Our Paradise (Summary)

This is a summary of the project I've been working on for years, in its latest incarnation.

There is a dimension parallel to the city of Edo that determines the fate of the entire world. Here, in the Floating World, the individual is capable of determining the shape of the known world and reshape the concepts of “good” and “evil”. The three Tokyo Babylons are their’s to control - the towers that influence the financial, political and social lives of people in the so-called “Concept World” they hail from. The Oni are capable of attracting the will of others through mana - the power, or energy which is required for change. Ordinary people become hard-boiled idealists. They become warriors.

Which army and way of thinking will ultimately reign supreme, here, and by extension, in the ‘real’ world?

Maiko Hashimoto has found herself caught in the middle of the war of ideals, lured in by the mysterious Ryota Ishikawa, and her only way out of it is to become a part of it. But what of the ideals… 

Solitude…

Singularity…

Solidarity…

Servitude…

Sovereignty…

Which does she abide by? What will she choose to fight for?

The world is like modelling clay waiting to be shaped, but, who will be the one to shape it?

The End
