* Based on a one-shot manga written and illustrated by Nakamura Shungiku.
The Hybrid Child is an amazing doll that can grow if it is lavished with enough love and care from its owner. Neither fully machine nor fully human, the various Hybrid Child models develop strong emotional bonds with their owners.
Several short stories of love, sacrifice, and drama: Young Kotarou learns the importance of responsibility when his Hybrid Child’s lifespan runs out. The tragic swordsman Seya learns to love again with the help of his Hybrid child, Yuzu. The final tale tells the story of Kuroda, the creator of the Hybrid Child designs, and how his lost love inspired their creation.
