Arato Endo

Arato Endo

The Protagonist


The youth who first encounters Lacia. Born in 2087, he is currently a second year high school student. He lives in Shin Koiwa with his father and younger sister. His father Kozo Endo is an hIE researcher, currently working on Next Generation Total Environment Cities as part of the Societal Automation Experiment.

Unassertive and unassuming, Arato is wrapped around his little sister’s finger, and is easily influenced by his friend Ryo, regularly getting caught up in Ryo’s antics in school. When Arato fall under the spell of the beautiful Lacia, he finds himself thrown into the heart of the Lacia-class hIE Escape Incident.

The question: is Arato no more than a lightweight to be manipulated by Lacia’s Analog Hacking? Or is he asserting his own will and acting of his own volition?
