The show’s action takes place about a millennium from 2012 and is about a party of five young friends (Saki, Satoru, Maria, Mamoru, and Shun) who have always lived in a place that can easily be called an Utopia – green fields, azure rivers and basins, colourful flowers and happy people. Their world is governed with people with different powers – the Cursed Power and the Godly Power. Both of them are somewhat related to telekinesis. A certain unfortunate event brings the five main characters to realize the real story behind their current utopic lives and also – the truth behind the state of the world. It is not as hea;thy as it looks and may turn to ashes very soon. We follow Saki, Satoru, Maria, Mamoru, and Shun as they enter multiple adventures in order to bring a change for the better.
