The storyline of the OVA focuses on Naota Nandaba, a 12-year-old boy, whose life has recently been quite ordinary and boring, taking into account that he lives with his widowed father and grandfather in the usual working class family, attends basic school and has hobbies appropriate to any boy of his age. But one day his life has radically changed. A strange girl runs over Naota with her yellow scooter, and after giving him CPR, beats him on the head with an electric guitar. Furthermore, shortly afterwards, Naota discovers the girl working as a maid in his home hired by his father. As subsequently turned out, the stranger girl is actually an alien, named Haruko Haruhara, and she is an investigator for the Galactic Space Police Brotherhood, who uses Naota in order to find the Pirate King, Atomsk.
