A series of gruesome murders dubbed "New Generation Madness" once induced mass hysteria in Shibuya. At its peak during a frenzied riot, a sudden earthquake reduced the district into nothing but rubble, while leaving surrounding wards strangely intact.

Six years later, in a newly rebuilt Shibuya, mysterious deaths begin to crop up again. It is not long before third-year student Takuru Miyashiro realizes a connection: the dates of the recent murders match those of the New Generation Madness incidents.

Chaos;Child is the sequel to the anime to Chaos;Head that aired 8 years ago which is more or less the time gap between the two shows in series. after the events of chaos;Head, where at the end of that show a major earthquake had struck the town, by the time Chaos;child starts most of the city has already been rebuilt.
