In the near future, mysterious monsters known as the "Enemies of Humanity" begin to appear, and with it so do children with supernatural powers called the "Talented". To prepare them for the upcoming battle against these Enemies, all the Talented are sent to a school located on a deserted island, where they have all their daily needs provided for until they graduate and communication with the outside world is forbidden. One day, a new student named Nana Hiiragi arrives at the school. Her friendly and cheerful personality lets her quickly make friends with the class. In reality, however, Nana is a Talentless government assassin who has been dispatched to kill the Talented, whom the government deems to be the true Enemies of Humanity.
- Nana Hiiragi (柊 ナナ, Hiiragi Nana)
- Voiced by: Rumi Okubo (Japanese); Michelle Marie (English)

|Talentless student Nanao Nakajima deals with bullies in his class when two new students arrive: a terse boy named Kyōya Onodera, and an upbeat girl named Nana Hiiragi with the talent of reading minds. Nana tries to become friendly with Nanao, and even pushes him to run for Class President. Nana continues following Nanao around campus sharing information about her mind-reading talent. The next day, Moguo Iijima and Seiya Kori spar over the Class President position. Seiya wins, but Moguo throws a giant fireball in anger. Nanao leaps into action to save Nana from the fireball, and reveals his talent: the power to cancel other talents. Afterwards, having won Class President himself, Nana offers to let him test his power on her by holding her hand. As he does, Nana throws him off the cliff. While he hangs by a rope, Nana reveals to Nanao that she is actually Talentless, and that she is killing him before he leads the other Talented to become the true Enemies of Humanity. As Nanao loses his grip and falls away, Nana receives a text message claiming she has saved one million people from dying from a future enemy commander.|

The government tried to counter this threat with units of Talented individuals under their military's command, but those Talented soon turned on their masters as well. Talentless humans eventually managed to restore order, but at a heavy cost. In the present, the class notices Nanao's disappearance while Seiya freezes an entire lake. While Nana tries to gain more information on Seiya's talent, she finds another classmate, Yōhei Shibusawa, breaking up a fight with Moguo using a time travel talent. At lunch, she finds out more about Yōhei's talent: that he can only travel backwards in time to a certain extent. Suddenly, the two are interrupted by a suspicious Kyōya, as Nana tries to avoid implicating herself. Later, Nana gets Yōhei to demonstrate the limits of his talent, and her past self spots Yōhei before she carries out her assassination of Nanao. Late at night, Nana lures Yōhei to a spot where she claimed to see Nanao being eaten by an Enemy of Humanity. As he travels back about 24 hours in time, Yōhei ends up trapped in the river that Seiya froze previously that morning.|
