Riko yearns for the Abyss and wants to look for her mother, but she has no way of surviving the trip. However, everything changes after she meets a mysterious boy whom she names Reg. Reg isn’t exactly human and it seems like he came from the depths of the Abyss. The two of them embark on a dangerous journey, one from which they may not come back…
