Together with the rest of the school newspaper he is investigating a series of horrific murders happening in different parts of the city.

As Takuru is being affected by a strange energy when he is investigating the crimes, players will be offered three options that will decide how the character sees the events unfold: one real, one positive and one negative. The real version will depict the events exactly as they occur, while the other two will add certain a more lighted and even sexual vibe, or a much more violent and gore touch. How the character experiences those events will directly affect the course of the adventure, his relationship with the other characters, and the end of the story, so players will be able to enjoy a completely different perspective each time they play.
