The teaser PV depicts the protagonist, Tomorrow, and the angel, Nasse, in a mixture of pictures from the original work and live action, with the mysterious catchphrase “I want to be happy” at the end of the video.
Mirai Kakehashi, who lost her family in an accident, was taken in by her aunt and her family, but the horrific child abuse by the whole family made her lose the will to live, and on the day she graduated from junior high school, she tried to commit suicide by jumping off the roof of her apartment building. On the day she graduated from junior high school, she attempted to commit suicide by jumping off the roof of her apartment building. However, just before she hit the ground, the angel Nasse saved her life and told her that her family’s accident was a setup by her aunt and uncle, and gave her angel wings and arrows. After gaining the power of an angel, he is freed from the curse of his relatives and regains the will to live. Nasse tells him that there are twelve other humans who have been given similar powers, and that he has 999 days to choose a candidate to become God.
In the midst of all this, a god candidate appears before the masses in the guise of the hero “Metropoliman”. Metropoliman, who flaunts his existence by helping people, declares that he will become a god by “defeating 12 enemies” = killing all the god candidates except himself, and uses his angelic powers to kill god candidates and purge criminals. Although wary of his dangerous ideology, tomorrow he tries to go about his daily life, but is stabbed with a red arrow by his classmate Saki Hanakago, who had also become a god candidate. Fortunately, his affection for her does not lead to a confrontation, and he forms a cooperative relationship with her in order to protect her, who does not have wings, but later he comes across a scene where three god candidates are lured out by the Metropoliman and killed. The two become even more cautious, but they also form a cooperative relationship with Mukaido Nanato, a god candidate who shares the same ideology, and decide to stand up to Metropoliman.
Kanade Uryu, a.k.a. Metropoliman, who is trying to reduce the number of other god candidates even further, begins to use criminals as decoys and to carry out terrorist-like sabotage. Wounded by this encounter, Kanade decides to seriously eliminate tomorrow’s group, and uses Hajime Soko-tani, one of the god candidates who is fascinated by her, to kidnap Mukaido’s family and lure out tomorrow’s group. After a battle involving Kanade’s subordinates who she had given wings to, Saki who had newly gained wings, and Hajime who had been turned by the Red Arrow, Hajime defends tomorrow and dies, Kanade is shot and killed by Mukaido, and Mukaido’s diseased body reaches its limit, and the three god candidates are eliminated.
