Part 33: ConspiracyPreviously on Hyperdimension Neptunia, Neptune didnt die. Not that Im happy about that. Also that narrator guy has been gone for a long time.
Maybe he got eaten by a monster or something. Thatd suck I guess. Lets just get on with this.
So I guess the creeper dude gave them a job or something.
Turquoise: We need as much weaponry as possible to carry on an armed revolt against the unsexy Basilicom.
In order to transport them out of the Basilicoms view, a path like this would be perfect.
That said, I need you girls to eliminate the monster threat around here. Im depending on you.
These Aristocrats are up to something pretty shady.
Listen to you. I know we just met, but is that any way to talk to a lady?
Jade: That voice N-Neptune? Wait I need confirmation. Where are the other two?
Theyre resting. Anyway, I heard you intend to use that pathway to transport weaponry.
Jade: Hmm. Are you interested in weapons? Sounds like youre the same excitable Neptune inside. I cant say much Wait here.
This is a weapon manufactured by Avenir, a major company in Lastation. Its far more advanced than Leanboxs weaponry.
I heard Basilicoms prohibited trade between landmasses, since the standards vary greatly between them.
Jade: Sure, so they say. I have a friend working at this particular company.
Avenir doesnt approve of weapons for human use, but my friend helps me make things that are.
You think this is acceptable? This isnt something that should be overlooked.
Jade: You come across a little more intimidating in that form, huh? Well, Im not doing this just to waste my time.
Its no secret, but if youre going to interfere, Ill have my way. This is only until the Basilicom understands
Plus, that guys working with Avenir? Thats not a good sign.
L-Look at the ground! Somethings
Somethings coming out!
And you are?
Cicada: I am one of the Cicada Horde! I will not let you pass!
C-Cicada Horde? Ive never met one before! Nice to meet you, Mr. Cicada. But, how do you breathe underground ?
Cicada: Oxygen flows freely in the subterranean caverns, so thats not an issue Anyway!
Cicada Horde, hm? The hole you came out of seems pretty shallow.
Neptune; Whoa, thats right. Its like a little trap or whatever. You really a Cicada Horde guy or just a goofball?
Cicada: O-Of course I am! I am I am !
Mother: Hey, get back here! Are you playing Cogs of Battle again?! Its dinner time, so get your lazy butt home!
Cicada: The Cicada dont need to eat! Hsssss!
Mother: Dont be a dolt. I apologize for the trouble, girls. Come on. Walk.
Playing Cogs of Battle, huh?
Kids are silly.
Its seriously driving me up the wall that I have to keep seeing her stupid face.
Today, I want to talk about the peace and order of Leanbox.
What do you think of when you hear the word weapon?
Heavy arms, tanks, bald and hulky space marines, perhaps? Well, those definitely dont exist on Leanbox.
If anything, simple swords and revolvers.
We prohibit importing weapons from other lands, like Planeptune or the filthy Lastation.
There is no possibility for terrorism or mass destruction caused by automated mechanical weapons on Leanbox.
This is the main reason this land has remained so peaceful.
Do you want an enriched, fulfilling retirement? Do you want to raise your children in a safe, nurturing environment?
By all means, come and join us on Leanbox!
Ill see you in the next update.
Im pretty sure its not her face. Also, did she seriously just call Lastation filthy?
A letter? Hmm, didnt I get one like this before? Whoa! Maybe its an invitation to another awesome party!
Jade: Im not certain about the party, but it seems they want to apologize for the whole poison scandal.
They want you to go and speak with their goddess directly.
Hey, how dyou know what it says? You shouldnt read someone elses mail! Its a capital offense, with a capital O!
Jade: As mentioned earlier, we oppose the Basilicom. We cant let any trivial matters slide.
Apology I see. Im sure the goddess didnt do anything. We should tak to her to make sure.
Jade: Are you joking? They tried to kill one of you, and youre willing to return? You shouldnt take them so lightly!
Thats right. Theyve proven theyre not afraid to break the rules. What if they go even further this time?!
Ill make sure Nep-Nep doesnt shove any foreign objects in her mouth!
Plus, Im sure they wouldnt do anything so vile in front of their goddess.
I think we took down the wrong one of the four of us back then, just saying.
That aside, wheres the goddess? I really want to meet her
I hope they wont pull any crap like before. Should we prepare an escape route in case of emergency?
Hey, look! Is that her? Shes gotta be a goddess. I can so tell.
Nice to meet you. Im the CPU for Leanbox, Green Heart. Thank you for taking the time to visit us today.
I apologize for the wrongdoings, Neptune. I cant believe our Basilicom would do that. Its my fault for being too lazy.
Seems like someone told the Archbishop about the Console War
C-Console War ? Whats that? Umm, well, its nice to meet you, Lady Green Heart!
Are you putting on a show for me? Ah, your friends are here, too. Know this
I dont intend to involve humans in our quarrel, either.
Um Lady Green Heart? Were looking for a specific item called a Key Fragment.
Oh? Oh, my Iffy? Youre here, too? What did I tell you about being so formal around me?
Are you traveling with Neptune? I must admit, I am a little envious.
Thats right, youre a goddess. I bet you dont have time to travel around, even if you wanted to.
Thats not really it. Whats this about a Key Fragment?
Were hunting high and low for one. Its guarded by a tough beastie, so we wanted to know if you had any ideas about that.
Also, if I ever see that bitch Conversation again she is so fired, stepping out on me like this.
Will you come here and speak with them?
Conversation: Im the Evangelist, Conversation. We met once before
We did, we did! When we first got here. I thought your voice sounded familiar.
So, Miss Conves Um, Miss Convy, were looking for clues about a Key Fragment. Do you know of any strong monsters nearby?
Conversation: As I said last time, Ive never heard of such a thing. But, I did pass by a really strange dungeon earlier.
Strange? Like how? Did it smell? Were there weird colors? Glowy symbols? Was it locked?
Conversation: I cant think of the word to describe it, but it was just a little off. Ill show you the way, if youd like.
If theyre looking for something a little off, I can think of something right in front of them.
Well be fine. We aint scared of no monsters! Just watch, Ill transform, roll out, and blast em all into cubes of ener-
Shh! But thats right, Nep-Nep is I dont know, but shes a little special when compared to normal people.
Well, were not heroes or anything. But we arent amateurs, either.
Conversation: Great. Id love to see this transformation, but Im not a fighter so Ill excuse myself here.
Aww, youre not gonna fight with us? Evangelists sound like hardcore magic caster summoning types.
Conversation: Unfortunately Maybe Ill be able to show off the next time we meet.
However, that might not even happen
Yeah, shocker, she tried to trap them in the dungeon.
No good. Its shut tight.
What do we do? Are we buried alive? Conserve oxygen! Are we dead? Is this Purgatory?!
Eww, none of that sounds like fun. Cant we just explore and find another way out?
Your optimism is reassuring in situations like this. Lets go before Compa starts to cry.
I I wont cry!
Yeah, your Evangelist is a real piece of work.
Video- Unknown Assailant
Dyou think we were tricked? The cave collapsed pretty randomly Convy was acting all funny, too.
Its your favorite thing. Fight evil and bring them to justice! Lets beat the crap out of the Basilicom people.
Oh, youve grown so violent, Iffy.
Thats okay, because I think todays about to be a pretty great day.
Whos this underboob lady? Your friend?
Whered you get that idea? She looks like you after you transform, kinda. Shes gotta be someone you know!
Aww I was hoping Iffy would be able to discern my identity.
Anyway, Conversation told me the poisoning incident was all your own act!
Was your goal to bring down the Basilicom by spreading a story about being poisoned by them?
Wh-Whatre you talking about? Why would we wanna do that? I almost died, yknow!
I wish I could trust you, but Youre staying with the Aristocrats, right?
Its only natural to befriend them and win the civilians votes through such underhanded methods!
Y-Youre mistaken! They did help us out, but we would never lie about getting poisoned!
Were only helping them cuz they helped us. The Basilicom stared all the bullying, anyway!
The Basilicom did not err. The Archbishop and the Evangelist both work very hard for me.
This beautiful, peaceful Leanbox This is all the proof I need.
Whether you intend to or not, youre assisting in destroying that peace. I will make you understand !
Go Neptune, go Neptune, go go Neptune!
Boss Battle: Green Heart
Weve got a fight with Green Heart, and its pretty easy. I think Leanbox wasnt always this late in the Find the Key Fragments sequence, because honestly its the easiest of the three.
Yes! Yes! Oh god its the best.
Everyone, until then.
Shes gone What a strange person. We forgot to ask her name.
Ive never been so happy to see Neptune win before.
Yeah its kind of creepy, no offense. Anyway, Next Time on Hyperdimension Neptunia: Conversation! Talking about problems helps solve them sometimes!
