"In the name of all video games, we shall defeat you~!" --- The bustling metropolis of Yamashima was not always the epicenter of technological advances. Just about two decades ago, it was a simple fisherman town situated along the coast of Japan. That all changed when two men decided to make the unassuming town their home base for what would become the most successful video game development company in recent history. In the span of a few short years, the two men would continuously move the company's headquarters to a bigger and bigger space until they were forced to make a skyscraper right in the middle of Yamashima. All the new employees brought along their families, which in turn brought along new businesses to Yamashima. Twenty years later, the city itself has boomed into a large city where remnants of it's old roots are rare to find. Yet, there is one relic of Yamashima's old fishing routes right in the heart of the city. A large statue of a seahorse created by one of Yamashima's most famous residents stands in the middle of Shihosu Square and also gives it's name to said square. It is not only a popular tourist attraction but an area where every resident of Yamashima will pass at least once a day since it is close to a few major train stations. It is here where Tatsuo Shiroguchi has decided to try his luck finding the so-called 'heroes of legend'. Ever since the appearance of the Woman in White a week ago, he had been plagued with visions that depicted both past and future events. So far, three of his destructive visions have come to past and if he delayed any longer, Yamashima would be in ruins by the end of the month. Still, from what Tatsuo could see from the crowds of people, barely anyone has paid much mind to the attacks. Who could blame them? The attacks predominantly destroyed buildings and the few victims only had minor injuries. But the brown-haired man knew they would get worse if no one intervened. Digging into his satchel, he thumbed the smooth texture of the CDs he was given. He didn't know what he was to do with them and had tried placing them in every type of gaming console and computer he could find. And each time, nothing came up. Not a file or a code; nothing. That's when he thought of a crazy idea that these CDs would lead to the heroes. There were five CDs in all and the Woman said there were five heroes. It wouldn't hurt trying to see if the CDs would react if any of the heroes came close enough. --- Kyoko was butt-tired and she had already taken two naps today; one during her lunch break and one during her afternoon class. Yet here she was, still yawning and trying to rub her eyes free of any gunk that remained. Even from a good few feet away, the bags under her eyes were visible and her lackadaisical attitude was apparent in the way she dressed and walked. Her uniform was wrinkled and had obviously been worn already thanks to the large stain next to the scarf. Her socks didn't match either and her shoes had seen better days yet Kyoko paid no mind to the stares she got as she crossed Shihosu Square towards Noraki Station. She wanted to get on the next train as soon as possible so she wouldn't miss her show but the scent of yakisoba noodles suddenly drifted under her nose, making the brunette turn around and find the stand selling them. She could catch up on her show online tomorrow, right now she needed something to fill her empty stomach.
