The story happens in an especially hot summer in the nineties, in a little calm town called Sotoba. A progression of puzzling passings start to spread in the town, in the meantime when an abnormal family moves into the since quite a while ago relinquished Kanemasa manor. Toshio Ozaki, dignitary of the main doctor's facility in Sotoba, at first suspects a plague. However, as examinations proceed and the passings start to heap up, he gets to be persuaded that they are the work of the undead tormenting the town. A young fellow named Natsuno Yuuki, who detests living in the town, starts to be sought after and encompassed by death.
