Here’s the anime’s synopsis as pulled from the Animax website:
“Are you there?”
The fight against the silicon-based alien lifeform, Festum that has led to the destruction of a majority in the world is now entering a new phase. Scattered fragments of the crushed Artic Mir around the world from the First Azure Operation are starting to act out of their own will. While majority of the Mir wage war against mankind, some of the Festum choose to coexist instead. A new chapter begins as a further evolution is about to befall the island; the encounter of a girl who understands the language of the Festum and another girl protected by the Festum.
