Demons are the bad guys. That image is old, as they nowadays get along well with humans. But, they still sometimes fall prey to their old mischievous ways.
This is the story of three onikko who struggle to improve the image of demons while living in a world shared by both demons and humans. They transfer from Onigashima to a junior high school in Tokyo, and… Sometimes they help people, sometimes they revitalize the town, sometimes they jump into school events, and sometimes… they become idols! To help them they use a key item that has been handed down in their tribe – a special pair of underwear.
