Plot

Spoilers ahead


"20世紀から宇宙人の存在は広く人々の興味対象でしたが、ついに地球に外宇宙生物が現れました。アキハバラ電気街に現れた宇宙人は大量の電化製品を強奪した模様でございます。"
"Humans were interested in the existence of aliens since the 20th century. However, these extra-terrestrials have now appeared on Earth. The alien sighted in Akihabara’s electric streets has been robbing a large number of electric appliances." - Newscaster in the TV -

One day at Rairai Ken ramen restaurant at Nerima Hikarigaoka island, a TV showed breaking news about an extraterrestrial attacking Akihabara island. Behind the closed door of the fridge in the kitchen, lies the headquarters of an anti-alien organization known as "Planetokio Defence Force". The leader, Dr. Hokin and his pupil Iken, together are making a supreme gun (To fight against aliens invading Planetokio) called “Naru Naru MK1”(ナルナル1号). In order to make sure it works, Hokin sadistically tested on poor Iken both standard and energized punches. As Hokin explains the usage for the gun, alarm calls and Dr. Hokin assigns Iken to fight the alien in Akihabara island. As Iken was about to leave the restaurant, the owner Lailai order Iken to deliver the “Brainiac Ramen” (頭脳ラーメン)to the bald man of Rouden electronics in Akihabara island. As Iken arrives at the parking lot and walks towards the exit, a thief bumps into him, steals the ramen, and leaves. Iken managed to capture the thief, only to find it was too late as he ate all of the ramen, and so to make up for it he gave Iken a one hundred yen coin. Iken then used the coin and the trashed robot he found in the landfill along the way to defeat Biribiri and brought it back to the lab. As Dr. Hokin investigates the alien's body, he finds a molecule that turns out to be collect virus, the source of all troubles. Dr. Hokin then awards Iken his invented brain so Iken can create his own robot. As he installs the brain to the body, he realizes it needs a headshell to cover the brain and so he called Naomi of Uomasa fishmongers for opinions, and then she suggests Giddy Park of Shibuya Island and took him there. As Iken and Naomi are at the store, a different alien known as Fuwafuwa destroys the store and kidnaps her. Iken then seeks the Pigeon gang who gave him the strength to defeat Fuwafuwa and rescue Naomi. Iken then finally brings the robot to life, and Naomi names the new robot Boro. Meanwhile at Naomi's house, her dad Dr. Campbell invites Iken and Naomi to his laboratory to witness his masterpiece, GyororinRX035beta when suddenly a different alien, known as Nurunuru barges in and steals Gyororin. Iken chases Nururu at Asakusa Island and defeats him, freeing Gyororin and allowing Naomi to accept him on a date at the fireworks festival. Back at Iken's apartment, Iken's robot Boro becomes sentient and he wishes to be wireless.
