Five ancient sheet of papyrus have recently been found deep in the Balinese jungle. Archaeologists from the local University concluded that they are the important parts of Queen Leyak’s Necronomicon, an ancient tome of dark magic filled with horrors so terrifying, they are too dangerous to even name.
The United Nations assembles experts from around the world to investigate, and search for more pages from the Necronomicon. One of them is Professor Kobayashi, a leading historian from Kyoto University. Together with his son Tetsuo, and daughter Ai, they moved to Bali.
Tetsuo didn’t know the reason behind the move, but quickly took to his new home, the International School of Bali. There, he met a local girl named Ida Ayu, who shared his passion for history. Together they formed a club, the Culture Research Club (CRC).
Shortly afterwards, Tetsuo stumbled upon his father’s private research notes. He quickly realized what they contained, and the next day presented the notes to the Culture Research Club. Instead of being daunted by the danger, the club agreed to hunt for the missing pages of the Queen Leyak’s Necronomicon, and that’s where the calamity began.
