Hana Suguruno wakes up on a ship that is sinking. She and three others manage to save themselves and land on a deserted island. They know that they need to figure out what happened, especially as none of them remember ever going onto the ship in the first place!

What they do not know is that the people are on their island due to government planning. The government had planned for a natural disaster, and the worst finally occurred. A meteor hits Earth and brings life to near extinction. In order to keep life going, each country froze young people, who would be released when the computer that is controlling their cryogenics deems that life can one again be sustained on Earth. These groups are: Spring Group, Winter Group, Summer Group A, Summer Group B and Fall Group. Each group has one person to guide them, and seven healthy young people. The guide has poison around their necks, in order to kill everyone if life becomes too horrible to contemplate. The Japanese government took things an extra step and created seven Fuji. These Fuji hold seeds and books so that the young people will be able to survive.


There are a number of characters. Here are the characters from the Spring group, one of the groups that is seen the most.

What she does not know is that Arashi is a survivor with the Summer Group B.
