Intro: In a land trapped in eternal winter, Jed lives in a snow-white tower in the darkest part of the woods. Every year she and the townspeople hold a masquerade in the hopes that spring will someday melt away the winter. The Wolf and Hawk clans rule the town together, with the Wolves seeking harmony and compassion, and the Hawks an iron-clad fist over the people. The two clans spark animosity and distrust through the town, coupled with a stark fear of the Witch’s curse. The Witch is a red-eyed woman who will bring destruction to the town, and if she is killed, the winter spell will break. Jed is the very witch they seek, and she dons the disguise of a young man to avoid persecution, but when she comes into contact with the Kaleido-via, a symbol of both peace and war between the Wolf and Hawk clans, her discovery unlocks devastating consequences.

Intro: Adonis, a group dedicated to purging criminals, uploaded a video of gagged and bound police offers to the public in Shinjuku. They were executed a month later in another public video. Desperate to catch Adonis, the police created the Shinjuku Quarantine Act: everyone 20 or older was required to carry firearms for self-defense. With the threat of X-Day approaching, the police are in over their heads. Ichika Hoshino works for the SRCPO department which deals with the public regarding X-Day incidents. She is ambushed one night and a poisoned collar is locked around her neck. To remove it, she must work with a group of ex-cops, but if her collar is discovered or she reveals the wrong information, Adonis will release the poison in her collar and kill her. Who is Adonis and what do they want with Ichika, the woman they claim has the makings fit for them?
