Part 41: The Trust SpearPreviously on Hyperdimension Neptunia they found the Wisdom Bow despite largely ignoring my recommendations. Today, though, they cannot help but search where I asked them to.
Hmm, okay. I know! Why dont you try this brain-training game?
Its got spelling, math, memory tests, and so much more!
Oh, I played that. It said my brains age was forty or so.
No way! Mine was fifty!
M-Mine was sixty
Why dont you two play it more before suggesting it to me?
I mean, Lowee is 90% snowy forests.
Video- In Lowee
Heretic: Wha-?! This disc is split in half ? No, someone broke it!
I cleft that disc in twain! No more trouble. The dashing heroine arrives to stop the blinded heretics actions!
Heretic: Whore you?!
Ive no name to give to a villain except justice!
Even if each monster is weak, a large number can still be used to cause massive destruction.
I had to destroy that disc before you summoned a monster!
Heretic: Hah! Its too soon to act so haughty if you only destroyed a single disc. What can a little raisin-chested girl do, anyway?
Heretic: Ive got a whole spindle of discs! Dont think you can stop me so easily, little boy!
Stop insulting my chest! Ill never forgive such blatant villainy!
I suppose I should have been more specific, in retrospect.
I know youre hiding them somewhere! You better give them to me or Ill rip your clothes off and laugh at your inadequacy!
Heretic: No! Please dont! Ill freeze to death in the snow! Itll fall off!
Heretic: This isnt very heroic! This is sexual harassment and I dont have to take it!
You pissed me off and this is your divine punishment!
Though really, if youve seen one snowy forest youve seen them all.
Especially since they all seem bizarrely similar.
A snowy forest on Lowee Histoire did say that. But I mean, everythings covered in snow
Thisll be a snap, fizzle, and plop. Right, Compa? Oh, whassup?
I-Its so cold ! I underestimated this place again I shouldve changed into my wool panties
I mean Im not one to criticize normally but it seems like they didnt really put enough work into creating this world back in the day.
Video- Seal of Quality
Wh-What? Howd you conclude were like high schoolers? Are you saying were young and innocent, but mature-looking?
Historian: Just stay away. This forest isnt for sightseeing. Im busy excavating, so Ive no time to waste.
Whatcha diggin up? Ancient burial site? Bonus dungeon? Who are you, anyway?
Historian: I am a historian. Im looking for the Trust Spear that belonged to the hero, Miamoato.
Its widely known the spear he threw could pierce through any material at an ungodly velocity.
I think his name definitely deserves to be listed as one of the four heroes.
Okay, enough useless trivia that wont advance the plot. Find anything?
Historian: Ugh ! My intuition tells me this is the place. Whyre you so cruel ?!
Thats a no. Iffy, Compa, looks like this forest aint no good. Umm whats all that scattered stuff?
Historian: Junk Ive found thus far. Take whatever you want. Its a pain to clean up after myself, anyway.
Aww, there are so many foreign-looking shiny metals. Whats this one?
Historian: Huh? Ahhh! Th-Thats the end of the spear! You can see the Miamoato Seal of Quality engraved on it!
So its part of what were looking for. Sucks you overlooked it, huh?
Awesome! Lets head back. Brrr, I wanna take a hot bath and drink some hot cocoa and eat some hot pie!
Im all for that idea, but you really should curb your sugar intake. My hands and toes are all numb from the cold!
Sytem Message: Obtained Trust Spear: Butt-Spike.
Historian: W-Wait, girls. A-A-Are you really taking that with you ?!
Is it okay? You said we could take whatever we wanted from the pile of junk
Historian: Ghhh The biggest mistake of my life, trusting high schoolers ! But Im a man of my word. Looking for the Quartet Arms?
You sound like you know more. Tell us something more useful this time.
Historian: I heard the Guild Extremists were ravaging some ruins recently, looking for some treasure.
It might be worth checking their hideout
Hmm, the Guild Extremists? Lets drop by, then
I guess the Guild Extremists must have largely dispersed after Neptune defeated that fake Arfoire.
Huh? I thought this was the Extremists hideout. Whatre you doing here?
Moderatist: The Extremists disappeared Were cleaning up, but the amount of stolen goods is shocking.
Were looking for the hero Miamoatos weapon. Have you seen anything like that?
Moderatist: Well, not that I know of, but you can look around all you like.
What about these dealies? Hmm, that historian fella said Miamoatos weapon was a spear, right?
Just look for some big wood, or a long stick, or something! Lets see
Hey, let me see the butt-spike we got in the forest.
Okay Youre not gonna take it and sell it for a quick cell phone case fix, are ya?
Dont be a fool! Look at this crest and that round plate over there.
Oh, it has the same crest! Does this belong to Miamoato, too?
No doubt about it. This must be the parrying guard. See? You slide the shaft through here, then attach the blade.
System Message: Obtained Trust Spear: Parry Guard.
Moderatist: Sounds like you found what you wanted. Ive heard a story about the hero Miamoato before
Really?! Oh man, I so totally wanna hear it!
Moderatist: After fighting the goddess, Miamoato lost his lover to the king of this area at that time. He challenged the man to many duels.
I heard the weapons he used back then are stowed away in a cave on Lowee. You might find something else valuable there
Another cave, oh dear! Nep-Nep, did you hear that?
How many caves can there even be in Gamindustri? I mean, I dont have to ask that, I know. Its rhetorical.
Video- The Princess
Huh? Whats this girl doing here all alone? Excuse me, whatre you doing?
Princess Pear: I-Im sorry. Oh, please Please forgive me!
What? Forgive you ? Did you do something naughty?
Princess Pear: I believed in him I knew he was coming to find me but I couldnt keep waiting in a different castle
Please! Dont tell the plumber Im happily living with another man!
I dunno who youre even talking about
Princess Pear: Oh, I ask this of you! In exchange, have this. Its the hero Miamoatos Trust Spear!
Its just the shaft, but its the real deal, I hear. My boy toy said he found it here. Im sure its quite expensive !
Hey, you shouldnt give other peoples stuff away like that. Plus, dont you feel sorry for your ex-boyfriend?!
I-Idiot. Compa, just shut up and Ooh, this has the same crest. Its definitely Miamoatos.
Princess Pear: Im so, so sorry Im no longer pure I cant even say Im a princess or anything now !
We, uh, we got it! Well not tell a soul about this, so have a, uh, great life!
System Message: Obtained Trust Spear: Shaft.
That was quite awkward.
How could you just take that from her? We sold our noble hearts and good intentions for this. She betrayed her ex-boyfriend!
This isnt the time to care about something like that. Weve got our priorities, too.
Were still missing the spearhead.
Histoire said to look in a snowy forest, so
So obviously the next step is to waste even more time.
Sh-Shut up! I still look a lot better than you.
Whats that mean?! I was just being an honest girl scout. Are you denying my kindness?!
Please dont fight
Nuh-uh, no way! I aint gonna let this slide today. Youre always bustin my chops!
Thats because youre so incredibly difficult. Ill crack open that head of yours to release all that air!
This is an explosive situation They wont listen No fighting Time for Special Forces Compa to mediate!
As an officer of the peace, I suggest you settle this with a boxing game!
I know that one. You hold the controllers like gloves and move around, right? You can play bowling with it, too!
Yeah, real fights are a no-no, but you can release all the stress you want in this game!
Its a deal. Ill show you my golden left hook!
B-Bring it! Ill show you my golden, friendship sunshine uppercut!
Lets begin. In this corner, team Red, the troublemaker from the sky Neptune!
Ooh, nice one, Compa!
And in this corner, team Blue, the moody money maker IF!
Wh-What did you call me?!
Heaven or Hell! Lets rock!
Ahhh hahhh Im getting so sweaty!
Yeah, this is a pretty awesome workout!
Oh, look at them having fun. Im glad gaming helped them make up!
Also, there was another dragon in the forest they went to search next. Dragons dont really seem to fit into any logical ecosystem, Ive no idea how they can be so prevalent.
And then there was a horse. Um, Im sorry, my records have a bad reference. It probably wasnt a horse.
Video- Cameo Appearance
But no heros weapon. This must be the wrong place What a bummer.
Dinosaur: Could you be seeking the Trust Spear of a certain hero?
Ewwy-spewwy! A lizardy crocadiley No. A dinosaury thing.
How in the ? Well, this is Lowee Such things are normal here. Cool. Ive never seen one before!
Dinosaur: Yes, sorry, I am indeed a talking dinosaur. Thank you for ruining the precious ecosystem in this forest.
No need to apologize and no need to thank us, either.
Did you mention the Trust Spear? Do you know anything about it?!
Dinosaur: Yes, of course. I played with Miamoato a long time ago, along with my friends of assorted colors.
I was once his partner. Ive passed down stories about him, like how he became a hero.
Why are you seeking his spear?
To defeat a twisted goddess. All the monsters in this world are her doing. If you can tell us anything, please
Dinosaur: Then youll use the same path the four heroes took to Celestia?
You just know it all, huh?
Dinosaur: Fine. You may take this spearhead belonging to the Trust Spear.
System Message: Obtained Trust Spear: Spearhead.
Yippee! Im glad this dinosaur isnt eating us and pooping us out as little spotted eggs, but giving us gifts instead!
Nep-Nep, look. It fits perfectly on the end of the shaft!
System Message: Obtained Hero Miamoatos Trust Spear.
Dinosaur: Dont underestimate the power of a goddess. Be careful and save this world, like the four heroes once did.
