Takemichi Hanagaki (Takumi Kitamura) is a 26-year-old freeter. His life is essentially miserable. One day, he learns from the news that Hinata Tachibana and her younger brother Naoto Tachibana (Yosuke Sugino) have been killed by the Tokyo Manjikai Gang. Takemichi Hanagaki is stunned by the news, because Hinata Tachibana was his first love in middle school.

The next day, Takemichi Hanagaki is pushed onto the station platform by someone and falls onto the tracks. At that moment, he goes back 10 years into the past. There he tells Naoto Tachibana that in 10 years Hinata Tachibana will be killed. This changes the present. Now Naoto Tachibana works as a detective and avoids being killed by the Tokyo Manjikai Gang, but Hinata Tachibana’s fate is different. She is killed by the Tokyo Manjikai Gang.
