Summary
"Strange bird aliens inside the bodies of 1970s pop stars. Memories of dead aliens who stunk of onions. Suicidal girls with massive boobs. A friend who idolizes him, yet beats up the biggest bullies and gets the girl. Life is complicated for Kei Kurono. So far, he's had to deal with sleeping next to a sad but excessively cute and endowed girl who asked to be his 'pet'; the fact that he's apparently really a fax copy of himself -- the real version having died in the first volume and falling out of the sky after being dropped by some sort of alien eagle" -- from publisher's web site

Summary
Life is complicated for Kei Kurono, possibly the horniest teen in Tokyo. So far he's had to deal with sleeping next to a sad but excessively cute and endowed girl who asked to be his "pet"; the fact that he's apparently really a fax copy of himself - the real version having died in the first volume; and falling out of the sky after being dropped by some sort of alien eagle
