My Home Hero is a story about a middle-aged salaryman named Tetsuo Tosu who was just living an ordinary life. However, he discovered that his daughter, Reika, is being physically abused by her boyfriend, Nobuto Matori. Tetsuo then investigated Matori, and managed to find out Matori’s plan to extort money from Reika’s grandparents. Even worse, Matori also turned out to be a member of a crime syndicate and has murdered his past girlfriends.
Tetsuo became very angry and fearful for his daughter’s life, so he ends up killing Matori. Tetsuo’s wife, Kasen, helped him dispose Matori’s body. But they must face the crime syndicate, because they started questioning Matori’s disappearance. At the same time, they do not want to involve Reika with the whole situation.
