There were just five of us when we first started developing rockets. We didn't have enough money, equipment, or knowledge. Everyone told us we would fail, but I...

We... didn't give up. None of us.

We lived on Amanoshima, an island far to the south of mainland Japan and the location of a large aerospace program. Our school, Amanoshima Academy, had a prestigious aerospace curriculum and students from all over the nation attended it, eyes set on being a part of the next generation of rocket scientists.

"Hey. Want to make rockets with us?"

That was why I was so surprised when asked me to join her. I was enrolled in the normal curriculum, not aerospace, and nobody ever doubted the fact that I was an idiot. But when I looked into her eyes, I saw how sincere she was... and it shook me.

Finally, I decided to join the small rocket club she was the president of: Byakko.

"You won't make rockets at Byakko."

The one who told me that was Reimei Kaho, vice-president of the largest and most illustrious rocket club of the many at our school: the ARC. She had come to notify us that we had been dissolved.

There was only one way to stave off our own abolition. We had to win a rocket competition before the beginning of the second term. There were five of us. Arisa. Me.

"We can make rockets at Byakko too."

Ibuki Nazuna, who loved rockets like nobody else.

"I want to be in your club."

Michibiki Honoka, my childhood friend who loved to play tricks on others.

And, finally, Kaho, who had made so much trouble for us initially. Together we tackled rocket science.

We had to win a competition if we wanted our club to endure. And, even more than that, we wanted to launch a rocket that our own hands had built and see it soar toward space.

The Karman line: 100km of altitude.

Higher than the clear sky.

We worked hard and chased our dreams to the edge of space.

Arisa is so crazy about rockets that she’ll do anything to get them launched. In front of strangers she’s polite and friendly, but her real personality is violent and strict, especially toward the protagonist. However, this is merely a reflection of how much she cares about him; she’s just not all that open about her feelings. She can also be surprised to show a weaker, cuter side of herself. Kaho and Arisa often have conflicting opinions and spar verbally.

Nazuna is an airhead who loves rockets, burning things, and is loaded. Much of what she says sounds crazy to other people and she has trouble holding conversations, but it all makes sense if you listen carefully and get on her wavelength. Her father is AXIP’s chairman of the board and she’s been in contact with rockets since she was very small. This makes her a very capable rocket scientist, especially in the field of propellants. She’s been friends with Arisa since they were small children.

Honoka is amiable, full of curiosity, and always ready to play a prank on someone. Everyone gets along with her. She’s the protagonist’s childhood friend and they were recently reunited after not having seen each other for a year. Her pranks can be of a very provocative nature and the protagonist finds it difficult not to get carried along. Her family owns a workshop that manufactures a variety of rocket parts. She’s extremely talented in her father’s line of work, which requires high dexterity and skill, but does nothing productive with her abilities.

Kaho is considerate of others and rarely shows much emotion, but she’s also gentle and honest. She doesn’t talk much, but any topic related to rockets can loosen her tongue. She tries to rely on others as little as possible, but it seems that she has taken a liking to the protagonist. An event in her past damaged her eyes and she can only read from a few centimeters away. Still, she prefers to wear glasses only when she works.
