The Pandemonium effect
Overview: On May 17th 2005 the small town of Anzentaru Hanabira disappeared without a trace at 12:00AM. For two years and one month no one had heard tale of this missing town till July 18th 2007, the town came back as if it was never gone. The only strange thing about the town was that it was completely devoid of people. Not a single soul was left; food, buildings, cars, everything except the people. As people began to populate the town once more, folks have begun to spread rumors that the former inhabitants were all spirited away. However, most if not all were merely folklore to scare the children. So for five months nothing striking occurred, that is until a week before American New Year's. All of a sudden reports have been surfacing of strange shadows moving throughout the town at night, and people say they have seen rips in the sky.
Now school is about to begin. But what awaits the new students and returning members once their vacation ends?
Areas: Important places and streets
Yanagi High: The local high school. It is where all characters will attend school at, their curriculum will be composed of Math, English, Japanese (Grammar class), Computer, and three electives (Physics,
Biology, Economics, Literature, Wood Shop, Chemistry, Cooking, and Art).
Sakura Street: The main road in town, it hold multiple shops such as the ice cream parlor, arcade, clothing stores, skate park, and tattoo parlor.
Fuyu District: One of the two residential streets, most middle class - wealthy homes are situated on the North side of town.
Hazumi District: The slums, home to the skaters and less fortunate it makes up the poorer side of the town and is situated on the south side.
Douzen Hibiki Radio: The local radio station situated on the western outskirts of town, it plays any requested music as well as a program that supposedly notes strange occurrences happening around town.
Dimensions: At random times during a day four portals appear on random streets and areas in town, these portals each lead to unknown world which hold many mysteries as well as dangers. Be prepared for all is not what it seems in these worlds.
Reverbia: The first of the four worlds it is at first glance naught more than a plain of eternal white. The sky, the ground, everything is singularly white. There is a secret to this realm and those who are impatient will discover it far more quickly than those with a level head.
Pandoria: At first glance this realm appears to be nothing more than a deserted city, filled with treasure of the heart and body. however those who traverse it will soon learn everything is not as simple or should one say grounded as they'd like to believe
Miraria: Nothing is true, everything is permitted. Mirrors, nothing but hallways and mirrors. Lies are the way of this realm, you are constantly tricked , deceived and played for a fool. In this realm your eyes are your greatest enemy ,however that does not mean you should trust your ears.
Desolationa: The most dangerous realm, nothing more than an endless desert this realm change constantly testing every part of a person to the fullest. The weak perish in this realm, The strong are left to starve, and the lucky are able to leave, however their sanity can not.
Day and Night: During the day outside of school nothing truly happens, people mainly socialize and the dimensions are devoid of any life, this is the time most choose to search these worlds as they can study the area uninterrupted. Night however is a different story, like a polar opposite instead of people going into the portals, sightings of strange and possibly dangerous creature going in are what is the normal in this time, people disappear and return not like themselves at all. Be careful for the town and the worlds are nothing alike when it comes to these times.
Creatures: These are the strange creatures said to appear at night and sometimes attack and even kidnap people. It is said that if one stays in a dimension until nightfall they will be imbued with the power of a spirit, whether or not this is true has yet to be seen however there is caution for if one goes over the limit of three creatures they themselves transform into something unspeakable.

Personality: Taizen considers everything he deems irrelevant to be nothing more than noise around him. This translates to every save for his baby brother, music, and women.
