About

The story takes place in the near future, where scientists and innovators have finally discovered how to make a near-perfect android to help humans with their daily necessities. At first, they were only produced to help people in their homes, but then slowly but surely they began to penetrate the industrial sector as workers. Soon, they were already replacing humans. Many were satisfied, but many were not. People began protesting against the use of androids in the industrial sector, resulting in the destruction of androids here and there by angry protesters. This caused severe damage to the industrial stock market. For the first time in human history, human rights won over corrupt leaders, as there was nothing they could do to suppress the protests of the people. Today, androids are limited to performing housework or helping elderly people, focusing only on serving humans. Even though laws were passed prohibiting the use of androids beyond certain situations, there are still many people who attempt to use broken androids for activities like manufacturing weapons, dealing in the black market, and other illegal activities. Thus, the world isn’t at peace as everyone dreamed about.

After Inazuma Kazuya lost his mother due to an unknown reason, his father, who is a renowned scientist, took Kazuya to another city. But before Kazuya left the city, he promised to play with his friend Kotobuki Risu for the last time, only to find Risu killed in a car accident right in front of his eyes. Losing both his mother and his friend brings Kazuya trauma, as later he always blamed himself for what happened and felt powerless to do anything. Years passed, and Kazuya decided to move back to Ringo City while enrolling in a private high school, Kiyoku High School. He determined that he was going to find peace for himself, thinking that he couldn’t live with guilt forever. He lives in a mixed dorm and made new friends: Asami Mao, an energetic yet caring girl; and a mysterious girl talented in music, Kamome Saaya. For a time, Kazuya’s life went smoothly. Slowly but surely, he began to come to terms with all that had happened and started to make peace with himself. But things turn upside down as Kazuya sees his supposedly dead childhood friend. His hand suddenly shivers and his face turns white. All the memories about his childhood friend, accompanied by the guilt, sweep over him like a torrent in a deep sea. Kazuya then approaches the girl and abruptly asks her about everything that he knows about her. Much to Kazuya’s surprise, the girl doesn’t know him. She only introduces herself as Kotobuki Risu. Her voice, her crimson-red eyes, her gesture, and everything else is just the same. Kazuya is positive that she is Risu herself. But why doesn’t she remember him?

 Inazuma Kazuya

An infamous transfer student known for his cool, composed, yet kind attitude. Everyone also knows him as someone who is ‘not so good academically, but godly in physical activities’, something proved by how many sports clubs are begging him to join them or be a temporary member for a tournament, to which Kazuya gladly helps. It can’t be helped that Kazuya is in the list of popular boys to go out with by the girls in the school. However, the small things they know regarding how Kazuya lost his mother and best friend so suddenly tosses Kazuya into a pit of guilt. Regardless, he came back to Ringo City to make peace with himself without knowing he’d meet his supposedly dead childhood friend, Risu, once again.

Kotobuki Risu 

The supposedly dead childhood friend of Kazuya. She was turned into an android by her father because she was dead and her father still wanted to see her smile. She lost all of her emotions in the process, leaving her but an empty vessel of a ‘living’ android. She may appear as the most precious thing to protect in this world, but under her cute and fragile-looking appearance, she is actually the strongest android in existence on earth.

Asami Mao

Her smile is her best quality, and it’s something that everyone in Kiyoku High School loves. She’s the girl with the best smile that will melt even the coldest heart, Asami Mao. Besides her cheerful, caring, and energetic nature, her abundant love for felines makes her seem even cuter. Adding to Asami Mao’s good qualities is the fact that she is a good engineer—she builds cute feline robots flawlessly. How perfect can she be? None would doubt her perfection, unless they happen to know about the big hollow left in her heart, a hollow so big that she can barely feel an emotion at all. Her encounters with Kazuya change her little by little, as she gradually feels that Kazuya has the same pain as she does, if only not much bigger.

Kamome Saaya

The mysterious elegant yet cute girl who barely talks and has a sharp gaze—these are basically the words people use to describe her… in their minds. Because of her sharp gaze, people often mistook her for being angry. She often got into problems because of that, mainly with upperclassmen. She dreams of becoming a great musician just like her mother once was, and she actually has the passion and talent for it. However, as the result of one fateful night when she was kidnapped, she was about to throw away that dream and almost hate herself for it. 

Kotobuki Ryuu 

A newly transferred student who takes the entire school by storm. He immediately overthrows Kazuya’s position as the most influential yet popular student in school. Compared to Kazuya, Ryuu can do anything slightly better, he is not a dimwit like Kazuya, and he is also charming. Kazuya isn’t bothered by Ryuu’s existence or even jealous because all the attention is going to him. One thing Kazuya cannot accept about Ryuu is that Kazuya doesn’t remember that Risu had an older brother. Ryuu knows everything about Risu and decides to help Risu regain all her memories together with Kazuya, but what is his purpose?
