Trapped in a virtual world, humans have fallen under the influence of a virtuadoll. However, most humans don’t realize that this virtual world is not the real world, and thus are perfectly content to stay there. Welcome to the world of The Caligula Effect.
Long after the sun had last set, a group of young Machina Mages are tasked with the mission of delving to the center of the world to turn the key so that the sun may rise once more. Join these mages in their quest, one which will lead through many perils, and one which will lead to them growing close as friends.
