Pata-Pi is an electronic brained pet that is customized and grows according to how you raise him, a thing really popular among the girls at school now. Hibari is playing the crane game with Suzume,
when a mysterious old man starts talking to her. The old man tells her that Hibari's prince is waiting for her on the hill near by. She starts running for the hill after hearing this great news. But when she gets there, there is no one to be seen up on the hill. She is very disappointed but then fluffy feathers start to fall around her. Countless number of feathers and a dazzling light surrounds the area and eventually a small ball of light hovers near Hibari. It settles in the palm of her hand and when she opens her hand she sees it is Pata-Pi. Believing it must have been a present for her from the Prince, she names it "Densuke".
  When she takes Pata-Pi to school, the teachers temporally take it away from her. And all sorts of things happen to her, like she thinks she sees someone who looks exactly like the prince.
