Madoka Akagi grew up in Mashiro, a port town in the Kantō region. After graduating from a local university, she worked for a kamaboko maker, but changed jobs to work for ADventure, a small advertising agency in Tokyo, in order to become a creator, which she had longed to be since her school days. Madoka moved to Tokyo to pursue her dream, but reality was not so sweet. The glittering world she had imagined was not what she had in mind. In addition, she ends up taking on a presentation that holds the fate of the company in its hands. Then, Madoka receives a package from her mother. In it is a Game Boy and Pokémon Red cartridge that she used to play as a child. She starts playing Pokemon Red for the first time in 20 years.
