New - The Lenz
2039. It’s been years since the Earth Shift devastated the world with tsunamis, and some believe there’ll be more.
To forget the uncertain future, the citizens of the Japanese coastal city of Shibido immerse themselves in the Maya Lenz—an augmented reality contact lens that hides what they don’t want to see. Even when rising seas force an islander tribe to take up residence by Shibido’s sea wall, it’s months before the refugees are noticed.
Struggling Actor Yoshi Goto sees the refugees, though, and he fears becoming just as invisible—he hasn’t had a decent role in a year. If only he could afford a Lenz, then he could focus on his reinvention and forget about the sea coming for them all.
So when Maya offer Yoshi a Lenz and a role in their next mixed-reality project, he’s all in. But the deeper he’s immersed in the Lenz, the more a magnetic and unpredictable guy named Kai challenges him to see beyond the illusions. The last thing his re-invention needs, however, is an inconvenient awareness or an impossible romance.
But something even more magical than the Lenz, and more profound than love, is demanding Yoshi rise to his most challenging role—to be someone real in a world of uncertainty.

A Titan Technology initiative, the vertical city of Brulle was built in 2032 as a haven for world citizens wanting to transcend the limits of their natural forms. Mood implants, limb enhancements, body modification—everybody could have any body they wanted, allowing the emergence of the human-tech hybrid-races. But an ever-increasing stream of refugees threatened the hybrid's dream, and set in motion a class war that could tumble Brulle itself.
