In the near future, a BCI controller that reads your brain signals and allows your consciousness to dive into the virtual world of the Internet has become extremely popular. Katsuro, who was arrested for a certain crime, was adopted by police officer Yumeji and serves his prison term while living with his adoptive sister, Rin. However, at the request of his adoptive father, Katsuro investigates Internet crimes in exchange for reducing his punishment, bit by bit.
This would be, in normal conditions, an entertaining read. The dynamic between the two hackers was fine. Except for one element, that is total stupidity (this is not the word I wanted to use here but I want to keep a polite approach). Usually I don't spoil in reviews, unless I think the story is so bad no one would deserve to read that, and I'm about to complain about one major detail so stop reading if you care. The final main twist is based around the fact that girls can't be hackers, so one of the two hackers makes the other believe he's a girl, so the other one doesn't suspect of him/her being his enemy. The literal shock of the hacker at this reveal makes it more ridicolous. Sure, one of the hackers's sister is actually a total idiot with computer technology and this is fine, but that's just her own problem, not a portrait of the female side of humanity. That girl whole existence in this story is to prove the shocking main point: girls can't handle computers, in fact the sexy hacker was a boy. Margaret Hamilton is laughing in codes at your faces. Of course, I should consider this little story's target. This is for computer boys that never met a real girl, sure it isn't for talented girls (those don't exist, duh). That was such a downer, because until the end I was entertained. And the ending wasn't even that bad, excluding this final... sillyness. They really publish anything. I know I'm making this big. Usually I just don't mind some stereotype, but this was used as a shocking main plot twist, can I laugh at it? I know I did.
