Yuki & Hitomi

One morning, 22 year old Hitomi leaves home and gets hit by a truck. On regaining consciousness she appears to cohabit the mind of another woman, Hitomi Landsknecht, who lives in a dystopian near future, where all men have gone extinct after a world-wide disaster.

Hitomi Landsknecht is a captain of the Guardswomen, a paramilitary organization in what seems to be the last city on earth, led by Julia. They live in an uneasy alliance with the Kisaragi family, whose leader is convinced that no effort should be undertaken to save humanity from certain extinction.

Matters between the two parties become explosive once the Guardswomen start experimenting with ICE, a technology obtained from the Kisaragi family and which might be the solution for generating the much-needed offspring. Or maybe it's something else altogether. The pressure mounts when Hitomi becomes involved with Yuki, one of the adopted daughters of the head of the Kisaragi family.
