Anime Description: Saber Marionette J

In the distant future, when Earth becomes over-populated, what's left to do? Ships carrying loads of people are sent off into space to find new planets to live on. One of these ships, the Mesopotamia, crashes on a Terra 2 (a planet similar to Earth). Only six men survive.

In order to re-populate the earth they make clones of themselves. There are primary clones (identical) and secondary clones (where DNA has been tweaked to make physical appearance different). And to take the place of human females, they create androids called Marionettes. Marionettes that are tweaked with fighting ability are called Saber Marionettes.

One day Otaru finds himself in the Japanese history museum. After taking a look inside he finds a special room with a marionette. When he accidentally awakens it, he realizes this is no ordinary marionette, for she has emotions. This marionette (Lime) has a maiden circuit (otome kairo) which gives her the ability to think and act like a real human. There are only seven known marionettes with this circuit.

Soon after, Otaru also awakens two more marionettes, Cherry and Bloodberry. And the romantic, action packed comedy takes off!
