Deca-Dence Spoilers

‘Deca-Dence’ is set in a post-apocalyptic world where the human population has been pushed to the brink of extinction. A new form of life form called the Gadolls has emerged on the planet and rules its entire surface. In the meantime, the remaining humans try their best to survive by living inside a 3000-meter high fortress called the Deca-Dence. The giant structure keeps humans well protected from the gruesome creatures outside but what’s unknown is its long-term sustainability. No one knows for how long will it be able to act as a boundary between humans and the creatures outside.

The ones who live in its premise are known as Denizens. The Denizen population is equally divided into two forms of labor based on one’s capabilities. The first category, Gears, contains natural warriors, who have the sheer strength and will to face the Gadolls. On the other hand, the ones who may not be capable enough to directly face the creatures, use their respective skill set to help the Gears. The ones who fulfill the latter role are known as Tankers. Natsume, a young girl, happens to be one of these Tankers, but she’s got big dreams—she wants to be a Gear someday. Along with her, even Kaburagu, a Deca-Dence repairman, hopes to be a Gear someday.

Destiny brings the two together. And as soon as they discover that they’re both reaching out for the same dream, they instantly join forces. While Natsume’s optimistic attitude keeps them on the right path, Kaburagi’s expertise gets them closer to their dreams. As a result, they not only embark on a journey to make their own lives more exciting but also vow to save their world from Gadolls.
