Part shoujo (girl's) anime/manga pastiche, part dark science fiction novella.
In a bleak post-war age, genetic reproduction is cheaper & more reliable than the manufacture of standard dolls.
In certain segments of society, young men are now made & kept as slaves & pets, issued with a limited lifespan, chained in so many ways. But Meigeharen is different from the others of his 'batch', and when Zander comes into his life, he finds it harder to keep his true self a secret.
"But I am trapped, too. We are all victims of the masks we wear, the roles we play, our lives nothing more than poorly scripted parts in a play written by those with the ultimate power, the overseers, the decision makers. Every cog fits, everyone has their place, desired or not, everything runs smoothly like a well-oiled machine.
But even machines can break down."
