At the Shinjuku train station, back from work, Takemichi rues over his miserable life. Suddenly, he is pushed off the station platform and lands on the railroad. He watches the train come in horror and braces for impact; while doing so, he remembers his ex-girlfriend in middle school, Hinata Tachibana, who died in a gang dispute a few days prior. Takemichi recounts his middle school days and wonders if his life is flashing before his eyes. However, he then wakes up and finds himself with a realistic vision of Mizo Middle Five, his middle school friend group, in Shibuya Station.
