Death and reincarnation are inescapable, but what happens in between? Without warning and without his memories, a boy who only recalls his last name - Otonashi - wakes up next to a girl named Yuri who offers him a gun and tells him to shoot an angel.

Immortality is within reach, but if Otonashi remembers how he died, will he keep fighting or allow himself to vanish?
