Publisher's Summary

A boy soldier and a girl Wonder Bearer. Their encounter holds the world's destiny-

I am Bird Risky. The world I live in is plagued by endless war between the Cardinal Army and the Miracle Army.

My sister, Anno, and I executed a certain plan to change this stupid era, but it went beyond our control and gave rise to the strange future of a boy and a girl who, at first, met each other as enemies on the battlefield.

The girl's name was Mugen. She was a 17 year-old strategic weapon. On the other hand, the boy was just one of many unrewarded soldiers. However, it was, in fact, he, Tomol Add, that held the destiny of our warring world world in his hands.

This is an epic poem about machines with lost dreams that fight and kill one another, meeting and approaching one another. Can we escape this nightmarish ball and future...?
