The Divergence zone is a story that takes place within a wider series of stories called Type:Gate. This particular story is about a 15 year-old boy in a group home who is ignored to an absurd degree by everyone. He almost literally does not exist. Following a dream he cannot remember, he leaves the home to find a place where he can be a person, but somehow ends up in a parallel universe where the city has been destroyed. It is nearly empty except for a group of people with strange powers who do not ignore him and a mysterious organization that is hunting them. From there the plot will deal with the interconnectedness of all these elements: the boy, the home he grew up in, his strange effect he has, the people with powers, the mysterious organization, and the alternate universe. There is also a semi-omnipotent character who seems to be directing events for an unknown purpose.
