It all begins when the father of Masaru dies, leaving legacy of 18 billion yen (about 138 million euros). His half-siblings (all from different mothers) and his uncle conspire to kill him, or abduct him, for the purpose of taking possession of the entire property. For case, Narumi ends up saving Marcus with the help of the shadow world. As the episodes develop, a tragedy in the 200 years long, it is revealed and it sheds light on the mystery of the origin of the shadow world, Automatons, and of the syndrome Zonapha. Each of the protagonists is a prisoner of a cycle of death and rebirth that is the result of the tragedy of 200 years before.”
