Overview

All barely out of high school, the group nicknamed RGB, due to their different colored hair, found their friendship coming to an end on 5/10/2020 when the G of the group, Koki, lost his sister Asumi in a fire someone caused at Takaro Elementary. The B of the group, Shuta, who Asumi would tease about wanting to be a hero, ran in and tried to save both her and Kozue, but, despite his best efforts, Asumi died while Kozue lived – because of Asumi’s sacrifice.

Nearly a year later, and being high school graduates, each member of RGB couldn’t be more different. The R, Ran, has become a notable graffiti artist within Tokyo’s 24th and the only thing which ends up reuniting them is their former teacher, Shirakaba, nicknamed just Kaba, on the anniversary of the Takaro school fire.

This isn’t an easy reunion for any of them, yet they keep finding themselves drawn together despite all the bad memories which make them want to pull apart. But what may finally coerce them together is a strange phone call from Asumi, or rather someone pretending to be her, and with that phone call comes a vision. One that, throughout the series, leads to what are known as “Trolley Dilemmas.” These scenarios task RGB with two ways to solve a problem while being gifted with magnificent abilities. But each time, it seems, someone will die unless RGB works together and comes up with a third option.
