Part 27: Fade to BlackLast time on Hyperdimension Neptunia, our heroines saved Lastation from the evil Avenir corporation. Now, on Hyperdimension Neptunia
Huh, am I all alone today? Oh well. After saving Lastation, Neptune and her friends were summoned by CPU Black Heart to the Basilicom!

Thank you. You may step out, now.
Its nice to meet you, heavenly Console Patron Unit of Lastation! Its an honor to be here.
Nice to meet you. Im the CPU Black Heart, the guardian goddess of Lastation.
Ah, but they had seen this girl before!
Ive heard your voice before, but Im kind of surprised You look no older than us.
We dont age in Celestia, so thats probably the reason. This is living, so they say.
Um, youre not talking quite like a goddess anymore
Its just you three. Plus, were not strangers or anything. No point in acting stiff and formal.
Isnt it tough being a goddess? I mean, you gotta protect all of Lastation!
The work isnt exactly demanding, but its kinda suffocating since Im the symbol of Lastation.
Youre all seeking the lair of a strong monster, right?
It seemed that she actually had information for them as well.
What is it, anyway? Is it really so important? Ive never heard of such a thing on Lastation.
I gotta get it to save Histy. Someone locked her up and she cant get out!
Histy? Still doesnt sound familiar.
I cant help you there, but I can point you to where you might find something useful.
But you have to tell me if you find out more, okay? Im still the goddess, after all.
Its a trap.
Ugh, well, whos fault is this nonsense?! We gotta find a spot to pitch a tent.
Youre the one who kept napping, saying there was plenty of time left to get to the next town.
O-Oh Did I really?
Man: Thc! Y-You girls! Whatre you doing here? Youre not Bravo Team
Whoa! Right back at ya! Youre in a crazy police outfit and you got a neato gun
Man: Fools! This place is dangerous. You should run!
Wh-What do you mean?!
Man: Im from S.R.A.T.S., a special forces unit investigating some evil-sounding deaths of residents. Ive lost my team, though
Must be those zombie dogs! If youre not a master of unlocking, you should pay attention or youll get eaten!
Special forces? Zombie dogs? Have you been playing too much of something?
Man: One warning. Ammo is limited, so make sure you aim for their heads!
Im heading out now. Be careful, ladies. Man, Im itchy. Itchy. Tasty. G-Good luck!
Another geek pretending to be the main character of a game
Gah, dont sneak up like that.
But like I said, its a trap.
Whaaaat?! Ohmigosh, we were so close to the Key Fragment! Are you seriously gonna stalk me forever?
This is my last attempt to finish you off. Who knows if youll ever come back to Lastation after finding your Key Fragment.
Youre right. Didnt you really come here because youre just kind of sad and youll miss playing with us?
N-No! Im here to settle this. This has nothing to do with my loneliness or other emotions I definitely dont have!
Wanting to settle this is, itself, an emotion of sorts. Whatever. Its best to settle crap while you can.
Well, cast no dirt into the well that gives you water, right? If she wants to settle things, lets help her do that!
I mean shes not going to give up another shot at Neptune.
Boss Battle: Black Heart
Another day, another fight with Black Heart. She uses a powerful multi-hit combo and a shooting attack that hits everyone, just drag her down while keeping defend up and you should be fine. Shes not as hard as the CPU Breaker was. Also savor this because we wont be fighting her again for a long time.
Unfortunately, it turned out as poorly for her as every other attempt.
The True Goddess? Did someone tell you to defeat me in order to become that?
It has nothing to do with you since you lost your memory. But !
Are you satisfied? The three of us are a party, but next time we can do this one on one if you want.
Sh-Shut up! I dont care about that. This isnt over! Ill pay you back for this someday. Dont ever forget that!
By sheer luck it turned out that, despite this being a trap, Black Hearts tip was good.

Boss Battle: Guard Vermin
Remember this guy from ages ago? Hes a lot tougher this time, hitting very hard and unleashing a cutscene attack at low health. Just play it like the CPU Breaker and youll be fine. Its like the strategy for all these bosses is the same or something, crazy right?
Wait, those Key Fragment things are real? Shes not just making that up?
We need two more to save Miss Histy, right?
Just who is this Histy person? Your explanation is not unlike a coloring book, Nep.
Actually, I havent heard from her in a while. But who cares, yknow?! Itll be a nice surprise for her when we save her!
Next Time on Hyperdimension Neptunia: Plots! Extremists and the Overlords Messenger teaming up? Only a heroine of justice can foil this plot!
