The day before the main story. The stage is set in an era when space exploration, where human beings around the world are enthusiastic, is ending. The companion robot “Hoshino Yumemi” at the Hanabishi department store and planetarium had ignored work orders and repeatedly abandoned the workplace. That's because of a certain "promise" that Dream went 10 years ago. A heartwarming story when the world was still peaceful.
