The popular running dystopian fantasy manga from the web comic portal Kurage Bunch will be adapted into an anime!

Long time has passed since the prosperity and civilization of the humanity has collapsed. Most of the humans and animals have died and the world is facing its end.

The complex city structure resembles a labyrinth. No one is maintaining the machines anymore, so they also stop functioning one after another.

When did everything end, or since when has everything started ending? This story takes place in such a world which everyone has even stopped thinking about that.

Two girls, Chito and Yuuri, are wandering this world with their vehicle Kettenkrad.

The beginning of a heartwarming story in the apocalyptic world…

Scenery that we have never seen

Sounds that we have never heard

Scent that we have never smelled

Food that we have never tasted

And the surge of emotion that we have never experienced

This is the expedition of recollecting the pieces torn apart

and  sensation left alone
When we reach that place, what will we think?

Howling, 40 degrees angle

Raging, 50 degrees angle

Shouting, 60 degrees angle

A wilderness beyond the heavy sea

The furthest south, far from the civilization

At the top of the Earth

We will find lights through the girls’ eyes to live tomorrow
