Highschool student Kio Kakazu bumps into a strange girl sporting cat-ears who happens to be a self-proclaimed alien and calls herself Elis. Stalked by a group of fanatic orthodox-alien-believers and mysterious government agencies, Elis ends up being captured by Kio's neighbour Manami Kinjo.

Manami Kinjo is Kio's neighbour who goes to the same school. Voiced by Haruka Tomatsu of Kannagi: Crazy Shrine Maidens(Nagi) and To Love-Ru(Lala Satalin Deviluke).

Self-proclaimed alien Elis seems to be rather fond of Kio. Voiced by Kanae Ito of Shugo Chara!(Amu Hinamori) and Toaru Kagaku no Railgun(Ruiko Saten).
