Global warming has caused flooding worldwide and many countries have simply vanished underwater; a premise familiar from Patlabor and Blue Submarine No. Six, but employed here for reasons that seem to have more to do with the falling costs of CG water-modeling (compare to Aria) and the handy excuse for having lots of characters wearing tight swimwear. Gifted student Maia Mizuki fails in the application exam for the top-flight quasi-governmental organization known as the Oceanographic Agency, but is rescued from a robber by Rena and Shizuka, two employees of a multifunctional service corporation known as NEREIS.They've been engaged to catch the robber and blackmail the destitute Maia into acting as bait. She fills time before her next exam by working as a troubleshooter for NEREIS, in a series of setups that are enough to make Agent Aika seem demure. Maia's supposed brains are at odds with her pliant attitude; paid a pittance and constantly picked on by Rena and Shizuka, she stays with NEREIS through such thrilling operations as finding a stolen car, helping a salaryman save face with his daughter, and looking after an abandoned baby. Then she goes on a quest to find her lost memories, which have not previously been mentioned but revolve round her father's female bodyguard and her late grandfather, whose dying word was "Daphne." This involves a Mafia subplot, her being kidnapped by the Oceanographic Agency-apparently they want her for a purpose too sinister to just give her a job-and a visit to a ruined city where she uncovers their secret plot and her own past. Created by NeSKeS, whose choice of pen name confirms a fondness for the pointlessly cryptic. A manga also appeared in Young King Ours magazine.
