Hiro is a high school student refusing to go to school after a traumatic run-in with the local bullies. But his feeble life is forever changed when, one day, he applies online for a new gadget called "JUNK." Once the mysterious package arrives, he activates the gadget and finds himself encased within a powered armor JUNK suit. Apparently "the clothes DO indeed make the man" as Hiro is granted abilities far beyond anything the muscle-bound jocks at his school could ever dream.
Soon after, he embarks on nightly rampages getting back at the bullies and destroying property until he discovers... there is another with a unit nearly identical to his own. The owner of the other JUNK suit is a woman who's not too keen on Hiro's abuse of his new super-powered threads, and smacks him around real good for it. To complicate matters even further, he accidentally destroys his home and kills his parents! Now, a naive boy must learn to live on his own and choose to use his power for good or evil.
Story and art by Kia Asamiya.
