    I was hoping to see why Akstar became Zeno and how his arm grew back when he turned into Zeno but somehow the story event was all about that idiot nobody taking revenge on another nobody.

    It felt so lackluster comparing to all our previous story events.

    Was a total waste to read throuh. Was really looking forward to some background info, as those stupid events SHOULD give... but nah.

    Thanx for wasting time I could have used on pressing <repeat> in other parts of the game!! ::why::

    The story was taken from JP, which did not have Zeno, so there was no hope for the plot to be about Akstar and Zeno. It is one thing for Gumi to create a new unit by taking Akstar kit and give him TDW, it is another thing to overhaul a plot completely. It is, I am afraid, vain to hope that Gumi won't go for the least effort option.

    What was more shameless to my eyes was that Tomoe's background story is literally Sasuke Uchiha's one.

    "My older, beloved brother murdered my clan and my father." Sasuke
    "My older, beloved sister murdered my clan and my father." Tomoe
    "Let's live to revenge my clan and kill my sibling." Both Sasuke and Tomoe...

    does this game even have a story at all?
    I wouldn't know, been pressing skip on everything since the second part of season 2 or something.

    and the only story events I read were meh as well, so I stopped completely.

    It’s a different story in the way GL is a different game from JP.

    This is the backstory in almost every single revenge stuff with a betrayal implied and a clan system, be it the main plot or not. So... nope, sorry, in 97 when Naruto started is was already an old, old plot. Like, thousands of years old. Literally.

    So...my statement still stands? If A is equal to C and B is equal to C, then certainly A is equal to B :D In any case, the theme might certainly be an old one, but the parallelism with Sasuke just came immediately to my mind, as the whole setting is literally the same. Not to mention that it just shows once more how little creativity Alim's developers are imbued with.

    In JP story Akstar didn't turn into Zeno after the Order tournament? If I understand the game correctly our story is exactly the same as JP right? So even though JP doesn't have Zeno as a unit, he's still part of the story. So naturally we would want more background story about the relationship between them, but I guess it will be part of the coming story?

    When the story event was released I'm not sure that had already happened. Our story release rate and JP's one vastly differ.

    Yeah, Akstar was not really in it. He was like, on the side of most scenes making comments about how bored he was but how he still didn't want to be a part of the only thing that was happening.

    Both also met a friend that made them question their vengeance desire but ended up facing those they who they wanted revenge on anyways.
    Edit: both of the characters they met were the ones the story was supposed to revolve around.

    I can't believe Tomoe obtained the Mangekyou Sharingan.

    I couldn't agree more! This was basically a Tomoe Story Event with a few Akstar cameos

    Exactly, I was also hoping for something to tell his trajectory to become Zeno, maybe this is explained in the main story

    Those weren't just dialogues, those sentences basically sum up 85% of the plot of the Story Event :P
