A junior high loser enters the vivid world of his dreams where, at last, he is a hero

Ginta Toramizu is a 14-year-old kid in junior high school who doesn't have a lot going for him: he's near-sighted, doesn't do well in school, he's not good at sports, and to top it off-he's short But Ginta is a dreamer and has had the same dream 102 times: it's always in the same fantasy world where he is a hero blessed with all the special abilities he lacks in real life.

Then one day a supernatural figure appears at his school and summons him-to the world of his dreams In this strange universe filled with magic and wonder, he is strong, tough, agile-and he can see without his glasses Thus, Ginta begins a quest in search for the magical items known as Arms, one of which may have the power to send him home. Joining him on this epic journey are his companion Jack and the valuable living, talking, mustachioed iron-ball weapon known as "Babbo," which everybody wants but, it seems, only Ginta can possess.
