Shinichi is a normal teenage boy who happens to have an alien parasite named Migi inside his right hand. Together, they are hunting other parasite aliens which have secretly invaded the earth. The police, too, have become alerted to the alien menace and are working with a serial killer to identify and exterminate hidden alien parasites. The parasites, however, are not taking these threats lightly and send an especially powerful conglomerate parasite monster named Goto to decimate the police and hunt down Shinichi and Migi, who must somehow escape Goto and the police and deal with his own slowly changing personality in which he seems to be losing his own humanity.
