After two years in a coma caused by a traffic accident, Shiki Ryougi wakes up with amnesia. She finds, in turn, that she had also obtained “Mystic Eyes of Death Perception” with which she can see the lines of mortality that hold every living and non-living thing together. This is a modern occult-action fantasy where Shiki boldly tackles supernatural incidents with her supernatural ability.

In “Paradox Paradigm”, Shiki meets Tomoe Enjou, a boy who believes he has murdered his parents and repeatedly suffers from nightmares. As Shiki visits a mansion where the Enjous reside, she finds herself trapped within spirals of paradox. And this is only the beginning of a vicious plot by Souken Araya, the powerful sorcerer and archrival of Shiki's mentor, Tohko Aozaki.
