Summary of Sabikui Bisco
The story takes place in Japan after a "rust wind" swept through everything. People live in fear of rust, which corrodes cities and life in general. A boy named Bisco Akaboshi from the despised tribe of the "Mushroom Guardian" goes in search of the "rust-eating" fungus, a miracle drug that cleanses all rust in order to save his dying master. On his journey, Bisco meets Miro Nekoyanagi, an attractive young doctor in Imihama, and together they look for a countermeasure against the rust that is eating up Miro's beloved older sister.
