The premise revolves around an alien invasion of Tokyo being repelled by a mysterious giant being which is almost a monster in itself. The attack and giant creature are witnessed by many of those at a highschool. Shortly after, highschool student Murata Hajime witnesses fellow classmates using psychic abilities and is drawn into the mysteries of the apparent psychic powers and the alien attack.

This work shows examples of:

  • Town with a Dark Secret: The older residents know about the power of Shingu and have kept it a secret from the rest of the humans and other aliens. This explains why, when they saw the White Giant fighting the Aliens, they didn't react with shock and awe. Plus, there's a village where Muryou and Setsuna Subaru grew up that not even other members of the dark secret know about.
  • Translator Microbes: is required that visitors speak the native language.
  • Two Girls to a Team: Naiyuta and Harumi are the only girls in the main student cast.
  • Two-Teacher School: Yamamoto-sensei and Isozaki-sensei are the only two prominent teachers we see.
  • Tsundere: Nayuta and Kyouichi.
