Synopsis of the Urasekai picnic
The "Otherworld" is a vast and dangerous realm that remains hidden from the knowledge of the common people. It is also home to many creatures that threaten anyone who dares to visit it. To witness its desolate but strangely absorbing surroundings, one must look for portals that can be anywhere from secret elevators to entrances to shrines.
After a fateful encounter with a terrible resident of the Otherworld, Sorao Kamikoshi wonders whether to move on or to give up life. Meanwhile, Toriko Nishina wanders the Other World in the hope of finding her friend Satsuki, who she believes is lost somewhere in the realm.
When the two cross, friendship blossoms. To get most of the information about this dark dimension, the two travel from one side of the real world to the other. Sorao's and Toriko's bodies will soon be influenced by the Otherworld, preparing them for the many horrors that will come as they both try to achieve their goals.
