Goro Mutsumi is a young man that never seems to catch a break; he has a hard time keeping a job, has horrible luck, and continuously finds himself in bad circumstances.  However, things change one day when he comes home - having been fired yet again - and finds three young girls sitting in his apartment. They're the reincarnated angels of his deceased pets, and they're here to turn his luck around given how well he treated them in their past lives. While the idea sounds like a godsend, things don't go quite according to plan; the angels tend to cause more harm than good, and twelve altogether end up joining Goro's cramped household! In addition to learning how to co-exist with his newly acquired roommates, Goro must also defend them and himself against four sacred beasts who are after him for mysterious reasons. One thing's for certain: Goro's life will never be the same!

He plays the harmonica (riff I made "I tell ya, bein' a folk singer today is like bein' a dinosaur with somethin' to say yea!") So what is... read more
