The anime begins with a schoolgirl, Yuri Honjo, being transported to a bizarre world filled with skyscrapers and high-rise buildings interconnected by suspension bridges. Things turn to the worse when Yuri is being hunted down by figures in masks, whom she later finds out to be a hellbent group tormenting and bullying the innocent. She is put in a precarious position to either run away or fight for her life and strive to bring down the sinful organization obsessed with being a god.
High-Rise Invasion: Anime and Manga parallel
