In a dystopian world, power is unevenly distributed among humans based on a fixed number that is imprinted on a particular part of their bodies. Somewhere in these portent lands, a young girl named Hina lives a peaceful life under the protection of her mother. Little does she know that her world is about to completely change for the worse. One day, her mother’s number goes down to zero and with this, she forced to face the same fate as many others. She gets dragged down to the darkness of the Abyss but before she leaves, she asks Hina to look for the Legendary Ace and even gives her a Glass Orb that contains 10,000 numbers. With this, Hina embarks on a journey to fulfill her mother’s last words.
After looking for the Ace for years, she meets a mysterious Knight named Licht and his boss, Nana, who complains about how they’re forced to obey anyone who has a higher number count. Soon after this, she runs into a man who claims to be the Ace but is actually is just trying to fool her. When he tries to molest her, Hina reveals her mother’s Orb and orders him to leave her alone. He then tries to steal all of her numbers and only leaves her with one. That’s when Licht comes to her rescue and reveals that he is Legendary Ace. To prove this, he shows how his number count has fallen back to negatives.
He then swears that he won’t spare the man who stole Hina’s number and even shows his sword that has the number 5700 carved on it. This reveals that he has killed 5700 men with his sword. This event marks the beginning of Hina’s long journey with Licht but it is far from being over. Destiny will certainly again bring them together.
