The story is set in the future, where T-Dolls fight in a war instead of humans. The majority of the world is inhabitable, and most of humanity is dead. Even though the dolls were once living a quiet life, they now must adapt to the new world.
Nozomi Yamane is voicing M16A1, while Yukari Tamura is M4 SOPMOD II. In addition, Haruka Tomatsu is voicing M4A1, and Emiri Kato is ST AR-15. Each of the characters is named after a weapon.
