Part 13: MonopolyLast time on Hyperdimension Neptunia, we messed around in Lastation a bit. Now, on Hyperdimension Neptunia
so anyway, after that I said I didnt know that would fit in there!
Ooh, are they tough? Super tough? What kinda monsters are they?!
I was told they attack in groups while making weird noises!
And I think I heard a weird noise just now
Huh? Oh, pshaw! Dont try to scare us like that.
I-I hear it, too ! Its coming from every direction!
Are we surrounded? Is it an ambush! E-Everyone, get ready ?
Were so not ready for this!
Robot Pet: Arf! Arf, arf!
Huh ? Arf ?
Oh god, thats terrible. Why would you oh, were on. Lets change the subject. Robot dogs!
Theyre canine-model robots. Phew.
Arent these the robotic pets popular a few years back?
Huh? I never knew nothin about it.
That explains a lot. These pet robots were abandoned by people after the trend died down.
Theyre not threatening at all. Look at how theyre wagging their tails and being all nice and stuff!
Robot Pet: Whimper!
Hehehe. There, there. I know youre just lonely, ArfArf. Its okay, come over here to Mama Neptune
Seems the robot dogs have found their newest pack member

I, Lastations CPU Black Heart, will tell you all about this land.
People call Lastation the Land of Black Regality.
You could also use words like mechanic land or steam punk if you want. Not like I really care.
Were still under intense development compared to Planeptune, but thats why we keep producing new inventions every day.
Thats the gist of Lastation, which is sometimes called the Dignified Black Land.
I dont know when Ill update this, but Ill write more about Lastation. Doesnt matter to me if you read it or not!
If thats how she is maybe it wasnt so bad we didnt get in to see her.
Huh? Shes kinda small, isnt she? I was thinking, like a big burly man as president.
Oh, she saw us. Shes waving at us Shes gotta be the right person.
I suppose shes come to the same conclusion about us.
Chian: So its you girls? Youre gonna fight the monsters for me? Are you sure youll be okay?
We all know not to judge books by their covers, right? Nice to meet you. Im IF. This is Compa, and thats Neptune.
Chian: My names Chian. I run a small factory called Passe in the central city.
We need someone to get rid of the monsters attacking our carriages and train. You ladies sure you can handle it?
You betcha! We know how to fight, so well totally be victorious!
Chian: I like you. That confidence makes it much easier for me to trust your words.
Anyway we helped that nice lady out.
LWE Feinne on Neptunia Mechanics:
This is a simple extermination dungeon, we have to kill five Cockatrices. Theyre easy and common. How about I talk about some notable special attacks we have right now? Neptunes got Dual Edge, which is a sword attack that also lets us Transform at the end of a combo or acts as a Combo Link if were already Transformed. We also got a shooting Transform attack, Charged Shot Level 1. 5pbs first special attack is Brave Note, which hits a whole enemy party with several of her normal magic attacks and is super awesome if there is still a group of enemies up when her turn comes around. It also Switches at the end of a combo. Reds Combo Link is actually a group attack as well, which is kind of cool.
So why dont you just always stay transformed anyway?

Nep-Nep, you act so tough in that form. Why do you think there are so many monsters here?
Dont ask me, but how could this be caused by the diminishing power of the CPUs? Do their powers even weaken?
Well, their power comes from the faith of humanity. If monsters keep attacking people, their faith will be shaken.
Meaning less protection, more monster attacks, less people, less faith Its a downward spiral.
Thats succinct. So, as more time passes, more monsters will appear.
I-I didnt think of it that way, but it makes sense! What do we do?
Dont worry. Im here. Someone told me Im the only one who can save the world.
I can save it. Ill prove it right now!
She has the same strong sense of justice, but this Nep-Nep is more dependable. I feel comfortable trusting her!
I agree shes an improvement over her casual, laid-back attitude but am I the only one who cant stand her either way?
What? Why would I do that?
I mean really, thatd just be silly.
I heard business isnt going well because a major company called Avenir is monopolizing their industry.
I heard smaller factories are closing down due to Avenir, but I dont think thats the only reason.
Monopolizing is bad, right? Then, like, that company is an evil conglomerate!
Are you going to assault them if I agree with you? We cant just assume a companys bad because theyre successful.
But I cant ignore the fact people are suffering cuz of them! If I take down that company, a lotta people would be happy.
I dont think take down is the right term. We usually defer to the Basilicom for these issues, not violence.
But we were told to leave there just recently. How will we get the Key Fragment or stop Avenir like this?
Avenir aside, itd be bad if our traveling budget ran out because of this horrible economy.
Lets keep moving to other landmasses and think about what we can accomplish there.
Do you guys ever actually know what youll be doing next time before you start doing it?
Again, why would we do that?
Next Time on Hyperdimension Neptunia: Rival! Will a surprise attack spell defeat for our heroines?
