This follow-up to Shimako Sato's cult favorite Eko Eko Azaraku is in fact a prequel. An undercover witch-cum-high school student in the first installment, Misa Kuroi (played again by Kimika Yoshino) is a fresh-faced normal teenager. One night, while returning to a party after a beer run, she discovers all of her friends hacked into a bloody pulp by a murderous creature dressed in white. His intended victim was Misa, however, and soon he is hot on her trail. Just as this otherworld assailant is about to get the schoolgirl in his bloody clutches, she is saved by a shadowy character in a black trenchcoat (Wataru Shihodo). Though she does not initially trust her savior, who seems just as otherworldly and weird as her would-be murderer, Misa warms up to him a bit after he saves her a second time (from a gun-toting zombie) prompting him to divulge some dark secrets. Saiga, as the man in black calls himself, is the sole survivor of a family of magicians from the 1880s. Not long before the murders, a team of archaeologists unearthed their burial grounds, accidentally freeing the spirit of an evil witch, who is intent on possessing the body of Misa to gain enormous occult powers. Only Misa, with her trusty magical pendant, can save herself and stop the witch.
