Plot Outline:
In 2009 gas station attendant Yuji Kaido is diagnosed with the Prophecy Syndrome, a terminal condition for which there is no cure. He and others similarly inflicted agree to be put into cryogenic freeze “for a year or two” while research is advanced towards finding a cure for his condition. Every true sci-fi fan knows that stories involving any form of cryostasis rarely end without complication, though, and this one is no different. When Yuji finally wakes in 2031, it is to a horror story: the Earth has been overrun by giant buglike creatures called Blue, who turn humans into slimy green balls to save for snacking. Most of humanity has been wiped out either by the Blue or the desperate attempts to stop them; all that remain are the Sleepers like Yuji, a few isolated pockets of survivors on the surface, and the few hundred thousand lucky souls able to migrate to a collection of orbital space stations called Second Earth. Heavily-armed Recovery Teams have been sent planetside from Earth 2 to extract any remaining Sleepers, whose “illness” may actually be a key to the ultimate defeat of the Blue, and it is during one such harrowing rescue attempt that Yuji awakes. The first person he connects to is Marlene, a soldier and Armored Shrike (mecha) pilot who is dispassionately dedicated to seeing Yuji brought to Earth 2 at any cost. Though they eventually succeed, two people cannot go through the trials they do together without it having an effect on both. But the story is hardly over when they finally reach Second Earth; it just moves into its second stage. . .
