    Episode 1

    She's gone into the sky.

    Koharu has found herself on a floating ship, and she couldn't remember her name until falling into the lake. Everybody has special powers in this place, and wars are being fought seeing that somebody is attacking there at the end. Not a bad start seeing that it was adapted from an otoge, which is generally a bad thing mainly because the MC is some helpless girl lacking in common sense, but it looks like Koharu isn't that type of person even though she had to be saved by Kakeru when she fell. It was pretty much all setup here, and the atmosphere and setting are interesting. But let's see how the next episode builds on this and how Senri's warning factors into this.

      Well, this otoge actually seems to have 3 "MC's" though Koharu feels more like the usual one than the other two. I wonder if there are many otoge protags like Nanami. Seems an unusual type for the genre. Nice to vary things up, though. I assume the others will get some decent focus too with their particular "teams".

        See, this is something that I could imagine being better as a visual novel (not good, mind you) but with a lousy adaptation to push it down to the level that I'd be worried about from that realm.

          Episode 2

          Keep the peach within reach.

          Those enemies came to bring down the ship, but Koharu protected the core with her special power. But while the ship is still floating, the peach tree got burned to a crisp in the process and she plants a new one. So pretty much here, Koharu's power is revealed in the form of a shield, and now mysterious are starting to pop up about what the Norn is all about seeing that a boy from the future ended up on the shop where it is 1919. Well, I'll give it one more episode seeing that I'm interested in at least knowing about the boy's situation.
