In the skies above Japan, a passenger plane starts to free-fall. But, somehow, everyone on board makes it to the ground safely! In this uncertain time after major forces in the world have made their wars, super-human Choujin have made their marks as heroes and villains, wreaking havoc or saving everyone. As is the case with the passenger plane, a choujin saved everyone. But when high schoolers Tokio and Azuma are accosted on their way home and forcibly made into choujin, they now have to navigate their new powers and decide for themselves who they will be.
This is a wacky horror story that is nothing like Tokyo Ghoul, Ishida's more popular work. Readers looking for another rich world might be disappointed with the zany and rather slap-dash feel of this world. Within the first volume, there aren't many characters to invest in, as the two high schoolers aren't given a lot of page-time nor are they yet developed as two individual characters. Fans of Dandadan or other campy comedy-horrors might enjoy this story, but it probably won't enjoy as wide a readership as Tokyo Ghoul.
