Episode 1 Rabbi, a Young Fashion Designer in Search of an Ideal
/
by Tenjin
[XANA], which means [Ideal world], there is a fashion shop district in the world of the Metaverse named after it. There, items that can be worn, such as costumes and accessories for the user's alter ego called avatars, were sold. The avatar itself can be created for free, but many users buy dress-up items from shops that sell them for a fee. Various designers sell original products in the fashion shop district. Among them, many avatars visited the animal design shop facing the square. A cute girl with bunny ears and a maid outfit is busily working in the store. "thank you very much! "Please come again♪" "Thank you, Mr. Rabbi♪ I'll come again!" 』The girl's avatar, who has finished changing into the cat-eared hoodie she bought, leaves the store with a happy expression on her face. The items sold in the store are all animal-themed dress-up items. From cute to sexy, the dress-up items targeting young female avatars are very popular, and the designer and manager, Tsukito Yayoi, is a sales person who never ceases to smile even in the real world. It's going well. (At vocational school, my designs were said to be too eccentric, but I'm glad to know that in this kind of world, they'll be very popular. If the sales and reputation are good, they'll hire me as an exclusive designer for XANA's dress-up items. That's what I'm talking about, I have to do my best!) Yayoi, who has always loved animals, had many animal-themed clothes and accessories. However, it is not popular with everyone, so it is not very popular at vocational schools. As the time for graduation draws near, the teacher who consulted Yayoi about her career asks her if she knows anything about the Metaverse. Although Yayoi had heard about it from her friends, she had never actually tried it, but her teacher later told her about it.

Episode 2 Creators Caravaggio, the Ideal Embodied
/
by Tenjin
(Hmmm... There are many events and performances in the event square, so which one did you hear about... hmm?) "welcome! welcome! "If you want to experience a fantastic space, see our Caravaggio works!" "It's free now♪" In front of a building that looks like a circus, another three-headed clown is dancing lightly while advertising. Seeing the avatars entering the building one after another, I knew it was popular. (This is the group that the customer mentioned. You might get some good hints for future designs.) The rabbi silently nods and steps into the building like the other avatars. Although the inside was pitch black, the venue was immediately enveloped in a flash of rainbow-colored light. Music starts playing, and 3D illustrations with various designs appear and disappear in time with the rhythm. (This is... amazing!) Even though I'm just standing there, my consciousness is entering this world, probably because the images are playing along with the music. Just when you think you are surrounded by gorgeous seasonal flowers, the next moment, you will find yourself flying in the exhilarating blue sky of summer. (If you visualize the 3D illustration and expand it to 360 degrees, it will certainly become a fantastic space...! Idea and development, ordinary people may not even come up with it... Who the hell is Caravaggio?) Every time the music rocks the brain to the rhythm, it is a constant stimulus. From intense rock to anime song-like songs, it's edited short, but there's no sense of incongruity in how it's connected. And sometimes, including the singing voice, I feel like I'm immersed in this world. Time passes in the blink of an eye and it's over. Ravi, who came out of the building, once again recalled the scene from earlier. (The time was about 5 minutes, but it was a satisfying experience... I'd like to hear a little story.)

Episode 1 Ideal World

by Suzuko Nemoto
We live in a world of peace and joy, a world without conflict. Apparently, this was considered the norm before I was born. People call that world the XANA Metaverse ......, the Ideal World. When I wake up in the morning, I look the way I want to look, eat the food I want to eat, and study the way I want to study. I could not understand what people meant when they said they were happy with such an ordinary thing. Because I was in that happiness since I was born, so it was a matter of course. But it seems to be the second generation. From the perspective of the first generation, it seems that they had a hard time in a negative world until they came to this world. People of the first generation often say that they felt firsthand that the world called Earth was coming to an end. In order to be free from suffering, the XANA metaverse, an ideal world, was created and a simulation was made to go to that positive world. Right now, as a world, they are divided between the negative world and the world of the XANA metaverse. ...... But I didn't have the courage to find out. Why do we have to go out of our way to make the happiness that we have now face unhappiness? Some people don't understand the meaning of knowing misfortune to savor happiness... I didn't want that to happen. But why? I had to know the world. Yes, the world had decided.

Episode 2 Bloom

by Suzuko Nemoto
"Haruka, is your body okay...? Also, the metaverse?" Saying that, I looked at Haruka's white, slender body. Haruka enjoys the world beyond the machine desperately using the headset she used when playing old VR-related games. "Because Kei. If it's this Metaverse, you can leave this world full of mistakes and dream? I can walk the world with you." "But that's..." "I'm sorry I let you stay in this world... My body was perceived negatively, and I couldn't go anywhere, so you're still going with me... If it's true, you'll be in parallel after your ascension." I am a resident of the world.” "It's okay. The world after ascension will create its own residents and live in the same way." This was a common saying in those days. Ascension as soon as you attach it to something. It was certain that it would come. Suddenly, I saw an image in the depths of my eyes. Me in the Metaverse and Haruka also in the Metaverse. Spring flowers in this world... Then I understood. If I had to recover Haruka from this world and bring her back to the post-ascension world, Haruka in post-ascension world will disappear. But at the same time, as I am, my existence in the pre-ascension world and the post-ascension world began to mix. I'll help Haruka, and when that's all over, I'll have to return to my own world. But what should I do?

When we woke up, it was the usual XANA Metaverse world. Beautiful flowers, water surface, sky... "Good morning. Kei-san. Haruka-sama." My AI says so and wakes us up. And Haruka's AI was also standing next to mine. "Good morning. Haruka-san. Kay-sama." Is this... a town? Speaking of which, it felt like there was a major update. Let's go around with Haruka later and take a look. "Haruka, Haruka..." I wake up Haruka. Haruka was very relieved to see her usual avatar appearance... But Haruka didn't wake up. I ask the AI. "What happened to Haruka?" Then the AI ​​smiles and says, "The data may be corrupted. Would you like to send it in for repair?" If it breaks, fix it. That is the common sense in this world... AI is similar, and some people expect that they will send it in for repairs after each update and accidentally change to a new model. But it wasn't even a rumor because it was so unlikely.

"Kay, where shall we go after this? It seems that a new item has appeared in the second generation avatar..." That's what Haruka says, so I nod and say this. "Shall we go where Haruka wants to go?" Since the person I love wants to go, I don't want to go to a negative world before Ascension, but if it's not that kind of world, I'll generally go along with it. Cause we're dating... We have such a wonderful relationship that even AI has to admit it. After all, that day, I went around various places, but maybe I couldn't find a place that stuck with me, so I went around similar places. However, there was still a harvest. I was able to touch on what Haruka likes. After all, they probably wouldn't want to go to places that didn't suit their tastes, so going to similar places led to knowing Haruka's tastes. “Haruka, you have a wonderful hobby.” "... My hobby is a little different, though. The details are different." There were a few complaints, but it was still a happy day. Haruka wasn't broken, and we can spend a lot of time together again. And after that day, I never heard any rumors about the world breaking apart. The world seems to have become perfect.

Episode 1 Entrusted with a Mission

by XANA China
One rainy night, Yu Qing returned home from work with a black umbrella walking out of the office building, full of melancholy, the mind remembered the words of the owner: now the global financial crisis, our business is bad, although you have been in our business for 10 years, after the decision of the upper management, it was decided to make you redundant, pack up your things, and then re-employment, you such a senior programmer, or very good to find a job. Yu Qing was still in a state of a daze when he was bumped by someone passing by, who headed off without looking back: “Sorry, excuse me.“ Because it was dark, did not see the person's appearance, Yu Qing just patted the rain that was brushing against the person, whispered a sentence: When Yu Qing returned home, he threw his bag on the sofa, and a VR fell out of the bag. Yu Qing picked it up suspiciously, and saw that XANA was engraved on the VR. Yu Qing picked it up and studied it. Soon, he understood how to operate it. Yu Qing wears VR and starts to play. He is given a new identity—the architect of the XANA organization. Yu Qing looks at the world in front of him, which is full of science fiction, where man and nature coexist harmoniously. As long as you sit on the ark, you can go to anywhere, but need to have enough virtual currency. At this time, an N who showed the XANA organization stepped forward and greeted Yu Qing: "Hi, builder, I haven't seen you for a long time, what are you doing?" Yu Qing smiled awkwardly: "I've been busy recently." N nodded his head without saying anything and left, Yu Qing then looked at the others and found that only people from the same organization could see each other's identity tags. Yu Qing continued to explore in and found himself, in VR. It seemed like a formatted, only a letter in the backpack: help the world and help me. Yu Qing thought this was a bit surprising, didn't care, and continued to explore around, wanting to learn more about this colorful world, but found that his level is not high enough, can only reach the F and E area, F area does not have any rules to follow, anyone can enter it, where people can use their talents and earn the appropriate money, however, as there are no rules, there are all sorts of land robbers inside, constantly having wars and wanting to rule the F area, but it is clear that none of them succeeded, probably for the lack of people who set the rules. E area is completely different from the F area, Here E area has no rules, but people have enough digital currency for everyone to implement their ideas, there are biologists, philosophers, and great artists, with priceless treasures everywhere, but you need an invitation to enter Zone E. This is where Yu Qing is puzzled, by the fact that he could actually enter and leave the area freely. Yu Qing walked for a long time, then suddenly two people appeared and kidnapped Yu Qing. When Yu came to his senses, he was in a large warehouse, hanging from the ceiling. Yu Qing opened his eyes and looked at the ground, an elderly gentleman, next to a foreign beast whirling turtle, a creature recorded in the "Shanhaijing", as Yu Qing stared at the foreign beast whirling turtle, the foreign beast whirling turtle may have felt Yu Qing's hot gaze, impatiently raised his head and hissed, sounding like splintered wood. The old man was sitting on a chair with a cane in his hand, as if he was sober, with a friendly expression on his face, which surprised Yu Qing who was hanging from the ceiling: "Hey, old man, can you let me down and talk about it?" The old man laughed: "Do you think me and my friend next to me are capable of saving you from a five-meter high ceiling?" Yu Qing pondered for a moment, it seems, as both are land creatures, unable to fly.
