The plot of Dandadan revolves around two high school students Momo Ayase, who believes in ghosts but not aliens, and Ken Takakura, or “Okarun,” who believes in aliens but not ghosts.

To settle their differing beliefs, they go on a wager: Momo explores locations linked to aliens, while Okarun investigates sites associated with ghosts.

Their separate journeys lead them to unexpected discoveries, revealing the existence of both aliens and ghosts, and challenging their preconceived notions in an amusing twist of fate.
