Thirteen years ago, Tokyo was split in two as a section (now called “Old Tokyo”) was levitated high above the rest of the city (“New Tokyo”)….
Kanata, a boy who was born and raised at ground level in New Tokyo, has a strange mark on his right hand. All his life, he wanted to know the meaning of that mysterious marking.
One day, a girl with blue hair called Sora realized that Old Tokyo would soon fall to earth. She left the aerial city to find Kanata in the hopes of averting this disaster. “Only you can save the world!” Sora exclaimed, inviting Kanata to the Old Tokyo floating in the air.
There, Kanata encountered many monsters including the vampire siblings Toya and Yuna, who have a strong desire to save their world. The enemy was Senju, leader of the “Liberation Front”, who planned to bring Old Tokyo crashing down on New Tokyo. Kanata, Sora, and the vampires join forces to stop him.
