In 2034, There was once a legendary party named Subaru in the globally popular MMORPG Union. The group was made of elementary school friends. They earned fame in the blink of an eye for their unparalleled abilities in the Sense system at the core of the game. However, there was an incident where a player passed away inside the game. As a result of the death, Union ended service. Six years pass. Haruto Amō, who was a key member of Subaru, has become a hopeless high school student. His personality has changed, and he has no friends or ambition. A classmate gets him to log in to the new Re'Union game, and he ends up having a "reunion" that is hard to believe. He meets his former in-game partner and real-world childhood friend Asahi Kuga. The girl who was supposed to have died six years ago was there.

Seven Senses of the Re'Union (Shichisei no Subaru 七星のスバル) is a Light Novel, with an animated adaptation by Lerche for Summer of 2018.

General tropes:

  • Childhood Friend Romance: What Satsuki wants with Haruto.
  • Combat Clairvoyance: This is Asahi's ability, even in Re' Union.
  • Cute Ghost Girl: Asahi. After she died when getting Game Over that happened six years ago.
  • Dark Magical Girl: Satsuki specializes on offensive spells, and she's very good at it.
  • The Fellowship Has Ended: After Asahi's death, the rest of Subaru disbanded, with Satsuki and Haruto being the only ones that remained sort of in touch.
  • Fiery Redhead: Satsuki has reddish pink hair, and while most of the time she's very nice, anger her and you'll be toast.
  • Innocent Fanservice Girl: Because her mind is six years less mature, Asahi has no problem taking of her clothes to dry them in front of Haruto.

  • Jerkass: The player in the second episode that wants Asahi to join his group is a complete jackass.
  • Oblivious to Love: Is kinda of funny that Haruto didn't notice Satsuki's feelings even after six years.
  • Putting the Band Back Together: What Asahi proposes after finding herself back in the game.
  • Reality Warper: Takanori can do this to a degree.
  • That One Boss: In-Universe example. The back knight monster Subaru faced in their last mission had never been beaten, and they thought they were going to be the first. They failed.
  • Whip It Good: Satsuki uses one to command her summons.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Both in the game and in real life, Takanori has blue hair while Satsuki has reddish-pink hair.
  • Younger Than They Look: Back in Union, Subaru's avatars looked like teenagers when they were actually in elementary school. Six years later and now the Avatars fit their actual ages.
