There was a terrible accident in VR MMORPG Sword Art Online in which 10,000 players got trapped inside the game on the day of the launch. This leads to the decrease in popularity of VR gaming and the destruction of Nervergear’s VR device used in Sword Art Online. But VR gaming again sees a rise with the launch of AmuSphere along with Seed, a development support package that works without a license.

The show follows the life of Karen Kohiruimaki, a university student studying in Tokyo who is much taller than her peers. Her large stature leads to insecurities that she’s unable to overcome so turns to the gaming world for escapism.

She plays games after games hoping for her in-game avatar to be a short character which she finally achieves in Gun Gale Online. In love with her avatar, she puts everything into the game as LLENN and becomes a cold-blooded player. In the game, Karen transforms into a child-sized character in a pink outfit, called the ‘Pink Devil’ who ruthlessly murders other players.
