What is the plot of ESTAB LIFE?

The story takes place in the distant future when the population of humanity has started to decline. The H.D.E.D (Human Diversity Experimental Department) is formed for the purpose of species prosperity and works hand-in-hand with the Ecosystem Management A.I. to find a way to solve this crisis. Through this department’s experiments humans, beasts, and various new races such as demons and cyborgs are born.

The Ecosystem Management A.I. decides to segregate each new race in their own city surrounded by high walls. Each “Cluster” has its own culture, common-sense views, and values. Tonkyork Metropolis (a fusion of New York City and Tokyo located in the Kanto region) and Chicagosaka (a fusion of Chicago and Osaka located in the Kansai region) have both become experimental and futuristic cities divided by Clusters.

The “Supernatural Renovation Project”, which split Tokyo into several Cluster neighborhoods, each with its own unique genetically modified population, isn’t as grand as it seems. The Clusters are governed and monitored by an A.I. making it impossible for individuals to come and go freely. Most of the new races are content to live their lives in their own unique Clusters, blissfully unconcerned with the other Clusters and races. However, there are some who wish to escape their Clusters. A group called “Nigashiya” helps those who wish to escape to have a new or better life.
