the story took place in year 2022, where technology was so advance that many people had transferred their mind into the cyber space. Remu's sister-in-law, Shiki had joined a high school in the academic city since she was 14. one day, Shiki told Remu via Skype that she was actually talking to him directly through the nonomachinese implanted in her brain, while her real body was being kept in a Body Pool. one day Early Rupture happened and the network server got overloaded. minds were lost in cyber space, leaving behind soulless bodies.
the idea was so refreshing that at first, it was difficult to wrap our mind around it. however, as we slowly grasped the concept, it became somewhat realistic and relatable. it was most exciting the moment Remu found Shiki at her department but Shiki claimed that she was not Shiki but another girl that got trapped in Shiki's brain. with plenty of character development since then, the science fiction part of it became less boring and more captivating instead.
