The anime tells the story of "two girls Momo and Fine from different backgrounds who meet by chance. A story about an unlikely friendship between human and vampire race that intertwines with the power of music." Netflix describes the story further:
Once upon a time, there was a world where vampires and humans lived together in "Paradise." This is the story of a young girl, Momo, and the vampire queen, Fine, who traveled in search of "Paradise."
