Days filled with laughter.
Living without the faintest shadow of unease, their lives suddenly change for the worse.
One rainy day...
Keika visits a room and witnesses the dead and cold body of the feudal lord.
"The death of the feudal lord."
That very event turned the tides of not just Keika's fate, but the fates of everyone around her.
Working alongside her partners, Keika begins to investigate... but what truths await her in the end?
