Part 36: The Release of HistoireSo last time on Hyperdimension Neptunia it turned out Blancs Evangelist was evil, and Neptune beat her down.
I always knew she was shady.
Thank you. I wish we could celebrate right away with a LAN party, but
The Archbishop and Aristocrats leader are here. This is far more important to the future of Leanbox.
Yvoire: Whatre these underage girls doing here? Neptunes your archenemy, for crying out loud!
Theyre a part of this too, so Im having them attend this meeting. Ill accept no objections.
The Basilicoms concealment of the truth led to this ordeal. Ill hear your reasoning.
Yvoire: The Parliament revolt is our shame, so I was only trying to conceal all the facts regarding
Liar, liar, cassock on fire! We heard everything from Jade!
Youre tryin to hide the fact the revolt was meant to allow heretics a chance to escape the Sanctuarys oppression!
Is this the truth? Answer, Yvoire.
Yvoire: That is true. However, it is the Basilicoms duty to subdue heretics! To protect our goddess reputation !
I will accept any punishment you have, but believe me when I say everything Ive done has been in our goddess best interests
I am at fault for relying on you to handle everything.
Also this isnt as fun as watching Neptune beat her up but its pretty close.
Thinking about woulda and coulda wont do anything. But if you admit you goofed up, you can do better, right?
Your optimistic outlook hasnt changed, even after losing your memory.
Youre right, though. Its time to turn things around. Nep-Nep, you said you were looking for a Key Fragment?
Oh crap. I totally spaced about that! Histy must be so tired of waiting. Do you know where one is?
Its guarded by a strong monster, right? I may have an idea.
Theres a dungeon Convy used to frequent. Maybe its worth looking into.
I will tell you its location later, but first We really do need to celebrate. Lets go to the Red Ring Table.
This is the third time Ive invited you to a part Well, the first time was by the Archbishop
Anyway, they found another of the mysterious Guard Vermin in the dungeon Green Heart had told them about.
Video- Guard Vermin
Boss Battle: Guard Vermin
Its another Guard Vermin, hes pretty much the same as weve fought before. Watch for big hits and his cutscene attack at low health, otherwise its easy.
And with that, they had all four Key Fragments.
Why would they scatter the items to release Histys seal if they wanted her to stay locked up forever?
Maybe they were gonna let her out if she was a good girl or they needed her?
So they can just seal and release her over and over, just like that? Histy is a person right? Right?
That Well know when we meet her. Shes got a really cute voice, though! I betcha shes like our age!
I hope. I dont want to find out shes a nasty end-boss monster in disguise, you know?
Th-That would suck. I would most definitely cry if that happened.
Finally Neptune headed back to ruin her own land.
Its really not safe to do while listening to music, though
Look. That lady doesnt even know shes being approached from behind by Mr. Bicycler.
Maybe its unsafe to not hear the stuff happening around you.
There are some leisure activities that take advantage of that.
I went to this one haunted house where you have to wear some headphones while inside.
Oh, the place filed with dolls? Its so scary there!
Youve both been there?! Ugh, lameburgers. Whats it like? Is it a big mansion? Do you take pictures of ghosts?
Its like stereophonic sound.
Grotesque, unearthly noises sound pretty real and it makes you feel like things are a lot closer than they actually are.
Yes, it made me think the dolls were actually alive!
Huh. Wouldnt it be creepy if the dolls were really trying to talk to you, but you couldnt hear them cuz of the headphones?
Dont creep her out even more!
What if she never comes back? Not, not that I want her to.
Video- Nisa Returns!
Civilian: No one will come help me, anyway
I dont have any friends and I just got fired from my job. I can only act tough and superior on internet forums.
Hahaha Im making myself cry and wet myself simultaneously. Go ahead and eat me, if you still want me.
At least Ill be good for something
Wait just a cotton pickin minute!
Im Nisa and Im your friend, Lonely Wolf!

Im sure its super fun. Ill check it out, but Ill try not to let myself get addicted.
Right. Arent they supposed to be searching for someone?
Video- The Search
Rescue Histy, of course! Did you forget about that, too?
No, no! I mean, she hasnt told me where she is. Actually she said she doesnt know
What?! You dont know that? I guess we never really discussed her location, but come on!
Maybe shes being guarded by a strong monster, too. Like the Key Fragments.
We should be able to find her if we keep looking for strong monsters! Problem solved.
There is no need for that.
Histy? Can ya hear me? Can you chat right now? Over.
Yes, Neptune. I am so sorry I have been unable to keep in touch lately.
Histy says shes sorry for not contacting us. I wish you woulda, like, texted us! Over.
Yeah, and I guess it looks like it was a real person.
Yeah, but barely. How, though? We were never able to hear anything before.
Its most likely because Ive become a tough, independent girl who doesnt cry!
Actually, that has nothing to do with it. My seal has weakened since the fragments are gathering in one place.
It also has something to do with you all being on Planeptune.
My cell phone is working again, too. We must be getting more bars all over the place!
No, it is possible you are closer to where I am being held. The Key Fragments should lead you to me.
I heard ya for the first time while on this landmass, too. All right, so the fragments will know where Histy is! Over!
Just dont try to talk to them. I dont think they will respond to you.
Right. Try watching them closely. They should show some response as you come ever closer to me.
Yes, this is an important area. It couldve looked a little unique. Im a tad disappointed.
Why would anyone hide something in a place that stands out?
Deep in the cave, they finally found Histoire.
Thank you so very much for gathering the Key Fragments.
Hello? Where are ya, Histy? Wheres the girl with the cute voice? Here, Histy Histy Histy, come on out, girl!
I am the book before you. I am a tome. I contain all information regarding this world.
So this book is Histy, eh? All right! What dwe do now?
Dont look at me! Im sure if you put the fragments together, something will happen.
Like a puzzle? One sec. Let me give it a try
Ill help ya, too. Well, this one obviously goes here. Oh, that ones on this edge Umm
Whats it supposed to look like anyway? Maybe we should just stack em like a totem pole! Oh! Oh, its glowing!
Didnt see that coming, I figured they were about to release a final boss or something.
Nice to meet you. I am Histy rather, Histoire. \[*`-*]v
She sounds kinda the same, but its not really what I expected.
Sure. I look a little different when Im a tome. Like a book. Minor changes are normal. [*^-^*]>
Okay, so Histy is just Neps pet name for you. Anyway, thats one down. Whatre we doing now?
Were gonna go after Overlord Momus and Arfoire! Were not done yet!
We didnt find either of em, even though we were zooming all over the world. Got any cryptic metaphors for us, Histy?
Plus shes competent and helpful, she really sticks out in this group.
Arfoire disguised herself to suit various situations. All of these are complete falsities.
To top it off, you all actually have fought Arfoire.
Nuh-uh. Wait, so Momus is all pretend and Arfoire is the one spreading stories about him?
We heard the story from a heretic first, who heard it from an Evangelist. She came to us about it too, at one point.
But that Evangelist was like a witch who was all stalking and attacking us. That was also Momuss messenger, huh?!
Sometimes she is an Evangelist. Sometimes the Overlords messenger. She was doing all this to achieve one end
In that case, weve already beat up Arfoire.
No. All those fabrications were mirrors of her true self she created.
Did you not notice? On each land, you dealt with some sort of scheme she created.
She did keep coming back over and over, but they were all different lands. I just thought they kinda looked similar.
So what was her objective? Shes been involved in a whole lot, but I dont have any idea who she is.
True. There is still much I have to tell you.
How about we find a place we can have a more comfortable discussion?
