“…after the decline of the once robust fields of science and technology, a new energy source known as ‘magic’…

“…fuels the modern era. Humanity creates forbidden biological weapons: ‘Gears’. 

“Those Gears eventually stand against humanity in a rebellion. Although they manage to overcome in the struggle for survival known as the ‘Crusades’, humanity’s losses are so great that even after several decades pass, their emotional wounds remain unable to fully heal. 

“‘Sin Kiske’, the child of a human and a Gear, heads to the wedding ceremony of his father ‘Ky’ and mother ‘Dizzy’.

“Their wedding breaks the ultimate taboo: a union between a human and a Gear. “
