Kanzaki Hitomi is your typical high school student and member of the girl's track team. Hitomi has one slightly unusual skill however, she is extremely accurate at telling fortunes using her tarot cards. During practise, Hitomi has a vision of a strangely dressed young man standing in the midst of the track. As she runs through the illusionary boy however, she faints and finds herself facing visions of huge mecha and mass destruction. What are these visions and what do they have to do with Kanzaki?

However, Hitomi has more pressing matters when she finds out that Amano-sempai, a member of the boys track team will be leaving to go abroad. Despite her skill with fortune telling, she's never looked at her possible future with Amano-senpai. However, as she reads into what her tarot cards tell her, she finds that the two are indeed to be separated...
