However, the ‘Dream Fes’—a live event sponsored by Yumenosaki Academy whereby idols compete with each other—is dominated by an authority in that moves in the name of maintaining the academy’s order.

Betrayed by his classmates, the weakest boy plunges into the abyss of a labyrinth.

Failing to escape and stuck in the depths of despair, Haijme begins his journey to become the strongest as a Synergist, where it happens—his fateful encounter with the vampire named Yue.

“I’ll protect you, and you’ll protect me. With that, we’ll be stronger than anyone. We’ll defeat all that stand against us and break out of this world.”
