Panicked, she gets off the train and finds herself at an unfamiliar station called Kamuy Mosir.
Seeking help, she walks toward some nearby lights, where she sees a group of people dressed in unfamiliar costumes having a party.
Without warning, she is chased by the group and is captured by a young man. Her captor tells her that she is dead and he will take her to the underworld, the land of the dead.
Still being pursued by other mysterious beings, Kurumi unexpectedly opens the door to the world of the Gods, where she must overcome fierce trials, explore the mysterious new world, and perhaps even discover what happens to forbidden love with the Gods..
