- Though Shiki thinks he's just an ordinary teen, discovering his forgotten memories proves him wrong
Shiki Toono sustained a life-threatening injury that wiped fragments of his memory as a child. Due to that incident, he was sent away from the Toono household and was given to a relative to be raised. Years later when Shiki is in high school, his father dies and he is ordered to move back in by his sister Akiha, who is the new head of the household. However, Shiki holds a huge secret. Ever since that injury, he has been seeing lines on objects, and when he splits open those lines, the object becomes destroyed. Only with a special pair of glasses is he able to stop seeing them. The day he moves back to the Toono household is the day he stumbles upon a woman named Arcueid Brunstud and, using the lines, cuts her into pieces with his knife in a temporary fit of insanity. When she suddenly showed up beside him later alive and well, she asks him to be her bodyguard! Thus, Shiki's journey to unravel the mysteries of his past begins...
