What is the plot of ESTAB LIFE?
The story takes place in the distant future when the human population began to shrink. The HDED (Human Diversity Experimental Department) was established for the purpose of protecting species and is working hand-in-hand with Ecosystem Management AI to find a way to solve this crisis. Through the experiments of this department, humans, beasts and various new races such as demons and cyborgs are born.
The Ecosystem Management AI decides to separate each new race into their own high-walled city. Each “cluster” has its own culture, views and values. Tonkyork Metropolis (a merger of New York City and Tokyo in the Kanto region) and Chicagosaka (a merger of Chicago and Osaka in the Kansai region) have both become experimental and futuristic cities divided by clusters.
The “Supernatural Renovation Project,” which divided Tokyo into several cluster neighborhoods, each with its own unique genetically modified population, isn’t as grand as it seems. The clusters are governed and monitored by an AI that makes it impossible for individuals to come and go freely. Most of the new races are content to live their lives in their own unique clusters, happily unconcerned about the other clusters and races. However, there are some who wish to escape their clusters. A group called “Nigashiya” helps those who want to flee to find a new or better life.
Who are the main characters in ESTAB LIFE?
Equa is a high school student who attends school in the Ochanomizu Cluster and also works as a manager at Café Vostok. However, Equa has a secret. When she’s not at school or working at the coffee shop, she uses her premonition ability called Fatal Luck, which allows her to see seconds into the future to help clients escape their heavily guarded clusters. She takes her abilities into account when coming up with complicated escape plans. Equa is the leader of the Escape Shop Extractors – a mercenary group that helps customers get out of their clusters. Fighting alongside Equa are weapons expert Feles, loving slime girl Martes, robot Alga and wolf-beast-man Ulula. Alga is responsible for the technical support of the team.
