Tono Kaoru heard a rumor: The laws of space and time mean nothing to the Urashima tunnel. If you find it, go through and you will find your heart’s desire on the other side of the tunnel… in exchange for the years of your own life. That night, Kaoru found himself standing in front of a tunnel that looked suspiciously like rumored, he found himself thinking about Karen, his sister who died in an accident 5 years ago. To Kaoru’s surprise, is the new transfer student Anzu Hanaki who promises to help him experience the mysterious tunnel – but what does she want from Kaoru in return?
