Rainbow of the Horizon

"The world is unfair and unjust…

That's the second time I've said that, haven't I?"

Gin Sakato and Ringo Akanami's somewhat eventful life continued together with his ever so increasing number of companions in the unpredictable world they live in and discover its urban obscurity, as they blur the line of the 'unbelievables', 'believables', and the obliterated fourth wall. New people and new happenings came to their life as they move forward in the hardships and mishaps that are bound to test their individual strengths to survive in this (normal) world.

But the sun's hope comes shining down after the rain of despair and sometimes, rainbows of bliss spreads in the horizon. Remembering the past, living in the present, and molding the future is what they have learned and instilled to their minds as their individual roles. And therefore, the journey of life continues awaiting the uncertain tomorrow.
