In between reality and fantasy lies a world known only as the 'Space World'. From this world, a demon prince with a large triangle shaped head named Taizo Momote (百手 太臓, Momote Taizō) arrives at Doki Doki Private High School. His true identity is Baal Zebul and his objective is to marry all the women in the country and create a 'Harem Land'. However, with his looks and personality, there’s no way he could possibly find a girlfriend. The unrelenting Taizo recruits his close friends, Yu and the delinquent Komi Akutsu to his cause, and continues the search for suitable women.
