‘Plunderer’ is set in a post-apocalyptic world where almost every human has a number printed on their body and it’s this number that measures their worth in one way or the other. If this number ever reaches zero, the person is dragged down into the darkness of the Abyss.
Hina is the main character of the series whose mother was dragged down to the Abyss when her number went down to zero. But before she leaves her, she gives her a glass orb with 10,000 in it and also tells her all about the Legendary Ace. With this, Hina sets out to fulfill her mother’s dream of finding the Ace and after hunting him down for five long years, she ends up running into a perverted Knight named Licht and his boss Nana. Nana keeps preaching about the disparity in power in their society where the ones with higher number count are able to control others.
Hina also tells them all about her own number 441 which indicates that she has walked 44,100 kilometers. Later, Hina ends up running into a Seargent who claims to be the Ace, but instead, he steals all of her numbers and only leaves her with just 1. He then reveals it to her that the tale of Ace is more than 300 years old and the so-called Legend has been dead for ages.
This is when Litch shows up and flaunts his own number which is in negatives. Surprised by this, the Seargeant claims that it is not possible to have a number that low unless he is a Ballot Holder. Litch then reveals it to them he is the Legendary Ace and threatens the Seargent that he’ll force him to give Hina her numbers back. Following this event, the Legendary Ace and Hina embark on a journey that’ll not only transform them but will completely change the world they live in.
