Gaining immense popularity in Japan, this manga promises an engaging blend of whimsy and profound insight into the human psyche. Meet Happian, an extraterrestrial with octopus-like features, whose sole mission on Earth is to disseminate joy. However, Earthlings’ inherent skepticism towards the unfamiliar challenges his quest.
A close shave with confinement leads him to Shizuka Kuze, a young girl grappling with her own set of troubles: an absent single mother and relentless school bullies. Shizuka affectionately christens him “Takopi.” Despite his innate mission to radiate happiness, Takopi finds uplifting Shizuka a challenge more intricate than he had ever encountered.
