STORY

In the year 2001, the Japanese Empire’s attempt to
develop a next-generation Tactical Surface Fighter for
their army had hit a dead end. To solve this problem,
they decided to work with the American government to
build upon their 3rd Generation TSF, the Shiranui.
The project was given the code name XFJ, and Takamura Yui,
a 1st Lieutenant in the Royal Guard, was put in charge of it.

Yui had always been against any attempts to work with
other countries to develop a new TSF, and she departed for
Alaska’s Yukon base with a heart laden with worry and dissatisfaction.

2nd Lieutenant Yuuya Bridges, an American, was also
headed to Yukon Base as well. He'd been chosen as
the main test pilot of the XFJ Project, and hated Japan
because of the sad circumstances of his birth.
He too, was very unhappy with the project.

Of course, the two quickly collided, and completion
of the project seemed impossible.
But if it failed, Japan was doomed...

Set on an Earth pushed to the brink of destruction,
Total Eclipse is an intense human drama
about the race to develop a new TSF!

He is the main test pilot for the XFJ Joint US-Japan TSF Development Project, and serves as a member of the project’s Argus Test Flight. His father is Japanese and his mother is American.

Because of this, she has a strict and uncompromising personality and is very hard on herself. She is sent to Yukon Base as the Japanese lead developer of the XFJ Project.
