About the story:
On a small, lonely island in Ivoire Lives Ash, a Phantom who lost his life in battle, and Marona, who has the ability to communicate with Phantoms. Sometimes, Marona receives Bottlemails that float along the sea.
Marona, who lost her parents when she was very young, makes her living by completing the requests inside the Bottlemails as a Chroma, a person who accepts freelance work to solve problems for people. However, because of her abilities, the people call her the "Possessed." Even if she completes her work, some clients will hesitate to pay her the reward because of her reputation.
Still, Marona stays Optimistic and follows what her parents told her long ago: "Help people, and someday everyone will start to like you." Her goal is to save enough money to buy Phantom Isle, which she's currently renting. Like a subtle wave in the sea, the adventures of Marona and Ash are about to begin.
Grid-free battle system - With the grid-free battle system, each character can move freely to attack, cast spells, and even lift!
Over 400 different skills and magic spells - With hundreds of skills and magic spells to choose from, you can create and coordinate your characters to your liking and claim victory!
Fight alongside phantoms - Marona's unique ability, known as "Chartreuse Gale," allows her to interact with phantoms and bind their souls to different objects. By "confining" different objects, you grant phantoms a temporary body to help you fight.
