21-year-old Yuki Shinomiya (Eiji Akaso) had no friends and was spending lonely days in a part-time job. One day, when I returned from my night shift as usual, a strange man (Shuntaro Yanagi) whose abdomen was stabbed with a knife was sitting in the room. When the man woke up at the destination, he said to the detective that he was “Courage Shinomiya” and pointed to Yuki and stated that “this person stabbed himself.” Yuki who escaped from the place in a hurry becomes a fugitive in an instant. At that time, a mysterious woman named Zoka (Ai Yoshikawa) appears in front of her and is asked to help the revenge of a person who killed her father and decides to act together.
Zoka was the so-called “hill” where her inhabitants lived by walking around absent homes. Eventually, they meet the legendary leech, Kara (Kentaro Sakaguchi), who has the nickname of “Hill Hunting Kara”. Kara was also a leech who lived like a shell through the days just for revenge.
