Viz Media released the first three chapters of the title as part of its “Jump Start” program, with chapters hitting from September through October 2014. They describe the series as:

“Mumbling” Chuta Kokonose doesn’t have many friends. In fact, the only conversations he has anymore are with voices inside his head. Little does he know that this voice doesn’t mean he’s crazy. It just means he has an alien living inside his body!
