In the internationally popular MMORPG "Union," there was a legendary party called "Subaru" consisting of
elementary school friends. But one of its members, Asahi Kuga died in the real world at the same time when
she was over in the game. As a result, "Union" stopped its service and the other members of "Subaru"
became separated. After six years from the incident, Haruto Amou, a member of "Subaru" who now becomes
a high school boy, logs in to the new "Re'Union" and meets his childhood friend Asahi, who was supposed to
be dead six years ago. Is she a digital ghost, or something else?
