Invasion by the Kikai Machine Empire
At 9:00 p.m. on May 16 (Japan time), the UFO that stayed over the Neon Downtown was transformed.
On May 16, all of a sudden, the UFO that appeared to be a friendly messenger to the earth demanded that the earth should be surrendered. As the government ignored this, the UFO that stayed over the Neon Downtown was transformed and started attacking the earth!
The Kikai Machine Imperial Army dropped countless Kikai Soldiers from the UFO. The city was almost completely destroyed by the Kikai Soldiers. Attacks from the Kikai Machine Empire continued with no mercy, taking hope away from the people. Here comes a mysterious organization, called “Granzella”– the Granzella Self-Defence Forces.
