Tower Block A (塔A区画, tou-ei kukaku?, lit. "Tower Sector A") is the topmost part of the Tower of Harvestasha, located above the Reyvateil country of Clustania, and it extends beyond the Blastline up to a point called Ku. This place is also where the Rinkernator is located. Depending on the actions taken by the player, and on the performance displayed on a boss battle that takes place here, this could be the final dungeon of the game.

Events During Ar tonelico Qoga: Knell of Ar Ciel

After Akane agreed to operate the Rinkernator in order to save Saki's and Finnel's lives, the party climbed their way throgh the Clustania Executive District and found themselves in an area resembling the Lymph Vessel. Upon reaching this place, Akane told them that they would be inside the Tower again after advancing a little further. Katene was marveled at the perspective of climbing at the highest sections of the Tower for the first time, to which Akane replied that they should be alert for any sort of danger, as with Harvestasha shut down, they wouldn't be able of monitoring the security protocols, and that if any Guardians appeared, they should destroy them before they had any chance to attack the party. Aoto and Cocona were uneasy about the fact that Ayatane never tried to impede their progress, to which Gojo replied they should keep their guards up, as he was the kind of person to plan all sorts of devious schemes. They then proceeded further into the place.

Finally, they reached the Warp Gate leading to the Rinkernator and entered it. Once inside of the structure, Saki and Aoto were both surprised they had finally reached it, while Akane explained this was the place that regulated the flow of Symphonic Power throughout the entirety of the Tower, which is also part of why Clustania had declared it as their sanctuary. The other reason was because this was the place where the legendary Reyvateil Origin, Tyria, could be revived. Although initially she couldn't believe her ears when Aoto and the others talked about having talked to her, she decided to go through with their plan to witness with her own eyes Tyria's awakening, as well as also saving Finnel's life. Katene then declared he would show them the results of his research. He then ran off to the pillar in the center of the structure, excitedly exclaiming that there was a way to create Tyria's Holography, like the research of his father Kiraha stated. Hikari Gojo then reminded him that he wasn't the only person here and that they didn't have much time, so he wouldn't end up drifting into his own world. Aoto and the others offered to help, but Katene politely declined and told them to just rest for now.

Aoto then contemplated they had finally reached their goal, and that for now, they could only trust in Katene's skills...

Protecting Saki

Aoto wished for Saki to become healthy again, to always be at his side, and to always be smiling and happy.

Protecting Finnel

Aoto wished for Finnel to get better, for her to always be at his side and to always show him her smile.

EXEC_METEMPSYCHOSIS/. and the Attack of the Tower Guardian

Aoto then went and talked with Akane, apologizing for having yelled at her when they were in the Nurturing Chamber. Akane apologized herself too for having acted in an inconsiderate manner, and told Aoto that she should have thanked him earlier for having taking good care of her. Aoto told her to not worry about that, as they both were good friends to Finnel. Akane told him that Finnel was her only friend, and if she wasn't Clustania's Supreme Commander, she could have been much kinder to her. Aoto remarked that wasn't because of her position, but because of her personality, and that most likely, she wasn't very good at socializing. He then told her that she show follow her emotions, no matter what. Akane replied she was emotionless, and was designed to be born without them. She then explained that all Clustanian Reyvateils were born with an specific duty, and as she was born to be a military leader, she wouldn't need any emotions. Aoto remarked that sounded as a very boring existence, as she couldn't feel happiness or fun, not even sadness; but still told her that she should try expressing her feelings to Finnel more often. Akane then asked him why he tried so hard to make Finnel happy if he wasn't ordered to do so, to which he replied it was because of her extreme clumsiness and because she was fun to be with. Akane wondered about that, so Aoto told her this was the point of being friends. Akane asked him if that was called romance, which prompted Aoto to begin laughing at the idea of someone lacking emotions knowing about romance. Akane told him that she read about it, and that it was the most absurd of the privileges of being human. Aoto retorted that she knew the word but not what it meant.

However, their discussion was cut short when Katene announced he had finished and called everyone over. He informed the party he had finished the preparations for the creation of Tyria's holography, and all that was needed now was the Song for operating the Rinkernator. Akane knew it was her turn, and stepped up to the task. Finnel apologized for causing her trouble, to which she replied that if this was the only way of saving her life, she would be more than glad to help, as she was her friend, and this was of a higher priority to her than even Clustania's own safety. She then told Finnel to not worry, as the Symphonic Power interruption would be only temporary. She then went and began singing, and the plates of the Rinkernator began opening around them in response, making Katene all excited to the prospect of reviving Tyroa. However, this also triggered the appearance of a Guardian robot called MYU, which made Katene tell everyone they had to destroy it as fast as possible: if they didn't finish the battle before the plates were fully open, the Reyvateils would become unable to sing their Song Magic, making it impossible to defeat it.

Bad Ending Route

Unfortunately and despite their efforts, Aoto and their party were unable to defeat MYU in time, and both Finnel and Saki noticed the effects of the Rinkernator being shut off: they instantly got very tired and unable to sing their Song Magic, so they didn't have any other choice but to retreat for now.

After they crossed the Warp Gate, Aoto asked if they were okay, to which everyone answered affirmatively. However, Katene was angry over the fact that they were so close, yet were unable to revive Tyria, while Cocona noted the fact that the Warp Gate leading to the Rinkernator wasn't working anymore. Akane explained that none of the Tower's systems would work as long as the Rinkernator was open, which led Aoto to rationalize that this was why the Reyvateils couldn't use their Song Magic, and without them, defeating that beastly robot was impossible. Katene also told them that even if they could go back to the Rinkernator right now, Tyria's pod would still be closed, and it would be the same thing.

However, at that point, they began feeling a tremor: it was the combined force of the Great Fang and Archia fleets attacking Clustania, who were taking advantage of the fact that the Prome Wall was inactive. Cocona remarked they would completely flatten Clustania like this, so Finnel told Akane to hurry back to the city and protect it, and to put her feelings for her aside for the moment. Aoto asked her the same thing: he clarified he despised Clustania, but as their ally and Finnel's friend, she had to fulfill her duties. Akane apologized to them both, and ran off. Cocona asked if this was the correct thing, to which Aoto replied it was, and apologized to Saki for this. Saki didn't mind it, as she had taken a liking to Akane too, which moved Finnel. Aoto reassured them this wasn't the end, and that they would find other way. Cocona remarked that Aoto was being too gullible again, while Hikari Gojo advised them to leave the place to reconsider their strategies.

However, as they were heading back, they were intercepted by Richaryosha, who demanded to have Saki being given back to the Archia Think Tank as their final warning. Gojo asked her to let them through, and if she was actually her friend, to put them before her duties, as they would take care of Saki. Richa apologized, telling him that things had changed and that she was now powerless to do that. She then ordered Aoto to hand Saki over, but Aoto refused once again. Richa told him this was a declaration of war against Archia and the entire human race, and thus, the entire Archian army appeared on the site.

Cocona remarked they didn't know when to give up, while Richa told them that they wouldn't be able of escaping, especially now that Song Magic was disabled. Raphael then appeared and ordered them to cease resisting. He told the party they had captured the suspected host of the Antibody Brain, Ar Ru, and while they were lenient before only because Aoto had saved Saki's life, they couldn't continue showing mercy him anymore. He gave Aoto a last chance to give Saki over, to which Aoto replied what was so special about the Antibody Brain. Raphael explained it was the being who created and controlled the Antibodies, and that Saki's duty was neutralizing it to save the world from that menace. Archia had once exterminated the Antibodies and kept peace in the world, but now the Clustanians were using them as bio-weapons to exterminate humanity. Aoto replied sarcastically that this all was new to him, while Raphael replied that if they didn't stop them, humanity would disappear from Ar Ciel, as would the Planet itself too, and that Saki was their final hope: the one and only ultimate weapon for killing Antibodies.

Gojo told Aoto to ignore these lunatic ramblings, as Raphael was just considering the Reyvateils as weapons and objects, and told Raphael in his face how inhumane and selfish his ideas were. Raphael merely replied that his ideas were quite unscientific for a Reyvateologist, and because of them, he would never surpass Laude. Then, he told them that Reyvateils weren't humans either: they were merely objects created by human hands and they fate was to serve their creators. Aoto replied he understood the current situation, the crisis the world was facing and Saki's duty, but he would never understand his repulsive ideas, and would never attempt to do so. He didn't like all Reyvateils and thought the world would be better off if Clustania didn't exist, but now he learned he was wrong: all Reyvateils in the world were precious existences and people, so he couldn't trust or listen to one of Raphael's words. Hikari Gojo vouched his support for Aoto and that they didn't ever to get on Archia's side, as also did Katene, remarking that Reyvateils were much nicer than most people.

Raphael retorted this was absurd, and asked them if they were trying to exterminate humanity. Aoto was enraged due to such twisting of their intentions, which Raphael told them that Saki was the solution they had created from decades of painstaking research and the death of many. Aoto told him he didn't care, and that if it took saving the world to save Saki, he would do it. However, at that moment, Sakia Lumei reappeared, announcing he didn't have more time left, and struck him in the head with her sword, despite Cocona's warning, and made him fall to the floor. Finnel asked why she had done this, to which Sakia replied they had reached the decisive point for the world's future, and that Aoto couldn't do anything about it by himself. She then told Raphael to take her back to the Archia Think Tank while she still was in control of the body. Raphael agreed, and ordered Richa to prepare for departing. Hikari Gojo tried to stop her, and asked her how she could serve a man that thought that Reyvateils, her own species, was nothing but weapons. Richa could only stay silent before this.

As Sakia was leaving for Archia's warship, Aoto grabbed her from the feet and tried to stop her. Sakia reacted with disgust and began repeatedly kicking him, while Aoto obstinately repeated over and over he wouldn't let her go, that he wouldn't let Saki go. Sakia remarked he was acting pathetically and ordered him to let go, to which Aoto replied he didn't care, that he just had to make time until Saki resurfaced. Raphael ordered Richa to get rid of Aoto, to which she initially hesitated, but at Raphael's insistence, she went and prepared to kill him. However, before she had a chance to do so, Mute showed up again in her muscular form. She apologized for being late, and told Aoto she would take care of this. Sakia cursed under her breath that her time was running out, and she vanished, leaving Saki in her place. Saki was shocked to see Aoto covered in bruises and Mute being around, to which Mute replied she had destroyed the security systems of the Slave District, so the children would be safe, and apologized for having chased her all this time. Then she told her to run away now. Saki thanked her and retreated. Katene was amazed to see Mute and tried to declare her love for her, which made Mute violently blush and tell him he was supposed to say these things only when they were alone. Katene told her he was worried, but Mute told him to leave it for later, as she had to kick Raphael's butt first. Raphael asked if she was trying to avenge Loude, to which Mute answered she was, and that she would rid the world from his presence right now. He told Mute that her spite, cheesiness and vulgarity all came from her father, which enraged Mute further and prompted her to scream she would never forgive him. This gave the party their chance for escaping.

Saki apologized for the beatdown that Sakia gave Aoto, to which Aoto replied it wasn't her fault. He then commented they failed to extend their lives and were fugitives again: basically, they were back at square one. Cocona advised him to move on, as they had to save the world in addition to Saki and Finnel. Hikari Gojo told them they all most likely wanted to rest, but unfortunately, this wasn't the time for it, as they had to save Akane. Likewise, they didn't for how long or if Mute and her platoon would be able of fending off the enemy. Katene was worried for Mute, but the others told him she most likely would be fine, considering her monstrous strength. They then went back to the Clustania Executive District.

After they returned from Moocheriel, Aoto carried both Saki and Finnel back to the entrance to the Rinkernator, and told them to stay alive for a little longer. Saki, with bated breath, told him she wasn't scared at all. Finnel, very tired, told him she was feeling the same as Saki, and very warm too. Then, they both apologized to Aoto and thanked him for everything. Aoto told them to just rest for now. However, when they reached the Warp Gate, it gave absolutely no response. Cocona remarked the access to the Rinkernator had been shut down, and Akane explained that after the battle, they most likely modified the security system and its corresponding access codes. Katene tried hacking into the systems, but Finnel told Aoto he didn't need to do this anymore... while Saki told him that this would be her end... Aoto told them to not give up, as he would take them to the Rinkernator no matter what. He then broke down, and began beating on the Warp Gate with his fists, in despair for not being able to do anything to save them... Saki and Finnel then told him they would both become stars in the sky, and that they would continue watching over him forever, as they thanked him again... Aoto began beating on the gate harder and more despairingly, ordering it to move in vain... Both girls then gave him their last farewells, as they melted away into the same biofluid from which they were created... Aoto completely broke down to this, while both Hikari Gojo and Akane gave him their condolences.... Akane remarking they had lived their lives to the fullest, and would finally rest in peace... They then returned to Clustania to give them proper memorial service...

Once there, Aoto made and placed tombstones for Saki and Finnel near Akane's house. Upon being asked about it by Cocona, Aoto remarked how strange it was: Reyvateils had the same appearance as humans, yet nothing would remain of them after their death, not even a corpse. He then told Cocona he would depart on a journey to explore this world, and see everything they tried to protect. Hikari Gojo volunteered to accompany him, as also did Cocona, both reminding him that a great travel companion was worth more than all the money in the world. Katene and Mute invited them to visite them in their home once they returned, while Akane told them that she would take good care of the tombstones. Aoto then looked up to the sky, telling Saki and Finnel that he would see everything this world had to offer for their sake, and to please continue watching over him always. However, this was only the beginning of another tragedy, as Ar Ciel's demise would take place the following year...

Normal Route (Saki)

After Ar Ru was neutralized and the party learned that Harvestasha was using a copy of Krusche's virus to hack the Soulspaces of the Reyvateils, they were ordered by Raphael to go and defeat her by Diving into her through the maintenance pod located in Ku, at the very top of the Tower. They were sent to the Symphonic Power Plug, right after the sealed warped gate, which was the highest point to which the airships in Sol Cluster could take them due to the Blastline.

Once there, Aoto noted he had never gone to such a high place despite his steeplejack job, and wondered why Harvestasha's maintenance pod had to be in such a place. Cocona suggested it could be to make sure that no one messes her up. Hikari Gojo then suggested to go, as it was too late to turn back now.

After a long climb, the party reached Ku and the maintenance pod. Cocona remarked on how spectacular and different the place was, while Saki was trembling from fear and excitement. Gojo told Aoto to begin the procedure, so Aoto complied and pronounced the Hymmnos Spell for unlocking the pod. Instantly, the pod reacted and rose out form the floor. Aoto then told Gojo to contact the people of the Archia Think Tank using the Telemo and tell them to begin hacking. Aoto thanked everyone for sticking with him until the end, and thus, they began the Dive.

Once inside Harvestasha's Binary Field, Aoto reacted with amazement to the appearance of this "Soulspace", while Saki remarked it was very misty and blurry. Harvestasha's voice then resounded throughout the place, ordering them to recite the maintenance code. Aoto was left confused, as he was never told anything about a maintenance code. After Harvestasha told him again to recite the code, Aoto straight out told her to come out from her hiding place. The voice told him the code was invalid, and that he would be analyzed. However, that actually was a lie: she was sending strong DH-Wave shocks to force the minds of everyone involved in the Dive to collapse, as Hikari Gojo noted. Now, the only thing they could do was wait for Jack's and Krusche's help.

A while later, the piercing sounds emitted by the DH-Waves stopped, Hikari Gojo commenting that his head was about to shatter from them. And Jack and Krusche's hacking didn't just stop the flow of these waves: it also forced out Harvestasha, who was amazed that such monkeys had managed to go through her security. She then commented it was a long time since it got updated and it was time to change the passwords. Cocona told Harvestasha that she had come to this world to meet her, as per Jakuri had instructed her; and was looking forward to meeting a Reyvateil who was trying to regenerate the Planet. However, this was no more than a great disappointment for her, and she wanted to at least take responsibility for putting an end to this tragedy, as a little souvenir to bring back to Metafalica from her two year-long journey. Harvestasha screamed that if they were trying to reformat her, to then say that would be impossible, and that she would delete everyone before they had a chance. She also said that she wasn't scared at all from their physical prowess, which made Aoto reveal the second part of their plan: the Hymmnos Spell that Jack and Krusche had thrown out a while ago didn't just halt the DH-Waves, it also served as a patch that made possible to cause physical damage to Harvestasha. She then got angry and screamed that she would personally dispose of their crappy program. She then began singing chmod b111000000/n to change into battle mode.

Aoto was surprised to see how much her shape had changed, to which Gojo replied that this was Harvetasha's battle mode, and that their only way out would be defeating her. Excitedly, Aoto challenged her, stating he would rip her to pieces.

After she was defeated, Harvestasha remarked that every human was entitled to be stupid, but he was abusing that privilege: even if they killed her, her program wouldn't stop. She was a creation of the humans, and as long as her program remained, the history would repeat itself, and this was the beginning of their demise. She then vanished. Everyone rejoiced at having defeated Harvestasha, while Gojo stated that a new era had begun, as the times of Clustania's conspiracy would be left behind now. Saki congratulated Aoto, as he was not only her hero: he was the hero of everyone in the world. Aoto was embarrassed from receiving such a compliment, while Saki asked him if the world would now become a peaceful and happy place. Aoto told her that it would be, making Saki say she was glad to have been born in it. They then left the Binary Field and returned to the Archia Think tank.

Normal Route (Finnel)

After Ar Ru was neutralized and the party learned that Harvestasha was using a copy of Krusche's virus to hack the Soulspaces of the Reyvateils, they were ordered by Raphael to go and defeat her by Diving into her through the maintenance pod located in Ku, at the very top of the Tower. They were sent to the Symphonic Power Plug, right after the sealed warped gate, which was the highest point to which the airships in Sol Cluster could take them due to the Blastline.

Once there, Aoto noted he had never gone to such a high place despite his steeplejack job, and wondered why Harvestasha's maintenance pod had to be in such a place. Cocona suggested it could be to make sure that no one messes her up. Hikari Gojo then suggested to go, as it was too late to turn back now.

After a long climb, the party reached Ku and the maintenance pod. Finnel was amazed by the view and on how close the sky seemed, while Cocona remarked it was magnificent, bu there was no time to appreciate it. Gojo told Aoto to begin the procedure, so Aoto complied and pronounced the Hymmnos Spell for unlocking the pod. Instantly, the pod reacted and rose out from the floor. Aoto then told Gojo to contact the people of the Archia Think Tank using the Telemo and tell them to begin hacking. Aoto thanked everyone for sticking with him until the end, and thus, they began the Dive.

Once inside Harvestasha's Binary Field, Aoto reacted with amazement to the appearance of this "Soulspace", while Finnel remarked it was very hazy and ghastly, and gave her a bad feeling. Harvestasha's voice then resounded throughout the place, ordering them to recite the maintenance code. Aoto was left confused, as he was never told anything about a maintenance code. After Harvestasha told him again to recite the code, Aoto straight out told her to come out from her hiding place. The voice told him the code was invalid, and that he would be analyzed. However, that actually was a lie: she was sending strong DH-Wave shocks to force the minds of everyone involved in the Dive to collapse, as Hikari Gojo noted. Now, the only thing they could do was wait for Jack's and Krusche's help.

A while later, the piercing sounds emitted by the DH-Waves stopped, Hikari Gojo amazed the Archians managed to do this, while Finnel noted that Harvestasha had finally appeared. She was amazed that such monkeys had managed to go through her security. She then commented it was a long time since it got updated and it was time to change the passwords. Cocona told Harvestasha that she had come to this world to meet her, as per Jakuri had instructed her; and was looking forward to meeting a Reyvateil who was trying to regenerate the Planet. However, this was no more than a great disappointment for her, and she wanted to at least take responsibility for putting an end to this tragedy, as a little souvenir to bring back to Metafalica from her two year-long journey. Harvestasha screamed that if they were trying to reformat her, to then say that would be impossible, and that she would delete everyone before they had a chance. She also said that she wasn't scared at all from their physical prowess, which made Aoto reveal the second part of their plan: the Hymmnos Spell that Jack and Krusche had thrown out a while ago didn't just halt the DH-Waves, it also served as a patch that made possible to cause physical damage to Harvestasha. She then got angry and screamed that she would personally dispose of their crappy program. She then began singing chmod b111000000/n to change into battle mode.

Aoto was surprised to see how much her shape had changed, to which Gojo replied that this was Harvetasha's battle mode, and that their only way out would be defeating her. Excitedly, Aoto challenged her, stating he would rip her to pieces.

After she was defeated, Harvestasha remarked that every human was entitled to be stupid, but he was abusing that privilege: even if they killed her, her program wouldn't stop. She was a creation of the humans, and as long as her program remained, the history would repeat itself, and this was the beginning of their demise. She then vanished. Everyone rejoiced at having defeated Harvestasha, while Gojo stated that a new era had begun, as the times of Clustania's conspiracy would be left behind now. Finnel congratulated Aoto, as he didn't just save her, but the entire world: he was the Superhero fo Justice. Aoto was embarrassed from receiving such a compliment, while Finnel asked him if the world would now become a peaceful and happy place. Aoto told her that it would be, making Finnel say she was glad to have gotten her life from Aoto's hands. They then left the Binary Field and returned to the Archia Think Tank.

Finnel Normal Ending

After party defeated Harvestasha and secured Finnel's freedom, she and Aoto returned to Ku. Halfway through, Aoto remarked he was tired and needed to take a short break from all the climbing. Finnel told him he need to do this, and it'd be better if they went home. Aoto told her that he wouldn't leave this halfway through, and that he would take Finnel to Ku no matter what. Once at the top, Aoto let himself fall to the ground on his back, making Finnel ask if he was okay. Aoto replied he wasn't, given that they had to walk so much and Finnel was so heavy. Upon seeing how angry this made her, Aoto told her he was just joking, and that she wasn't heavy at all. Finnel was very glad to have reached the highest place in Sol Cluster, where it seemed she could even touch the sky. Aoto then reminded her it was time for her to do her Starcircling readings, as there were many stars here that couldn't be seen from further below. As they were in the top of the Tower, it would be possible for Finnel to see all the stars in the universe, and thus, they should just relax until nightfall. He then added that given they had come this far, they had to achieve something while they were there. Finnel sarcastically told him he had went all the way there carrying a very heavy baggage. Aoto reminded her it was joke.

Later on, Finnel asked Aoto if he still remembered when they first met. Aoto told her he did, given that Finnel was so clumsy that she had almost fell down from a cliff. After briefly getting angry at this, as usual, Finnel told Aoto he was pretty cool when he volunteered to save her. She then began remembering all the times he had protected her, and she remarked she knew she wasn't alone every time Aoto had tried to save her. He desperately had called her name when Ar Ru was about to take over her, and that was why she was so determined to not lose, to persevere... everything just to go back to where he was. Aoto remarked it wasn't him, and that was all because of Finnel's own strength, making Finnel thank him for his words. The stars then came out, making Finnel very impressed with the number she could see. Aoto then told her to begin with her readings, which resulted in the highest compatibility possible that Starcircling offered for this ocassion. Aoto didn't understand why she said "this time", so Finnel told him the truth: when she did the reading back at Clustania, their compatibility was terrible, but she was too scared to tell Aoto about it. After apologizing, she told Aoto she was very happy this was their true reading, and thanked him for taking her all this way. She also told Aoto she was very grateful for having been able until the present. Aoto told her they would continue living for a very long time, that he wouldn't let her die and that he would find a way to extend her life. Finnel thanked him for having given her a whole new life, and asked him to allow her to be at his side a while longer. Aoto reassured her that he would always be at her side, and that she should live on. Finally, Finnel asked if he didn't feel as if they had become two small start in the night sky staying up in such a high place, and telling Aoto she was very glad to have fallen in love with him...

However, all of the party members were very far from imagining the consequences of their actions: now that Raphael had gotten Ar Ru's physical composition data and there wasn't anyone who could stop him, he would be able to carry out the horrendous Human Evolution Project, killing the Reyvateils and transforming the humans into hideous monsters called Reyvaroids. And still, this would be just the tip of the iceberg, as Ar Ciel would die the following year, taking with it all of the people who lived in Sol Ciel, Metafalica and Sol Cluster...

Meeting Tyria (True Routes)

After a grueling battle, Aoto and his friends managed to defeat MYU before the time limit, which exploded and was left turned into a scrap heap. Katene informed the Rinkernator was successfully opened, and proceeded to unlock the pods it contained. After they opened up, a girl came out from one of the two Dive Pods that were revealed.

Aoto recognized her as the hologram the had seen previously at the Lymph Vessel. Saki and Finnel stared at her, knowing she was the person who would save them. Katene was beside himself of joy at the prospect of having managed to revive the legendary Reyvateil Origin, Tyria, while Akane was astonished. Aoto was about to gladly announce that Saki and Finnel would be saved, but at that moment, Tyria interrupted him by uttering a single phrase: "fried bread". This left everyone in shock, and prompted Aoto to wonder if she was okay. Tyria then began remembering she had turned into the Tower, and that she had now regained a human shape. Saki went close to Tyria, and then transformed into Filament, who immediately began begging her to save them. Aoto was amazed that she managed to push out Sakia Lumei and came out from sheer force of will, as Hikari Gojo explained. Tyria immediately recognized her as a Will of the Planet, which Filament hurriedly confirmed. She also informed the party that Finnel's personae and all of Saki's other personae were Wills of the Planet as well, which together made the manifestation of the Planet Herself. Aoto interrupted her, and asked Tyria to extend their lives. Tyria agreed, as she noted that before she could save the Planet itself, their vessels would need to be repaired, as the excess of personae were breaking up Finnel's body and Saki's was extremely weakened from the widespread use of her Miracle power; overloading their Triangular Nuclear Loops.

Akane asked if it was possible to boost the supply from the Loops, to which Tyria replied it would be easier if they could be replaced by Selfstabilizing Tesseractal Nuclear Loops, but that was impossible, as it would be like replacing the CPU of a computer with a human brain. Therefore, she told them that she would restore the Telomere counts of their Triangular Nuclear Loops. Upon seeing Aoto's confused face, Hikari Gojo went and explained that the Triangular Nuclear Loop was the most important part in the bodies of the Reyvateils and that Telomere were the fuel for it, so restoring the Telomere would be enough for their lives to be extended; while also expressing amazement for Tyria's ability to manipulate Telomere. Tyria then asked Filament to let Saki out. Filament first made her promise she would help them to restore the Planet after Saki's life was saved, to which Tyria agreed. Filament then vanished, telling Tyria she believed in her.

Saki then reappeared very confused, but found herself looking at Aoto's happy face, who told her that Tyria would heal her. They then entered into the pods and took a short nap, so Tyria could begin the restoration process. Akane then thanked Aoto again for all his help, to which Aoto replied he should be the one thanking her. Akane then told everyone she would leave, as she had to go verify the situation in Clustania, but asked the party to take good care of Finnel.

Aoto spent a good part of the repair time walking around, which made Tyria comment he reminded her of an animal in a zoo cage. She then asked Aoto if she was worried. Upon noticing it was the case, she told him to calm down, as the Tower had technology that surpassed that found in the rest of Ar Ciel, as this was the only place in the world capable of artificially restoring Telomere. Aoto then asked if she really was the legendary Reyvateil, to which she answered she didn't really know due to having been sleeping the last 700 years, but she could still say she was the Tower itself, as well as its Administrator. Katene then popped up, scaring Aoto, and screaming she was destined to regenerate the Planet. He then proceeded to explain that Tyria was one of the three Reyvateil Origins, although Aoto could only look at him in confusion upon hearing the term. Katene then explained that among these Reyvateils, Tyria was especially outstading, although upon seeing Tyria act in her aloof and weird way, they both had to doubt these claims. Tyria then noticed that Aoto seemed to have something weird in his body, and then she explained he was a Medley or Half-Reyvateil: a male human with active Reyvateil qualities, although he couldn't be strictly considered as a Third Generation. Although she didn't explain well what she meant, she actually referred to the fact that if his emotions got aroused, it would become very dangerous to him: in other words, he was at risk of developing the Border Disease. However, when Aoto trying asking her for more info, Tyria began acting aloof again, which left him incapable of getting any more information. Tyria then commented the girls should be done by know by making the same sound as a cooking clock, prompting Aoto to remark if she thought they were food, and Tyria ask if there was still fried bread in this era.

After the process finished, Tyria informed them that both Saki and Finnel were as new now. This made everyone rejoice because of having accomplished their goal. Tyria then declared this was the end of the story, and congratulated everyone. Aoto then reminded her that she still had to keep her promise to Filament, which Tyria said she had forgotten despite that having taken place just a short while ago. Cocona asked if it was okay for such a person to be the Tower Administrator, to which Tyria replied in third person she was. She then told everyone she had other business to take care off, and left the party. Aoto remarked she was quite weird, while Saki told him she was a very interesting girl, making Aoto tell Saki she was weird too. Saki told Aoto he was being mean.

However, at that point, they began feeling a tremor: it was the combined force of the Great Fang and Archia fleets attacking Clustania, who were taking advantage of the fact that the Prome Wall was inactive. Cocona remarked they would completely flatten Clustania like this, so the party hurried back to Clustania to make sure that Akane was all right.

However, after they left the Rinkernator and as they were heading back, they were intercepted by Richaryosha, who demanded to have Saki being given back to the Archia Think Tank as their final warning. Gojo asked her to let them through, and if she was actually her friend, to put them before her duties, as they would take care of Saki. Richa apologized, telling him that things had changed and that she was now powerless to do that. She then ordered Aoto to hand Saki over, but Aoto refused once again. Richa told him this was a declaration of war against Archia and the entire human race, and thus, the entire Archian army appeared on the site.

Cocona remarked they didn't know when to give up, while Richa told them that they wouldn't be able of escaping, especially now that Song Magic was disabled. Raphael then appeared and ordered them to cease resisting. He told the party they had captured the suspected host of the Antibody Brain, Ar Ru, and while they were lenient before only because Aoto had saved Saki's life, they couldn't continue showing mercy him anymore. He gave Aoto a last chance to give Saki over, to which Aoto replied what was so special about the Antibody Brain. Raphael explained it was the being who created and controlled the Antibodies, and that Saki's duty was neutralizing it to save the world from that menace. Archia had once exterminated the Antibodies and kept peace in the world, but now the Clustanians were using them as bio-weapons to exterminate humanity. Aoto replied sarcastically that this all was new to him, while Raphael replied that if they didn't stop them, humanity would disappear from Ar Ciel, as would the Planet itself too, and that Saki was their final hope: the one and only ultimate weapon for killing Antibodies.

Gojo told Aoto to ignore these lunatic ramblings, as Raphael was just considering the Reyvateils as weapons and objects, and told Raphael in his face how inhumane and selfish his ideas were. Raphael merely replied that his ideas were quite unscientific for a Reyvateologist, and because of them, he would never surpass Laude. Then, he told them that Reyvateils weren't humans either: they were merely objects created by human hands and they fate was to serve their creators. Aoto replied he understood the current situation, the crisis the world was facing and Saki's duty, but he would never understand his repulsive ideas, and would never attempt to do so. He didn't like all Reyvateils and thought the world would be better off if Clustania didn't exist, but now he learned he was wrong: all Reyvateils in the world were precious existences and people, so he couldn't trust or listen to one of Raphael's words. Hikari Gojo vouched his support for Aoto and that they didn't ever to get on Archia's side, as also did Katene, remarking that Reyvateils were much nicer than most people.

Raphael retorted this was absurd, and asked them if they were trying to exterminate humanity. Aoto was enraged due to such twisting of their intentions, which Raphael told them that Saki was the solution they had created from decades of painstaking research and the death of many. Aoto told him he didn't care, and that if it took saving the world to save Saki, he would do it. However, at that moment, Sakia Lumei reappeared, announcing he didn't have more time left, and struck him in the head with her sword, despite Cocona's warning, and made him fall to the floor. Finnel asked why she had done this, to which Sakia replied they had reached the decisive point for the world's future, and that Aoto couldn't do anything about it by himself. She then told Raphael to take her back to the Archia Think Tank while she still was in control of the body. Raphael agreed, and ordered Richa to prepare for departing. Hikari Gojo tried to stop her, and asked her how she could serve a man that thought that Reyvateils, her own species, was nothing but weapons. Richa could only stay silent before this.

As Sakia was leaving for Archia's warship, Aoto grabbed her from the feet and tried to stop her. Sakia reacted with disgust and began repeatedly kicking him, while Aoto obstinately repeated over and over he wouldn't let her go, that he wouldn't let Saki go. Sakia remarked he was acting pathetically and ordered him to let go, to which Aoto replied he didn't care, that he just had to make time until Saki resurfaced. Raphael ordered Richa to get rid of Aoto, to which she initially hesitated, but at Raphael's insistence, she went and prepared to kill him. However, before she had a chance to do so, Mute showed up again in her muscular form. She apologized for being late, and told Aoto she would take care of this. Sakia cursed under her breath that her time was running out, and she vanished, leaving Saki in her place. Saki was shocked to see Aoto covered in bruises and Mute being around, to which Mute replied she had destroyed the security systems of the Slave District, so the children would be safe, and apologized for having chased her all this time. Then she told her to run away now. Saki thanked her and retreated. Katene was amazed to see Mute and tried to declare her love for her, which made Mute violently blush and tell him he was supposed to say these things only when they were alone. Katene told her he was worried, but Mute told him to leave it for later, as she had to kick Raphael's butt first. Raphael asked if she was trying to avenge Loude, to which Mute answered she was, and that she would rid the world from his presence right now. He told Mute that her spite, cheesiness and vulgarity all came from her father, which enraged Mute further and prompted her to scream she would never forgive him. This gave the party their chance for escaping.

Saki apologized for the beatdown that Sakia gave Aoto, to which Aoto replied it wasn't her fault. He then commented that although they had managed to extend their lives, their situation was still the same to when they left Archia. Saki and Finnel then encouraged Aoto, as he had managed to act like a true hero by allowing them to have a chance to continue living. Cocona advised him to move on and continue doing his best, as they had to save the world in addition to Saki and Finnel. Hikari Gojo told them they all most likely wanted to rest, but unfortunately, this wasn't the time for it, as they had to save Akane. Likewise, they didn't for how long or if Mute and her platoon would be able of fending off the enemy. Katene was worried for Mute, but the others told him she most likely would be fine, considering her monstruous strength. They then went back to the Clustania Executive District.

Reprogramming Harvestasha (Part 1)

After Tyria had the nasty surprise of finding out how much Harvestasha's personality had been changed, she told the party they would have to head off to Ku in order to restore her to her default personality, otherwise the Planet Regeneration Project would be impossible to accomplish. After climbing a little the tubes and elevators opposite from the road leading to the Rinkernator, the party reached up a dead end. Tyria explained it was because the Warp Gate leading further up was sealed to keep away any invaders intending to gain access to the top of the Tower. She then pronounced an Hymmnos Spell and unlocked the gate, leaving Aoto very surprised. She just laughed and told him that after they crossed the gate, his eyes would be bombarded by sensory trasures. They then continued their way to Ku.

Love Scene (Saki)

As they continued climbing, Aoto noted he was pretty tired. Saki then called him and told him to look at the beautiful view they had from where they were standing. Aoto agreed, while Saki continued by saying the sky was so close and the towns below seemed so small, and said that they might be able of touching the stars and the moons with their hands once they reached the top of the Tower. Aoto just began laughing when he heard that, and when she asked why he had, Aoto just answered that she had quite an imagination. Saki pouted and told him it was just a way of speech, as she actually knew that touching such faraway things was impossible. Aoto knew what she meant, but couldn't avoid laughing after seeing how excited she was. Saki continued pouting, as that meant to her that Aoto had been making fun of her, so Aoto just apologized, which made Saki laugh too. Aoto then commented that he didn't knew Ar Ciel was so large, and that the humans managed to destroy it in only one instant. He then asked if they would really be able of saving such a large and beautiful world. Saki reassured him they could do it, which made Aoto ask from where she was getting all that confidence. Saki replied it was that she felt very and relieved and happy at his side, and added that as a Will of Ar Ciel, she also knew how the Planet felt. Aoto thanked her for this, as this had relieved him from any fear. Saki then told him she just wanted to be at his side, but not as a Will of the Planet: just as herself. She then told him they should their best, and they continued climbing.

Love Scene (Finnel)

As they continued climbing, Aoto noted he was pretty tired. Finnel told him to look at how close they had the sky, and Aoto noticed how amazing it was, as his gaze had been focused on how far the ground was. Finnel added they could see all the stars from that point, to which Aoto agreed by adding they were on the highest place in the world. Finnel asked him to do their Starcircling readings again, to which Aoto complied, although he was afraid of their result turning from chosen lovers into archenemies. Finnel told him to not worry about it, as the result from the reading she did at Clustania was actually the worst they could have gotten. Aoto was surprised to hear this, as Finnel had said the exact opposite thing back then, but Finnel explained she had lied, and that their stars actually denied each other. She was afraid of Aoto rejecting her had she told him this. Aoto told her she was a dummy, as he would never hate or leave her just for something like that. He then added that he wasn't so superstitious, and that he trusted far more on the feelings he had for her. He added that Finnel should always continue smiling, as that was what made him certain that everything would turn out well. Finnel told him how much she loved him, and then Aoto suggested to continue climbing.

Love Scene (Tyria)

As they continued climbing, Aoto noted he was pretty tired. Tyria just encouraged him, as they were about to reach the top of the Tower. Aoto then noticed how high they were, and upon asking at which altitude they were, Tyria explained they were at 4300 Stons above the ground. Aoto remembered at that moment that the Tower was Tyria's body itself. and was surprised at how advanced the technology of the First Era was, and as Tyria herself said, she and Harvestasha were both made from it. Aoto asked if they were like chilhood friends, to which Tyria replied that sort of. However, noticing Tyria's saddened face, Aoto asked what happened, and knowing that Tyria wouldn't tell him, he guessed it was due to Harvestasha's "Shitframe" personality. He also reminded her that she could return Harvestasha to her normal personality, and reassured her that this problem wouldn't worry her for much longer. Tyria told him she now felt better, and she was sad because Harvestasha was the only being n the universe she called a friend. Aoto remarked it'd be okay for as long as she was fine, and that she looked much cuter whenever she smiled. Tyria thanked him, leaving Aoto embarrassed. He then asked Tyria how it felt to be the Tower, which she had trouble explaining. She summarized it as eating clams and suddenly bitting a piece of gravel stuck to their shell. Aoto couldn't really understand and asked her for other example. Tyria was amazed that he couldn't understand, and remarked there was huge generation gap in comparison to 700 years ago. Aoto then told her it must feel great to have total control over the world due to being the Tower, which Tyria denied, as she was tired of it and wanted to do something else. After Aoto asked what, she replied she wanted to be a gal wife, and added she really liked how it sounded. Aoto was left shocked, and could only say that he could imagine some men being into that. Tyria then asked if she could become his gal wife, getting Aoto all embarrassed. She then explained she had learned a lot about that kind of human wives, about how they wore aprons on their naked bodies and made food for their dumb husbands, to then ask them if they wanted to take a bath first, take dinner first... or take the wife herself first. Aoto remarked that was pretty off the mark in his opinion. Tyria then repeated the question if he would like to marry her, to which Aoto replied it wouldn't be very bad. Tyria replied that she would fill his lunch box with octo-sausages, and after Aoto showed his confusion at what were these, they continued their way.

Reprogramming Harvestasha (Part 2)

After a good while, they finally reached Ku, at the very top of the Tower. Cocona remarked on how spectacular and different the place was, while Tyria told them to get ready. She stepped forward and pronounced a Hymmnos Spell to unlock the pod, which shot up from Ku's floor when she finished. Tyria then explained it was like a Dive Machine, so they would be Diving into Harvestasha's Binary Field to restore her. Hikari Gojo hesitated, as entering the Dive Field meant for the humans that their minds would be dismantled into information packets and destroyed. Tyria told him to not worry, as they would just enter into remote controlled simulation of the Binary Field, and the effects on their senses would be similar to that of normal Dives. Cocona added then it would be like the real world: anything that happened to them wouuld be felt as real, and if they died, that would be their end. Tyria then directed them to the Pod.

Once inside the Binary Field, Tyria searched for a while for something, and after she found it, she told the party they could access Harvestasha from it. The party was very surprised she could find something like that, as every part of the Binary Field seemed the same to them. Tyria explained that each part controlled a different section of the Tower, even if their eyes couldn't see any difference between them. Aoto just remarked he didn't understand anything while Saki commented Tyria was amazing. Tyria then told everyone to get ready to call Harvestasha, and pronounced a Hymmnos Spell to bring her out. In fact, Harvestasha appeared immediately after she finished, telling them it was quite rude to enter her mind without taking their shoes off and that's why she hated humans. Tyria retorted that some of them weren't even human to begin with, to which Harvestasha replied they were the same thing, as anything accompanying the humans would be in the same level as them. Tyria remarked she had quite an horrible personality, and told her they would fix her up. Harvestasha then smiled and prepared for that, so Tyria decided to begin at once: she pronounced a set of two Hymmnos Spells which would have the effect of shutting down Harvestasha and reformatting her personality settings. However, Harvestasha noticed what would have happened and cancelled them off, asking her if such a defective Origin was actually fixing her correctly. Tyria told her she knew what she was doing, as she was in the process of deleting her horrid personality. Harvestasha began screaming that she wouldn't forgive that Tyria was trying to
delete her, so Tyria just explained she would just copy her original personality back from the Tower's backups, and said farewell to her. However, Harvestasha screamed she wouldn't let her do it, and began executing commands to change the security levels and summon an infinite number of guardians around her. Aoto commented his body began feeling numb, which Tyria explained was because Harvestasha was restructuring herself and linking to the Tower's security systems. She finished her series of commands by starting to sing chmod b111000000/n, thus transforming into her battle mode. Aoto was shocked to see this, so Tyria told him to not give up and do his job. Harvestasha just replied by saying that a Level A assault against the Subframe had been recognized, she was installing a security patch with full specs, and was preparing to eliminate the "viruses". Tyria asked them if they were ready, so Aoto and the others had no choice but to head into battle.

After the battle finished, Harvestasha disappeared, so Tyria explained that she had removed Harvestasha's personality skin, and now the auto-backups were up, her normal personality should be restored by now. Saki and Finnel were glad they could do it, and when Harvestasha finally awakened, Tyria greeted her, by saying it had been a long time since they saw each other. Harvestasha excitedly greeted her back, while also adding she believed they wouldn't see each other again. Aoto commented her personality seemed completely different, like Tyria had said. Then everyone took the time to explain what had happened, so Harvestasha apologized for having caused them all this trouble. Aoto told her it wasn't her fault, but that it still was weird, and asked her if she really was THE Harvestasha. Tyria answered she was Harvestasha's original personality, which was created when she became the Tower. Cocona then asked why her original personality had been replaced, so Harvestasha told them she had reviewed her log history and found that the "Shitframe" skin had been installed around 400 years ago by a man called Ayatane, and its description stated "She despises humans and has strong urges to annihilate them. She is frustrated by the humans still existing, and derives happiness from turning them and the Reyvateils into vegetables. Her final goal is the extinction of humanity and the creation of a Reyvateil empire, yet plans to keep a few humans alive and drive them like cattle". Finnel remarked it sounded horrible, while Cocona recognized it as something that Ayatane would actually have written, although his ancestors were the ones that actually did it. Tyria just called him a psychopath. Harvestasha then asked if there were any improvements on her side, as she couldn't find any of Rebirthia Protocol's programs installed into her. Aoto couldn't understand what they were talking about, so Tyria explained it was the song they always heard inside the Tower.

Prior to clearing Tyria's Lv. 2 Binary Field

Tyria replied that she couldn't remember yet the second part, but that she would reboot Harvestasha as soon as she did. Harvestasha thanked her and wished them good luck in retrieving the lost part of the song.

Once they returned to the real world, Tyria commented they had reformatted Harvestasha successfully, and that her personality was again back to how it used to be, so if the rebooted her in Clustania's Harvestasha Module, the subframe should run normally now. Aoto commented this was their next task, but Tyria corrected him by saying they wouldn't reboot her until after she had remembered the rest of Rebirthia Protocol. Hikari Gojo advised Aoto to Dive into Tyria's Binary Field and search all the places inside of it. Aoto didn't know what that was, so Gojo explained it was Tyria's memory world, as she was still a Reyvateil despite being a different kind.

After clearing Tyria's Lv. 2 Binary Field

Tyria replied that she had remembered the song, and that Aoto found it hidden in the corners of her mind. Regardless, Tyria told Harvestasha she would sing it when she was ready, so both Frames would get programmed with the information necessary to carry out the Planet Regeneration Project. Tyria then told Harvestasha she would confirm her physical linkages and reboot her, and told her they would see each other again in the real world. Harvestasha said goodbye to her and disappeared, as well as thanking the party for having reprogrammed her.

Back in the real world, Tyria commented they had reformatted Harvestasha successfully, and that her personality was again back to how it used to be. All they needed to do now was rebooting her back at Clustania and sing the song. Thus the party decided to go back to the Clustania Executive District.

Layout

The Tower Block A is essentially divided into two parts: the Lower Area, where the Rinkernator is located, and which can be accessed from the Clustania Executive District, and the Upper Area, crowned by Ku, which can only be accessed by using a warp gate located in the Lower Area. However, this warp gate is sealed and can only be opened by Tyria during the Phase 4, so it can't be used for most of the game.

If the players chooses to end the game with a Normal Ending, the Upper Area will become the final dungeon of the game, and upon arriving to it, it won't be possible to go back, as the airship that brought the party to this place departs immediately, and the warp gate leading back to the Lower Area is sealed away.
