Border Defence Agency was established to counter the attacks from the 'Neighbours,' beings from the other world possessing unknown forces. A low-rank Border agent, Osamu Mikumo (voiced by Yuki Kaji), teams up with a Neighbour, Yuma Kuga (voiced by Tomo Muranaka), and a childhood friend, Chika Amatori (voiced by Nao Tamura). They strive to win through the Rank Wars within the Border to be selected for the away squads to the 'Neighbourhood,' the other world. Meanwhile, another attack from the Neighbourhood was detected. Mikado City is still damaged from the second large-scale invasion by the largest military nation, Aftokrator. To prevent panic among the city and citizens, Border arranges a confidential interception based on the foresight of Yuichi Jin (voiced by Yuichi Nakamura) by mainly deploying selected A-Rank elite squads. But when a Gate appears, and Attacker rank #1 Kei Tachikawa (voiced by Daisuke Namikawa) set to take action, Jin sees an ominous future.
