How many times will you die by your best friend's hand?
Break free of this cycle, or be doomed to die forever!

Just as you begin to settle in for a fun day at your best friend's house, something changes in her and she kills you. And not just once—she ends your life time and time and time again.

Your goal is to escape from this endless loop of despair.


It's Noa's birthday, and her good friend and schoolmate Nemu throws a party to celebrate.

Once in Nemu's room, Noa is pleased to receive a black diary as a gift. Nemu, however, becomes enraged when she finds Noa distracted by a photo she found in the bedroom.

Nemu, beyond the reach of Noa's words, draws a knife and plunges it into her dear friend. Again, and again, and again...

Noa's consciousness begins to fade... But when she comes to, she's in Nemu's room again, unharmed but terribly confused.

Just when she considers writing it off as a strange daydream, she notices the black diary from before is already in her hands.

It wasn't a dream...

Death claims you again and again.
Will you be able to break free of this loop?

Noa Asahi

CV:Honoka Kuroki

Noa is likable and congenial towards anyone she meets, earning her quite a few friends despite her shyness. She's smart and decently athletic on top of that!

Now close friends, Nemu wishes to celebrate Noa's birthday together and invites her over. However, something in her suddenly changes...

This is where Noa's death loop begins.

Akane Higuchi

CV: Haruka Yamazaki


Akane attends the same college as Noa, which is how they became friends.

She can be lazy about things and has a habit of slacking off, often begging Noa for help with homework or to mark her as present for classes.

Contrary to her usual demeanor, she has an extremely good memory and never forgets something she's seen. However, this skill never comes into play for her studies.

Suzuka Hayami

CV: Satsumi Matsuda


A student at the same college as Noa.

A diligent student, she and Akane have been friends for a long time despite how often they seem at odds.

She often finds herself having to keep up with the brash and reckless Akane, though she is sure to give her an earfull along the way.

Suzuka is particularly dexterous due to her mother encouraging her to sew at a young age. She's even given Nemu a handmade plushie before...
