In the scorching desert of Nevada, barren as it is, lies a city seemingly out of place called Death City, also known as the Oasis of the Desert. Although its exterior appears dark and gloomy, it is actually a rather lively city rich in atmosphere and culture. One of Death City's pride and joy, is the academy that raises the youth from all around the world to train them to hold their own against the Kishin Eggs, monsters who have strayed from the path of humanity. Death Weapon Meister Academy, famous for not only raising Weapons and Meisters, but also for protecting the world from evil and preserving peace. Although the people of the DWMA uphold their duty of protecting the world, there lies an even bigger threat that no other has ever begun to imagine. The Horsemen of the Apocalypse, generally kept secret from the students, bent on wreaking havoc upon the world as we know it. Only an elite few know of their existence, but that would change in a matter of minutes should they decide to follow through with their plans. Although Lord Death is one of these Four Horsemen, he wants nothing more than to rid the world of evil. But that would not be possible without the support of his very own students. Will these students remain oblivious to such threats, or will they join Death as they risk their lives protecting the world's peace?
