The "Ultimate Lucky Student" Nagito Komaeda believes in the power of his companions and that hope never falters even in desperate situations. The Mercenary also has such brilliant survival skills. When he becomes Nagito Komaeda, can he evade the Hunter's pursuit and buy enough time for his companions to escape?

The "Ultimate Gamer" Chiaki Nanami is an introverted girl who becomes exceptionally focused when playing video games. She is particularly good at strategy games as well as any other genres. The Mechanic is also well-versed in mechanical engineering and specializes in manipulating a mechanical doll. With the combined knowledge of the two, there will surely be a mechanical revolution in the manor.
