Yuuichi Katagiri believes that friends are more important than money, but he also knows how hard it is not to have enough money. He saves diligently to attend the class trip because he promised his four best friends that they would all go together.
But after the class money is collected, it is stolen! Suspicion falls on two of Yuichi’s friends: Shiho Sawaragi and Makoto Shibe.
Shortly after, the five are kidnapped and wake up in a strange room with a character from a short-lived anime. Apparently, one of them has involved them in a “friendly game” to settle their large debts. But who was it, and why did they have such a large debt?
Could it be that they stole the money from the class to pay for participating in the game? Katagiri and his best friends must compete in mind games that will test or destroy their trust in each other.
