Reijiro Tekuno (Techno) is a super-rich recluse who lives in a nuclear bunker. He uses his IQ and bank balance to build walls of technology around himself and his fantasy world, where net-surfing is as physical an experience as the real thing. One day (in a scene reminiscent of Kimagure Orange Road) Hitomi's hat is blown away by the wind and lands in Techno's garden. He is immediately smitten with her and insists on calling her Daisy, claiming her as his property, much to her distress. This new twist on geek-meets-girl, intercut with survivalism-by-Microsoft, has a deus ex machina in the bearded form of Grandpa fulfilling a promise to Techno's dead parents, and a fly in the ointment in the butch senior classmate, Ani, who appoints herself to ride shotgun on Techno's schemes. A salutary message about how life won't always comply just because you point money or a computer at it is buried beneath a lighthearted school romance in the spirit of Jubei-chan the Ninja Girl. Strangely endearing despite being a comedy about a stalker, Noriko Nagano's original 1988 manga somehow caught the "virtual" spirit of the times, though it was by no means her most popular-unadapted geek-meets-girl tales from the same creator include Otaku Master and God Save the Sugekoma-kun.
