A cyber battle sci-fi. In 2022, the technology of quantum computing has greatly advanced and many people have transferred their mind into cyber space.

Remu's sister, Shiki, skipped grades and entered a high school in the academic city "Okinotori-island Mega Float City (OMFC)" when she was 14. One day, Shiki confessed to her brother via Skype that she was talking to him directly from the cyber space and that her real body had been kept in a water tank filled with a culture medium. It's called "body pool" and Shiki connected to the network by nanomachines implanted in her brain.

Remu was surprised but he accepted her decision until an accident called "Early Rupture" happened. The network server got overloaded and users' minds were lost in cyber space leaving soulless living bodies in the body pools. In order to bring Shiki's mind back, Remu visits her apartment in OMFC and there meets Shiki escaped from the hospital. But the girl tells him that she is not Shiki and she happened to have taken over Shiki's body.

When Remu tries to figure out the situation, a violent attack strikes the apartment.

This short has an interesting premise on paper with figuring out the identity of a mysterious person whose mind has taken over the body of a young man's sister in a far-off future. However, the series has too many questions that it has little time to answer such as what Shiki was doing with the institution in question and why they were trying to keep her mind in containment to such a degree that they dared use force on her. Plus it ends rather inconclusively, likely to tease viewers over a possible future opportunity for Arve Rezzle to be given a TV anime series. Given a better animation budget (as the artwork looks a bit on the cheap and awkward side here) and more time to flesh out its world, this title's premise has a good amount of potential for what it could explore. But if no one is going to bother expanding on it, then this is nothing more than a forgettable entry from the Anime Mirai project as it leaves too much to be explored on.
