Kor Meteor is a young man living in a small village by the sea and training in the ways of the sword under his grandfather’s tutelage. To reward Kor for his progress, his grandfather bequeaths to him an unusual weapon known as a Soma, which can harness the power of a person’s Spiria—the embodiment of their heart and soul. Now a Somatic-in-training, Kor is eager to prove himself to his grandfather, and to lend aid to those in need. His first chance to do so appears when he meets a beautiful young woman named Kohaku Hearts. Kohaku and her brother Hisui are searching for a Soma weapon. Kor offers to help them, but their travels are abruptly cut short when a mysterious witch appears and casts a spell on Kohaku’s Spiria. Kor attempts to lift the spell by linking to Kohaku’s Spiria, but in the process he accidentally shatters her Spiria Core, the source of her emotions, and the shards scatter themselves across the world. Now, the trio must embark on a journey to find and restore each shard in order to make Kohaku’s Spiria Core whole once more.
Discover an entire world filled with interesting cities and lush continents to explore on your travels. Gorgeously animated cut-scenes convey Kor and Kohaku’s story as their journey progresses. Meet new allies along the way, each with unique abilities and colorful personalities. Enjoy beautiful anime-style character designs by Tales of veteran designer Mutsumi Inomata, as well as stunning art cut-ins featured in comical skits and heated battles that really bring the characters to life on your screen. Hone your skills in intense real-time aerial battles, and use the Aerial Chase Linear Motion Battle System to send foes flying, dash after them swiftly, and continue your offensive onslaught before they have a chance to retaliate. The whole world awaits you, if your Spiria and Soma are strong enough to challenge it.
