Ikkyu’s Journal

This is a series of journal entries written by Ikkyu which help you to understand and connect with her emotional states.

It’s best to read each Journal along with the corresponding Comic Issue.

Share Ikkyu’s emotional and psychological development as she comes to terms with her new life and experiences with her lover Sync.

As you read you will discover what happens to a synthetic human when their safety suppression protocol has been disabled.
