The story follows a high school student, Yuji Sakai, who discovers that he has been replaced by a torch, a human-like being that exists only in people's memories. He meets a sword-wielding girl, Shana, who hunts down those torches that have become out of balance.

The show stars Satoshi Hino as the male protagonist, Yuji Sakai, who initially seems like an ordinary high school student but discovers his role in the fight against the Tomogara.

Mamiko Noto plays the role of Hecate, a seemingly emotionless and mysterious girl who works for the leader of the Tomogara, known only as the "Snake of the Festival".

Hirofumi Nojima takes on the role of Sydonay, a powerful Tomogara who serves as the chief warrior of the Snake of the Festival.
