Part 40: The Wisdom BowLast time on Hyperdimension Neptunia, Neptune and her friends found the Dual Revolver, which I still think is a bit silly. And I really must send her out after that narrator, doing his job and mine is hardly ideal.
Ooh, its probably something very, very interesting!
Should we ask? Hey, whats going on?
Producer: This is an event which produces masters of idols.
The top three girls among the contestants will be chosen and then their fans will produce and raise them into great idols!
You should try out for it, too. Im sure theyre still accepting entries.
An idol trio? Are we really good enough to be masters, though?
I think we gotta try! I betcha well win!
You think so? Are you sure? Well, were the main characters, so maybe we will!
Oh, for sure! Dontcha think, Iffy? Were gonna be celebrities and stuff!
Idols celebrities Ugh. Not like my opinion matters. I mean, the ideas not bad, but why us ?
We need to think up a group name right away!
Okay, lets do this thing!
I have no idea why they though this plan would work out.
I didnt really expect anything different, but it doesnt feel good as a girl to get rejected so quickly
Its okay Well just continue on with our journey to save these peoples world
Moving on to important things, they just found some random cave to search.
Yes, she said thats all she knows for now.
So if this cave is a ruin, theres a chance its here, right? Can I doodle on the walls? Would that make it more ruin-y?
I-I dont think it really works like that
That randomly picking caves continues to work is baffling.
Guild Fugitive: St-Stay away! Get back! Ill use this, if you dont do exactly as I say!
Is that ? Its one of Arfoires discs. Those things are everywhere!
I guess I wont complain.
This way seems to work for Neptune.
Were not going to kill you. Why would you think wed do such a thing?
Guild Fugitive: O-Okay. Sorry. I thought you were one of the Basilicoms pursuers.
Basilicoms pursuers? Are you a Guild member? Dont worry. Your goddess wont let another purge happen again.
Guild Fugitive: Our goddess? Shes finally arisen Ten years after the purge Shes finally
Youve been in here for ten years? Youll get sick and stinky if you stay in such a dark place. Go outside! Its safe now.
Guild Fugitive: N-No, I-Im fine. I like it here. Its private. So, dont tell anyone about me.
You can have this, if you promise to keep my secret. Its said to have belonged to the hero, Gheytz.
System Message: Obtained Wisdom Bow: Handle.
The hero, Gheytz One of the four ancient heroes? If so, we totally just lucked out.
This is a heros weapon? Looks like the grip to something. I dont know if we can trust this guy, though.
Guild Fugitive: Then, let me tell you where the rest of the pieces are. I found this in a small shrine while wandering in a forest.
Im sure the rest of the parts remain somewhere in that forest.
Am I still untrustworthy?
We have to trust you. We cant drag you with us But make sure you go outside sometimes to get fresh air, though!
These blogs continue to baffle and annoy me. At least they mostly seem to be short.
I have no idea why a forest on Leanbox was snowy. Its like there is only one type of forest in Gamindustri.
Oh, pssh, cmon, the Lost Forest? How bland can you be? Getting lost in thick forests is such an old trick.
Watch it, or youll jinx yourself and get lost first. Grandpa always said security is the greatest enemy!
Also these enemies theyre fighting, while admittedly unique, are starting to look nothing like their names suggest.
As it happened, they saved a somewhat unscrupulous fellow when they slew that monster thing.

Whore you? Whered you come from? We werent tryin to save you.
Merchant: Oh? But by defeating that monster, you most certainly did save me.
Now I wont be late for my meeting with Sir Turquoise!
Huh? You know the Aristocrat leader? Whatcha goin there for?
Merchant: I heard hes obtained some sort of rare item! Say would you like to purchase this here bow?
You want us to buy it ? Youre charging someone who saved your life?!
Merchant: Well, excuse me! Then, how about I offer a discount? Itll be a very special deal.
Nep-Nep, I think we should stay way from people like this Theyre crooks!
Merchant: What an outrageous assumption! Im only taking an opportunity to sell this bow, worth next to nothing, at a high price!
How could you ?! Im glad youre being honest, but were not going to buy anything from you.
Merchant: Ha! Thanks. Honesty is my only strong point.
Ugh, no thanks! Nobody in my party is an archer anyway. Right, Iffy and Compa?
Merchant: Oh, dont be like that. Its good to have an item just in case. Whaddaya say? Its cheap, but the quality is top-notch!
Get outta here, old cootie-bag! We dont want it. Were gonna have really mad faces on if you keep being a pushy jerk.
Just leave, unless you like pain. Would you like us to give you the same treatment as that monster?
Merchant: Eek! Please d-dont. Fine, you can have it. I just found it on the ground anyway.
Phew. Hes gone, but he left something weird behind. Is this really a bow? He said he found it on the ground.
Looks like a stick to me. Lets just take it, I guess. Didnt go as planned, huh?
System Message: Obtained Wisdom Bow: Lower Limb.
Didnt he say the Aristocrat leaders got a rare item? I wonder what it is.
Sir Turquoise, right? Worth checking out, at least.
I cant believe he tried to sell them a stick. I guess the next piece turned out to be owned by a friend of theirs.
We actually came to ask a favor. Were looking for an ancient heros weapon. Know anything about it?
Turquoise: Hoho, a heros weapon, eh? You must be talking about the Quartet Arms. Ive been looking for those, myself!
I had something appraised by a traveling merchant the other day. I thought it was part of the hero Gheytzs weapon, but no.
I think we met that crooked man. You shouldnt trust what he says at all!
Turquoise: Then theres still a chance its real? Please, take a look at this.
It looks like a normal string, but I believe it belongs to the Wisdom Bow.
The giant bow used by Gheytz to pierce the heavens. This simple material and shape It is just as recorded!
Thats not really enough to know, but if its true, then the part Mr. Caveman gave us could be real, too
Turquoise: Oh, thats definitely the Wisdom Bows handle! Now we need the upper limb to complete the bow.
Can we borrow the string? You can have the entire bow after were finished with it.
Turquoise: Sure, that sounds like more than a fair exchange. Let me give you sexy things one more tip.
Gheytz is said to have earned tremendous assets from his inventions after fighting the goddess.
I heard theres a shrine on Leanbox somewhere dedicated to him. I hope that helps you.
I see. Youre saying the last part may be there?
Turquoise: Its possible, although youd have to find the shrine first.
System Message: Obtained Wisdom Bow: String.
That guy was also pretty bad. They ran into something weird on the way to search for the shrine.
Oh, did a meteor strike here or something?
Pilot: As suspected. Yes, this is the site where a meteor fell.
Oh, whats up dude? Whered the meteor go?
Pilot: It exploded into pieces as it hit the ground.
But the crater remains as the worlds wound
The worlds wound Compa, do you have a jumbo-size band-aid?
Pilot: The damage has spread to the neighboring lands. Were at war with them and facing an economic meltdown.
A country-wide order was issued to the citizens to participate in war. Im on my way to report to duty.
Oh. Well, gluck! Ill cheer you on from here, I guess.
I will, too. Dont ever give up the fight!
Make sure to come back alive for sequels.
Pilot: Thanks. Farewell!
Lets stay away from this area.
True. We should take a different road.
Yep. I dont wanna die yet!
After wasting time with that for a while, they got back on track.

We might find Gheytzs shrine up ahead!
Im not sure its supposed to be that easy. We could take a look, I guess.
Nep-Nep, look, a cute monster-wonster! Lets take a funny picture with it!
Monster: Wh-Whats your deal? Busting in here with that jibber-jabber. Thiss my territory. Get out! Later!
Its running away! W-Wait, the pictures gonna get all blurry !
Nep, whatre you doing? Get back here!
And I told them it would be in a ruin. Its not my fault they went there last.
Wait for us, Nep. Whoa!
Haaah A-Are you two all ri- Ohhhh!
Looks like we found it. Gheytzs shrine. Look, theres a pedestal and glass case in the back.
Can I open it? Im gonna. Here I go. Opening it! Whoa.
Nothing happened. No alarms or traps Geez, youre even making me get worked up. Anyway, its empty.
Wait. Its hard to see in the dark, but there it is! The other half of the bow. It matches perfectly with what weve got!
System Message: Obtained Wisdom Bow: Upper Limb.
We did it. Thats the complete Gheytz Wisdom Bow. Good looking out, Compa!
Heehee, you sure pulled your weight too, Iffy!
Whats up with praising Compa? I found this place, yknow? She wouldnt have seen it if I didnt come here to begin with!
System Message: Obtained Gheytzs Wisdom Bow.
Its fine, though.
