It is the year 2017, and the stakes have gotten even higher in the massively multiplayer online game The World--now The World R:2, a dangerous place overrun by player killers, where lawlessness abounds. The PKK Haseo, known as "The Terror of Death," is a fearsome foe who punishes those who want to slay other players. But things have gotten personal as Haseo tries to track down the killer Tri-Edge, who has threatened the real life of his friend Shino...
Players of "The World", a MMORPG, are being infected with a mysterious virus known as AIDA which causes them to kill people in the game - but puts them in comas in real life too! The G.U., a group of special players known as "Epitaph Users" aim to eradicate The World of Aida by Data Draining the infected and are the only ones who can do so. Haseo is hunting down one such AIDA, Tri-Edge, after finding out he was responsible for putting his friend in a coma. After finally tracking him down he is brutally killed by Tri-Edge, resetting his level back to 1; though his character data is saved by the G.U., keeping him from slipping into a coma in real life. Now, with his stats back to nothing, Haseo must train hard to unlock his Epitaph powers and get his revenge on Tri-Edge.
