Synopsis

A bus full of high school girls are on a school trip. A sudden gust of wind slices the bus in half length-wise, killing 40 girls in the blink of an eye - except Mitsuko, our protagonist, who ducked just in time. The wind, however, comes back at her. She runs for her life... and bewilderedly finds herself walking to school with her classmates.

Mitsuko and her classmates Aki, Yuki, and Sur (short for "surreal") chat like they've done hundreds of times before. Was the tragic deaths of 40 high school girls a nightmare? The next moment, a school teacher with a machine gun opens fire, leaving piles of dead girls. Mitsuko runs again. Now Mitsuko finds herself in a peaceful street lined with shops. "What's wrong, Keiko? Today's your wedding!" says her old friend. Mitsuko is now Keiko, a 25-year-old woman.

Before she can resist, Keiko is dressed in a wedding gown. A pig in a tuxedo, holding a knife, chases her. What is this irrational world? One of the women tells Keiko, "As long as you're around, everyone will be killed!" Keiko is now Izumi. Is this a nightmare? Or is it some kind of game?
