* BigNo: In the first CD's game over, Athena gives a loud one as she dies.



* DarkerAndEdgier: The games featuring Athena tend to be either cute and cheesy, or with a relatively idealistic plot. In this one the whole world is under a single united government that controls ''everything'', and Athena goes through quite the trauma as the plot unfolds.

The year is 2018 and science has progressed at an alarming rate under the Tantauls system. Dinosaurs, clones, and mecha are no longer figments of fantasy and can be constructed into reality. They regulate society to the finest detail, creating automated and technologically advanced cities on land and in sea. Yet through this government agency lies a dark conspiracy, one which mysteriously surrounds the brain waves of a school girl named Athena Asamiya. Although she believes herself to be a normal girl, her life changes dramatically once her Psycho Powers awaken. Now, it is up to her to find the truth behind her powers as well as the secrets behind Tantauls...
