Back Arrow is set in Ringarindo, a land is a world surrounded by walls. These walls have covered, protected, and nurtured the land, making the wall "God" - the foundation of the land. One day, a mysterious man "Back Arrow" appears in the village of Edger, located in the frontier of Ringarondo. Arrow has lost his memory but is known to have come outside of the walls. Arrow tries to get out of the walled land to regain his memory but is gradually pushed into a fight with himself.
