One day, 25-year-old Hasegawa Ryou wakes up to see a holographic screen floating in front of him. The screen prompts him to save/load files and an item shop, as well as his stats.

Чтобы отвязаться от надоедливых одноклассников, лихо спрыгивающих с карниза вниз по веревке, Мори совершает безумный поступок: без страховки забирается на крышу по трубе, да еще в таком месте, где это достаточно проблематично, даже для тренированного человека! Одноклассник Миямото и Ониси-сенсей в ужасе и восторге, ведь они профессиональные скалолазы, а тут появляется такой способный ученик! Но Мори не разделяет их восторга и не принимает помощи. Нелюдимый и гордый, он всего добивается в одиночку, и трудности скалолазания его не пугают. Он собирается покорять вершину за вершиной, с каждый разом поднимаясь все выше.

    Katou Narumi (19) suffers from Zonapha Syndrome, a rare ailment that stops his breathing unless he makes people laugh. He's been forced to abandon his training in Chinese kenpo and return to Japan, where he now works as a clown. The only problem: he's not very funny.

    One day he meets Saiga Masaru (11), the recent inheritor of a huge fortune, who gives him the first laugh he's gotten all day. When he realizes Masaru is being pursued by assassins, he steps in to protect the boy, only to discover that instead of conventional weapons, the assassins wield huge, eerie puppets. They soon encounter the mysterious Shirogane (age unknown), who controls a puppet of her own, and claims she was sent from France by Masaru's late grandfather to protect him.

    Their paths intertwine and diverge, splitting into two stories: Karakuri and Circus, puppets and performers, tears and laughter. The strange circus of living dolls that spreads Zonapha Syndrome, the human puppets known collectively as the Shirogane, and the puppeteers whose undying grudge set in motion both sides of this performance.
