The "unconventional Santa Claus hero action" manga tells the story of adults and children in the near future with a declining birth rate. An ordinary boy named Sanda finds out that one of his classmates, Shiori Fuyumura, is trying to kill him, because of Fuyumura's missing friend and a certain "curse" that Sanda is carrying.
