High school freshman Rihito, who just came back from abroad, started a new life in Japan with his four Busou Shinki, female action figures with weapons. Some guys wait their entire lives to meet the girl of their dreams, but Rihito already lives with four dream girls who are eager to please him. That’s because they’re shinki: 6-inch high, customizable gynoids. Despite their tiny size, these ladies have full-sized intelligence and emotions, and are fully armed. They attempt to maintain and protect Rihito's household from criminals, hijackers, obnoxious neighbors and dangerous enemy shinki. His shinki harem also presents some danger to him as they are strong fighters with powerful weapons but are not fully under control.
