Story Synopsis

The time of destruction is coming ever closer without a doubt. It cannot be stopped.”

To know death, to gaze at death, to face death.

Makoto and his allies have grown through the many meetings and partings they have experienced.

However, a boy says that destruction is the fate that humanity must shoulder. The boy they believed to be their friend tells them the truth of the situation without an emotion on his face.

The season changes to winter. Makoto makes a decision in order to greet the spring that is waiting beyond….
