The story focuses and revolves around the 108th Guard Squad, stationed in Aomori. A poorly equipped unit with very little military standing, it is often viewed as a 'reject camp' for pilots not making the grade for the elite units based in Hokkaido. The apparent helpless nature of this force is hardly a deterrent for the encroaching enemy armies, ever closing in on both the 108th and the rest of the empire. The young pilots of the 108th, who had dreamed on returning home, are plunged forcefully and unwillingly into a war.
In the year 1999, mankind is fighting a war against Phantom Beasts - alien beings that are focused on taking over the planet. To combat this menace, high school defense forces have been set up across the country. Ishida Sara is a recent officer graduate who has found herself assigned to the defense force in Aomori; but what awaits her is a group of inexperienced students with no desire to train. When a Phantom Beast attacks a nearby town, the team sets out; but with her subordinates out of control and ignoring her orders, Sara's first mission results in failure. Frustrated and surrounded by her own doubts, fellow cadets who hate her, and the constant presence of HQ investigators, can Sara struggle against the odds and hold herself, and her position, together?
