Within the safety of the walls, youths are raised in a nursery-style setting by robots. While life there may appear stale on the surface, the children are full of potential and curiosity. In many ways it is like a slice of heaven. The outside world is a hell-scape. It is almost entirely void of anything mechanical and is now inhabited by bizarre, yet powerful super-natural beings.
Maru, with the aid of Kiruko, is out there crisscrossing what was once Tokyo for heaven. But after searching for so long, maybe heaven is more of an untenable dream than a potential reality.

Masakazu Ishiguro was born in Fukui Prefecture in 1977. An multiple award winning artist, he broke though in 200 when we was presented with the Afternoon Four Seasons Award for his work on the short "HERO". While he broke through within the sci-fi genre, Ishiguro is possibly best known for his comedies; particularly the Japan Media Arts Award winning AND YES THE TOWN MOVES (Shonen Gahosha). Whimsical, stylish, and often surreal, Ishiguro's works are often put into their own genre - SF (Slightly Fantastical).
