MeiMei

The year is 2457 and after centuries of war and upheaval peace has finally been made between the remaining humans and their android counterparts. The megacities of old have all been repaired by the tireless efforts of machines and the design ingenuity of humans.

Meimei is a mechanic living in downtown New Tokyo running a small shop repairing the local androids and service mechs. Her father ran the shop until a few years ago but retired to the countryside when his eyesight began to go.

One hot summer afternoon a service android brings her an old broken down mech that he found while cleaning an abandoned warehouse to see if she can fix it. Once back online the mech starts showing her images of the times before the mech wars, and at night it sends out a coded message.

Whisked away into the center of a mystery that hides at the very heart of New Tokyo Mei is forced to confront a hidden truth, a truth that could change everyone’s lives, especially her own.
