Three decades ago, the Earth was assaulted by monsters from an evil planet. Hailing from a planet of Bravery and Love, the BL Baby came to Earth's rescue. Five young people full of passion were chosen to pilot a giant robot and cast away the invaders.
At present, A-Yung, one of the five heroes, is a cynical middle-aged man. He even married one of the attackers from the first invasion; they have a daughter together. Yet when the alarm sounds again to warn of an attack by monsters, he has no choice but to put on a brave face and gather his former comrades alongside the BL Baby.
On the other hand, the government, determined to defeat the invaders without relying on outside help, assembles a group of young people and trains them to repel the invasion. Will the addition of this new blood affect the mission of saving the Earth? Can the Earth come out of this alien invasion unscathed?
Yellow Book is a master of parody while Cheng-Yu Yang excels at creating shonen manga. They have collaborated on this work to pay homage to the mecha comics from the Shōwa era. The plot intertwines the heat of war with social criticism, taking readers on a brand new experience.
