In the game's story, Rei and her younger sister Mirai find themselves in the afterlife world "Hengoku." While they are both confused and trying to find their way home, they are attacked by strange and fantastical beings. In order to protect her sister, Rei awakens supernatural abilities and defeats the enemies, but her power becomes uncontrollable and she accidentally kills her sister. It is then that a demon whispers to Rei, telling Rei, "If you reap the souls of the dead in another world, if you sacrifice the suffering of your shed tears, the dead Mirai will be 'revived.'" Rei then makes a deal with a demon, and fights with her life on the line.
