While Frank roams the wilderness he meets Hattie, an emotionally distressed young girl whose parents are killed in the first 'close encounter' war. Oddly enough she is able to communicate with Frank and soon after they are taken into custody by a secret agency known only as 'Funeral'. Meanwhile, Takuto wakes up in a hospital bed with his life in shambles, and his face disfigured. Motivated by vengeance and heart break, Takuto accepts an offer from the mysterious 'Mr. X' and receives a new identity as a ranking Funeral officer named Ryu Soma.
Takuto’s relationship with his girlfriend Maki is on the rocks; she’s devoted to her research and keeps things bottled up inside, leaving their relationship uncertain. Life takes a tragic turn, however, when Takuto visits the source of Maki’s research: a giant metal being named Frank. While running an experiment to awaken Frank, the building collapses – and Takuto is the only survivor. Months later, Takuto awakens in a hospital with vengeance in his heart; and when the mysterious Dr. X offers him a new identity that he can use to bring down Frank, he accepts. With his new name of Ryu Soma and his new position in Funeral, a military organization charged with destroying alien invaders, Takuto sets forth to exact his revenge...
