    • Synopsis
    • In 1969, Kenji, Occho, and their elementary school classmates made a playful ‘Book of Prophecy‘ in a secret base at an open field.
      Time has passed, and in 1997, many strange cases started to happen, and they had been predicted by a cult leader called ‘Friend’. Meanwhile, Kenji, who was living an ordinary and bald life, was shocked to know that the cases were totally as same as what he and his friends wrote in the ‘Book of Prophecy’. Is ‘Friend’ one of the Kenji’s friends who used to play with at the field?
      Convinced that the things in the ‘Book of Prophecy’ would gradually become a reality and ‘Friend’ is the person who is actually controlling all the cases in the back, Kenji and the grown-up classmates gather again to stop ‘Friend’ and save the world…
