The OVA project Aruvu Rezuru is created by studio Zexcs, based on a cyber sci-fi novel by Yuu Yamaguchi. The story is set a decade from now in the year 2022, as humanity continues to accelerate towards the technological singularity (the advent of computers that surpass humans). Thanks to advances in nano-assembly technology and man-machine interfaces, Nerve-seller Linker Nano-machine (NLN, a super-miniaturized wireless communications device that emulates neurons) has been brought into fruition and onto the marketplace. NLN bypasses the bottlenecks imposed by existing display / keyboard and touch panel interfaces, by connecting the human nervous system wirelessly to external networks – thus allowing the human consciousness to seamlessly link to networks. However, as the barriers fall down between man and machine, the consciousness of tens of thousands of people become lost in the network, in an crisis that becomes known as “Early Rupture”. The story follows a boy named Remu, as he goes to take back the soul of his little sister, who disappeared in net space.
