The protagonist is the 58-year-old lackluster salary-man INUYASHIKI Ichiro. He was a sad, hopeless man who wasn’t trusted by his family, and moreover, was told he only had three months left to live with cancer. One night, he dies after an accident with a mysterious flying alien. Reincarnated in a new body, INUYASHIKI decides to save as many lives as possible to discover the meaning of life.
