In any case, Takuto explains the operation of the H.A.L.O. System to Chitose, and she in turn informs Takuto that the White Moon gathered data from the previous war and upgraded the command system, which she can explain along with her Sharp Shooter if the player wants her to.

The Angel Troupe then sorties against the fleet, which like the previous war is automated and therefore will not result in loss of lives if the player destroys the ships. However, unlike in the previous game, you do not start out with the full Angel Troupe: you only have Milfeulle, Ranpha, Mint, and Chitose to help you; Forte and Vanilla are not present at this time.

After the ensuing battle, Takuto is formally introduced to Chitose, and Takuto wonders why there is a sixth Angel Frame to begin with. It turns out that after the war with the rebels, a part of the White Moon was opened and another Angel Frame, the Sharp Shooter, was discovered inside. Chitose was assigned as the pilot to the Sharp Shooter because she had by far the highest test scores in the Academy. Chitose speaks very highly of Takuto, the Hero of the Empire. But when Takuto wants Chitose to call him by his first name, she is shocked beyond belief and is very embarrassed, since she was taught to call her superiors "Commander." Ranpha, although she warns Chitose that only Ranpha can call him Darling since they're dating, tells Chitose to relax.

The player then gets three choices: the top choice will have Takuto agree with Ranpha, which will impress Ranpha; the middle choice will have Takuto say he wants to get closer to Chitose, which will disappoint Chitose since the way Takuto says it comes off as perverted; and the bottom choice will have Takuto advise Chitose not to force herself, which will impress Chitose.

Regardless, Chitose manages to go from "Commander Meyers" to "Takuto-san."

Then, they are all summoned to the bridge. There, Chitose explains that the raider fleets have been attacking ships for fuel and goods, and there has been a minor attack on a military installation. However, they can try to meet up with the rest of the Angels later on in the Zadha system. Lester is impressed with Chitose, since Chitose behaves like a model soldier and can even quote regulations at him.

The meeting is dismissed, and Takuto formally introduces Chitose to Ranpha Franboise, whom he describes as the best with an Emblem Frame. Ranpha blushes at the compliment, and Takuto has Ranpha show Chitose to her new room, which turns out to be the room right next to Vanilla's. However, Chitose has to go get her baggage from the hangar first.

During the next Chrono Drive, Takuto visits the park and looks over all of Chitose's personal and military data, becoming more and more impressed with all of Chitose's high scores, top marks, and excelling abilities (her only problem is her lack of ability to "adapt," hence her surprise at the informality of life on board the Elle Ciel).

Then, it turns out that while Ranpha and Chitose got Chitose's baggage, her room isn't ready yet so there'd be nowhere to put it. So Ranpha decides to take Chitose on a tour of the Elle Ciel first. When Chitose's room is finally ready, Ranpha notices there is virtually no furniture inside: no desk, no bed, etc. Also, the doors are made of paper; what if there were drafts? This, incidentally, sets the stage for a misunderstanding later on. Anyway, Ranpha takes Takuto aside and asks him to help Chitose in any way he can, since Chitose must be in trouble. Chitose then informs Takuto that there isn't any furniture because on her planet, they don't need any furniture (because Chitose's home planet is based on an idealized version of historical Japan). And the paper doors are shōji, which let light into the room even when the doors are closed.

Later, in the cafeteria, Chitose tries to order a potato salad, a very meager meal (this, incidentally, is also part of what sets the stage for a misunderstanding later). Ranpha feels sorry for Chitose, knowing how it feels to not be able to eat all you want, so she offers to treat Chitose to all sorts of spicy meals. Milfeulle insists that Chitose can't eat all the spicy stuff Ranpha likes, so Milfeulle suggests the daily special, the vegetable gratin and herb chicken. Mint insists that people shouldn't force Chitose to pick, and then the player gets a choice.

The top choice has Takuto suggest that Chitose give spicy foods a try (which impresses Ranpha), the middle choice has Takuto suggest that Chitose try the daily special of vegetable gratin and herb chicken (which impresses Milfeulle), and the bottom choice has Takuto suggest that Chitose order whatever she wants (which impresses both Chitose and Mint).

Regardless of the choice, Takuto shares the mysterious space message with the other Angels, only for Chitose to reveal that she is somewhat capable of translating electronically-encrypted messages.

After the ensuing "free time" segment, Takuto and Chitose discuss how Chitose is adapting in the park, and Takuto falls asleep and has to be woken up by Ranpha.

Then, when the Elle Ciel finally docks at the orbital station, Takuto and Ranpha's matching clothes finally arrive, but since Takuto doesn't like the clothes he manages to talk Ranpha out of both of them having to wear them. They go on a date and see a movie in the city, and the movie was a romance that ended with the heroine asking the hero to pursue the financially poorer girl instead. For some reason not revealed until later on, this really bothers Ranpha, so Takuto asks if Ranpha's okay despite Ranpha insisting everything is fine, causing Ranpha to make a quiet remark about how Takuto is always such a nice guy. This is delivered in a wistful tone, again we won't discover the reason for this until later on.

Once everyone returns from the city, Milfeulle and Mint ask if there's anything wrong with Ranpha, but before Takuto can answer, they are interrupted as the raider fleet appears again. This time, someone is hailing the Elle Ciel. It's Rezon Mayzon, whom the heroes battled as a minor villain last time during the Eonia war, with a new ally, Nephelia. He screams in fear upon realizing it's the Elle Ciel and the Angel Frames, but after Nephelia reassures him, he resumes trash-talking the heroes. (And Takuto insults him with a joke, like last time).

The Angels defeat the automated fleet in the ensuing battle; a furious Rezon wants to call for reinforcements and defeat the Angels with brute force, but Nephelia persuades him to withdraw for now.

During the battle, however, Ranpha is not even remotely performing her best. And afterwards, she doesn't report to the bridge for debriefing, either. As Lester is wondering about Ranpha's unusually poor performance, Ranpha suddenly communicates to Takuto that she wants to talk to him alone in the warehouse. So when Takuto comes to check on her, he scolds her for her performance since he was worried about her and it might cause a problem for the commander's job, and Ranpha says she understands... everything. And then she breaks up with Takuto!

We'll find out why when Ranpha's version of chapter 2 begins.

Mint's routeEdit

Strange Mint (おかしなミント?)

The route begins with Mint waking Takuto up, since they're both out exploring the frontier together. Apparently Takuto had drool all over his face, something that Ranpha and Forte would have drawn on if they were here, which embarrasses Takuto (although Mint quickly reassures him that she found it cute). Mint says Takuto looked so happy, she wonders what he was dreaming about. Takuto responds that he was dreaming about the time he and the Angels were all together.

The Angels are either exploring the frontiers of space to search for Lost Technology to help rebuild the Transbaal system, or in Forte's case assisting the 3rd Fleet investigate the disappearance of ships in the Lena system, believed to be the work of the "raider fleet."

Then, Takuto remembers that Mint wanted to see him about something. It turns out Mint is looking through a catalog so she can buy new curtains and cushions, and she wants Takuto's opinion on whether or not she should choose "floral pink" as a color. Takuto privately thinks to himself that floral pink is pretty girly, even for Mint. Mint, however, reads his mind and asks if he really thinks so, it's just that she's rather fond of floral pink. Takuto says it's fine, and also asks Mint to please take it easy on the mind-reading. Mint asks whyever for, they shouldn't need to keep secrets from each other. Takuto ruefully chuckles that he can't hide anything from Mint, and then asks why floral pink; doesn't Mint love blue enough that most of her room is blue? Mint says yes, but she can't make everything blue, that would be boring. Floral pink curtains and cushions would help accentuate the rest of the blue room. Mint wants to buy these floral pink curtains and cushions when she gets back to Transbaal and can go shopping. Takuto asks if he can come with her, which excites Mint, who then wants an end table, and a new sofa cover, and...Takuto interrupts to ask if he's going to be carrying all of this, and Mint responds no, she'll just be happy Takuto is there with her. Takuto teasingly asks if he detects affection in there, and Mint says some things do not need to be voiced allowed. Does Takuto understand?

At this point, the player has three choices. Takuto can say of course, no, or you're impossible. No will lower Mint's opinion of him, but answering either of course or you're impossible (the latter being delivered in a teasing laugh) will impress Mint.

In any case, after some lovey-dovey banter, Mint says she looks forward to Takuto carrying...uh, she means shopping with her.

Kuromie summons Takuto to the Space Whale room, because the Space Whale has picked up a mysterious message from space it cannot understand. However, the voice is familiar, but not exactly the same as a person's, and it mentioned the name "EDEN" (Eden was the name of the civilization wiped out by the Chrono Quake 600 years ago, which gave birth to Lost Technology and allowed the rise of the Transbaal Empire). Takuto promises he'll try to see if a machine on the Elle Ciel can decipher the message.

Soon after that, the Elle Ciel actually does pick up the message, but it's a garbled mess, and only "EDEN" is intelligible. Almo promises to clean up the message as best she can, and Coco will try to trace the message back to its source.

Takuto contacts Luft to tell him of his findings, but the conversation is unexpectedly interfered with and cut off as the raider fleet appears. The newly-arrived Chitose Karasuma (Chitose having been newly assigned to the Angel Troupe a week before the events of this second game) introduces herself in style by expertly sniping the reactor of an enemy ship, blowing it up instantly, and as it turns out, Vanilla H has come back along with Chitose.

Here, the player has three choices: the top choice asks if they're there for Tact/the Elle Ciel (which plotwise is the correct answer and will impress Chitose), the middle choice asks if they chased the black fleet here (which is close and will impress Vanilla), and the bottom choice asks Mint if she knows anything (she'll get it right by logically analyzing the situation: Vanilla and Chitose are taking action against the fleet talked about earlier, but they're doing so far away from their assigned position so they must have just come across the fleet by chance, having business with the Elle Ciel. Takuto will praise Mint for her logical analysis, which will impress Mint).

In any case, Takuto explains the operation of the H.A.L.O. System to Chitose, and she in turn informs Takuto that the White Moon gathered data from the previous war and upgraded the command system, which she can explain along with her Sharp Shooter if the player wants her to.

The Angel Troupe then sorties against the fleet, which like the previous war is automated and therefore will not result in loss of lives if the player destroys the ships. However, unlike in the previous game, you do not start out with the full Angel Troupe: you only have Mint, Vanilla, and Chitose to help you; Milfeulle, Ranpha, and Forte are not present at this time.

After the ensuing battle, Takuto is formally introduced to Chitose, and Takuto wonders why there is a sixth Angel Frame to begin with. It turns out that after the war with the rebels, a part of the White Moon was opened and another Angel Frame, the Sharp Shooter, was discovered inside. Chitose was assigned as the pilot to the Sharp Shooter because she had by far the highest test scores in the Academy. Chitose speaks very highly of Takuto, the Hero of the Empire. But when Takuto wants Chitose to call him by his first name, she is shocked beyond belief and is very embarrassed, since she was taught to call her superiors "Commander." Mint correctly reads Chitose's feelings, which calms her down, and Mint manages to talk Chitose through at least calling him "Takuto-san."

Then, they are all summoned to the bridge. There, Chitose explains that the raider fleets have been attacking ships for fuel and goods, and there has been a minor attack on a military installation. However, they can try to meet up with the rest of the Angels later on in the Zadha system. Lester is impressed with Chitose, since Chitose behaves like a model soldier and can even quote regulations at him.

The meeting is dismissed, and Takuto formally introduces Chitose to Mint. Chitose is shocked, twice, by Mint's capacity for mind-reading, and then Mint shows Chitose to her new room, which is the empty room right next to Vanilla's.

During the next Chrono Drive, Takuto visits the park and looks over all of Chitose's personal and military data, becoming more and more impressed with all of Chitose's high scores, top marks, and excelling abilities (her only problem is her lack of ability to "adapt," hence her surprise at the informality of life on board the Elle Ciel).

Mint shows up and is impressed that Takuto isn't worried about the situation. Mint says that when she's with Takuto, she feels braver. Takuto thinks that he can't take credit, Mint never gets upset about things like this. But Mint reads Takuto's mind and takes his thought the wrong way, she thinks that Takuto thinks she lacks feminine delicateness. Takuto hastily changes the subject to Chitose, and they end up discussing all her good traits. Takuto showers Chitose with compliments and says she's unusually talented for the Angel Troupe, although Mint teasingly threatens to tell Ranpha and Forte that Takuto said that.

During a tea party thrown in honor of welcoming Chitose to the Elle Ciel, Takuto shares the mysterious space message with the other Angels, only for Chitose to reveal that she is somewhat capable of translating electronically-encrypted messages.

Afterwards, Creta calls Takuto on the bridge wondering why the pilot of the Sharp Shooter isn't answering her calls. Takuto investigates by going straight into Chitose's room. Unfortunately, Chitose is half-asleep and dreaming about her father. She is half-asleep enough that she mistakes Takuto for him (and it should be noted that, were the player to play Chitose's route and see the flashback of her father that takes place near the end of that route, there is a superficial similarity between Takuto and her father), and Chitose hugs Takuto in her sleep. Mint comes along then, and gets mad but hides it by smiling and talking politely about it, saying she's not mad, and then she runs off (colliding with a wall in the process), with Takuto chasing her.

Takuto finally corners Mint in the lounge and explains what happened. Mint doesn't sound convinced but aloud she says it's fine, she read Takuto's mind and understands that Takuto couldn't stop Chitose. However, then Mint makes an excuse and leaves, so Takuto thinks that clearly Mint is still mad about something or other or she wouldn't still be avoiding him.

Then, Chitose arrives at the lounge and profusely apologizes her behavior, asking for discipline. Takuto, however, lets Chitose off the hook. Chitose says that when she tried to apologize to Mint, Mint just said "I do not mind" and smiled, but Takuto points out that the problem is Mint's mood, a simple apology won't fix things. Mint hides her feelings deep inside; it's not safe to assume she's not mad just because she says that she's not.

Mint mistakes
Takuto spends the next "free time" segment looking for Mint. After the "free time" segment, Takuto and Chitose have a conversation about some papers Chitose is reviewing, but when Mint sees them she runs off again. Takuto is interrupted from solving the problem as the raider fleet appears again.

This time, someone is hailing the Elle Ciel. It's Rezon Mayzon, whom the heroes battled as a minor villain last time during the Eonia war, with a new ally, Nephelia. He screams in fear upon realizing it's the Elle Ciel and the Angel Frames, but after Nephelia reassures him, he resumes trash-talking the heroes. (And Takuto insults him with a joke, like last time). After the Angel Troupe beats him, a furious Rezon wants to call for reinforcements and defeat the Angels with brute force, but Nephelia persuades him to withdraw for now.

Before the battle, however, Mint fails to notice enemies sneaking up on her despite the fact that we learn, after the battle, that Mint's radar was functioning perfectly, so Creta thinks that the problem is Mint's mood negatively impacting the HALO system. Mint insists that she's fine, and then tries to dispell their doubts by asking Vanilla to perform a checkup on her in the infirmary. Mint insists that Takuto not come with her after seeing him and Chitose talking again.

Takuto wonders how he's going to fix whatever the problem is, but then the Elle Ciel docks in at the shopping center, and Takuto remembers that it's time to take Mint on a date!

Forte's routeEdit

Something One Raises (育てるもの?)

The route begins with Forte waking Takuto up in his room, because he failed to turn up at the Elle Ciel's bridge for the shift change on the watch. She chastises him for slacking off just because their frontier survey is almost over, and he apologizes for bothering her. Then he admits that when he saw her face, he thought he was still dreaming for a moment - about Forte and the Angel Troupe, as it turns out.

The Angels are either exploring the frontiers of space to search for Lost Technology to help rebuild the Transbaal system, or in Ranpha's case assisting the 3rd Fleet investigate the disappearance of ships in the Lena system, believed to be the work of the "raider fleet." Takuto wants to contact Admiral Luft for information, prompting Forte to tease him for doing something that will give him more work to do. That said, they both look forward to reuniting with the other Angels and having a party.

Forte pottedplant

The conversation turns to a pair of flowers Takuto is growing in a pot in his cabin. Forte, who is the one who ends up caring for them most of the time, says that if she left it to him, he'd just drown them. He says he thought it'd help them grow faster, to which she responds that it'll make them rot. "You can't do everything at once," she points out. He wonders when the already-large flower buds are going to bloom, and she says it'll bloom when the time comes. (This conversation foreshadows future events on the route.)

Forte expresses a desire to drive Takuto even harder, to bring him up to the same level as her. Here, the player has three possible responses: that it'll be hard unless he tries (which pleases Forte, as he acknowledges his faults), a laidback "no problem" (which annoys her for being prideful in spite of his low standards), or that he expects her to try too (which pleases Forte, who is amused that he thinks he can compete with her).

After a while, the conversation is put on hold when Kuromie summons Takuto to the Space Whale room, because the Space Whale has picked up a mysterious message from space it cannot understand. However, the voice is familiar, but not exactly the same as a person's, and it mentioned the name "EDEN" (Eden was the name of the civilization wiped out by the Chrono Quake 600 years ago, which gave birth to Lost Technology and allowed the rise of the Transbaal Empire). Takuto promises he'll try to see if a machine on the Elle Ciel can decipher the message.

Soon after that, the Elle Ciel actually does pick up the message, but it's a garbled mess, and only "EDEN" is intelligible. Almo promises to clean up the message as best she can, and Coco will try to trace the message back to its source.

Takuto contacts Luft to tell him of his findings, but the conversation is unexpectedly interfered with and cut off as the raider fleet appears. An enemy ship attacks the Elle Ciel, but is destroyed by a long-distance shot from an unidentified ally. It turns out to be a new Emblem Frame, the Sharp Shooter, piloted by a new Angel, Chitose Karasuma. She is accompanied by a cruiser under Lester's command.

Forte asks Takuto what he makes of this, and the player is given three options. He can say that they're here for him (which is the correct answer, and will impress Chitose), that they followed the enemy fleet here (which is a good guess, and will impress Forte) or ask Forte for her answer (which annoys her, as she expects him to make a bigger effort as the commander, after which she deduces the answer from the facts of the Angel Troupe's deployment).

In any case, Takuto explains the operation of the H.A.L.O. System to Chitose, and she in turn informs Takuto that the White Moon gathered data from the previous war and upgraded the command system, which she can explain along with her Sharp Shooter if the player wants her to.

The Angel Troupe then sorties against the fleet, which like the previous war is automated and therefore will not result in loss of lives if the player destroys the ships. However, unlike in the previous game, you do not start out with the full Angel Troupe: you only have Forte and Chitose to help you; Milfeulle, Ranpha, Mint and Vanilla are not present at this time. Lester's cruiser is also present, but is too slow to participate in the battle.

After the ensuing battle, Takuto is formally introduced to Chitose, and Takuto wonders why there is a sixth Angel Frame to begin with. It turns out that after the war with the rebels, a part of the White Moon was opened and another Angel Frame, the Sharp Shooter, was discovered inside. Chitose was assigned as the pilot to the Sharp Shooter because she had by far the highest test scores in the Academy. Chitose speaks very highly of Takuto, the Hero of the Empire. But when Takuto wants Chitose to call him by his first name, she is shocked beyond belief and is very embarrassed, since she was taught to call her superiors "Commander." Forte tells Chitose to calm down, noting that while military discipline is all well and good, it's also important to be flexible. She eventually manages to go from "Commander Meyers" to "Takuto-san."

Then, they are all summoned to the bridge. There, Chitose explains that the raider fleets have been attacking ships for fuel and goods, and there has been a minor attack on a military installation. However, they can try to meet up with the rest of the Angels later on in the Zadha system. Lester is impressed with Chitose, since Chitose behaves like a model soldier and can even quote regulations at him.

Lester takes over as the Elle Ciel's executive officer, with Forte going back to focusing on her duties as a pilot. Almo is assigned to try to establish contact with the Zadha system, since there has been numerous communications interference with Zadha communications and they cannot ascertain the cause.

During the next Chrono Drive, Takuto visits the park and looks over all of Chitose's personal and military data, becoming more and more impressed with all of Chitose's high scores, top marks, and excelling abilities (her only problem is her lack of ability to "adapt," hence her surprise at the informality of life on board the Elle Ciel).

Then Forte comes to the park to get Takuto, and takes him back to his room where Chitose is waiting. It turns out Chitose believes she can decrypt the message the Elle Ciel picked up, and Forte gives her some advice. Then Chitose asks Forte to help train her, and Forte agrees.

Chitose leaves the room, leaving Forte with Takuto. Forte comments that although she had trained Milfeulle and Ranpha previously, Chitose was the first to ask for it personally. Takuto praises Chitose's diligence, and expresses an interest in watching Forte train her.

A free time segment follows, giving Takuto several opportunities to watch Chitose's training. Afterwards, he finds Forte instructing Chitose in the firing range, lending the younger girl one of her handguns. Chitose also comments on Forte's perfume, Shanad #5.

Having observed Chitose's skill with single targets, Forte challenges her with a three-target scenario, but four targets actually appear, and Chitose only shoots the expected three. This is actually an accidental error on Forte's part, but she nevertheless uses it to make a point on facing unexpected scenarios.

The Elle Ciel Drives Out, only to encounter a transport vessel sending out a distress signal while being pursued by automated ships. The Elle Ciel establishes an audio-only communication with the civilian ship, who repeatedly pleads for help. Forte and Chitose successfully fight off the pursuers and rescue the ship, but Forte becomes suspicious at the captain's continued panicky behavior and the fact that the ship claims to have flown from Zadha, where the raider fleet is active.

Forte challenges the freighter captain with a complicated arithmetic question, to which he instantly gives the correct answer. This confirms her suspicions, and Takuto orders the Elle Ciel to take defensive measures as the "civilian" opens fire. Forte orders Chitose to snipe out the ship's systems, but she panics, forcing Forte to disable it herself. Takuto then gives orders for an engineering team to board and inspect the ship.

After the battle, Chitose expresses deep regret at her failure and pleads with Forte to teach her more. Forte offers her "special training," to which Chitose assents immediately, but Forte tells her they'll begin tomorrow and to get some rest first. Chitose then leaves, and Forte goes to resume the discussion with Takuto in his cabin.

There, Forte expresses her misgivings about Chitose. While her basic skills are exemplary, she acts in an excessively "textbook" manner, and showed a failure to properly read and adapt to a real situation. However, Forte cannot teach Chitose to solve this problem, but must wait for her to learn on her own. "Just like that flower there, I'll wait patiently for her to bloom," she says.

Vanilla's routeEdit

Older Brother and Younger Sister? (兄と妹??)

Vanilla wakes Takuto up from his nap in the park, expressing concern that he might get sick, and he apologizes for bothering her. Then he admits that when he saw her face, he thought he was still dreaming for a moment - about her and the Angel Troupe, as it turns out.

The other Angels are assisting the 3rd Fleet investigate the disappearance of ships in the Lena system, believed to be the work of the "raider fleet." Takuto wants to contact Admiral Luft for information, and he and Vanilla both look forward to seeing the other Angels again.

While looking for Mugimugi, one of the space rabbits from the Whale Room, they find a field of white clovers. Takuto makes a garland from the flowers and places it on Vanilla's head, commenting that she looks like a bride. He wants to make a bouquet for her as well, but she politely declines.

The player is then given a number of conversation options: Takuto can wonder what kind of bride Vanilla will be, say he wants to see her in a wedding dress (both of which will increase her affection), or say that she's still too young (which will disappoint her).

Then Kuromie summons Takuto to the Space Whale room, because the Space Whale has picked up a mysterious message from space it cannot understand. However, the voice is familiar, but not exactly the same as a person's, and it mentioned the name "EDEN" (Eden was the name of the civilization wiped out by the Chrono Quake 600 years ago, which gave birth to Lost Technology and allowed the rise of the Transbaal Empire). Takuto promises he'll try to see if a machine on the Elle Ciel can decipher the message.

Takuto contacts Luft to tell him of his findings, but the conversation is unexpectedly interfered with and cut off as the raider fleet appears. An enemy ship attacks the Elle Ciel, but is destroyed by a long-distance shot from an unidentified ally. It turns out to be a new Angel, Chitose Karasuma, piloting the new Emblem Frame Sharp Shooter and accompanied Ranpha Franboise.

Tact wonders what they're doing here, and the player has three choices. The top choice asks if they're there for Tact/the Elle Ciel (which is the correct answer and will impress Chitose), the middle choice asks if they chased the black fleet here (which is close and will impress Ranpha), and the bottom choice asks Vanilla if she has an idea (who deduces the answer from the facts of the Angel Troupe's deployment, after which Takuto praises her, making her happy).

In any case, Takuto explains the operation of the H.A.L.O. System to Chitose, and she in turn informs Takuto that the White Moon gathered data from the previous war and upgraded the command system, which she can explain along with her Sharp Shooter if the player wants her to.

The Angel Troupe then sorties against the fleet, which like the previous war is automated and therefore will not result in loss of lives if the player destroys the ships. However, unlike in the previous game, you do not start out with the full Angel Troupe: you only have Vanilla, Ranpha and Chitose to help you; Milfeulle, Mint and Forte are not present at this time.

After the ensuing battle, Takuto is formally introduced to Chitose, and Takuto wonders why there is a sixth Angel Frame to begin with. It turns out that after the war with the rebels, a part of the White Moon was opened and another Angel Frame, the Sharp Shooter, was discovered inside. Chitose was assigned as the pilot to the Sharp Shooter because she had by far the highest test scores in the Academy. Chitose speaks very highly of Takuto, the Hero of the Empire. But when Takuto wants Chitose to call him by his first name, she is shocked beyond belief and is very embarrassed, since she was taught to call her superiors "Commander."

Vanilla says that statistics show that compatibility improves when people talk to each other informally, and Takuto has three dialogue options. He can agree with Vanilla, which will please her and Ranpha. He can say he wants to get closer to Chitose, which will upset Chitose since the way Takuto says it comes off as perverted, as well as Ranpha and Vanilla for harassing Chitose. Or he can say "statistics don't lie," which annoys Ranpha for his pretentiousness but impresses Chitose.

Regardless, Vanilla and Ranpha coach Chitose into going from "Commander Meyers" to "Takuto-san."

Then, they are all summoned to the bridge. There, Chitose explains that the raider fleets have been attacking ships for fuel and goods, and there has been a minor attack on a military installation. However, they can try to meet up with the rest of the Angels later on in the Zadha system. Lester is impressed with Chitose, since Chitose behaves like a model soldier and can even quote regulations at him.

During the next Chrono Drive, Takuto visits the park and looks over all of Chitose's personal and military data, becoming more and more impressed with all of Chitose's high scores, top marks, and excelling abilities (her only problem is her lack of ability to "adapt," hence her surprise at the informality of life on board the Elle Ciel).

Takuto then tries to take a nap in the park, but the sprinklers malfunction and rain on him. He runs soaking wet to the elevator hall, where he meets Ranpha and Chitose, but Vanilla isn't with them. It turns out she went to get a towel for him when the sprinkler issue was announced, predicting that he would be napping in the park. This action impresses both Chitose and Ranpha.

Then Takuto takes the girls to the cafeteria, where he further impresses Ranpha and Chitose by knowing what exactly to get for Vanilla and himself. Chitose (and Ranpha) say that they act like siblings, which for some reason causes Vanilla to be distracted in thought.

Ranpha orders the Ranpha Special, and tries to get Chitose to have some too. Vanilla warns her to be careful, and Takuto can say one of three things: recommend that Chitose go for it (which pleases Ranpha), tell Chitose to stop while she can (which pleases Vanilla), or that she should decide for herself (which impresses Chitose).

The conversation then turns to the message picked up by the Elle Ciel, and Chitose volunteers to help decipher it, to which Takuto agrees. As they finish their meals, Vanilla reports on each of the others' calorie intakes for the meal, leading Chitose to praise her as almost being like a little sister. For some reason, Vanilla feels unwell immediately after, and Takuto and Ranpha tell her to get some rest.

The girls leave, and Takuto says to himself that Vanilla will be fine with Dr. Kela watching over her. However, he is accosted by a member of the crew, the self-proclaimed captain of Vanilla's bodyguards (actually her fanclub). The crewman notes that Vanilla has been acting worried lately, and expresses concern for her well-being. He then runs off to stalk guard Vanilla some more.

Vanilla fever
After a free time segment, during which Takuto observes Vanilla behaving inattentively in his presence, he decides to check up on her in her room. He expresses his concerns, and she speaks of her heart rate spiking in his presence, a symptom for which she can find no explanation in her medical texts. Noticing that her face is flushed, Takuto checks Vanilla's forehead for signs of a fever. When her pulse continues to rise, he wants to take her to the infirmary, but she refuses, electing instead to treat herself with her nanomachines - with no effect. Just then, the raider fleet attacks again, and Takuto and Vanilla are both forced to return to their respective posts.

The enemy fleet is led by Rezon Mayzon, whom the heroes battled as a minor villain last time during the Eonia war, with a new ally, Nephelia. He screams in fear upon realizing it's the Elle Ciel and the Angel Frames, but after Nephelia reassures him, he resumes trash-talking the heroes. (And Takuto insults him with a joke, like last time). The Angel Troupe defeats the automated fleet; a furious Rezon wants to call for reinforcements and defeat the Angels with brute force, but Nephelia persuades him to withdraw for now.

After returning to the Elle Ciel, Vanilla experiences chest pains while speaking to Takuto, and retreats to the infirmary. Following her there, Takuto finds her speaking to Dr. Kela. Observing that Vanilla's symptoms flare up in Takuto's presence, Kela figures out the problem: Vanilla is lovesick! Takuto soon gets it as well, but Vanilla remains clueless, so Kela suggests she seek Ranpha's assistance. Vanilla leaves to find Ranpha, and Kela alternately teases and advises Takuto as the chapter concludes.

Chitose's routeEdit

The Dark-Haired Girl (黒髪の少女?)

Unlike the other routes, Takuto is not accompanied by his partner Angel on the Elle Ciel (or, on Milfeulle's route, living with her following their retirement). Instead, he and Lester Coolduras have returned to the regular navy, and are now commanding a cruiser exploring the frontiers of charted space for Lost Technology. As usual, Lester is lecturing Takuto for his lack of work ethic. Takuto mopes about not being the commander of the Angel Troupe any more, and Lester tells him to knock it off.

Unfortunately, their conversation is interrupted by an encounter with the raider fleet. One of the enemy ships p attacks the Elle Ciel, but is destroyed by a long-distance shot from an unidentified ally. It turns out to be a new Emblem Frame, the Sharp Shooter, piloted by a new Angel, Chitose Karasuma.

Lester asks Takuto what an Angel would be doing out here, and Takuto can make one of a number of suggestions to Chitose: that she's here for him (which is the correct answer and will impress her), that she chased the raider fleet here, or that she got lost during a training exercise (which naturally offends her). She tells him she is bearing orders from Admiral Luft.

In any case, Takuto explains the operation of the H.A.L.O. System to Chitose, and she in turn informs Takuto that the White Moon gathered data from the previous war and upgraded the command system, which she can explain along with her Sharp Shooter if the player wants her to.

Chitose and Takuto then engage the enemy fleet, which like the previous war is automated and therefore will not result in loss of lives if the player destroys the ships. Because the player only has a cruiser and one Emblem Frame, the battle can be considerably harder than the equivalent scenario on the other routes.

Afterwards, Chitose leads Takuto and Lester back to the Elle Ciel, which is waiting nearby. Accompanying it are three more Angels: Milfeulle, Ranpha and Vanilla. On board the Elle Ciel, they meet Lieutenant Commander Murdoch, assigned as acting commander of the Angel Troupe under Luft's orders.

Lester wonders why there is a sixth Angel Frame to begin with. It turns out that after the war with the rebels, a part of the White Moon was opened and another Angel Frame, the Sharp Shooter, was discovered inside. Chitose was assigned as the pilot to the Sharp Shooter because she had by far the highest test scores in the Academy.

On the bridge, Takuto exchanges greetings with Almo and Coco, and listens while Murdoch explains the situation. The raider fleets have been attacking ships for fuel and goods, and there has been a minor attack on a military installation. Luft wants Takuto to lead the Angel Troupe and investigate; they can link up with Forte and Mint in the Zadha system.

Milfeulle asks Takuto to give a returning speech; he can tell them to relax (which pleases Milfeulle and Ranpha) or to get ready for the coming battles (which impresses Vanilla and Chitose). After that, Murdoch formally transfers command of the Elle Ciel and the Angel Troupe to Takuto and commiserates with Lester over the inability of the Angel Troupe to behave like proper soldiers, before leaving in a hurry with Takuto's old cruiser.

Seeing Almo, Coco and her senior Angels behave in a casual and even irreverent manner towards Takuto, their commanding officer, Chitose becomes stressed. When Takuto wants Chitose to call him by his first name, she is shocked beyond belief and is very embarrassed, since she was taught to call her superiors "Commander." Moreover, Takuto is the Hero of the Empire, and she feels he deserves more respect. In contrast to the other routes, Takuto lets her address him as Commander Meyers for now, although she is willing to let him call her by her given name.

During the next Chrono Drive, Takuto visits the park and looks over all of Chitose's personal and military data, becoming more and more impressed with all of Chitose's high scores, top marks, and excelling abilities (her only problem is her lack of ability to "adapt," hence her surprise at the informality of life on board the Elle Ciel).

Chitose idolize
Chitose encounters him in the park, and they converse briefly. Chitose expresses her intense admiration for Takuto, the hero who saved the Empire in its time of crisis. She jumped at the chance to join the Angel Troupe and serve in the elite unit that saved Transbaal from Eonia, and is overjoyed that she was not only able to meet Takuto, but to talk to him as well. She has even read every article she could find about him.

When Takuto mentions the other Angels, however, Chitose becomes upset. She asks him if they're always like "that," like when they were behaving in a seemingly disrespectful manner towards him on the bridge earlier. Takuto assures her that it's the Elle Ciel's style and he's not upset about it, and offers to lend her his ear any time.

Just then, the conversation is interrupted when Kuromie summons Takuto to the Space Whale room, because the Space Whale has picked up a mysterious message from space it cannot understand. However, the voice is familiar, but not exactly the same as a person's, and it mentioned the name "EDEN" (Eden was the name of the civilization wiped out by the Chrono Quake 600 years ago, which gave birth to Lost Technology and allowed the rise of the Transbaal Empire). Takuto promises he'll try to see if a machine on the Elle Ciel can decipher the message. The Space Whale also tells Takuto that something is upsetting Chitose, and he promises to look into it.

Soon after that, the Elle Ciel actually does pick up the message, but it's a garbled mess, and only "EDEN" is intelligible. Almo promises to clean up the message as best she can, and Coco will try to trace the message back to its source.

Chitose comes into the bridge then, wanting to ask Takuto to supervise her training. He shares the information with her, and she volunteers to help decrypt it. Takuto then decides to tour the ship, and Chitose accompanies him.

After a free time segment, in which they hang out with the other Angels and Takuto gets reacquainted with the Elle Ciel's crew, Chitose feels down, so Takuto walks her back to her room. There, over a cup of tea, she expresses her deep disappointment over the contrast between her expectations of the Angel Troupe as a strict, professional unit and the carefree attitude of the real Angels. He tries to reassure her again, explaining that their relaxed nature is a secret to their strength.

Back on the bridge, Takuto is able to contact Luft for new orders, but the communication is suddenly cut off as the raiders attack again. The enemy fleet is led by Rezon Mayzon, whom the heroes battled as a minor villain last time during the Eonia war, with a new ally, Nephelia. He screams in fear upon realizing it's the Elle Ciel and the Angel Frames, but after Nephelia reassures him, he resumes trash-talking the heroes. (And Takuto insults him with a joke, like last time). The Angel Troupe defeats the automated fleet; a furious Rezon wants to call for reinforcements and defeat the Angels with brute force, but Nephelia persuades him to withdraw for now.

During the battle, however, Chitose performs poorly. At the debriefing, she apologizes profusely before running away. Ranpha says to leave Chitose alone; Milfuelle is unhappy with the idea, but Ranpha points out that they can't help her right now. Takuto offers to talk to Chitose afterwards. Milfeulle pledges to help Takuto in getting Chitose to get along with them any way she can. The Angels leave, and Takuto is left wondering what to do as the chapter concludes.

Chapter 2Edit

Milfeulle's routeEdit

Milfie's Feelings (ミルフィーの想い?) In a staff meeting on the bridge, Lester announces that Chitose is handling the decryption of the mysterious message that Elle Ciel picked up. As they are discussing the subject, Milfeulle walks in on them with some ointment for Takuto. When she realizes she's interrupting them, she leaves, disappointed.

Chitose reports that the message appears to be directed at the "Children of EDEN," presumably meaning the Transbaal Empire, and contains such phrases as "fulfill your mission" and "there is no time left." However, she is unable to completely decipher the message. Takuto suggests using EDEN-era relics the Elle Ciel found during the frontier survey to complete the translation.

Going to the storeroom to pick up the artefacts, Takuto, Forte and Chitose encounter Milfeulle there again, this time helping the ship's convenience store. When they have difficulty finding what they need, Milfeulle tries to help them, but instead causes a minor accident and injures herself. The party assures her that they can manage without her help, and she leaves again. Forte then takes Takuto aside and expresses her concerns about Milfeulle's odd behavior.

Afterwards, Takuto returns to the bridge, hoping to find Milfeulle there. Almo teases him about his relationship, and along with Coco asks how far they've progressed. To their great surprise, Takuto admits that he and Milfeulle haven't even kissed. Almo and Coco start arguing about what the ideal kiss is like and what Milfeulle would like. When Lester declares the whole conversation to be stupid, Takuto claims that he likes married women, shocking both Almo and Coco. He then leaves the bridge as Lester yells at him to correct the misunderstanding.

Back in his cabin, Takuto finds the ointment along with a note from Milfeulle, with a postscript saying that she's "trying [her] best." Takuto wonders what she means, and looks for her during the subsequent free time segment, where he finds her trying such things as firearms training, boxing and even telepathy, with little success.

Milfeulle lottery

Takuto goes down to the convenience store, which happens to be running a lucky draw in conjunction with his return to the Elle Ciel. There he finds that Milfeulle has won the jackpot, seemingly having regained her luck... except she was covering up the fact that it took her 100 tries, and the chance of winning the grand prize is 1:100. Wondering why Milfeulle is trying so hard to impress him, Takuto tries to question her, but she runs away.

Creta calls Takuto down to the hangar to discuss the Lucky Star. It turns out Milfeulle asked for it to be prepped for the next engagement, and a worried Creta asks Takuto if he's really planning to have it sortie. Takuto says no, and starts worrying about Milfeulle again; Creta suggests that although Milfeulle's ability to pilot the Lucky Star was dependent on her luck, hence her retirement after losing it in the final battle against the Black Moon, she might be able to regain it if her mental health increases, just like how the other Emblem Frames work.

Takuto realizes that Milfeulle has been trying to imitate the other Angels in order to match their ability to fly their Emblem Frames. Fearing that she might try to sortie while in an unfit condition to fly the Lucky Star, he calls her to his cabin for a talk. There, hoping to protect her, he tries to convince her that she doesn't need to try to return to the Angel Troupe, and says he cannot let her attempt to fly the Lucky Star again. She bursts into tears and leaves.

Fast forward two days later; Takuto hasn't seen Milfeulle at all in that time. The Elle Ciel encounters a number of unidentified objects, and Takuto is unable to direct Forte and Chitose to inspect them due to communication interference. Just then, the Lucky Star takes off from the Elle Ciel. A panicked Creta contacts the bridge to inform Takuto that Milfeulle has stolen away in the Lucky Star; they attempt to recall her, but receive no response. The unidentified objects, now revealed to be an attack satellite with escorts, begin advancing towards the Lucky Star.

Unable to risk the Elle Ciel, Takuto, against Lester's objections, elects to fly a shuttle out to get Milfeulle back. He makes direct contact with her ship, and pleads with her to return to the Elle Ciel, saying it's too dangerous out here.

An overwrought Milfeulle says she just wants to be with Takuto, to make lunches and cakes for him, to be loved... but she can't because of the war. Because of this, she's desperate to be of use to the team, so that she can be with him again.

Takuto apologizes to her; in wanting to protect her, he had disregarded her feelings. He asks for her to stand side by side with him, and the couple declare their love for each other again. Just then, the attack satellite launches a barrage of missiles at them, but Milfeulle is able to draw out the Lucky Star's power and stop the attack. With Milfie back in top shape, the Angels are able to defeat the enemy with ease.

With the restoration of her abilities, Milfeulle rejoins the Angel Troupe. The ship hosts a party in the cafeteria to celebrate her return, where she demonstrates her luck again with a flip of ten coins at once, first all heads and then all tails - a callback to the first game. Unfortunately, her bad luck is back too: when she goes to check on the cake she's baking, it explodes spectacularly. Nevertheless, Chitose is very impressed by Milfeulle, and pledges to take her as an instructor.

Kuromie comes in and informs them that the kafukafu tree in the park has suddenly started budding again, despite only blooming every 100 years. Takuto hints that it might be because of the prayer Milfeulle made under the tree, and the couple start to get lovey-dovey until the others tease them about it, as the chapter draws to a close.

Ranpha's routeEdit

The Big Bang of Love (愛のビッグバン?)

Dear Tact,
It's already been a whole day since we broke up.
How are you?
You haven't changed?
I... still remember you even now.
I love you more than anybody else in space.
That is the genuine truth.
But... when I think about you and Chitose, I had no choice but to say goodbye and leave.
Her family is poor. Her life is hard. Debt collectors must be coming every day to seize her furniture.
Even in her decaying life, Chitose acts brave, I know that.
She needs support or she will give in at any moment.
So please be there for her.
And be happy together.
Chitose is a truly good girl.
I'm sure that the two of you will be a perfect couple.
Farewell, Tact.
I hope both of you find happiness.
Ranpha

Thus reads the letter that Takuto finds on his desk. It appears that her breaking up with Takuto and pushing him into Chitose's arms mirrors the plot of the romance film they watched together the other day. He wants to speak to her and set things straight, but she isn't answering her comm.

As he's leaving his room, he runs into Chitose, who has a report for him on the mysterious message the Elle Ciel picked up. It appears to be directed at the "Children of EDEN," presumably meaning the Transbaal Empire, and contains such phrases as "fulfill your mission" and "there is no time left." However, she is unable to completely decipher the message. Takuto suggests using EDEN-era relics the Elle Ciel found during the frontier survey to complete the translation.

After picking up the artifacts from the warehouse, they decide to get a drink together. Chitose accidentally drops her coin, which rolls under the vending machine, so Takuto treats her. As they sample their drinks, Takuto says it's time to track down Ranpha, and Chitose tells him she's watching them from the corner of the hallway. When Ranpha realizes she's been spotted, however, she runs away, and Takuto chases her but fails to catch her.

Chitose handonhand
Realizing he needs to speak to Ranpha before even more misunderstandings occur, Takuto spends the next free time segment looking for her, but is unable to catch her and sometimes (depending on player decisions) even makes it worse. Giving up, he decides to take a break in his room, where he finds another letter telling him to go to the park, supposedly a lucky spot where a wonderful experience awaits. "I'll be praying for your happiness from the faraway sky," Ranpha ends the letter.

After expressing his bemusement at the last line (they're on the same ship!), he decides to investigate the park. There he meets Chitose, who was led there by a similar letter from Ranpha. Takuto tells Chitose everything that's happened, and she explains that while her family is not wealthy, neither are they impoverished. For example, she bought a small lunch on her first day on the Elle Ciel not because she couldn't afford anything more, but merely because she was nervous and unfamiliar with the selection (she later ended up hungry and bought something from the convenience store).

Then Chitose notices Ranpha spying on them from the cover of a tree. Takuto and Chitose pretend to be getting along well while approaching the tree, and when they're close enough, Takuto rushes Ranpha and finally manges to catch her and explain everything to her.

But Ranpha still wants to part ways with Takuto, as she feels he cannot be happy with her. She is certain that she's forcing him to push himself too hard and wearing him out, and bids him farewell before running away again.

Back in his room, Takuto muses about his love for Ranpha. He's even willing to walk with her around the city while wearing those embarrassing pink matching t-shirts, and regrets originally hesitating to do so. Thinking about the shirts again gives him an idea, but just wearing the t-shirt isn't enough to communicate his feelings, so he devises a plan to show her how he feels with heart and soul.

The Elle Ciel Drives Out just as he's finished, and the enemy attacks. Lester recalls him to the bridge, but Takuto makes a side trip to the hangar first.

Ranpha lovedecleration
Takuto finds Ranpha, and declares his love for her (complete with a cheerleader-style chant) while dressed in his "project" - a thoroughly outlandish outfit featuring not only the pink t-shirt but also huge banners and even a "♥Ranpha♥" headband.
"I'll keep up with you no matter where you go! If you go at the speed of sound, I'll chase after you with the speed of light!"
— Takuto Meyers —


Overjoyed, Ranpha embraces Takuto, and the couple make endless proclamations of their overflowing love for each other. Takuto then returns to the bridge; Lester, initially furious with Takuto for being late, is even more scandalized by his outfit, and even Almo and Coco are surprised at his shamelessness. Lester begs Takuto to get changed before taking command, and he does so. Even during the pre-battle pep talk, however, Takuto and Ranpha upset Lester with their lovey-dovey conversation. The chapter ends shortly after the battle, with the couple continuing their saccharine courtship in front of everyone in the hangar.

Mint's routeEdit

Floral Pink (フローラルピンク?)

Unfortunately, it turns out Mint doesn't want to go on a date with Takuto, or even to have a talk with him. When he tries to press her, she asks "Do you love me?" Takuto reacts with indignation, when Chitose walks in on them. She starts speaking to Takuto, but backs off when she realizes he's "occupied." Mint takes Takuto's response as an inability to answer her question, and withdraws into her room.

Takuto asks Chitose to meet him in his room in a minute. After she leaves, he stands outside Mint's door for a moment, trying to transmit his thoughts of his love for her. He then leaves.

Chitose is apologetic for accidentally interfering with Takuto's attempts to mend his relationship with Mint, but Takuto expresses the view that it'll work out. In any case, Chitose has a report for him on the mysterious message the Elle Ciel picked up. It appears to be directed at the "Children of EDEN," presumably meaning the Transbaal Empire, and contains such phrases as "fulfill your mission" and "there is no time left." However, she is unable to completely decipher the message. Takuto suggests using EDEN-era relics the Elle Ciel found during the frontier survey to complete the translation.

After they pick up the artifacts from the warehouse, Chitose apologizes to Takuto again, blaming herself for his relationship problem, although Takuto says it's his fault. Takuto is unsure what to do after Mint refused to see him, and Chitose thinks it might help if he got her a present. Takuto is uncertain because Mint, being a telepath, would know what the gift was even before opening it, but Chitose says that presents are wonderful even if you know what's in them - the feelings behind them are what's important.

Takuto is motivated to go out and buy a gift for Mint now, but realizes he has no idea what to get. Chitose offers to go with him and help him pick something out, as a way to make up for her responsibility in the matter. They go to the shopping district together, looking for something that Mint will like yet will surprise her. However, despite being spoiled for choice, they are unable to find a suitable present, although they do experience several humorous situations like Chitose getting attached to a teddy bear she finds and Takuto almost walking into a lingerie store by mistake.

Finally, at a cosmetics shop, they see some floral pink lipstick. Recalling the curtains and cushions of the same color in Mint's room, Takuto picks it up immediately, despite the salesperson trying to get him to buy something else (in part because she mistakes Chitose as being Takuto's girlfriend). Later, Takuto apologizes to Chitose for taking up all her time, but she says it's alright, and she did enjoy shopping.

As they go to give the gift to Mint, she runs into them. Takuto tries to present the lipstick to her, but believing Takuto and Chitose to be courting each other, Mint instead slaps him and runs away crying. As Takuto is about to run after her, Vanilla suddenly stops him. It turns out Dr. Kela has a message for him concerning Mint.

In the infirmary, Dr. Kela reveals that Mint has lost her telepathy. Kela discovered this during the examination after the previous battle, but Mint hasn't told anyone. Vanilla tried to treat the problem with her nanomachines, but was unsuccessful. Mint was very insistent that Dr. Kela keep it a secret, as she feared Takuto would remove her from the Angel Troupe once he found out.

Upset at Mint for not telling him and himself for not noticing, Takuto decides to spend the subsequent free time segment tracking Mint down. Eventually he follows her to her room, where she initially refuses to let him in. He tells her he could use his commander authority to open the door, but he doesn't want to do that, and she reluctantly lets him in.

Takuto confronts Mint with his knowledge of her losing her telepathy. He apologizes for being too insensitive to notice the change in her behavior, but expresses anger that she didn't trust him enough to tell him. She claims that she didn't feel the need to tell him, and tries to avoid further discussion of the issue, but he insists. Mint tells Takuto to go back to Chitose, and is angered when he denies there's anything between them.

Finally Takuto presents Mint with the lipstick again. When she sees it's floral pink, she freezes. He admits he depended on her telepathy too much and forgot to make an effort to express his feelings for her; in turn, he asks her to tell him how she really feels, in her own words.

Mint crying
Mint confesses that she tried to manage without her powers at first, but every mistake she made dug her deeper into a pit. When the Trick Master's radar malfunctioned, she feared being made to leave the Angel Troupe and Takuto, and tried everything she could to prevent it. She wanted to tell Takuto, but was afraid that his heart had already left her for Chitose, and couldn't convince herself otherwise.

Takuto embraces Mint as she cries on his chest. As she clings to him, she realizes she can hear his feelings - her powers have returned! Their shared moment is interrupted, however, by an enemy ambush; before she leaves, Mint thanks Takuto for helping her, and he declares his love for her again.

After the battle, Takuto takes Mint to the infirmary for a checkup just to be sure. Mint turns out fine, and Vanilla is curious as to why/how Mint first lost, then regained her telepathy. Dr. Kela explains that the immediate trigger was probably a bump on the head, but Mint's emotional turmoil was the underlying factor and the reason Vanilla couldn't treat her. In any case, with her recovery, Mint feels there's no reason to worry any longer. (IE: She was thought Takuto was cheating on her and didn't want her doubts to be confirmed with telepathy.)

Mint lipstick
In her room, Mint muses that this may not be the only time she has to work without her telepathy, and it's thus important to trust and be open with others. Unfortunately they both only realized it when she actually lost her ability. Takuto says he doesn't want to just apologize again for his part in the problem, and gives her the lipstick again. Mint asks him to put it on her, and teases him for not having Chitose show him how when he admits he doesn't know.

After putting it on, Takuto compliments Mint's appearance, and she gives him a kiss as the chapter ends. (Which we don't see.)

Forte's routeEdit

The Two's Flower (ふたりの花?)

Lester reports on the fake merchantman from the previous chapter. It turns out that the hull registration was real, but the ship itself had gone missing several days ago. A bomb was found on board, but safely disposed of. However, a section of the ship has proved impervious to scanning; Lester wanted to destroy the ship, but Creta insisted on a through examination of the captured ship for data and technology. Takuto decides to permit Creta to bring the ship on board for study, as the Elle Ciel enters Chrono Drive.

As he leaves to patrol the ship, Takuto's thoughts turn to Chitose's mistakes in the previous battle. By coincidence, he runs into her while walking; she has a report for him on the mysterious message the Elle Ciel picked up. It appears to be directed at the "Children of EDEN," presumably meaning the Transbaal Empire, and contains such phrases as "fulfill your mission" and "there is no time left." However, she is unable to completely decipher the message. Takuto suggests using EDEN-era relics the Elle Ciel found during the frontier survey to complete the translation.

After picking up the artefacts from the warehouse, Takuto asks Chitose about her special training, and she says that it starts in front of Forte's room in five minutes. They go there together to find a note on the door: "Today's training. Find me. Time limit: 30 minutes." Takuto decides to observe Chitose as she looks for Forte.

They walk all over the ship, but Forte's not in the simulation room, or the firing range, or the park, or the training room (places where Chitose assumed she'd be preparing for the training). However, she's not in the hangar, cafeteria, lounge, convenience store, bridge or Whale Room either.

Having failed to meet the time limit despite her best efforts, Chitose is disappointed. Takuto takes her to the infirmary, where Forte is waiting. He explains his reasoning thusly: Forte asked Chitose to search for her, so she wouldn't be in places she'd normally be. At the same time, she wouldn't go to any excessively unusual places, such as the warehouse. Thirdly, it might take a while for Chitose to find her, so she'd go somewhere where she could pass the time comfortably, in this case chatting with Dr. Kela. (And lastly, the infirmary has excellent coffee.)

Chitose bemoans her inability to analyze the information logically, but Forte points out that she excelled at that in the academy. The problem is more deeply rooted: Chitose lacks the ability to think for herself. "Think for yourself and find the answer. That's today's special training."

After Forte dismisses Chitose, Takuto talks to Forte. She emphasizes again the importance of letting Chitose learn by her own experience, despite Takuto's concerns. Nevertheless, she acknowledges that the training will be stressful for Chitose, and asks Dr. Kela to take care of her (incidentally, another reason for choosing the infirmary as her hiding spot).

Standoff
During the following free time segment, Takuto checks up on Chitose, who is struggling with the problem. That night, he has a strange dream: Forte and Chitose have their guns trained on each other. He wakes up to the sound of a gunshot, covered in a cold sweat.

Deciding to meet Forte before heading to the bridge, he is surprised to find Chitose in Forte's room, pleading with her to explain what is it she lacks. Takuto asks Forte to give Chitose a hint, and she agrees, but first offers her some chewing gum. When she tries to take a piece from the box, however, it snaps on her finger. Forte tries to use the prank as an example of unexpected things to watch for, but Chitose only takes offense at the trick. Forte refuses to give any more hints, and when Chitose begs for an explanation, Forte tells her to think about it some more.

After Chitose leaves, Takuto asks Forte why she doesn't just say it openly. But she can't: if she told Chitose to abandon her preconceptions and start suspecting everything, she'd just take it too far and become paranoid. Takuto wants to help Chitose, but Forte tells him not to spoil her and to have more faith in Forte's training methods.

The conversation is suddenly interrupted by an explosion on the ship. Lester contacts Takuto and tells him that a number of probes have escaped from the captured freighter and infiltrated the Elle Ciel. Realizing their intentions to capture or destroy the ship, Takuto and Forte leave to secure the engine room while Lester holds the bridge.

The probes have disguised themselves as various personnel aboard the Elle Ciel. The first one is in the image of Takuto, and Forte destroys it. As they take the elevator down to D Block, Chitose contacts them. She's hiding in the gun range, where Creta has apparently attacked her with a laser. Takuto orders her to shoot the fake, and when she hesistates, he explains the situation. He tells her to suspect everyone she meets is a probe in disguise, and to shoot without hesitation if she things it's suspicious. After that, Forte expresses her fear that Chitose might take it too far, but without any other way to save her, they just have to believe in her.

The probes are waiting in ambush outside the elevator, but Forte takes them out. She heads to the engine room alone, directing Takuto to get Chitose. On the way there, he hears a gunshot, and finds Chitose standing over Forte's corpse. Fortunately, it turns out to be a probe. Chitose tells Takuto that she understands what Forte was trying to teach her now, but he is afraid that she's simply shooting anything she sees.

Lester reports that there are only three probes remaining, but they're all in the engine room. Chitose runs to the engine room; Takuto, fearing that she might shoot the real Forte, runs after her. There, they run into the convenience store clerk; Chitose shoots "him" twice in quick succession and destroys the probe.

They see Forte standing in the middle of the room, and Chitose dives out of cover, aiming at Forte; Forte responds in kind. Takuto screams at them not to shoot, but they both fire - each destroying a probe hidden behind the other.

Forte praises Chitose's shooting, and a stunned Takuto asks Chitose how she knew it was the real Forte. She cites the smell: the probes use laser weapons, and thus do not smell of gunpowder. Takuto points out that a probe could have picked up a gunpowder firearm on the ship, but Chitose says that even so, it would not be using Forte's Shanad #5 perfume. Additionally, she saw a probe behind Forte, and when Forte pointed her gun in Chitose's direction, she knew the last probe was behind her, and she just had to believe in her. In a similar vein, the store clerk should not have been in the engine room; to be sure, she fired a warning shot, and when "he" failed to react, killed him down with the next shot. Chitose thanks Takuto and Forte for helping her break the mold of her preconceptions.

With Drive Out in twelve minutes, Takuto tells Lester to prepare for the ambush certainly waiting at the end of Chrono Drive. Sure enough, waiting for them is a fleet commanded by Rezon Mayzon, whom the heroes battled as a minor villain last time during the Eonia war, with a new ally, Nephelia. He is shocked when he realizes that "Operation Super Secret Probe Hijack" has failed, but after Nephelia reassures him, he resumes trash-talking the heroes. (And Takuto insults him with a joke, like last time). Forte and Chitose defeat the automated fleet; a furious Rezon wants to call for reinforcements and defeat the Angels with brute force, but Nephelia persuades him to withdraw for now.

After the battle, Chitose attempts to return the handgun she borrowed from Forte, but Forte tells her to keep it. When she finds out it was the gun Forte used in her first campaign, Chitose wants to return it even more, but Forte tells her it's a reward for completing her special training. Forte calls Chitose an excellent student, and says she has nothing more to teach her, concluding by welcoming her to the Angel Troupe once more.

Forte flower
Later, in Takuto's cabin, Forte and Takuto talk about how Chitose has grown. Takuto admits that he was also worried about Forte dying back there, and expresses his great relief at being with her again. Forte notices that the flower in his room has finally bloomed, having been raised by the two of them together.

Chitose inadvertently interrupts their romantic moment when she rings the doorbell, asking to come in. Takuto lets her in; it turns out she's looking for Forte. To Forte's shock, Chitose asks if she can address her as "onee-sama" (big sister). Chitose views Forte that way since she devoted time to special training just for her, and says she has never respected any one so much before. When Forte tries to argue that calling someone unrelated to you "sister" is rather weird, Chitose even says that it was Forte who taught her not to be trapped by preconceptions. The chapter ends with a mortified Forte fleeing the room as Chitose chases after her.

Vanilla's routeEdit

The Great Love-love Plan (ラブラブ大作戦?)

The chapter begins with Takuto musing about Vanilla's feelings for him - and his for her, and deciding to go talk to her about it. On the way, he runs into Chitose, who has a report for him on the mysterious message the Elle Ciel picked up. It appears to be directed at the "Children of EDEN," presumably meaning the Transbaal Empire, and contains such phrases as "fulfill your mission" and "there is no time left." However, she is unable to completely decipher the message. Takuto suggests using EDEN-era relics the Elle Ciel found during the frontier survey to complete the translation.

After picking up the artefacts from the warehouse, Takuto realizes he hasn't eaten. At the cafeteria, he finds Vanilla brewing a green medicinal soup from various herbs and vegetables. She offers Takuto and Chitose some, and the player has one of three options: to dive right in and drink it (which pleases Vanilla when Takuto expresses his happiness at her making it for him), to let Chitose have it first (which pleases Chitose but disappoints Vanilla), or to give it to the bodyguard captain first. Regardless, the soup turns out to have a very... distinct taste, although Chitose surprisingly likes it a lot.

Afterwards, Almo and Coco start pestering Takuto about his relationship progress. It turns out they've even formed a "Support Vanilla Club," with Ranpha as the president. The medicinal soup was the outcome of them accidentally lending Vanilla a health food book when she came to borrow a cookbook. Almo and Coco warn Takuto of unrest stirring within the "bodyguard" group, which is plotting to stop him from courting Vanilla. As he leaves the bridge, the girls press him to confess to Vanilla soon.

Figuring out that Ranpha is the reason the whole ship is talking about their relationship, Takuto decides to go see her. Outside her room, he hears her trying to dress up Vanilla to attract him, even going so far as to suggest padding her chest with oranges. She's even named her plot "Operation Takuto's Heartthrob."

Eventually Ranpha lets him in, but Vanilla quickly leaves after seeing him. Takuto tries to follow her, but Ranpha blocks him. They then discuss Ranpha's efforts to help Vanilla, including watching a romance movie together (a dismal failure - in a plot about a terminally ill girl falling in love with her doctor, Vanilla focused on the doctor's efforts to cure the disease.) Ranpha inferred that Vanilla doesn't think of herself as a girl, and so persuaded her to cook for Takuto. She then sends Takuto out so she can continue working on her plan.

Vanilla maid
During the next free time segment, Takuto goes searching for Vanilla, but is unable to speak with her. Afterwards, however, Vanilla turns up in his room in a maid's dress, and feeds him cheesecake (actually tofu, mirroring a mistake she made in the previous chapter). Although Takuto is still appreciative, Vanilla is disappointed and tries to leave, as her "symptoms" are still getting worse.

Takuto explains to Vanilla that she's in love, and Vanilla admits that she feels differently for him than she does for the other Angels, Dr. Kela or her space rabbit Mugimugi. While she is considering the matter, Lester recalls Takuto to the bridge as the enemy is attacking. Before they part, Takuto tells Vanilla that he wishes to continue talking to her afterwards, and she says she'd like to as well.

After the battle, Vanilla quickly runs to an upper block of the Elle Ciel, and Takuto decides to resume their conversation. When he goes to her room, however, she isn't there. The bodyguard captain steps forward and tells Takuto that Vanilla has gone to the park. He also gives him a wilted clover which she dropped on the way, and asks Takuto to go after Vanilla. He says that as one of Vanilla's bodyguards, Takuto's existence is "unforgivable," but... anyway, if Takuto makes her cry, all 52 bodyguards will not overlook it. Takuto then leaves.

Vanilla pinkypromise
Sure enough, Vanilla is in the meadow with the clovers, with the garland Takuto made for her. They sit down together and discuss her feelings, and Vanilla asks him how he feels about her. She says she doesn't just want to be his little sister, but someone special to him. Takuto confesses his feelings for her, and they pinky promise to be together forever.

Upon their return to the bridge, Ranpha, Chitose, Dr. Kela and even the bodyguard captain are there to celebrate their relationship, complete with poppers. While Ranpha waxes romantic about the couple, however, Chitose continues to misunderstand the matter, even believing the event to be Vanilla's birthday and apologizing for not having a gift. Ranpha declares Takuto to be the best "present," but Chitose still mistakes Takuto as being like an older brother to Vanilla. When the party finally sets Chitose straight, Vanilla becomes embarrassed and flees as the chapter ends on a lighthearted note.

Chitose's routeEdit

The Worrisome New Troupe Member (悩める新入隊員?)

While Takuto is in his cabin fretting about Chitose's inability to get along with her fellow Angels, she comes in with a report for him on the mysterious message the Elle Ciel picked up. It appears to be directed at the "Children of EDEN," presumably meaning the Transbaal Empire, and contains such phrases as "fulfill your mission" and "there is no time left." However, she is unable to completely decipher the message. Takuto suggests using EDEN-era relics the Elle Ciel found during the frontier survey to complete the translation.

While they are in the warehouse to pick up the artefacts, Milfeulle comes in to invite Chitose to a tea party. However, despite Takuto encouraging her to go, Chitose declines, saying she needs to focus on deciphering the message. After she leaves, Takuto asks Milfeulle to let him go in Chitose's place.

At the lounge, though they enjoy Milfeulle's cakes, Takuto and the Angels worry about getting Chitose to open up to them. Takuto says that she needs some time, pointing out that the other Angels didn't initially trust him either.

Takuto then checks up on Chitose while patrolling the ship, along with the other Angels who are trying to figure out how to get close to her. After that, he visits her in her room, where she's practicing archery. Her accuracy suffers due to her stress, but when she tries to stop, Takuto encourages her to overcome her inner turmoil by continuing without giving up. She performs a little better after that.

Later, Chitose visits Takuto in his room, thanking him for helping her. When he says that Milfeulle and the others were worrying about her, she becomes unhappy and pledges to continue training harder. Takuto tells her that while training is important, it's also vital for her as an Emblem Frame pilot to enjoy her life. He explains that this is what makes the Angel Troupe strong, and that trying something different in her free time will be helpful. Promising to think about it, she leaves.

Picnic2

On the way out, she runs into Milfeulle, who wants to invite her to a welcoming picnic. Takuto tells Chitose to go, saying it'll be a nice change of pace, and even takes her to the park. Though initially nervous, she is quickly charmed by Milfeulle's cooking and opens up to the other Angels. She has so much fun with them that she even laughs when Ranpha hits Takuto, and expresses her joy and being able to bond with the other Angels. Takuto and Chitose both thank the Angels for helping her.

Shortly after, Chitose inadvertently addresses Takuto by his given name. She panics and starts apologizing, but Ranpha and Vanilla suggest that she'd wanted to do just that all along, and Takuto persuades her to do it again. She does so, and he welcomes her to the Angel Troupe again.

Unfortunately, the arrival of the enemy interrupts the picnic, and everyone returns to their posts. Just before the battle, Chitose realizes that the Sharp Shooter has regained and even exceeded its usual power, and the Angels roundly trounce the opposition.

Chitose fountain

After the battle, Chitose thanks everyone for helping her. The Angels return to their picnic, happily indulging in Milfeulle's cooking. When Milfeulle goes off to get dessert, Takuto invites Chitose to sit by the nearby fountain.

Chitose says she now understands what Takuto means by enjoying everyday life, and expresses her happiness at being with everyone. She confesses that she had burdened herself with impossible expectations of the Angel Troupe, but says that she's comfortable with them now, and is happy to be a part of the Angel Troupe.

Chapter 3Edit

Angel Troupe Assembled! (エンジェル隊集合!?)

Common events Edit

As the Elle Ciel heads for the Zadha system to rendezvous with the remaining members of the Angel Troupe, Coco exclaims that she has succeeded in narrowing down the source of the mysterious message - the Lena system, where the raider fleet is believed to be operating from. Is this a coincidence?

Chitose comes in and announces that she has completed decryption of the message. Lester summons the other members of the Angel Troupe, and they listen to the message together.

Children of EDEN. Now, a great calamity returns from beyond time. Hurry to me.
White Moon. Now is the time to bind the finite and infinite as one, and fulfill your ancient mission.
White Moon. Children of EDEN. Hurry. We have little time left.
You must fulfill your mission. Before the world is engulfed in calamity.

The party wonders just who is giving them this "mission," and what the references in the message mean. Lester speculates that the message concerns Lost Technology, and suggests asking Lady Shatoyan about it. Each of the Angels advances a possible explanation for the message sender not identifying themselves: Milfeulle suggests that they're embarrassed, Ranpha writes it off as a prank, Forte suspects it's false information leaked by the enemy, Vanilla infers that they wish to remain anonymous, and Chitose thinks they were unable to transmit any more than they did. Takuto can agree with any one of the Angels, which increases his relationship with her.

The Elle Ciel Drives Out, and with the communications interference gone, they can now contact Admiral Luft. Takuto, coming up with a bold plan to get the better of the enemy, orders Almo to contact Admiral Luft - on an unencrypted channel, over Chitose's protests.

Takuto reports on their status and the identity of the enemy leader to Luft, and says (falsely) that the Emblem Frames are operating well below their normal strength (again confusing Chitose). He then maneuvers the conversation into a discussion of their spaceball games back at the academy (where Luft acted as Takuto's supervisor). During the final match, they used their special "formation zero" and won the game. Lark offers to come to Takuto's upcoming game, and promises to inform their star player Lark about it.

After the communication ends, Lester directs the Elle Ciel to a different destination than originally planned. The Angels are curious as to what that was all about, so Takuto explains: formation zero was a passphrase the space ball players used, signalling a decoy pass to the usual receiver. The actual pass would be to the forward, Lark. Takuto's plan is thus to trick the enemy into laying an ambush at the original rendezvous point, while the Elle Ciel and the Angel Troupe link up at the real point.

Ambushfleet
Sure enough, Rezon's fleet is gathered at the ambush point. However, a detached force led by Nephelia jumps the Elle Ciel. She praises Takuto's cunning, but taunts him for not expecting her to understand his typical style of deception and devise a trick of her own. Takuto comments on Nephelia leaving her nominal superior, Rezon, as bait, and Nephelia says that it's only natural for her to make use of "everything."
Takuto: Make use of everything? You don't have many friends, do you?
Nephelia: Friends? ...You are mistaken if you think that I am the same as you. Unfortunately, I have no need of such an illusion.
Takuto: You say that so readily. An ordinary person never could.
Nephelia: An ordinary person, hm? Hahaha...

Nephelia contacts Rezon to inform him of the Elle Ciel's position, and the fleet starts closing in on the Elle Ciel. Just then, however, the rest of the Angel Troupe arrive, catching the enemy in a pincer of their own. Takuto can greet the newcomers with a welcome (which pleases them) or with a boast (which pleases the existing party). Amused by Takuto's trick, Nephelia compliments him before cutting the channel.

The Angels cut through the enemy fleet and knock Rezon's flagship out of action, forcing them to retreat. However, Takuto is still concerned about the size of the enemy fleet and the contents of the message. Suddenly, Kuromie comms Takuto and tells him that the Space Whale has received a strong thought wave in the two o'clock direction - towards the Lena system, where the enemy retreated. Takuto asks Lester to report the information on the mysterious message to the White Moon at the earliest possible opportunity.

Sparklers
The Angel Troupe and Takuto then adjourn to the lounge. After a brief reunion, Takuto checks up on the Angels during the subsequent free time segment, and then spends some time with his partner. Later, the Angels all gather in Chitose's room. After some banter concerning Takuto and his partner, Chitose shows the group some sparklers. The girls play with the sparklers on the porch while relaxing together.

The following day, as the Elle Ciel continues for Lena, Takuto reports the contents of the mysterious message to Luft, and requests for reinforcements. Luft promises to forward the message to the White Moon and get assistance for Takuto.

Milfeulle's routeEdit

As the Angels welcome Milfeulle and Takuto back in the lounge, Mint asks Takuto what his first kiss with Milfeulle was like. Ranpha does the same to Milfie, and the embarassed couple shock the other Angels when they admit that they've never even thought about kissing.

Ranpha pulls Takuto aside and threatens him with violence if he ever makes Milfie sad or lonely. Takuto promises not to, and Ranpha tells him to take care of her. When Takuto comments on how much Ranpha cares for Milfeulle, she gets flustered and says that she has to look after her airheaded friend. Takuto embarasses Ranpha further by asking her to continue being Milfie's best friend.

Milfeulle sandcastle
After his tour of the ship, Milfeulle takes Takuto to the Whale Room, where there's a sunset scene. Takuto is expecting Milfeulle to kiss him, but it turns out she wants to make a big sandcastle (a childhood dream of hers). After they're finished, Takuto asks Milfeulle if she has any other dreams for her to fulfill, and she tells him her fantasies of living together peacefully with him. They both express their desire to make that dream come true.

An embarassed Milfeulle then adds that she'd also like to share a goodnight kiss with Takuto every day they're together. Before Takuto can use the opportunity, however, Almo recalls him to the bridge. The couple bid each other goodbye.

When they turn up at Chitose's room, Mint and Ranpha note the sand under their fingernails. Mint acts as if she found out they were kissing through her telepathy, leading everyone to get excited until Takuto blurts out that they were just making a sandcastle together. The Angels continue to tease the couple, although Chitose is confused as to why they couldn't just admit that's what they were doing.

Ranpha's routeEdit

In the lounge, Ranpha gets affectionate with Takuto, including sharing a cake with him. The other Angels tease her, reminding her that she initially hated him when they first met, accused him of peeping on her in the shower, and even kicked him. Ranpha is flustered by this, but Mint reassures her that they just think she's changed for the better. When Chitose starts taking notes, Ranpha proudly proclaims that it was Takuto's love that allowed her to grow stronger, and advises the junior Angel to seek out her true love.

Takuto says it's the same for him, leading Forte and Mint to start teasing him instead, leading Ranpha to give a dramatic retelling of the story of their previous conflict and reconciliation. Forte and Vanilla find the part where Takuto bursts into the hangar and declares his love for Ranpha too outlandish to believe, and are thoroughly shocked when the others confirm Ranpha's story. Forte comments that Takuto has changed a lot, too, and he and Ranpha start getting romantic again.

Ranpha fountain
Later, after he tours the ship, Ranpha takes him to the park, where she poses before the illuminated fountain. She asks him to say something romantic (if he talked to her during the previous free time segment, she'll specifically ask him to say the line from a romance novel they discussed). Takuto can get it mostly correct (which pleases Ranpha), completely wrong (which upsets her for ruining the mood, but she forgives him) or completely correct (which overjoys her).

At Chitose's room, when Mint starts to tease the couple about what they were doing together, Takuto initially says "nothing." On seeing Ranpha's unhappy reaction at this, however, he openly confesses that they were on a date by the fountain, like a scene out of a romance film. Mint gives up, saying there's no fun in teasing them when they're so open about it.

Mint's route Edit

In the lounge, Ranpha and Milfeulle asks Mint how far she's gotten along with Tact. Forte notices that Mint is wearing lipstick, leading to even more eager questioning. When Mint readily admits that the lipstick was a gift from Takuto and asks them if it suits her, however, the Angels are taken aback. Forte comments that the old Mint would have tried to hide it; when Mint offers to tell them about it, Ranpha gives up, complaining about how sickly sweet their relationship is.

With Milfeulle's help, Takuto maneuvers the topic of discussion to her baking a cake for Chitose and the rest of the Angel Troupe. Ranpha demands cake too, claiming she needs comfort food after the previous conversation. Nevertheless, she and Forte aren't above teasing Takuto instead.

Mint spacewalk
Afterwards, Mint asks Takuto to go on a walk with her. His first thought is the park, but she wants to go somewhere where there'll only be the two of them - on an EVA spacewalk, outside the Elle Ciel. Mint muses about how beautiful the scenery is and how much she enjoys being alone with Takuto, but he worries more about his ability to control the costume/spacesuit, as he's not used to such things like Mint is (especially not in zero gravity). He ends up losing control of his motion briefly, causing Mint to laugh at him for a moment before grabbing him. They end up cuddling close together, watching the stars, as Mint alternately teasing Takuto and expressing her happiness at being with him.

In Chitose's room, Forte starts teasing Mint for bringing Takuto, while Milfeulle and Chitose express concern about her flushed face and misty eyes. When Vanilla says that Mint has no physical abnormalities and the problem is mental, Forte starts teasing Takuto as well, but Ranpha is surprisingly eager to avoid the topic. Mint stresses Ranpha out further by expressing a desire to tell them all about their date, and after much embarrassment the blonde Angel finally manages to get everyone to move on to the original reason for their gathering.

Forte's route Edit

While the Angels are getting reacquainted in the lounge, Ranpha asks Forte about her relationship with Takuto, waxing romantic along with Milfeulle about their travelling through the stars together. When Takuto tries to argue that a frontier survey doesn't really count, Mint snarks about the idea that Takuto would be focused on his work, with Milfeulle adding that he and Forte must have spent a lot of time together. With everyone interested in his relationship progress, Takuto feels backed into a corner, but Forte just dangles a bait in front of the others before snatching it away with a subtle reference to the flower they were growing.

An unsatisfied Ranpha is certain that they are hiding something and asks Chitose to rat on them, during which the rookie Angel surprises her senior by again referring to Forte as "onee-sama." Forte hurriedly takes Chitose aside out of the lounge and tells her not call her that in public. Chitose asks if it's okay in private, upon which a flustered Forte insists that she just not do it at all. When they return, Ranpha suspects them of trying to get their stories straight, which they deny. However, the telepathic Mint comments on the "onee-sama" matter, stressing out Forte (though fortunately the other Angels don't pick up on it). Finally Takuto intervenes and offers to treat the Angel Troupe to anything they like, settling the matter. Forte apologizes to Takuto, but he says it's alright; after all, the Angel Troupe is back.

Forte odenstall
Afterwards, Forte invites Takuto to the park late at night. It turns out she had Mint set up a fast food stall there, and dines with him. He wonders why a stall is here, but she tells him to just enjoy himself - it's her treat. He proceeds to order a lot of food, and she jokingly tells him he's going to have to work it off tomorrow. They muse about this being the only place in the stars where they can eat oden together like this, and share a toast together.

At Chitose's room, Ranpha teases the couple; since they showed up together, they must have been spending the previous time together. When Forte doesn't deny it, Milfeulle accuses them of getting something to eat together on their own, which Forte confirms. However, she declines to give any more details, disappointing Milfeulle and Ranpha by leaving them hanging. Mint tells Ranpha that Forte is impregnable, and the blonde starts scheming to grill Takuto instead before the topic of discussion turns back to the sparklers.

Vanilla's route Edit

In the lounge, Forte starts probing Takuto concerning his relationship with Vanilla. Using a leading question, Mint gets Takuto to inadvertently admit that he confessed his feelings to Vanilla. Milfeulle, Mint and Forte start discussing and even taking bets on how the scene might have transpired; when Chitose brings up the Navy regulations on gambling, Mint says they can pass the winnings off as Takuto "treating" them. Takuto tries to object, but Mint and the others scold him for trying to "monopolize" happiness, and then for trying to hide it.

Finally Vanilla pleads with the other Angels not to tease Takuto so much. Forte says they're just curious to find out what happened, and suggests that Vanilla could tell them instead. Vanilla is far too embarassed, however, so they return to pressing Takuto while treating themselves to various drinks and snacks at his expense. Vanilla apologizes to Takuto for causing him trouble, but he says it's alright - he missed the festive mood of the Angel Troupe - and offers to share a snack with her. This leads to renewed teasing from Forte and the others.

Vanilla cleanears
After the free time segment, Vanilla invites Takuto to the park, whereupon she asks him to rest his head in her lap so she can clean his ears with a cotton swab. They express their contentment at being with each other like this, and he dozes off in her lap. He wakes up some time later, and Vanilla, realizing the Angels were supposed to meet in Chitose's room, takes him there.

At Chitose's room, Forte starts questioning the couple again, to their great embarassment. Ranpha notes that it unusual for the normally punctual Vanilla to be late. Mint again tricks Takuto into blurting out what they were doing together, this time by pretending that she read their minds and finding out that they were doing something overly embarrassing.

Chitose's routeEdit

In the lounge, the Angels tease Chitose about her appetite after she accepts both Milfeulle's and Ranpha's offer of gateau chocolat and a chili dog respectively, backing off only after Vanilla warns her of her calorie intake. When Mint and Forte discover that Chitose attended a picnic with the others, they are relieved to know that she was able to bond with the other Angels after all.

The Angels regale Chitose with tales of their experiences during the first war, and how they were able to bond with Takuto and each other. Takuto tells Chitose that he looks forward to see her develop as a part of the team in the same way, and she readily expresses her gratitude at his praise. This leads Forte, Mint and Ranpha to tease the two of them for flirting, although Milfeulle doesn't quite "get" what they're insinuating.

Later, after the sparkler games, Takuto returns to his room to find a pile of documents Lester has dumped on him to sign. Realizing that he's dropped his pen sometime after Chitose invited him over, he decides to retrace his steps. Figuring the pen is in her room, he sounds the doorbell a couple of times, but receives no response. The door is unlocked, so he enters.

Chitose reminiscence
Inside, he finds Chitose holding a stuffed animal, reminiscing sadly about her father. When she finally realizes he's there, she's shocked, but quickly regains her composure. After returning his pen, they talk about her toy. It was a gift her father was bringing back for her on his last deployment, but he met a fatal accident on the way, leaving the stuffed animal to her. Takuto apologizes for prying, but Chitose reassures him it's alright and praises his empathy, along with mentioning that he looks just like her deceased father. The two of them then bid each other goodnight.

Chapter 4Edit

The Great Calamity (大いなる災い?)

Common eventsEdit

The Elle Ciel continues towards Lena, facing little resistance along the way. While Takuto annoys Lester with his laidback attitude again, a message comes in from HQ directing them to rendezvous with reinforcements. However, concerns are raised when Almo is unable to contact the Transbaal naval fleet at Lena to inform them of the changed schedule. Takuto wonders if something happened to the fleet, but Lester dismisses it; they had considerable strength and support from friendly units in surrounding systems, and should not have been so easily destroyed in battle.

Elsior resupply
As they meet the resupply convoy, Takuto and Lester comment on the seemingly excessive escort - three battleships. It turns out there's a good reason for this: Empress Shiva is on board, along with a "gift" from Luft: the Chrono Break Cannon, which was originally removed from the Elle Ciel following end of the Eonia coup d'etat. Takuto takes Shiva to the room she used during the previous war, and after some small talk Shiva explains the reason she came here personally.

Shiva highlights an old legend passed down in verse through the Holy Mothers of the White Moon, corresponding to the line in the mysterious message about the "great calamity from beyond time" and "binding the finite and the infinite." Shiva states that the only person who knows the legend is the Holy Mother of the White Moon, indicating that the sender of the message is closely connected to the White Moon in some way. The poem reads:

Twin watchmen dance around paradise.
Jet black. Certain, but finite.
Pure white. Uncertain, but infinite.
Divided twins. That which shall overcome the calamity from beyond time.
Waiting twins. Waiting for the union beyond time.

Takuto then asks Shiva how she knows, and after a period of hesitation, Shiva explains that her mother, Lady Shatoyan taught it to her - in other words, Shiva is Shatoyan's daughter, born from an affair Shatoyan had with the late King Gerald. Shiva had always been told that her mother died when she was very young, and was very happy to learn that she was in fact alive. Takuto is upset to think that they lived together for so long yet were unable to share their affection, but Shiva tells him to cheer up; she did not tell him all this to see him depressed. She even expresses amusement that she was able to see him surprised for a change upon hearing the story.

In any case, as Empress and a representative of the White Moon, Shiva is obligated to accompany Takuto in investigating this threat. Takuto still feels that she didn't need to come personally, but welcomes her regardless, and takes her to see the Angel Troupe at her request.

In the lounge, the Angels are astonished to see Shiva, who was rumored to have come aboard the Elle Ciel. Milfeulle starts to greet her in her typically chipper way, but is scolded by Ranpha for her irreverence until Shiva reassures them, telling the Angels to be at ease. Shiva then notices Chitose, whom she had not met previously; a panicky Chitose introduces herself as the newest member of the Angel Troupe. The other Angels, observing her nervousness, try to help her; she initially appears to recover, but when Shiva asks Chitose to avoid the formality and behave as she usually does, she is barely able to promise to do so before fainting to the great shock of the other Angels.

After Vanilla applies nanomachine treatment and Chitose recovers, Shiva asks Takuto if Chitose is really "alright" - she comes across as unreliable due to fainting simply from meeting Shiva. There are three dialogue options:

  • Takuto can say that it's normal for Chitose, this being her first meeting with the Empress, and that he gets nervous around her too. This leads to objections from Angel Troupe, who claim that they don't act that way; Chitose is impressed by the Troupe's apparent lack of anxiety (raising her affection meter) and expresses a desire to match them.
  • Alternatively, he can say that she's a member of the Angel Troupe; when Chitose protests that she still has a long way to go, Takuto tells her to be more confident. This leads to praise from Milfeulle and Ranpha (raising their respect for Takuto), and a blushing Chitose thanks Takuto and the other Angels (also raising her affection).
  • Finally, he can say that he still has high hopes for her; when Chitose protests that she still has a long way to go, Forte explains that she needs to have confidence in herself. Forte, Mint and Vanilla are all pleased with Takuto for his message to Chitose, who pledges to work hard and be more confident.

Shiva speaks well of the Angel Troupe, whose friendship remains unchanged even with a new member, and speculates that this is due to Takuto's guidance. She asks the Angels what they think of him; their responses here depend on their performance so far in the game. Afterwards, as Shiva prepares to leave with Takuto, he has a brief but pleasant conversation with his partner Angel.

Outside in the hallway, Shiva comments that Takuto and his partner are getting along well, and says to herself that if he is happy, then so is she. A surprised Takuto asks if she said something, which she quickly denies as she briskly walks away.

Beachparty
Afterwards, Milfeulle comms Takuto and asks him to come to the Whale Room. He goes there to find the Angel Troupe having a beach party, along with Shiva and her personal attendant. After some embarrassment, he happily joins them in their fun and games.

With the resupply nearly complete, the Elle Ciel prepares to leave for Lena again. However, Almo is still unable to contact the fleet at Lena; the last communication with the system was a transmission from Lenamis, a satellite with a recently-discovered rich mineral vein orbiting Lena IV. Tact puts in orders to head for Lenamis as soon as the resupply finishes, and tells everyone to get some rest. Almo is initially happy to hear this, but is disappointed when Lester elects to remain on bridge watch. Takuto then leaves to spend some time with his girlfriend.

The Elle Ciel and escorts arrive at Lena, but there is still no sign of the Imperial fleet. Takuto expresses his concern for Shiva and asks her to return to her room, and she agrees to do so after confirming the fleet's status. Lenamis is found to have an unusual structure on its surface, which turns out to contain the core of the Black Moon. The party is hailed by Rezon, who taunts them with his reconstruction of the Black Moon, and pronounces himself the future ruler of the Empire. Shiva condemns his evil intentions and demands his surrender, to which he angrily responds by ordering an attack.

Takuto and Shiva point out that the Elle Ciel has the Chrono Break Cannon, but Rezon, apparently unaware of how the original Black Moon was destroyed, initially dismisses it as a bluff. Takuto asks Rezon how he acquired the Black Moon after its previous destruction; it turns out Nephelia brought the core to him and told him only he could revive it. When he finally figures it out, Rezon panickedly calls them cowards before regaining his composure and ordering his fleet to smash the Elle Ciel. Before the battle begins, Takuto can declare that he'll bring the war to a decisive end (which impresses Milfeulle, Ranpha and Vanilla), ask the Angel Troupe to be careful (which impresses Mint, Forte and Chitose), or to tell his partner he's counting on her (which greatly pleases her).

The Angel Troupe defeats the enemy fleet, and Takuto fires the Chrono Break Cannon at the Black Moon... whose rock exterior shatters to reveal a huge ship, the O-Gaub, controlled by Nephelia. The O-Gaub launches a huge swarm of fighters which severely damage the Elle Ciel and disable her escorts.

Deciding that their only chance of survival lies in taking out the O-Gaub here and now, Takuto orders all energy diverted to the Chrono Break Cannon, even though it'll leave the Elle Ciel's shields drained.

Rezon mocks the party and commands Nephelia to destroy "all our enemies." Nephelia responds by opening fire on Rezon's ship, on the basis that he is, in fact, her enemy, and reveals that she was merely using him for her own purposes.

"With you out of the way, the White Moon and Transbaal will belong to the Valfask... No, to me!"
— Nephelia —

Nephelia takes over Rezon's ship by remote, sending it on a suicide run against the Elle Ciel. The attacking ship is destroyed just in time, and Rezon dies ignobly.

With the Chrono Break Cannon recharged, Takuto fires it at the O-Gaub... with absolutely no effect. Nephelia taunts the party, mocking Takuto for thinking that the weapon that destroyed the Black Moon once would work again. She tells them further that the O-Gaub is a fusion of the Black Moon's technology with that of the Valfask, far superior to anything "humans" have created.

Nephelia: Six hundred years ago, you showed great resistance to us.
Takuto: Six hundred years ago...?
Nephelia: I'm done playing with you, Children of EDEN.

Nephelia remotely disables the Chrono String Engines on the Elle Ciel and the Emblem Frames in the same way the Black Moon did during the previous war, leaving them disabled and defenseless. She gloats about the power she has, as well as the even greater power she will have once she seizes the White Moon. Shiva defiantly declares that they will never allow that, to which Nephelia coldly tells them to resist with all their strength... if they can. The O-Gaub and its fighter wing resume tearing apart the helpless Elle Ciel.

Just as all seems lost, a white light envelopes the Elle Ciel and the Angel Troupe, restoring their engines and allowing them to survive the incoming attack. As they wonder what happened, an unknown party hails the Elle Ciel. The transmission is traced back to the Black Moon's drifting core, and Almo identifies the voice as the one who sent the original message bringing them here. With the Negative Chrono Field down, the core instructs them to escape from the area. Shiva and Lester are both suspicious of the Black Moon's motives, but Takuto points out that they don't have a choice if they want to survive. Besides, it's been warning them about this, so he feels it can be trusted.

The Elle Ciel performs an Emergency Chrono Drive, with the Angel Troupe and the Black Moon's core following it. As she watches them go, Nephelia muses that she has been waiting 150 years for this moment, and plans to "play" with the Children of EDEN just a little more.

Milfeulle's route Edit

After leaving the bridge, Takuto returns to his room and files some documents. Just as he finishes, a nervous Milfeulle shows up at his doorstep with Ranpha, who pushes her along. Milfie initially tries to avoid the reason she came here out of embarrassment, before asking him to come to the park with her. She's still hopelessly nervous when they get there, however.

Milfeulle awkward in park
Milfeulle admits that she was thinking about the conversation in the tea lounge after the Angel Troupe got back together, when they discussed kissing. She wants to kiss Takuto, but is too embarrassed to come out and say (much less do) it, so he tries to take the initiative. Unfortunately, he ends up just as nervous as she is. The other Angels, who are spying on them from the bushes, end up falling and giving themselves away. Mint, Ranpha and Forte try to pretend they just happened to run into each other, but Chitose admits to what they were really doing.

Milfeulle is upset with them (especially Ranpha, who was the one who convinced her to ask Takuto out), despite their assurances that they were doing it out of concern for their relationship. The Angels then leave; with the mood totally ruined, Takuto and Milfeulle go back as well.

Ranpha's route Edit

Ranpha carepackage

Takuto visits Ranpha in her room, where he finds a big box of things she's sending home to her younger siblings. Ranpha happily talks about the books and toys she's collected for them, and lets Takuto read the letter she's sending to them as well. He praises her for being a good sister, to which she says her brothers are even nicer; they always reply to her letters right away even though the post is expensive, especially after the war. Takuto expresses a desire to meet them someday, and helps her carry the box to the store.

Mint's route Edit

Mint luckycharm
Mint visits Takuto in the commander's room with a new tea she wants him to try. It turns out to be "banana chocolate flavored tea"; a.k.a. tea that's supposed to taste like a chocolate-covered banana. Takuto finds it delicious, and drinking this tea makes him feel like he's at a carnival. Mint agrees that it feels fun somehow, right? By the way, Mint asks Takuto that after the battle's over... but then she interrupts herself to go look for her chain which has slipped off. It turns out that Mint has taken to wearing the "floral pink" lipstick on a chain around her neck, because she wants to wear it as a necklace all the time. Why? Because it was a present from Takuto, so if she wears it, it feels like Takuto is with her all the time. Takuto remarks that he's never actually seen Mint wear it, which Mint explains is because she wears it under her shirt, like a "secret guardian charm." That is, she's wearing it in the place closest to her heart. But that's also why she panicked earlier when the lipstick fell off the chain, since it fell down her shirt and got caught somewhere around her stomach... then suddenly Mint gets mad at Takuto because he was thinking, "Not at your chest, but around your stomach?" Takuto swears that's not what he was thinking, but Mint angrily claims that for the sake of her pride, it got caught in the CLOTHES around her stomach! Jeez, she came into Takuto's room to invite him on a date, but now she thinks she won't. Oh, and please return the cup to the lounge. (By the way, for curious players, the reason Mint becomes angry is because the subtle implication of the chest and stomach question is that if the lipstick passed her chest and got caught in her stomach, it's because she's flat-chested and thus had nothing to "catch" the lipstick with.) However, Takuto repeatedly apologizes and swears not to think things like that anymore, so Mint forgives him. But in return, Mint has to come with her on a day of shopping some time after the battle, and he also has to carry her luggage. Takuto reluctantly goes along with this, ruefully musing to himself that it's always as if Mint has him wrapped around her finger. Mint wants to go shopping to buy Takuto a present this time, namely a wristwatch, which Takuto thinks is a good idea since he could always start wearing one. Then she gets the idea to buy a matching pair of wristwatches, since a matching pair of rings would be too embarrassing. Although Takuto mumbles under his breath that he'd like to buy Mint a ring someday...but he remembers that Mint can read minds and hastily tries to backtrack, but it's already too late, and Mint is blushing. Then Mint says she'll be waiting, just for Takuto. However, she changes the subject, since "that kind of talk is a long way off", so instead let's talk about what to do with this vacation!

Forte's route Edit

Forte roomchat
Takuto visits Forte in her room, but first she asks him to wait a minute. When she lets him in, she explains that this is because her room was a little messy, not because Takuto was interrupting something. As Forte goes to prepare coffee, Takuto picks up a magazine she was reading called "The 100 Best Spots of Transbaal Nightlife". There's a special feature on orbital restaurants and other sightseeing spots. One page is creased: "Socialite Dance Hall, That One Special Night." When Forte comes back, Takuto asks her about the magazine, and she says she bought it to kill some time. Takuto asks Forte if she wanted to go to that dance hall. Forte says yes, once they've got time off, going there might be nice. Takuto promises okay, let's do it! When the war is over, let's go to the dance hall! Forte is surprised that Takuto wants to go to the dance hall specifically, but Takuto reminds Forte that they were going to dance in the previous game's events, but they were interrupted by assassins. Forte is pleased that Takuto remembered. But Takuto is confused that the magazine doesn't list the price. Forte says the price is in the lower left. Takuto then clarifies that that's the normal price, but he wants to know the price for reserving the dance hall. Forte is shocked, Takuto wants to reserve the entire dance hall?! There's two reasons: one, Takuto doesn't want anyone getting in between the two of them, and two, Takuto is a little worried about showing off Forte in a dress in front of other men. Forte blushes and hits Takuto, but then muses that it would be a great idea. Dancing until they're exhausted, and then a cold drink and a break before dancing again. Takuto adds that after that, they could go to dinner on one of the nicest restaurants on the planet. Forte says that would be nice, and then expresses irritation that they've just been running and fighting in wars since they met, so Takuto promises that everyone's doing their best to make what they need happen: a slow, quiet day for just the two of them to relax. Forte promises to do her best for that day, and Takuto promises that when that day comes, he'll reserve the dance hall and it'll just be the two of them dancing.

Vanilla's route Edit

Vanilla knitting sweater
Takuto finds Vanilla knitting something on the beach in the Whale Room, and Vanilla says it'll be finished soon. Vanilla agrees to let Takuto relax next to her while she knits, and the sounds of the waves makes Takuto sleepy. In fact, before he can finish asking Vanilla what she's knitting, he falls asleep. When Vanilla wakes Takuto up, she has Takuto turn his back to her so she can measure something. She holds up a sweater to Takuto's back and says the sweater needs to be longer. Since Vanilla is checking the size using Takuto's back, Takuto correctly deduces that the sweater, when finished, is intended for him. Takuto enthusiastically says he can't wait, and he promises to get Vanilla something in return, over Vanilla's assurance that she doesn't really need one. Now what would be a good gift for Vanilla...and then the player is given three choices. The player can choose to go have fun somewhere, which after a bit of discussion turns into ideas for a vacation, and Vanilla wants to go to the zoo (this will impress Vanilla greatly). There's a zoo called Space Animal Land, and Takuto promises to take Vanilla on "their first date" there sometime. Or, the player can choose to offer Vanilla a kiss. But this causes Vanilla to blush and flee the Whale Room, so Takuto has to beg her to come back and reassure her that he was just kidding around and wasn't really going to do anything, and the topic of the zoo comes up anyway (this choice will have no affect on Vanilla's affection at all). Finally, the player can choose to offer Vanilla a present to match the one she's planning to give Takuto. But what would Vanilla like? Vanilla wants a medical textbook, but Takuto vetoes that idea because they can always ask Dr. Kera for that one. Takuto was thinking more along the lines of a day off together, and the topic of the zoo comes up (this will impress Vanilla, but not as much as the first choice of offering to go somewhere fun from the start).

Chitose's route Edit

After Shiva's meeting with the Angels in the lounge, Chitose frantically apologizes to Takuto for shaming the Angel Troupe with her fainting episode. Takuto reassures her, telling her she can make up for it by doing her best in the next battle. He then rejoins Shiva, who discusses Chitose with him; Shiva observes that Takuto likes Chitose a lot, which he hastily tries to downplay.

Chitose kid

Shortly before the Elle Ciel resumes its journey towards Lenamis, Takuto decides to visit the park, where he encounters Chitose stargazing. She tells Takuto about her father, who used to watch the stars with her while telling stories of his life in the Navy. This filled her with a yearning to explore the stars, leading to her current place. Chitose expresses a desire to protect the people important to her, just as her father did.

Here, Takuto can tell Chitose he believes in her (which pleases her), that she needs to work hard, or that she shouldn't be so intent on emulating her father (which disappoints her). Chitose pledges to protect the people of the Empire, her seniors, and even Takuto, whom she considers important to her. Takuto finds it embarassing for a girl to say he's important to her, which causes Chitose to turn red as she tries to clear up the perceived misunderstanding.

After an awkward silence, a blushing Chitose bids Takuto goodnight and leaves, but then quickly returns. She confesses that she has a "special respect" for him more than anyone else, before fleeing again.

Chapter 5Edit

The Truth of White and Black (白と黒の真実?)

The Elsior "Drives Out" back into normal space in an area where there aren't any enemies around. The voice from the red crystal is glad they made it out safely, and wants them to come and speak. Takuto offers to open a hatch on the warehouse side, which Lester questions but Takuto reassures Lester that if the red crystal were an enemy, it could have destroyed them all back there. When Takuto comes to check on the Angel Wing, they're worried about that Nefuria woman and her supercarrier, but Takuto reassures them all that at least they're still alive, so they still have a chance. In the meantime, Takuto takes them all to talk to the voice from the red crystal.

When they get there, Shiva notices that the red crystal is the same one that came with Eonia after them all, but why would the Black Moon want to help them? Then the person comes out of the red crystal...and it's Noah of all people, the same little girl that was with Eonia!!! Noah calls Nefuria a meddlesome woman for messing with her Black Moon, and then angrily asks our heroes to call her "Lady Noah", you insolent peasants, and what were they thinking showing up in this puny little ship? By the way, where is the administrator? What administrator? Why, the White Moon's administrator, of course, do they know nothing?! Then Takuto figures out that Noah is talking about the Holy Mother of the Moon. So Noah tries to figure out who among everyone is that person. Could it be Milfeulle? Milfeulle responds in confusion, so Noah says it couldn't be someone so thoughtless. Ranpha laughs and says that the world would end if Milfeulle was the Holy Mother of the Moon. Noah calls Ranpha an idiot laughing like a twit, so it isn't Ranpha either. Ranpha asks Noah who she's calling an idiot, does Noah want a fight?! Mint asks Ranpha to calm down, but Noah says it's not Mint either, because Mint has strange ears. Mint says that's none of Noah's business. Forte says hold it right there, she doesn't know who Noah is, but the administrator...Noah interrupts that if Forte doesn't know who Noah is, then Forte's not the administrator either. Besides, Forte couldn't be the administrator anyway the way she's swinging that riding crop. Forte sarcastically apologizes, and Vanilla cautions Forte that if Forte gets excited, her blood pressure will rise. Noah says the White Moon could make an interface like Vanilla, so Vanilla isn't too bad. Vanilla says she is not a machine. Noah says whatever Vanilla says, so that leaves...Chitose angrily remarks that Noah has just been very rude to Vanilla, and to please apologize to everybody! Noah says a subordinate to "the android" is a definite failure. Then Noah tells everyone to shut up, since she doesn't have time to deal with "you peons." Takuto muses that this is different from the Noah she met before. Shiva tries to speak to Noah, but Noah calls Shiva a child, to which Shiva angrily replies that Noah is a child too. Takuto tells Shiva to calm down, and then upon confirming with Noah that the Holy Mother would be the most celebrated person, Takuto figures out that Noah is talking about Lady Shatyarn, but then informs Noah that Shatyarn isn't even here. Noah says, so bring Shatyarn to her instead! Well, that's impossible, both because Shatyarn isn't even on the ship, and because she can't even leave the White Moon. Noah asks then why didn't Shatyarn bring the White Moon to her? At this rate they'll never be able to unite once again! Didn't everyone get Noah's message?! As Takuto explains to Noah, they did get the message, but not even Shatyarn understood what it meant, and also they only picked up Noah because she was along the way. Noah then realizes that the White Moon must have lost most of its data, but still exceeded the Black Moon, so now it can't even recognize the disaster they face! Well, now Noah has no further business with them. Bring her to Lady Shatyarn at once! Then she just goes back inside the crystal. The Angels don't know what to make of Noah's rudeness, just talking to herself and then getting mad. Mint and Forte realize that besides her personality, she was worried, and seemed like she was expecting something from Lady Shatyarn. So Takuto decides to contact the Whiet Moon, leaving a guard with the crystal just in case.

Upon hearing what's happened so far, Shatyarn agrees that the Angel Wing should bring Noah to the White Moon immediately. Takuto asks but what about the supercarrier? Luft also surprisingly insists on clearing up the White Moon business, because he's just gotten a report from the Third Fleet (after which communication was lost) that the supercarrier has begun invading the Transbaal system. It is attacking stationed fleets and civilians in its path seemingly at random, like a child stepping on ants. The Chrono Break Cannon didn't even scratch the supercarrier earlier, so everyone agrees that for now they need to return to the White Moon at once.

Takuto returns to try to get Noah to talk, but Noah insists she's not speaking with Takuto. Takuto wants them to work together to figure out how to beat the supercarrier, but Noah insists (before she's even tried to explain anything) that working together with them would serve no point, because they are just tools to Shatyarn, no matter how Shatyarn feels. The conversation becomes pointless, so Takuto resolves to come back later.

What happens next is slightly different depending on what route the player is playing. Takuto and his chosen Angel have a talk about Noah's refusal to talk, and each Angel finally comes up with a different strategy to draw Noah out of both her physical and metaphorical shell. Regardless of the route, the strategy eventually works and Noah agrees to talk to Takuto about what she knows, but the strategy is different depending on the Angel.

On Milfeulle's route, Milfeulle first muses that maybe Noah's acting rude because she just got here, and everybody's trying to get her to talk. Milfeulle would be crying and not saying anything if she were Noah. So Milfeulle goes to Noah and offers make her delicious food. Noah thinks Milfeulle is bribing her, but Milfeulle explains that it's because she wants to be friends with Noah. Milfeulle invites Noah into her room and fixes her a delicious dinner, and when Noah says the food tastes good, Milfeulle says that means Noah is a good person, and Milfeulle was pleased when Takuto and all her friends loved her food at picnics. This causes Noah to realize that Milfeulle's behavior is similar to using the spirit to draw energy from the Chrono String Engine: Noah may think Milfeulle's friendship talk is stupid, but that stupid talk also caused the meal Noah is eating to be extremely delicious; that is, Milfeulle's idealism has been made manifest in the food, like the power from a Chrono String Engine. This causes Noah to realize why the Black Moon lost to these people, so Noah decides (not by being bribed, she clarifies) that she's willing to talk to everyone about what she knows after all.

On Ranpha's route, Ranpha challenges Noah to a match of "menko" (a Japanese game where you throw cards at the floor, and try to overturn three of your opponent's cards before they can overturn three of yours), getting Noah to accept the match by accusing Noah of being scared to lose to a "stupid human." What do they wager? The loser has to do whatever the winner wants! This makes Takuto worried, and the player gets three choices: I don't want to see you lose, I'll believe in you, and leave this to me. Ranpha will get pissed off if the player doubts Ranpha with either the top or bottom choice, so the correct choice is the middle choice, that Takuto is willing to believe in Ranpha. The match attracts onlookers Dr. Kera, Creta, and Kuromie (and we learn that Kera used to play "menko" with the boys when she was young; in fact, Kera can deduce from Ranpha's throwing style that Ranpha didn't simply learn "menko" overnight). The match is terrifyingly balanced, but Noah almost wins when she uses a throwing move that turns over one of Ranpha's cards and one of Noah's own back to normal! That puts the score at two to zero, and Noah threatens Ranpha that if Ranpha doesn't win on her next turn, Noah will 100% win with her next move. Ranpha charges up for a move Kuromie actually recognizes called the "Flying Cloud Eight Finger Smash", which is only taught on the planet Dashiya in the frontier. It's a secret technique to flip over all three cards in one move! But in the history of menkosim, only three people know the Flying Cloud Eight Finger Smash. Ranpha recites a poem: "Savage claws tearing at mine enemy. Swallow's flight piercing the clouds. Show thine power before me! Ultimate move! Flying Cloud Eight Finger Smash!!!"...and it actually works, all Noah's cards are turned over, so Ranpha has come from behind and won! Noah thinks this is impossible, her calculations showed the cards couldn't behave like that! Ranpha admonishes that the impossible has happened and there's nothing Noah can do about it. Noah asks if the loser has to do what the winner asks, is Ranpha going to take Noah as a living specimen? Or is Ranpha going to make Noah hand over the core to the Black Moon? It turns out it's neither; Ranpha wants Noah to talk about the enemy and how to defeat them. But Ranpha isn't ordering Noah because Ranpha won the match, she's asking Noah. Takuto asks Noah the same, and Noah finally agrees to talk, since "you people" have "something" that can upset calculations. When Noah goes to the bridge to talk to everyone, Ranpha explains to Takuto that she used to pull this trick on her younger brothers, too, to open their hearts: people like that can get carried away if you push them, and then once they're having fun, turn surprisingly open.

On Mint's route, Noah tells Mint that talking to Mint is pointless, but Mint goads Noah into coming out of the red crystal by asking Noah if, by contrast, there was any meaning in shutting herself off? Noah comes out of the crystal to yell at Mint that there's no point in talking to Mint, but Mint again responds that there also is no meaning in remaining silent. Then Mint asks if Mint and the rest are annoying peasants, what does that make Noah? Noah replies that Noah is one who uses tools. Mint asks then where are Noah's tools? Noah has to admit she doesn't have any tools at the moment. So Mint explains that right now, Noah is merely a mouth attached to a brain. Her eyes and ears are shut. The only thing working right now is Noah's mouth. Additionally, Noah is lonely because right now, Noah is alone and powerless, and alone Noah can't do anything at the moment. So if Noah wants to talk, she should, or is Noah lazy? But Mint is not saying they will be Noah's tools; rather, if they work together as friends, it might help. After all, isn't just talking making Noah's feelings lighter? Even if they don't solve the White Moon and Black Moon problem, what's important to Mint is the heart of the friend in front of her. Noah rejects the idea of "friend", but Mint gives Noah a piece of apricot candy and says that there's value in pointless, meaningless things like love, or friendship, or even the apricot candy. Noah is confused because she doesn't understand, but as Mint realizes, that also arouses Noah's curiosity. Noah hates Mint, but Mint is flattered because she hasn't experienced that special feeling of being hated. Noah finally decides to make a pointless effort by talking about the enemy, but what if it's useless? Mint's final argument is that even if the conversation is useless, the act of talking isn't useless because it would lighten Noah's heart, so everyone can worry together instead of Noah worrying by herself. After Noah leaves for the bridge, Mint explains why this strategy worked: Noah is like "the old Mint" before she met Takuto; Mint used to believe that as a telepath, no one could ever understand her, but Takuto could.

On Forte's route, Forte asks Noah if they can talk. Noah doesn't want to talk to a tool like Forte. Forte says that right now all Noah's doing is shutting herself in the crystal, so if Noah has that much free time, can she talk? Noah still refuses. Forte says that Noah shutting herself in there or talking to Forte, does it matter to Forte if Noah wastes her time in some other way? Noah finally comes out and says Forte is annoying. Noah has no need to talk to tools. Forte says if Forte and the others are tools, then tools need to do work, right? But can tools do a good job if they don't agree with how they're used? Noah says that's a strange question, if tools don't agree to function then they're worthless. Forte reminds Noah that everyone is in fact going to the White Moon right now, just as Noah wants. Noah says well that's all they can do, since they lost to Nefuria and ran away. Forte says they ran away, but were not defeated. Noah accuses Forte of getting smart with her, but Forte explains that as long as they're alive, they still have a chance to win. And that is what Forte is asking of Noah: how can the tools win? Noah just reiterates that it's impossible, and they should accept that. Forte says no, Noah is going to talk regardless, Forte hasn't given up that easily. Noah again tells Forte that it's worthless to talk. Finally Forte actually slaps Noah, calling Noah a spoiled brat. Noah obviously protests, and Forte explains that it might be impossible to win, but they can't just give up and lose, so Noah is obviously just being spoiled. It might be true that Forte and the others are worthless tools who can't win and shamelessly run away, Forte won't deny that. But they're not going to stay like that; they're going to struggle until the bitter end. That's why Forte is talking with Noah now; even if Noah hates and curses her, they cannot afford to fail now. Then Forte asks Noah what she came here for. Noah can't answer. Forte says that if Noah really wants to win, she should cooperate with them, since they share the same feelings. But if Noah doesn't want to fight, she can just keep doing whatever she wants, and now she and Forte are done talking. Forte doesn't have the time to listen to someone complaining who has no intention of fighting. So what are Noah's true feelings?...well, now Noah's willing to tell Forte what she knows, now Noah wants to fight. But Noah pays Forte back for the slap by slapping Forte back, and calling it even.

On Vanilla's route, Vanilla offers Noah a tour of the ship, which Noah actually accepts because Noah has time to kill. First Vanilla shows Noah the cafeteria, which Noah considers to be too big, using too much unnecessary space. Then they go to the Whale Room, which Noah considers a waste of space since they should be storing freighters instead. Then Vanilla introduces Noah to the space rabbits and asks her to pet one named Neginegi. But Noah scares Neginegi at first, so Vanilla has to calm Neginegi down. When she does, Noah is able to pet the rabbit, which she considers to be warm. Vanilla explains that this is reducing Noah's pain and sadness--something Vanilla can't do. Noah thinks it's ironic that a nanomachine user is calling nanomachines worthless. Vanilla says her nanomachines are useful, but can't do everything. They can heal the body, but not the heart. In fact, the same could be said of everyone on the ship--the lady in the cafeteria cooks, Kuromie takes care of the animals, and Vanilla can heal people with her nanomachines. No one person can do it all, but everyone has something only they can do. So Noah asks if Vanilla is preaching that since giving information is something only Noah can do, Noah has to do her job? Vanilla says no, if Noah doesn't want to do it, she doesn't need to. Noah is confused as to what Vanilla means, and the player is given three choices: what's important is what you want (this will impress Vanilla), she's waiting to hear you say it (no effect), or ...sorry I don't get it (this will disappoint Vanilla). Regardless, the point of the matter eventually is that everyone has something they want to do, their own will--cooking, listening, fighting, etc. It's not what Noah "can do", but what Noah "wants to do". And doesn't Noah want to talk to them? Noah finally says all right, she's willing to talk, but not here, because it's hot and there are too many animals running around.

On Chitose's route, Chitose first attempts to appeal to Noah's better nature by explaining that if they don't get information on how to beat the enemy, most of the civilians in the Empire will be at risk! Noah says if that's what they think, they should hurry to the White Moon, since that's all they can do right now. Chitose finally says that until Noah talks, Chitose will not take a single step from where she's standing! Noah says Chitose should do what she wants, Noah is not talking to her. Takuto says it's pointless and Chitose and he should go and come back later. Chitose meant what she said about not moving a step until Noah talks, because Chitose has no power either, but she still intends to do something about the situation. So Chitose's going to stay here until she can make Noah understand how she feels. Even if Chitose's efforts are in vain, this is all she can do. But if Takuto is busy, he can go. The player is given three choices: no I'm staying too (this will impress Chitose), I'll stay you can go (no effect), or stop this (this will disappoint Chitose). Regardless, they both end up staying by Noah's crystal. Takuto radios Lester to inform him that Takuto is staying in the warehouse on vigil until Noah talks, so Lester's got the bridge. Three hours later, they're still waiting, and don't intend to lose, but then Takuto and Chitose get hungry...and then Milfeulle arrives to feed them, because Lester told the Angels what Takuto and Chitose were doing. But Milfeulle's brought too much food, three people can't eat all this. Then Ranpha arrives, curious about the vigil, and Ranpha's brought games and magazines and pillows for everyone. Then Mint arrives with drinks and snacks and it turns into a picnic, which Takuto finds a little weird. Later they're all tired since Noah still hasn't come out, but then Vanilla arrives with coffee to wake everyone up, and Forte (who had gotten held up working on the Happy Trigger) arrives with steamed oden from the cafeteria. While Chitose and Takuto are grateful, they remind everyone that originally only Takuto and Chitose were going to keep vigil, and they don't want to force the others into this. But the other Angels reply that a problem for Takuto and Chitose is a problem for the Angel Wing. Later, after Takuto takes a three-hour nap, everyone is asleep but him and Chitose. Then finally Noah comes out, and at first thinks they were all partying out of optimism. Then Chitose says they were waiting for Noah. Noah is incredulous that Chitose actually did what she said, Chitose didn't take a single step from her spot until Noah came out. Noah says Chitose chose an inefficient means and wasted her time to complete a worthless goal. Does Chitose know what that's called? Chitose correctly guesses that Noah is thinking of the word "stupid". Of course, that makes the rest of the Angel wing stupid as well, since all of them waited around. Why? Because they're all helpless without Noah. Only Noah has the information they need. So, please, Noah help them! Noah doesn't get them at all, that "just humans in the same unit" would go this far for each other. Takuto explains this is called "friends". Noah doesn't get them at all...but decides to talk, wondering just how far idiots like them can go. Besides, it would be annoying to keep having all these people buzzing around in front of her anyway.

What happens next is the same regardless of what route you're on. Noah explains that "that woman" is of a race called the Val-Fasc. The Val-Fasc are our enemy. Noah doesn't know what "Val-Fasc" means, but it's what they call themselves. The people of EDEN once fought against them. The Val-Fasc are not precisely the same thing as humans, because they have special abilities humans do not possess. They can control multiple machines simultaneously and don't need an interface to do so. That's why Nefuria was able to control the fleet and the fighters around the supercarrier just by using her body. Milfeulle remarks that this could be useful if it lets people control multiple appliances in the kitchen, to which Ranpha snaps that Milfeulle should keep her admiration to herself. The Black Moon's database doesn't have much data on the Val-Fasc, but this much is true: they've surfaced again after 600 years. In response to this, the Black Moon and White Moon are supposed to unite, since the two moons are a system produced to protect Eden from foreign enemies by developing more powerful weapons. Shiva says she never heard Shatyarn say anything about that, so Noah realizes Shatyarn is lacking even that data, after Noah spent so much effort to warn her about the enemy's reappearance. Chitose realizes that this is why Noah was sending that message, and Noah confirms that Noah discovered "that woman" was a Val-Fasc. Noah gets pissed off just thinking about that woman, because she took everything but the Black Moon's "core" out of Noah's control. Noah only escaped being dominated completely because she put up some protections and cut off some functions. Then, Nefuria used the Black Moon to create the O-Gaub. Noah thinks it's a disgrace that the Black Moon was created to fight the enemy, but was controlled to fight FOR the enemy. Milfeulle understands how Noah feels; Milfeulle would hate it if she didn't have Tact and had to work for the enemy. So Tact thanks Noah for telling them this, but Noah says not to thank her because the White Moon will be the Val-Fasc's next target. What would happen to Transbaal, if the White Moon were captured as well? Noah was previously trying to contact the White Moon, and she looks pensive about something, but says it's nothing. Then Tact asks Noah who she is, since she seems to be the administrator of the Black Moon. Noah explains that the previous Noah they met was just an interface designed to look like the real Noah. Usually, the real Noah is sleeping within the core, and leaves the interface to interact with others...but suddenly Shiva gets royally pissed off, thinking Noah is making an excuse for the Black Moon's previous slaughter and destruction. Noah retorts that the Empire allowed itself to become weak by not sharpening its blade even though there was no war. After all, the Black Moon's purpose was to evolve into a more powerful weapon, by the will of Eden. But the White Moon has forgotten ITS purpose. Since our heroes need Noah's information, Tact makes Shiva calm down and leave. So our heroes' new plan is to get to the White Moon, in case Lady Shatyarn knows something. Lester and Tact have a private conversation about whether or not they can trust Noah; Tact thinks they can trust her, and Noah isn't as bad a person as everybody thinks. Tact has Lester send the new information to the White Moon while Tact goes to check on everyone else.

After briefly wondering how they are supposed to beat "one of Eden's enemies", Tact snaps himself out of it and decides to go check on everyone else. After the ensuing "free time segment" (during which the player can optionally visit Noah's room and quiz her on what she knows, though for upcoming battles it's recommended the player use every time block to raise affection), Tact returns to the bridge, and we are treated to an animated FMV of Nefuria attacking ships with her O-Gaub, believing there is nothing to say to "worms" and warning them not to get in her way. Tact (and thus the player) learns from Lester that this time, Nefuria's attacked the Zadha system's resource satellite. The enemy seized the satellite, and Lester implies that the guards and civilians fleeing the satellite were killed (though he doesn't directly state it). The enemy is definitely moving towards the heroes' system, none of the Imperial Navy's weapons can damage the supercarrier, and to make matters worse the number of warships surrounding the carrier increases every day. Empress Shiva then sends her attendant to bring Tact to her room.

Once Tact arrives, Shiva demands to know why they haven't reached the White Moon yet. Tact says it will take three days, but Shiva demands that they should do it in one. Tact says this is unreasonable, so Shiva changes her question: what is the damage after the enemy's latest invasion? Tact tells Shiva what he's just learned about the latest casualties, this time in the Zadha system, and Shiva says that's enough! All they do is listen to casualty reports day after day! Shiva thought they could win if they had the Emblem Frames and the Chrono Break Cannon; was that just an arrogant delusion?! Shiva feels powerless. Tact reassures Shiva that everyone else feels the same way, but as the attendant reminds Shiva, they must not lose hope. Tact says that their best bet is to hope that once they reach the White Moon, something will be there to help them, since that's all they can do. Shiva apologizes for getting upset.

Some time after this conversation, the Elsior finally does arrive at the White Moon, which is a relief to Forte since she felt like it took forever. All of the Angels have been gathered on the bridge, and seeing the White Moon is a relief to everyone, since it's been so long since the Angels and since Shiva have seen the White Moon. It's a bittersweet homecoming, however, since the last time the Angels went to the White Moon, they found out it had a weapons factory and the Chrono Break Cannon, and now they've learned even further secrets, that the White Moon was originally developed as a defense system for EDEN. As Tact reminds everyone, however, it is still the same White Moon, filled with important people the Angels want to protect. Everyone then receives a hail from the White Moon, but surprisingly it is coming from Commander Luft! Why is Luft on the White Moon? Because he's there to have a discussion with Shatyarn about how to proceed. Luft is ashamed to report to Shiva that his forces have not even been able to do a good job stalling the enemy, but Shiva reassures Luft that Luft has done everything within his power to keep the damage to a minimum. After Luft has some brief commentary on how well Tact is getting along with his chosen Angel, the Elsior finally docks at the White Moon.

The Angels are relieved to be back at the White Moon, though Tact's chosen Angel is a bit nervous. Shatyarn and Luft take a bit to arrive, but when they do, Shatyarn formally welcomes Noah to the White Moon, though Noah says Shatyarn can dispense with the greetings and get down to business. Noah asks exactly how much information Shatyarn has about the White Moon and Black Moon. Shatyarn says she knows the White Moon is a weapons production facility, and that she was told that the White Moon and Black Moon were anathema to each other. Shatyarn then clarifies that the duties of the Holy Mother are passed down from generation to generation, and each time some information is lacking. Noah says ah, so ownership of the White Moon changes, that is why Shatyarn is lacking. So, it looks like Noah will have to explain everything from the beginning. Is that all right? Everyone agrees to that, they wish to know more about the moons, and they need Noah's help. So Noah begins her explanation by asking Shatyarn to recite the poem with her, but this time, they will alternate on the 2nd and 3rd lines. They recite the poem as follows:

Twin watchmen dance around paradise. (both Shatyarn and Noah say this)

Jet black. Certain but finite. (Noah says this)

Pure white. Uncertain, but infinite. (Shatyarn says this)

Divided twins. That which shall overcome the calamity from beyond time. (both Shatyarn and Noah say this)

Waiting twins. Waiting for the union beyond time. (both Shatyarn and Noah say this)

The poem turns out to be a password, and Noah expresses relief that the password hasn't changed. The password projects an image of outer space all over the room, and Noah clarifies that this is the White Moon's footage of when the White Moon and Black Moon lost sight of each other. Noah reminds everyone that she told them that both moons were developed as weapons, and that they both were supposed to evolve further, but she then adds that they were supposed to be a system to be used against the Val-Fasc, the true enemies of Eden. Each evolving by itself would not be complete, they had a final form they were supposed to reach, and then they could defeat the enemy. But six hundred years ago, when the Chrono Quake occurred, the space between Eden and the Val-Fasc must have been destroyed. War became impossible then, and even Noah doesn't know who would have won the war had it continued. Eden had been much more technologically advanced than Transbaal is today. To continue, the two moons were designed from opposing philosophies. "Mutations introduced by the uncertainty of human evolution and drawing out its potential...That is the White Moon. Oppositely, emphasizing the removal of uncertainty and aiming for steady growth...That is the Black Moon." Milfeulle complains that she doesn't get it, so Noah scolds her for not understanding something so simple and clarifies: the White Moon needs humans, the Black Moon does not need humans. Chitose gets it, it's the same as an Emblem Frame needing a pilot, but the automated ships are controlled by a machine. Noah agrees that it's like that. Tact comments that needing humans or not needing humans are indeed opposite philosophies. Noah continues that in order to figure out which of the two methodologies was best to make the ultimate weapon, the two moons fought as they evolved. Shatyarn figures out that this means that not only are the two moons weapons, but they are also a combined simulation device. Noah says that's correct, Shatyarn is somehow indeed suited to be the White Moon's administrator. The two moons were eventually supposed to fuse into the ultimate system; whichever moon one was supposed to completely absorb the moon it defeated. It would not just have been an integration of physical structure, either; it would have been an integration of the evolution of each of the moons' two philosophies, with the end result being much greater than either of the two moons alone. The final form would thus have been the perfect weapon to defend Eden from its enemies. As Forte comments, so that's what the Black Moon meant during the war when it said it was trying to fuse with the White Moon. But there was a complication, the White Moon forgot its mission and destroyed the Black Moon because of our heroes. Shiva gets upset, unable to believe that the White and Black moons were supposed to be one. Noah reminds Shiva that whether she believes it or not, it is the truth. Furthermore, since only the core of the Black Moon is left, even integrating it into the White Moon will not be enough now. So, the way to defeat the Supercarrier is already lost...but not necessarily, as Tact suddenly points out. Can't the two moons' philosophies work together? Noah says that's impossible, integration can only work by one completely subsuming the other! Tact says not necessarily; he doesn't mean physically combining the moons, but what about the moons working together? For example, couldn't the Black Moon's technology augment the White Moon's Chrono Break Cannon? It might be hard at first, but once they get to know each other, they could augment each other. Then Tact compares the situation to his own relationship with his chosen Angel: men and women live their lives thinking very differently, but when they put their hands together, they can listen to each other's heart...isn't that right, Tact's chosen Angel? At this point, depending on whose route the player is playing, Tact's chosen Angel gives an inspiring speech, which is slightly different depending on the Angel:

Milfeulle agrees with Tact. Eating delicious things together with Tact makes her happy. They can go to the amusement park and laugh together. And when Tact holds Milfeulle's hand, Milfeulle feels like she can do anything. So Noah shouldn't worry, Milfeulle's sure they can do it!

Ranpha says feelings are what's most important, such as the feeling of loving someone and the heart desiring to protect someone. "Reason" and "logic" are words that mean nothing in the face of love, because the feeling of love is stronger than all of them, and love has a lot to give such as the courage to face the enemy or the strength to beat them no matter how strong they are. That's how Ranpha and Tact fight, so it's going to be okay!

Mint says that when you can't read other people's hearts, they seem far, far away and completely out of reach. If you believe in them and wish to share your feelings, be brave and hold out your hand. Surely your heart will connect.

Forte remarks that the trouble's not going to stop now, which briefly troubles Tact, but Forte clarifies that isn't that interesting, though? Because people are different, they try to understand each other. Because people are different, they seek each other. And like that, they can believe in each other, combining their efforts to make a flower bloom...right, Chitose? Chitose says that's right, she was watched over by both Tact and Forte and was thus able to grow as a person. Forte says it's the same with the two moons, with their combined power, they can create something new.

Vanilla says that she and Tact are different, but because they are different, they can help each other. No, Vanilla believes they want to help each other.

Chitose mentions that when she first joined the Angel Wing, she was worried about a lot of things and couldn't get along with everybody else. She thought they were so different, they'd never get along. But now, thanks to Tact, Chitose and the rest of the Angel Wing can get along and be friends. Noah must not assume that getting along is impossible from the start; it's important that people try to understand each other.

Regardless of who Tact's chosen Angel is, Noah retorts that if it was that easy, there wouldn't be an issue. Tact still thinks it's worth a try; if they give up, they can't do anything, and then the situation would be completely hopeless. Isn't that right, Lady Shatyarn? Shatyarn agrees, and recalls a line of the poem: "Pure white. Uncertain, but infinite." Even if the future looks dark, if humans have hope in their hearts, they have unlimited potential. Shatyarn believes that. Noah says Shatyarn really is the White Moon, a dreamer with no grip on reality. How annoying. Shatyarn replies that people live because they have boundless hope for the future, isn't that right? Noah is silent, but before she can answer, Tact gets a message from Lester on the Elsior. It turns out that Nefuria has taken over the interstellar network and is broadcasting to everyone. Shiva agrees to have everyone connect to the interstellar network to to hear what Nefuria has to say.

Nefuria asks the "powerless humans" if they understand, she has no intention of destroying them. They can be used like tools. Do humans not use tools? It is the same for the Val-Fasc. Using machines or using organisms, that is the only difference. Tact sees that there is no redeeming Nefuria. Nefuria says that if the humans allowed a superior race to control their pathetic and weak lives, it would finally give their lives meaning. Those who wish to protest or act can do as they will, but they shouldn't forget that their toys cannot stop the O-Gaub. She closes the broadcast with villainous evil laughter.

Luft and Shiva both blame themselves for being powerless in the face of the enemy, and Noah tells them that blaming themselves is useless, the situation is not something they could've dealt with, and it's Noah's fault anyway. Noah becomes remorseful, realizing that Nefuria is using the Black Moon's production capabilities and the Negative Chrono Wave to kill the very humans that Noah should have protected. But Shatyarn tells Noah, Shiva, and Luft not to blame themselves, for it's better to plan for the future than to regret the past. So first, instead of repenting, they have to decide what to do. Isn't that right, Commander Mayers? Tact says that's right, they can only do what they are capable of doing. The rest of the Angels agree, they are still capable of fighting the enemy, and their mission is to protect those who cannot protect themselves. Noah is moved, realizing that this is the mission of the administrator of the moon. Noah finally decides to adopt Tact's plan to somehow find a way to fuse the technologies of the White and Black moons. Finally, Shiva also agrees to the plan. Don't be mistaken, Shiva has not forgotten what the Black Moon has done. However, Shiva's first mission as Empress is to protect the people of the Empire, and for that purpose Shiva will bow her head even to people she despises, no matter how she appears. Besides, the "Noah right now" is someone Shiva can entrust her hopes to. Noah finds this admirable of Shiva and agrees to help.

Then Luft gets a message that the enemy fleet has appeared in this system, so he sends the 18th fleet to intercept it. Tact and the Angels agree to come along with the fleet to intercept the enemy, since attacks will work on the regular ships aside from the supercarrier.

After the ensuing battle, Tact greets the Angels' return as usual, but has special praise for his chosen Angel, which turns into a flirting conversation causing the rest of the Angels to tease Tact and his chosen Angel.

Meanwhile, back on the O-Gaub, Nefuria realizes that the "advance force" has been wiped out, but that's okay, as it wouldn't be fun otherwise. Then the voice of a mysterious man speaks to Nefuria, asking why she's surprised to hear from him, is it the guilt in her heart? Nefuria says it would never be that, but they have not spoken directly in 100 years. The mysterious voice reminds Nefuria that more than enough time remains and she shouldn't get impatient. Her duty is to infiltrate the enemy, weaken them, and await the arrival of the Val-Fasc. Nefuria says she knows her duty. When the mysterious voice cuts off, Nefuria says to no one in particular to be arrogant while they can, as the O-Gaub has taken the power of the Black Moon and will have the power of the White Moon. We close out on Nefuria's villainous evil laughter.

Back on the White Moon, Noah chides everyone for being late, but then gets down to business. First, the enemy's Negative Chrono Field must be negated. Remember when the Black Moon first showed itself on Rhome and disabled the fleet and Emblem Frames? The Negative Chrono Field is what it used. It creates a local phenomenon like a twist in space-time that causes energy to metastasize. It's like a laser but with Chrono String energy, forced through Chrono Space, causing energy in our dimension to be destroyed, and the Angels are familiar with its effects. Nefuria has Negative Chrono Waves as a field surrounding her ship, like an eggshell. So the only way to beat the ship is to first strip it of its field by cancelling out those waves. How will they do that? If the field collides with a space-time wave of the opposite "phase", it will be nullified. Chitose understands that this means they need to produce a waveform that's the opposite "shape" of the Negative Chrono Wave, and when the two waves hit each other, the positive and negative waves will add up to "zero", and the Negative Chrono Field will be eliminated. The problem is that such a device needs to be attached to a weapon like a missle or something, and the hard part is breaking through the fleet to the ship itself (and the output of the field is no slouch either). It'll be difficult, but Tact insists that they'll do it, causing Noah to call them all carefree idiots, but Tact reminds Noah that now she is a carefree idiot, and Noah agrees that there must be a glitch in her mind if she's helping you people. Shiva and Luft use the opportunity of calling up weapons specialists from the Navy to move the defensive quarters to the White Moon, so now it's their defensive line, beat back the supercarrier! Tact fires up all the Angels, let's do this!

This ends chapter 5, unless Tact's chosen Angel is Chitose. If Tact's chosen Angel is anyone else, skip to the next chapter. If Tact's chosen Angel is Chitose, there's one more story segment after this, as the Elsior receives a guest on the bridge who is asking for Chitose. The guest turns out to be Lt. Commander Robert Hyuuga of the 18th fleet, who Chitose initially doesn't remember. After noting that Chitose has grown up, Hyuuga clarifies that he used to serve on a destroyer in the 7th Fleet, the Estrella. Chitose gasps in shock, apparently recognizing the name. Tact asks how Chitose knows that name, and Chitose notes ruefully that her late father was the captain of the Estrella. Hyuuga confirms that he is the man whose life Captain Karasuma saved. After being invited to Chitose's room for tea, Hyuuga confirms that the 18th Fleet he spoke of is the same 18th Fleet that has just helped wipe out the "advance force" in the last player battle. Suddenly, Hyuuga profusely apologizes. Captain Karasuma should be here; he should have watched Chitose grow up. He is here because her father saved him from the same accident that took his life. We get a brief flashback of a ship exploding as Hyuuga explains that Chitose's father made sure everyone evacuated while he stayed behind to try to stop as much of the damage as he could. He then discovered Hyuuga and saved him from the ship. Hyuuga says he should have forced the captain out at the last minute, but the captain said, "this is my duty", and the captain sacrificed his life to get Hyuuga out. Chitose says she didn't know, her father died carrying out his duty until the very end. After a moment of silence, Chitose leaves to refill Hyuuga's tea. Hyuuga speaks to Tact in private that Chitose has grown up well. Chitose doesn't remember, but Hyuuga was at her father's funeral. He was the one who gave her the stuffed animal. Chitose asked him when her father was coming home, not really understanding at that point that her father had died. All Hyuuga could do at the time was pat her head. Hyuuga is filled with regrets, because Captain Karasuma had previously told him that he was planning to give Chitose that stuffed animal for her birthday that year. Hyuuga then apologizes for telling Tact all that, but Tact says it's fine, now that Hyuuga has told him, the accident that took Chitose's father was truly a tragedy and Tact better understands Hyuuga's regrets and Chitose's grief. In fact, Tact is a little relieved, for Chitose's father lives on in her, as a remarkable man. Chitose became the person she is today because of her father, and she grew up well because she was always chasing after the image of him. Tact is proud of her. Hyuuga says that Tact is a bit like Captain Karasuma. So since her father is deceased, while it's not Hyuuga's place to ask, Tact should please take care of Chitose in her father's place. Tact promises to do his very best. Hyuuga finally leaves after Chitose returns with the tea, apologizing for taking up so much of their time. Hyuuga tells Chitose that since Chitose is on board the Elsior helping to defend against an unknown enemy, Hyuuga can truly believe that Chitose is part of the Angel Wing. So Chitose should please do her best. Chitose says yes, like her father, she wants to protect people's happiness. Hyuuga leaves after declining to be escorted to the shuttle, and Chitose says wistfully that like her father, she wishes to protect the people that are important to her, even if she...

We don't find out what Chitose is trailing off about until the next chapter, and thus we close on chapter 5.
