Here’s an overview of the story featured in both games via Gematsu:
Akai Ito Story
This summer, I lost my mother—the only family I had left… I took a long train ride to see my family home, which I inherited from my father…”
I had a strange dream—a red memory I was unable to recall. There was a kaleidoscope of shining blue butterflies flying about, and a familiar person with sad eyes.
My birthplace, Hemidzuka. It is there I will meet someone, and there I will part from someone.
Past and present, dream and reality, my memories and my blood… The threads of fate will intertwine and twist together to form a single picture…
The wheel of fate is about to turn.
Aoi Shiro Story
My grandmother, who passed away long ago, loved to travel. Strange landscapes. Unfamiliar people. She loved meeting new people…
She would say, those raised under a high ceiling will grow taller—and seeing the world makes a person bigger.
During the summer vacation of my second year in high school, I too went on a trip far away. It was a training camp for extracurricular activities, but it was by no mistake a trip.
By train and car, we headed to the southern sea. With our swords and gi packed, we headed to the temple gate of the cape overlooking Oniga Island. It was there I met—.
The waxing and waning of the moon, the ebb and flow of the tides, the cycle of destiny that disturbs the surface of the water.
I will resist the storm brought about by the dragon who slumbers within the azure shrine.
