Jamie Briggs, Analog Addiction. "Tales of Hearts R follows the story of Kor Meteor, a bumbling young man with a kind heart who is destined to be a hero. Kor meets a young woman named Kohaku Hearts, who is being chased by an ancient witch. After an eventful encounter Kor shatters Kohaku’s Spiria, sending its shards across the globe. The Spiria is a powerful force within one’s self that controls emotion, and also allows individuals to wield ancient artifacts known as Somas; these items evolve depending on the person wielding them. With Kohaku’s Spiria shattered she becomes an emotionless husk which motivates her brother Hisui and Kor to hunt down her Spiria shards and return them to her body."
