-- '''Ishut'''

The latest addition to VideoGame/DeptHeaven's Union subseries, ''Gloria Union'' hit the PlayStationPortable in late June 2011.

Unlike the other Episode II games, ''Gloria'' takes place on an entirely new world. After rumors surfaced of the treasure of the [[{{Atlantis}} lost kingdom of Euforia]], a crystal containing a large amount of their main source of power, various pirates started searching for it. One such band of pirates, led by the naive young boy Ishut and his {{catgirl}} friend Pinger, has also embarked on this adventure. Unlike most other crystal-hunting pirates, however, Ishut and Pinger have a mysterious guide named [[Creator/KanaHanazawa Ruru]] who can sense the crystals and promises to lead them to the treasure.

However, at the same time their adventure begins, [[TheEmpire the Lukia Empire]]--the dominant world power--places a huge bounty on Ishut, causing pirates and mercenaries everywhere to chase after him. Ishut's newbie adventuring band seems doomed, but is rescued at the last moment by Elisha, a sharpshooter PirateGirl who belongs to the famous Gloria band. She and her father Zazarland know what Lukia is up to, and are determined to keep Ishut and Ruru out of its leader's hands at all costs.

Many of the usual culprits are involved with the game's production, although the new main artist is ''VideoGame/RadiantHistoria'''s Hiroshi Konishi rather than SatokoKiyuduki or [[VideoGame/BlazeUnion Rui Kousaki]].

Due to its fresh setting and various subtle changes to the classes[[note]]We have guns now![[/note]] and cards[[note]]They are remarkably similar to the ones Nessiah invented, containing most of the preexisting deck--even the ''VideoGame/RivieraThePromisedLand''-referencing fake Grim Angel card[[/note]], ''Gloria'' remains an EpilepticTree farm even after its release.

----
!!Provides Examples Of:

* {{Ahoge}}: Ishut has a pair. They are not for show.
* TheAlcoholic: Zazarland.
* {{Bokukko}}: Pinger.
* BoldExplorer: While Ishut is mainly interested in getting ahead of his foes, he also end up going to very interesting places.
* {{BFG}}: The Centurio Buster.
* TheBerserker: Pinger.
* CameBackWrong: [[spoiler:Velgas]].
* TheCavalierYears: Fantasy Version! Bows are no longer used and pistols take their place instead (i.e. cards that were tied to bows are now tied to pistols). Pirates fight each others for wealth and fame. Obscure tropical islands are explored and [[PowerupFood delicious fruits are found]]. Ships are devastating artillery platform that plays great role in battles.
* ChangelingFantasy: [[spoiler:Elisha's real parents are Gariored and Enryetta. Exactly how Zazarland came to raise her is left unexplained.]]
* CheerfulChild: Locomoco.
* ChewingTheScenery: In online commentary, Creator/HiroShimono remarks that he feels he might have overdone it as Ishut.
* ClassyCatBurglar: Anne.
* ContinuityNod: Female!Eater's battle ballads now describe Gulcasa's exploits from ''VideoGame/BlazeUnion''.
* ContinuityPorn: The only good explanation for Yggdra and Eater showing up along with Pamela (who, as a world-hopper, has an excuse).
* ContrivedCoincidence: Ruru's very arrival.
* CoolShip: The eponymous ''Gloria''. You would learn to appreciate it very quickly, as it can make or break the battle.
* CowardlyLion: Kamuru.
* CuteWitch: Locomoco.
* CutenessProximity: Ishut is extremely vulnerable to Ruru's moeblob moments.
* TheDitz: Ruru.
* TheDogBitesBack: Gariored ''really'' should have treated Ashley better all these years.
* {{Dojikko}}: Locomoco.
* DressedToPlunder: Zazarland and Ishut. Blackmore. Bone Demon Rogan.
* {{Expy}}: If you're not new to this series, you've definitely [[RivieraThePromisedLand seen a couple like Ishut and Pinger somewhere before]]. Locomoco is blatantly related to Pamela, and Raspberry has a NISA flavor to her. Melanie is a red-haired [[YggdraUnion Aegina]]. "Minnesota Grey" is [[IndianaJones painfully obvious]]. Velgas looks like Inzaghi.
* TheFairFolk: Pinger is a cait sith.
* FanNickname: Ishut is starting to get called "Yossha" by fans because of how often he yells it.
* {{Fanservice}}
* {{Flanderization}}: The Yggdra in this game behaves the way the Japanese fanbase views [[YggdraUnion the original]].
* GatlingGood: Yggdra's Centurio Buster.
* GenderBender: As a battle mechanic, even. Aside from Eater who has this by default, there's also a recurring map NPC that can change a character gender, which lasts for a battle.
* GirlInABox: Ruru.
* GirlishPigtails: Raspberry.
* GoingThroughTheMotions: Aside from victory poses, all the characters' battle animations are direct copies of the generic classes.
* GogglesDoNothing: Velgas.
* GunKata: Elisha.
* HeroicFantasy: Despite the low magic setting.
* HonorBeforeReason: Ishut, Fiebee. Minnesota has a particularly bad version of this, and flies off the handle at mere displays of bad manners.
* HotBlooded: Ishut.
* HotterAndSexier: Yes, Gloria even manages to one-up VideoGame/BlazeUnion on this count, via a ChivalrousPervert protagonist and truckloads of bawdy jokes.
* HurricaneOfPuns: Pinger could give [[{{Homestuck}} Nepeta]] a run for her money as far as cat puns go.
* IKnowYouAreInThereSomewhereFight: First against [[spoiler:Ruru when she awakens as Symphonia]], then another against [[spoiler:Ishut himself]] in one ending.
* IdiotHero: Ishut, full stop.
* KarmaMeter: There's a measure of your notoriety, called Fame. It can go into negative, if you keep picking fights with the authority.
* {{Keigo}}: Pinger.
* KichikuMegane: Gariored.
* KillTheOnesYouLove
* LastEpisodeNewCharacter / OneSceneWonder: Kyra shows up exactly three battlefields away from the end of the game.
* LastMinuteHookup: [[spoiler:Ishut and Ruru]] in that girl's ending.
* LikeBrotherAndSister: Apparently Ishut and Pinger.
* LighterAndSofter: Significantly, although it's still a serious game underneath all the fanservice and party shenanigans.
* LockedOutOfTheLoop: You could make a drinking game over the number of times Ishut is mocked for being kept in the dark.
* LongLostRelative: [[spoiler:Ishut and Ashley, Elisha and Enryetta]].
* LoveAtFirstSight: Ishut to Ruru.
* MadScientist: Ajo. This is even the description of his troops.
* MoreDakka: This game's Yggdra has recently come into possession of ''all of the dakka.''
* MsFanservice: Anne.
* MulticoloredHair: Minnesota.
* MultipleEndings
* MysticalWaif: Ruru.
* NiceHat: Ruru, Zazarland, and Locomoco.
* NintendoHard: {{Inverted}}, the game has been made a lot easier compared to ''Yggdra'' and ''Blaze''. It mostly has to do with being able to use the ''Gloria'' as a mobile artillery and transport in most maps.
* NoIndoorVoice: Ishut. It only takes him about three battlefields to start getting told off about it, too. Kamuru as well, but [[spoiler:he forces himself to act like that]].
* [[OurMermaidsAreDifferent Our Mermaids Are Still Different]]
* {{Pirates}}: The main characters are one.
** PirateGirl: Elisha by archetype, and all female party members by job description.
* ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything: What Blackmore accuses the party of being. (This is not true.)
* PsychopathicManchild: Ashley.
* RagtagBunchOfMisfits: Gloria. This comes with the usual self-aware jokes about the entire party being a wacky band of weirdos.
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: The sea goblins, which serve as the game's mascots.
* RidiculouslyHumanRobots: [[spoiler:Ruru]].
* TheRival: Velgas, also the resident ButtMonkey.
* RobotBuddy: Gang.
* SiblingYinYang
* SmallGirlBigGun: Yggdra.
* StraightMan: Elisha.
* SupportPower: The cannons aboard the ''Gloria'' have different effect depending on the ship's captain. Zazarland gives more range, Raspberry allows night volleys, and Minnesota packs extra firepower, for example.
* {{Swashbuckler}}: The entire game plays like an over-the-top swashbuckler adventure through the high seas. As far as swordplay goes, Ishut and Blackmore fit.
* TalkingIsAFreeAction: Averted. The party is taken by surprise several times when they're sitting around jawing, most egregiously in chapter 6. Perhaps most horribly of all, in the A ending Ishut spends so much time arguing to the rest of the party about why he wants to save [[spoiler:Ashley]] instead of just doing it that said character gets up and walks off in the middle of the discussion to go take some actions that force the party to ShootTheDog anyhow.
* TeamDad: Zazarland.
* [[spoiler:ThereIsAnother]]
* ThirdPersonPerson: Locomoco.
* TreacherousAdvisor: Gariored to Ashley.
* {{Tsundere}}: Elisha, apparently. This spends a ''long'' time being an InformedAttribute.
* VerbalTic: Pinger's "nya".
* WhatMeasureIsANonHuman
* WitchSpecies: Magic is incredibly rare in this world, and can only be used by the Witch class. Necromancers barely exist, and those that do apparently run on science instead, i.e. like Frankenstein. (Don't think about it too hard.)
* {{Yandere}}: Fiebee.
