Plot Summary: Tadashi Satomi is a virtual idol known as μ who performs user-inputted songs and gains self-awareness through exposure to users’ bitter feelings and dissatisfaction toward reality. Wanting to save humanity — which she believes is continuously suffering — she lures people to a virtual reality world called Mobius with her songs. She then imprisons them in Mobius, thinking they will be free from the suffering of reality and that all their wishes will come true. Nine members of the “Going Home Club,” a club that was formed because the characters want to escape from Mobius and go home, try to find a way out.

Ritsu Shikishima is your average high schooler with a passion for philosophy, and lately he’s had a question on his mind: what does it mean to be happy? Take his life, for example. He makes good grades at school. He’s got friends to chat about the latest single from their favorite singer with. There’s nothing in his life that he could complain about, really. His life is perfect, idyllic even. But would you really call that happiness? Isn’t it a little too perfect? Why would you pick at the seams? Do you really want to look closer? What do you think this is, some kind of anime? He just has a perfect, happy, ordinary life. Whether he wants to or not. This contains the complete TV series in the original Japanese language with English subtitles!
