As the Japanese server (JP) precedes the North American (NA) by nearly 2 years, there are numerous game features and quality-of-life differences between the two. This list is geared towards highlighting and clariying some of the differences.

Menu Screens

  • Players will immediately notice that the home screen features a different coloring and theme song (Utsuroi), to reflect the further progress of the game's story (don't worry, Kakawari fans - that can still be heard during file downloads).

  • The extra button on the middle of this menu is used for Spirit Enhancement; it is only available for characters where this feature has been unlocked.

Game Modes

  • The Awakening & Strengthening Quests used to obtain Orbs and Books for Magical Girl updates no longer varies by day; all elemental realms are available every day in 4 different difficulty levels.
  • Item drop rates in Story Quests are higher.
  • Events normally last longer; simultaneously, event shops normally require more currency to clear.
  • The daily Missions do not have the same requirements or rewards


  • There are significantly more Memoria on the JP server. Additionally, most Memoria from events now come Max Ascended/Max level, meaning the player does not have to purchase and level multiple copies anymore.

Shops & Gacha

  • The paid Magia Stone shop was recently added which requires purchased Magia Stones (free stones from Missions, Quests, etc. will not be accepted).

Mechanics & Items

Quality of Life

  • Auto battle is available for more game modes, even for the first battle.
  • 3x speed is available for some previously-cleared battles.
  • A code redemption option is available in the Settings menu for bonus codes from physical purchases.
