Against all odds, a promise will be kept...

Set in an alternate universe, Japan has been divided since World War II. To the north, Hokkaido has been annexed by the "Union" while Honshu and other southern islands exist under US sovereignty. A gigantic and mysterious tower has risen in the north, easily viewed across the Tsugaru Strait from Aomori, the northernmost prefecture of Honshu.
