Set in a work where you can buy and sell bodies and memories can be stored on chips. A boy with a hole in his chest has no memories but does have a locket with a girls photo. While traveling, he meets people, sees a lot of the negatives of the world and slowly regains his memories.
I loved the art. It suited the story, the characters weren’t all cute but they weren’t ugly beyond words. In a way though, it’s odd. Most of the charters look like they’re about 12 years old, if that, their clothing makes quite a few look like they’re wearing diapers or under clothes. The odd one that’s shown that’s obviously adult are either “evil” (bit of a stretch… but “not very good people” just doesn’t…) or they’re sort of animal looking. And a lot got things for kids.
As for the story… it was a little confusing at times. Slow at either times. But it was interesting. Weird. Very weird. Everything about it was weird. But because of that weirdness, I had a hard time not watching it, even though at 2 episodes in I was about ready to drop in since nothing was happening and not much actually happened until about half way through the show.
I’m not sure if I’d recommend it. I feel like it’s something that would have been better if you… uh… smoke…
Not actually anything in common with these two. But if I remember correctly, one of the mangas the guys were writing had a similar theme about buying and selling memories or bodies or whatever.
