* Based on Dazai Osamu's masterpiece novel No Longer Human.
"Mine has been a life of much shame."
Tokyo, 2036 (Showa year 111): a revolution in medical treatment has conquered death...
By means of internal nanomachines and the "S.H.E.L.L." system whose network controls them, human beings
suffer no diseases, require no treatment for injuries, and are guaranteed a 120-year lifespan, free from illness.
Yet this consummate social system warps the Japanese nation in a host of ways: unresolved economic
disparities, ethical decadence resulting from deathlessness, grave environmental pollution, and the "Human Lost"
phenomenon, in which people themselves, disconnected from the S.H.E.L.L. network, become malformed.
Japan teeters wildly between two potential futures: civilization's restoration, or its destruction.
Atmospheric pollution suffuses "Route 16" in the Outside--the area outside the Route 16 beltway. Ooba Youzou,
who lives an idle, drug-saturated life, joins Horiki Masao, a mysterious man who associates with the drag-racing
gangs, on an incursion Inside--the area within the Route 7 loop where the privileged class lives--only to be embroiled
in a violent struggle. When he encounters a malformed sufferer of the Human Lost phenomenon, a "Lost," Youzou's
life is saved by Hiiragi Yoshiko, a girl of mysterious abilities who belongs to the anti-Lost agency H.I.L.A.M., and he
discovers that he himself also possesses extraordinary powers...
Degradation and death. Life and hope. Buffeted by fate, a man tears himself apart and cries out. Rage. Sorrow. Pathos.
Consumed by despair and bitter tears, Ooba Youzou is himself transformed into a demon.
A human lost... or a human who can find himself?
