Synopsis

The Shibuya Drift - a mysterious phenomenon where central Shibuya rises up and is transported at least 300 years into the future. Unfortunately for second-year high school student Daisuke Dojima and his friends Gai, Lu, Marin, and Keisuke, they get caught up in the incident and find themselves in an unfamiliar world stretching with vast wastelands and forests scattered with ruins. Inhabiting this world are hostile beings called “Revisions” that control large mechanical monsters that are rampaging through the city. When Daisuke learns he is the only one who can control a weapon to fight back and protect Shibuya, called “String Puppet,” it’s up to him and his friends to fulfill a prophecy and take back the present by fighting against the future.

Characters

Daisuke Dojima (Voiced by: Koki Uchiyama)

17 years old, and a second-year student at Seisho Academy. After being kidnapped as a child, he was saved by a mysterious woman named Milo, who told him, “You will be visited by a terrible danger. When that happens, you’ll be the only one who can protect everyone.” He blindly believed her words, and has spent the rest of his life preparing for that moment. None of his other friends believe it, though, and he has become a social outcast. But he refuses to change his beliefs, and won’t listen to what anyone else says.

Milo (Voiced by: Mikako Komatsu)

A descendant of humanity from the far future, which has been destroyed by a pandemic. One of the few humans who was resistant to the Revisions. She is an agent called a “Balancer” who works for the organization AHRV, which protects the future where humanity still survives. She has strong feelings of hatred towards the Revisions for their massacres of AHRV’s members, and devotes herself to the organization entirely. Emotionally inexpressive, she lives a logical, orderly life.

Chang Gai Steiner (Voiced by: Nobunaga Shimazaki)

17 years old, and a second-year student at Seisho Academy. Lu’s twin brother. An excellent student, and athletic as well. He dislikes Daisuke for the childish way he’s acting now that his dream of being a hero is coming true. But in fact, just like Daisuke he remembers the prophecy Milo gave him: “Doubt everything.” He has the capability to be a cool and collected leader, a talent he puts to good use in the S.D.S. (Shibuya Defense Service).

Chang Lu Steiner (Voiced by: Rie Takahashi)

17 years old. Gai’s twin sister. Just like her brother, she’s good at sports and gets excellent grades. Strong on the outside, inside she is dependent on her brother, and follows him everywhere. Just like her brother, she’s aggravated by Daisuke’s overprotective nature, and keeps her distance from him. The only member of the team who doesn’t remember Milo’s prophecy.

Marin Temari (Voiced by: Manaka Iwami)

17 years old, and a second-year student at Seisho Academy. A classmate of Daisuke’s, who goes by the nickname “Marimari”. Easygoing and cheerful, she’s beloved by her classmates, but she is also indecisive and lacking in confidence. Milo’s prophecy to her, “In the end, you’ll need to decide for yourself,” weighs on her heavily. When she was young, she was fond of Daisuke, but in the future she has complicated feelings about the way he behaves as a “hero”.

Keisuke Asano (Voiced by: Soma Saito)

17 years old, and a second-year student at Seisho Academy. Daisuke’s one real friend, and the only person who understands him. He acts as a buffer between the selfish Daisuke and the S.D.S. He’s always chipper and upbeat, but at the same time self-effacingly says that he “has no luck”. He clearly remembers Milo’s words to him from the kidnapping incident, “Accept everything”, and for this reason a part of him seems like he’s given up.

Chiharu Isurugi (Voiced by: Yoko Hikasa)

A beautiful Revisions with dog ears and a tail. Always calm and relaxed, she’s very arrogant towards the people of Shibuya. She believes she is fulfilling a great duty for the sake of her fellow Revisions. Mukyu’s younger twin sister.

Mukyu Isurugi (Voiced by: Yukari Tamura)

A Revisions who wears a gothic lolita maid outfit, and has dog ears and a tail. She has a sadistic personality and shows no mercy to the people of Shibuya. She outranks Nicolas, and thus treats him very harshly, but she’s very kind to her twin sister Chiharu.

Nicholas Sato (Voiced by: Houchu Ohtsuka)

A Revisions that resembles a stuffed dog.His full name of “Nico of Laos, First Name Sugar”, but nobody bothers to remember it. He has a carefree personality and enjoys never taking things too seriously.Chiharu and Mukyu slightly outrank him, and the two look down upon him.
