Truly, the “middle state.”

In the fictional country known as Kozan, a civil war has broken out between its inhabitants and a group of left-wingers trying to defeat its monarchy. Who’s doing it? A nasty terrorist group called SPASDOT (short for the Shintoist Province and Scarlet Devil of Team Crimson) is contributing to this. On a beautiful spring day, two recruits to the Kozanese Royal Defense Force, 14-year-olds Susumu Takajima and Kagami Ochiai, are sent out to destroy a base associated with this nasty group in Kozan’s capital city – Kozankyo. But that’s not going to be easy – dangerous bullet patterns lie ahead of you!

Meet the recruits

Susumu “Driller” Takajima

Birthdate: October 25, 1989
Blood Type: AB
Spiritual status: Half-youkai
Hobbies: Video games, programming, listening to music

If you’re a beginner and want to have some experience in the bullet patterns, The Real Driller may be your best bet! His Suspect Seekie will aim for you, albeit it only deals less damage to the enemy. His other weapon, Dragon’s Beam, is the exact same power as his regular weapon, but is a little slower.

He began his career as a programmer, who once tried to join SPASDOT, but was arrested for attempting to promote terrorism. He was released after he pleaded guilty and decided to cooperate with the Kozanese Royal Defense Force as part of his plea. His goal: find and defeat Hearthcliffe.

Kagami Ochiai

Birthdate: December 21, 1989
Blood type: O
Spiritual status: Pure youkai
Hobbies: Singing, meeting fans

Wanting to expect a more stiff challenge? Princess Kagami will aid you! Her Cherry Bob-omb explodes and extracts fragments upon impact. If you want the damage to go up to eleven, then the Atmosphere Laser does it well, but it’s the slowest of all the weapons. She teams up with Driller to destroy the SPASDOT stronghold in Kozankyo.

Legends say she is a princess, despite not coming from any royal blood! Actually, she descended from the daimyos (feudal lords in Japan) and her grandparents still run a daimyo family in Kozan. Looking at her, she is a pop idol sensation, resembling a costumed magical girl (her hairstyle does it well).
