Summary :

A new evolved race of humans called Diclonius has been discovered. Unfortunately, they appear to be mentally unstable and violent, which, when coupled with their special "Vectors", creates a fear of them by normal humans. One particularly strong Diclonius named Lucy escapes the prison in which they are held after killing many guards, but her personality got split into herself, and an ignorant self that can only say "nyu". She meets up with a kind pair, Kouta and Yuka, who take her in and try to teach her how to live properly.

The story involves human mutations called "dicloniuses," who grow horns on their heads and possess telekinetic powers, in the form of invisible "arms" called vectors. The tendency for violence among dicloniuses varies among characters. Certain scientists contain them in a Facility in cells, where they are subject to inhumane experiments to test their abilities or where they await execution for being too dangerous. An infectious virus is also associated with the mutation. This virus is spread through non-lethal contact with the vectors of a diclonius. The main non-mutant character in the story is Kouta, who ends up becoming increasingly involved with these dicloniuses, as they seek refuge from the scientists. The main diclonius character is Lucy/Nyuu, a killer whose alter ego is a hapless and very cute child whose vocabulary and intelligence are quite limited. After a large amount of choice occurrences, the lives of these two characters become inexplicably intertwined.
