Our heroine is Fuuko, a shoujo manga-loving girl whose “Uluck” power means she can never find the romance of her dreams. But there’s one person who doesn’t care about her bad luck: “Andy,” whose own power means he can never die. As he searches for a way to end his immortality, the duo are drawn into an organization of negators with similar power. From there it gets… big. How large? Anime fans will find out next year.
