Yuki Tachibana, a withdrawn first grader, is convinced that the fourth floor of his school is home to supernatural creatures that few kids (and no adults) can see and he's worried about a recent influx of new, less friendly creatures and about his ability to perceive the true shape of things waning as he gets older.

The readers are shown his delusions and there are many panels which focus on the ambiance, which adds to the surrealist tone.

There are only a few characters, but they're pretty well fleshed-out, and you can understand the way they think very well by the end.

The artstyle is a little rough, but surprisingly detailed. It really matches up well with the main character's doodles of what he sees.
