An introverted boy, a strange "alien" with a magical water pistol, a fishing prodigy and an Indian with a duck all cross paths at a seaside town.


After moving with his grandmother to the seaside town of Enoshima, an introverted boy named Yuki tries to get through without doing anything too embarrassing. However, his plans are quickly thrown out when he encounters a self-described alien in the form of a boy named Haru, who strings him along by squirting him with a magical water pistol. The two of them soon start learning how to fish from the "Prince" of fishing, a classmate named Natsuki, in order to help Haru and his sister catch a fish that might be key to the fate of the Earth. Throw in a strange alien-monitoring Indian from a duck-themed organization and Yuki's life will never be the same.
