Fifteen-year-old Aoi discovers that his mother is not a model working abroad at all. He discovers this when she is attacked in the cemetery by members of the space patrol, where she reveals that her adult body harbors Mito, a childlike female space pirate. Mito is his real mother, but, because she is an alien, she does not appear old enough to be. She reveals that Aoi is actually the heir to the throne of the Great Kingdom of the Milky Way, and they are chased by Lanban, the corrupt leader of the space patrol, who wants an artifact that can make him king of the galaxy instead. A sci-fi take on the stories of Mitsukuni Tokugawa (see Manga Mito Komon), with a space pirate straight out of Tenchi Muyo!, this series only got more bizarre for its second season. After episode 13, Aoi suddenly transforms into a girl. The newly female Aoi becomes Queen of the Milky Way but also continues to attend Japanese high school in disguise. The former Queen, Hikari, returns as a ghost and demands her throne back, setting the stage for more space piracy (in the name of the established order) and motherly interference from Mito (who seems to have been passed over in the succession). When released on DVD, the series also included a bonus short, Mito Wars, an early experiment in full digital animation.
