The emergence of gigantic monsters “kaiju” and the ultimate existence that can even destroy other kaijus, Godzilla. After half-century of the war against the kaijus, the human race decided to leave the planet afer suffering numerous defeats. In the year 2048, only people who were chosen by an artificial intelligence under the control of the central government were allowed to board an interstellar immigration ark titled, Aratrum.
