Amid the chaos and destruction, a young man named Riku leads humanity toward the tomorrow his heart believed in. One day, in the ruins of an Elf city, he meets Shuvi, a female exiled "Ex-machina" android who asks him to teach her what it means to have a human heart.

Kazuhiro Hocchi drew the concept art. Eiji Iwase returned as art director, and Tsukasa Ohir reprised the background art setting role. However, Yoshiaki Fujisawa composed the music.
