Her first meeting with Torino Nishina happened on the “other side” after she saw “this thing” and nearly died. Since then, the life of stressed student Sorawo Kamikoshi has changed drastically. In this “other world”, which exists next to ours and which is full of mysteries, dangerous figures such as Kunekune and Hasshaku-sama appear, about whom we normally only tell in horror stories. Toriko and Sorawo enter this world in search of knowledge, profit and to find someone important. This is a story about two girls, their discoveries and their survival in a bizarre world.
