In early May 1945, in Nazi Germany, when the Red Army men raised the USSR flag over the Reichstag, some officers of the German army held a mysterious sacrificial rite. For them, the bloody murders on the empty streets of Berlin are the best sacrifices for the ritual, which is called to bring back to life the Order of Thirteen Copies – a company of superhumans, the resurrection of which will lead to a complete apocalypse and the destruction of everything. After dozens of years, no one was able to find out whether they had come to the desired result. Not all people in principle are aware of their existence, and those who had any idea about this have long died because of age or circumstances, so rumors and gossip about the imminent resurrection of the bloody Order are still passed down from generation to generation .. .
The December day of 2006. Japan, a small town of Suvahara. Ren Fujii is in the hospital. Everything ever comes to the end, and even a close friendship that must go through with a person through life, in a certain period of time comes to an end. A couple of months ago, Ren and his friend Shiro Yusa had a terrible fight in an attempt to kill one another. Ren is still trying to return to the usual routine, and so he goes with a friend of Kasumi to show the ancient guns, where he suddenly sees a very real guillotine. That night the youth sees a nightmarish dream: right from his shoulders, his head is cut off on the guillotine he saw. Waking up, Ren learns that a man who was beheaded like a blow with a sharp blade really exists … Fujii tries to concentrate on pleasant memorable moments and their friendship with Shirou, but nightly, falling asleep, he looks at the same dream: the guillotine, the chase strange legions in black robes, incomprehensible persecution … Dreams are repeated from time to time, and Ren gradually thinks that he is between reality and sleep, and begins to move away from the reel, dreaming only of one thing: that everything is back to square one. No matter how dreary the former life routine, it is still much nicer than the horror that happens to the guy now.
And yet the nightmares of the young man are not accidental: Ren suddenly becomes involved in the continuation of the conflict, which has already ended a very, very long time ago.
