<Story>

Ryosuke has been stalked by Momoko, the ugliest girl in the village, since they were both five years old. Ryosuke now in his twenties goes in for fleeting romance with the girlfriend of a gangster boss. When boss finds out about their affair, he has Ryosuke's little finger hacked off. Magically, the finger falls into Momoko's hands, and she uses it to make a clone of Ryosuke, so she can finally start a relationship with him (or almost him).
