Anime and Dating Sim Game ConnectionEdit
As a result of Orion being from another world, and because his spirit collided with hers, the heroine is able to unknowingly travel to parallel worlds in which her love interests are different. Ukyo, the joker, seems to also play a role in the heroine's parallel world travel. The many different memories from each of the parallel worlds causes her great confusion, which end up making her believe that her flashbacks are fragments of the past or future, and later believing that she is moving through time. Orion reveals to her later that she is in fact going through different worlds. Each parallel world will show the arcs of the different boys as the love interest, the time will also relapse to August 1st each time; this shows how it connects to the otome dating sim game, as she goes through the process of regaining her memories back, and the player decides who she ends up with in the end of the game-the anime will leave an open ending, as each viewer will decide who they want the heroine to be with, she will remain in that world with him.
The male characters that the female player character can interact with are based on the symbolic suit symbols from a playing card deck with the following storylines (commonly known as 'routes' in the game and 'arcs' in the anime): Heart, Spade, Club, Diamond, and Joker. To view short arc transitions, view Orion's page.
Orion is a spirit who appears before the Heroine. He appears to have a bright and bubbly personality, and seems to care greatly for the Heroine. Orion's self appointed role is to support the Heroine throughout each story, and help her reclaim the lost memories. The heroine relies on Orion for his guidance, especially in the beginning of the story when she is most confused. He is very against the heroine going to go to hospitals because her memories need to be recovered through interactions with the people around her. Being in a hospital will only cause what memories she has left to dissipate faster. According to Orion, he collided with the Heroine's spirit which is the cause of her amnesia. He later saves the heroine from falling off of a cliff, which makes her temporarily unable to see him. It becomes more difficult for her to overcome confusing situations she encounters.
Shin (Heart Arc)Edit
Shin is Heroine's childhood friend and boyfriend. Shin realizes that the Heroine has been acting strange and confused, and she later tells him about her lost memories when he confronts her about it. He tries to help her to regain her lost memories and her lost feelings for him. Shin explains that they have been dating for three months (episode 3) and takes Heroine to familiar places, such as the location where they shared their first kiss. Shin often takes her to and from work daily. He requests that she can take some time off work in order to recover. Later, at an outing with their co-workers Shin recollects upon his childhood memories of how he became an outcast due to his father drunkenly killing a man in self-defense. This memory was foggy for Heroine until this point, where she mistakenly thought Shin was the one who killed someone. Shin explains that even after he became an outcast, Heroine cared for him and stayed by his side no matter what, along with their other childhood friend, Toma. Shin is deeply in love with the Heroine in his route, and desperately wishes to help her regain her lost memories.

Ikki is rumored to break up with his girlfriends after three months of dating, and it is later found out that it's due to a wish he made when he was younger to become popular with girls. His fan club has a rule in which they must leave him after three months have passed, including a daily report of their time spent with Ikki. His fan club would also be harsh to any girl he dated outside of the fanclub, which caused the girls to leave at the three month mark as well. He later resented that wish yet decided to date for fun since he thought he could never truly fall in love, but this all changed when he met Heroine, and did not want to give up.
