Dominion's Paradise

From birth, citizens in Japan are implanted with the Dominion chip—a miniaturized computer that uses augmented-reality to assist in daily life. Eighteen-year old Daichi Ayanami, a conspiracy theorist, distrusts the tech but has learned to live alongside it thanks to his wholesome friends.

One destined night, deep sleep overtakes him and he reawakens within the presence of a goddess called Dominion. Daichi's informed he'll partake in "Paradise"—an experiment designed to simulate an MMORPG. Behind Dominion's beauty, however, lies an aura of deceit. What does she gain from entrapping thousands of people? And when Daichi finally reawakens, what will he be reawakening to?

With the help of a stern but cute cleric, Sanae Tsubasa, acting as his teacher, Daichi just might be able to survive this fantastical new world.

Greetings! This is my entry for the MAL x Honeyfeed 2023 contest!
Expect wholesomeness with good romance, alongside action too :) Lots of mystery themes as well, and maybe some edginess too haha (Especially the first chapter).
Please comment any thoughts, and I hope you enjoy!
New updates every Friday, Sunday, and Tuesday PST!
Also, I edit and polish every chapter for a few hours or days after its published, so the initial release isn't the final version <3 Final chapter versions on August 31st may yield various improvements, so please consider those as the final products.
Currently also going back to shorten chapters slightly to help not exceed the max word count.
