It seems like the gorgeous street-fighting champion Nozomi is invincible... until a beautiful stranger known only as Coyote shows up and snatches away his crown. Nozomi's penalty? He must become the slave of a "peeping room" website where any lazy perv can spy on his life 24/7! At first, Nozomi's only goal is to raise the ransom needed to buy back his freedom. But a mysterious plot involving secret surveillance, the moon, and ancient computers soon comes to light. Does Nozomi hold the key to solving an interplanetary crisis?
Story and art by Makoto Tateno.
