In the near future our lives will be organised and played out through devices known as Neurolinkers. Utilising it enables access to a virtual reality where there are no limits on an individual, for Harayuki Arita, this is freedom.
Neither rich, popular nor particularly attractive, Harayuki spends his time building his ideal self here. He dominates this space until it is cruelly taken away from him from his high school bullies. However salvation is at hand when Kuroyukihime, the school’s most popular girl, offers him another chance to escape and become the person he’s always wanted to be. Except this offer has a catch and it deals with his life.
