Synopsis: Shuuichi Kagaya is what would be considered a high school student, but sometimes he becomes a monster. He does not know how or why he obtained his skills, just that he prefers no one to know about them. One night he finds a burning building with a girl stuck inside. Deciding saving it turns and takes it safely, but accidentally drops the phone.

The next day, the girl he saved - Claire Aoki - finds him and confronts him about his monster identity. She even reaches the point of pushing him from the school roof to prove her theory after Shuuichi denies her allegations. Desperate to save himself, he transforms himself, and Claire takes a picture to blackmail him to tell her everything he knows about monsters, which, ironically, is not much.

It turns out that Claire has her own secret: she is looking for her sister, who has also become a monster. She asks Shuuichi's help to track her, but they are not the only ones looking for answers.
