Carl Williams writes, "What would you do when faced with saving your best friend from an out of control vehicle heading directly at them? If you are Yamakazi Kusanagi, the star of Tears of Yggdrasil, you do your damnedest to save them. Even going as far as getting mortally wounded and finding yourself in another world. A world that is not exactly all that familiar to you. The problem is, you are told that you have a limited amount of time in this world to figure things out before it is too late."
