Plot[edit]

Andô is a high-school student who possesses the ability to make anyone within a 30-step radius to say whatever he thinks. Inukaï is the young chief of the Grass Hopper, a self-defense force who claims to maintain Nekota town's peace. When Andô realises Inukai is using inhumane methods to control the population, he decides to stop Inukai with his ability. However, Ando isn't the only enemy Inukai has, and vice versa.
