To avoid ruin, Aion’s Ringo and Figue descend upon the human world. They head to protect the two people needed to avert destruction, but both had already been killed.
Ringo deploys Aion’s special ability “Soul Hack” to revive their targets. Working alongside the Devil Summoners, Ringo and Figue pursue a mystery with the future of the world at stake.
