A half century has passed since first contact.
Humans have acquired faster than light travel technology and have forged a commonwealth of planets with several alien species.

Robby is a freelance reportage writer in Neo Tokyo who is experiencing a string of bad luck. He ends up failing at his job and loses his contract, his girlfriend leaves him, he almost gets killed in a traffic accident, and debt collectors are hot on his heels. One day, a bag snatcher makes off with Robby’s bag and a young man comes to his aid. The young man, who calls himself Hatchi, catches the criminal and returns Robby’s bag, and as thanks Robby shares some food with him. Unbeknownst to Robby, Hatchi works part-time for the loan shark Robby owns money to, and soon the two cross paths again as Hatchi is sent to collect Robby’s debt. A cat and mouse game begins as Yang’s Finance president Yang and his two subordinates Gras and Allo join in on the hunt for Robby.

Finding himself in a tight spot, Robby escapes to space in a spaceship. Having shaken off Yang and the others, Robby gets the idea to escape to a distant planet in the Milky Way called Isekandar, a planet of legend said to make anyone who goes their happy.
