In an alternate timeline, advanced outer space creatures known as “Weiss” attack humanity. Overwhelmed and lacking other alternatives for survival, humanity decided to make an escape. They created a spacecraft out of the moon’s crust and began their life of roaming around the stars.
The fear of Weiss remained with them as they roamed the emptiness. They kept an eye out for something they could fashion into a weapon against their invaders. That is how they came across higher-dimensional energy that could be used to fight off the Weiss. There was only one catch: women could only use the energy.
They made an anti-Weiss weapon, called the Alice Gear.
There were anti-Weiss organizations like AEGIS set up to handle Alice Gear and exterminate Weiss. These organizations sought women with a talent for Alice Gear control, called Actresses.
In time, more organizations sprouted but had to have a license from the main one, AEGIS.
This is the story of girls wearing “Alice Gear” who save humanity as they roam the universe!
The series will feature a wide range of enemies, from alien invaders to mechanical monsters, and promises intense, fast-paced battles.
