Almost half of the residents in the closed city of Sakurada possess some form of special powers. Their powers are wide ranging; high school boy Kei Asai (Shuhei Nomura) has the ability to perfectly remember everything he experiences, while Misora Haruki (Yuina Kuroshima), who hangs out with Kei a lot, can turn back the time or “reset” the world. When the world is reset Haruki’s memory is also, but as she always remembers Kei. Together, the two of them can rewrite the world for a maximum of three days with both retaining their memories.
However, Kei and Haruki share a past that can never be restored. It concerns their classmate Sumire Soma (Yuna Taira), who died as a consequence of a reset two years ago. As Kei meets with various gifted people in Sakurada, he begins to wonder if Soma can be brought back by combining their powers.
