Funimation describes the show as:

Earth ended years ago. In its place is a planet built from gears and clockwork parts. This is the home of high school student, Naoto Miura, a brilliant amateur tinkerer and an oddball who can hear and feel the movement of gears. One day, a black box comes crashing through the roof of his house, and inside of it is a female automaton. Her presence and his genius are bound to change the world.
