The year is 2035. Japan has entered a worst case scenario. A succession of natural disasters, an economic crisis, a severely declining birthrate and aging society, a falling population, and deteriorating public safety...

To make matters worse, a massive terrorist organization called Dark Crusade is running rampant in the desolated regional cities, and robberies and abductions have become everyday occurrences. In order to keep the peace and protect themselves the citizens of Eight City form a vigilante group called the Superhero Society. Layabout Makoto (Black Ranger) is fleeing from black market loan sharks when he is scouted by the Superhero Society. For some reason he is appointed as the leader of six other heroes, every one of them an oddball. As the Eight Rangers, they are directionless, and the furthest thing from a superhero team that you could imagine. That is until they meet the legendary superhero, Captain Silver. Under the guidance of Captain Silver, the Eight Rangers resolve to stand up and fight to protect the weak in their corrupt society. Their motto: “Protect humanity, and let no-one fall through the cracks.”

Will the Eight Rangers succeed in becoming true heroes?
