His childhood friend, Sone Miyuki, is now the school idol and doesn’t talk to him anymore.

JAST USA has also announced a partnership with Dual Tail in order to assist them with the English release of Venus Blood Frontier. Developed by Ninetail/Dual Tail, Venus Blood Frontier is a visual novel and strategy RPG with turn-based combat.
The story follows Loki, an ostracized demon who is in a race to obtain the Heart of Yggdrasil. Whoever brings it to the Demon Emperor Surtr will become the sole heir to the throne. The heirs competing can use any method to obtain the Heart of Yggdrasil. Such a feat won’t be easy because it is guarded by four goddesses and Odin, the Chief God, but Loki is more than up to the task.
