that's sttings for a series of Short Story
. Heavily inspired by Shin Megami Tensei
. It's Alternate History
, mostly similar to ours. While All Myths Are True
, people just don't notice it until recently. Whatever they know from mythology was in Age of Legend, when super natural beings, both deities and demons, coexisted with humans. Eventually, the deities Ascend to a Higher Plane of Existence
. Leaving behind are humans, and among those humans are heroes, the bearers of godly power to ward the world from demonic threats. On surface, this Age of Humans is identical to ours world, as humans are unaware of the conflict behind the veil of darkness. It eventuallly ended, ignorant humans gradually their believe in deities, and that slowly weaken them
. Then come the Age of Darkness
, when the fangs, claws and tentacles are no longer confined in the night.
Still, the remaining heroes, weaken as they are, continue to resist. The stories are told from several protagonists, each providing part of information about the state of the world. The current roster are following.
- Hinami Shiranui - a Genki Girl, Herald of Amatersu-Omikami from "Village of Guardians" Konohana, and fangirl of Ultra Series. She travel the world, seeking trace of other solar deities and try to restore their power. The closest thing to main character.

- Kikuri Tendo - Childhood friend of Hinami and Amano. In contrast to other two, she's Yamato Nadeshiko who isn't good at combat.
- Toga Shiranui - Hinami's father and the last "traditional" Herald of Amatersu. His story take place near the end of the Age of Humans.
- Asanee "Arc" Sinhala - The Atoner who call himself Fake Hero. The "Vajra" of Indra, that is also a Henshin Hero. He's hunting down Vritra.

Tropes to be use.
- Clothes Make the Superman: Played with. The astral clothes are incredible durable for their look and make a good protection gears, but they're materialized from the owner's psyche. So one must already be a super to use them.
- Convenient Color Change: Hinami's astral clothes switch colours and reflect her state in Multiform Balance. Normal mode is white on red, which inverted in Burning mode, and Gekko mode switch red to blue.
- Elemental Powers
- Fallen Hero: The Montobito - Moon Clan. Their ancestors were guardians of Yamato just like people of Konohana. However, their power is that of dark affinity, and thus were feared and shunned by very people they protect. Jealous of the Konohana, they threaten to release the demons sealed in Yomi. The ancient Herald put the end to that, and banished them to borderland of Yomi and mortal world. Some of current generation Montobito are quite monstrous, for their bloodline were mixed with demons. Many of them are still humans though, and they aren't Always Chaotic Evil.
- Innate Night Vision: Arc gain this ability when transformed.
- Miko: Hinami's astral clothes look like one. During the peaceful days, it's part-time job for girls in Konohana...to attract tourists.
- Multiform Balance: Hinami has access to two alternate modes as story progress. The first mode (either called Burning Mode or ''Moe Mode'', depend on her mood) which turn her into a Lightning Bruiser with Super Strength, Super Toughness and heat immunity. And Gekko Mode which allow her to shoot Frickin' Laser Beams, Wave Motion Gun style. However, she can't use the standard gears in either mode.
- Take Up My Sword: Hinami fail to restore power of Horus and Sol. However, both of them're willing to sacrifice their remain essence to increase her power. Also, her Toribune bird ship is made from Ra's solar boat.
- Weapon of Choice
