A 15-year-old boy named Koichi Sakakibara is forced to move to a suburban town in the mountains called Yomiyama to live with his grandparents in the spring of 1998. One day he suffers a seizure brought on by a chronic lung condition and collapses, but luckily he’s taken to the hospital in time to save his life. While in recovery at the hospital, he sees a beautiful girl wearing an eye patch and becomes fixated on her before she makes an odd remark about the morgue on the second floor and leaves suddenly.

He meets up with her again when he attends middle school. Her name is Mei Misaki and Koichi can’t help but notice how the other students and teachers at the school seem to treat her as if she doesn’t exist. He makes several attempts to get to know her better, but fails repeatedly. However, when tragedy strikes several of their classmates, she’s the only person who can help him unravel the mystery behind a string of accidental deaths.
