Introduction

“I was a puppet without a will of my own―――”

Nazuna Nito was once part of Valkyrie, which used to reign over Yumenosaki Academy as its top unit, alongside Shu Itsuki and Mika Kagehira. As Valkyrie's leader, Shu sought perfection for the prestigious unit's artistic performances, resulting in a recording being used for Nazuna, whose voice had begun to change, and in Mika being a backdancer. Their puppet show-like performances were distorted, yet beautiful and overwhelmingly stunning. However, Eichi Tenshouin would come to destroy Shu's perfectly crafted stage――――

Afterwards, Nazuna withdrew from Valkyrie, and moved to Ra*bits at the invitation of Hajime Shino, Tomoya Mashiro, and Mitsuru Tenma. Meanwhile, Shu was deeply scarred, and shut himself in his room, thus distancing himself from the performing arts. Upon seeing Valkyrie in a state of disarray, Eichi then attempts to lure Shu back into the open by using Ra*bits as bait...?!

A battle with the previous Yumenosaki sovereigns, Valkyrie, thus begins on the Tanabata Festival stage――――

Differences from Original Story

  • In Tanabata Festival - When you Wish Upon a Star 2, Tomoya comments that Kuro and Mitsuru look like father and son, while Anzu is like the mother. In the play, he implies Keito is like the mother.
  • The stage play has an additional scene where Mademoiselle tells Mika how Shu feels after their confrontation with Eichi in the underground live house, after the events of Milky Way - Fall of a Great Star 6.
  • In Milky Way - Epilogue 1, Kanata is replaced by Mademoiselle in the stage play, though Shu still mentions that an old friend had told him the same thing as Mademoiselle.
  • Additionally, in Milky Way - Epilogue 1, Shu waits for Mika to return and are not shown leaving together. In the stage play, they have an additional conversation and are seen leaving together.
  • In the stage play, the events of Marionette - Epilogue 2 with Nazuna seeking closure with Shu and Mika occurs after the Tanabata Festival, unlike in the original story where he talked to them in spring.
  • Similarly, Nazuna tells the other members of Ra*bits about his past with Valkyrie after the Tanabata Festival in the stage play, unlike in Marionette - Prologue where he tells them in the spring.
