Re:Creators is a masterpiece where the heroes and villains from popular manga and other fictional characters come to life mysteriously. Learning that the humans in this world created their worlds, they split into two factions.

One faction that despises the authors for making them and their true world (the world they came from) suffer, just so they can make their manga popular. Their goal is to force the authors to “write” a better world. In contrast, the other faction, that has come to forgive their authors, decides to work with them to get them back to the world they came from and prevent the other faction from destroying this world.
