Plot Summary: Ikuhara Takeya is a normal student attending a high school where his friends are obsessed over the alien creatures, DearS. The DearS are used as slaves and consider themselves nothing more. One day when Takeya is walking, he finds a DearS named Ren on the street. When Ren falls into the middle of the road, with a truck behind, Takeya pushes Ren to the sidewalk. From then on, Ren swore to become Takeya's slave, and the relationship gift soon grows between them.
