- Shinichi is a high school student whose life changes after a parasite takes over his right hand
- He adapts sharing his body with the alien creature, Migi, whose kind controls humans to consume them
- A science fiction story in which the world is being invaded by creatures that take humans as hosts
They arrive in silence and darkness. They descend from the skies. They have a hunger for human flesh. They are everywhere. They are parasites, alien creatures who must invade—and take control of—a human host to survive. And once they have infected their victims, they can assume any deadly form they choose: monsters with giant teeth, winged demons, creatures with blades for hands. But most have chosen to conceal their lethal purpose behind ordinary human faces, so no one knows their secret—except an ordinary high school student. Shinichi is battling for control of his own body against an alien parasite, but can he find a way to warn humanity of the horrors to come?
