Parasites that have found a host body will devour uninhabited humans as food.  One of these aliens tries to take control of the main character, Shinichi’s body, but is thwarted due to Shinichi wearing headphones over his ears, which causes the alien to burrow into his arm instead. Since the alien entered Shinichi’s body through his right arm, it doesn’t have control over his brain, and both beings are able to retain their intellect and personality. The alien adopts the name “Migi” (which is the Japanese word for right). The pair reluctantly and gradually form a strong bond with one another, by surviving frequent attacks from other Parasites that realize that Shinichi’s human brain remains intact. Their bond gives them an edge in battle against other Parasites.
