Deca-Dence

With the appearance of the mysterious hostile life forms Gadoll, humanity has been driven to the edge of extinction. However, their ingenuity has allowed them to retreat to a massive mobile fortress known as the Deca-Dence. Its denizens are divided into two groups - Gears who defend the fortress against the Gadoll and Tankers who contribute in support roles. Natsume is one such Tanker that dreams of elevating herself to one of the Gears.

Having lost her arm years ago in an encounter with a Gadoll that claimed the life of her father, Natsume still holds onto her dream of returning humanity to the world outside of the Deca-dece fortress. Unfortunately her dream of joining the warrior Gears in The Power is dashed when she is assigned to cleaning the fortress walls on Kaburagi's maintenance team. When the fortress is caught in a surprise Gadoll attack, Natsume is thrown overboard and Kaburagi leaps into action with an ability that would impress even a Gear.

In a bizarre twist that Tankers on the Deca-dence are unaware of, their entire fortress is a colossal entertainment arena that allows cyborgs to do battle with Gadoll by using human Gear avatars. As one of these said cyborgs, Kaburagi is working for the Solid Quake Corporation that operates the Deca-dence. He is tasked with locating and retrieving chips in humans who are caught breaking the rules and are therefore deemed as 'bugs'. Digging into Natsume's background, he discovers the system believes she had died as a child, making her one of those bugs. Fascinated by this development, he agrees to train her to see what she is capable of.

Natsume's training is off to a rough start as she learns to master riding the anti gravity effect created from triggering a Gadoll's "zone" defense. They both realize that while her arm is effective during every day activities, it isn't suited for loading the Needle spears used for draining a Gadoll's blood. Kaburagi calls on a contact of his to create a new arm for Natsume perfectly suited for fighting Gadoll.
