Tokyo Seven Roses’ is set in Japan during the waning months of WWII and the beginning of the Occupation.

After the war, Shinsuke learns by chance that the Occupation forces are plotting a nefarious scheme: in order to cut Japan off from its dreadful past, they intend to see that the language is written henceforth using the alphabet.
