Titled ” Kaikan Phrase Climax -Next Generation-“, the project takes the format of a mobile rhythm game for selected compatible iOs and Android devices. The main female character (i.e. the player) Miwa Koharu is a normal 3rd-year undergraduate whose dream is to be a teacher after her graduation and to live a normal life… until her unexpected clandestine encounter with members of some rock bands at a music audition.
