Many desks and chairs can be found scattered around the place, and sofas are in a bigger number. From cloth-covered luxurious ones to lovable ones with cat legs, the sofas of many different shapes and qualities serve as supports for the researchers.
Although the people from the manuscripts department steadily worked on the manuscripts to an astounding extent every day, they found themselves in the middle of a crisis. The cause was that a large number of astronomy books had been selected out of an ample literary collection purchased from a certain influential family’s warehouse.

In addition, the number of people in the manuscripts department was of eighty employees. Even without days off for a whole year, they would still not be done rendering all the manuscripts that had been brought in.

That was when those people gained the opportunity to come in contact with professionals from a completely different field of expertise – the ones unmatched at typewriting jobs, Auto Memories Doll.
