"Don't split heaven in two ..."
It is thirty years since a world war put an end to space development.
Most of the human race is dead and incessant rain falls on the surface of the Earth.
The Junk Hunter earns his living from scavenging precious supplies from abandoned cities.
The Junk Hunter infiltrates a Sealed City, reputed to be the most dangerous places on Earth. In the center of the city, he discovers a pre-war Planetarium.
Here he is greeted by the companion robot, Yumemi Hoshino.
She sincerely believes that he is her first customer in thirty years.
She invites him on a "voyage to the stars," but the Planetarium projector malfunctions.
After a succession of disjointed conversations, the Junk Hunter grudgingly agrees to fix it.

Excellent Kinetic Novel
Can you call it a game if there are no choices to make? This visual novel is more novel than game, but it still is an engaging experience. There is full Japanese voice acting and English text, but the graphics are mostly static with minimal animation. But what is great is that this is from the same company that made great visual novels such as Kanon and Clannad, so you get a great story and cute characters. You can put it into auto-play mode and it takes about 4 hours. There’s also a “Novel” mode where the text is shown full screen. I’m hoping that they will bring over more of their visual novels to iOS in English.
Beautiful visual novel
Of course, what else to expect from Key but the greatest? This was an amazing quick read that brought tears to my eyes. It only took about 2-3 hours to finish, but that was with reading fast and not waiting for the dialogue to finish. I would guess it is around 4 hours if you do auto mode or wait for the dialogue to finish.
Not much CG at all, but the story definitely makes up for it, and it is very touching indeed. I would highly recommend for a good read.
Now, I'm off to go find a planetarium and cry :)
The anime is gonna have 5 eps and I just couldn't wait any longer. This visual novel made everything better, all of the detail and translation are perfect. The background music,the characters, and the music. Another masterpiece from Key 😭😄😄
