Shintaro Kisiragi is an 18-year old hiki-NEET who has shut himself in his room for 2 years, engrossing himself with his computer and the internet.
His life has been quite normal from what you’d normally expect from a NEET until the day he met a cyber girl named Ene, who suddenly appeared in his computer when a mysterious person sent him an anonymous email a year ago.
Shintaro accidentally spills soda all over his computer when Ene was messing around with Shintaro’s computer.
Shintaro is now forced to go outside in the real world to buy a new one before the Obon festival starts where none of the stores will be open.
On his way to the department store, a renegade group of criminals breaks into the store and holds everyone inside for ransom.
Just when he thinks nothing else could go any worse than this, a vigilante group of teenagers calling themselves the “Mekakushi Dan” otherwise known as the Blindfold Gang, stops the robbers with their mysterious eye powers.
What’s more, Shintaro is forced into joining their group.
