One day, they were robbed of everything. Mamiya Hibiki is a car mechanic in Miura City located at the southern tip of Miura Peninsula. On the day that he intends to propose to his live-in girlfriend Ogasawara Kurumi, whom he has dated since high school, he heads to work like always when misfortune strikes. A tunnel caves in, trapping him for four days. When Mamiya eventually makes it out of the tunnel, he discovers that the world has completely changed. There is no one around. The transportation network is wrecked and communication signals are dead. A directive for an emergency evacuation is repeated on the radio. He sees traces of blood in the streets. It seems that the world has come to an end. Mamiya finally encounters someone only to find out that this person is a bloodthirsty zombie. He desperately searches for Kurumi but she is nowhere to be found. When he arrives at a nearby fire station in search of survivors, he is confronted with a gun by Todoroki Hiro, a former high school classmate turned police officer. Mamiya listens with disbelief as he is told that the town has been designated a hazardous zone to contain a mysterious infectious disease transmitted by bites from these zombies. A few survivors have sought refuge at the fire station including Todoroki and his superior Hongo Daiki; a university student Hiiragi Kanae; a mother and child Mihara Shoko and Yuzuki; a brawny bike delivery rider Azuma Shinji; and Korean part-time mover Yun Min Joon and his boss Komoto Yohei. They are gripped with fear as the number of zombies grow. Are they a bunch who can pull through this hopeless situation together with Mamiya? And will he be able to overcome one crisis after another and see his beloved Kurumi again?
