Its safe to say that a visual novel's story is integral to how well the overall package will turn out, so as always when I review a VN I'll be looking to give a broad overview on the story to avoid spoilers so things are fresh for your playthrough of the title. The story here sees the protagonist stumbling upon what he believes to be a military installation, as he looks for items of value in the ruins of a city. In this future, humanity has destroyed itself and the machines built to wage this war have now turned on their former masters - making cities dangerous, but lucrative for 'Junkers'. Upon searching the building, your startled by the host of what you later find to be a planetarium, Yumemi. She appears to be all that's left of life in the city, as she awakens from her charging station for a week once a year to await customers that will never come. After being promised a special presentation and finding the projector to not be working properly, you decide to spend a few days at the planetarium to put your meagre mechanic skills to work to try and fix the projector. The protagonist has never seen the stars afterall due to the fallout and constant rain caused by the war. During this time Yumemi spends her time at the entrance practising her introductions ("Why don't you come to the planetarium? The beautiful twinkling of eternity that will never fade, no matter what. All the stars in the sky are waiting for you." This will be ingrained into your memory by the end of the story) During this time you become less annoyed by Yumemi as the protagonist gets used to her company, and after a few days the projector is finally at a working state and Yunemi revels in taking up her professional duties for the upcoming projection.
