Professor Regina Babylon has given the job of overseeing the Sky Garden of Babylon to Francesca, a terminal gynoid who is 5000 years old. Her airframe has the number 23. Cesca was her self-given moniker. She is the manager of Babylon, a maid at the Duchy of Brunhild, and Lapis has appointed her to be Touya Mochizuki’s maid.
God unintentionally kills 15-year-old Touya Mochizuki. To make amends, God permits his resurrection; however, because he is unable to send him back to his previous existence, he is instead reincarnated into a fantastical realm with one condition. Touya utilizes his request, which God alters, to enter the next world carrying his smartphone. As a result, even though Touya cannot use it to communicate with his previous world, the phone can still work normally, access data from the old world, and use capabilities that are pertinent to his new world, including the GPS function to travel to areas that are fully identified on it.
