UEHARA Akito had dreamed of becoming an entomologist, but when that dream fell through he returned to his home of Yonase, an island at the southern-most tip of Japan. It was then that a mysterious being from outer space arrived, and became a parasite on the UEHARA’s penis. Now, the fate of humanity rests upon his libido and sexual organ. The author, a cultural anthropologist, tenaciously describes the details of ora and fauna ecology.
