In the year 2039, special agent Kaoru Mikogami is saddled with an unwanted partner-American-made military cyborg Alice, who looks like a cute girl, and has been sent to Kaoru in order to gain better experience. The reluctant allies set out on the trail of a dangerous new drug called Nine Heavens and a computer virus that once shut down international networks and has now been reactivated in a new, stronger form. Kaoru has also been ordered to terminate Mercy Specter, a dead hacker whose undead persona now travels the Net and invades the minds of those who use Nine Heavens. When Kaoru's sister Mamoru is threatened, he sets off to rescue her, while Mercy invades Alice's mind and awakens a new, more human alter ego. She has the memories of Kaoru's childhood sweetheart Mayumi, put there by the girl's scientist father who is involved in a plot to control the global network and create a new digital deity.

Based on a 1998 adult PC game from C's ware. LNV
