Mysterious everlasting humans known as “ Ajin ”first appeared 17 years ago in Africa. Upon their finding, they were branded as a threat to humanity, as they could use their abilities for evil and were incapable of being killed. Since then they have been arrested and placed in detention automatically if an Ajin is identified within society.
Kei Nagai is a high school student, who is barely aware of Ajin and who just has seen him feature in the news occasionally. It is learned to students that these animals are not considered human, but Kei pays no attention in class. Thus, his perilously little knowledge of the issue is utterly meaningless as he survives an event which could take his soul, suggesting the rebirth as an Ajin and the beginning of his tormenting days. However, Kei soon learns that his species may be far closer that he assumes, when he finds hisself alone on a sprint from the whole planet.
