“Is life too hard for you? Then just run away.”Synopsis, Official Website (translated by ACN)
Long into the future, humans have come to take on not only their previous forms, but also a variety of other forms, including beastmen, cyborgs, and demons. The city of Tokyo became a number of “clusters” surrounded by high walls controlled by AI, and the free flow of people stopped, with each cluster developing its own culture and logic. People lead happy lives based on the logic of the cluster in which they were born.
However, there are some people who cannot adapt to their own cluster.
There are those who make their living by “escaping” such people to another cluster.
These “escape artists” are those who receive requests from “people who want to escape” and use all possible means to outsmart the AI and achieve a transfer between clusters that would normally be impossible.
Escape, escape, escape!
A story of five escape artists who help people who want to escape…!
