Many centuries ago Edit
The game begins with two figures clashing : Haruka of the Crescent Moons and Kikyou-Dayu the Red Guardian of the Tetra Sealers. The former quickly gets the upper-hand, and slays Kikyou with one powerful attack despite her enemy's persistence. After the battle, Subaru catches up to Haruka and the two Blades proceed to the Seiryu castle. However, they are stopped by Orochimaru the Blue Guardian, who had stolen the Time Leap Bell of the Crescent Moons and brought it back to the Noroi Faction headquarters. Subaru and Orochimaru then start clashing and though Orochimaru is powerful, it quickly grows obvious that the Blade has the upper hand. However, as the bell sounds and the castle was suddenly surrounded by flames, Ittou Hagane, the White Guardian, intervened. He covers Orochimaru's retreat then in one powerful slash cuts off Subaru's right arm. As she lays wounded, Subaru tells Haruka to sneak into the castle so she can follow the Noroi Faction in their time leap, before fighting Ittou once more to buy her time.
In the present day Edit
Our hero Takamaru is trying to convince his latest crush, a girl called Saginomiya to go on a date with him. However, because of Narika Shihoudou's efforts, she knows all about his computer's massive stored amount of porn and turns him down. Dejected, Takamaru wanders near the gym where he sees a huge crowd gathered around it. Curiosity brings him closer as well, and allows him to see a beautiful woman dancing gracefully in a leotard. He instantly falls for her, but his daydreaming is cut short by a scream : a man is standing on a building on the verge of suicide.Without hesitation, Takamaru runs to the top and tries to convince the man to reconsider. As he seems to have succeeded, an odd voice resounds and the man leaps off. Takamaru barely reaches him in time and holds him up, before his vision fades to black. He wakes up in the infirmary with the rescued man from earlier in the next bed, and the woman from earlier looking over him. She introduces herself as Haruka Takamori and appears to already know of him somehow, though she was surprised and pleasantly surprised by the selflesness of his rescue.
After Haruka's departure, Akira Kurogane enters the room and mentions that Haruka despite only arriving a week ago has already attracted much male attention. A love-struck Takamaru however mostly ignores her and rushes out of the room. Haruka then reappears from her hiding spot and discusses with Arika how the Noroi faction had controlled the suicidal man and will probably strike this very night.
Later in the dojo, Takamaru talks with Narika about his crush while she not-so-subtly tries to go on a date with him. They are interrupted by Narika's father Seigen who mentions to Narika that Noroi should soon appear and that their previous plan has shifted a bit. Seigen then introduces his new assistant instructor Haruka who quickly ends up sparring first Takamaru, then Narika and beating them both.
As Takamaru and Narika walk back home, they are surrounded by mysterious creatures called Genin. Though the two of them put up a good fight, the creatures seem to be completely impervious to harm. Just as they are getting overrun however, Haruka appears and quickly tells them about Noroi and their time leap before Orochimaru himself intrudes, intent on kidnapping Takamaru and using him to restore Noroi to full power. Haruka tries to hold him off but is quickly overpowered, though she manages to retreat thanks to Takamaru and Seigen's intervention. As both her and Takamaru head to an alley, she tells him of the Dragonian's rôle in giving power to the Blades and then asks if he could have Dragon Synergy with her (sex) in order to regain her strength. Though initially shocked, he quickly complies out of both worry for the others and lust. Haruka then faces Orochimaru once more on a much more even footing, but before their fight can finish, Ensai Mukurou the Black Guardian with Ittou and an army of genins by his side arrives to finish the job himself. As he is about to kidnap the Dragonian, Akira appears and activates a powerful seal : this seal had been prepared for centuries and designed to bring intense pain to all those who were granted power by Noroi. Overwhelmed by the pain, the Noroi Faction is forced to retreat, but manages to kidnap Seigen and many Crescent moon ninjas as they do so and projects his head onto the night, threatening the city and its inhabitants.
Main Route Edit
The first Tetra Castle Edit
Following all those events, Akira decided to welcome all of them into her home to better coordinate their efforts, with her becoming the new leader of the Anti-Noroi Task force following Seigen's disappearance. Soon after, Takamaru and Haruka start doing regular Dragon Synergy, and Haruka tells her about Subaru's kidnapping, as Orochimaru mentioned she was still alive at their base. Meanwhile, Ensai decides to start sending a few genins to spread terror in the city to reinforce Noroi's power until the seal weakens. Narika starts feeling helpless in the fanfare of activity, telling Takamaru how she was meant to be the Blade fighting at his side, when they are summoned to the Crescent Moon headquarters. Haruka is sent out to fight her first genin, giving herself a « super-hero » appearance to give hope to the city and therefore minimize Noroi's power. Witnessing genin fall one after another to Haruka's power, Ensai starts sending their weaker Kainin in the hopes of stopping the Blade, but those are soon outmatched. However, Haruka's constant battles soon take their toll and she falls sick. As a genin grows closer to causing a major disaster Narika volunteers to take up Haruka's mission and becomes a Blade herself after sleeping with Takamaru. As the Blades only grow stronger Ensai sends Orochimaru and his Tetra castle to the city in order to quicken Noroi's revival while he tries to replenish their ranks. Though the seal is still active, Orochimaru is protected from its effects by a Mark of the Outside. Soon after the Castle's appearance however, the two blades invade it and manage to defeat Orochimaru.
Subaru's return Edit
As the castle disappears and the Blades apprehend Orochimaru, he is stabbed in the back by shurikens thrown by none other than Subaru, dressed in red with a new arm and an odd expression. Though Haruka is overjoyed, Orochimaru warns that she is infected with Noroi's power which Subaru herself confirms, blaming Haruka for her imprisonment and ensuing rapes. A grief-stricken Haruka despite herself retreats with Narika and Orochimaru in tow, and swears to herself that she shall return Subaru to their side. Though Arika wanted to torture Orochimaru to extract information, Takamaru decides against it and starts sympathizing with the Tetra Sealer. Haruka confronts Subaru once more as she is causing panic, but finds herself defeated by her old ally and is raped in front of a local news team. Subaru then takes refuge in a Tetra Castle, Byakkou, which belongs to Ittou. As Orochimaru grows slowly attached to the Blades, he mentions the oddity of this, as Kikyou-Dayu's castle is available following her death. He even mentions that when confronting Subaru, they should take out her Mark of the Outside. The Blades attack the new Castle and beat Subaru but are shocked to find that extracting the Mark had no effect. Orochimaru then contacts them and tells them to cut off her new arm. Haruka manages to cut it in a single slice, which causes Subaru to writhe in agony before fainting.
The Red Ghost Edit
As the castle disappears, the arm slithers away before taking the form of Kikyou-Dayu herself, partially resurrected by Noroi's power. As it turns out, she had been possessing Subaru all along as revenge on the Blades. She mocks the band before retreating to her own castle, Suzaku, and taunts them by saying that she has Seigen and his ninjas. As the Blades prepare the attack on the new castle, Kikyou uses the captured ninjas for sex to give energy to her undead body; as the Blades depart, Orochimaru remarks that Kikyou usually has cruel tactics and probably will be planning something. He turned out to be correct: though the Blades manage to defeat her in battle and grab her Mark of the Outside, she had also used her sessions with the ninjas to infect them with her flesh, making them slaves to her will. As Narika and the others cannot bring themselves to attack Seigen, they are soon driven into a corner until suddenly Kikyou's puppets all become encased in ice as Subaru makes her appearance. An enraged Kikyou tries to attack her, but Subaru freezes her as well and splits her in half. In her dying ghasp, Kikyou spits blood on her killer before dying once more as the castle disappears.
Time to Train Edit
Subaru introduces herself to the rest of the cast, but on the days following Kikyou-Dayu's defeat she starts a brutal training regiment on Takamaru, before taking it upon herself to regulate Haruka and Narika's diet as well. Takamaru quickly realises however that her harshness is only due to frustation at her own failures, and goes along with her training. However, he soon starts having a fever and is stuck in bed, and as Haruka starts calling out Subaru for her attitude, the Blades are called to the base as a genin has been spotted attacking the city. As it is not dangerous by its lonesome, Akira decides to just observe it for now, but a frustrated Subaru calls them cowards and heads out by herself. As the genin flees and Subaru barely manages to keep up, she is led into a trap surrounded by chunin and genin. As Subaru readies herself for a last stand, the other Blades arrive and after Subaru apologizes, they slay the genins together, and Subaru starts accepting Takamaru and the others and becomes an official Blade (after H)
Back at the hall of Infinity, Ittou decides to go to the city to find and destroy the seal once despite its harmful effects. As he starts slashing at the seal's keystone the Blades intervene, but even a weakened Ittou manages to defeat them. The Blades start despairing, but Akira has a plan. Soon, Takamaru's father Shuichi Ikusabe arrives and organises a special training where the Blades face an illusion of Ittou based on their memories. After rallying together with some advice from Takamaru the Blades manage to defeat the illusion and Takamaru decides to go with them on their next fight. Though the Blades fare much better and almost manage to defeat him, Ensai sends him all the energy Noroi can spare so Ensai can apprehend Takamaru. A boosted Ensai then managed to repeatedly beat down the Blades, but as he gets closer to the Dragonian and he panics when seeing the Blades in danger, a flash of light appears with Ensai suddenly drained of all of Noroi's power, making all his wounds reappear and causing him to collapse. He is brought back to their base where Takamaru reproaches him from for thinking hatred would save anyone.
Having lost all of his closest allies, Ensai wanders alone the Hall of Infinity thinking that their plans have all crumbled. However, he hears Kikyou-Dayu's voice telling him about her one last trick, and Ensai laughs.
Meanwhile, Akira tells Takamaru that he ought to consider proposing to one of the Blades. As she says, their power was boosted by his presence and belief in them, and a statement of true love might bring a Blade's power to new levels altogether. As Takamaru lies in bed considering this, he eventually comes to a decision.
Route Splits Edit
The decision Takamaru takes is the game's route split and partially determines the ending.
Love Route (Harika, Narika, Harem) Edit
As he lies in bed, he realises that he deeply loves (Haruka/Narika/everyone) and he proposes to his love. A few days later as the Blades begin their invasion of Genbu Castle, Takamaru falls upon Subaru in a odd state of pure lust during the night and sleeps with her until she seems satiated. Ready to finish the fight once and for all, the Blades then reach the last floor of the Castle and face Ensai. After a grueling battle, Ensai finally lies defeated and Akira instructs the team to find and slay the weakened Noroi with Ensai indicating to them the entrance to Castle Infinity. But as Subaru starts feeling sick once more, Haruka and Narika go ahead while Subaru stays and guards Ensai. However as he tells her of how he founded the Noroi Faction, Subaru grows weaker and finally collapses. A grinning Ensai reveals that her states of euphoria are a curse left by Kikyou-Dayu, and he gleefully extracts the Dragonian's sperm while holding the weakened weasel form of Noroi. By the time the other two Blades return Noroi lives once more, now possessing Takamaru's form, beats the Blades and starts trying to absorb their life force. Distressed, Takamaru rushes into the teleporter to help the Blades and rushes into Noroi. To everyone's surprise his punch sends Noroi reeling and allows enough time for everyone to flee. As they reconvene to the Crescent Moon Village to discuss their plan of attack Shuichi Ikusabe tells of them the legend of the Beat Blade, where a Dragonian goes through a trial to unlock even greater power. Shuichi decides to do the Inner Heaven ceremony himself, but tragically fails and lies unconscious the next day. However as the new leader of the Crescent Moons Takamaru decides to take the challenge himself. After a heartfelt sendoff with his love, he dives into the cave and soon encounters a mysterious being made of light: This creature explains that it has been the source of the Dragonian's power for generations, and is the other half of Noroi himself as both were once one being coming from another world after it was destroyed by humans. Meanwhile outside of the cave, powerful creatures made directly from Noroi's power the Jukas attack the camp and overwhelm the Blades, until suddenly Takamaru's fiancee surges with power and transforms into the Beat Blade before quickly dispatching the Jukas. The Dragonian then emerges from the cave and rallies the Crescent Moons before attacking Castle Infinity. They face Ensai once more with Takamaru finally revealing to him Noroi's true intentions: to wipe out every human in the world but the Tetra Sealer refuses to believe him. They eventually reach Noroi himself who then turns into his monstrous true form, but with the power of the Beat Blade even this is defeated. Noroi curses at his other half, but Takamaru points out that all this time it was not his half that was stopping him and finding a better way but the very humans he despised so much. Mournful of his actions, Noroi uses the last of his fading power to repair as much damage as possible before disappearing forever.
And the Battle Rages On (Haruka, Narika) Edit
Six months later, Takamaru is still with his fiancee, now only sleeping wtih her, and about to graduate with the team still dealing with the occasional crook.
Haruka True Love Edit
A year later, the Tetra Sealers are now working with the Crescent Moons and Haruka and Takamaru have now been married. They also had a baby girl just two months ago, with Takamaru supporting them with a day job while at night still acting as the master of the Crescent Moons (though only lightly touching the other Blades). As he sleeps with Haruka, he decides to have another child.
Narika True Love Edit
A year later, Narika and Takamaru are about to be married. Though Narika hadn't had the chance to graduate it yet, they decided for it since Takamaru had since gained a job and she was already pregnant. As the two make love with her in her wedding dress, they rehearse their wedding vows.
Subaru Route Edit
As Takamaru can't seem to decide between Haruka and Narika, he eventually confesses to Subaru that over the short time they've known each other, he has come to love her. Though Subaru is hesitant to accept his feelings due to her not used to the modern world and lacking an arm, he tells her that those do not matter. A few days later as the Blades begin their invasion of Genbu Castle, Takamaru falls upon Subaru in an odd state of pure lust. As she calls for passion, he instead helps her by holding her throughout the night. Ready to finish the fight once and for all, the Blades then reach the last floor of Genbu Castle and face Ensai. After a grueling battle, Ensai finally lies defeated and Akira instructs the team to find and slay the weakened Noroi with Ensai indicating to them the entrance of Castle Infinity. But as Subaru starts feeling sick once more, Haruka and Narika go ahead while Subaru stays behind to guard Ensai. However as he tells her the tale of how he founded the Noroi Faction, Subaru grows weaker and eventually collapses. A grinning Ensai reveals that her state of euphoria is a curse left by Kikyou-Dayu and that the semen the Dragonian must have left while helping her will be used to revive Noroi. At this, Subaru laughs as Ensai discovers that there is not nearly enough for Noroi to be awakened, but as Noroi's time grows short Ensai decides to hide his weasel form inside Subaru herself. When Haruka and Narika return they discover that Subaru is possessed by Noroi who brutally attacks and captures them. As Akira reveals that Subaru's energy cannot sustain Noroi for more than a few hours, Subaru/Noroi sends a message to the Crescent Moons stating that she will kill the two Blades if the Dragonian does not surrender himself to her in the next few hours. Akira tries to convince Takamaru to just let Noroi die off, but as this would mean the deaths of all three Blades, he instead devises a plan. In a few hours, Takamaru meets with the possessed Subaru as promised and the weasel quickly leaves Subaru's body to burrow inside Takamaru. Before the possession can begin however, the Crescent Moons's trap activates and traps Noroi inside. Takamaru then tells a liberated Subaru that she must stab Noroi while she still can, right at where he is located. Despite Subaru's fear and Noroi's proximity to his heart, Subaru manages to stab and kill Noroi while barely missing any vital organs. A smiling Takamaru then collapses.
A few months later, Takamaru and Subaru are now on an honeymoon after their marriage with Subaru having mostly recovered from his dangerous injury and profess their love to each other.
Brutal Route (Harika, Narika) Edit
As Takamaru lies in bed, he recalls the sadistic thrills he had from watching the Blades suffer defeat, and the even greater joy he had gotten from punishing them for their incompetence. The voice who had egged him on during those sessions spoke to him again ; as a husband and master, he could do anything to his toy. Anything at all.
Haruka Brutal Edit
Takamaru then calls on Haruka and professes his love to her. She hesitates, calling herself not good enough as he'd be happier with a girl from his time like Narika. In response, Takamaru orders her to marry him, to which she meekly complies. He then gives her a little test where she has to wait naked in the men's bathroom and sleep with the first man that arrives. As the days pass Takamaru subjects her to all sorts of perverse situations, to which she all dutifully obeys. Meanwhile Ensai looks forward to his deception with Subaru, but Noroi tells him that they now have no need of such parlour tricks as his other half is awakening.

Meanwhile Ensai looks forward to his deception with Subaru, but Noroi tells him that they now have no need of such parlour tricks as his other half is awakening. On that same evening, Takamaru hears the voice once more, telling him to accept him in his heart...
Haruka Black Awakening Edit
Ensai falters against the Blades, but as they ask for the path to Castle Infinity, Ensai stays silent. Suddenly, a vast amount of power flows into Ensai. The Blades soon realise that Noroi has somehow regained his strength despite their efforts and the reinvigorated Ensai slays Subaru before leaving, while Takamaru only smiles watching the scene unfold. Half a year later, the fight against the Noroi Faction has grown desperate, and with the loss of Narika, the only Blade remaining is Haruka herself. After repeated losses and as public dismay was growing, an "apology service" was created, which involves Haruka being raped by lottery winners who are mostly victims of the Noroi faction's attacks. However, months of insults and abuse from the "poor victims" who did nothing to actually help her made Haruka increasingly bitter about the Crescent Moons's mission. When she admits those feeling to Takamaru, he agrees and they decide to join the Noroi Faction. Of course, Noroi's revival and the apology service were all organised by Takamaru in order to corrupt Haruka, and she soon becomes a Dark Blade, gleefully killing innocents and guilty alike as she eerily laugh, while Takamaru and Noroi become one.
Haruka Eternal Black Love Edit
As the Blades get closer to Ensai, Takamaru makes an odd comment about a surprise waiting for them. They manage to defeat Ensai, however his apparent loss is but a feint, as he suddenly revives and stabs Subaru who falls dead to the ground. Back at headquarters, Takamaru pushes Arika out of the way and uses the teleporter to reach the castle, and as he enters Ensai introduces him as Noroi reborn. Takamaru reveals that his sadistic sex acts helped lead to his corruption and calls Haruka to his side. However, even as she admits she still loves him, she declares that she cannot forgive him for this betrayal and remains by the other Blades. Takamaru and Ensai then depart as the castle crumbles. Half a year later, the Crescent Moons are still fighting Noroi even as Haruka is now heavily pregnant with Takamaru's child. Though Haruka desperately tries to defeat Noroi, he only ever defeats her time and time again, raping her everytime as he claims his love for her. Haruka swears that her and her child will forever will hunt him forever, but Noroi only laughs and revels in his love and lust.
Narika Brutal Edit
Takamaru then calls on Narika and professes his love to her, proposing to her. However, though Narika is overjoyed, her thrill is short-lived as Takamaru tells her that he will show his love in odd and downright violent ways. Narika hesitates at this to which Takamaru sighs before saying that Haruka would have to do. Unwilling to let him go, Narika agrees to the odd proposal even when Takamaru decides to put her to a little « test » first, which involves finding a random stranger and having sex with him. Narika tries to retreat at the last minute but is raped anyway and with this finds herself fully in Takamaru's clutches, as he demands more and more perverse things from her. Narika inexorably starts enjoying their brutal escapades, but as the fight against Ensai grows nearer, Takamaru calls her and says that though he'll keep it secret for now, their bretothal is off as he has grown bored with her, leaving Narika in tears. Meanwhile Ensai looks forward to his deception with Subaru, but Noroi tells him that they now have no need of such parlour tricks as his other half is awakening. On that same evening, Takamaru hears the voice once more, telling him to accept him in his heart...
Narika Black Awakening Edit
Ensai falters against the power of the Blades, but as they start asking for the way to Castle Infinity, Ensai tells them they need not bother as the withered husk of Noroi is with him. Despite this Ensai laughs, stating that soon Noroi's other half shall awaken and finish their glorious work. With this Ensai pulls on the blade in his body and dies. Though the Crescent Moons are perplexed at his words, the entire team decides to celebrate their victory with drinks and Narika's cooking. As Takamaru gets up ready to announce the break of their bretothal, his vision becomes blurry and he collapses to the ground. He wakes up to complete silence and starts wandering the building looking for the others. When he starts hearing Narika's voice, he re-enters the party room and comes across a vision of horror : Narika is standing over the dead body of Haruka and the others hacked to pieces. A smiling Narika tells him that now all of his other toys are dead, and he has to be with her forever. As a dark passion wells up within him for yandere Narika, he realises the meaning of Ensai's words.
Narika Eternal Black Love Edit
As the Blades get closer to Ensai, Takamaru makes an odd comment about a surprise waiting for them. They manage to defeat Ensai, however his apparent loss is but a feint, as he suddenly revives and laughs. Back at headquarters, Takamaru pushes Arika out of the way and uses the teleporter to reach the castle, and as he enters Ensai introduces him as Noroi whole once more. Takamaru reveals that his sadistic sex acts helped lead to his corruption and calls Narika to his side, who with a look of love mixed with resignation complies before stabbing Subaru dead. Takamaru, Ensai and Narika then depart leaving behind a grieving Haruka. Half a year later, the Crescent Moons are still fighting the Noroi faction, but their fight grows slowly more desperate. Haruka is their greatest asset as a Blade being now powered by Shuichu, but she has already been defeated and raped many times by Noroi's top enforcer, the Dark Blade Narika. As Narika sleeps with Takamaru and recounts her latest fight with Haruka, a single tear slides down the new Noroi's face. As Narika comments on him apparently having one last trace of humanity left, she pledges her love saying that no matter how low he falls, she will fall with him.
