In the period known as "pre-war," when Japan was taking its first steps into conflict... In the snowy mountains of the west, there is a settlement called Hitogata. In this place, with its strange custom of worshipping a clay doll called Hinna-sama, a woman is killed on the night of a festival.
The villagers unanimously refer to this incident as "Hinna-sama's Curse." They say that she was cursed for worshipping Hinna-sama despite being unworthy.
It's been almost two years since Kuchiki Touko was abducted from her hospital room. Tokisaka Reiji's sister, Yukari, saves a man attempting to commit suicide. The man is a victim of "Hinna-sama's Curse," which has resurfaced in the present...
Tokisaka Reiji acts to sever the delusions that span the war. All the while carrying his own delusions about Touko in his heart... At the same time, a religious group that was thought to have disbanded six years ago begins to move again.
What could it be scheming?
Even if Heaven brings down a curse, it is human hands that enact it.
An unemployed man, one of the game’s protagonists.
When he attempted suicide in Inokashira Park, he was found and rescued by Tokisaka Yukari. After he’s discharged from the hospital, he’s hired as a (temporary) assistant at the Tokisaka Detective Agency.
Because he cut his wrist during his suicide attempt, he currently can’t use his left hand very well. Since a blood transfusion from Tokisaka saved his life, Masaki endures the harsh work Tokisaka puts him through -- though not without complaints. In reality, he has nothing else to do, so he’s just going along with it due to his passive nature. He has a mature personality for better or worse, and is the type to create distance between himself and others.
