One day a little girl with bewildering supernatural powers dropped right into the middle of an ambitious young yakuza member’s life. His name was Yoshifumi Nitta, and hers was Hina. Thus began their days together (forcibly, thanks to Hina’s powers).
Now a year has passed, Nitta has taken over the title of lieutenant in his syndicate, and he seems to be doing well enough in his role as Hina’s pretend father. Yet the duo’s time together is rarely peaceful—every day seems to hold a new calamity in store.
All the while, middle schooler Hitomi Mishima keeps climbing her way to the top, and the soul-crushing story of Mao, the third psychokinetic girl, continues to unfold.
