The story mostly takes place on an Earthlike world, an other-dimensional planet from which the Earth (the "Capricorn" of the title) can occasionally be glimpsed in the sky. The planet's inhabitants, ruled by a decadent king, are almost all intelligent, anthropomorphic animals; one exception is the human-looking Mona, a young and adventurous woman. Mona's scholarly friend, an elderly anthropomorphic mouse, becomes caught up in a conspiracy to replace the monarchy with a military dictatorship. Against this backdrop, two young Japanese suddenly materialise on the planet: the high-school student Taku Shimamura and his sister Tamaki.
