Older Neptune's appearance is more or less the same as the smaller Neptune's. She has long lilac hair with bangs that reach down to her collar bone and purple eyes. In her hair she wears black hair-clips in the shape of D-pads and around her neck is a choker that has a light blue D-pad symbol on it. She wears a mostly black one-piece parka dress that has a purple hood, strings that look like controller plugs, and two huge black and purple pockets with blue circles on them.
The sleeves have two light blue stripes going all the way down while the front of the parka only contains one. The ends of the sleeves and the bottom of the parka have black and purple stripes. The zipper emblem and the back of the parka has a purple letter "N" to represent the first letter of her name. Unlike the other Neptune, she does not wear thigh-high socks and her shoes are black and purple. Another thing to note is the fact she wears a black and purple gun holster on her left thigh that matches the rest of her outfit.
This Neptune shares most of the smaller Neptune's traits, such as an innocent and simple minded way of thinking and a hatred of eggplants. Generally, her personality is in between the Hyper Dimension Neptune, bearing some aspects of both her normal and HDD forms.
According to Rie Tanaka, Older Neptune acts more like a high school teenager.
Neptune and Croire are continuing their dimension hopping adventures. They end up in the Heart Dimension. The two of them run into a girl who says she is bored. She want to get a console. The girl tells them it is a one-of-a-kind console. Neptune asks if they can play together with it. The girl says they can. Neptune eagerly accepts the quest and the girl tells them it is in Planeptune below their Basilicom. Croire has the co-ordinates set and the two warp away.
In the Basilicom they retrieve the console and want to warp back. Unfortunately, Croire is out of power and asks to be let free as the Nep-Note drains her strength. Neptune tells her no, as problems always arise when she is let free and complains about her being useless. Croire gets upset but Neptune ignores her as she makes her wait out of the Basilicom into an alleyway. Neptune takes a look at the console and notices that a girl is sealed inside of it.
Croire does not believe but Neptune insists on it and clicks a button. A portal is formed sucking Neptune and Croire into it.
Zero Dimension Neptunia Z: Twilight of the Desperate CPU
Neptune was attempting the catch a skyfish but notices the ground is not there. She falls down, telling those below her to watch out. Neptune crashes down but is glad that her body is sturdy. She introduces herself to one of the girls and asks for her name. Neptune is happy to find that the girl is named Nepgear as her name also includes "Nep". Neptune praises another girl's device for being cool. The girl, Uzume thinks Neptune has a good eye. Finally she finds a hilarious looking fish.
Neptune notices the monster the girls were fighting. The monster gets angry at the situation and declares that she, Arfoire will destroy them. Neptune finds her name hilarious then makes fun of her. Neptune finally takes a look at the situation and decides to help the girls who were fighting Arfoire. Neptune decides to heal them with her Nep Bull VII and assist them in defeating Arfoire. After Arfoire was defeated, the girls transforms back so Neptune wonders if they are CPUs which they are.
Neptune then notes that Nepgear looks similar to her and if she had a little sister, it would look exactly like her. Uzume then decides to beat up Arfoire a little bit more. Arfoire pleads for her life and notes that this is against the law. Neptune defends Arfoire and refuses to let Uzume beat her up. The reason is Neptune already decided to put Arfoire into her specimen book, the Nep-Note since she thinks of Arfoire as a rare poisonous butterfly. She seals Arfoire up while explaining that it can keep the specimen in the same condition while allowing the user to use the specimen's powers.
Once Arfoire is sealed, she demands her freedom. Neptune tapes her up and closes the book silencing Arfoire. The group then invite Neptune to their party and main base. They mention there will be food which is good for Neptune as her food supply ran out. In the base, after a meal, Neptune confirms her ability to travel between dimensions and agrees to take Nepgear home. However, she needs to find Crostie as she was the specimen with that ability. She also explains to Nepgear that she came from a dimension where "Plu-something" was the CPU.
Afterwards Nepgear wonders if she can this Neptune "older sister". Neptune allows her to then falls in love with being called older sister and asks her to repeat this for a while. After that, the girls have a barrel bath then rest for the night, as they need to find Crostie tomorrow.
Neptune wakes up to the voice of Arfoire complaining that she is hungry. Neptune decides to feed her some weeds but Arfoire hears her saying this and refuses. Neptune then gets hungry as a result of Arfoire's hunger. The rest of the group wakes up and Neptune asks what is for breakfast. The breakfast is cooked by Uzume and a combination of fish and vegetables collected by Nepgear. Neptune wonders what the vegetables are and Uzume says they are eggplants. She tries some and absolutely hates it. Umio reminds her of her age but Neptune still hates it. Arfoire offers to eat the eggplant for her. So Neptune allows her to eat.
Neptune then announces Arfoire's torture session, which is really just a interrogation session. The group wants to know Arfoire's purpose. She happily tells them that she wants to kill the CPUs and destroy the world. Neptune finds that illogical as she will die as well. Arfoire just finds Neptune stupid that she cannot understand her noble cause. The two argue and Arfoire refuses to ever talk to Neptune again.
Later, Neptune asks the group what is for lunch. It is the same for breakfasts. The group tries again to make Neptune eat eggplants but she refuses and runs away. Arfoire offers to eat the eggplants for her. She finds it weird that Arfoire is trying to talk to her again but is happy to take her offer up.
Later Arfoire breaks free from the specimen book. Neptune is surprised to see Arfoire as her witch form as she only knew her in the beast form. Neptune blames the eggplants and Arfoire makes her getaway. Neptune apologizes to the group as she did not know one could escape from her Nep-Note. Neptune, Uzume and Umio all agree to never try to eat foods they do not like. Nepgear wonders if there is a chance the three of them can try to get used to their hated foods. The three agree there is no chance.
Neptune picks up a stick and drops it. She claims that Arfoire is in the direction the stick drops so the group follows it. As the party continues, Nepgear and Uzume detect share energy. There must be a share crystal nearby. Umio explains to Neptune that it is a power-up item for CPUs. The group heads over the share energy. They find Arfoire and Crostie who clarifies her name is Croire. Croire asks Neptune to join them as they destroy the world. Neptune declines mentioning that destroying the world is no joke and more importantly Neptune does not like Arfoire. Croire says Neptune is infected with the group's boredom.
Arfoire then transforms to her True Deity of Sin form. Nepgear explains that the previous battle was against her first Deity of Sin form. This form is her strongest form and their chances of winning are low. The girls fight the form and manage to win. Arfoire asks Croire the power of the CPU from another dimension. Nepgear tells Uzume and Neptune to stop this but they fail to. With the power, Arfoire revives Dark Purple. Uzume tries to take share crystal Arfoire lured them with but Arfoire mortally wounds her when she tries.
She orders Dark Purple to destroy the area around them. The group carries Uzume and flees. They return to the base and Nepgear performs emergency treatment on Uzume. Meanwhile, Neptune decides to tape up Croire's wings as punishment and seal her inside the Nep-Note for the events earlier. Nepgear then leaves and Neptune wonders if she should as someone needs to watch after Uzume. Nepgear has left Umio and the monsters for that job. Nepgear then says she needs to find "Oratorio's Tangram" and "Jingu Cherry Blossoms" for more medicine.
Neptune says Croire can get out of the book if she helps the girls with their quest. Croire enthusiastically agrees to this and explains that the items the girls are looking for are drops from monsters. The girls hunt the monster and gain the ingredients. Croire asks for her freedom and Neptune says no as she never promised her. Croire claims she tricked her. Neptune claims she took advantage of her.
Neptune goes to administer her final treatment on Uzume. Neptune goes to scout a bit more. After the treatment, Neptune reports back from scouting. She discovers that Arfoire has merged with the Dark CPU and is coming to the base in about a day. Uzume wakes up and tries to tells the monsters to evacuate. Nepgear does it in her stead telling her she needs to rest so that she can be ready for the fight with Arfoire the next day. Uzume agrees and Nepgear leaves to give the orders. Uzume asks Neptune for a favor but asks that she keep it a secret from Nepgear.
The favor Uzume asked of Neptune was to create as much Nep Bull VII for Uzume to drink. Neptune creates a barrel and lets her drink it. The next day Uzume reveals this to Nepgear. Nepgear questions the fact that Neptune actually managed to create a barrel of Nep Bull VII. Neptune just laughs it off. Regardless, the girls get back to business. The fused Arfoire is accompanied by a horde of monsters. Nepgear and Neptune are to divert the monster into some ruins when Arfoire passes them. That way Uzume can use her sharing field. Neptune brings Croire along as she wants her to record the history of the girls saving the Zero Dimension.
They try to enact this plan but Arfoire can nullify the share energy. Umio then arrives with the monsters and a whole bunch of share crystals. Neptune comments on the fact that while, the share crystals are good, the fact there are a bunch of baby bugs and dogoos kind of gross her out. However, even that is not enough. Histoire and her counterpart then offers Planeptune's shares. The two Neptunes encourage Nepgear and Uzume. Nepgear is able to resonate Planeptune shares with Uzume and they create the sharing field. The small Neptune then arrives to take part in the final fight against Arfoire. Neptune comments that her smaller self is incredibly cute.
The girls then engage in their final fight against Arfoire. They come out victorious and Arfoire's Dark Purple body collapses. Neptune again fawns over her cuter self. Her smaller counterpart is glad that if she grows up, she becomes more developed. Croire then leaves and Neptune quickly runs off after her. The Zero Dimension had been successfully saved.
Hyper Dimension Neptunia G: The Golden Leaders, Reconstructors of Gamindustri
Neptune appears at the end of the battle between the CPUs and Gold Third. She tries to stop something but then Gamindustri is rewritten.
Neptune meets a woman with a really big chest. The woman asks her if she is traveling but Neptune says she has work to do. She really wishes she can find a nice place to eat. The woman gives Neptune some locations to visit in Leanbox. Neptune also asks if she can feel her chest. The woman agrees and Neptune is super impressed with it. For that she gives the woman an item then leaves.
Neptune assists Arfoire, S-Sha, Dogoo Man and Dogoo Lady in carrying 1000000 ran pigs to the Golden Summit. Neptune reappears in the Golden Summit playing around with ran-pigs. Arfoire asks her to intercept Nepgear and Vert.
Vert is exhausted from climbing the tower. She asks for a drink so Neptune hands her one. While Vert is having a drink, Neptune tries to have a chat with Nepgear. Neptune remembers the big chested woman from the hotel as well. Neptune then tells them her mission as a member of the Secret Organization AffimaX to intercept the two.
They fight and after a brief battle Neptune lets them go. She was impressed with Nepgear's battle ability and how much it improved since the Zero Dimension. Neptune does note that the two must have grinded on the monsters in the summit. Nepgear asks her to let them go. Neptune agrees shocking the two. She explains that she is letting them go because she was told to stall them, not defeat them. She was also not given a time specified to stall them so she feels enough time has passed and leaves.
Neptune actually snuck a ran-pig out. The ran-pig asks her if he is going to be shipped. She says he is not and tells him to run along.
In the end of all this, Arfoire scolds Neptune for forgetting one of the ran-pigs. Neptune happily says she must have miscounted. She also reminds Arfoire, it does not matter as they have acquired the item they wanted. Arfoire agrees as they have the cable. Neptune wonders if it is a fake cable but Arfoire is sure that it is real.
Affimojas is happy that his ad revenue has increased by ten fold from last month. At this rate he can pay off the battleship. Arfoire is surprised that the battleship was bought on a loan. Affimojas tells her that it is impossible to pay off a battleship in one payment. Affimojas explains that he and Steamax researched a year for the best repayment plan. Neptune says that no one wants to hear about loans and just want to play a game.
Arfoire does not care and asks if he has all the parts. He has and demands 5 trillion credits in advance for it. Since Neptune and Arfoire can't pay that they decide to take it from him. Neptune attempts to steal the parts but misses one. The two decide to fight Affimojas for the last part.
Unfortunately Steamax shows up and gets ready to fight. Neptune is impressed by the appearance of the ninja. Arfoire finds this annoying and decides to retreat. Neptune opens up a portal with her Nep-Note to retreat with Arfoire.
Heart Dimension Neptunia H: Trilogy Finale: Into Legend
Neptune is happy to see Nepgear, Uzume and the others as she arrives with Kurome in the northeast part of the Zero Dimension. Unfortunately she has to leave so the two of them retreat to a dungeon. When she notices Nepgear's group following them then cornering them, she complains about how persistent they are.
Uzume tells her that she is like a dog, once she bites down she won't let go. Neptune then complains about the party ganging up on them. B-Sha tells her that it is all a matter of getting the highest chance to save the CPUs. Luckily Kurome summons a monster to fight the party. Neptune uses her Nep-Note to create a portal for their escape. The two of them escape into the Heart Dimension.
Later Kurome calls Neptune and tells her that the portal was left open. Neptune says she must have messed up. Kurome tells her to drop the act and summons Arfoire. She tells Arfoire to take the Nep-Note from Neptune then dispose of her. Neptune tells her to not to be mad nervously before running off.
Neptune flees from Arfoire into a dungeon. She is blasted by Arfoire and complains to her. Arfoire is very glad that she can eliminate Neptune and mocks her thinking that she could ever fool Uzume and keep Croire from her. Neptune wishes she had her Nep-Note to escape. Arfoire closes in for the kill but Nepgear, Uzume and Uni arrive transformed to defend her. The three help Neptune kill Arfoire and Neptune is glad about Nepgear and Uzume's efforts. Uni asks for her recognition but Neptune apologizes and asks for her name again.
Neptune then collapses and finds herself awake after tasting a horrible potion. She wonders if Nepgear and the others are going to torture her and do things to her that cannot be seen in a family-friendly game. They assure her that they are not and ask for her story. Firstly, she confirms that the other Uzume's name is indeed Uzume, which she learned about shortly after the adventures in the Zero Dimension. Neptune admits that she was trying to sabotage the other Uzume who she decides to name Kurome Ankokuboshi to avoid confusion.
She then explains her first encounter with her and acquiring the Swirl Console and admits the encounter may have been planned by Croire. Neptune also tells them she knows where the CPUs are being held. She finally notes that the Heart Dimension, as what she has heard from Kurome is someone's soul who was turned into a dimension.
Uzume apologizes for asking her so soon but she wants Neptune to lead them there. Neptune agrees. Older Neptune gives the mission more details, firstly the CPUs are asleep and trapped inside Dark CPUs which are in the center of the Heart Dimension. Ram says the rescue must be easy as all they have to do is get to the center of the Hyeart Dimension. Older Neptune says the Heart Dimension won't make easy as the Heart Dimension can materialize dreams. Since the CPUs are asleep, their dreams can materialize. In addition, Kurome can mess with the dreams.
Older Neptune believes Kurome's goal is to get the CPUs to fall into delusion like the Gold Third. Uni does not believe that the CPUs will fall with a nightmare. K-Sha warns her that Kurome does not need to give them nightmares but pleasant dreams that target someone's deepest desire. Kurome is incredibly deceptive.
The CPU rescue mission makes to the dungeon. Older Neptune announces that it is further. The mission finally makes it to the inner part of the dungeon to find each of the CPUs trapped inside the Dark CPUs. Uni notes that the Dark CPUs are bigger than she imagined. K-Sha wonders how are they going to free the CPUs. B-Sha wants to use an anti-surface missile. K-Sha is worried about Noire getting hurt. Older Neptune tells her that freeing them by breaking out is the only choice but normal attacks don't work on a Dark CPU.
Kurome Ankokuboshi and Croire arrives. Kurome notes that if she had known older Neptune would have lead them here, she would have killed her earlier. The mission makes demands for the CPUs and her reason for toying with the Gold Third. Kurome says the purpose of messing with the Gold Third was entertainment because if they fell into delusion, then the world would be chaotic.
Kurome says that it is time to kill the mission. Uzume asks her how she intends to do that as she has Share Energy. Kurome instead asks Uzume to become one with her as they were originally one person. Uzume gets confused so Kurome decides to return all her memories to Uzume. Uzume struggles to cope with the new memories, so older Neptune and Umio try to help her up.
Kurome says it will take time to process everything so she decides to explain everything. Firstly, CPUs are essentially born from people's wishes. However, for Uzume, her people grew to hate her, they sealed her away then forgot about her. Uzume vowed revenge and just like that, her source of power shifted from Share Energy to Negative Energy generated by negative emotions. Using her delusion power coupled with negative emotions of her people, Uzume deleted all trace of herself from her people.
In turn, the people needed a new CPU, Uranus. Kurome announces that she is a CPU of Planeptune, Uzume Tennouboshi and demands they all kneel to her, increasing the gravity of the place forcing the mission to kneel. Kurome then explains that both the Zero Dimension and Heart Dimension are born from her dream of herself destroying Gamindustri, with the Zero Dimension serving only as an entrance to the Heart Dimension.
This is possible because her power is to turn dreams into reality. This is why Planeptune hated her. Kurome tells the mission that she wanted to break out of the seal, but she could not. However, if her dream created dimensions, she break out of their dimensional boundaries instead of the seal. As she began to attempt this method, a part of Uzume split off from her and tried to stop the Dark CPUs trying to break the boundaries.
But that was good for her, as once Uzume battled the Dark CPU and started to gain Share Energy, she did as well. With the Share Energy, Kurome can observe the Hyper Dimension and appear as a sort of hologram but that was enough. Kurome decided to send Arfoire out to gain even more Share Energy. Kurome then came up with the idea to fuse the dimensions instead breaking out of the boundaries or seal.
Kurome says that the Gold Third are also to thank. The Golden Summits, that were created give a rare signal in multidimensional space. Their existence was thanks to the CPU Shift Period lowering the faith in the goddess, good enough for her to write the CPUs out of existence. Gamindustri, however needed protectors and created the Golden Summits.
The fused dimensions will allow her to physically materialize the Dark CPUs. Kurome notes that with her Negative Energy, Uzume's Share Energy, Croire's power that came from another CPU, she can rule Gamindustri forever. She asks Uzume to become one with her again. Uzume angrily refuses.
Kurome says it is a shame and will kill her along with the rest of the mission. Kurome creates clones of Arfoire and explains that this is her dream, creating things from her memory is easy. She admits that this gave her quite a bit of trouble in the past but serves as a perfect pawn. The candidates transform ready to fight to rescue their sisters.
Kurome tells them not to get too excited as the CPUs just fell into delusion and she allows them to awaken. The CPUs announce their intentions to hurt their sisters and friends then transform. Neptune gets next to her sister and transforms to start strangling her. Nepgear asks why to which Neptune replies she hates her and how she can order Neptune around all the time. Neptune tightens her grip as Nepgear struggles but hesitates as Nepgear makes sounds of agony.
Older Neptune intercepts forcing Neptune to let go. Older Neptune does not want to watch the horrid scene anymore. The candidates pull back and transform back. Older Neptune wants to escape but Nepgear notes that the CPUs are somewhere in there and she won't let it end like this. She tells older Neptune that her sister did hesitate. Older Neptune and everyone agree with Nepgear. The mission begins their battle with the CPUs to bring them back to their senses.
After the battle, Uzume wonders why the CPUs aren't back yet. They should not be wanting to hurt their sisters or anything else they love. The CPUs begin to regain their senses and apologize for their earlier actions. Kurome forces more Negative Energy to the CPUs.
The CPUs try their best to resist but are in pain. Kurome tells Uzume that she cannot win. Uzume asks for everyone to pray for the CPUs' return to their senses and she will create a Share Crystal for that purpose. Kurome says it is impossible but Uzume tells her not underestimate her illusion power.
Uzume with the faith of the everyone creates the crystal and transforms the CPUs to their Next Form. Kurome wonders what are those forms? Croire can't believe that they can neutralize all the Negative Energy.
Kurome tells them not to get carried away as she still has the Dark CPUs then unleashes Dark Green. Uzume activates her Sharing Field with the Share Crystal. The party destroy Dark Green but find Kurome smiling. Kurome says that she will win and asks them to check the dimensional co-ordinates. Nepgear checks and notices the dimension much closer to the Hyper Dimension but she says it has only been a short time.
Kurome explains it is because they are in the Heart Dimension, she can bring the Heart Dimension closer to the Hyper Dimension with no resistance. She notes that the dimension are close enough for her to materialize, at least for a short time. Croire creates a portal as the two begin to leave to the Hyper Dimension. Kurome leaves a bunch of clones of the CPUs for them to fight. She says she created them to influence their dreams but does not need them anymore. The party can dispose of them in however they wish. The two leaves.
Older Neptune is angry that Croire would leave her. Neptune tells the candidates and Gold Third to follow Kurome as the CPUs will deal with the fakes. The candidates and Gold Third take their leave after Uzume hands them a Share Crystal in case Kurome has anymore Dark CPUs. IF and Compa stay behind to help the CPUs. Neptune then thank Uzume once again and the two begin to catch up. Older Neptune interrupts the two and says they must deal with the fakes.
The fakes have a parody of the CPU's personality, which causes the CPUs to transform back. The two Neptunes wonder if it is some debuff caused by their weird dialogue and movement. Compa asks if IF is going to scold Neptune but IF says that scolding two Neptunes is a waste of calories. Compa wonders if she can make a diet drink out of that. Umio says diets are important but are they ready to fight the fakes. Neptune says she is ready to Umiotaro. They prepare for battle but Umio interrupts her to remind her that his name is Umio. Neptune says oh.
The girls manage to defeat the fakes and Neptune notes that fakes are never a match for the real. Uzume feels sad hearing that and Noire nudges Neptune. Neptune quickly apologizes to Uzume and Uzume forgives her and understands. Croire returns to congratulate the CPUs and group for defeating some many fakes. Older Neptune is surprised to see Croire again. Croire asks them what are they planning to do after knowing everything.
They plan to defeat Kurome. Croire reminds them that if they do then the Heart Dimension and Zero Dimension disappear getting rid of Uzume, Umio and all of Zero Dimension's inhabitants. Older Neptune is not happy with the two choices and Croire asks her if she was paying attention. Their choices boil down to letting Kurome do as she pleases which will screw over the Hyper Dimension or stopping her with the consequences that Croire previous talked about.
Older Neptune says Croire is cruel and they cannot choose. Neptune remarks that this must be the part where a third option shows up in a few seconds. Older Neptune agrees and says that the option will likely lead to their happy ending. Croire wonders if the two Neptunes only have games in their head. Well she says they better choose soon as the dimensions are getting closer together.
Umio wonders why must the world being so cruel to Uzume. Croire says it is just Uzume's punishment as she nearly destroyed the Hyper Dimension. Umio wants to know more so Croire reminds him of the strange reports that Nepgear found in the Zero Dimension. Since they were slow on the uptake, Croire decided to repair the data but they never figured it out that the perpetrator was Uzume herself.
Uzume runs away after hearing this. Croire says that Uzume just ran away. The party pursues Uzume and leaves.
Older Neptune and the others follow Uzume's trail to Tangram Road. Umio assures them that Uzume is in here as his dorsal fin is picking up Uzume. Older Neptune hopes she is not planning on doing anything drastic.
Deeper within the dungeon, Older Neptune found Uzume. Neptune congratulates her and praises her eyes. Older Neptune is flattered but says Neptune is better being a CPU. Neptune says she is too humble and she should say "Cause I'm the protagonist! Eat that". Older Neptune thinks that is fun. Neptune says they should say together which they do.
Noire says she feels her sanity fading. Blanc says the two Neptunes are not important right now but Uzume is. Vert wonders what they can say to her. Umio volunteers to talk to her as he has known her for a long time and is not a CPU so it may be easier for her to be honest. Older Neptune and the others stay hidden from Uzume sight. A flashback of the past appears behind her.
Histoire announces that she will be working with a grassroots youth in a publicity campaign. The youth is eager and happy to work with Uzume. The youth asks a few kids ahead to address Uzume politely if she passes by with a cart. The kids do so. A middle aged man wants to live in Planeptune but the youth cannot grant his wish. Another man says that is just how it works. The youth tells Uzume that they should work together to build a wonderful nation.
Another man comments on the recent events of Uzume losing control of her illusion power. The grassroots youth wonders if there is anything they can do to help Uzume. Some youths comment on the failed assassination attempts. They think the nation will collapse if Uzume keeps ruling. The youth expresses his relief that Uzume is still alive. An old woman wonders why the world is so cruel to Uzume as she earnestly tried her best. A young sobbingly asks her grandmother if there is anything to save Uzume.
An assassin finds Uzume and makes his attempt. The youth gets in the way and gets fatally wounded. He tells Uzume that he is glad she is okay that she should not cry. The youth says his wish is to see that Uzume's dreams come true and be there with her when it happens. Afterwards Histoire accepts Uzume's request to be sealed. She promises that she will find a way to seal her illusion power so she can comeback and that they will only part for a short time.
Uzume is glad to have remembered all her memories. Neptune interrupts this moment. Umio wonders what is going on as the mood was very good. Older Neptune says she objects to the memories. Noire claims they were trying to slip an important plot point by. Umio asks if she means Histoire. Vert says it is about the youth. His wish is the same as Umio's. Older Neptune concludes that Umio is the youth. IF says that the youth protected Uzume and lost his life but the emotions and regrets of the two allowed him to reincarnate.
Neptune admits that her series is prolific but for actual romance plot to occur is something she was supposed to avoid. Older Neptune says she may have to eat Umio out of the main cast. Neptune says he cannot allow the series to have a game where Umio has a harem to occur. Uzume asks them how they were able to see her flashback.
Older Neptune says the flashback was projected right behind her. Uzume asks them to kill her due to embarrassment.
Umio asks Uzume if she is calm. Uzume assures him that she is but not she cannot choose between the Hyper Dimension or the Heart Dimension as she grew to like both of them. Neptune says she has discovered the third option. Older Neptune is amazed and asks her what idea is. Neptune says if Negative Energy made the other Uzume evil, who she decides to call Kurome Ankokuboshi to avoid confusion then they could purify her with Share Energy like what they did with Affimojas.
The CPUs agree that the plan makes senses. The problem is the amount of Negative Energy that needs to be neutralized. Kurome has absorbed Negative Energy for decades. The worst case scenario means the CPUs lose their Share Energy. Neptune says it is the only way to save both dimensions. Umio asks Uzume for her opinion. She wants to try the plan and will back away from a tough gamble.
Since Uzume is okay with Vert says the CPUs are okay with it. However, Vert asks how can they do it. Older Neptune says that since they can do it because it is the Heart Dimension. Blanc wonders what Older Neptune means. She clarifies that the Heart Dimension is literally Uzume's heart. As a result, if they purify this world, they purify Uzume. With the plan set, the party is off to purify the Heart Dimension.
Older Neptune and the party enters DreamPass Area. Umio asks older Neptune whether they have reached the center of the Heart Dimension. She says they have not and it is deeper. In the depths of this dungeon, they find a giant shattered Share Crystal floating in the distance. Uzume asks what is it. Older Neptune explains to her that it is the crystallization of the Share Energy sealed with Uzume's body when she was sealed. Croire arrives to add that it is the reason that there are share crystals in the Zero Dimension. Older Neptune is surprised to see her old friend. Croire greets older Neptune. Blanc adds that the crystal is likely the reason why Uzume is still alive despite the world forgetting about her.
Older Neptune says if Croire is here then she intends to get in their way. Croire says that is true and complains about Kurome Ankokuboshi being a slave driver. All Croire wants to do is record history but Kurome wants her to defend the crystal. Croire finishes saying if Kurome wants it protected, she should do it herself. Older Neptune asks Croire to stop what she is doing or both dimensions are going to be destroyed. Croire tells her that she should have read her already. She has recorded the beginning and ends of countless worlds already. She cannot record history inside older Neptune's Nep-Note.
Older Neptune understands but the problem she is getting involved in its destruction rather than recording it. Older Neptune says she cannot let Croire stay free any longer. Croire says she thinks older Neptune just wants to use her dimension hopping ability. Older Neptune is shocked that she knows and tries to play that off as untrue. Croire says that she is too obvious and she asks if Neptune was also intentionally sabotaging AffimaX. Older Neptune tries an obvious attempt to feign ignorance. Croire concludes that she has simply been playing the role of the clown the whole time.
Noire says Croire took long enough to figure it out. Neptune may be happy go lucky and spouts nonsensical meta-jokes but she has always been. Neptune cuts her with a scream. Noire and Croire are shocked. Croire tells her to stop yelling as she was not talking to her. Neptune goes on a huge rant about how she is the protagonist but her role has not been important. The rest of the party tries to calm her down to no avail.
Croire wonders what is wrong with the party but she says they will not get in her way in recording history. Croire summons Dark White. Uzume says Dark White is no match for them due to her Sharing Field. Uzume transforms and activates her sharing field. The party makes short work of Dark White. Croire can't believe the Dark CPU was so easily beaten. Older Neptune sneaks up to Croire and captures her in her Nep-Note then announces Croire's defeat.
Croire demands that she be let out to no avail. With no obstacles in the way, Neptune thinks it is time to attempt to purify the world. Umio says they are deep in the dungeon and the plan should work. Neptune asks the CPUs for all their shares and everyone to pray. Neptune attempts the purification. Nothing seems to have happened. Neptune says that there was a reaction but the Share Energy was all neutralized. Neptune thinks they should meet up with Nepgear and revise their plan.
The CPU Candidates and Gold Third rejoin the party in the Heart Dimension base. Nepgear explains that they first lost the console but thanks to everyone's help they got it back. In addition, they were concerned with the Dark CPU but the Share Crystal sorted that out for them. Nepgear wonders how were things with them as they came here because they followed Kurome but she escaped.
IF wonders what she means by follow. Ram says that they though Kurome would use Croire but she ran and eventually they lost sight of her. Noire asks how they can run from the Hyper Dimension all the way here. Uni explains that Kurome broke the rubble that Neptune created and ran here. Older Neptune says it must have been because they captured Croire.
K-Sha wonders what the CPUs were up to while they were all away. Noire explains that after defeating the clones, Uzume got confused but Umio was able to help her clear her head. The hatred Kurome took tainted her memories making them seem worse than the actual events. Uzume and the world never actually hated each other.
An earthquake occurs and Neptune wonders what is happening. Croire says Kurome has finally done it. Older Neptune demands answers. Croire says she has taken in the power of the CPU from another dimension. A fraction of this power can move dimensions with ease but it will likely consume Kurome as Croire told her she should only use after she has revived. Umio thinks she is trying to speed up the fusion of dimensions. Croire remarks as they are all here, she can finally record some interesting history. Uzume has a plan and they must find her. The party searches for Kurome.
The party manages to find Kurome Ankokuboshi in a dungeon. Kurome asks what they plan to do, they kill her, both of them and this world disappears. If they let her go, the dimensions will fuse and she will become the Hyper Dimension. Uzume reveals her plan which is to beat Kurome up and take the power of the CPU from another dimension. If they have the power, they can stop the dimensions from fusing.
Uzume declares that today is the day she defeats herself that is drowning in hatred. Kurome declares that she will defeat herself and all the others in the way. Kurome wanted to have them all alive to experience the eternal hell she was going put Gamindustri through but they are becoming a major interference in her plans. Kurome summons all the Dark CPUs. Older Neptune wonders why Dark Purple is still here as they have defeated her already. Kurome says that she has the power of delusion, as long as there is Negative Energy, she can create the Dark CPUs and she still has the CPU's power so they were be complete Dark CPUs.
Kurome then fuses with the Dark CPUs to become Dark Orange. Dark Orange says that the form is perfect for taking revenge on Gamindustri. Dark Orange calls the party useless as they are unable to fight with Sharing Field. No Sharing Field can contain her. Uzume says she has an ace card and points the giant Share Crystal in the Heart Dimension. Dark Orange warns her that using the crystal is like using their "lifeline". They will both die. Uzume says she is not suicidal and will use the crystal until there is a little bit of shares left then turn it off. That way, Dark Orange will weaken too.
Dark Orange is angry but calls it useless. Uzume calls this her last HDD and transforms to Orange Heart to activate the Sharing Field. The party manages to defeat Dark Orange.
Dark Orange says that she cannot die yet until her revenge on Gamindustri is complete. Uzume tells Dark Orange that she will never get her revenge. Older Neptune declares victory. Kurome performs one last act of vengeance and takes the power of the CPU from another dimension down with her. Neptune asks her older self if they can use Croire. Older Neptune says Croire can only move people between dimensions.
A monster horde is heard. The horde is coming by land, sea and air and are heading towards the Hyper Dimension. Older Neptune wonders why as they beat Kurome. Croire explains that she must have given the order to the monsters to destroy the Hyper Dimension just as she died and remarks that she truly went down gun blazin'. The party lack the manpower and supplies to intercept the horde. They also don't have time to return to the Hyper Dimension to prepare a proper defense.
Uzume has one final plan and asks Nepgear to destroy the giant Share Crystal then the party must head back to the Hyper Dimension. Nepgear is unwilling to do so but her sister assists her. The two destroy the Share Crystal and the party take their leave.
The party heads back to the Hyper Dimension through the portal Histoire created. Umio was able to rescue the monsters from the Zero Dimension as well. The Swirl Console breaks signalling the end of the monster horde and Uzume.A Older Neptune spends the next few days touring around in the Hyper Dimension. She is mentioned by Umio as going to Lowee to try out the new Blanc manjus.
Neptune asks the party if it is okay to leave like this. Older Neptune sympathizes with Neptune but urges her to go. Noire adds that they need to respect Uzume's final wishes. Neptune tells the party she needs everyone for a happy ending and runs off for Uzume. Nepgear agrees with her sister's actions and wants to run off. Older Neptune is also unhappy with leaving Uzume. She then realizes that the dimension has not collapsed yet even though the Share Crystal has been destroyed. Uzume must have planned to hold off the monster horde because they would be in big trouble if the horde caught up to them. The dimension will collapse once all her share energy is used up.
S-Sha concludes that if Uzume survives then the Hyper Dimension will have to deal with the horde. Nepgear still wants to save Uzume and runs off. Older Neptune also runs off to save Uzume.
The three find Uzume exhausted and injured. Neptune tells her older self to take care of Uzume and asks her sister to help her out in holding off the horde. Older Neptune agrees and tells Uzume that she will be fine. She should lean on her. Older Neptune tells Croire to warp them all back. Croire says she cannot as she has no energy. Older Neptune asks her why does she always run out of energy at times like this. Croire reminds her that her notebook constantly sucks away her energy. Older Neptune begins to freak out. Affimojas then arrives with his ship to help the girls out. Affimojas tells them to hurry as their main ship is in the Zero Dimension.
Older Neptune, Neptune, Nepgear, Uzume, Steamax and Affimojas have made it to Affimojas' main ship stationed in the Zero Dimension. Umio is on the ship and glad to see Uzume.
Umio reports that the evacuation of the monsters was easy as they all somehow heard Uzume's voice in their head so they all gathered up. He did try to get through the gate to the Hyper Dimension but that took too long so he put them in this ship instead. Uzume is happy to hear that and collapses. Umio is concerned that she just collapsed but Steamax assures him that she is fine and only exhausted. Affimojas orders Steamax to take helm and get to the dimensional hole. Steamax agrees.
Older Neptune comments that they have 2 problems left to deal with. There is the monster horde and dimensional fusion. Neptune notes that Kurome is gone neither dimensional fusion or Dark CPUs can be an issue. This leaves the monster horde. Histoire calls in to tell them that counter measures have already been put in place. Histoire reports that all of the military of each nation and volunteers are currently fighting a massive defensive battle.
Vert reports that all of Leanbox's soldiers are deployed. S-Sha adds that they number 1000000 and that she never thought they would be used for this. Dogoo Lady corrects S-Sha with the fact that they are all formerly soldiers, now they are ran-pigs. Dogoo Man adds that his clan is helping out. Dogoo Man has trained his muscles for this. Older Neptune asks if that means there are more Dogoo Man.
Neptune is moved by their efforts. Neptune agrees and the ship starts shaking. Steamax reports that the rear shield is down and monsters are boarding. Affimojas is upset with the fact that a ship that he has not paid off the loan for is damaged. Neptune volunteers to clear the monsters as she will not be a bum and earn her stay. Affimojas praises her spirits and leaves it to her.
Deeper in the ship, the party runs into Uzume. Uzume wants to help them clear out the monsters as that would protect the Zero Dimension monsters. Uzume joins the party.
At the end of the ship, there is one final strong monster. The monster roars. The party defeats the monster and Nepgear reports that all monsters have been defeated. Older Neptune notes that all that is left is to evade the pursuer monsters and make it to the Hyper Dimension. Uzume's expression darkens. Nepgear asks what is wrong. Did Uzume forget some monsters in the Zero Dimension. Uzume tells them the bad news that Kurome is still alive and she just saw her.
Both Neptunes do not believe as they saw her disappear earlier. Uzume assures them that she saw her and runs off. The three girls report to Affimojas and Steamax and ask for permission to leave. Affimojas understands and asks them to be careful.
They run into the CPUs, candidates, Gold Third, IF and Compa. The group joins the party to make sure Kurome is defeated and that the Hyper Dimension is safe. The party heads off for the final battle.
The party has made it to the general location of Kurome Ankokuboshi. Up ahead, they find Kurome. Uzume calls Kurome a tenacious bastard for being alive. Kurome admits she was beaten and did disappear but negative emotions revived her. They could have killed Uzume or destroyed the main seal since the sealed body of Uzume is unique. It constantly gathers negative emotions from the world meaning no matter how many times her soul is purified or that Kurome is killed, Uzume will be stained in darkness and Kurome can revive. Kurome thinks being prone to assumptions and daydreams backfired for the party.
Uzume tells Kurome that she is the one with assumptions. The giant Share Crystal is destroyed so the sealed away Uzume is dead. She is here is because she is separate from her real self and therefore she won't die the same time her sealed self dies. Even if they give Uzume Share Energy, her real body will never revive. Uzume apologizes for keeping this from Neptune and the others. Older Neptune can only say Uzume's name in response to this revelation.
Uzume says that is it and invites Kurome to hell with her. Kurome cannot accept that and transforms into Dark Orange. Uzume had planned to go alone into the grave but that plan is all in shambles. She says it is time for her final HDD and Sharing Field. Older Neptune asks if she means to use her life. Uzume says it is the only way to get enough Share Energy. If it can beat Dark Orange then it is worth it.
Dark Orange does not accept that and still clings to her desire for revenge on Gamindustri. The party fights Dark Orange and kills her. Uzume declares that with this she has disappeared and shortly following is the Zero Dimension and Heart Dimension. Neptune says that her predecessor's existence has been seared into her eyes. Nepgear says she will never forget her. Umio apologizes for not being able to save her. Uzume does not mind and enjoys the fact that she will never be forgotten by some people. That is much more than what she can ask for. Uzume admits she is reluctant to go but her time is almost up. She asks older Neptune to warp everyone to safety. Older Neptune agrees and accepts that this time will be the last time they say good bye.
Before they leave, Uzume gives Nepgear her Visual Radio. Older Neptune warps the party away.
Neptune announces to Histoire that they are back and everything has been settled. Histoire thanks them for all their hard work and reports that she has observed the disappearance of both the Zero Dimension and Heart Dimension. Umio and Neptune accept the fact that Uzume is gone. Histoire thinks it is too early to give up and decides to release Uzume's seal. It can revive her but Histoire admits that she has no way of assuring whether Uzume or her original personality corrupted by negative energy will return.
In fact, it is more likely Kurome will return. That being said, with the Visual Radio, there is a chance Uzume will return. Nepgear asks Histoire for assurance on this. Histoire tells her that the Visual Radio is proof of Uzume's adventures in the Zero Dimension. In addition, Histoire feels something coming from instead the Visual Radio. It is not Share Energy but she feels it is the trigger for her real personality to revive.
Older Neptune asks Histoire if that is just a desire instead of a theory. Histoire admits that it may be because she spent time with her but she does hope the Visual Radio can bring Uzume back somehow. Older Neptune tells her not to get the wrong idea and she supports this too. She wonders if Neptune is okay with this. Neptune says she will take any chance as long as Uzume can be saved. Everyone else is okay with it. They reason that the people of Gamindustri came together because of their desire to save Uzume. If they cannot save her then it is the same as letting the people of Gamindustri down.
Histoire explains that she will connect the peripherals to the console which is called the "main seal". Normally she would press the power button and release the seal but she will attach the Visual Radio first. The Visual Radio is showing Uzume's mark. Histoire then releases the seal and asks that Uzume receive everyone's prayer.
Uzume revives and announces that she accepts her existence. She apologizes for keeping everyone waiting. Neptune, Nepgear and Umio are glad to see Uzume. Older Neptune was worried as she thought Kurome had revived when she first heard her voice. Uzume is grateful that she is here thanks to everyone's wishes. She thanks them and is glad to be back home in Gamindustri.
A few months have passed and older Neptune, Uzume and Umio are traveling around Gamindustri. Older Neptune is mostly touring the dimension while Uzume wishes to see how much Gamindustri has changed in several decades. They decide to return to the Planeptune Basilicom.
Older Neptune announces that they are back. Nepgear is pleased to hear this. Uzume trips and falls on older Neptune. Older Neptune reports that the warp has messed up. Uzume says that this has hurt her ass. Umio wonders if Uzume is okay. Older Neptune thinks that this is weird as she thought she set the co-ordinates properly. She blames this on Croire. Croire says that this is her fault for keeping her in the book. If she does not like it, she should release her. Older Neptune says if she acts like this, she is less inclined to release her. She threatens Croire with pinning her down with needles. Uzume adds that she has lost count of how many times Croire has messed up the warp. Umio offers some needles he found from puffer fish. Croire does not want this and says she and her wings are delicate.
Nepgear tries to get their attention. Uzume realizes this and says it has been a while. Neptune sees that Uzume is healthy and wonders how is Gamindustri. Uzume thinks the people are nice and the food is great. In addition, she met an old man who was a boy that called her lame during her PR campaign with Umio way back. He bought a console from her nonetheless and managed to remember her even through the rewrite. Nepgear is happy this hear this. Uzume wants to tell them more about her adventures but Umio tells her she is forgetting something. Uzume apologizes and announces that she is home.
Trouble in the Sauna
Older Neptune arrives to enjoy the sauna only to find both Uni and Nepgear collapsed. She brings them out and hears about their dumb contest to see who can last the longest for a drink. They were both broke so both of them could not give up until they both collapsed. She scolds the two of them for their reckless actions.
Nepgear and Uni apologizes. Neptune hopes the two of them will reflect on this and learn from their mistakes. Nepgear and Uni agree. Neptune is happy with that and is off to enjoy the sauna.
Nep-Note: First Page
3 years ago, in a forest near Ultra Dimension Planeptune, Neptune arrives and wants to collect more interesting things. She admits that she gathered most of the bugs and flowers from this area. Luckily for her, she found a huge fly and captures her.
The bug wonders what is going on but she is caught. Neptune cannot believe that she caught a fly that could talk and believes it is super rare. The bug wonder how Neptune knew where she was in the first place.
However, Neptune thinks the bug is not making any sense so she believes she can't talk with it. Neptune thinks that is too bad but that won't stop her from showing the fly off to everyone then it will be put in her specimen book. The bug protests and demands her freedom.
Nep-Note: Second Page
In the Ultra Dimension Planeptune, Neptune is disappointed that she showed everyone her amazing bug but their reaction was lackluster. All they care about is how much Neptune's outfit suits her. The stranger thing is how her bug was big before but now it is small. She wonders if it shrunk.
The bug still demands her freedom. Neptune is upset on how noisy her bug is being and decides to put her in the Nep-Note. She looks for her tape.
The bug wonders what is going to happen her. Neptune sticks her in the Nep-Note. Croire notices that she can't move and wonders what Neptune did to her. Neptune is glad that she officially has one more to her collection.
Nep-Note: Third Page
Later, Neptune learns the bug's name is Croire but decides to call her Crostie. Croire retells Neptune all the trouble she ever caused with joy. Neptune tells Crostie that this really puts her off. She tells Crostie she has been quite the villain. Croire tells her if she is so put off, she should let her go. She wants to start strange interesting problems in other places already.
Neptune remembers Croire talking about "Dimension". Neptune wonders where that is and what kind of interesting monsters can she collect. She also hopes that it has a beach or hot spring as fanservice is important after all. Croire begins to explain what a dimension is to Neptune but gives up because that would just waste her time. She just wants to be let go. Croire cannot warp inside this book.
Neptune did not know Crostie can warp. Neptune wonders if she can warp now as she believes she just triggered a key event of some sort. Neptune tries it out and decides to warp to the supermarket. Croire tells her to stop as she has a bad feeling about this. Croire notices that her power is being used without her permission.
Nep-Note: Fourth Page
3 years later in the Heart Dimension, older Neptune notices that she has grown up a bit and has explored lots of different worlds. There are some similar worlds and some that have an idol boom going on. There is a different feel at every co-ordinate. Croire is unhappy with the fact that she has been held back for so many years because of Neptune. Ever since, she has been in this book, she has not been able to record dark history, let alone meddle with it.
Neptune tells Croire there will be no meddling. It is best to have fun after all. The two of them should be having fun talking together while traveling. Croire tells Neptune their definition of fun are opposites. In addition, it isn't really a conversation when older Neptune is just yammering on. Neptune notes the two of them have saved a world before this. She really feels that the two of them enhance each other. Neptune believes the two of them will be BFFs forever.
Croire thinks it is the opposite of that. She is not being enhanced by Neptune as Neptune keeps sucking her powers. Croire is all dried up. Neptune thinks Croire is a party pooper. Besides from that, Croire notes that she is almost out of energy. They better land soon or they will be stuck between dimensions. Neptune thinks that is no good as she is also exhausted from this long flight.
She tells Neptune that she has found an interesting dimension. She has only been here once. Neptune is glad to make an emergency landing in that dimension. As a result, the story of Megadimension Neptunia VII would occur.
What... Raw Meat? (Cont'd)
Older Neptune sees Vert, Nitroplus and Raw Meat enjoying themselves. She has finally be able to lay her eyes of Raw Meat herself. Older Neptune knows Gamindustri is not a land ruled by common sense, but even she has not had the chance to see a living slice of meat before. Older Neptune wonders if Raw Meat is an endangered species. Older Neptune wonders if she cut a piece of Raw Meat, if it would grow and if she can use it as a specimen.
Nitroplus arrives to hear that last part. Older Neptune notices her stern expression and explains that she was joking but wants to know where Nitroplus found Raw Meat. Nitroplus tells her that she met Raw Meat near her hometown in PC Continent. Raw Meat does not like to talk about herself. That being said, Raw Meat mentioned once that a scholar performed a ritual and summoned her from another world.
Older Neptune thinks that if she could summon anything, it would not be raw meat. She would have summoned a dragon or unicorn. Nitroplus thinks that Raw Meat is cooler and prettier than the things older Neptune mentioned. Older Neptune admits that some people cut up meat decoratively but Raw Meat is not like that. She is thin and not tasty looking at all.
Older Neptune realizes that if Raw Meat was summoned, she must have a purpose here. Older Neptune hopes that she is an ally but on the chance that she can be an enemy's biological weapon. Nitroplus assures older Neptune that this is not the case. Raw Meat is like her flesh and blood, so she wouldn't do anything bad.
Older Neptune apologizes for doubting her. Nitroplus does admit that Raw Meat's tribe did try to take over the world. However, a magic grimoire and a god machine stopped it. Older Neptune recognizes THAT tribe.
