It is 199X A.D. In Kushiro, Hokkaido, three bodies of Dragonite appear. Possessing overwhelming destructive force, they attack the city. They also awaken the evil Jashin Drago from the holy seal he was trapped in. 200 years ago, Drago was trapped in the seal by a holy warrior with the tattooed mark of the Liger. Assuming that the warrior is dead, Drago and Empress Zara are free to conquer the Earth using their army of biomechanical beasts. Even the Japan Self-Defense Forces are no match for the Dragonites' awesome power. One of the people fleeing is the protagonist, a milquetoast 16 year old boy named Ken Taiga. Unbeknownst to the Dragonites, Ken realizes that he is the descendant of the Liger warrior! In a burst of anger, Ken's Liger birthmark appears, and he rises his palm into the air, shouting the henshin command, "LIGER!!!", which then covers him in demonic long-haired biomechanical armor. Ken transforms into Jushin Liger to fight the evil forces of the Dragonite! (Wikipedia)
Perverted, cocky Ken used to live a normal life until several giant monsters crashed onto his city. In the midst of their carnage Ken’s secret crush was killed, and his grandfather seriously injured. Hope seemed lost for the inhabitants of the city and the world, until Ken discovered that he holds the key to summon the pilotable Beast-God Riger! Within the massive bio armor, Ken must now battle the invading monsters to protect Earth, and keep them from awakening a demon within the Demon Stone – a demon who will put a stop to all human life for good!
