Rize relishes nothing more than sinking into the warmth of her bed and drifting into a peaceful slumber, reminiscent of the times she shared with her older brother in their childhood, a time before their lives diverged due to their parent's divorce.
Juggling late shifts at a local supermarket alongside her university studies, she harbors a heartfelt dream of one day reuniting with her long-lost brother, now a grown man. Her unique ability to catch a few winks in the break room catches the eye of Kairi, a co-worker grappling with the relentless grip of insomnia.
There's something about him that echoes the familiarity of her sibling, drawing her towards him. As their connection deepens, an unexpected revelation about Kairi threatens to upend her world, leaving it in disarray.

To the public eye, Rocopon, Earth's sole extraterrestrial resident, appears to have spent the past eight years idly lounging around Tokyo, having crash-landed with no recollection of his extraterrestrial past. Admittedly, he does have a penchant for loafing and indulging in extended video game sessions.
However, in the shadows of secrecy, free from the constraints of Earthly laws, Rocopon has been diligently serving as a government-sanctioned extrajudicial assassin. His mission: is to eliminate the societal scourges that the legal system struggles to address in a timely or effective manner.
After years of efficiently dispatching crime lords and their henchmen, a certain level of comfort settles in. Yet, the equilibrium is disrupted when Rocopon finds himself facing challenges on multiple fronts.
Frustrated by his unorthodox methods, headquarters pairs him with a by-the-book, straight-laced partner. Simultaneously, the criminal underworld, recognizing the need for extraordinary measures, enlists the help of individuals who transcend the boundaries of mere humanity.
