Ginta Toramizu is a 14-year-old junior high schooler who doesn't have a lot going for him: he's near-sighted, doesn't do well in school, he's not good at sports, and to top it off, he's short!
But Ginta is a dreamer and has had the same dream 102 times: it's always in the same fantasy world where he is a hero blessed with all the special abilities he lacks in real life. Then one day a mysterious figure appears at his school and summons him - to the world of his dreams!
Thus, Ginta begins a quest in search for the magical items known as Arms, one of which may have the power to send him home. Joining him on this epic journey are his companion Jack and the valuable living, talking, mustachioed iron-ball weapon known as "Babbo," which everybody wants but, it seems, only Ginta can possess!
