Kamisato Ayaka’s Constellations

A brief note is necessary here.. C0 Kamisato Ayaka is an amazing unit. Please do not feel forced to roll for a character’s constellations. They are nice to have and can boost a character’s effectiveness but they aren’t worth spending real-world currency on unless you have a large reserve of expendable income. 

However, if you do end up getting more constellations, congratulations! Let us get you familiar with Ayaka’s Stella Fortuna.
