Rumors tell of a girl named Makoto Minase who delved into the story years back and disappeared as a result.
When an unusual young boy researching bizarre phenomenons meets one the story’s victims, he decides that he must discover the truth behind the horror.
This year, however, the ghost story has spread much later than usual… and with a chilling message from the very girl no one has seen in years, Makoto Minase herself.
