Hyperdimension Neptunia mk2
Compa and IF arrive in the Gamindustri Graveyard in search of the CPUs and Nepgear and find them all constricted by cords. They attempt to free them using the Sharicite but are interrupted by CFW Judge. While IF holds him off, Compa manages to revive Nepgear.
With Nepgear now awake, the three of them attempt to fight off CFW Judge so that they can revive the other CPUs. There efforts are for not and they are forced to use all of the Sharicite’s power to make an escape, causing it to crack. Feeling upset about being unable to rescue the CPUs, Compa and IF return to Planeptune under Histoire’s command.
Nepgear finally awakens and Compa and IF are elated to see her. After Nepgear explains what transpired in the Gamindustri Graveyard, Compa and IF are complete surprise that they were easily defeated by a single person.
Histoire explains how ASIC has taken control over most of Gamindustri and how the CPUs shares have decreased significantly. She also explains that the CPU Candidates can go out and restore these shares. By doing so, they would be able to weaken ASIC.
Compa and IF are bit skeptical about the idea, considering the fact that ASIC members spawn faster than they can act and how the current CPUs were already defeated so easily by ASIC. Histoire presents another idea; to request the aid from each nation’s mascot character.
Though this is a good idea, they are left without any idea as to the location of the mascots. Histoire begins to research and track down Planeptune’s mascot and tells IF, Compa, and Nepgear that she will notify them when she is finished. In the mean time, the three girls go out to recover some of Planeptune’s shares to help the nation and also rehabilitate Nepgear.
The party heads to the Guild to take up a quest for hunting Dogoos. They head to Virtua forest to complete the quest and are come into contact with a number of Dogoos. Before they can kill off the last one it flees. They chase the Dogoo down and are faced with even more Dogoos which form into one giant Dogoo. IF tells Nepgear to transform but Nepgear is unable to fulfill her request.
After defeating the Giant Dogoo, IF asks why Nepgear couldn’t transform to which Nepgear replies that she isn’t ready. Feeling glad about the fact that they at least one, IF dismisses the topic and the group heads back to Planeptune to turn in their report.
Once they report the completed quest to the Guild, they decide to take on even more quests to help rehabilitate Nepgear further. They complete several quests before heading back to the Basilicom where Histoire tells them that she has located Planeptune’s mascot character.
Nepgear, IF, and Compa head to the Virtua Forest depths where they meet Underling (Linda) for the first time trying to destroy the Mascot character. Underling easily defeats IF and Compa leaving only Nepgear standing.
Underling attempts to take out Nepgear next but her attack is intercepted by IF. Nepgear feels determined to not lose and so IF kisses Nepgear to shock her back into accessing HDD again.
Nepgear easily defeats Underling but is still unable to rescue the Mascot character before she destroys it. The destroyed Mascot calls out to Nepgear and entrusts the remainder of its power to her.
The girls return to Planeptune after acquiring the Mascot character’s power and inform Histoire that ASIC is targeting Mascot characters. Compa adds in that Underling was nice enough to tell them that she was going to Lastation next.
Understanding the situation, Histoire asks for the group to head to Lastation to stop the next Mascot from being destroyed. She also makes a request for Nepgear to try and recruit the CPU Candidates of Lastation and Lowee. Now that they have a plan, the group heads to Lastation.
