Hyakushi Ono
Became part of the Death Bureau to track down his sister’s butterfly. Seems cold and unfeeling on the outside but is very passionate and often moved to tears. Has a sister complex.

Senri Ono
Hyakushi’s twin sister, who had never aged and remained in a vegetative state since her butterfly was taken from her.

Hatsune Sagawa
A member of the Death Bureau who wields her small body like a deadly weapon.

Shun Kanda
Hyakushi’s senior who prefers using large weapons. A cynic who can’t quite understand how Hyakushi works.


When a person dies, their soul turns into a butterfly and flies away. Holding the thoughts and consciousness of the deceased, this butterfly can last for 49 days before fading away completely.
In this world, the Death Bureau, a national agency that collects and freezes dead souls’ butterflies, lets the family of the deceased interact with the data in their relative’s butterfly through a 3D hologram. Their duty also includes making sure butterflies don’t end up in the wrong hands – without killing or getting killed!
