In 2061, Japan was ruled by multiple states. The world, including Japan, has been consolidated under the rule of four trade blocs. People live under constant oppression with humanoid war machines called AMAIM patrolling its streets. Amō Shiiba, a young boy who loves machines, meets an autonomous AI, Gai.
