The side story ends in the death of Dr. Kamizono and his associates at the hand of an Adept they had been experimenting on, It is explained that Dr. Kamizono's death was kept in secrecy by Sumeragi. These parts serve as a prologue to the main story of Fleeting Memories.

Part six through twenty are based around the siblings Rei and Miu. Their lives were forever changed by an encounter with an Adept serial killer known as Raptor "The Obliterator of the Innocent," who suddenly kills Rei and Miu's family.
