Meruru is the princess of Arls, a little kingdom situated in the far north of the Arland republic. After her father and Gio, the leader of Arland, discussed the merging of the two lands, she met Totori, the now-graduated alchemist. Dazzled by the power of alchemy, and with a desire to help her country prosper, she forced herself on Totori as her first student. Her father initially disapproves of this decision, but agrees following a suggestion from Rufus. He gives Meruru a directive to use her alchemy to improve the kingdom, with several intermediate goals which must be met within specific time periods in order to be allowed to continue her alchemy work. Later, Rorona joins the two, but she has been turned into a child by Astrid after drinking an experimental potion of youth.

This is a role-playing game in which players assume the role of Meruru, a young princess preparing to merge her kingdom with a larger republic. As players explore landscapes and collect treasure, they use staffs, swords, and magic attacks to battle human enemies and fantastical creatures (e.g., lizard men, griffons, dragons). Players select attacks/spells from a menu screen and watch characters engage in turn-based combat. Enemies usually blink and disappear when defeated. A few sequences include drunken characters with flushed faces and slurred speech (e.g., “It seems he's quite intoxicated. He's been drinking at a furious pace,” “I am not drunk. Absolutely,” “That's what everyone says when they're drunk.”). Some dialogue includes discussion of characters' breast sizes (e.g., “Why don't we see who's been . . . developing?” and “That coy response, this supple texture . . . you get an A+!”); one still-frame cutscene depicts a drunken woman making unwanted advances toward another female character (e.g., “Why are you acting like some creepy drunk guy!? Stoooop!” “[C]'mon, lemme have a little squeeze.”). A hot springs sequence also depicts women's breasts/buttocks that are partially obscured by mist, bubbles, and towels. The word “damn” can be heard in dialogue.
