■ Story

This is a story about mankind’s counterattack to take back Earth from alien invaders.

In the year 2118, mysterious alien invaders called “Dracters” suddenly invaded the planet. Within a matter of days, they gained total control of Earth.

Earth was gouged out into the shape of a donut, and the planet became an alien nest. The humans that evacuated to the “Shelter,” a high-defense residential facility, planned their counterattack.

It was their last hope. The power to oppose the overwhelmingly huge arsenal of the alien invaders.

…its name was Musashi. A Megaton-class giant robot.
