Gaming Nexus writes: "Annie's story begins with a situation we all can relate to: her parents give her grandfather permission to abduct her while she sleeps. The old man whisks her away, bed and all, to the remote island of Sera. It turns out Annie's grandfather is a famous alchemist, and he thinks that teaching her the trade will save her from becoming a leech on the ass of society. But he's got old man stuff to do like yell at his Jitterbug and agree with everything Andy Rooney says, so he assigns a fairy named Pepe to guide you. Conveniently, a major alchemy competition is going on, and you're entered as a contestant."
