Part 12: JusticeLast time on Hyperdimension Neptunia, our heroines kicked around Leanbox. Today, on Hyperdimension Neptunia
I swear nothing I have bought from that girl hasnt exploded within like an hour.
Video- Gust and Justice
Its Gust! I missed you so much!
Uh-oh, why do you look so tired?
Someone asked for potion
But no shops carry ingredient for it
Needs made by end of day. What should Gust do ?
Is it something we can gather outside of town?
Yes, but alone is bad. Outside full of monsters.
Well totally help you out, then! You helped us last time. I cant ignore a friend in need, cuz Im a friend indeed!
Yes! Well get the ingredient for you.
Yes?! Thank you muchly.
Exploded with value?
No thanks necessary. We can help one another when we need it. Just let us know if you need us again.
Well be going now. I dont wanna distract you from finishing your job.
Bye-bye! Again, thanks!
No, mostly fire. Even things that shouldnt explode.
People say sugar can stimulate the brain. I wonder if theres anything I can eat.
Theres something in the fridge Ooh, juice! And an expired cup of pudding!
Every fridge needs pudding. The lid is labeled Nep.
Nep? Lady Neptune?
I guess this means it belongs to her. But its the only pudding in here
I know its the only one
But it belongs to Lady Neptune Grudges over food can get messy
-=Whatre you so troubled about?=-
Plus that pudding she told me was totally expired.
-=Besides, its her fault for leaving it here until it expired in the first place!=-
Shhh! Th-This isnt my voice! It has funny brackets!
-=You want something sweet, right? Does it matter whose it is? Whats the big deal? Its pudding. Its expired. Its yours.=-
Is that really how it is ?
~*~Get back, evil being trying to confuse poor Lyrica!~*~
Statistics show that 75% of friendships end in pudding theft by the way. Its an epidemic.
H-Huh? Whats going on? Now there are funny sparkly brackets too
~*~I am the angelic persona residing within your heart. Think carefully. This pudding is not yours to take.~*~
-=You aint gonna gain anything by being a goody-goody. Take it if you want it. Listen to your hungry heart.=-
~*~You must not eat it. This is an immoral act, no matter your reasoning. Plus, its expired. You will get indigestion.~*~
-=Just think about the thick, gooey, smooth sugary sweetness melting in your mouth and sliding down your throat =-
~*~Your heart should be screaming that it is wrong to steal what doesnt belong to you!~*~
-=Eat it! Eat it ALL!=-
Weve actually got a PSA on it from some creepy demon lady later today.
Just go buy another one ? Unless you want to get stuck in the bathroom
I wish Id had a weird angel me warn me not to eat that pudding instead of just Compa.
I heard form the people running away in fear. They said there were some others still left behind.
Huh? Wheres Nep-Nep?
Shes locked herself in the bathroom ever since she ate that expired cup of pudding.
And I told her so many times not to eat it and just throw it away
S-Sorry, Compa, Iffy Go ahead of me Ill catch up later.
Okay, well be going, but hurry up and finish in there!
Im all outta TP... Can you leave me a roll by the door?
Gonna head this off at the pass. IF and Compa were forced to go it alone against a terrible monster! Oh no!
Nep-Nep isnt here, either. We really cant do this without her
Compa, we must stay strong. Im sure shell flush and come help us in the nick of time.
Until then, weve got to protect the injured civilians!
Man, that was a doozy. I think I dropped a pound. I hope Iffy wont be too mad about the clog
Oh, there they are! Fighting some giant creature! Theyre totally in danger!
Oh, no! Iffy, the monster is-!
Crap, the people are over there !
I cant stand any longer
I cant either
Civilian: G-Go away!
Hold it right there, villain!
But just when all hope seemed lost, a heroine of justice appeared to save the day!
A heroine of jerk-stice you mean.
Compa! Iffy! Sorry for th-blargh!
Nep-Nep! Goodness, are you okay?
Ooooh, a kick straight to the face. That must have hurt.
Whatre you doing, jumping right out in front of me?! I even called my attack so youd know to wait, too!
When Nep-Nep is focused on something, she stops seeing or hearing anything else around her
She was our trump card Compa, stop slapping her so much! Her face is already indented from that kick.
Sorry. I went full-force on that one. She might wake up in a few weeks.
Ill take care of this monster myself! Leave it to me!
Hey, she did defeat the monster at least.
Wh-Whoa. We didnt stand a chance, but she beat it up all on her own.
Hmm? Whats this? A cry for help?
Then, Im off. Up, up, and awaaaaaay!
This is Gamindustri, after all. So many different walks of life
After Neptune regained consciousness, they decided to take a proper look around Lastation.
Video- Basilicom Revolution
Lastation, ruled by the Console Patron Unit Black Heart. The land is mostly obscured by industrial factories.
So, um, does the theme of each landmass match with that goddess preference?
I dont think so. The CPUs are here to protect us, but humans develop the civilization itself.
Aw, thats so realistic. Compa, whatre your thoughts on this place?
These factories and chimneys remind me of an industrial revolution. Im not familiar with this kind of thing.
I suppose its not appealing to mainstream girls. I think its cool. Anyway, lets go to the Basilicom.
They were huge jerks at the Basilicom and wouldnt help us at all.
Moderator: Monsters? Whatre you going to do with this information?
Were searching for an item called a Key Fragment. We must defeat a strong monster to get one.
Moderator: Defeat monsters? Dont be so foolish. Even the Lastation Defense Force doesnt stand a chance against them.
Youre nothing more than children. Go home!
Y-You shouldnt judge us by our appearances. Weve defeated lots and lots of monsters already.
Nep-Nep here can transform and become really super strong. Well show you!
Moderator: Transform? Whatre you rambling about? If you want to play magical girls, go elsewhere. Youre a distraction.
This Basilicom is a bit arrogant. Shows what kind of leader Black Heart is when you meet the people who serve her.
Moderator: Were not like those who suck up to Black Heart! I dont care what people say, but dont confuse us for them.
You brats better scram already, or Im going to have to hurt you!
Oh? Have you even seen our stats? Were probably way stronger than you!
Dont bring that up to an NPC. Lets just come back later. We cant waste time.
It seemed our heroines would be forced to find other leads if they wanted to battle monsters in Lastation
He didnt hafta be such a party-pooper. I guess people are different everywhere Sometimes the world is cruel.
Did you hear the way he was talking? He really crossed the line talking about their CPU like that.
Hmm, maybe we should ask around about monsters in town.
Good idea. It may take longer, but we just got here and dont know much about Lastation yet.
This is just the beginning. Lets take our time, explore, and learn!
Next Time on Hyperdimension Neptunia: Monopoly! The wages of capitalism are death!
