Synopsis of Koukaku no Pandora

Aboard a cruise ship heading to picturesque Cenancle Island, cyborg Nene Nanakorobi, a young woman who dreams of world peace, meets inventor Uzal Delilah. The two quickly become friends, paired with Uzal’s cyborg pet, Clarion. Soon after saying goodbye, a terrorist attack on the island threatens to destroy their friendship. In an attempt to save her new friend, Uzal gives Nene the ability to use Clarion’s body’s Pandora Device before apparently dying. With this power, Nene can temporarily master never-before-seen abilities, even in this advanced world.
