The original novel is set in the modern world, but there are doors that can lead people to the “other side” where strange urban legends and internet myths turn out to be real. University student Sorawo Kamikoshi discovers one of these doors and almost dies on the other side until she is rescued by another girl named Toriko Nishina.

Toriko has a mysterious charisma, but is familiar with weapons and seems to be looking for someone on the other side. Together the girls will explore each of the doors in the world.
