She also has a special symbol when she shows up with an enemy, and the original “Energy Heart” friendship combo that is only available on the 3DS version of the game.
The story starts out with the protagonist Ren Homura moving to a new town and transfers to his new middle school. Due to an incident that happened in the past, he has lost parts of his memories, but he doesn’t realize it yet.
