You can even interrupt the other characters when they are talking to give yourself an opening to attack.

The story mode includes the character arcs from the anime such as Hitagi Crab and Mayoi Mai Mai. You can create your own battlefield in the free-battle mode and write your own story in the fantasy mode.
