Game-loving high school student Akira Shiroyanagi survives an encounter with a monster, only to be fatally wounded by a girl named Mion. Soon after, he wakes to find himself part of an "ability focus group," a large group of people granted powerful abilities and forced to fight - and possibly kill - one another!
Another ability focus group member is Yuuri Amagake, an actions-over-words high school student. Her opponent in the first program is Kazuto Kiryu, a perverted old man. Can Yuuri get past his lecherous attitude and put her ability to good use?
The second program is revealed to be a five-on-five team battle, Akira finds himself on the same team as his first opponent, Kirisaki, as well as Yuuri, Shin Kumagiri, and Satoru Sawatari. While the other four begin revealing their abilities, Akira realizes the inherent danger of doing so.
