The show focuses on two major characters, in two different plot arcs, who find themselves caught up in a series of mysteries involving so-called "material fairies" and "material evils." While they are dealing with these paranormal entities, life continues around them as their friends deal with the ups and downs of life.

Plot

The plot centers around two major arcs in the storyline, the first centering around Ayumu Aizawa, who is visiting his father in the small town of Tana during the summer; and the second centers around Kisa Tanigawa in Yokohama, a year and a half since the events of the first arc.


Summer Arc

The first twelve episodes of the series focus on the day-to-day life of Ayumu Aizawa as he visits his father in the town where he is the local veterinarian. Ayumu is unsure of why he is in the town, but a chance meeting with a girl named Miku sends him searching for a long-lost friend of his, Wakkun. Upon finding Wakkun, he discovers that the boy has not aged since he and Ayumu played as children. Wakkun is also wearing clothes very similar to the raincoat and galoshes that Ayumu wore habitually as a child. Wakkun introduces Ayumu to his two friends, Dosshiru and Shisshin, mysterious flying objects that alternate between a mechanical form and a sphere of yellow light. Unable to remember an event from his childhood, Ayumu, with the help of several other people from Tana, tries to understand what happened when he was a child, and the mysterious connection between him, Wakkun, Dosshiru, and Shisshin.


Winter Arc

One and a half years later, a depressed Kisa Tanigawa is routinely skipping class. One evening, while wandering aimlessly around the city, she stumbles upon another mysterious mechanical object. Naming it "Bun-chan" after the sound it makes, she takes it home and treats it as a pet. However, Akira Sukawara, a reporter trying to prove the existence of "material fairies," or the mysterious objects that appeared at the Cat Dance in Tana a year and half ago, discovers that Kisa has found another object similar to material fairies and, upon meeting her, terms Bun-chan not a material fairy, but a "material evil," since its outward apperaance does not resemble those of the material fairies spotted in Tana. The material fairies and the material evils, however, seem to be at war with each other.
