This story is set in a near-future Japan, where the breeding of genetically-modified animals for a variety of uses has become big business. The story looks at the friendship which develops between one such creature, a chimeric part-human named Miyatsu, and the human Fujimoto Aiko.

Aiko met and interacted with Miyatsu while he was growing within an artificial gestation unit. Circumstances part them, until they meet up many years later, both as adults, and the story follows their developing relationship and growing affection for each other.
