For some, the idea of coming back to life is a dream come true. For Keiji Kiriya, however, it’s a living nightmare.
Keiji is one of many soldiers standing as the last line of defense against an unstoppable invading force known as The Mimics. Keiji is stationed off the coast of Japan, outfitted with a state-of-the-art mechanized suit called a jacket, and sent into his first sortie. It doesn’t take long for everything to go wrong, and Keiji to feel death’s embrace. Before blacking out, however, he manages to kill a rather “unusual” mimic.
He then wakes up, and realizes it’s the previous morning.
