However, after Izumiko spent practically her entire life at Kumano until middle school, she wants to become a normal girl. It was decided that she and her childhood friend Miyuki (voiced by Kouki Uchiyama) would enroll in Hōjō High School in Tokyo. On a school trip to Tokyo, a mysterious entity known as Himegami appears and a terrible incident occurs. Izumiko's family carries a great secret that Izumiko is about to learn.
