Un:Birthday Song Story Summary~

Kanno Hotori was a normal girl leading a normal life. One day, out
of the blue, two unfamiliar guys appear before her. The strangely-dressed guys informed her:

"You only have one month left to live
."

Calling themselves "Reapers", they had come to inform Hotori that the end of her life was drawing near
. Having to obey the fate that came upon her, she had to give the Reapers her soul. However, just before she did so, Hotori had a wish she wanted granted dearly.

That wish was to tell her one-sided crush that she loves him.

How will Hotori live out her last days?
And what are the actions the Reapers will take?

This is a sad love story spun by the elite Reapers.
