Overview
It is the story of Yuji Kaido, an average guy who was diagnosed with a serious disease in the near future and was put into cryogenic stasis. When he wakes up, he discovers that a race of insectoid beings called "Blue" have overrun the Earth and that he may very well be the key to the survival of the human race.

The show draws heavy influences from many different science fiction sources, the most prevelent is Starship Troopers, with aliens that look like bugs and the resistance riding in Exoskeleton-like mechas.
