Plot Summary: [Source: Wikipedia] The story revolves around Auto Memory Dolls (Jidō Shuki Ningyō): dolls initially created by a scientist named Dr. Orland to assist his blind wife Mollie in writing her novels, and later rented out to other people who needed their services. In the present time, the term refers to the industry of writing for others. While the initial function of Auto Memory Dolls is only to generate voices into text, a second group of people created a company that "rented out" beautiful talented women who, while having the same function as the original Auto Memory Dolls, also can perform military-related tasks.
