— Neptune

Neptune, also known as Purple Heart, is the main character of Hyperdimension Neptunia: The Animation. She acts as the CPU of the nation Planeptune and is also the older sister of Nepgear.

Her human form looks and acts childish in stark contrast with her goddess form which not only looks older, but is also more of a cool and mature type.




Neptune is the human form of the CPU Purple Heart. She is often considered to be energetic and dorky and most of all lazy. Her favorite food is custard pudding and she loves playing video games. While she enjoys playing all games, she especially loves Retro video games.

Neptune wears a choker around her neck with a light blue D-pad symbol on it and short sleeved mini hoodie with blue and purple lining around the sleeves and the hood. The hoodie is closed by a button emblem with a large N in the middle and has two strings that look like controller plugs. Underneath she wears a dark purple dress lined with light purple which zips up from the front and has pockets on both sides along with white lining along the bottom. Her socks are light blue and white striped thigh high socks with frills at the tops and her shoes are purple and blue with an N on them.


Neptune is a happy, excitable girl with a very strong sense of justice. Her ditzy personality causes her to be very careless at times which can either help her or land her into serious trouble. She makes friends rather easily due to her friendly nature and often gives them cute nicknames. People admire her optimistic outlook and confidence. She never gives up or backs down when the going gets tough and she makes sure to see her objective through to the very end.

Purple Heart


Purple Heart is the goddess form of Neptune. She is considered to be cool, collected, just, and overall much more mature in comparison to her human form. While the personality and appearance change is major between the two forms, she still retains some aspects of her human form albeit to a lesser extent.

Purple Heart has very long purple hair in twin tails and bright blue eyes with white pupils in the shape of power signs. She wears black hair clips with glowing blue D-Pad shapes. Her bodysuit is black and exposes cleavage and has purple and blue lining all around the torso and arms. The middle of the torso has purple mesh, allowing a vague vertical view of her stomach. She also wears thigh high boots with octagon patterns on the side at the very top; one filled it with purple and another just a white outline.


Purple Heart is a serious and mature person. She's often calm and rarely changes facial expressions. She is a very observant and intelligent female, thinking in a rational matter most of the time. She is almost the complete opposite of her human form in many aspects but her strong sense of justice and confidence remains unchanged. Despite her change in personality, there are times that where Purple Heart acts like her human form but to a lesser extent.

Hyperdimension Neptunia: The Animation

The Goddess (Neptune) of Planeptune

In Planeptune, the CPUs of Gamindustri have signed a friendship treaty, banning the use of military force to take Shares. A month has passed since then. Much to Histoire's dismay, Neptune dilly-dallies rather than doing her duties as a CPU. IF and Compa were on their way to see Neptune when they bump into someone who then gives them a flyer. Meanwhile, Histoire points out to Neptune and Nepgear that Planeptune's Shares are slowly declining, shown through the power of the Sharicite. Nepgear points out the reason might be because Neptune hasn't done anything to make the people like her lately. IF and Compa later arrives, and they both agree that Neptune needs to work harder. Much to her chagrin, Compa reveals the flyer's contents, which is a form of protest against the CPUs, resulting in Histoire into lecturing her. Wanting to escape from Histoire's lecture, Neptune decides to "get some schooling of goddess arts" from Noire.

Neptune and Nepgear travels on their way to Lastation. Noire initially declines to help, causing Neptune to tease her. Noire decides to help Neptune on learning the duties of a CPU. Seeing Neptune as a disturbance to her work, Noire takes IF's suggestion of teaching Neptune about being a goddess out on a mission. Neptune accepts the mission, a monster extermination job near Planeptune, that Noire picks for her. With Noire giving some advice on the way, the group travels to the quest's location. Noire hands the task of defeating the overrunning Dogoos in Nasuume Highlands to Neptune. Despite the overwhelming amount of Dogoos present, Neptune succeeds in defeating them all with Nepgear, Compa, and IF's help.

Noire decides to take care of the rest of the monsters and heads to Toruune Cave. In her HDD form, Noire defeats the monsters with ease. She hits a dead end and came across an Ancient Dragon. After taking a hit from another monster, she is reverted back to human form. Noire is overwhelmed until Neptune arrives and helps her. Neptune then transforms to HDD form and defeated the Ancient Dragon. As they exit the cave, a glowing, red object is shown inside the cave. Neptune and Noire finished the mission, earning the praise of the local people. Nearby Arfoire and Warechu is seen and were about to search for something in Toruune Cave.

In Planeptune, the Sharicite's power have increased due to gained Shares, but it is unknown whether it was due to Neptune completing her assigned mission or pictures of Nepgear that she accidentally sent and leaked on the Internet.

The Terrorist (Lickorrist) of Lowee

Neptune, Nepgear, Noire, and Uni go to Lowee to visit. Blanc is doing business with Vert when they get there and Neptune claims that they came to Lowee for its new amusement park, but Blanc replies that Histoire contacted her to teach Neptune what it means to be a goddess. They all decide to go to the amusement park, but Blanc stays behind.

The group has fun at the amusement park. Rom and Ram come across a row of rare reptile coins, which were apparently placed as a lure by Underling and Trick. The twins are captured without hesitation.

Neptune and the group goes back to tell Blanc about her sisters' capture. As Blanc grieves over her sisters' capture, Abnes appears to interview Blanc on her show, Abnes Channel, which is broadcasted all over Lowee. Neptune and Vert drive off Abnes and her crew and suddenly, Blanc collapses.

Vert discloses the details about her proposal with Blanc, which Vert would share Leanbox's satellite imagery service, Terra View, to Blanc if she provides photogenic data of Lowee. At the same time, she is able to pinpoint the location of Rom and Ram's kidnappers, which is located in a ride under construction at the same amusement park they were at recently. Neptune and the other make haste to go rescue the twins, however most of the work ends up being done by the others and Neptune never has the chance to get any action in.

A Weekend (Girls' Night) in Leanbox

Neptune and her friends attend a concert held by 5pb. in Leanbox. After the concert the group wonder where Vert is? They find Vert in her room playing on her MMO, Four Goddesses Online. Neptune wonders if her gaming makes her worse then her to which Noire and Blanc say not a chance. Vert was supposed to have them over for a concert then a party but she is busy with her game. Noire decides the group should prepare for the party anyways.

Neptune is caught slacking off during preparations by Noire and she was promptly put back to work.

During the party, Neptune and Noire are the first to be given the chance to try out Vert's new console. Their appearance changes into Dogoos and they fight each other by bumping into each other. Neptune gets the upper hand in this play fight.

Vert gets a report that a lot of monsters have appeared in a waste disposal plant in the Zune district so the CPUs transform to clean up the monsters. When they arrive Purple Hearts warns them not to charge in headfirst but the other Hearts do not listen turning it into a competition on who can get rid of the monsters the quickest. Purple Heart comes in last in the competition. After eliminating the monsters wires pop up and bind the Hearts.

Arfoire and Warechu appear and throw red crystals revealed to be anti-crystals at the Hearts. They form a tetrahedral shaped prison. The Hearts feel weakened as the wires constrict them further. Purple Heart suspects that the crystal is responsible and throws her sword at the crystal attempting to destroy it. The sword disappears as Arfoire reveals the anti-crystals cuts the ties between the CPUs and their Share Crystals. Warechu takes pictures of the Goddesses with the intention of spreading them throughout the internet to crash their shares. Neptune and the Goddesses can only struggle.

The Resolve (Turn) of the Younger Sisters

Eventually the Goddesses revert to their human form. Neptune notices Nepgear arriving to see Neptune in a bind. Neptune and the other CPUs remained trapped by Arfoire. Neptune complains about her boredom. Neptune also calls her various names mispronouncing Arfoire. Neptune wants to play some games asking Arfoire for games. Arfoire ignores her.

Neptune also thinks Nepgear does not have it in her to fight Arfoire. Vert tells her to believe in their sisters.

The Resonance (Limit Break) of the Goddesses

Neptune and the other Goddesses are trapped in the prison. Anti-energy starts to overflow and attempts to kill the Goddess. Neptune and the Goddess hold hands to resist the anti-energy. Their belief in each other transforms in share energy which starts to resonate. This provides the hope the sisters need to rescue them. Neptune gives Nepgear a long-deserved hug.

Planeptune's shares did not crash too much due to low amount of expectations people had of Neptune in the first place. Afterwards Neptune decides to have a picnic with Compa, IF and Nepgear because she wants to live her life to her fullest. Peashy appears, surprising the picnicking group as she recognizes IF and Compa.

The Secret (Your-Eyes-Only) of Lastation

Neptune and her Basilicom have taken Peashy in for about three weeks now. Neptune tries to play on her games but Peashy, wanting to play with Neptune pulls and destroys the power plug. Neptune chases Peashy around before being tackled by Peashy.

Neptune then complains to Vert about coming over too often to bond with Nepgear in a "sisterly way". Vert says she has something for Neptune which she assumes to be Vert's attempt to seduce her like Nepgear. Vert clarifies that Blanc has contacted Neptune.

Blanc contacts Neptune and she heads to Lastation to discuss a security breach. She lands on Noire after being distracted by Peashy reverting her transformation. Neptune joins the other Goddesses in tracking down the hacker after Zilge pinpoints the location of the hacker.

They find the hacker in his hideout. He reveals himself as "Anny" (Anonydeath) then reveals his collection of Noire pictures through many monitors. Neptune comments how cute Noire looks her cosplay. Anonydeath tries to escape using his monitors to attack the Goddesses. He is stopped by the CPU Candidates and Peashy while the Goddesses catch up to him.

Returning back to Lastation's Basilicom, a girl lands on Noire. When everyone asks who she is? She replies she is Plutia, the CPU of Planeptune.

The Fruits (Deep Purple) of Revenge

Neptune and her friends has dinner with the newly arrived Plutia. When Compa toast to the new CPU of Planeptune, Neptune complains about how it sounds like Plutia is replacing Neptune. Peashy snipes Neptune's meat and Compa offers eggplant as a substitute. Neptune says complains about her hatred of eggplants. She says that eggplants drains her strength. Arfoire and Warechu overheard Neptune's "weakness" about eggplants. Histoire tries to lecture Neptune on being picky about food but is interrupted by her suddenly ringing like a telephone.

Histoire and her Ultra Dimension counterpart discuss Plutia coming over to retrieved a large spike of energy that left her dimension. Meanwhile, Compa distributes pudding as dessert. Peashy takes Neptune's pudding. When they eat their pudding, Peashy splatters her pudding, as Neptune laughs, Peashy punches her.

Histoire relays her message to everyone as they should vigilant for a large energy source. IF decides to bring Compa out for work and patrol about the energy source. Everyone else stays in the Basilicom, relaxing. Plutia makes a Neptune doll. Plutia says she'll make Peashy and Nepgear one too. During the process of starting to make a Peashy doll, she falls asleep. Peashy also grows sleepy.

Nepgear rushes to a sleeping Neptune to show her a picture of a captured IF tied up on a pole, she received in her N-Gear. Attached with the picture is a map. Neptune and Nepgear transform, bring Plutia along and follow the map to rescue their friends.

They arrive at an eggplant farm run by Arfoire. Neptune demands the release of IF. Arfoire sends out eggplant monsters to attack. Neptune cannot bear to smell the eggplants and her transformation ends causing Nepgear to be unable to fall as she cannot carry both Plutia and Neptune.

The monsters cause trouble to Nepgear with Neptune unable to support her. Plutia becomes irritated smashing her Neptune doll to the ground. Plutia transforms into her HDD form, Iris Heart attacks Arfoire. During this Neptune decides to stop running and clear the monsters. Nepgear rescues IF. Arfoire then combines herself with eggplants to become "Eggfoire". Due to the fact that she no longers looks like an eggplant, Neptune is able to fight without a problem and Arfoire is defeated by the Planeptune Goddesses. Plutia then saves Compa from Warechu.

When they return Neptune promises to not allow a certain someone to transform too often. She also is pleased to have another person hate eggplants, IF.

There, they find a beach where mysterious light grass seem to cover the private parts of people. Neptune decides to strip and play on the beach. Eventually, Nepgear, Plutia and Vert join in the fun. Neptune attempts to convince Noire and Blanc to join through the grass at the former. Blanc suspects something and uses her hammer to create wind to blow the grass away revealing that Neptune had her swimsuit and was fooling the two all along.

Neptune says she does not remember what happened after the drink and Plutia remarks Neptune was very cute sending shivers down Neptune's spine. They find the artillery battery which seems to prepare to fire. It fires bubbles and a party begins. After a fun day at the beach, Neptune returns with souvenits and a batch of pudding with names labeled on it to resolve the morning's pudding problem. She is sad to find out that Peashy has left with her parents.
