Naota Nandaba, a fifth grader who lives in the suburban city of Mabase, is run over by a mysterious woman on a Vespa. Although Naota believes that there is “nothing amazing in life,” impossible things begin happening from that day on. Naota grows a horn on his head, and then a robot comes out of it.
Haruko, the culprit behind all of this, appears and works as a maid at Naota’s house.
What in the world is she…?
