Buried Stars


  • Language: English, Japanese, Chinese

"Nobody can wear two masks without revealing their true self."

It was the finals of the fourth season of "Buried Stars" a survival audition competition featuring public contestants.
The stage collapsed during the live broadcast, trapping the contestants and a number of the staff.

With hours to go until the arrival of a rescue team, their sponsored smartwatches are the only way to know what's going on in the outside world. By connecting to SNS via their smartwatches, they can see thousands of comments of worry, support, criticism and mockery. The survivors on the inside and the communicators on the outside wait for rescue.

Then an anonymous user on SNS forewarns of murder, saying that they must pay for their crimes, and the survivors become further divided as their predicament worsens...

Will the survivors be able to last until the rescue team arrives?
Who is the unknown killer, and why are they doing this?

What choice will the main character make at the end of this survival game?

    • In the classroom on his first day of school, protagonist, Kiryu Yuuya, meets Mikanagi Akiha, a girl with a mysterious aura about her.

      Akiha was the spitting image of a miko who repeatedly appears in Yuuya's dreams and kills him.

      However, Yuuya felt a strong sense of fate in their meeting each other.
      "It's feels like we finally meet... Yuuya-san."
      Akiha said those words, filled with a strong fascination in Yuuya.
      They were soon drawn to each other...

      However, Akiha's older sister, the miko, Koharu, let Yuuya in on a startling revelation.
      "Akiha-chan... is not someone from this era."

      A young woman's love that pierces through the vastness of a thousand years.
      The tragic fate imposed upon these fighting shrine maidens.
      And the followers of darkness who seek to rampage through the world of night...

      With those strong feelings alone, will Yuuya and Akiha be together?!
    • Eighties. The romanticism of the early rock’n’roll, the making of the trans-national corporations, the spirit of freedom and rebellion against society, political intrigues, world unbound by the vice of globalization and the birth of modern business model. The time when money could buy everything and meant nothing.

      The main character is a son of a Soviet Union diplomat, living in Japan since childhood. After his parents returned to their motherland, he has been living alone, working part-time as a programmer for a large Japanese corporation and attending a local elite school for children from wealthy families. One day he gets caught in a whirlwind of events, intrigues and complicated human relationships. Is he destined to get out of this whirlwind unhurt and find his love?
    • “Women are snakes and liars, all of them: the more beautiful, the more conniving. Don’t let your guard down, or they will ruin you.”

      Yuel was only six years old when he witnessed his mother being put to death, for the heinous crime of daring to have an affair. For other women, such a folly mightn’t have been so lethal, but for Yuel’s ill-fated mother – the wife and queen of Indra’s tyrannical king, Khalil – it spelt her doom.

      As he witnesses his mother’s corpse decomposing beneath the intense sunlight, Yuel’s father offers him some sage words of wisdom: namely, not to trust women. They are, in Khalil’s words, wicked and deceitful, and becoming too attached can end in nothing save disaster.

      Outwardly, Yuel must swallow his sorrow, for fear of earning his father’s ire. Kings are not, after all, supposed to cry; even future kings such as him. In private, however, Yuel turns to his nursemaid, the kindly Safiya, for succour. Safiya is Yuel’s only ally in the palace: his father cold and distant; the servants deferential, brow-beaten, and kept silent through fear. Without Safiya, Yuel would be all alone...

      Yet she, too, abandons him, when Yuel grows old enough to no longer need a nursemaid to tend to him.

      Bereft and embittered, Yuel has nothing to look forward to, until – after a prolonged illness – his father eventually dies, and Yuel inherits the throne and the crown in his stead.

      No longer a young boy – Safiya’s ‘little prince’ – but a grown man, Yuel plots to win Safiya over once more. Unable to forget about her, and unable to trust any other woman, Yuel cannot conceive of a life without her. She did promise to stay with him, after all - and, single-minded to a fault, Yuel is determined to see this promise fulfilled at any cost.
    • Marie Mamiya reigns supreme.

      From the moment she appeared at the Royal Family Fitness Club, an ultra-luxurious gym jointly run by the Mamiya Zaibatsu and Sugimoto Pharmaceuticals, she was instantly in charge. The first thing she did was appoint her own personal trainer, passing over a building full of muscle-bound men in favor of our unimpressive protagonist.

      But she’ll train him into shape—in the pursuit of beauty.
    • The story of Snow starts when the main protagonist Izumo Kanata visits a small village called Ryujinmura (village of the dragon god) to help his cousin Tsugumi manage a local hotel with hot springs. In the village there is an old legend: In ancient times, the village is protected by the dragon goddess. However, one day the dragon goddesses fell in love with a human, which is strictly forbidden, and this incident finally caused the village to be always covered by snow after that. The game then tells the daily life of the protagonist in the village, and finally links the story to the legend of dragon goddess.
