Let’s Go to the Promised Land for Hope!

Mujika is an evil-blooded survivor, who can maintain human character and intelligence even without eating human meat, so she is often attacked by other demons as a "substitute for human flesh". Far away from the demon world, she travels around with Songju and accidentally rescued Emma and her friends in the forest who had just escaped from the farm and taught these unworldly children some knowledge and hunting skills, help them with surviving. Entomologist also has a legendary experience, inheriting amazing wealth, she wrapped her face in a gauze hat to keep away from human public places, but addicted to strange insects in nature. What sparks will come from the collision between these two characters, who are also ill-fated with masks on?

Songju is Mujica's guard who has been wandering with her for more than 700 years. Although he had the desire to eat people meat again, he finally restrained his appetite for Emma. Jack is the hunter of the manor who also has a crazy impulse for eating people. Unlike Songju, he finally lost control and eventually degenerates into a serial killer. When Jack incarnates into Songju, can he put his evil desire under control again?

Zazie is the strongest human in the demon world, always wearing paper bags on his head with cute tiny toy tiger in front. He follows Norman in destroying the mass production farms, help with the feeding children.The Hunter "Doctor" in the manor was obsessed with bringing the dead back to life and creating perfect human creatures, only ending with being killed by a monster created by himself and resurrected into a new "perfect human being" in the manor. When he incarnates into Zazie, the strongest of mankind, can this be counted as realizing Doctor’s original dream?

Peter Ratri is the head of the Ratri family. He guarded the agreement with demons for the peace of the human world, placing orders to chase after the fleeing children and betrayed the elder brother who helped them to be eaten. The hunter "photographer" also has brothers and began to explore ways to preserve souls through photographs after losing his brothers. As there are more and more of photography, more people went missing. When the photographer becomes Peter Ratri, can his dream come true?

In addition to the above-mentioned costumes limited in the second crossover, a variety of accessories are also available during the crossover. Bells and masks that demons bring along brings fear into Oletus Manor; The mail given to Emma by Mujika; The tiger doll that Zazie carries with him, and Emma's quiver filled with quiver feathers after hunting. Many accessories will be restored in the game, allowing players revisit the tension and good memories in watching the anime. There are also a variety of character portraits full of memories and crossover graffiti waiting for players to go to the manor in person to find out.

When the crossover is officially out, players signing in every day before the launching will receive rich rewards including the essence of crossover. What’s more, participating in matching, ranking and joint hunting training in pursuit skills during the crossover will help to enhance Don and Gilda’s favor, and you can also choose one of the two in Forward A Costume - Don or Blind Girl A Costume-Gilda!
