In anticipation of the coming food crisis, five scientists are working to develop a “dream food,” one that is both meat and vegetable. But, progress in the laboratory, located amidst a derelict shopping district, has hit a dead end. One day, in the wee hours of the night, a pillar of light penetrates the lab. This is the light of a special starry sky that graces the Earth only once every ten thousand years. The scientists are overjoyed at what the light’s tremendous force has produced: the dream food that is Midori-ko. But Midori-ko has no intention of being eaten and instead flies away, escaping the lab. Desperate in their search, the scientists eventually determine that Midori-ko is being taken care of by an agricultural studies student living in the same neighborhood. The scientists try to steal Midori-ko back. But Midori keeps her guard high and Midori-ko out of their grasp. Instead, it’s the apartment residents with their healthy appetites who try to eat Midori-ko at any chance they get! Finally, a ravenous battle over Midori-ko erupts between the scientists, Midori, and the apartment dwellers.
