The story is set in a fictional world where 15 years earlier, people stopped giving birth, and even with their bodies damaged beyond repair, the dead can not find rest, unless they are buried by mysterious individuals known as "gravekeepers". According to legends, this happened because by that time, God abandoned the world. Ai Astin, a young gravekeeper has her life changed forever when an immortal gunslinger called Hampnie Hambart kills everyone in her village except for her. Having no place left to live, Ai ends up relying on the same man who killed everyone arround her as she travels the world to perform her duties as a gravekeeper and learn more about the reasons why the world had reached such state.
Ai is the main character and a 12-year-old gravekeeper, taking on the job after her mother passed away. She is quite naive, but cares a lot about others. According to her mother, her father was called Hampnie Hambart, who somehow is the same alias used by her traveling companion, although he claims he never had a daughter, but she decides to follow him on his journey nonetheless. As the child of a gravekeeper and a human, Ai is arguably the last child born in the world, where ordinary children stopped being conceived three years before her birth. This and the fact that she has emotions is what make her different from the other gravekeepers.
A strange albino man who suddenly appears in town one day. Upon arrival, he proceeds to "kill" everyone in the town, or at least immobilize them. Hampnie's goal in traveling is to find a woman named Hana. He became immortal 15 years ago when God abandoned the world, and can regenerate after being injured. Although he has a cold personality, he is kind on the inside, and only uses his gun on self-defense, or to destroy the bodies of those who already died, as according to him, the dead has no place among the living.
