Part 43: RemembranceLast time on Hyperdimension Neptunia, we were rejected by the other goddesses. This led Neptune to an inescapable conclusion.
Anyway, since we were feeling somewhat unwelcome in the other lands we returned to Planeptune.
Video- Gust Scene
Compa, where you going?!
I knew it.
Mr. Shopkeeper, did you invent this here wireless charger?
Shop Keeper: Yeah, I sure did. You can charge it by placing the battery on it. Isnt that swell?
This is a phony. A copy. I know who originally created this.
Shop Keeper: So? Whoever makes it more widely known gets the credit.
I assume the original isnt selling too well at its price.
Im selling it now for less. I mean, its not as high-quality, but
The customers seem happy, Im happy Its win-win, understand?
You didnt invent this item. Arent you concerned about the person who first made it?
Shop Keeper: I paid when I bought one off of her, so technically she didnt lose any money.
Plus, the customers are already convinced Im the inventor.
Theyre spreading the word, and more people are coming to me to get my item that I invented.
H-How could you ?
Given her business acumen, I suspect Gust has some sort of plan to take advantage of this situation that she is not sharing.
Shop Keeper: Youre interfering with my business. Go somewhere else!
That guy was mean.
Compa, let it go.
Why? Hes selling the item you invented and taking all the credit.
Gust is okay with it. He paid me what I asked.
Plus, even if no money made, my idea bring happiness to people.
Gust is satisfied.
Well, everyones unique and we all think differently.
What the guys doing is unacceptable, but if Gusts okay with it, theres no reason for us to care.
Well just teach him a lesson or two if Gust has a change of heart.
I mean, I wouldnt forgive him if it were me.
Anyway, as I was saying Neptune was bothered by her inability to remember her past.
Theyre not gonna listen to me until I can remember my past as a goddess.
Oh well. We can do this alone, without the other goddesses. Cheer up!
If you really wanna remember This is our last resort. Lets shake you like when you smacked into the ground from the sky!
Put down the syringe! Only old TVs get fixed when you smack them.
Havent you seen Nep-Nep when she uses her special skill? She might be kind of similar to household appliances.
D-Dont lookit me like that! Its not gonna work! Ill just get a headache.
Then, how about some medical treatment? Planeptunes medical technology is very effective, but very pricey.
How much? This is a worldwide crisis. If thisll turn things around, Id consider it.
Hell no. Advanced technology is bad! Lets stick to the old-fashioned way. Get ready for my backhand, Nep!
No hitting cute little girls! Dont gimme a shot, dont shoot me, dont cut me, gut me, slap me, clap me, or pinch me!
Once more. Let us return to the goddesses. I will convince them, no matter what.
We did have an option, though.
Worry not, buddies. Well find a way to get my memory back and then we can go ask the CPUs to join us again!
If you truly insist, I can repair your missing records using the tome.
What? How?! I thought you didnt have the power to write in the tome without a goddess.
Repairing is an exception. We have had facts disappear before like UFOs.
Are you sure? Once your memory is regained, there is no forgetting it again.
Yeah, yeah. Im a CPU, right? A goddess has gotta protect her land and stuff.
Its my job to convince the other chicks to fight Arfoire and protect Gamindustri!
That is not the-
Cmon, lets hurry! Monsters are still out there attacking peeps!
So, I repaired her records. I believe she began experiencing some past events again as the old and new information was reconciled.
Someones a-comin Oh, I guess I dont gotta hide. I need to ask where this is.
Excuse me! Do you know wh- Whoaaaa! Arfoire? I finally gotcha! Thisll be our final battle!
Dont ignore me! Whats up?! Are you totally not gonna say hi?
Oh, shes coming back.
I cant rule the human world anymore. This must be the time
Arfoire, what is the matter? You appear tense.
Wha-?! Wh-Where did Histy come from? U-Uh, hellooooo?
Am I like, invisible? Or are they just ignoring me? Fine, whatever. Ill just be a voyeur like I always wanted.
I cant stand it any more, Histoire. We must create a new, more competent CPU.
The next goddess may need another to share in the responsibility. Celestia is far too quiet for one person, after all
She probably didnt even really remember most of this when she had her memories, since shed basically just been born.
Histoire. Ive rewritten each lands records for the four goddesses.
By the time the new CPUs are born, billions of years will have passed in the human world.
No sign of my rule will remain by then.
They are ready. Look. These are your children. They have your eyes.
Thats not funny.
You are giving them your knowledge, your experiences, your wisdom That is how things are passed on in history.
And my responsibilities. This detestable ritual may end someday.
End? Sure I hope these new goddesses will be able to change the future.
I should have seen it then already, Arfoires plan. But I was far too trusting
Wha-?! Are you talkin to me, now? Well, whyd you ignore me all this time, you big-boobed meanie?
Celestia is in a very unstable state right now. Each CPU is changing their planet as they see fit!
The people below are getting dragged around by their goddesses selfish acts
This sounds familiar.
Take the other goddesses down. Bring them down and unify both the human world and Celestia!
That is the only way to save the people from the impending apocalypse.
Once you defeat the other CPUs, Celestia will be forced to accept you as the True Goddess and let you protect the world.
The world will end unless you bring order to the human world. You are the only one who can save Gamindustri!
I remember that. I was told Im the only one who can save the world. Thats why I wanted to help the folks in need.
I was fighting the other goddesses to protect my own land
Why didnt we notice? Everyone else was probably told the same poppycock !
We were being lied to. By that meanie hag Arfoire!
Neptune knew the truth now, whether that was better for her or not.
Are you awake? I figured it was about time.
I believe your lost memories and current memories were merging, causing you to fall into a confused state of mind.
Are you all right? Do you recall anything now? About your time as a goddess?
Yeah, thanks to you. I found out a whole lotta stuff. About you, the other goddesses, and Arfoire
If and Compa have left to go shopping.
They figured you would be hungry upon regaining consciousness. It has been six hours.
She did what Id expected shed do after she regained her memories.
She just went through a big information dump. Im sure shed want some time alone. Shes probably out stuffing her face.
No! All her stuff, including her wallet and antacids, are here. No way shes gorging. She left a note and disappeared.
Histy, can you find out where she is? Please, hurry!
It will take some time, but it is possible. Is this not an invasion of privacy, though?
It says thanks for all the fun times in very neat, curly girly writing! This is nothing like Nep-Nep!
This is true. It is just that the information I contain is quite large. This may take up to three days
Three days?! Itd be faster for us to look around on our own. We must look for some witnesses!
Leave that to me. I can finally put my cell phones to use!
And I could have predicted where she went.
What is she doing here by herself?
She is probably going to face Arfoire. There is an area over there for goddesses to ascend to Celestia.
She wasnt handling what shed learned very well.
Video- CPU Neptune Returns
Stay back! I remember all my stuff now! How Arfoire lied What shes done up until now!
So So Why are you trying to do this alone?
Nep-Nep Youre not the only one who wants to stop Arfoire.
Thats not the point! I just cant stand knowing a part of her is inside me and I cant get rid of it!
You dont even know if all four of the CPUs could do this. Why would you think going alone is enough? Youll die!
I wanna end this craziness! Arfoire myself and everything else!
Were a party. We share the same fate!
Thats right. You arent coming off as cool at all by trying to beat her alone.
H-Hey! Its not like Im trying to look cool !
There she is. The Nep we know. If you really want to go, then were going to stop you.
F-Fine! If you think you got the stones or whatever!
We were lucky she wasnt really serious and fought us as Neptune.
Boss Battle: Neptune
Nep has a lot of health but isnt that hard, because shes balanced like we might only have IF and Compa. She uses real Neptune attacks but like a normal enemy just attacks twice per action.
She realized something she hadnt considered after the battle.
But this isnt the same. Is that us?
Whatwhatwhat? Helping Avenir again? I dunno aobut helping out our sworn nemesis!
Besides, dont their employees carry giant boomsticks they make at their factories?
Chian said Avenir doesnt make weaponry for human use, due to their presidents motto.
Plus, the employees themselves arent bad people. You shouldnt be picky about what lives deserve saving, Nep-Nep!
I remember that. I wanted to save people but not the people I didnt like Im such a selfish little girl.
Iffy is out getting us food. Lets just be patient and wait for her. Do you want to call her and ask where she is?
Iffy went to buy me some yummies but I got sick from some poison sandwich. I wonder if she ever found tuna-mayo?
If youre busy, we can come back later. Whenre you free? Tomorrow? The day after? The day after that? After that? That?
Youre really pissing me off. I said to ask the Basilicom. I dont care anymore.
Would that other chick know? Whats her name? Wait, one more! Have you heard of anyone named Histy? Her full name is-
Holy crap, shut up! I said I dont know! Such nerve, showing yourself in front of me like this. Enough! Dont ever return!
Namely that she was sort of a jerk.
That is not true. You did not ignore my voice. You were the only one who believed in me
Get some sleep? I feel like someone asked me to do something while I was unconscious.
Yeah, someone was crying out for help in my dream!
In your dream? Then its not real.
Oh, you never know. It was so weird. I betcha someone far away was like pa-choo and sent me a telepathic message, yknow?
Noticing the shortcomings of yourself or others is natural, but everyone has both good and bad traits.
Try focusing on the positives, or you will be consumed by hatred.
I think I can understand why Arfoire is trying to destroy the world.
She is trying to commit the biggest taboo for goddesses although, it will not solve anything.
Please, stop Arfoire. No matter what!
But now that she knows, she might just be able to talk some sense into the others.
This is Are we at your house?
We were closer to here than the Basilicom. This was the second time I had to carry you in like this. Youre heavier now.
Are you up? I guess we were a bit too hard on you. Sorry, but its kind of your fault, too.
I know, I know. Sorry-dorry. I was just being all stubborn and stuff
You should get some more rest. Well leave you alone for now.
No, no. Im getting up now.
Im okay. I was kinda a failure as a leader, huh? I brought down the whole party.
When were you a leader? Well, we are a party, though.
Dont try to leave us again. Youre the one who told me that, you know.
And I said it to Nep-Nep before that. Seriously though, dont disappear like that.
Yupitty-yup-yup! I wont try to go anywhere alone anymore except the bathroom. Histy taught me a lot.
Where is she, anyway?
Shes been researching ways to defeat Arfoire.
She knew youd regain your motivation after you got enough sleep!
Oh yeah? I need to go talk to her! Is she next door? She is, right? Histy!
Theyre like sisters. A smart one, and the other one.
Thats the plan! Assuming we can find them. Theyre all hanging out somewhere without me like jerks, even that narrator guy. Can you find them?
Looking. Just be aware, this could take
Three days. Yeah. Well, Next Time on Hyperdimension Neptunia: CPU Black Heart.
