Koban Kato is a high school student with no friends, family, or social presence. However, he does have the ability to “teleport” by suddenly vanishing whenever he’s not being noticed by people around him. In addition to this skill being inherently insulting to Koban, it’s also relatively useless because it strips him of all his clothes.
One day, Koban uses his ability after being kicked out of his house and meets a woman named Sheena who also has no place to live. Sheena is quite impressed with Koban’s teleporting, and quickly devises a plan to put it to good use. Soon, their antics cause the town to start believing there’s a kappa on the loose.
