One night, he wishes during a fireworks celebration that he live in a different world where life would be more exciting. He and his two delinquent friends Karube and Segawa are then transported to a post-apocalyptic parallel world called the Borderlands, where they must participate in survival games in order to stay alive and return to the real world. In this world they also meet Yuzuha Usagi, daughter of a mountaineer who is also a participant in the games.
