4. Plot of Plunderer
The story starts in the 305th year of the Alcian calendar. The world is controlled by seemingly random numbers, with every person owning their own “Count”. On a more in-depth look, it is discovered that the Count is a number decided by an arbitrary logic. This means anything from the number of people you’ve dated to the number of chicken you’ve eaten in your life to the number of blue sweaters you own. If the Count drops to 0, you’re sent into the Abyss.
The story revolves around Hina and her adventures with Rihito in this crazy world to fullfil Hina’s mother’s dying wish: Find the Legendary Red Baron.
