  1. Spoilers:
    Abnormally advanced technological advancements have improved life on Earth through the work of the YMT Corporation making convenient APPs. APPs look identical to features in PSO2.
    YMT Corporation = Yamato = Name was given based on admiration for the battleship Yamato and to the people of Yamato aka Japanese. (Nods to the Musashi distinction)

    YMT president is a weapon and history geek. Specifically he is obsessed with BB Yamato.

    I can see where this is going and the overall future plot of the story.

    1. Sshh, if you spoil them before the new story translation patch out they can’t make baseless assumption again!

  2. About character/enemy contest…. Persona is a cheater! xD
    Receive 2 votes per day from male and female category.

    I hope this time peoples vote to a chance of a cute little mag Dragon, i can vote to vol dragon and quartz dragon. Using a bit more of imagination, is same possible sega maybe create a pet based on boss winner.

    1. Well s/he’s already canonically cheating with time-travel shenaningans so comes with the territory I guess…?
      Arguably that accusation can be leveled against [Double] as well, depending on how you look at them/it – though in practical terms the twins are literally mirror images anyway…

  3. So, it seems we ned a VPN to download The World End Eclipse on PC? I don’t think anyone would be kind enough to extract the apk and upload it somewhere?
