A girl (Shii-tan) is given a θ (theta) 'capsule' by a strange gentleman, which she describes as having "a sweet and fun taste." She begins to see and feel strange things, like fish flying in the sky, the sky and sea melting, and the feeling of sinking. She feels happy, yet alone, and realizes she loves the whole world. At the end an image hints that she died.

The Girl begins to criticize herself, feeling that her creating the Fantastic Garden is only a way of asserting herself, or perhaps self-fulfillment. When this world ends, what would be left? She becomes angry, and breaks the pen that she created the world with. The Girl, powerless, is swallowed by the "Shadow" - the Fantastic Garden...

Two girls, Rho and Lambda, consider the various possibilities and outcomes that come with changing the future, as questions a infinity of things. The one they seek is a "concurrent light (ray)" that goes through the past, future, and present. An "Ideal Solution" will be met after escaping the closed circle of the "Forgotten World."

Two lovers head into the abandoned city Atelestia to pledge their everlasting love at the city's clock tower - a wonderful charm that's continued for hundreds of years. As they climb the clock tower, it begins to snow, and it "even changes the city that settled into sleep into a theater." Though there's no one else in the city, the clock still tolls the hour, as if giving the two its blessing.

TriviaEdit

  • About the song Θ 'Capsule':
    • Theta "θ" is the 8th letter in the Greek alphabet. Though it resembles a capsule, the letter theta can also be read as a Greek shorthand for death (θάνατος 'Thanatos').
    • It's hinted the mysterious gentleman who gave the capsule to Shii-tan was the Dr. Realist from Star Girl and the Fantasy Cinema.
    • Continuing with that series, although the reason of Shii-tan's outcome is never specified, her fate can be seen in the background of the song The Runaway Boy and Lost Girl
Cosmo's Explication

The argument provided by cosMo...

  • About Rho and Lambda:
    • Their names seems to be a reference to the initial letter of the Vocaloid's name who represent them. Rho (Greek letter for R) stands for Rin while Lambda (Greek letter for L) stands for Luka.
    • Both girls have later apparitions in the Star Girl and The Illusion Paradise series, where their hidden back story in the Fantastic Garden is revealed.
    • CosMo posted a comical explanation why Rho and Lambda seems to have around the same height and body structure, despite the evident differences between Rin and Luka. The explication is that Len is dressed as Lambda for these plays.
