One day, a bibliophile named Kazuhito Harumi finds himself eating at a cafe when a robber appears with a shotgun. He ends up getting shot in the head as he tries to save the life of a girl sitting in a nearby seat. As his life flashes before his eyes, he remembers the last book in the series by his favorite author that he wants to read, and this passion is so strong that his spirit ends up getting sucked into the body of a dachshund.

Soon after that, the dog is bought by a woman named Kirihime Natsuno, who claims she can hear his thoughts. Kazuhito soon discovers that Kirihime is the real name of his favorite author, and that she seems to enjoy abusing him with a pair of super-strong scissors for some reason.
