About Corpse Party: Blood Drive

The disturbing events that the survivors of Kisaragi Academy’s class 2-9 encountered are theirs alone to live with after the memories of those lost in the halls of Heavenly Host were wiped from the face of the Earth. Only the power contained within the pages of the Book of Shadows could reverse this miserable fate. However, Ayumi Shinozaki’s misguided attempts to employ its power during the events of Corpse Party: Book of Shadows claimed yet another victim, and the book was forever lost in the chaos. Obsessed with figuring out a way to bring her friends back, Ayumi returns to Heavenly Host after a tip leads her to believe the Book of Shadows still resides within. Will Ayumi be successful in her desperate mission to redeem her past mistakes, or will she join the ranks of lost souls claimed by the curse of Heavenly Host?
