Description

Rune Balot is a prostitute who is nearly murdered by Ciel, an enigmatic casino manager, who suffers from a disease that forces him to remove and store his memories. A victim for most of her life, Rune faces a choice. While on the brink of death, she is given the opportunity to live. It is not a simple choice for a victim, but Rune takes it. A professor brings Rune back to life as a cyborg with the ability to control electronics and partners her up with a self-aware universal tool named Oeufcocque. Together they begin to unravel the mystery behind Ciel and Rune sheds the role of the victim, but must struggle between seeking justice and vengeance.

BOILED IN BLOOD

Oefcoque's former partner, Boiled, comes after Rune and Oefcoque. A human manifestation of death and violence, nothing seems to be able to stop the relentless Boiled. Rune's only chance for survival is to commit with conviction to a partnership with Oefcoque. Together, will they be able to overcome the cold fury of Boiled? And what is the story behind his failed partnership with Oefcoque?
