Takemoto Takeru, an ordinary high school student, encounters a strange light during a bike delivery for his part time job.

When he stops and searches the surroundings, he notices a cute girl named Hikari climbing out of a sparkling cocoon in the forest.

This is the beginning of adventurous and exciting days for Takeru, the mysterious girls, Hikari and Akari, his childhood friend Nishino, Mari, and his classmates.
