One of our editors got really excited at the capabilities of the new digital-colouring A.I., palette.fm, and decided to use it to generate a colour version. We plan to release 1-2 chapters a week till we're done. Our flagship series deserves it. For an actual content synopsis, check out the entry for the monochrome version of the series, which you can find under "Related". P.S.: Don't be too jarred by the heterochromic eyes. Machine learning has limits. We encourage everyone to try it yourselves!
