The 15-year old Sakuraba Neku wakes up in the middle of Shibuya’s Scramble Crossing with no memories whatsoever other than his name. Confused, he looks around and notices that people don’t even notice his existence. Adding to his confusion, there are these mutated-looking animals roaming the streets. Example are bullfrogs with killer bubbles or scary dark bears. They are known as Noises and they are attacking people. A girl named Shiki suddenly made a pact with him and the two fight off the ‘Noises’. Shiki explains to Neku that they are Players of the ‘Game’. The Noises that they have faced are not the only ones they should be wary of. There are also Reapers, a group of individuals who are set to erase players like them. Every day for seven days Reapers send out a mission to players. Unable to finish it within the time limit will ensure the erasure from the game.
