Synopsis

Neo Hong Kong, 2097: The world has changed. Advances in genetic engineering and cybernetics have created an environment full of artificially enhanced humans and intelligent super-computers that operate using biological software.

Virus buster Serge is like an in between for bubblegum crisis and tokyo 2040, infact there are a ton similarities to 2040. as well has having surreal moments similar to evangelion. So if you enjoyed those you will like this. its set in Neo Hongkong during the 2090's, people carry implants in their brains that allow them to enter the 'NET', but a virus has spawned can infect people and merge them with machines.
