Along the way they rescue four other survivors with Nao and Sachi gaining superhuman abilities allowing them to defend themselves from the monsters which prey on the surviving humans in the disaster zone.
Eventually an assault by the monsters on one of the evacuation zones provides the six survivors with an unexpected route of escape but Yuuri has been separated from the others. The five remaining members attempt to seek him out but unexpectedly discover a modern metropolis over the hills surrounding their valley town untouched by the disaster...
