Synopsis

Ordinary school boy Ren Fujii has a falling out with his best friend, Shirou Yusa, and tries to get on with his school life by hanging out with old friend Kasumi Ayase and older student Rea Himuro. However, when the town is suddenly engulfed by a strange series of indiscriminate beheadings, Ren starts to have nightmares about his own head being cut off by a guillotine. For Ren, the nightmares are only an omen of the fear and anguish to come. All too quickly his ordinary days are turned upside down as the town becomes a battlefield. Will Ren be able to survive and regain his “ordinary life”?
