A butcher with a dark secret finds a little girl.
"Thank you for being born." These words could be seen as the thesis statement of the manga. Even if somebody is hated to the point of people thinking the world would be better off if they had never been born, as long as there is at least one person who appreciates them being alive, then their life is worthwhile and has value. The manga follows a kind-hearted psychopath named George Zanuff who just wants to be normal, who wishes he didn't have the urge to mutilate people. For a brief moment, he thinks it might actually be possible when he meets an eight-year-old runaway, Alice, and feels a genuine, pure connection with her and only wishes to protect and care for her.
