As he is forced to see these lines everywhere, Shiki is distraught until he meets a mage girl who gives him glasses that allow him to live a normal life.

One day Shiki’s life takes a turn for the worst when, on the way to school, he meets a blonde woman and he’s overcome with the urge to kill her.
