Original Summary

Do you believe in destiny? Is it true that our will has nothing to do with the world's continual revolution? This is the story of a group of 6 boys and girls. They all possess the strange power of being able to see the future ahead of them, and they only use this ability among themselves. They are innocent; They have no responsibility. And yet.... “This is… Boogiepop?” When the foresight of these six made this visage of me appear, the wheel of fate started turning.

This is the 3rd chapter in Boogiepop, the series from the winner of the 4th Dengeki Game Novel Grand Prize, Kouhei Kadono.

Will the choice these six make bring salvation, or destruction?[1]
