‘Another Japan’ is where the stage is set for this diverse symposium of superhumans.
Set in the ‘age of the gods,’ the stage is of a Japan set 20 years after a war where exponential growth has occurred.
Imagine what were to happen if all superhumans who have been created across time existed at the same time? Superhumans that all have different birthdays, characteristics, and all are unique. There are titans from outer space, Life-forms from a fantasy world, beings that were designated as spirits from olden times, Cyborgs that were created in scientific environments, forgotten relics of great civilizations long past, etc.
Some have made no effort to hide that they are superhuman and have become quite popular in everyday society, while others fight in the shadows while concealing their identities. There are those who oppose the superhumans as well; organizations that conduct their activities in secret.
The government of Japan though, has taken various steps in order to maintain peace and order. Thus, the ‘Superhuman Population Research Institute’ was established by the Ministry of Health, Labor, and Welfare as an auxiliary organization. It’s nickname is the ‘Superhuman Bureau,’ and its job is to discover and preserve the existence of new superhumans while providing care and safety for them. One member of the organization, Jirou Hitoyoshi is the protagonist of this story.
