Shibuya, 2015. A boy named Takuru Miyashiro attends Hekiho Academy—a private high school that was established after the town was destroyed in the "Shibuya Earthquake" six years ago. As one of the activities of the newspaper club he runs, he and his fellow club members seek the truth behind a series of murders called the "The New Generation Madness Resurgence."


Takuru Miyashiro
(Voice: Yoshitsugu Matsuoka)

A third-year high school student that is the protagonist of this story and the president of his school's newspaper club. He lost his parents in the great earthquake six years prior to the beginning of the story. He lives in a trailer parked at Miyashita Park, a location that also serves as an evacuation area. He makes people cringe a little with his insistence on calling himself "normal" and "in-the-know."

Serika Onoe
(Voice: Sumire Uesaka)

A second-year high school student who is part of the school's newspaper club. Takuru is her childhood friend whom she calls "Taku."

Nono Kurusu
(Voice: Sarah Emi Bridcutt)

The president of Hekiho Academy's student council and the vice-president of the Newspaper Club. Like Takuru, she lost her parents in the earthquake and lived in the same foster home as him. Accomplished in both in academics and sports, she is respected by both her male and female classmates.

Hinae Arimura
(Voice: Suzuko Mimori)

A second-year high-schooler and the president of the Literary Club. She's a modern high school girl who is up-to-date with the latest trends.

Hana Kazuki
(Voice: Sayaka Nakaya)

The only first-year in high school who is part of the Newspaper Club. She is extremely silent and usually only says "Mm..." Because of her experience as a net gamer, she is very skilled with computers. This leads the other members of the club to leave information organization and research duties to her.

Uki Yamazoe
(Voice: Inori Minase)

She may have a young-looking appearance for a 14-year old girl, but she's actually pretty calm and collected. She's really bad when it comes to cell phones, computers, and other technology, though.
