Jin's a happy, irresponsible high school kid who lives with his chiropractor dad and reclusive sister. He's got a great group of friends, including the very attractive Fusano, who takes her own fighting skills way more seriously than Jin does his. Jin, it seems, just loves to have fun. But that changes when some tough guys challenge him on one of the days when he isn't powered up.
Turns out they were hired by his estranged brother Soichiro, the black sheep of the family, who is after something that Jin possesses. And when Soichiro later attacks Fusano, the war between brothers is on.
Story and art by Shouko Fukaki.
