Story Details Edit

Before the creation of the world Disboardーwhere everything is determined by games, Humanity wasn't the only one who tried to end the Great Warーa war that tore the stars apart and was dismissed as a game. The rules were slightly different though, as the future that a certain Elf had envisionedー"If you kill all the stars and remain standing, you win". In other words―"Anything goes!"
In addition to an all-new novella about "Another End of the War" as envisioned by Think Nirvalen, this is a splendid special edition that includes the hot and loose short stories included in the bonus features of the anime!
"Now―let the war begin~"

The Gaiden volume covers six short stories including different characters about their exploits during different periods in time.
