Summary by Cave Scanlations: The human race is becoming more and more dependent on increasingly complex technology and machines; machines that inevitably break down. According to those lucky people who work at ATMT, the best job in the world is to be one of those special people who exists between the human world and the cyber world as "therapists", inserting their consciences into the broken machines via a proprietary interface to conduct the repairs. Such a job is not without immense risk and can result in a person being trapped in the device as an annoying, pitiful bug. Amongst the therapists, there exists a chosen few who have additional power and capabilities and who face the greatest risks and dangers - the Automata.
Why I like it?
It's something different. You don't often come across comics depicting worlds inside digital objects. Furthermore, this is one story where one might have to read it, at least, twice just to fully comprehend the situation or understand how the technology of this world works. (Some terminology will need to be learned in order to fully grasp it all, but it isn't so bad.) That's a great feeling. You feel a little lost, but that's all due to the mystery of the story and some of the vague aspects.
The characters are mostly likeable for me, although, the MC did
