Intergalactic Spies. Extraterrestrials. Double Lives.
The world, as Hajime Murata knew it, is about to be turned upside down. First, a alien ship appears over Tokyo. Then a mysterious, new student – wearing an ancient school uniform – transfers to his school. The student’s name is Muryou, and with his arrival, everything begins to change.
Classmates suddenly begin to display psychic powers. A giant white guardian faces off with alien creatures in the skies over their town. And men with threatening weapons lurk in the shadows of the school’s campus.
With all these strange events taking place around him, Hajime is determined to figure out the truth about the world he thought he already knew. His story is a tale of aliens and humans, starships and spies, and friends who are often more than they appear to be. Join Hajime as he discovers the mysteries of SHINGU!
