Synopsis by Cammila Collar
Set in an alternate history of Japan during second World War, Steel Angel Kurumi begins with 14-year-old Nakahito accepting a dare to enter a house his classmates all say is owned by a "mad scientist." What Nakahito discovers there is what looks like a life-sized doll. Just as he steps closer to examine her, a series of bombings tip her into his arms and, quite accidentally, he kisses her, thus awaking what he finds is actually an android named Kurumi. A true blend of science and magic, Kurumi's lifelike but mechanical body houses the real heart of an angel. Kurumi immediately falls in love with Nakahito, devoting herself to him completely, but things aren't all happy and romantic; the government wants to get its hands on Kurumi, and faced with the danger of losing her to potentially malicious people, Nakahito begins to realize how dear she is to him.
