The word cerebrum refers to a gigantic system consisting of collision universes, which is called cerebrum universe. The story starts from a series of unknown murders, unravelling the secret hiding beneath the entire universe, ranging from horrifying conspiracies to galaxy wars, from anti-human betrayals to honourable sacrifices. Having realised her weakness and backwardness, mankind takes the last stand.

The synopsis for this anmie made me think I had mistakenly come to the wrong page. The story is nothing like this. It's about a boy who is a part of a school detective club who goes in search of his missing girlfriend and stumbles across the equivalent of an underground gaming community.
