Chief Librarian's Request 1

Chief Librarian icon.png

Ah, so you came.

Chief Librarian icon.png

I've got an urgent request for you. Let me explain shortly.

Chief Librarian icon.png

This book got delivered to me. There's no sender's name.
Choice 1
This is...?
Choice 2
What book is it?


Chief Librarian icon.png

That's... Sorry, but I don't know the details.
I think it's some kind of an alchemy book, but... it's sealed.

Chief Librarian icon.png

We won't know the book's true form unless we have you guys delve into it.
There might be something more beside taints inside it. Be really careful with the investigation.

Chief Librarian icon.png

As for who will delve, I'm leaving that up to you to decide. If anything comes up, turn to Aka and Ao for help.
I must go call Cat immediately... I'm counting on you.


Chief Librarian's Request 2

Tayama Katai icon.png

And so we got chosen, huh.

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

A book sealed with alchemy... I'd say there is something more to this.

Tayama Katai icon.png

It's all good, Touson! Not knowing what's going on means it's worth the effort to go get information.

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

That may be so, but... We are delving into this book?
It's pure white and there's nothing written inside... But there's stains that seem like as if ink has been spilled here and there.

Tayama Katai icon.png

... It sure is weird that nothing's written inside. Can we really delve into a book that seems to have no content?

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

Well, let's just try it.
Choice 1
Take care.
Choice 2
Try your best.


Shimazaki Touson icon.png

Yes. If it's about gathering information, leave that to us.

Tayama Katai icon.png

It's our specialty after all!

Faust hooded icon.png

So they are writers... Let's see how they will face those vexing mimeses.


Chapter 1, Paragraph 1

Tayama Katai icon.png

W-what's this place... It's all bloody!

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

Nuh-uh, look closer, Katai. This is paint.

Tayama Katai icon.png

Uwah, I got it on my hand... You're right, it's paint.

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

Your power of observation is lacking, Katai.

Concealed Guardian No 0 icon.png

Concealed Guardian No 0 icon.png

Hoot hoot

Tayama Katai icon.png

What's this guy!?

Concealed Guardian No 0 icon.png

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

Hey, who are you? You aren't a taint, are you?

Concealed Guardian No 0 icon.png

Hoot!

Concealed Guardian No 0 icon.png

Tayama Katai icon.png

Uwah, stop it!


Chapter 1, Paragraph 2

Concealed Guardian No 0 icon.png

Tayama Katai icon.png

That scared me...
What the heck was that. It wasn't a taint?

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

I think it's different. I wonder what, indeed.

Tayama Katai icon.png

This is an unexpected development right from the beginning.
We didn't know anything when we saw the book from outside.

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

Yes... But this place is weird, however, I think it's the book's world after all.

Tayama Katai icon.png

Aaaaaaaaaaah!

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

What's wrong, Katai? Suddenly screaming like that.

Tayama Katai icon.png

Is it, is it by any chance, that!?

Tayama Katai icon.png

Isn't it that? "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland".

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

What kind of work is it?

Tayama Katai icon.png

An English story of a girl who wanders into a wonderland.
After she's wandered in, there appears a castle with roses painted red.

Tayama Katai icon.png

Who was the author again... Hmmmmh...

Tayama Katai icon.png

No luck, I can't remember.

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

Your forgetfulness is terrible, despite the fact that you ate fish eyeballs yesterday...

Tayama Katai icon.png

Shut up! Anyways, this is an investigation, so let's get going!


Chapter 1, Paragraph 3

Tayama Katai icon.png

I get that this is "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland", but what the heck were those guys?
They don't exist in the original story!

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

Ah, there's one we recognize.

Writer's Block No 0 icon.png

Tayama Katai icon.png

Taints! So you're here too.

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

Meeting the usual people in a completely different place than usual is actually a relief. Let's defeat it quickly.


Chapter 1, Paragraph 4

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

So the fact that there are taints here means the book is being tainted after all.

Tayama Katai icon.png

It's certainly a wonderland. What on earth is happening in this book!?

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

Calm down, Katai. For an odd place like this, no matter what happens, it's not strange.

Concealed Guardian No 0 icon.png

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

Ah, owl...!

Writer's Block No 0 icon.png

Concealed Guardian No 0 icon.png

Writer's Block No 0 icon.png

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

W-what was that...

Tayama Katai icon.png

It looked like the owl from a moment ago and the taint were fighting, but...

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

It seemed like it was trying to stop the taint's sabotaging.

Tayama Katai icon.png

Those guys, are they enemies...?


Chief Librarian's Request 3

Tayama Katai icon.png

Touson! Are you still not ready?!

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

Just wait a little bit longer... I'm gathering information of this owl.

Tayama Katai icon.png

Geez that Touson, taking so long when he ends up like that...
How long is he gonna make me wait?

Alice icon.png

Alice icon.png

Rabbit, Mad Hatter, playing cards, the Queen.
Who am I forgetting about?

Alice icon.png

Tayama Katai icon.png

Hey, wait!


Chapter 1, Paragraph 5

Tayama Katai icon.png

Touson, Tousooooooooon!

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

What is it, Katai?

Tayama Katai icon.png

T-there was... A beautiful girl!

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

A beautiful girl? It wasn't just an illusion shown by your desires?

Tayama Katai icon.png

You're wrong! She was there for real!

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

What are you saying? So far we haven't met any people from the books. *
To specify, he means book characters and so on, not writers of the books. At the time this event was published, it was first time when actual book character made an apparance.

Tayama Katai icon.png

Whatever, she went that way. We have to go after her!!


Chief Librarian's Request 4

Alice icon.png

Ah!

Tayama Katai icon.png

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

Tayama Katai icon.png

Finally caught up with ya! Hey, young girl. You...

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

May we ask you a few questions?

Alice icon.png

You aren't playing cards.
You are unknown people!

Tayama Katai icon.png

Eh, that's wrong. Uhh... We are great writers... No, that's not right. How should I say it...

Alice icon.png

You are friends of "them" mister told me about.
I can tell it.

Tayama Katai icon.png

Mister...? Them...?

Alice icon.png

Tayama Katai icon.png

Hey, wait!

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

She's super fast... Let's go after her.


Chapter 1, Paragraph 6 (Part 1)

Tayama Katai icon.png

Hey, listen to what we've got to say!

Alice icon.png

Eek! Stop it! Stay away from me!

You are right......


Chapter 1, Paragraph 6 (Part 2)

Tayama Katai icon.png

Haah, finally we got rid of them!

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

In the end, we lost sight of her... Who is that girl?

Tayama Katai icon.png

No matter how ya look at it, she's Alice from "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland". That's for sure!

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

...She might be around here somewhere. Let's look for her.

Sealed Library 1

Aka icon.png

Yo, heard you got an assignment from Chief, what was it?

Aka icon.png

...I see, he wanted you to investigate a mysterious book we got from an anonymous source.

Aka icon.png

But Chief didn't go call Cat? That's a problem...

Aka icon.png

Eh, the sealed book was a work of literature?
Why didn't you say that earlier!? That's super rare, dude!

Aka icon.png

We're gonna go talk to the guys who are investigating directly, right now!


Chapter 2, Paragraph 1

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

Huh? Katai, can you hear that?
......o......i......

Aka icon.png

Are we online? Recently we made it possible so we could connect even though we're not in the book with you guys, but... The connection sucks.
Maybe it's 'cause it's a sealed book...?

Tayama Katai icon.png

Ah, that voice!

Aka icon.png

Ah, you guys! How's it going?

Tayama Katai icon.png

Just listen to this!
There are Taints, but not just that, there are some owl-like things, and a mysterious cute girl...
It's seriously crazy here!

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

Um, we'd better explain from the beginning...

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

Anyway, where did the cute girl Katai found run off to?

Aka icon.png

Um... First of all, the owl things are guardians of the book.

Tayama Katai icon.png

Then they're different from Taints. Well, that's good to hear.

Aka icon.png

We can't say that for sure, you know. Those guys normally keep to themselves, but when they see outsiders they'll attack.

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

What on earth are those guys?

Aka icon.png

Well, an alchemist put the guardians there when they sealed it, but I do feel like there's some kind of secret behind this book.

Tayama Katai icon.png

We were fighting with the Taints and Guardians earlier! Ya think it got sealed to ward off Taints?
Maybe that alchemist was trying to protect this book from the Taints.

Aka icon.png

Would an alchemist go out of their way to do that?

Aka icon.png

Sealing a book someone else wrote is a whole different magnitude of difficulty.
Originally, sealing is a technique used by alchemists to keep their own research a secret from others.
And the alchemists over there wouldn't be able to do it... And there's also another real big problem...

Concealed Guardian No 0 icon.png

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

I know you're still talking, but those guys came out again...

Tayama Katai icon.png

Jeez, we're in the middle of something here!


Sealed Library 2

Aka icon.png

That's right! The main problem is the Taints.
For Taints to be present, the seal must be weakened and allowing outsiders to infiltrate.

Aka icon.png

Along those lines, that cute girl you guys saw...

Tayama Katai icon.png

Yeah yeah, she looked like she could totally be Alice!

Aka icon.png

Alice?

Tayama Katai icon.png

The girl character from "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland"!

Aka icon.png

Huh. So this book is called "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland".

Tayama Katai icon.png

What's with that lackluster reaction? It's so famous, you must have heard of it, surely?

Aka icon.png

Well, anyway.
The girl you guys saw, she wasn't a writer, right?

Tayama Katai icon.png

...That's true! I was positive she was a character who resides in this world, but I guess she could be a writer.

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

That girl could be this work's author?

Aka icon.png

Might be best to save her quickly, since the Taints are going berserk on that seal.

Tayama Katai icon.png

That's right! It'd be nice have her fight alongside as a comrade who wants to protect literature!


Chapter 2, Paragraph 2

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

Hey you guys, what exactly is this white gear that dropped from the Guardian we defeated?

Aka icon.png

It's probably a sealing gear. It's what makes the Guardians move.
It's real important for alchemists as well, so we might as well have you guys collect them.

Tayama Katai icon.png

Sealing as in, the gears are the seal?

Aka icon.png

Well, strictly speaking, that's not exactly correct... These gears are meant to activate a seal. The actual seal is something else.

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

Where is that seal?

Aka icon.png

The boss Guardian... The Guardian who is vital for the seal has it.
Ah, even if you meet that fella, you'd better run away.
At this point in time, it would be pretty scary for you to break the seal.

Tayama Katai icon.png

Even if you tell us to run, though... Well, what's the boss Guardian like?

Aka icon.png

Don't ask me. But I'm pretty sure you'll know as soon as you see it.

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

Boss Guardian... I wanna try to interview it...


Sealed Library 3

Tayama Katai icon.png

Where on earth did that little lady go!

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

This world is so huge, there are limits to how much we can search...

Tayama Katai icon.png

Well, I'm sure this world is just a garden from the author's point of view.

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

Yeah, 'cause they'd know everything about their work.

Tayama Katai icon.png

All we can do is carry on!

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

...What if that child is the author of "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland?"

Tayama Katai icon.png

We can't decide that just based on looks Touson, that's prejudice!

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

You're one to talk...


Chapter 2, Paragraph 3 - Book Delve

Note: This recollection is not recorded in the Recollections Register.

Tayama Katai icon.png

Concealed Guardian No 0 icon.png

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

Compromised Ink No 0 icon.png

Tayama Katai icon.png

Y'all sure are stubborn!

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

I guess they think we're outsiders...

Tayama Katai icon.png

So we seem like the evildoers in their eyes...

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

We have to find that girl quickly. It would be bad if the Taints got their hands on her.

Tayama Katai icon.png

Yeah true, and she must have been stuck in the place for like, ever...


Chapter 2, Paragraph 4 - Book Delve

Note: This recollection is not recorded in the Recollections Register.

Tayama Katai icon.png

Jeez! Get your stuff together already!


Chapter 2, Paragraph 5

Tayama Katai icon.png

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

Tayama Katai icon.png

We finally found ya!

Alice icon.png

Did you come to butt in again?!

Tayama Katai icon.png

No! We want to save you!

Alice icon.png

Liar! I know you just want to kidnap me.

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

You're mistaken... Please listen to us.

Alice icon.png

Ah!

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

Eh?

Alice icon.png

I had a fine idea just now.

Alice icon.png

The bad boy who's bullying me and trying to chase me away...
If you wanna play so bad...

Alice icon.png

Protector of the Seal icon.png

Tayama Katai icon.png

Omg... It's huge!

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

Wait, could this be the guardian protecting the seal...?

Alice icon.png

If you want to play so bad, then take care of this one!


Chapter 2, Paragraph 6

Protector of the Seal icon.png

Alice icon.png

Fufufu, you defeated it, huh?

Tayama Katai icon.png

Hey, this ain't a laughing matter, it was protecting the seal for us and all...

Sealing Gear icon.png

Alice icon.png

The seal? You mean this?

Tayama Katai icon.png

Hey, when did you...!

Sealing Gear icon.png

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

Wait... What are you doing?

Alice icon.png

Fufufufufu!

Tayama Katai icon.png

You didn't just break the seal, right...?

Alice icon.png

Thank you for getting rid of that big owl.
Now I can make this world mine!

Tayama Katai icon.png

What are you saying...

Alice icon.png

I don't need you guys, so get out.
*shaking noises*

Aka icon.png

What's going on over there, are you guys alright?
*white flashes*

Aka icon.png

Oi oi, this is bad, the book is turning black all of a sudden! What's going on?

Tayama Katai icon.png

Um... Well...

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

The seal kinda got broken just now...

Aka icon.png

Oi oi hold on... That thing over there...

Alice icon.png

I am Alice, the protagonist of this world!

Alice icon.png

Aka icon.png

She's a taint!

Tayama Katai icon.png

What did you say!?

Alice icon.png

Fufu, this is so fun!


Sealed Library 4

Aka icon.png

You've gotta be kidding me...

Tayama Katai icon.png

Damn it, we were tricked!

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

It was true that you couldn't judge a book by its cover...

Tayama Katai icon.png

She didn't feel like a Taint at all!!

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

If we don't stop this tainting... What's gonna happen?

Aka icon.png

The notion will collapse, and to be frank with you, the book is already heading towards its doom.

Tayama Katai icon.png

I see! So basically! WHAT DO WE DO NOW!?

Aka icon.png

I'm guessing that thing was sucking up the broken world bit by bit, gathering strength.
After breaking the seal, there's nothing to get in its way.
*shaking noises and flashes*

Aka icon.png

Before everything gets sucked up, de...fe... the... Tai...

Tayama Katai icon.png

Hey wait, hold on, can you hear us? Hey!!

Lewis Carroll translucent icon.png

I think I lost them... So scary. If I keep getting glared at like that, I'll be cowering.

Lewis Carroll translucent icon.png

There's no tour guide for Wonderland... I wonder if that's it.

Lewis Carroll translucent icon.png

...I feel uneasy.

Alice icon.png

Alice icon.png

Cheshire Cat?

Lewis Carroll translucent icon.png

You...!

Alice icon.png

Cheshire cat! I missed you!
Wow, you can talk!

Lewis Carroll translucent icon.png

Yeah, I can talk, little miss.
Umm, I wanna become friends with you... What do you think?

Alice icon.png

That's a wonderful idea!
I'm Alice!

Lewis Carroll translucent icon.png

Alice, huh! That's a lovely name.
My name is...

Lewis Carroll translucent icon.png

Who am I, again?

Alice icon.png

Cheshire Cat, are you lost or something?

Lewis Carroll translucent icon.png

Yeah... I guess I've forgotten who I am.
Will you still become friends with me, Alice?

Alice icon.png

That's just fine with me. Then in return, let's have a handshake!
With that, we shall be friends!

Alice icon.png

Lewis Carroll translucent icon.png

Ouch!

Alice icon.png

What's wrong?

Lewis Carroll translucent icon.png

Oh no, I just felt dizzy right now.

Alice icon.png

You got dizzy, I see! Are you alright?

Lewis Carroll translucent icon.png

You're so kind, Alice. Thank you.


Chapter 3, Paragraph 1

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

My vision is spinning...

Tayama Katai icon.png

Was that girl for real when she said she's dealing with this destroyed world?

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

Does that mean that as time goes by, she'll get stronger and stronger...?

Tayama Katai icon.png

If we don't deal with this quickly, it won't turn out so pretty...

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

Yeah... Let's hurry.


Chance Meeting 3

Lewis Carroll translucent icon.png

Would you know where we are, Alice?

Alice icon.png

This place is wonderland, my world!

Lewis Carroll translucent icon.png

Wonderland, I see, I had a feeling it was... It sure is full of wonders.

Alice icon.png

That's right! It's oh so very, wonderfully strange!
I love this place - I've become quite fond of it!

Lewis Carroll translucent icon.png

I see! I'm so happy to hear that, although I'm not really sure why.

Alice icon.png

That mister said there are other worlds out there, you know!
But I'm gonna stay in this one forever and ever!

Lewis Carroll translucent icon.png

Who is this mister you're talking about?

Alice icon.png

Mister fairy! But I lost sight of him after I came here.

Lewis Carroll translucent icon.png

(...Fairy who is... a man...? That's a sight I could live without seeing...)

Lewis Carroll translucent icon.png

Umm... Is it okay to not go look for that mister?

Alice icon.png

I'm sure he's alright, he's a fairy after all!
Fairies sneak in even though you lock the door, those little tricksters!

Lewis Carroll translucent icon.png

Well... if you say so. Hope we can meet them again one day.

Alice icon.png

Cheshire Cat, do you believe me that there exists fairies?

Lewis Carroll translucent icon.png

Of course! I'd love to meet them as well!

Alice icon.png

I'm oh so very glad! Adult's usually always scold me, you know...

Alice icon.png

Fufufu, I hate adults.
But mister and you, Cheshire Cat, I like them!

Lewis Carroll translucent icon.png

Lewis Carroll translucent icon.png

Alice, where did you come from?

Alice icon.png

I can't remember. I just somehow got here...
I feel like I was reading a book.

Lewis Carroll translucent icon.png

A book...?

Alice icon.png

There were a great many pictures and it was so exciting!
This place is the country from the book, you know.

Lewis Carroll translucent icon.png

Lewis Carroll translucent icon.png

I see, so this is the world of "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland"!

Lewis Carroll translucent icon.png

And... I'm Carroll. Lewis Carroll...
I wrote this book...

Alice icon.png

Alice icon.png

That's why everyone here is strange.

Lewis Carroll translucent icon.png

(Then just who is this "Alice" here...?

Alice icon.png

Are you alright there? You look quite like a boiled owl!

Ugh... Alice...

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

Hey Katai, there's a person collapsed on the ground!

Tayama Katai icon.png

Oi, get it together!

Lewis Carroll translucent icon.png

Lewis Carroll translucent icon.png

Umm... Uhh...

Tayama Katai icon.png

You must be the actual author... right?

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

You're the author of this book? What's your name? When did you get here??
Weren't you assaulted by the Taints or Guardians?

Tayama Katai icon.png

This ain't an interrogation, Touson! Come on, you gotta start from self-introductions.

Tayama Katai icon.png

I'm Tayama Katai! Guess you wouldn't know me, but I'm just a bit famous among a certain crowd.

Lewis Carroll translucent icon.png

Um... Got it...

Tayama Katai icon.png

No need to have your guard up around us, we don't bite, you know!

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

We were looking for you. Tell us your story.

Lewis Carroll translucent icon.png

Um, well... I'm Lewis Carroll... I believe I'm the author of this book, "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland"...
Are you two fairies who lost your way in here?

Tayama Katai icon.png

We came to stop what's happening in this book.

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

This book is currently in danger of annihilation.

Tayama Katai icon.png

We're chasing after a Taint taking on the appearance of Alice... A girl who is destroying this world.

Lewis Carroll translucent icon.png

Eh... Alice?

Tayama Katai icon.png

You know her!?


Chance Meeting 5

Lewis Carroll translucent icon.png

No way... Alice looked like she was having so much fun here... She would never do that!

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

I wonder... You can't judge a book by it's cover, you know.

Tayama Katai icon.png

Hey, that's what I said earlier...

Lewis Carroll translucent icon.png

If she can live thanks to my book, then...

Tayama Katai icon.png

Hey, just calm down and hear us out. If we don't stop the Taints, then you're gonna be the one who disappears!

Lewis Carroll translucent icon.png

So you're telling me to defeat her?

Tayama Katai icon.png

Well...

Lewis Carroll translucent icon.png

That girl was unhappy, so that's why the world of this story became her solace...

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

That may be so, but if we don't do anything, then...

??? icon.png

Cheshire Cat, why are you with those people?

Alice icon.png

Lewis Carroll translucent icon.png

Alice...

Alice...

Why are you making that face?

Tayama Katai icon.png

Oi, we found you! Don't mess up this world any further!

Alice mimesis 1 icon.png

Shut up, shut up!

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

Please Alice, give the story back to this person.

Lewis Carroll translucent icon.png

Alice, please listen...

Alice mimesis 1 icon.png

So you are just the same as those adults, I see...

Lewis Carroll translucent icon.png

No, that's not right, Alice...

Alice mimesis 1 icon.png

I am Alice, the main character of this world.

Alice mimesis 1 icon.png

That's right, I shall make this world mine.

Tayama Katai icon.png

Don't do it, that'll make this work disappear...

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

You're going to end up erasing the story you like so much!

Lewis Carroll translucent icon.png

You guys... Just stop.

Alice mimesis 1 icon.png

Don't dare to give orders to me in this world!

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

Uwah!

Alice masked mimesis 1 icon.png

That world with the tiny room is just too boring for me!


Chapter 3, Paragraph 5 (Part 2)

Note: This recollection plays upon the first delve fighting against 1500HP Alice.

Lewis Carroll translucent icon.png

Alice, I really do understand your feelings. You wanted to go somewhere, anywhere but "here".

Lewis Carroll translucent icon.png

You really loved the world of stories.

Lewis Carroll translucent icon.png

In the world of daydreams, you're so free. There, you can do anything you like, and nobody will scold you.

Lewis Carroll translucent icon.png

You aren't wrong. Your power of imagination is yours and yours alone.
Your imagination is not something to be cast aside. Nobody can deny you that...!

I love this place, so it's mine...


Chapter 3, Paragraph 5 (Part 3)

Note: This recollection plays upon defeating 1500HP Alice.

Lewis Carroll translucent icon.png

Alice icon.png

I thought my wish had come true...

Alice icon.png

This is a goodbye, isn't it...

Lewis Carroll translucent icon.png

No, you can't...

Alice icon.png

If I'm here, then you will disappear, right?

Alice icon.png

Actually, I knew all along.
That I wasn't chosen by this world.

Lewis Carroll translucent icon.png

Alice! I just remembered. I'm Lewis Carroll.

Lewis Carroll translucent icon.png

I'll write a story for you, and give it to you.

Alice icon.png

Just for me?

Lewis Carroll translucent icon.png

If you are there, you can be free. It's a story just for you.

Lewis Carroll translucent icon.png

In that world, strange creatures will be by your side.

Alice icon.png

Yes, that's a promise, Lewis!

Alice icon.png

Lewis Carroll icon.png

Alice icon.png

Lewis, thank you.


Chance Meeting 6

Lewis Carroll icon.png

Tayama Katai icon.png

Ugh... She was such a cute and brave girl!

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

Maybe the Taints we have been fighting up until now all used to be people who felt that kind of way.

Lewis Carroll icon.png

Um, you guys...

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

Do you feel better?

Lewis Carroll icon.png

Yeah...

Lewis Carroll icon.png

...Could you tell me. What is the reason you guys are fighting for?

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

It's... for the sake of literature...

Lewis Carroll icon.png

For the sake of literature?

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

No, that's not completely correct. The truth is, we're fighting for the sake of people from the past and present, and even the future.
We may not know their faces, but we're connected through our works.
It's for people like that girl Alice.

Tayama Katai icon.png

Hey, that was pretty nicely put there, Touson...

Lewis Carroll icon.png

Got it. ...I'm still confused, but I choose to believe in you guys.

Lewis Carroll icon.png

I... want to continue to spin more tales. I promised her, after all.
So please take me with you to the strange world you live in.

Tayama Katai icon.png

Carroll... Thanks!


Alchemist 1

Aka icon.png

Youyouyou you guys! You were okay!

??? icon.png

I had them show me what you fellows can do.

Faust icon.png

Faust icon.png

It was entirely worth it to make the arduous journey from overseas.
It is a wonder that you did not just exterminate the Taint who broke the seal - you even brought the soul of the author into our world.

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

Who are you?

Aka icon.png

...He's an alchemist from the Society, apparently.

Tayama Katai icon.png

What Society... This is the first I've heard of it.

Faust icon.png

My my, you don't know of us even as you work directly under an alchemist? ...Well, I suppose you just haven't been notified of us?

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

So, who are you? What kind of society is your Society?

Faust icon.png

I'm Faust. My duty, as well as the duty of our society is...
"To observe and quantify the notions constructed by humanity, record them in the form of books, and protect them."
Our society has traversed several generations and has protected secret wisdom and knowledge this whole time.

Aka icon.png

Hooty tooty bull. You're just a secretive group of alchemists who hog all the knowledge to yourselves.

Faust icon.png

Knowledge is power... A very dangerous thing. It is unacceptable for it to be dealt with by those who are not chosen.
I'd rather you not associate my society with yours, which licks the boots of the nation while pretending to do it all for the people.

Aka icon.png

Ugh... Shut up...

Tayama Katai icon.png

So, what kind of business has that big wig from overseas got with us?

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

I know! You're the one who sealed "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland", right?

Faust icon.png

Your deduction is correct. I brought that book... in fact, my sealed book collection here.

Faust icon.png

Five years prior, I sealed this book around the time the first Taint phenomena was observed.

Faust icon.png

I thought as long as you just seal the notions that make up literature within their books, then you can protect them from corruption.
I never considered that such a Taint wielding its own will would break the seal.

Faust icon.png

It is unacceptable for something that has been recorded to be lost.
So that is why I came here - to inspect the library in the far east which counteracts tainting by using "transmigration".

Aka icon.png

The transmigration technique is top-secret, classified information, how did you get wind of it?

Faust icon.png

Please don't underestimate the Society's information network.

Faust icon.png

It was beyond our expectations that you fellows would be able to counteract the Taint phenomena.
I offer my thanks for getting rid of that vexing Taint.

Faust icon.png

The Chief Librian of this library... I don't know what his name is, but I must pay my respects to him as well.


Alchemist 2

Chief Librarian icon.png

So sorry I'm late.

Aka icon.png

Chief, what took you so long!? Something crazy happened while you were gone!

Chief Librarian icon.png

...Seems like there's no need to introduce you guys.

Tayama Katai icon.png

We heard everything from him.

Chief Librarian icon.png

I heard, too.
Taints that were trying to annihilate literature, huh... I truly apologize for putting you guys in such danger.

Tayama Katai icon.png

This enemy was completely different than the ones we've encountered up until now!

Chief Librarian icon.png

They weren't just trying to destroy the notion of the book, they were even trying to absorb it and become stronger, huh...

Faust icon.png

Who knows if their actions arose from instinct, or whether they were premeditated...
But their behavior was completely different from the arbitrary behavior of the other ones. They don't fall under the category of other existing Taints, an unknown entity.
They are Mimesis... As those who mimic the work, such a name seems fitting.

Chief Librarian icon.png

Mimesis......

Faust icon.png

This is a grave situation. No matter how trifling the writing, to have it be destroyed is a sacrilege against us...
If we consider that those things may start to proliferate significantly in the future, the Society must reconsider its direction.

Chief Librarian icon.png

And your direction is?

Faust icon.png

That is none of your business.
However, our goals should be the same, so for the time present, I'll have you fellows cooperating with me.

Aka icon.png

I guess it is what it is. Even though you guys act all high and mighty, this stuff is just waayy too difficult for you guys to handle, right?
We'll do something about it for ya.

Tayama Katai icon.png

The ones who are gonna have to do something about it ain't you, but... yeah! Bring on all the books you've got!

Faust icon.png

Fine. We look forward to seeing what you do next.
As for the book you purified for us this time... I had planned to reseal it, but as according to contract, I shall let you keep it.

Chief Librarian icon.png

Yes, the book we helped out with will be ours to manage.


Alchemist 3

Faust icon.png

I was surprised. To "give human form to spirits once again" is an idea our alchemy could never have dreamed up.
Although it may be a makeshift solution, to have transmigrated writers oppose the phenomena of the tainting of literature is just...

Chief Librarian icon.png

I am quite flattered to be praised this much by the most important figure of the Society.

Faust icon.png

I raise you the highest regards. I suppose such unusual circumstances would bring about unexpected developments.
You alchemists of the far East, with no record or history, who don't kneel to our Society...
I never would have thought that you could arrive upon such a truth.

Faust icon.png

However... It is a severe disappointment that the momentous discovery of such a technique, mayhaps history-making in nature, was not announced to us.

Cat icon.png

There was nyo need to, so that's why.

Faust icon.png

Certainly, that is something that is up to the discretion of your organization. I do not blame you.
However, things are different when it comes to being able to fight off tainting.
In order to protect the world's literature, we would like you to give us the secrets to that power.

Cat icon.png

You were called Faust, correct? I have nyo clue how you managed to find this place, but...
It's quite a bother to us to have outsiders trying to order us around. The library and alchemists here are under our jurisdiction.
And the government has no plans to release this secret information to the outside.

Faust icon.png

To think that a single country's government could conceive of giving orders to us... You demean us.

Chief Librarian icon.png

Well, we can't do much about it.
I can't simply ignore orders from above, and even if I were to, I would never turn over my research to you.

Faust icon.png

My, so you cannot offer your cooperation either, I see. Why is that?

Cat icon.png

It's because he does nyat trust you.

Chief Librarian icon.png

...I believe we will be standing up against powerful enemies from now on forth.
In that case, the writers we transmigrated will be our strength. That's all I can say here.

Faust icon.png

....Then let us come back to this another time. We have more sealed books.
Furthermore, it's possible that the Mimesis will appear again. You shall us out in that situation.

Cat icon.png

I have nyo objections to that. However, next time go through the government first.

Faust icon.png

Pf... I'll think about it.

Faust icon.png

Cat icon.png

Oi Chief, no backstabbing.

Chief Librarian icon.png

I know... Jeez, it's like the arrival of Perry. *
He says a black ship came, which is referencing the black ships from the West that came to disturb Japan's isolation in history.


Reinvestigation 1

Chief Librarian icon.png

Well then. The storm passed and all there is left is this book, but...
It seems that there is still a mystery we must solve.

Aka icon.png

What's wrong, Chief. Is there still something we gotta do? We beat the Mimesis that there was in this book.

Chief Librarian icon.png

No... There is still something inside this book. As a proof of that, the tainting hasn't calmed down yet.

Ao icon.png

You are right... If we take care of the source, also the world that had its notion collapsed should naturally restore through time, but...
It seems that it's hindered by something.

Chief Librarian icon.png

Carroll, I want to hear your opinion. What do you think?

Lewis Carroll icon.png

You asked what do I think, but... Ah!

Lewis Carroll icon.png

She said that she's got one more friend...
That time I didn't understand what she meant, but it might be a Taint.

Aka icon.png

What do you mean? Are you saying that there is still a Mimesis?

Chief Librarian icon.png

The tainting is not the same level that the earlier Mimesis caused, but...

Lewis Carroll icon.png

I'll go check it out. After the seal was removed, we've got no other choice than protect the book, right?

Lewis Carroll icon.png

Besides... If I'm not the one protecting it, I could never face her again.

Chief Librarian icon.png

Yeah... Sorry to bother you immediately, but the job is yours.
If it's an investiation, it would be good if an author who knows the book thoroughly delves.
