Esposing the idea that no one need bow to a god in an age of ease and comfort, the salaryman eats his words and is reincarnated as a young girl named Tanya in an alternate timeline where World War I is just beginning. Can Tanya live our her days in ease while still maintaining her lack of faith or will her hubris catch up with her? Also featuring: Tokidoki, Cytus 2, and NOS4A2.
