People in the era have a psychic power called "Juryoku", which materialize things they imagine in their mind. In the absence of advanced scientific technology, they are using the power as a major source of energy. One day, Saki and her friends find a small archive robot outside the town. It records the old history of the humans. It tells them that "Juryoku" was found in 21st century and the discovery caused a world war between psychics and non-psychics.
