After the Gates opened, a new breed of beings called Contractors developed, who in exchange for their humanity gained access to a variety of metahuman powers.
Misaki Kirihara, head of Section 4, is at odds with the notorious Contractor Hei in the Japanese city of Hell’s Gate. Underground, Hei is known as “Black Reaper,” and he and his colleagues carry out missions for the shadowy Syndicate, revealing bits of information about a sinister conspiracy that could spell the end for Contractors.
