    Synopsis:
    In 1945, at the end of World War II, alien invaders filled the skies above the earth and mankind was forced to confront an unprecedented threat. For the first time in human history, people of all creeds and cultures came together under one banner.

    Fifty years later, countless lives have been lost and the Japanese military has resorted to recruiting those aged between 16 and 21 by way of an enforced student draft to fight the technologically advanced war against the alien invaders using Humanoid Walking Tanks. Among the new generation of soldiers are the members of Unit 5121, a small group of young men and women straight out of high school who are having to battle not only the aliens but also the everyday problems of adolescence, including their feelings towards each other. Into this tightly woven assortment of characters comes a mysterious girl named Mai Shibamura, whose presence will affect all those who come to know her.
