The project is set in a world overrun with the mysterious "Randolph syndrome" that causes sudden comas. Simultaneously, a massive underground realm called "Asylum" was discovered at the South Pole as the syndrome's origin. Weird creatures, unlike any on the surface, dwell there with previously unknown natural resources. To cure the Randolph syndrome (and to get rich plundering the creatures' genetic data and underground resources), people set foot in the Asylum.
The project also includes an ongoing manga and a game. The anime's story is set between the manga's and game's stories.

Kento Shimoyama (AntiMagic Academy "The 35th Test Platoon", We Rent Tsukumogami, Our Last Crusade or the Rise of a New World) is in charge of series composition.
