Once upon a time, human voices had defined the true nature of all things, yet the invention of text changed the status quo, while creating a "Logos World" between the voice and the truth. Millennia have passed since then, where advancements of civilization have made the "Logos World" too big to control "texts." A group of young people dedicate themselves to counter the chaotic "texts" with their "Creative Voice Power" (創声力 souseiryoku; lit. Power over Verbal Origins).
