Wonder Egg Priority follows a junior high school student named Ai Ohto, who temporarily stopped going to school following the tragic death of her close friend Koito Nagase via suicide. It is only when Ai visits an empty park one night that she hears a mysterious voice guide her into acquiring her first Wonder Egg that her strange adventures begin. From that moment onward, Ai finds herself in a nightmarish dream world where Wonder Eggs hatch to reveal girls who have died by suicide whom she must protect from both the Seeno Evil monsters and the Wonder Killer. Ai learns that if she saves enough of these girls, there is a chance she can bring her friend back to life. It is in following through with this task that Ai meets Neiru, Rika and Momoe, who also have girls in their lives who committed suicide.
