Gokudo is a notorious adventurer who is willing to resort to any bad deed to fulfill his agenda. Bad deeds such as violence, abuse the needs of people, sell out his friends, run away from any dangers, or ditch others in return for helping him. After stealing a pouch from a fortuneteller, Gokudo finds a rock from which emerges a magical Genie named Djinn who grants his summoner three wishes. While people would benefit from having three wishes, in his case it leads him to a lot of trouble, and it doesn't take long before he tries to escape from Djinn, and every other person he meets.
