In the near future, due to an unexplained rise in sea levels, much of the Earth’s surface has been submerged underwater. A boy named Natsuki Ikaruga, who lost one of his legs in an accident during his childhood, decides to leave his life in the city behind and move to a rural seaside town. Left with no relatives, Natsuki inherits his grandmother’s ship and submarine, along with her debts. His grandmother was a marine geologist, and in his quest to reclaim his “lost future,” Natsuki dives towards an underwater warehouse where his grandmother’s legacy is said to lie. There, he discovers a mysterious girl sleeping in a coffin-like device. This girl, Atri, is an extraordinarily lifelike and emotionally rich robot. Salvaged from the depths, Atri declares, “I want to fulfill my master’s final command. Until then, I will be your legs, Natsuki-san!”
