Guilty Crown

Synopsis: On December 24, 2029 - the day known as the "lost Christmas" - the apocalypse virus spread through Japan, bringing death to its citizens and plunging the country into total chaos. In an effort to establish order, the United Nations send GHQ to help in the crisis, containing the outbreak while removing all political autonomy in the process. A decade later, the country still lives under its control, unable to break free from its draconian rule.

Frustrated with the state of the nation, a resistance group called The Funeral Parlour intends to free Japan from GHQ. Led by charismatic Gai Tsutsugami, the group plans to steal a bottle containing the "emptiness genome" to promote their goals. The bottle falls into the hands of the internet vocalist Inori Yuzuriha, who ends up being hunted by the GHQ anti-bodies forces. Having wherever I don't go, she is looking for refuge in a warehouse where she meets Shuu Ouma - a socially clumsy high school student who is a big fan of her music.

Shuu is dragged to the conflict at the moment he rescues Inori, and the empty genome breaks in hand, granting him the "power of kings". While learning to control his great skill, Shuu must now fight to free Japan from his cruel oppressors.
