Neku and Shiki wake up in the middle of the city and Naku discovers that they have seven days left to complete their mission. They received a message that a man and a woman in their late teens were caught in an accident, unconscious, so the players of the game Reappear, of the dead, are gathered underground. Neku looks at Shiki, who is still unconscious in the middle of the road. He wonders if he and Shiki are dead. Neku remembers that they failed on their first attempt to complete the mission in this game.
He realizes that this is their second chance and that they can’t afford to ruin or lose it. Neku opens his left hand and finds two badges, wondering why he died. Shiki wakes up and calls Neku, who realizes he doesn’t remember why he died. She told Neku that her amnesia might have something to do with her registration fee. Neku was confused and wondered what Shiki was telling him. Shiki explains that when Neku entered the Reaping Game, they take what is most important to him, and there are no exceptions.

Shiki wonders what took so long since it took 20 minutes when they entered the Reapers game. She asks Neku if he remembers when Rhyme said she didn’t know about dreams. Neku answered yes and said it was because Skater-Brain hit me. Shiki comments that it’s because it was considered his entry fee. Neku asks if it’s like he doesn’t remember anything. Shiki said she hates it and doesn’t understand why they took her appearance. But now she knows what happened.
She reveals that when she saw that she looked like Eri here, she was surprised but happy. But she always wants to change and she would like to become Eri, cute and capable. She wonders why she couldn’t be like Eri since she realizes that she is still herself inside her. Shiki also stated that she didn’t want to accept what she couldn’t do, and she became jealous of Eri and played the victim. Shiki reveals that she was protecting herself, but in the end, she cares about herself the most.
She said that’s why they took her looks as her entrance fee, but she’s fine and understands herself. Neku comments that he understands, and she tells him that if they survive seven days, they will come back to life and recoup their entrance fees. Neku realizes that this is when he will know why he died and he will regain his memories. He fears knowing nothing about himself as a person. But he just knows the other version of himself playing the Reapers game.
Shiki reveals that they only have two days left to complete seven days. She wonders why she can’t see Beat and Rhyme around. Neku wonders what he will do if he survives. Meanwhile, Yodai and his team talk about the remaining players. Yodai reveals that there are only four players left: Beat, Rhyme, Shiki and Neku. He comments that he will break them and cook them before sunset tomorrow. If he fails, they will both get their lives back and get their entrance fees back. Boss Megumi comments that he relies on Yodai.
Yodai swears he won’t fail his boss no matter what. Megumi reveals that when this game ends, Yodai is officially on, but he skips his words. Yodai realizes what Megumi meant, and he comments that he’s grateful and delighted. Meanwhile, Shiki and Neku search for Beat and Rhyme. Rhyme yells that they’re here, and Beat tells him not to yell because it’s embarrassing. They are given a mission with no time limit and are told to achieve the tower records.
They later reached the tower record, and Rhyme saves Beat from being swallowed by a shark that lives in both land and water. Rhyme ends up being swallowed, and the trio fight with the shark, but they lose Rhyme. In the evening, they crush Yodai and win the battle. They met Megumi, who told them about the new rule. He told them that he had taken the second registration fee and that they would play the Reapers Game again. Neku agrees since Shiki was about to disappear.
