Kōun The city of Kōun has stood here for fifty long years, modernizing as time went on, and growing constantly. It's a bustling city with small cars and large buildings. Though strangely enough, only 1/4th of the population lives here. Most of them live in a small, less crowded town by the name of Kisaragi. They aren't that far apart and are connected by a small bridge that can rise and lower itself. Despite this, most of the town relies on Kōun for employment. The town does have it's own businesses, shops, and restaurants. They are home to the only school between them and the city, New Heights Academy. It's the largest building in the town, standing at four stories high and is one of the most prestigious schools in the entire country. New Heights Academy The school itself is a product of the U.K and Japan both deciding to create a school that would teach the culture and the language of both the countries. Japanese students would learn about the English culture and their language, while the English students would learn about the Japanese culture and their language. Though they would still be taught other subjects like Math, Science, and History. What's most interesting about the school is how it goes all the way from kindergarten to high school, this is to promote an easygoing environment where the students would never be separated from their friends and the amount of stress and depression would stay at a low level.

Over it is a broadsword and a katana clashing. Technology The year is 2018 and technology is getting more advanced as time goes on, even as much that virtual reality has been created. The World is a massively multiplayer online game in a Fantasy world where they fight monsters and explore new areas by using sword and shield, magic, or even a bow and arrow. The developers say there's still much more for the players to explore in the world they've created, and far more to come. Rules - Romance is allowed, though not mandatory.
