After witnessing an epic battle (known as a "Fes") between the Miminashi and the Prayers 10 years ago in which a Prayer named Jimi became a legend, a young boy named Echo has been longing to meet a Prayer again. Echo lives in a scrap town known as "Revechester", and one day when he's working on excavating the garbage mountain outside of town, he encounters a girl named Myuu ("μ") who is suffering from amnesia. Myuu is also a Prayer, and she has an input jack in her waist.

 

Together, Echo and Myuu set out on a journey to discover Myuu's origins and to unravel the mysteries of her predecessor, Jimi.
