weeks before the game's story, Nanase was attacked by a Void. Fortunately, Hyde
managed to save her although the Void's bite triggered her transformation into
an In-Birth. Due to her lack of information regarding In-Birth, she believed
that Hyde was responsible for her becoming a "monster" and has since
been stalking him to exact her revenge and force him to "take
When the Hollow Night
begins, Nanase feels that it is the ideal time to settle her vendetta against
Hyde and seeks him out, completely unaware of the dangers the Night brings. On
the way she encounters Vatista (who herself had
just recently encountered Hyde) and, due to Vatista's rather vague description
on her encounter, believed that Hyde forced Vatista to satisfy a cosplay
fetish. When Vatista doesn't reveal Hyde's location, Nanase fights her. Later,
Nanase meets Linne and identifies her as the girl
who's always with Hyde. Nanase expresses her distress at her condition, but
due to her unclear description, causes Linne to think that Hyde had a sexual
relationship with her. When Linne refuses to reveal Hyde's location, Nanase
fights her as well. Afterwards, Nanase encounters Orie
and once again uses double entendres to express her distress, causing Orie to
think that Hyde had sexually assaulted her. When Nanase is once again denied
Hyde's location, she fights Orie.
Nanase then reaches
the Altar and encounters Hilda. When Nanase's
frustration at not finding Hyde finally reaching it's peak, she fights Hilda
as a warm-up for her future fight with Hyde and wins. Hyde then shows up and
is surprised to see Hilda already defeated. Having found the object of her
vendetta, Nanase demands that Hyde take responsibility for his actions.
Vatista, Linne, and Orie then show up, each asking Hyde if what Nanase told
them was true. Hyde, who is completely unaware why they are all angry at him,
decides to try calming Nanase down by fighting her. When Nanase wins, Hyde
flees with the four girls chasing after him.
The girls lose sight of Hyde and Nanase begins complaining about how, because of Hyde, she's now an In-Birth. Realizing that the entire situation was all a misunderstanding, the girls explain to Nanase the real reason why she's an In-Birth. Accepting that Hyde isn't the one at fault, Nanase decides to
let go of her misguided grudge but insists that she isn't doing it to be nice.

Hmm... where have a
seen a cutesy anime schoolgirl with pigtails and a big sword? ...How about in
EVERY doujin fighting game ever? lol. It's funny, because Nanase was ADDED to UNIEL's original
roster in the EXE:Late update. The game was almost free of super cliché
anime characters, but of course... they just couldn't resist... they just had to
put a schoolgirl with a sword in the damn game. lul. In fairness, Nanase does have some pretty cool moves and animations in the game.
No, I didn't find Nanase very interesting at first glance... but of course I
tried her out in the game. As far as schoolgirls with swords goes, she might be
the most fun in recent memory. She's got some cool slash moves,
specials & combos... and her air "hurricane" projectile has a
pretty cool trajectory. Her facetious "out for revenge" storyline
against Hyde is kinda funny. She's not the most original or exciting design, but she's not bad. On a side note, I had to lower my TV
speakers due to her voice being so abrasive and annoying. True story.
