Armed with this supernatural power, they were eventually able to unite and move the entire world forward. However, when Pure Concept got out of hand, the world fell into chaos.
No one knows how or why the Lost Ones can leave their homeworld, but one thing is clear. Wherever the Lost Ones go, calamity and calamity will follow.
Menou the executioner is responsible for finding and eliminating the lost. One day, she tries to kill a lost person named Akari Tokito, but fails.
