The “Supernatural Renovation Project” divides Tokyo with its towering walls into several residential areas within the Cluster, each with unique genetically modified populations, run by artificial intelligence.
Most people live their lives in their own unique Clusters, happily unconcerned with the afterlife. However, there are some who managed to escape to other Clusters. An outfit called Nigashiya helps those who want to escape.
