The Crimson Denizens have turned our world into a merciless battlefield, feasting on the life energy of innocent humans. These enigmatic beings, hailing from a parallel universe, leave behind only fragments of souls known as "Torches," soon to be obliterated along with the victims' very existence from human memory. With unwavering determination, a group of valiant warriors known as Flame Hazes rise up, striving to bring an end to this unseen bloodshed. Enter Yuuji Sakai, an ordinary high school student whose life takes an unimaginable turn. Trapped within the clutches of a temporal crevice, he finds himself under attack by a Denizen. Just as hope seems to fade, a savior emerges—a nameless hunter, her piercing gaze ablaze with fiery determination, her crimson hair a symbol of unyielding power. Yet, before Yuuji can comprehend the full extent of his predicament, he discovers that he has been reduced to a mere Torch—a mere fragment of memory on the verge of annihilation.
