Story ―
“Looking for the reason to live.”
“I” opened her eyes in an unknown beach in the middle of the night. She had lost her memory and couldn’t even remember her name. As she was left there with no idea of what had happened and who she was, a man named “D” appeared from nowhere and saved her. D took her to a house where his friends were. There I meets the head of the house “R”, alcoholic “J” and mysterious boy “C”. She learns that the place she is in is “sea” (a separate world where people who have lost the hope to the real world and have decided to end their lives visit before their death), and that they are special beings in that world. While still having no idea of the reason she exists (the past she has forgotten), one day she meets a girl named “U”, who disappears immediately. For some reason I can’t forget U, and she believes that U has something to do with the memory I has lost, and so I starts to look for her. What will be waiting for her in the end?
